We've counted about 11,259.5 reasons why we love Target (and we're still counting), and most of them have to do with the amazing designer collaborations and the aisles and aisles of glorious beauty products. Now the retail giant has announced the launch of a new, premium skincare concept (which we will no doubt love) featuring four exclusive brands--29 by Lydia Mondavi, Borghese (!!!), AmorePacific’s Korean line Laneige, and MD Complete--along with three more widely accessible beauty brands Vichy, La Roche Posay (two beauty labels owned by L’Oreal) and Own Skin Health. Prices for the products, which will be categorized as "Dermatological Skincare" and "Specialty Skincare," range from $8 up to $57. Look for the new upscale beauty labels on Target.com on February 17, and in stores starting in March.
It seems as though we've been waiting an eternity to get a glimpse of Sarah Jessica Parker's shoe line, but we're finally getting a peek at what the style icon has put together for her debut collection. The actress, who famously portrayed Manolo-loving Carrie Bradshaw on SATC, gave Glamour magazine a preview of the collection, including "The Carrie," the T-strap pump pictured, which Sarah Jessica describes as "a strong shoe that can be worn for day and night." The collection also includes the lace-up bootie pictured above ("The Allison," a shoe "for the girl who doesn't want to wear a traditional ladylike heel but wants a bit of height" according to Sarah Jessica), ballet flats, strappy sandals, and classic pumps. The SJP shoe line hits Nordstrom stores next month on February 28.
Diane von Furstenberg is celebrating forty years of her iconic wrap dress with an exhibition called "Journey of the Dress." Located in Los Angeles’ Wilshire May Company Building, the exhibition is a gallery of nearly 200 variations of what is widely considered the most flattering dress in the fashion world. The opening party pulled in the designer's top admirers and celebrities, among them, Rooney Mara, Rachel Zoe, and Girls actress Allison Williams. "I’ve had so many fortunate moments with Diane at events and seeing her at the CFDAs," said model Erin Wasson. "It’s less about the clothing for me and more about the woman and the spirit. It’s about who she is and the history and the stories she has. She’s an enigma." Cheers to the first forty years of the wrap dress; we can't wait to see what the next forty years bring!
