The Hot List

As fashion fans, you no doubt keep up with every emerging trend, all the latest books and shows, not to mention all the latest news and views, but given the fast-paced world of fashion, it isn’t easy. Luckily, our monthly edition of The Hot List is here to help! We have picked out six events that we believe you need to know about in May, so click through to discover all the details and make sure you take notes as there is plenty to take in!

Advanced Style
Since 2008, Ari Seth Cohen has been documenting the personal style of the over-60 set at Advanced Style, his blog. Now, however, the crème de la crème of Ari’s photographs have been collected and published in Advanced Style, the book, alongside interviews, stories, advice, and a series of never-before-seen photographs of some of the world’s most stylish octogenarians. You can pre-order your copy of Advanced Style ($35) now from ahead of its May 22 launch.

The Shops at Target
Target has already collaborated with some of the best designers in the world, so when it announced its new initiative, the Shops at Target, we were intrigued. The Shops at Target is a showcase of products from five American boutiques—including Cos Bar, The Candy Store, and The Webster. The five boutiques cover everything from clothes and beauty through to candy, so head to your nearest Target store, or, today.

Guerlain + Pucci
When we heard that Guerlain had teamed up with Pucci on a beauty collection, our hearts were all a-flutter—and with good reason! The “Terra Azzurra” collection features a Bronzing Powder & Blush, a Meteorites Perles d’Azur pot, a Meteorites Pucci Collector’s Brush, an eyeshadow quad, a mascara, an eye pencil, three lip glosses, and two nail polishes. The Terra Azzurra collection arrives at stores like Nordstrom and Sephora this month. Prices start at $22.

Stars in Dior
Never mind that Stars in Dior only launches in France this month—we want it and we want it now. After all, the book features photographs of some of the world’s most famous women—including Charlize Theron—in amazing Dior couture dresses, as well as behind-the-scenes photographs. Luckily, if you are not in France, you can pre-order your copy of Stars in Dior ($65) from now ahead of its September 4 launch.

The Met Gala
Tonight is the night that the crème de la crème of the fashion world—Gisele, Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, to name just a few—descend upon the Metropolitan Museum in New York for the annual Costume Institute Gala. To say we are excited would be an understatement, especially given that the muses for the evening are Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. Who will attend? What will they wear? The excitement is too much to handle.

Guess’s 30th Anniversary
Guess is marking its 30th anniversary this year with quite the celebration. Not only has the Guess team commissioned a special campaign featuring one of its original models, Claudia Schiffer—who, by the way, doesn’t look like she has aged since her first Guess campaign in 1989—but they have released an anniversary collection that features some of Guess’s most iconic pieces. Don’t hesitate! Check out the full collection now at
