Lena Dunham didn't win an Emmy, but her unusual cotton-candy-like skirt and simple blouse from Giambattista Valli got a lot of OMG attention from red-carpet commentators -- and we mean that in a bad way. Even before her Emmys appearance on Monday, Dunham had hinted that she was going to wear something unusual: "All I'm gonna say about my Emmy dress is that it looks like cake and feels like sweatpants #loveandjoy," she said Aug. 13 on Twitter, my colleague Christie DZurilla reported at the L.A. Times' Ministry of Gossip.

Just in time for the holidays, Target plans to introduce a capsule collection of girls' clothing and accessories designed by Renee Ehrlich Kalfus, costume designer for the upcoming remake of the movie “Annie.”  The collection is inspired by the film, produced by Jay Z and Will Smith and starring Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Rose Byrne and Cameron Diaz. The 25-piece collection will be available at all Target stores in the United States and on Target.com beginning Nov. 16, ahead of the film's scheduled release Dec. 19, Target announced via news release on Tuesday.
