Anna Sui previewed her limited-edition, two-piece collaboration with Coach at New York Fashion Week last February, and the bags are now available at coach.com! “It’s truly an honor to put my own spin on this seminal design,” Sui said of the line that showcases her signature boho aesthetic. One bag features a fleur-de-lis detail and the other has a dragonfly stitched pattern, while large tassels accent the vegetable-tanned, hand-burnished leather and brass hardware. The collection hits stores tomorrow, and each Anna Sui for Coach design is numbered—so when they’re gone, they’re gone!
With Pippa Middleton’s party-planning book Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends set to hit shelves on October 30th, the sister of everyone’s favorite Duchess is gearing up for its big launch. Today, she made four different appearances—in four different outfits—one of which was for an afternoon children’s Halloween party in London, where she was able to put some of her great advice for the spooky holiday into action. Pippa writes that she “frequently celebrates Halloween over a supper with friends. It’s a wonderful excuse to let your imagination run riot with gory-looking food and special effects… there is no such thing as overdoing it.” Some of her top tips? In lieu of carving a pumpkin, leave it whole and poke sticks into it, then attach “cocktail sausages, tomatoes, and mini mozzarella balls” onto the ends, for guests to nibble on. (Or try the ghost lollipops, shown above!) She also recommends pumpkin bowling. Pippa, you’re so much fun! We wish she would plan our Halloween bash.

After the Internet began buzzing earlier this week that Mad Men might start shooting season 6 in Hawaii, the first images have surfaced of on-screen couple Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and wife Megan (Jessica Paré) romping on the beaches of Maui in swimwear! Hamm is super-’70s—and proves once again that he can’t look bad—in colorful starfish print trunks, while Paré brings the flower power in a bright, blossom-patterned bikini. When we caught up with their co-star Vincent Kartheiser (who plays Pete Campbell) at a Macallan event earlier this month, he told us that he wasn’t sure if he should show up on set sun-kissed or pasty: “I don’t know what year it is, I don’t even know what time of year it is,” Kartheiser said. “I called them and said, ‘Should I be tan? Should I be pale?’ And they were like, ‘We can’t tell you.’” Looks like he might have his answer now!

Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) isn’t the only one with designer duds on ABC’s hit D.C. drama, Scandal! Co-star Darby Stanchfield, who plays Abby on the show, steps up her style this week in a super-slim Vince leather jacket and blue silk blouse paired with a Diane von Furstenberg pencil skirt and envy-inducing Tom Ford handbag. Costume designer Lyn Paolo clued us in on Abby’s fashion evolution: “In this episode Abby is investigating for Olivia, so I liked the idea of her looking very private investigator on the job,” Paolo told InStyle.com. But as last week’s episoide hinted, Abby’s romantic entanglement with Pope & Associates foe David (Joshua Malina) will complicate things. Could love be in the air? If her wardrobe is any indication, we think so. “Because of [Abby’s] relationship with David, I am using a lot of softer silks and less pants than we have in the past,” Paolo said. Tune in to ABC tonight at 10 p.m. EST and judge for yourself.
