FIRST LOOK! Liberty of London for Target



After a stellar collaboration with MAC, Liberty of London is spreading their flower power to another retail giant: Target. The line, which hits stores this Sunday, March 14th, is full of easy, printed minis and maxis, with patterns ranging from paisley to…you guessed it…floral. 


Even the home items (a bike!) and menswear (love those ties and boxers!) have fun, cheeky prints that will add some life to your Spring wardrobe. 


The sweeping floral maxidresses and breezy jumpsuits just scream Summer getaway. Throw on some flats, grab a pair of shades and you’re good to go.


The trench and sheath give you a chic way to work florals for day. And, like a good London brand, the line offers a stylish pair of rain boots and umbrella for those rare summer storms.


Check out all the looks below and tell me what you’re scooping up when it hits stores Sunday.

FIRST LOOK! Jean Paul Gaultier for Target


Hey Glamazons!

Remember in October when we announced the coming of Jean Paul Gaultier’s line for Target? Well, the lookbook has hit the web and though I’m still partial to Zac Posen’s line, there’s something about these edgy designs that blows my mind. In true Jean Paul Gaultier fashion, the affordable pieces blend high fashion and street culture seamlessly.
Even the more classic looks, like that amazing trench coat, have a chic, urban edge that make them utterly cool. And when it’s time to strut down the catwalk, like Jourdan Dunn in the amazing Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 look, turn to show-stopping pieces like a pair of tattooed tights and tanks with eye-popping graphics (Yes, literally. An eye graces the front of the shirt).
The tattoo prints aren’t my favorite and can easily go ugg when worn the wrong way (Ex: Ed Hardy) but I’m in love with the fit of that red and white printed belted sheath with a nautical neckline. The look is so trendy but the silhouette is timeless. Perfect match. AND the tough-luxe combo of the floral dress and white studded belt is just calling my name!
Check out images from the Lookbook and tell me what you’ve got your eye on when the pieces, which retail from $18-$200, hit stores on March 7th.

FIRST LOOK! Zac Posen for Target


Hey Glamazons,
When I announced Zac Posen’s collaboration with Target in November, I knew the collection would be remarkable—but with a beautiful printed gown, a bevy of cocktail dresses, a suit and even some shimmery swimwear, Zac went beyond my highest expectations. Seriously. It’s so beautiful I would sacrifice my light bill to buy everything in the collection. And they’re practically giving the clothes away for prices like $45; it’s unbelievable.
Okay, I know I’m biased when it comes to Zac (I will go on forever about his beautiful Fall 2009 show that my boss gave me her ticket to), but the attention to detail is exquisite in this collection! The uberchic designs, the immaculate lines, the ladylike silhouettes (it will fit your body perfectly), the charming prints, the sexy lipstick red color?? This collection is a must-get. Glamazon stamp of Approval all the way!

Behold the beautiful pieces below and tell us what you have to have when it’s in stores from April 20th to May 30th.

Video Glam: Teen Blogger Tavi Teams Up with Rodarte for Target


Hey Glamazons!!

So I attended the Rodarte for Target preview months ago and I was as thrilled to see the amazing collection as I was to meet Tavi Gevinson, the 13-year old blogger of Style Rookie, who has truly blown the industry away with her intelligence and fashion sense!

Check out her fab video project of the editor preview event (that I attended), the lookbook shoot and the ad campaign shoot below. She also interviewed designers, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, and chatted with celebs like Elijah Woods at the Rodarte runway show.

Fab!!! Here are some images of the MAJOR collection including a sequin dress that is everything!








Sequins, lace and leopard, oh my! Rodarte for Target is perfect for the young, fashion-forward dresser who is a romantic at heart.

The collection ranges from vintage-inspired looks with feminine flourishes, like the charming tulle skirts and swingy dresses lined with lace, to party-ready standouts like the leopard print minis and sequined frocks.

Remember Rodarte for Target is all about layering so have fun piling a knit over a lace cardigan over a leopard-print dress. Take off the knits and cardigans and you have a look that is still fabulous once the temperature rises.

Just in time for Christmas, the Rodarte for Target line hits stores on December 20th and is priced at $10-$80!

What will you add to your wardrobe when the collection hits stores??

Happy Shopping, Glamazons!

Kisses,

NEW!! Cynthia Vincent and Eugenia Kim for Target


Hey Glamazons!

To the delight of frugal shoppers everywhere, Target just announced two designer collaborations, Cynthia Vincent and Eugenia Kim, that will revitalize your accessories’ collection this April. After a number of collaborations including Jean Paul Gaultier and Anna Sui, it’s only right that Target expand to designer shoes and hats, a first for the retailer.

This is doubly exciting as milliner, Eugenia Kim’s hats (as seen on Nicole Richie below) and Cynthia Vincent’s shoes (she’s famous for amazing flats) are delightful but always on the expensive side. I’m eager to see what great patterns and styles they’ll offer up at Target, just in time for Spring. And you know a woman can never have too many accessories.

Recessionistas can shop both collections when they debut in stores and on the web on April 18th. Vincent’s collection will be available until July 1 while Eugenia’s line will be sold until June 20th.

Glamazons, will you shop the Eugenia Kim and Cynthia Vincent for Target collections when it hits stores?

NEW!! Jean Paul Gaultier for Target

Hey Glamazons!

As Ferocia’s told you a million times before, we do a lot of squealing in the Fashion & Beauty department. Today’s squeal of enthusiasm and unparalleled excitement is brought to you by the latest retail giant/designer collaboration: Jean Paul Gaultier!!! This, glamazons, is a HUGE deal.
Jean Paul Gaultier needs no introduction but here’s some brief background info: The French designer’s innovative, dramatic designs catapulted him from designing for his mother and grandmother to fashion royalty. Some of his most famous creations include corsets for men in 1997 and the lingerie-over-your-clothes trend which Madonna brought to the mainstream in her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour.
Gaultier often credits the street fashions of the youth in London and New York as the inspiration behind his edgy designs. His muse for the Target collection? “Jean Paul Gaultier for Target pays tribute to the American woman, celebrating the forces of style both past and present in American pop culture,” the retailer said.
I’m dying. If Madonna or even Rihanna are the “forces of style” behind these designs, Gaultier will surely deliver a collection that is everything. Here are the deets:
Jean Paul Gaultier for Target will hit 250 Target stores and Target.com on March 7. It will be available through April 11.
Check out some faves from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2010 collection below and let me know if you’ll be shopping his collection for Target.
Kisses,

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,
