(Mostly Budget) Fashion Link Round-Up

My relaxing, computer-free cruise to Bermuda was a blast, and now I'm catching up on all the fashion news I missed. Here's what's been going on, in case you missed it, too:

  • Agyness Deyn topped Grazia Magazine's best dressed list for the second year running, followed by Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. [via UK PopSugar]

  • Thakoon will design the next diffusion line for Target (yay!), which will launch in December and be available in Target stores and online through January. [via New York Magazine]

  • Sit down for this one: Rumor has it Alexander McQueen is on tap to do a Target Go International collection! [via British Vogue]

  • Spanish fashion chain Zara has overtaken Gap to become the world's largest clothing retailer. [via British Vogue]

  • Get a sneak peek at Samantha Pleet's capsule collection for Urban Outfitters, Rapscallion, which will be available in October at select Urban Outfitters. [via Refinery29]

  • More fall collaborations for Urban Outfitters: one with Grey Ant, which will release a "Grey Antics" line exclusive to the store, and a capsule collection with Spring and Clifton. [via Nylon]

  • Now you can shop Project Runway Season 5 winner Christian Siriano's line at Bluefly. [reader tip]

  • Why a fake necklace can cost $585. [New York Magazine]

Question: how do the #s on the picture relate to the bullets in the post? particularly i'm wondering about that purple dress... is it zara?

The numbers refer to how the ladies ranked on Grazia's best-dressed list (bullet one).

Welcome back, kitten! I was surprised by the Zara news, too ... and am still hoping that they'll eventually make their way out to MN. A girl can dream.

that no. 1 is the one you showed with the sneakers and shorts, right? she looks really nice in this picture, which goes to show that she should dress like this more often and lose the converse shoes. leave the kids' clothes to the chinese gymnasts who are around 3 years old anyway.
