What We Love About October

Posted in:

What We Love About October

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (October 3--11). From this high up, the desert looks ... yup, still brown.

Saying good-bye to Vista hell, and hello to Windows 7 (October 22). You can stop sucking up to the IT guys now.

The two-hour season premiere of Ugly Betty (October 9). Do a shot every time you see a poncho.

Debut of the 2010 Audi A5 Cabriolet convertible. The only time it's OK for a guy to insist that you "drop your top."

Juicy Couture's new perfume, Couture Couture. A favorite of Duran Duran and Boutros Boutros-Ghali.

Mil Besos, Colombian-born fashion photographer Ruven Afanador's new book of flamenco dancer portraits (October 1). Dancing With the Stars has nothing on these chicas.

Katy Perry's 25th birthday (October 25). We got her some cherry Chapstick.

Pumpkin carving! We're going to carve Ryan Reynolds' abs in ours.

The super-straight half-updo, as seen on Marion Cotillard. Superior bone structure sold separately.

Limited-edition Mike's Hard Pink Lemonade for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Admittedly tougher to pin to your shirt than a pink ribbon.

Repetto's fringed ballet flat. The love child of Crazy Horse and Audrey Hepburn.

New York's Village Halloween Parade, the largest in the world (October 31). No, your pug does not enjoy being dressed up like a pig.
