American Idol history was made last night when Haley Reinhart (at left in Domino jeans, a Meghan top, House of Harlow boots and Sisco & Berluti bangles) became the first contestant ever to sing an unreleased song—Lady Gaga’s “You and I.” Lauren Alaina (at right in a Sheri Bodell chain dress, David Lerner leggings, and a Bebe belt) channeled her inner Carrie Underwood during a rendition of “Flat on the Floor,” before the cast changed gears to perform hits from the ’60s and ’70s. “Every week I am pushing their style more and more, but the era had nothing to do with it. I want them to be themselves week after week,” the show’s costume designer Soyon An told InStyle. “It’s all about choosing looks that fit and enhance their individual style.” Click through the gallery for more designer details from last night’s episode!

The Mother’s Day shopping window is closing soon, but luckily Gucci and Michael Kors have stepped in with some stylish handbags made just for moms. Gucci’s Mother’s Day purse (right) is available at Gucci.com through June 15th, and it will help mothers out there in need: 25 percent of the proceeds will be donated to UNICEF to support newborn HIV programs. The $970 fabric style features loads of pockets and leather trim, along with Gucci’s signature red and green webbing. Kors’s $328 Joan satchel (left) was named for the designer’s mom, Joan Kors. “My mother travels constantly and loves the idea of a bag that’s both utilitarian and luxurious, so I created the Joan Bag for her,” Kors said in a statement. The style comes in leather, crocodile-embossed nappa, and patent leather finishes, and is available at select Michael Kors stores and MichaelKors.com. Order now and you might have just enough time for that overnight Fedex!

In Emily Griffin’s Something Borrowed only one designer would satisfy demanding bride-to-be Darcy: Amsale. True to the book, our May cover girl Kate Hudson and crew headed to the famed New York boutique to film the big screen adaptation—and that meant a little construction. “We’re on the mezzanine level, so they created an entire Park Avenue storefront,” explained Amsale Aberra. Once the stunning façade was completed, the rest was left to the Ethiopian designer and the film’s star. “I selected a few dresses and she walked around and chose her favorite,” said Aberra. “It was literally like a bride shopping for her wedding.” Hudson’s pick: a dramatic beaded drop-waist gown aptly named “Celebrity.” The tulle and organza Kenneth Pool design is available for $12,900 at the Manhattan Amsale Flagship Salon, and information on other stores carrying the style can be found at Amsale.com. “I can’t wait to see it in the movie,” said Aberra. Neither can we!

Now that it’s been almost a year since Eclipse hit theaters, the countdown to the penultimate Twilight Saga film can really begin. Summit just released new stills from Twilight: Breaking Dawn, giving fans a glimpse into the adaptation of what has been called Stephenie Meyer’s most controversial book. The film hits theaters on November 18th, and while details are still under wraps, we do know that the The Edward-Bella-Jacob love triangle will be pushed aside for the wedding and much-anticipated honeymoon to take the spotlight. While we’re hoping this doesn’t mean less of Taylor Lautner‘s abs, we’re dying to see Bella’s wedding dress, the reception’s decor and of course the gorgeous getaway for the newlywed couple.
