Hint: Harper was involved

The following feature appears in the April 2017 issue of NYLON. 

Target’s latest designer collaboration will have you feeling very posh indeed: This spring, Victoria Beckham has teamed up with the retailer to launch a collection, which is finally dropping on Sunday. “For a while now I have wanted to offer something to a wider group of women, who either don’t want to or can’t afford to pay designer prices,” Beckham says. “When Target approached me, it was clear that this was the perfect opportunity to bring a more accessible collection to life for that wider audience.” Here, the designer reveals her inspirations for the line, and gives us a look at her creative process. 

What was your inspiration for this collection?
The Target collection is a reflection of my Victoria, Victoria Beckham line, which has always represented the more relaxed and playful side of my own wardrobe. But this collection is also inspired by my everyday life, and within that all of the experiences I’ve shared with my daughter, Harper. 

How would you describe your creative process?
My team and I have now been working on this project for over a year, and it’s been a really collaborative process. I’ve worked closely with them on everything from the product design to the marketing campaign. The end result has exceeded even my own expectationsI’m so proud of the collection, and I can’t wait to wear it!

You’ve expanded beyond women’s wear and also created looks for babies, toddlers, and girls. What inspired you to design for a wide range of ages?
With Harper and my VVB line both turning six this year, it felt like the perfect opportunity and moment to make my first foray into children’s wear. I had a lot of fun designing for kids, because I really felt that I could draw on my own personal experiences as a mum of four children of all different ages, and tell a story through the clothes. 

What are some of your favorite pieces from this collection?
I love every single piece, so it’s very hard to choose! I’m probably most drawn to the soft tailored pieces, like the tuxedo shirt and the calla lily shirt and pants.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
