Lauren Bush Lauren’s FEED collaboration with Target is officially in stores! The extensive line, which boasts clothing and kitchen essentials among many other items, combines a classic feel with a charitable touch. Each item is stamped with a number, which indicates the amount of meals FEED USA is able to donate once the piece is purchased. “Our goal is to donate ten million meals,” Lauren told us at the launch party. “Hopefully, it empowers consumers to know that they’re making a meaningful impact.” In addition to the great cause the products support, the red, white, and blue color palette is perfect for any Fourth of July festivities you’ll be attending. “The overall theme and design inspiration was modern Americana, so we wanted to reflect materials that felt very American,” she added. Click through our gallery to see some of the offerings, and shop the full lineup at Target stores and target.com today.
Lea Michele helped celebrate the FEED USA and Target collaboration launch last night in New York City (the retailer’s first socially conscious design collab goes on sale this Sunday), where she played off of the Americana-esque setting by balancing her otherwise polished ensemble with a breezy tousled braid. “I wanted to do something different tonight, and I love the messy braid!” she told us. “It’s so perfect for summer.” The roughed-up plait balanced the drama of her bold liner — and it works so well in peak humidity. (The more flyaways, the better!)
GET THE LOOK:
“In order to get a cool messy braid that will last, prep your hair with the Beachwaver Curling Iron,” said Michele’s hairstylist Sarah Potempa, who created the look, as well as the handy self-rotating curling iron ($200; sarahpotempa.com) used on the star. “To maintain the soft wave, spritz hair all over with a texturizing spray. The finished style is the perfect easy, trendy braid for summer.” We’re obsessed with the L’Oreal Paris Texture Series Beach Spray ($7; lorealparisusa.com), which forms the ultimate surfer girl waves.

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.
