Target’s New GO Line Is Designed by…Target?!Target has commissioned limited-edition GO lines by Jovovich-Hawk, Gryson, Botkier, and Richard Chai. But today, the retailer announced it will keep the GO line going in between guest-designed lines, with collections designed in-house.
Breaking: Richard Chai Confirmed for TargetThe next designer for Target’s ever-popular GO International line? As speculated, it’s bright young thing and Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation winner Richard Chai. Chai comes from the hallowed halls of Marc Jacobs (he helped launch Marc by Marc) and TSE; he finally launched his own eponymous line in 2004. Time seems ripe for the big bullet, doesn’t it? His diffusion line — expect clean and modern but with old-school details — will hit in early August.

Ellen Pompeo Weds at City Hall, Cheers Up Knicks FansGrey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo got married, shotgunNew York style! The smoky actress secretly tied the knot with her longtime beau Chris Ivery in City Hall on Friday. Despite the fact that both of their hometowns are in the Boston area, the pair opted for a simple ceremony witnessed by Mayor Bloomberg himself. “They are over the moon,” Pompeo’s spokeswoman, Jennifer Allen, told the Boston Globe. Last month Pompeo told People that she hadn’t started planning, despite the fact that she’d been engaged to Ivery for over a year, so this may have been a spur-of-the-moment thing. While they were here, the newlyweds snagged courtside seats at Sunday’s Knicks game. How cute! At least there was one functional relationship down there that fans could root for.
