tippi hedren wore her finest even while under vicious attack.

Aside from the leaves changing colors and our corner coffee shop bringing back spiced hot chocolate, there are two things we love most about October: Our annual It issue hits newsstands and, duh, Halloween. So naturally we decided to indulge a bit and combine these two amazing things... The result: A weekly countdown of our It Horror Heroines! So invite a friend over, lock the front door, and get ready to get your scream on (and some major Halloween costume inspiration, too).

This week we're honoring (and copying) the costume design in Alfred Hitchcock's film, The Birds. We still have no idea why those birds were on a rampage (birds will be birds), but watching those black crows tear up Tippi Hedren's perfect, pale green suit was a bit hard to watch.

Her '60s California socialite look was made complete by all of the right type of ladylike accessories. In fact her whole pastel look is right on point for this season. So is the movie itself if you're in the mood to be absolutely terrified. Here's how we'd get the look if we were the ones being viciously attacked by birds.
