Costume suggestions needed

I'm about to head down to SoCal for a week-long company meeting. Although I will mostly be working the entire time, they are also having a couple parties in the evenings, one is a formal dress party, and the other is a theme party.

The theme this year is "A-List". The idea is to impersonate a celebrity. Just wondering if anybody had any ideas of something that would be fun but easy to do. I know you don't really know what I have in my closet, but assume a normal range of clothes.

For example, someone suggested wearing an orange jumpsuit. This would be fun but I don't have one handy (and no time to go shopping for one).

Any suggestions?

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Go as Britney Spears. You could pull out all the clothes so worn out and ugly that you'd never consider wearing them in public.

I've seen a few celebs when I was in SoCal. Aside from special events or on stage, they are pretty much like the rest of us. Still, for men a "Hard Boiled Detective" outfit or for ladies a "Red Carpet" outfit might do.

I can't believe it took 10 replies to get to the most obvious solution imaginable.

I decided to wear something semi-trashy and handcuffs, go as Lindsay Lohan or some such. Thanks all for the suggestions!

Your boyfriend's scarf would be quick and simple. We already know you look good in it.
