There is no stopping Target! The one-stop shop for everything from beauty products to blenders is now serving one more market: Bridal. The company just launched an online-only bridal collection named TEVOLIO, a name inspired by the Italian phrase for I Love You, Ti voglio. It includes 10 bridesmaids styles, four bridal styles, and two flower girl dresses, with sizes ranging from 2 to 28. There are also customizable elements: “We make sure that each of our dresses has something special,” said Jennifer Lansing of the product development team on a post for Target’s blog, A Bull’s-Eye View. “Some dresses have a removable flower pin. Many of our dresses have pockets—even bridal gowns.” Click through the gallery to check it out. The lineup is available at Target.com for $70 to $130.
Target has brought us some amazing designer collaborations—from Missoni to Prabal Gurung—and now, the retailer just announced the next one on deck: 3.1 Phillip Lim! The New York designer, who is loved by Kate Hudson, Diane Kruger, and Rachel Bilson, created a collection for Target that includes over 100 pieces, from clothing for men and women ($20 to $300) to accessories like shoes, bags, and travel goodies ($20 to $60). “Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” Lim said in a statement. “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.” Target also released a 51-second video detailing Lim’s girl-on-the-go inspiration (which is SO YOU), so watch it above and save the date for September 15, when the collection lands in stores and on target.com.

How to Wear the Kate Young for Target: Inspired by Michelle Williams, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Kate MaraApr 14, 2013 @ 7:30 am
Sunday shoppers, rejoice: Celebrity stylist Kate Young‘s collaborative collection for mega-retailer Target hits stores and target.com today! Fans of the eclectic line already include stars like Michelle Williams, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Kate Mara, who all wore her designs to the collection’s prom-inspired New York launch party this week. “I’ve seen a lot of the pieces from the collection and they’re all really, really different,” Mara told InStyle.com at the launch. “I was choosing between this dress and another dress that doesn’t even look like it was by the same designer, but both equally beautiful. I really appreciate that.” The creator herself shared her secret favorite piece from the collection with InStyle: “I’ve had a long relationship with these clothes at this point, and I think probably my favorite is the bodysuit because it’s so versatile,” Young said of the polka dot suit. “I like to wear the bodysuit under a blazer [like Michelle did]. I also like to wear it under a dress like I am now.” So fun! Click here to see a full preview of the line, and head to target.com to shop the collection now.

Inside the Party: Kate Young for Target’s Prom-Themed Bash With Michelle Williams, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Kate MaraApr 10, 2013 @ 1:30 pm
We went to prom with Kate Young last night! We were just one of the celebrity stylist’s many dates—along with her guests-slash-clients Kate Mara, Michelle Williams, and Maggie Gyllenhaal—for an evening that included disco balls, pink champagne, and streamer-covered bleachers at the elementary school-turned-event venue The Old School in New York to celebrate the new Kate Young for Target collaboration. “The collection was inspired mainly by the magic of getting dressed up and the feeling of hope that comes with putting on a fancy dress and going out for an evening,” Young told InStyle.com of the line, which is full of pieces for every spring party, from weddings to prom. Gyllenhaal, along with the rest of the star guests, served as celebrity models showing off the designs while grooving to tunes spun by DJ Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, daughter of Duran Duran’s John Taylor. “[Young’s] own personal style is really down to earth, smart, and sexy,” said Gyllenhaal. “It really comes through in the clothes.” Shop the festive collection at Target stores and online at target.com on April 14.

The stage production of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s opened on Broadway last night with Emilia Clarke in the role of Miss Holly Golightly. On stage, she worked a true-to-the-novella ’40s face palette (we saw it with our own eyes!), a look designed by makeup artist Sonia Kashuk, who also trained the star in how to do it for the nightly show. “It was more of a very clean, simple face, not so iconic to Audrey,” explained Kashuk. “In fact, we really wanted to stay away from that. So I think it pushed it in a new direction, but still very refined and very polished.” To create Holly’s signature beauty look, she used two pieces from her very own Target collection—the Super Sheer Shimmering Highlighter ($10, target.com) and the Couture Eye Palette ($20, target.com). “The highlighter gave a little lift and helped contour her face so it would be illuminated,” she added. Beautiful!

Target is collaborating with super-stylist Kate Young, and we have the exclusive first look at the entire lookbook! The stylist to the stars, who counts InStyle cover girls Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Natalie Portman as clients, is “thrilled” to be the retailer’s first stylist collaborator, and credits her years of experience in designer ateliers as the key to knowing just how to create a collection of ultra-chic looks for day and night. “I am used to thinking a step ahead, envisioning the final looks for my clients, so I approached this collection much in the same way—I even attended the first design meeting with sketches in hand!” And now, after all the red carpet events she’s helped her girls stun at, she’s giving you the chance to be the trendsetter. “Kate Young for Target allows women with all different style preferences to mix-and-match the pieces to create endless ensembles—to challenge them to step outside of the box and have fun experimenting with fashion.” So go for it! Click through to see every look from Young’s Target collection, and shop it all in Target stores and target.com starting Sunday, April 14.
Target’s Next Designer Collaboration Has a Charitable Touch, Thanks to Lauren Bush Lauren’s FEED USA PartnershipMar 11, 2013 @ 1:34 pm
Target is known for its amazing designer collaborations—Missoni, Prabal Gurung, Gwen Stefani, to name a few—and now, it’s adding a charity element to its next big partnership: FEED USA + Target. The retailer teamed up with Lauren Bush Lauren’s FEED organization to create 50 limited-edition pieces set to hit shelves this June, including home goods, stationery, apparel, and accessories with prices ranging from $3 to $400. Most importantly, the Target line will incorporate the main element that made the FEED charity so popular: Each sale will directly feed children. Sales from the Target line will benefit Feeding America, a national hunger-relief charity, and even better, each product will features a number on it showing exactly how many meals it provides. “Through product sales, we hope to provide 10 million meals to Americans in need, which would make it the largest U.S. initiative in FEED’s history,” Lauren said in a statement. “I am proud that we will be able to empower guests to make a measurable impact through the purchase of the FEED USA + Target collection.” Support the cause by Tweeting the hashtag #FEEDUSA and by shopping the collection, in stores and on target.com starting June 30th.
