From being named the next collaborator for Target to having countless celebrities wear his clothes, Prabal Gurung had great 2012! “There are so many [highlights] from this year, I really can’t pinpoint just one,” the designer told InStyle.com at the New York launch of Target and Neiman Marcus’s collaborative holiday collection, where he had designed a festive cape and clutch for the limited-edition capsule. “It was huge!” Of course, there are a few that stick out in his mind—thanks to some Very Important Ladies. “More than anything else, when the First Lady wore my clothes, I would say that created an impact bigger than I ever imagined. And also the Duchess of Cambridge.” (We can’t forget how excited he was when he first learned that Kate had worn his dress!) “It’s absolutely unreal, surreal, and out of this world when you see someone you never would even think about wearing your clothes,” Gurung added. “When there is a plethora of choices for them, and they decide to wear yours, it’s a whole different feeling.” We hope his happy feelings continue through 2013 and beyond!

A new episode of The Good Wife premiered last night, in which Julianna Margulies’s character Alicia Florrick had an internal battle about right and wrong, in and out of the courtroom. There was no wavering on her wardrobe however, with costume designer Daniel Lawson dressing the principal star in another series of enviable work suits. “This year has been a really good time for clothing on Alicia,” Lawson told InStyle.com, a repoirtoire that includes Escada and Akris, as shown here. “We’ve been able to find some magnificent pieces. And it’s not finding a magnificent piece, it’s about finding a magnificent piece that works with the story. We’ve been lucky that we’ve had a wonderful marriage with those two elements this season.” Click through the gallery to learn more details about the fashion last night!
Coral lipstick is a great hue for summer, and if you steer clear of a too-heavy finish like Lucy Hale, the shade gets a cool weather makeover. “I decided to do a subtle match with Lucy’s makeup to her gorgeous orange top,” said her makeup artist Nick Barose, who used Sephora’s Color Lip Last in Go For Pink. “Normally I hate matching makeup to clothes, but for the holidays it’s kind of perfect and more festive that way.” Instead of completely coating Hale’s lips in an opaque hue, Barose stuck to a light wash of color with a shiny finish. “I dabbed the product on directly from the tube, blotted it to keep it sheer, then added a similar-toned coral gloss.” Great tip! Pick up a tube for $12 at sephora.com.

It was great.” And her left ring sparkled thanks to the new square-cut yellow diamond he picked out for her. ”He did really, really well,” she said. “It was hard picking out jewelry for tonight because I felt like I really didn’t need more!” Congratulations!
