While others are parading around on Halloween--dressed as Sarah Palin or covered in guts--you can be the true standout by adopting the old-fashioned charm of a classic mask.

These elegant facial masks were made popular again by Cirque D' Soleil, channeling the tradition of Viennese and French costume parties. These striking examples of authentic masks will be the ultimate show topper.

Implications - Designers are going for elegant designs that reflect the decadence of European style, but still incorporate the element of fantasy that fashion is based on. While events that require dressy outfits are fairly occasional, it's good for brands to come out with this style to balance out with their more casual clothes.
