Five-time Grammy Award-winning artist Celine Dion may be in the midst of promoting her new album “Loved Me Back To Life” (which you can pick up on iTunes), but she’s also taking time out of her busy schedule to launch her first watch collection for QVC. Her new line, Celine Dion Quintessential Timepieces ($99-$249), is stylish and sophisticated — much like the superstar herself. The singer has always admired watches and what they symbolize, making the collection a natural fit. “Watches are a reminder that time is one of the most precious gifts we have,” Dion said. Launching on QVC today, the collection features elegant design elements and unique accents that embody bold and feminine styles, many of the over 20 designs complete with Swarovski crystals. From classic leather band watches to larger boyfriend styles in rose and yellow gold, there is a Dion timepiece to suit anyone’s style. We love the sleek look of the wear-with-anything watches. Pick up the limited-edition collection now on QVC.com.
“It’s getting bigger and bigger,” Kelly Ripa (in Intermix) reflected as she made her way down the “grass carpet” at Super Saturday 16, the ultimate designer garage sale that has become the must-see event of the Hamptons every summer. Ripa, along with Donna Karan and InStyle’s own Ariel Foxman played co-hosts at the event, which welcomed 900+ visitors to Nova’s Ark Project in Water Mill, New York for a day of shopping for a cause. Over 200 designers and labels set up booths, and 100% of proceeds are donated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, which raises awareness and funds in the fight to cure ovarian cancer. “I’ve had a home in the Hamptons for 20 years now and have ever been,” said Nicky Hilton (in Isabel Marant dress, DVF shoes, and Pucci purse) alongside mom Kathy. “It’s our first time and it’s such a great cause!” Ali Wentworth agreed: “I’ve lost many people to ovarian cancer, so it’s a cause I believe in. And it’s fun to bargain shop.” Plus, you didn’t have to be one of the VIP guests like Beth Stern, Susan Lucci, or Star Jones to enjoy all the fun—QVC broadcasted live from the event for two hours so shoppers at home could score deals on clothing, accessories and beauty products, too. By days end, the event raised an incredible $3.5 million for OCRF. In case you missed it, you can still place bids at charitybuzz.com now until July 30th.

While raiding the closet of Angelina Jolie is a dream for most of us, her celebrity stylist Jen Rade is offering every woman their own stylist experience with her EDGE line on QVC. Tonight, Rade will debut two new pieces for her line, both of which adhere to the idea that getting dressed in summer’s climbing temps shouldn’t be a challenge. ”The key to my whole aesthetic is being able to dress something up, or dress it down,” she told us. “It comes from being a stylist. I want to make sure that if I buy a piece for a client, it’s something they can wear year-round that is a good addition to their closet.” Rade recommends choosing items that are easy to wear, but have interesting details to replace extra accessories — elements that appear in her latest additions. The boho-chic tunic ($43; qvc.com) is perfect for those super-hot days where breathable fabric is key, while her studded tank ($40; qvc.com) is designed to flatter. “Each side has a row of studs at an angle, which is meant to draw your eye inward and give you shape,” she added. Tune in to QVC at 7 PM EST
tonight to catch Jen’s appearance.

We love shopping for a cause, and QVC is giving us a good reason to tonight with its FFANY Shoes on Sale special. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST, many of the shoes on qvc.com and on TV will be available for half the manufacturer’s price, with net proceeds benefiting breast cancer research and education, thanks to a special partnership the retailer has with the Fashion Footwear Charitable Foundation (FFANY). On Monday, Nicole Richie, Kristin Cavallari, and Katrina Bowden got a sneak peek at the shoe sale at the 19th Annual FFANY Shoes on Sale gala in New York City, where Richie’s House of Harlow shoes were snatched up quickly by guests. “I’m so excited people are supporting my dream and supporting my work,” she told InStyle.com. “To be a part of this great cause, I felt it was really important.” Tune in, and happy shoe shopping!

And last night, the Oscar-winning American Idol alum gave us a first peek at the looks! “I wanted to focus on being comfortable, but being cute at the same time,” she told InStyle.com. “I was [inspired by] Michael Kors, because I feel that he focuses on the ‘real woman,’ you know?
