Disney's Halloweentown 2: Williamsburg, BK: For most of us, Halloween comes but once a year. Not in Williamsburg. I'm pretty sure I've seen that leather cowboy guy near the Bedford L stop. {Halloween or Williamsburg}

If Your Coffee Table Has Been Looking Less Than Chic Lately: Fashion photog Patrick Demarchelier is putting out a 248-page photo book of all things Dior, from the house's conception in 1947 to today. The book will cost $139 and comes out November 15. There's nothing wrong with picking up an early Christmakwanzakah present for yourself... {WWD}

Paula Deen Cooking Up a Clothing Line: The TV chef, who apparently already has a butter-flavored lip balm for sale (WHAT), told Jay Leno she's got a clothing line in the works. No actual details yet, but she sounds really excited in the clip, and that's what really counts, right? {Styleite}

Shaquille O'Neal's Sporty Sunglasses: The star of my all-time favorite film (Kazaam, duh) has teamed up with Forever K Michael eyewear on a line of sporty sunglasses. It's safe to say all my wishes have been granted. {Refinery29}

American Apparel Loses Chief Business Development Officer: Marty Staff just started at AA in March. Seriously, this company has more drama than your mama. And that's potentially a lot of drama. {WWD}

Valentino is a Special Guest at Pitti Uomo: According to a press release, the iconic fashion house will show its '12-13 F/W collection at the men's trade show next January in Florence.
