When it comes to designer/retailer collaborations, Target and H&M seem to have the market cornered, with big launch parties and even bigger print and television ad campaigns (who didn't swoon over those Lilly Pulitzer x Target commercials?). But if fabulous designer duds at affordable prices is what you want, don't discount Kohl's. After collaborations with Peter Som, Derek Lam, and Michelle Smith of Milly, the retailer has announced that a collection by Thakoon Panichgul is forthcoming. The limited-edition capsule collection is part of the store's DesigNation series, and will feature a range of womenswear priced at less than $200.
From her indie style (she's always one of the most photographed celebrities at Coachella) to her glamorous red carpet looks, Kate Bosworth is easily on of the most fashion-forward stars around. Now, the Still Alice actress is giving us a chance to match her style with a shoe collection that is inspired by her wardrobe. Bosworth worked with footwear label Matisse to launch the collection, which includes boots, sandals, and mules, and she said she created shoes that she would actually want to wear with the clothes hanging in her own closet. Need proof? Bosworth did indeed wear the Charlotte boot, a star-embellished, chunky-heeled number at Coachella a couple of weeks ago. We are super excited about this collection and can't wait to rock a pair of these Bosworth-designed shoes.
It's not uncommon for a a big party to call for several hosts, but the Met Gala is more than just a big party--it's the industry's premier red carpet event, just ask any one of the more than one hundred hosts. Often called the Oscars of fashion, this year's Met Gala is being hosted by a veritable who's who of fashion and entertainment, including names you may expect to see, such as Andre Leon Talley and Sarah Jessica Parker, and surprises like Seth Meyers and Bradley Cooper. There are also a ton of fashion designer co-hosts, natch, including Tory Burch, Tom Ford, Valentino Garavani, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Diane von Furstenberg, and Alexander Wang, to name a few. And even though the Chanel cruise 2015 show is the same evening and neither of them are expected to attend, both Karl Lagerfeld and Cara Delevingne are listed on the invitation (he because, obviously, he's the creative director for the French fashion house, and she because she typically closes his runway shows). The Met Gala is the largest fundraiser for the Costume Institute, and precludes the opening of the new Costume Institute exhibit, "China: Through the Looking Glass." Look for websites such as Vogue.com and Style.com to stream the event live on May 4.
