The coronavirus quarantine, which takes place in most countries around the world and prevents people from doing their usual activities, has undeniably caused them to feel bored. That is why we have already seen a number of interesting challenges since the beginning of the worldwide quarantine, with the latest one being the pillow challenge. Here is what you need to know.

1. What is the pillow challenge?
The premise of the pillow challenge could not be simpler. To take part in the challenge, all you need to do is attach a pillow to your body to make it look like a dress and add a belt to give the pillow a more dress-like shape. You can use any pillows you have, but unusual pillowcases make the challenge even more interesting.
Needless to say, the fashionistas of Instagram have taken the challenge to another level, accessorizing their pillow looks with designer handbags, shoes, jewelry, sunglasses, and expert-level makeup looks. To sum it up, the pillow challenge is an extremely entertaining way to kill the quarantine boredom.
2. Celebrity versions of the pillow challenge
Most new internet trends are started by ordinary users, but celebrities are always quick to catch up and present their own versions. The pillow challenge is no exception, and to date, there are already dozens of celebrities who took part in the challenge. Here are our favourite versions to far.
Perhaps, the most impressive version of the pillow challenge was uploaded by the superstar actress Halle Berry. Like everything she does, her rendition of the challenge was super stylish and looked like a designer outfit with minimal effort. Halle accessorized her look with a pair of sunglasses, a chic hat, and kept the outfit monochrome.

The popular Ghanaian singer Becca was so inspired by the challenge that she uploaded not one, not two, but three versions of the pillow challenge. For her first version, she used a fluffy white pillow that she accessorized with white Gucci socks and a white beanie hat.

Her second rendition of the pillow challenge looked like a total Gucci look with the same Gucci socks and beanie, an elegant Gucci belt, and a dreamy Gucci scarf, all on top of a plain white pillow that made the designer accessories stand out even more.

For her final version of the challenge, Becca chose a timeless pattern – a striped pillowcase with accessories in the same colour scheme. We especially loved the sandals with an unusual heel – they are not only perfect for an outfit like this, but also very eye-catching.
