They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery - but when you're Monica Lewinsky the same rule does not always apply.

Monica Lewinsky on What It is Like to Become a Halloween Costume: There is a Fine Line Between Clever and Cruel


In a new column for Vanity Fair, the contributing editor writes about her cringe-worthy experience of being reduced to a sexually-charged Halloween costume in the wake of her affair with former President Bill Clinton.



"Thankfully, I have never gone to a Halloween party where I've bumped up against, well, myself," Lewinsky writes. "I did, however, get an idea of what that might be like when, several years ago, I went to see the movie Made of Honor, starring Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan. It opens with a scene in which Dempsey, dressed as Bill Clinton, mingles at a Halloween party - with three Monica Lewinskys - all clad in blue dresses and berets, holding cigars. (Cringe Factor: 10.)"



Lewinsky goes on to explore what she calls the "darker side of the Halloween costume as social commentary," writing that the symbolism of one of the sure-fire most popular costumes of the season - Caitlyn Jenner - has many layers - not all of them necessarily positive.
