Quote of the Day: Prabal Gurung on Runway Diversity

Prabal Gurung

"I always say, cute is cute. Whether you're white, Asian, black — if you're cute, you're cute. I see no discrimination and I've never been like that. When I use a black model it's not because I want to make a statement. It's because I think they're beautiful... It's everyone' responsibility, whether it's the designer, stylists, writers, editors, to understand that beauty is universal. Come on — it's 2014."

- Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung addresses his feelings on diversity among models on the runways at this year's New York Fashion Week.

Prabal Gurung for Target

Prabal Gurung's Target collection isn't going to hit stores until next year, but the retail giant offered fashion fans a sneak peek at what to expect.

Vogue reports that the pieces - which will range from $20-$200 - will incorporate "loads of his signature prints and graphic details," all of which were inspired by love. Gurung has previously spoken of his excitement for the line: "I believe collaborations... allow you to reach a wider audience. For me, it is an exciting challenge to interpret my aesthetic into a mass-produced product."

The 80-piece collection will hit stores and Target.com on February 10, 2013.

Kate Hudson Style Clashes With Mom

Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn wore matching dresses to the Elle Women in Hollywood gala on Monday. The actress and her Hollywood legend mother accidentally attended the event in the same style one-shoulder dress, with Kate sporting one in black with iridescent paillettes by up-and-coming designer Prabal Gurung, and Goldie in a white Gianfranco Ferre design.

"When we came in we were like, 'Ooh,' and we felt, like, a one-shoulder thing happening!"

Goldie later presented Kate with one of the night's awards at the gala, hosted by Harrison Ford. Both Goldie, 64, and Kate, 31, laughed off their dress clash, but Kate admitted the harshest critic of her dress sense is her son Ryder.

"Oh my gosh, he's my biggest critic, always asking: 'What is that?' I always know when he likes it when he sees me and he doesn't say anything and he gets kind of flushed. I go, 'Uh-oh. That means you like it!'"
