First Look: 3.1 Phillip Lim For Target to Debut in September

There were simply not enough words to describe my excitement when I heard that Target’s next designer collaboration will be NYC-based, modern genius, Phillip Lim. Joining Target’s collab hall of famers including, Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, and most recently celebrity stylist Kate Young, Phillip will produce a men’s and women’s collection set to debut on September 15th.

“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said Lim. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire — one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.”

With more than 100 items priced from $19.99 to $299.99, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target will do just that — bring his super-cool, refined designs to the modern-day citizen who lives a multi-faceted life.

The collection features apparel and accessories in neutral fall tones and patterns, and includes shoes, bags, and even travel accessories that will be available at most Target stores and at target.com. What a great reward after NYFW!

H&M FINALLY Gives U.S. the Luxury To Shop Online

I am probably the biggest online shopping whore that you will ever meet. UPS and Fed-Ex can probably get to my house without a GPS now, sadly. So if you are like me, AND you live in the U.S. you know that H&M never gave U.S. shoppers the opportunity to shop through the web. Talk about first world pains. But no need to worry anymore, because H&M lovers, such as myself, can now be lazy and shop in sweats with an online H&M shopping bag.

Here is a little preview of what you will see once you enter the website and begin your online shopping spree.

Happy shopping!

DJ Khaled Proposes To Nicki Minaj!

There are no rumors of Nicki Minaj dating anyone at the moment, but DJ Khaled is ready to take her hand in marriage! The extremely bold DJ Khaled literally went to MTV and aired a proposal to Nicki, presenting her with a $500,000 ring! He verbally announced, “Nicki Minaj, I’m at MTV. I love you. I like you. I want you. I want you to be mine. I’m here at MTV because it’s a worldwide network. Only reason I’m not telling you this face to face is because I understand that you’re busy. Ima be honest with you, I wanna marry you.” 

 Nicki’s only response to it was a retweet of the video on her Twitter account. Sorry Khaled, it looks like her answer is a no, but props to your courage!

Royal Baby Name Revealed!

The (second) moment everyone has been waiting for has been the reveal of the royal baby’s name! (First being the gender.) So here we have it: George Alexander Louis.

Although everyone waited two full days for the reveal of the name, that is said to be “quick” by royal standards. Princess Diana and Prince Charles took a week to reveal Prince William’s name, but Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh had everyone waiting for an entire month! A month is just torture, but luckily the Duke and the Duchess were generous to us this time around.

Is it just me, or does Kate just get prettier by the minute?! What beautiful parents these two are. Congrats to the happy parents.

Revealed: Kate Moss Debuts Cell Phone Accessories Line

It’s no secret that Kate Moss is a natural at modeling fabulous designs…but how about creating them?! Flashback to 2008 when her popular Topshop collection sold out in only an hour! The super model has been super busy lately landing jobs as the face of Versace and St Tropez, posing on the cover of Allure magazine, and now showing off her design savvy once again with a range of phone accessories for Carphone Warehouse.

The collection pulls inspiration from the style icons own wardrobe, hopeful to embody her classic understated style, featuring black leather for an edgy feel.

“I was inspired by all the things I love,” she told Vogue U.K. ”It was very much about the texture and the detail—a star, a stud, some leather.”

Some of Kate’s personal items appeared in the cases including a vintage lighter that fueled the creation of a mock crocodile finish for one case, and a diamond star-shaped necklace that sparked the idea to make a similar pattern for another. Plus, the anchor logo stamped on each of the tech accessories is a nod to the nautical tattoo that Moss sports on her wrist.

Moss’ designs will hit Carphone Warehouse stores in the U.K. on July 24 and will be available to us on the retailer’s website.

Armani Privé Fall 2013 Couture

“Pure elegance, what’s on the inside,” Giorgio Armani told style.com after his Fall 2013 Couture show. Elegant it was, with barely-there spaghetti straps, and a palette so nude that it was hard to tell where fabric ended and skin began on the pale-toned models. This collection veered away from the typical, gray, pantsuit tailoring that the design house usually goes for showing that Giorgio had nothing to hide…literally. Having been present for the very beginning of the Hollywood red-carpet scene, offering sleek, and minimal, Oscar-night dressing for actresses, Mr. Armani stuck to his roots and produced some of the most gorgeous gowns that will most definitely be seen on our favorite fashionistas this year. The shimmery tulle, with touches of black lace was the epitome of 30′s hollywood glam. Here are some of our favorite looks!
