Target Wasn’t Kidding When It Said EVERYTHING Is Going Plaid This Fall

27_listerineTarget is getting decked out in all plaid everything this fall. Not only are they releasing a buffalo plaid-inspired collection with designer Adam Lippes, but the retailer is plastering so many other items with the classic print this season. From cosmetic cases to sleeping bags, Target’s selection is a plaid enthusiast’s dream. Indeed, the plaid print turns up in some of the most unexpected locations: on pita chip bags, Chapstick containers – even bottles of mouthwash. 

Below, check out some of the most random plaid-plastered items, as well as Target’s beauty selection for this season. (more…)

Lisa Hyde’s The Bachelor S3, Ep 6 Low-Down: ‘She Stood Up for What She Believes In’

There you have it, another great night on The Bachelor. I just love all the twists and surprises. Season 3 is surely delivering great TV, especially when they kick off an episode with Sam flexing and showing us his muscles. Is it just me or is Sam getting better looking every episode?

Tonight we witnessed what the contestants would probably call “Triple Date Of Hell”, but what Sam likes to call “The Groundhog Date”.

I personally didn’t think it was that bad, but, then again, I can’t judge because I know how much emotions are heightened and every little thing that happens in the mansion seems 10 times worse than what it actually is. (more…)

Watch Beyoncé’s Behind-the-Scenes Video for Vogue’s September Issue Cover Shoot

Beyoncé fans are already having an amazing day since they woke up to the news this morning that their beloved queen is covering Vogue‘s September issue. The pop superstar, shot by Mario Testino, gives us another ultra glam wet hair moment. Tonne Goodman lent her styling talents to the shoot, dressing Ms. Knowles in a Marc Jacobs gown.

The September issue is always a very special one, but this time, Target is joining in on the fun with a 10-page insert honoring some of Vogue‘s most iconic shoots. TargetStyle, in Vogue is a 20-page overture in which the retailer recreates 15 images from the magazine’s archive, using products found at Target. Thanks to this partnership, Target will be the first to sell this latest Vogue issue, which will be available at the retailer’s stores tomorrow — before it hits newsstands.

Beyoncé is a big draw for a magazine any time of year and our forums seemed to be mostly pleased with the cover, though not too keen on the return of Bey’s wet hair look.

“Good to see Beyoncé but damn the wet hair is such a turn-off,” coutugh said. “Rumour has it she is dropping a new MV this fall so timing is sort of right.” Coutugh wasn’t the only one sniffing around for new Beyoncé material. “Killed it. Not a surprising choice, but the result is gorgeous and will sell well obviously. So does this mean we’re getting new music and/or a new album soon-ish?” orchidee wondered.

If Rumours Are True, Beyoncé Is Making History with Vogue’s September Issue

The internet is freaking out right now because Beyoncé is maybe, probably on the cover on Vogue‘s majorly important September issue.

A Bey fan account on Twitter posted a photo of the alleged cover today, ahead of its official release on Friday. But, is this a good photoshop job, or is it a history-making moment for the fashion and music industry alike?

While Vogue is yet to comment on the matter, if this shot is in fact legit, then Bey will be the first-ever African American musician to cover Vogue‘s September Issue. She will also be the third African American woman to appear solo on the cover of the issue, following Naomi Campbell in 1999 and Halle Berry in 2010.

This isn’t Bey’s first time at the Vogue rodeo. She’s graced the cover of the mag twice before: for the March 2013 issue as photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, and the April 2009 issue as photographed by Mario Testino. But nabbing the coveted spot for Vogue‘s September issue is a major coup. 

This wouldn’t be the first time one of Vogue‘s September Issue’s have been leaked before its official release, with last year’s cover, featuring “Instagirls” Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, revealed by fashion blogger Bryanboy.

The difference here is, Bryanboy is a fashion insider, if you will, not some devotee who set up a fan page to show just how devoted he is.

Still, we’re all for Beyoncé gracing the highly coveted spot on the September issue, even if truth of the matter is still up in the air.
