Our on­line kweens dressed as the Chanels from Scream Queens for a week. What hap­pened next was to DIE for.

WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE FASH­ION ON SCREAM QUEENS BE­FORE THIS?

Sammy: Pink ev­ery­thing, are you kid­ding me?! I ab­so­lutely LOVED the fash­ion on Scream Queens from the get-go. Bianca: I al­ways thought Scream Queens fash­ion was over the top in the best way pos­si­ble. I loved it.

WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO WORK LOOK?

Sammy: I’m ob­sessed with the ‘70s and ‘90s so I love flared pants and floaty dresses, and usu­ally pair them with white train­ers or black boots and a choker. My hair and makeup are pretty sim­ple, some­times I curl my hair on the ends for a bit of vol­ume and go for neu­tral eyes, dewy skin, false lashes and a brown lip. Bianca: My per­sonal style in­volves a lot of black pieces. For work I like to keep it stylish be­cause the world is your run­way! I will al­ways have my hair out, usu­ally curled, and my makeup rou­tine in­cludes ev­ery­thing that makes me feel glam.

WHAT WAS THE HAIR AND MAKEUP TRANS­FOR­MA­TION LIKE?

Sammy: Our amaz­ing makeup artist first made my skin flaw­less and con­toured fol­lowed by a dra­matic AF eye that screamed ~don’t mess with me~. Next came the per­fectly smooth hairdo Chanel rocks and I BE­CAME her. The dra­matic eye makeup was pretty full-on and out of my com­fort zone, but I took so many self­ies, ‘cos it’s not ev­ery day you get to look like a Scream Queen. Bianca: My trans­for­ma­tion into Ari­ana Grande’s Chanel char­ac­ter was great be­cause I love her so much. I got to rock her sig­na­ture high pony, cat’s eye and con­tour­ing that was ~on fleek~. I felt about ten thou­sand times more sassy and con­fi­dent.

HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU SAW THE OUT­FITS?

Sammy: Pink is my favourite colour but for some rea­son, I never wear it. So when I saw the silk and the fur and the cape dress, I knew I was about to be liv­ing my best life. Bianca: When I saw the out­fits I was a lit­tle ner­vous be­cause they’re so not work ap­propes but who cares when this is clas­si­fied as ‘work’.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE WHEN YOU HAD THE FULL LOOKS ON?

Sammy: My DOLLY team ab­so­lutely loved it. But as for ev­ery­one else? Walk­ing around the build­ing was hi­lar­i­ous. Es­pe­cially at the end of the day when I hopped in the lift and couldn’t escape the ~looks~ from other peo­ple but I gotta ad­mit, I loved the at­ten­tion. Bianca: I got a lot of in­ter­est­ing looks from peo­ple. Not ev­ery­body in our build­ing is DOLLY staff, so you can imag­ine what peo­ple were think­ing when I was strut­ting around in se­quins, fur and so much makeup. I think peo­ple were too afraid to make com­ments be­cause they had no idea if I was be­ing se­ri­ous or not. I went to Star­bucks and that was def­i­nitely an ex­pe­ri­ence – so many judge­men­tal looks, but I werked it be­cause I was feelin’ fierce.

DID IT CHANGE THE WAY YOU BE­HAVED AT WORK?

Sammy: A bit of Chanel sass came out in my meet­ings when I was dressed as her, and that was amaz­ing. I felt so con­fi­dent strut­ting around the build­ing and strangely pow­er­ful, like I could han­dle any­thing thrown my way. Bianca: This is what I loved most. It made me feel like I could be more con­fi­dent in my ideas for work. Who isn’t go­ing to lis­ten to the girl dressed in hot-pink sparkles?!

DID YOU FEEL LIKE A DIF­FER­ENT PER­SON IN YOUR LOOKS?

Sammy: I did, but like an­other ver­sion of my­self. This is how I would dress if I was a singer or a rich Hol­ly­wood heiress. Bianca: I felt like a more en­hanced ver­sion of my­self.

WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM THE EX­PE­RI­ENCE?

Sammy: I learned that I need to buy more pink (which I ended up do­ing) and how the power of dress­ing a cer­tain way can to­tally trans­form the way you be­have, walk and in­ter­act with oth­ers. Bianca: I learned that feel­ing good on the out­side makes you feel even bet­ter on the in­side. In­cor­po­rat­ing more pink into my wardrobe makes me feel sassy, cute and GIRLY AF, which is the best feel­ing ever, by the way. I also re­alised I should wear my hair off my face more in­stead of hid­ing be­hind my long hair all the time. It’s all about that con­fi­dence.
