In honor of Halloween, we thought we’d take a look at one of the cinema’s most stylish monsters: the ever-underrated Bela Lugosi.

The Romanian B-movie star may seem like an unlikely icon, but there’s more to him than meets the eye. You may not be going for the Dracula look, but a bit of mystery never hurt anyone and Lugosi used it so well he ended up with a string of hits and a permanent spot in film history.

And if you’re wearing a costume tonight, you won’t find a better example of how to wear it with style.

—R.B.
