Happy 50th birthday, Target! The retailer celebrated its five-decade anniversary with a bash in New York last night, where celebrity fans like Naomi Watts (in a Target Merona blouse and Helmut Lang blazer), Revenge’s Christa B. Allen, Tony Bennett, Shaun White, and Josh Groban attended to toast with free-flowing Champagne to the milestone. “Who doesn’t love birthday parties!” Allen (in Donna Karan) told InStyle.com before taking in the celebrations, which included a surprise a cappella rendition of “Happy Birthday” by Grammy-winning artist Alicia Keys.

What are the InStyle editors lusting after? From shoes to bags to clothes to jewelry, see what Randy Miller, an editor in our fashion department and contributing fine jewelry editor Marion Fasel, picked as the best of the best for our “We’re Obsessed” list, including Stella McCartney‘s lace and crepe mini, Donna Karan‘s red elastic wedges, and David Webb’s stunning emerald, ruby and diamond bracelet. Click through the gallery to see all of the editor’s favorites this week—if money was no object, of course.
If DKNY was all about the hustle of New York, Donna Karan‘s collection was all about the calm. Inspired by “coming into the city, light reflected on buildings,” metropolitan influences like the skyline, water and glass played a role in the sculpted, draped and shredded designs. The colors were dyed for a muted effect that mimicked dawn and dusk—ranging from watery blues and sea greens to gold, sienna and sunset pink. The accessories too caught the urban tone with sculpted lucite headpieces and cuffs reflecting against the architectural garb. See our favorite looks in the gallery!
