Zac Posen x Target Pop-Up Shopping Party In NYC

Zac Posen x Target Invitation

This event is open to the public, and the collection is supposed to “make every woman feel like a movie star.” That’s right, we can all buy ‘n’ boogie. Will we see you there?

Us New Yorkers are lucky. Tomorrow night is the 24 pop-up shopping party for Zac Posen’s Go International collection for Target.

From 11 p.m. on April 15 to 11 p.m. on April 16, the entire collection – ranging from $16.99 to $199.99 – will be available in a pop-up shop located at 481 Eighth Avenue at 34th Street in Manhattan.

Special performances by The Like and DJ Kid America, DJ The Other Will, and DJ Luisiul. We wonder if any celebrities will stop by. Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Lucy Liu, and Demi Moore are among the zillions of Posen fans.

Can’t make it to the party? Have you signed up for our site? We’ll make sure you never miss out on one OUR online Pop-Shops!

The Zac Posen for Target collection will be available in Target stores nationwide and online April 25. Here are some looks from the collection.

Jay-Z Doesn’t Want Your Candy, But He Likes His Nike Dunks and Audemars Piguet Watch

Willy Wonka candy with Golden Tickets

When you live in New York City, you occasionally see kids in the subway trying to sell you candy. Sometimes they’re raising money for their soccer team or their school marching band’s trip – and sometimes they just buy candy in bulk a la Costco, etc., to raise some cash for themselves. There’s no harm in that.

Looks like one of these candy kids tried to sell to Jay-Z – on the street, no less – outside Bar Pitti in Manhattan’s West Village.

We wonder if this is how it played out when he tried to holla for a dolla’ at Shawn Carter

Kid: Excuse me, sir, I’m trying to raise money for my basketball team. Would you be interested in buying some candy? I have M&Ms, peanut M&Ms …

Jay-Z: Nah, sorry. I don’t eat chocolate …

Kid: I have Skittles? … Oh. I’m outta Skittles.

Jay-Z: Unless you’ve got a Willy Wonka Bar with a golden ticket it in, I don’t want it. Hold on, you got any of those Harry Potter chocolate frogs? The ones that come to life?

Kid: No, Mr. Jay-Z, sir.

… Better luck next time, kid.

Mr. Jay-Z was looking pretty slick in his destroyed Prps jeans, Nike Dunk Hi Premium sneakers (in a red oxide), and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch with gold case (estimated $37,000). Looks like he could’ve sprung for some candy, but, maybe he was just in a rush.
