Camila Cabello embodied all of us last year when she attended Taylor Swift’s model-studded Halloween bash dressed as a “Grandma Who Couldn’t Find Her Cat Because She Sat on It.” The look became an instant classic and was a stark contrast to the slinkier costumes Swift’s other friends, like Gigi Hadid and Martha Hunt, sported that evening. No shade to anyone who opts for a sexy Halloween costume, but Cabello’s outfit just felt so relatable – we’ve all been in a situation where it feels like you missed a dress-code memo.
And during her interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Monday evening, Cabello finally opened up about what it was like to be the “grandma” in a sea of sexy cub scouts.
“I didn’t [leave the costume on for the whole party],” she said. “I walk in, and it was, like, Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt – these models – and I just walk in, like (goofy face). Then these two attractive guys come in, so I went to the bathroom. I had this black turtleneck and pants under it, and I went to the bathroom and took [the costume] off. And then I came back out, and I was like, ‘I was really hot.'”
We’ve all been there. Everyone knows what it’s like to attend a T.Swift Halloween party in a gag costume but immediately rip it off because two guys with washboard abs walk in. Okay, maybe we don’t, but Cabello did what 98 percent of humans with a pulse would’ve done in this scenario.
Honestly, though, Cabello should’ve kept the costume on. If the guys at the party couldn’t appreciate her A+ costume, then they weren’t worth her time.
Watch Cabello tell this story for yourself in the video, here.
Let this be a lesson to everyone who wants to dress as “Grandma Who Sits on a Cat” this Halloween: Own it. (Unless you actually feel overheated – in which case, yes, take it off.)
