Was Tao Okamoto on Phillip Lim‘s mind while he designed for Target? Lim credited the model-actress as his inspiration during Estée Lauder’s Modern Muse launch saying she was a “classic beauty who is also very handsome,” perhaps a nod to his borrowed-from-the-boys looks at the bullseye brand.

Now that New York Fashion Week is over, one question remains: which designer came out on top? While we all have our personal favorites (Cushnie et Ochs and Alexander Wang for starters), one clothier stood out from the rest. According to Mashable, Michael Kors Spring 2014 was the most-streamed show during the week. [Racked]

Back to your roots will take on new meaning for Christopher Kane this year. He’s opening his first flagship store in London, where his label was born. “This is the first step in a new chapter for the Christopher Kane brand,” CEO Alexandre de Brettes said. “London is a powerful retail centre, so our store will become not only a destination for a global consumer but an incredible marketing platform for the brand around the world.” [Vogue UK]

Girls love Beyoncé, and ladies love LongchampGuardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana was live in London to celebrate Longchamp’s new Regent Street flagship. Flanked by her mother and grandmother, the actress gushed over the brand’s “classy” offerings and noted her go-to bags. “Always a black clutch or a black tote,” Saldana told ELLE.com. “I’m a New Yorker, so black is always going to be the safe classic. And something red. I always have a hint of red somewhere.” [ELLE]

Lines are going to get blurred on the set of Gone Girl. “Blurred Lines” model Emily Ratajkowski has been cast as Ben Affleck‘s college-aged mistress in the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling book. [The Wrap]
