Target has chosen Jonathan Saunders to design its next GO International collection. The highly touted British designer is known for his use of colorblocking and innovative color combinations in his designs. The limited-edition collection will be available early October. Remember he also did a collection for Topshop? And, we didn't fancy it that much. Guess we'll have to wait and see if this one is a bigger success!

I revel in it when a previous bargain of mine finally makes it to trend status. Not to brag, but I scored a pair of Christian Dior bronze gladiators over a year ago on major markdown — they were from the 2008 Cruise collection. It was right when gladiators were surfacing, though I've always liked the masculine/feminine sandal. Now gladiators are every which where and it was hard to miss Gwyneth's Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain bronze sandals at the Two Lovers premiere in Cannes. So we all have black ones, move on to the lover, the fighter, the bronze gladiator.
I've been on a mad hunt to find some cool khaki pieces that can offset my neon tops. I was thrilled when I stopped into my local Old Navy and found this Old Navy Khaki Linen Mini Skirt ($10, originally $25). If you're in the same predicament, I highly recommend this piece. It looks especially hot with bright yellow and heather grey.
If khakis aren't on your brain, check out Old Navy's sale section and find yourself something Fab.
Kate Moss is one of the shortest famous models at 5'6 1/2. Really only Devon Aoki is shorter at 5'5. Still, her uniquely gorgeous face and waif body put her on countless catwalks in the '90s. These days, we get no shortage of Kate in ad campaigns, but I've missed her dearly on the runway. Here, she struts her stuff on the runways of Anna Sui, Bella Freud, and Versace to Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir." Ferocious! Anything she lacks in height she makes up for with her flirty demeanor and sexy dancing. One of my favorite tidbits is when Kate looks down and quickly up at the camera in a shy but sensual way. Oh, and take note of how back in the '90s, photographers used to be runway-side. Much more glamorous, right?
Red Carpet Report
Gwyneth Paltrow continued her reign as the leading lady of style on the red carpet. After making an appearance at the Chopard trophy presentation in a Grecian-inspired Lanvin dress, Paltrow made a quick change into a navy Chanel gown with a peekaboo plunging neckline for the Cannes premiere of Two Lovers.
adhusia's outfit depends on her mood and today she feels like a pretty mademoiselle! Her striped dress and red accessories evoke a sophisticated look and the patent skinny belt is lovely. Can't you see Charlotte wearing this in Sex and the City?

Ooh, Georgina does not look happy. Looks like her karma finally caught up with her on the season finale of Gossip Girl. She's being sent away to girls gone bad boot camp, but I hope we see her rebellious, moody style again. Something tells me she'll be back . . .
Did you take our fabulous season finale Gossip Girl fashion quiz?!

Sarah Michelle Gellar wore this dramatic and classy Bottega Veneta strapless black gown at the Costume Institute Gala and she chose to accessorize with a crocodile clutch and artsy earrings. Christina Ricci wore the same dress at the Chopard Party in Cannes pairing her look with a clutch similar to Gellar's and opted to keep her earrings simple. She did, however, go heavy on the collarbone with a diamond crusted emerald necklace. Both ladies look sleek but who do you think wore it better?
