Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

A great Halloween costume takes commitment, and Elliot Marcille had plenty of it. He hauled an old-school boom box throughout the entire Halloween party at the Chicago Athletic Hotel (an annual event promoted by the Empty Bottle). After a friend told him that he reminded her of John Cusack, Elliot carefully plotted his Lloyd Dobler act, all the way down to the character’s mannerisms. Props and attention to detail were also visible in a few other partygoers, pictured below.

Liz’s iconic look doesn’t need any introductions. She and her “Choupette” (designer Karl Lagerfeld’s cat, who has more than 89,000 Instagram followers in real life) were heading to a Lagerfeld-and-Choupette-only costume party later in the evening.Credit: Isa Giallorenzo
