Mulling over what to wear for Halloween? Consider the costumes of these New York upper crust types. "Socialite and interior designer Celerie Kemble is dressing as an FLDS wife. She described her outfit thusly: “Leg of mutton sleeves, pale blue long starched cotton dress, white socks, running sneakers, and round Harry Potter glasses. And I’ve been trying to figure out how to do the hair all week,” she said. Ms. Kemble’s husband, money manager Boykin Curry, will go for something more basic and dress up as Dracula, which he does every year." [Transom]
