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.
Happy wedding day, Keira Knightley! The 28-year-old actress tied the knot with her Klaxons keyboardist beau James Righton in Provence, France today, People.com reports. She wore a short dress with a ruched bodice to the ceremony, which she topped with a Chanel jacket and finished off with a pair of flats. She also wore a floral headband around her long bob, which added an extra romantic element.

Carolina Herrera told editors at her spring 2014 bridal fashion show that this season’s collection would be ”whimsical play on lace,” and she delivered in a big way. The romantic fabric was everywhere, from peeking out from under draped backs to creating princess-worthy sleeves. The feminine designs fit every wedding style, whether you’re saying your “I Dos” as an airy beach bride or a metropolitan-focused city girl. And that’s just what the legendary designer intended: “As the ultimate expression of a bride’s personality, the Carolina Herrera wedding gown is a reflection of her most beautiful self,” the designer said.

Time has flown by! We can’t believe it’s already been two years since we saw Prince William and Catherine Middleton walk down the aisle at Westminster Abbey and say their “I Dos.” And their lives (and ours!) haven’t been the same since: The gown Kate wore by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen became a museum piece, her maid of honor Pippa Middleton shot into the spotlight thanks to her backside that very day, the Duchess became a style icon with her her every move tracked (and eventually selling out), and finally, the love keeps going now that the blissful couple now have a baby on the way. But it all started April 29, 2011. Click through the gallery to remember the glorious day.
Mad Men co-stars Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser revealed that they were dating last summer—around the time Bledel guest-starred as Kartheiser’s mistress on Mad Men—and have been together ever since. Last month, the pair announced their engagement, and Bledel finally debuted the sparkler she said “yes” to—an octagonal diamond set in a band with pavé stones decorating the sides—at the premiere of her made-for-TV movie Remember Sunday in Los Angeles last night. “I’m a very lucky man,” Kartheiser had shyly told reporters last October. And she’s a lucky lady, too! So, now that you see it close up, what do you think? Leave your unfiltered thoughts in the comments.

Elle Macpherson has yet to officially comment (though People has reported) on her pending marriage to billionaire hotelier Jeff Soffer, but this giant rock on her left-hand ring finger speaks louder than words ever could. The supermodel and lingerie designer stepped out this week in London wearing a large, emerald-cut diamond on her ring finger. She and Soffer had parted ways in March 2012, but joined forces again after Soffer walked away from a serious helicopter crash last November. So, now that you see it extra close-up, what do you think? Leave your unfiltered thoughts in the comments.

Danielle Fishel, our forever Topanga Lawrence, has been Tweeting from the set of Boy Meets World reboot Girl Meets World, and her most recent share is this adorable shot of her hand over co-star Ben Savage’s (a.k.a. Cory), with both actors proudly showing off their on-screen wedding rings. And we were so excited to see it, we asked InStyle‘s own jewelry expert Marion Fasel for her opinion (assuming Disney sprung for real bling rather than costume jewelry). If it’s real, “[Topanga's engagement ring] is a round-brilliant cut diamond in a prong setting on a knife-edge gold ring with similarly-styled gold wedding band,” said Fasel, author of With This Ring. “I would say the diamond was well over three carats. It is a real sweetheart set.” And she says Savage’s white metal band is equally classic. “It matches the mood of her ring to perfection.” A match made in TV heaven!
