Uptown, downtown---it seems chicsters will travel all over the island for the chance to dress up and throw on a mask, non? Last year, El Museo del Barrio held its annual Dia de los Meurtos (that's Day of the Dead, for those of you who don't hablo) at its Fifth Ave and 105th Street digs, but this year, the party moved downtown to a sprawling rooftop space in Tribeca. The differences ended there. Guests still enjoyed free-flowing cocktails, a fabulously festive dance performance, and skeletons everywhere one looked. Melissa George and Bibhu Mohapatra, who arrived ensemble post-FGIs, even made their own spooky friend...

What is Snob? It’s an extremely well-written, well-executed, well-art-directed magazine---that only those fluent in Russian can read. But they have budgets and direction, thanks to the intellectual billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov, and last night the Moscow-based folks at the magazine hosted a big U.S. launch party in Nicole Kidman’s apartment building. The bash featured everything you’d expect from a Russian party: good food (fresh salmon station and lobster salads), plenty of premium booze, and not, one, not two, but four performances, including one by lovely jazz great Cassandra Wilson.

“The editorial staff has produced both a beautiful publication and a vibrant website, utilizing the best of old and new forms of media,” said an excited Prokhorov. The project’s supporters included Francesco Clemente, Olya Thompson, Alex Soldier, Yvonne Force Villareal, Anton Ginzburg, and a fresh-from-Moscow Aliona Doletskaya. “I’m on a whirlwind trip,” she told us. “I’m leaving tomorrow, unfortunately.” But the former Vogue empress has a big project in the works. Also standing out among all the Russians? Sasha Pivovarova, who was still pondering her Halloween costume. “What can I do with pair of white wings,” she wondered. “Can I be a McQueen angel?”

Anna Dello Russo may not have celebrated Halloween as a little girl growing up in Bari, Italy, but she’s more than made up for lost time. ADR tells Nowness.com that it’s all about gold, baby. “Gold is my new black. I always loved gold since I was a kid. Now I love gold clothes, gold hair. I just love the color. My favorite historical hero is Tutankhamun the Egyptian. He wore gold, in a gold house and he is still sleeping in that gold outfit...”

It happens to the best of us: Halloween creeps up, and you're still totally inspiration-less. You don't have to have a Heidi Klum-calibur costume to get in the spirit, though---why not throw on one or all of these creepy Aoi Kotsuhiroi rings with your most dramatic black frock? With materials like urushi lacquer-covered horn, antique Roman 24 karat gold beads, urushi lacquered silk threads, human hair (really!), and pit-fired porcelain skulls, they'll certainly put you in a spooky state of mind. THE DETAILS: Aoi Kotsuhiroi rings, $1,498 - 1,998 each, www.oaknyc.com

We told you what Costello Tagliapietra, Vera Wang, and Kelly Cutrone are going to be for Halloween (that would be garden gnomes, Cameron Diaz, and the Virgin Mary, respectively---check out the video here!), but what about what one chicette isn't going to be? "I wanted to go as the Avatar girl, but I actually am going to be working in Mexico," Alessandra Ambrosio told Chic earlier this week. "I think it might be too complicated in Mexico! I’ll be sweating and melting, and I have to be in an airplane the next morning so I’d be all blue!" There's always next year...
