Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on New Jersey’s Seaside Heights, the second home of MTV’s Jersey Shore cast. But while Snooki Tweeted “our boardwalk and favorite spots were ruined,” the gang’s old house is still standing. [E! Online]

Red is definitely Taylor Swift’s color. The singer’s fourth studio album amassed the largest first-week sales since 2002, with 1.21 million albums sold, thanks in part to clever promotions that used red Keds sneakers and Papa John’s pizza to sweeten the deal. [LA Times]

Happy Halloween! If you’ve spaced on costume ideas, get by with a little help from your friends and these HBO Girls dress up tips that can be pulled off at the  last-minute (seriously, “Hanna’s” look calls for skipping makeup and not brushing your hair). [MTV]

Politics…spooky! President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney get festive in Captain Hook and Dracula costumes — at least in LA menswear store Sarar’s current window display that asks customers to vote for best dressed. [Hollywood Reporter]

‘Tis the season for the holiday ad campaign blitz! This year the Gap’s campaign dubbed, “Love Comes in Every Shade,” features feel-good segments with an all-star cast including Michael J. Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan, rapper Nas and his father, blues musician Olu Dara and Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston and his dog. [NY Post]

Gaga’s meet dress has met its (preservable) match: Twelve magazine’s second issue shows off a 532.6 pound frock made entirely out of ice, inspired by Tilda Swinton’s role as “The White Witch” in The Chronicles of Narnia. [The Huffington Post]
