Gwen Stefani launching a Harajuku Mini childrenswear line at Target!

Target’s Missoni collaboration may have had the fashion pack in a frenzy, but for style-conscious mothers, it is Gwen Stefani’s Harajuki Mini childrenswear line that is the one worth waiting for.

Today, the retailer released a sneak peek of the campaign, and judging by the items featured, it promises to be a huge hit.
The star, 41, appears in the image herself, posing alongside a young model sporting her creations.

The youngster’s tee, cardigan and tutu bear all the hallmarks of Ms Stefani’s L.A.M.B and Harajuku Lovers ranges, with bright colours and Japanese-inspired illustrations.

It promises to be a hit with the singer’s two young sons, Kingston, five and Zuma, three, who both already display an adventurous style sense.

And given her friendships with Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, we may also be spotting her designs on the backs of other celebrities’ children too.

Target’s non-famous fans will be relieved to learn, however, that prices for Harajuku Mini will be easy on the pocket, ranging from just $3.99 to $29.99.

The star’s debut collection is due to go on sale across the U.S. on November 13, with a second due to hit stores in January.

In a release announcing the collaboration in July, Ms Stefani said: ‘Harajuku Mini is a dream come true.

‘I’ve always wanted to do a cool children’s fashion line inspired by the super-cute and playful kid’s clothing you find in Japan,’ she said.

‘The whole idea is about being creative, expressing your own individuality and having fun getting dressed.’

She added that she had been given scope by Target to break from the typical childrenswear offering and do something different.

‘Target has given me the creative freedom to design kid’s clothing that is different than most anything you usually see out there with great quality, attention to detail and most of all, available at amazing prices,’ she said.

Target, like Gap, has collaborated with a number of high-end designers on childrenswear ranges.

Past design partnerships have included Missoni, Calypso St Barth, Zac Posen and Rodarte, all of which included pieces for babies and children.

A spokesman for Target told WWD: ‘Our strategy of differentiation isn’t exclusive to our more mature guests. We like to put the icing on the cake for all our guests. That is the fun, the flavoring of the assortment.’

The newest nail trend has arrived!

This looks pretty cool I love the purple shade.

Nails Inc. Magnetic Polish

What it is:
A revolutionary magnetic nail lacquer used to create stunning 3D nail art designs in chic metallic shades.

What it does:
Get the wow factor with this revolutionary polish that lets you create gorgeous nail art effects in just a few minutes using nails inc. Textured, special effects nails are big news for this season and the ultimate fashion and party accessory. Choose from three magnetic polishes named after iconic London attractions: Trafalgar Square (chrome), Houses of Parliament (purple), and Big Ben (gold).

What else you need to know:
This unique formula has been specially developed with metallic particles to create a pattern on the nail using magnetic forces. As the magnet is held over the nail, the iron powder in the formulation gravitates toward the magnet forming the pattern secretly hidden in the magnet for an astonishing finish. The magnet is included in the cap of the nail polish.

How to get the magnetic effect:
-Remove any oil from your nails by cleaning your nails with nail polish remover.
-Take off the over-cap that contains the magnet and set aside.
-There is an inner cap that you can use to apply the magnetic polish.
-Apply one coat of your selected nails inc. base coat.
-Then, apply one coat of your chosen magnetic polish on all 10 nails and let dry for a few minutes.
-To create the “magnetic effect,” apply a generous coat of magnetic polish to one nail, and immediately hold the cap that contains the magnet over the nail. (Do this quickly while the polish is still wet. There is a small lip on the cap which should be placed just below your cuticle allowing the magnet to be positioned perfectly over your nail.) Hold very close to the nail for 10-15 seconds, taking care not to touch the nail with the magnet.
-Repeat on all 10 nails and apply a top coat to seal the design.
