Word on the blogosphere is actress Angelina Jolie picked L'Wren Scott to design her wedding gown.
What would possess Chris Brown to dress up as a member of the Taliban for Halloween? Is it me, or is this just in completely poor taste? Hasn't he already done enough to scare women? I just don't get it. Thoughts?
Halloween? Really. Who has time to think about trick-or-treating when we've spent the last five days scared to death from Hurricane Sandy? Some of us are still without electricity and internet access. What is scarier than that?
I was oficially over all things that go boo in the night until I found this photo floating around Facebook this afternoon. Aren't these the cutest versions of Fat Albert and Cosby Kids ever - (FYI Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids were based on the childhood antics of famous Philadelphian Bill Cosby. The cartoon, that ran through the 1970s, used the junkyards of North Philadelphia as its backdrop.)
If this isn't a Philadelphia-appropriate Halloween costume, I don't know what is.
In need of some funky specs?
Then look for the Warby Parker schoolbus parked in your hood. The locally born eye wear company is in the midst of The Warby Parker Class Trip and we are the third stop on the 9-city tour. It started October 10 in New York and will wrap up in Los Angeles in February.
Think of it as a yellow cheese bus turned traveling pop-up shop.
Dazzling, sparkling, beautiful baubles can be all yours this weekend. For the buying, of course.

I loved the heather grey and lace dress Michelle Obama donned during Monday night's debates. I later learned it was designed by Thom Brown and that FLOTUS wore it the second night of the Democratic National Convention. Good choice. It was serious, yet playful. Dark, but not maudlin.
I was all ready to like Ann Romney's choice, too. The emerald green shade was striking. The clear necklace was big, but I liked the lightness of the accessory. Romney's hair and makeup was close to flawless. Then she stood up and I saw the whole look - it was actually a jacket and skirt - and I shook my head in major fashion disapproval.
The ombre-floral thing she had going on at the hem of the skirt looked really matronly on her. The thin belt was a style no-no. I wonder how Oscar de la Renta felt when he saw it.
Presidential candidates Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are walking across a fashion tightrope.
How do they put forth their best images without being too distracting? Just look at the enormity of their sartorial jobs: Both men have to look compassionate, yet strong. Romney must be careful not to look too much like a wealthy one-percenter, while President Obama can't come across as too forceful, yet he must be presidential.
In the first debate, President Obama opted for a navy blue Hart Schaffner Marx suit, while Romney went with a cleaner, stronger black. His American flag lapel pin beamed larger than life.
Let's end this week on a sweet note.
