Her every day ensembles have enough unique flair to be costumes on their own, so it's no surprise that Katy Perry is already on the lookout for the perfect Halloween look. She recently tweeted about a costume idea she's considering, "I just interviewed @Karl_Lagerfeld... he was so lovely. I think I'll be him for Halloween-collar, boots, gloves and all!" The quirky singing sensation isn't the only one piecing together her outfit for October 31st. Before deleting her twitter account Miley Cyrus messaged to Ashley Tisdale saying, "Who are you gonna be for Halloween? I'm Pocahontas." Tisdale promptly responded, "Alice in Wonderland!"

For the 15th anniversary of her perfume Cashmere Mist (left, $70; at sephora.com), Donna Karan launches a capsule collection of-what else?-lush cashmere basics, such as tunics, scarves, cardigans and leggings. "There aren't words to express my love of cashmere," says the designer. "Its simply the most sensual way to embrace the skin." She selected Milla Jovovich to be the face of both the clothing collection and the debut edition of Cashmere Mist Luxe. "We wanted to update the scent without changing it too much, " Karan says. "Luxe is a more intense version, and the bottle is a modern interpretation of the original."

EXCLUSIVE: Glee's Jayma Mays on Gleek-Chic Style!

Jayma Mays - Glee - What's Right Now
Courtesy of FOX

When we're not chair-dancing to Glee's latest musical number, we're coveting the mod style of neat freak guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury, played by Jayma Mays. "I like to call Emma's wardrobe quirky-chic!" says the actress. "While her outfits are always very put-together, they are still fun and flirty with bows and flowers and the colors of sorbet." The character wears tone-on-tone pencil skirts, blouses and vintage-inspired sweaters, all topped off with bold jewelry. "It's amazing what a coral-colored necklace can do to a plain brown cardigan," says Mays. And if she could nab a piece from her character's jewelry box? "My favorite so far has been the owl sweater clips [from the second episode]…these should definitely be making a comeback, right?! Marc Jacobs, can you hear me?" Doubtless, the designer is taking notes along with the rest of us.

Tune into Glee on Wednesday nights, 9/8 central on Fox.

Following in the tradition of Jennifer Lopez's hugely successful fragrance empire (think Glow by J.Lo, Deseo, and Live), today she's launching My Glow, a musky lavender scent inspired by her relationship with her children and we got this exclusive behind-the-scenes photo from the ad campaign! Love the ultra-feminine bottle? The shape is inspired by soaps from Lopez's own nursery, and the cherub cap is dual-sided to represent each of her twins: one side a baby boy, like her son Max, and the other a girl, like her daughter Emme. Be sure to check out the box the fragrance comes in-the entire design mimics J. Lo's baby shower invitations! My Glow (50 mL, $49.50) is available at department stores nationwide.

The countdown to the October 25th wedding of real estate mogul/jewelry designer (and daughter of Donald) Ivanka Trump to newspaper publisher Jared Kushner has begun. This weekend, the New York Timesrevealed three of the couple's wedding registries, which include a Water Lily bowl from Crate amp Barrel, a KitchenAid Artisan Stand mixer from Williams Sonoma and sterling silver picture frames from Tiffany. ("yes, I registered for a spatula...but is that really news worthy?" Ivanka Tweeted after reading the story in her Sunday paper.) Instead of managing several registries you can use myregistry.com, where you can choose items from any online store to add to one centralized wedding wish list. The perfect one-stop shopping resource for the bride-to-be who needs silverware and stilettos.
