Nate Berkus is having quite a month—not only did he just release a new book, he’s also launching his collection for Target this weekend! First up, the book, a beautifully-crafted design tome that’s also part memoir, The Things That Matter ($21 at target.com). In it, he shares intimate stories from his life, introduces us to people who have influenced him, and gives us a peak inside his dreamy walk-in closet. “I never set out to tell my own story but as I worked on the book and went into people’s homes and learned about what mattered to them, and why…it only felt right to do the same,” Berkus tells InStyle.com. The book takes readers through photos of his childhood and family through to his present-day home which (spoiler alert!) is totally divine. That’s why we’re thrilled that he took his design expertise straight to Target, with his exclusive collection—think hammered copper, grommet-studded trays, and rich, vibrant color—landing in stores this Sunday. “The great thing about designing products is that I get to pull from all the things I love and find a place for them in the collection,” Berkus told us. “The end result is a line that feels layered and assembled over time, which is ultimately what our homes should feel like.” We agree! Shop the collection starting Sunday at Target and target.com, and click through the gallery for a first look at our favorite pieces from the line.
New movie The Sessions is something completely different for actress Helen Hunt for one blaringly obvious reason. “I’m naked five minutes into the movie—that makes it different!” Hunt told InStyle.com at the Toronto International Film Festival recently. The Ben Lewin-directed film, in theaters today, tells the story of Mark, a paralyzed man in an iron lung (played by Oscar nominee John Hawkes) who wants to lose his virginity, while Hunt plays Cheryl, the “sex surrogate” hired to give him his wish. “I told myself to just throw my heart and soul and body into playing this woman who’s actually the embodiment of a positive look at sex, a positive feeling about sex,” Hunt told InStyle.com. “I like the idea of getting to be that.” William H. Macy plays Mark’s priest Father Brendan, who helps him cope with the moral ramifications of paying for Hunt’s services. “We were just weeping like babies when we saw the film because it’s so moving,” Macy told InStyle.com. (Many are saying it’s got award-season potential!) Up for a good cry this weekend? Find out where the film is playing near you.

It’s official! Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have tied the knot.“It’s great to be married. The ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends,” the couple exclusively told People. The lovebirds said “I do” in Southern Italy today and have kept details about the ceremony very hush-hush, even concealing the wedding location from guests until the very last minute. This union has been pending since the pair got engaged last December, and Biel told InStyle her perspective on love in our August issue, which she also covered. “You can find romance in front of a fireplace in the mountains, or at the beach. Romance is everywhere.” Must have been one really romantic affair, as pre-wedding festivities included a beach bash as well as lounging fireside at a grotto. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Earlier this week, Victoria’s Secret announced that Alessandra Ambrosio earned the honor of modeling this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra at the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. And now we know how she feels about the big news: “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now,” the mother-of-two told us of being selected at yesterday’s Christmas Dreams and Fantasies catalog launch in New York City. As she should! The Floral Fantasy bra is covered in 5,200 gems—amethysts, rubies, sapphires, as well as white, pink, and yellow diamonds included—and is worth an impressive $2.5 million. “It’s the most beautiful bra I ever saw in my life,” she said. “I’m not nervous about wearing it, but when the time comes I’m sure it will be a lot of pressure because anything could happen.” But she’ll have lots of practice before the big day—the Brazilian beauty already tested it for the photo shoot shown here. “There’s a very sexy push-up bra underneath so it feels good when I wear it,” she said. And is it easier than wearing her Angel wings? “Oh yeah! This is way more pleasant to walk in.” Watch Ambrosio strut her stuff when Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs December 4th at 10 p.m. EST on CBS.
