Ariana Grande, one of the biggest pop superstars on the planet, teamed up with her former “Victorious” costar Elizabeth Gillies to pull off a series of “Showgirls” costumes. Maligned at the time of its 1995 release, “Showgirls” has emerged as a true cult classic in director Paul Verhoeven’s filmography. The film follows Nomi (Elizabeth Berkley), a woman who finds herself roaming the streets of Vegas. With aspirations and dreams to be the world’s best dancer, she climbs the ladder of the city’s chaotic and seedy nightlife industry. One of the most memorable and controversial projects from the ’90s, “Showgirls” continues to be a key part of the decade’s cinematic canon and it’s sort of amazing how Grande and Gillies’ on-point costumes will likely implore a whole batch of new viewers to watch the film.
For their group costume, Grande dressed up as Nomi, while Gillies took on the role of Cristal Connors (Gina Gershon), Nomi’s sort of frenemy. The duo, who have been friends since their “Victorious” days, snapped several photos dressed up as their respective “Showgirls” characters. From Nomi’s classic pink fit to Gina’s regal look in the dressing room, the two absolutely killed it with their homage. Take to their separate Instagram accounts and you’ll find solo snaps of Grande giving her best Berkley impression and Gillies in Connors’ “Goddess” outfit. When it comes to accuracy and vibes, Grande and Gillies definitely have the best Halloween costumes.
