• Size matters, but it's not the size you think. It turns out women care about their dress size, but we're not all clamoring to be a tiny size zero. According to research commissioned by So Fabulous for Littlewoods.com, which is a plus-size clothing company (so yes, definitely consider the source), it's women who are a British size 16 -- an American size 12 -- are happiest with their appearance. A survey of 2,000 women found that a full 74 percent of size 12s claimed to be content with their size -- compared with just 42 percent of size 6 (that's an American size 2) women. Women surveyed said they most envied the bodies of Nigella Lawson, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Christina Hendricks and Adele. Yup, we wouldn't mind looking like Beyonce, either. [Daily Mail]

• Naomi Campbell's whole life is playing dress up, so we imagine she totally loves Halloween. This W spread featuring Naomi as FLOTUS Michelle Obama seems to support our theory. And meanwhile, in other crazy Halloween-y style looks, Rihanna was done up like Medusa for the cover of the latest issue of British GQ, and is topless and covered in snakes We'll take a pass on that, because reptiles creep us out and make us wilt on the inside.

• Jon Hamm is way more hirsute than we give him credit for: He apparently must shave three times a day to get the clean-shaven smooth Don Draper look that makes all the women go wild, according to Mad Men's makeup artist Lana Horochowski. Think of all the aftershave the man must go through! [Telegraph]

• Fans of the signature '70s scent Aqua Manda can rejoice! Thanks to their heavy campaigning over Facebook, the fragrance is being relaunched in time for Christmas. Aqua Manda , which contains notes of mandarin, lavender, ginger, patchouli and cinnamon, was discontinued in 1975, but fans of the scent still reminisce about it fondly. A Facebook group called Bring Gack Goya Aqua Manda was launch earlier this year, with fans trading limited supplies via message boards and eBay. But luckily, a company called Beauty Brand Development, Ltd, purchased up the Aqua Manda recipe, and have set about recreating the signature scent. If all goes well, it'll be back online and available for purchase in early November.

• Lady Gaga is a ghost! A wacky ghost! Without shoes on! (Ugh, seriously, she went out and about in Berlin sans shoes, but with white paint on her legs and arms. That can't be hygienic). [The Cut]

• You must watch Kate Moss writhe around in Paul McCartney's new video for his song "Queenie Eye." The song is great! And there's cameos from practically everyone, including Tracy Ullmann, Lily Cole, Jude Law, Alice Eve, and Meryl Streep, dancing adorably off-beat. Did we mention ... Johnny Depp? Oh, the golden age of celeb relationships! JDepps and KMoss, 4ever and ever. [Fashionista]
