Despite every indication to the contrary, a Halloween costume doesn’t have to be over-the-top to be brilliant.

Caught outside Heidi Klum’s Halloween bash at Lavo, Russell Simmons costume doesn’t look that different from something he might wear on the street (give or take a few decades) but style is style. If you’re an old-school hip-hop legend, Adidas and chains are always going to look pretty good on you. And we’d guess he didn’t have to do too much digging to find the right ones.

As for a blow-by-blow of each item…we’d start here.
