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...

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!”
