With anticipation building for the launch of Jason Wu for Target, the budget-retailer threw a star-studded soiree in honor of the boy wonder himself.
Lush white roses and vintage-inspired street lamps set the tone at the buzzing New York City party. The oh-so-French theme was fitting considering Wu's inspiration for the capsule collection: "I was inspired by the French New Wave films, actresses like Jean Seberg and Anna Karina," Wu told CBSNews. "That nonchalant chic, that effortless style, mixed with American sportswear."

To our delight, guests like Jaime King and Blake Lively opted for pieces from Wu's uber affordable line. The standout ensemble: French singer Yelle (who later performed for guests) sporting a white tee featuring Milu the cat. The cheeky feline of the Jason Wu for Target commercials is an unexpected star of the capsule collection. "I'm a cat person," Wu explained. "I thought the cat represents everything—it's elegant, it's mysterious a little bit and it's fun."
The Jason Wu for Target collection will be available in stores and online on Feburary 5.
