A Day in the Life: Anna Sui for Target Shopping Event



Hey Glamazons!

Ready, set, fashion! The tents are swarming with fashionistas from all over the world gathering to see the best and brightest designers the city has to offer. The Glamazons, of course, are on hand to capture all the excitement, starting with yesterday night. After shopping at TopShop all day to prepare for Fashion Week, I spent my evening downtown at the Anna Sui for Target editor shopping preview (the collection hits stores September 14th). 
Who gets to meet Anna Sui twice in one summer and to see and shop the Gossip Girls-inspired collection before the public? Thank you, Fashion Gods! As soon as we hit the white tent downtown, where the event was held, the first order of business was hitting the racks. I scored an amazing grey wool dress with spiked details on the neckline (inspired by Gossip Girl’s Serena) and a pair of ripped tough luxe pair of tights (inspired by Gossip Girl’s Jenny). See both pieces below – lovelovelove them!
Speaking of Jenny, Taylor Momsen was there in her bleached blonde glory shopping the collection. 
Among the guests sipping champagne and chatting on the red carpet, we spotted June Ambrose and Jessica White. The latter proudly showed off her long blonde weave but I prefer the bob she sported on the Terrell Owens show. What do you think?
June Ambrose tweeted this pic of her on the red carpet last night. She looks fab as usual!

Jessica White’s blonde look. 
Not my favorite. Bobs are definitely the way to go (check out Beautylicious and my bobbed styles below).

Love that the red carpet was decorated with newspaper headlines gossiping about the collection. It was such a nice touch!
Uber-glam! We headed to bed early to rest up for a BCBG, Charlotte Ronson and L.A.M.B. on Thursday…oh and Fashion’s Night Out! Stay tuned for all the juicy details from the frontrow to backstage.
Kisses,

First Look!! Anna Sui for Target


Hey Glamazons,

I had the pleasure of attending the Anna Sui for Target preview. In addition to meeting the designer herself (I’m a HUGE fan), I got to see the collection, inspired by the cult hit show, CW’s Gossip Girls.


The vibrant-colored frocks, metallic jacquard dresses, herringbone sheaths and leather jackets are sure to be wardrobe staples for Target shoppers across the country.

Most impressive about the collection is the fact that each character’s line speaks directly to their unique fashion sense on the show. Anna Sui welcomed the challenge of capturing the character’s varying fashion styles: “I liked the idea of creating a collection reflective of each character’s style, sensibility and unique approach to fashion,” she told WWD. The collection inspired by Serena boasted muted colors imbued with ladylike charm while Jenny’s line was pure edgy chic complete with ripped tights and cut-out tanks. To say I was impressed is an understatement! Take a look for yourself and let me know which Gossip Girl flaunts a fashion-forward style most like your own. And tell me what piece you’ll be buying when the line hits stores September 13. It will be available in 250 stores until October 17. Happy Shopping!!

Kisses,

Glamazon Exclusive! Anna Sui for Target


Target just announced Anna Sui as the second designer to create an affordable collection for their Designer Collaborations series. The first was Alexander McQueen who designed the widely popular MCQ for Target collection, inspired by Leila Moss of the British rock band, Duke Spirit. I went to the MCQ for Target launch/shopping event and scored a leather vest, asymmetrical frock and chic military-inspired jumpsuit (and met Ryan Leslie, a huge fan of the designer and in my opinion, one of the most promising R&B stars out there, but I digress :-).

So what does Gossip Girls have to do with it, you ask? Anna Sui’s collection is inspired by Gossip Girls’ four female main characters, who are a fashion phenomenon in their own right. What happens when you combine Anna Sui’s youthful, vibrant aesthetic with the preppy Upper East Side sophistication of Gossip Girls? We’ll have to wait until the collection hits stores, September 13th, to find out! But stay tuned; I promise to give you a “First Look” much sooner! In the meantime, enjoy pictures of Anna Sui’s amazing Spring collection and our favorite, fashionable private school snobs below.
