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...

Jack Vartanian has a lot of fans worldwide (the famous blonde ones like Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz come to mind), and the São Paulo resident has even got an apartment in Gotham to please his American contingent. “I’m here almost every two months these days,” smiled the Brazilian. Last night, Vanessa von Bismarck organized a chic little dinner at Le Charlot where guests like Allison Aston and Yigal Azrouel got some face time with the designer, his new collection, and some good bottles of wine. Vartanian even has his own New York ritual by now. “I try to arrive during the weekend and then go immediately to Sushi Seki,” he said. “By the time I wake in them morning, I know where to get my fresh croissants.” And he even has a new obsession to boast about: “I've been riding a lot of motor bikes lately in this mountain area right outside of São Paulo,” he said. “The altitude there is pretty high so I've been thinking I should actually buy [a house] there!”

Mandy Coon may be a newbie at colette, but we have a feeling everyone will want to snag this lamb leather bunny bag, inspired by Pamela Sunday’s sculptures. The metal chain adds a bit of edge to an otherwise uber-cute accessory. Plus, the long rabbit ears provide plenty of room to stash all the essentials. THE DETAILS: colette, $614

The Daily Wonders: What Did You Do Before All That Chic?

What we really wanted to know last night at the CFDA New Member induction ceremony at Vera Wang’s apartment was what the new members were up to---before their current chic-ness. We asked, you dished: What was your last non-fashion job?

L’Wren Scott
“Babysitting. I guess I was pretty good because all the kids are still okay, and they kept asking me to come back.”

Sophie Theallet
“I never got one! But once I was a secretary for my father when he was a doctor. After that, it was all fashion. At 18, I was at Gaultier and never looked back."

Karen Erickson
“I started doing jewelry in 1983, but before that, I was Mandie's mom.”

Rebecca Minkoff
"I was an ice-cream server when I was 16. I used to sneak ice cream in the back and I eventually got caught by my boss. I had to work longer hours."

George Esquivel

"I used to drive a truck! The last year I did that was 1999. I did construction, plumbing---all those things."

Lubov Azria
"I was a clerk for an injury claims lawyer. I think I was done after a week!"

Adam Kimmel
"I worked in a bank for a summer as an intern."

Waris Ahluwalia

"Shooting I Am Love. I think I have those every year. With a fashion job, I control everything. But on a project like a film, I have such a small bracket of responsibility. 'Say this, do this, be there.' That's it!"
