Candles are almost as good as cookies, right? The Macaron-masters at Ladureé are switching gears as part of the Sandy relief effort, releasing the "Capital of the World" candle collection, with proceeds going right to the Red Cross. Ça sent bon! (Ladureé)

Sure, it's mostly about the clothes, but spring fashion shows weren't without their diva moments. The Armani-Cavalli warring words and de la Renta's hamburger-slam on Cathy Horyn are definitely top-fivers; but come on, that Zac Posen pre-show slap was the slap felt 'round midtown. (WWD)

Got your Azaelia Banks EPs in order? Good, because you'll need them to practice up for the vogueing-themed "LOVE HangOVER Ball" happening next Wednesday night at the W Union Square. Thrown in support of amFAR, the Kelly Osbourne-hosted philanthropic fête promises appearances by fashion's folk heroes like Simon Doonan, Edward Enninful, and Pat McGrath. Try to keep it together –– save the freaking out for the flo'! (W Hotel)

Bloomingdale's always goes full throttle on their holiday windows, and this season proves to be no exception. Partnering with tech firm FaceCake, Bloomies put together a Cirque du Soleil-themed display that actually uses its onlookers –– there's a camera that takes your picture and puts it up for all of 59th and Lex to see! Just smile, say cheese, and watch your image take center-circus. (FaceCake)

Holy cuteness! The ASPCA put photos of the pets and pooches sent to their Sandy emergency shelter in BK on their Facebook page, and well, we're all puppy-eyed over them. If you see any lost souls wandering around your nabe, make sure to send them there! (The Cut)
