Valentine’s Day is great and all, but you know what we REALLY love? Cute clothes. Bonus points if they’re actually affordable, and even better if they’re from one of our favorite designers, Prabal Gurung. All three of these incredible things collided last night at the celebration of the New York CFDA winner’s newest collab with Target, a huge dream date-inspired affair featuring food trucks, indoor rides, and a performance by Ne-Yo (which, PS, if you haven’t witnessed editors and It girls getting down to R&B love songs, then you don’t know what you’re missing!). Clearly the fashion industry’s love for the singer is mutual— Ne-Yo told us on the red carpet that he’d just returned from Paris Fashion Week. “I went to the Givenchy and Versace shows in Paris and loved both of them,” he said. “And I gotta admit, when I met Donatella Versace for the first time, I got a little crush on her!” Actresses Elizabeth Olsen, Carey Mulligan, Analeigh Tipton, and campaign star Olivia Thirlby also turned out on the red carpet decked out in Prabal for Target, Elizabeth pairing her dress with an oversized blazer, Carey with a leather coat, and Analeigh with her mom’s vintage army jacket. The America’s Next Top Model contestant-turned- Warm Bodies star told us she borrows her mom’s stuff all the time now that she realizes how cool it is. Aww!
Another rising style star to watch is The Hunger Games’ Isabelle Fuhrman, who had THE best nail game of the night. The teenager is a huge fashion fan, and showed off her manicure inspired by the Spring/Summer 13 runways. And as for whether or not she’ll swap out her nail designs after attending Prabal and Christian Siriano’s Fall/Winter shows this week, Isabelle said you can count on it: “It depends what I love on the runway… but knowing me, probably!”
The Prabal Gurung for Target collection hits stores and online February 10.
