By now, every fashion fan has dipped her wallet into at least one high/low designer collaboration. Take your pick — Target Go International, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Mango, and so on. The latest one, between Liberty of London and Target, will produce a limited-edition collection of fashion and home goods for March 2010. With the amount of high and low partnerships out there, it begs the question: Is the market saturated? Are you over it? On one hand, it's great that the budget conscious can afford designer, but adversely, it's hard to keep up! What do you think?

For the first part of the Top Chef season six finale, Padma Lakshmi looked perfectly seasonal while greeting the contestants alongside Michael Chiarello in beautiful Napa Valley. She paired a white cable knit sweater dress — which worked well with her adorable baby bump — with tan fur-lined boots, and completed the outfit with classic gold jewelry. Shop similar pieces now!

Big decision, after all, they're the ones who inspire us to think creatively, look our best, and try out new trends.

French designer Isabel Marant, swept our hearts with her rocker romantic aesthetic and flirty frocks. Fashion darling, Jason Wu, made a major presence this year with his chic, political-worthy frocks. Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, continued to stun us with their outstanding red-carpet gowns. Balmain's Christophe Decarnin brought badass back — Balmania!!! — with his endless supply of bedazzled body-con dresses and acid wash jeans. And Stella, who can deny the designer's stellar eye for tailored everyday pieces and animal-friendly stance?

Taylor Momsen took a break from filming scenes of Gossip Girl in New York City, where she looked like a sexy school girl with just the right amount of edge. She layered a Loeffler Randal knit combo coat over a white tank, which she wore with a flirtatious pleated miniskirt and zip-up blue suede booties that provided a much-needed hint of color. A pair of cable knit fingerless gloves and a cross-body tote finished the look off perfectly. Shop this look now!
