How To Throw The Best "Les Miserables" Themed Oscar Party

We've got all the steps you need to have the ultimate Academy Awards party.

Posted on

Calling all Les Misérables fans: The 2013 Academy Awards are coming up this Sunday, Feb. 24 and your film du jour is up for a lot of awards (eight, to be exact).

So, if you're hoping to host a soiree because you love the musical, Hugh Jackman, or seeing Anne Hathaway with a pixie cut, we're here to show you how to get the party started.


If you're going as Fantine...

Then you'll need to think of clothes that would be suitable for a factory girl circa 1820. Chances are you won't find a long dress that covers your legs, arms and bust, unless you're near a polygamous compound, so go for something simple without a lot of flair.


If you'd like to dress as Eponine...

This should be pretty simple, congrats! Grab a tank top, a belt with a large buckle, a flowing skirt, and pair all of those things with combat boots and beach hair. That, my friends, is how you rock a street urchin look.

And if you're going as Inspector Javert...

The most crucial aspects of dressing as your favorite determined authority figure would have to be his knee-high boots, the long coat and sensible top hat. Score any one of those and you're golden.
