Target: has a brand ever before fully encompassed Tina Brown‘s vision for a high/low cultural Utopia? Take for instance, the outlet’s weekend release of its new Jason Wu collection just in time for New York’s Fashion Week (for people who don’t live in New York).

Lana Del Rey week continues with the newly unveiled cover of British Vogue, featuring the lippy musician in a Louis Vuitton blouse with the headline “The fascinating Lana Del Rey.” Boy, they’re not kidding!

What? Are you telling us that H&M–a company that sells a line by Versace and holds itself up to the highest quality of clothing (until it falls apart in three months)–actually plagiarizes other people’s materials?

In her wedding chest, every little girl keeps cutouts of their perfect bridal dress. There’s the one that makes the statement “Classy but subtle,” the one that makes you feel like a princess, and then finally, the one that tells the world, “Don’t throw out your gift receipts just yet.”
