San Francisco dwellers might already be familiar with the Curiosity Shoppe, but come Sept. 9, Target will be adding the San Francisco-based store as its second flight of The Shops at Target. Curiosity Shoppe founders, Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom, will curate the 60-plus-piece collection, including entertaining accessories, stationery, kitchenware, games, crafts, and curiosities, ranging from $3 to $25.Before opening the Curiosity Shoppe in 2007, Lauren worked in Todd Oldham's design studio and Derek was a magazine editor at publications like Esquire and Interview. The couple ditched their East Coast gigs to try their hand at the retail business and landed in San Francisco's Mission District. Known for its eclectic mix of crafts, kits, books, unusual gift ideas, home decor, and quirky art, we're anxious to see how San Francisco's Curiosity Shoppe will fit into Target's innovative shops series.

The White House Correspondents' Dinner wasn't the only fashion-packed event this week. The Shops at Target launch in New York brought major style, with the likes of Hilary Rhoda, Emma Roberts, and Leelee Sobieski each hitting the red carpet in their casual-chic finest. Balmain celebrated the launch of its new social media initiative with an intimate dinner that brought designer Olivier Rousteing and a bevy of Balmain-clad supermodels: Constance Jablonski, Karlie Kloss, Arizona Muse, and Kasia Struss— just to name a few.
In London, the style set made a strong showing as well. Dita Von Teese and Daphne Guinness turned up to fete Christian Louboutin at a private viewing of the famed shoe designer's latest exhibit, and Poppy Delevigne, Emma Roberts, and Tali Lennox were all on hand to toast Derek Blasberg at Gucci's event in honor of Very Classy. The Women For Women International Gala brought a nice dose of glamour; Mischa Barton, Charlotte Dellal, and Olivia Grant were among those whose red carpet looks made a lasting impression.
