We’re counting down the days until Jason Wu’s Target collection goes on sale — mark your calendar for Feb. 5! — but starlets Blake Lively, Chloë Moretz, Emmy Rossum and Jaime King were among the lucky few who go to shop a preview sale Thursday night at the Skylight Soho in New York.
Featuring feminine dresses, colorful skirts and must-have bags, the line is sure to sell out in a second. To that end, Wu said he didn’t design the collection for a specific type of shopper, but that every girl will likely appreciate the line. “We all want to be a little glamorous, a little playful and a little mischievous at times,” he told PEOPLE. “And I think that the collection really brings that out.”
When it comes to playing fashion critic, Chloë Moretz isn’t bashful.
The Hugo star also has a knack for labeling her own style. “I have a lot of looks,” she admits, “but right now I’m really into grunge. Messy hair, black heels. I get Michelle Pfeiffer with it.”
But that doesn’t mean the 14-year-old has a veteran star’s budget. “I love going to Topshop, Urban Outfitters and American Apparel,” she gushes. “My mom won’t let me buy high-fashion stuff unless it’s TJ Maxx — or a birthday occasion.”
As heels get higher, necklines become more daring and hems skew shorter, 14-year-old Chloë Moretz says she’s staying above the influence.
“I think you can push the boundaries in a way of edginess, but I think you should try to stay appropriate to your age, definitely,” she tells HollywoodLife.com.
Much like her teenaged contemporary Elle Fanning, who recently said she likes when people call her style “weird,” the Hugo star would rather garner attention for unorthodox tastes. “I like to push the boundaries in what I wear, in that it’s new and kind of funky. I’m usually a bit different than almost everyone else on the carpet.”
Case in point, as stars flocked to Wednesday’s People’s Choice Awards in looks currently unavailable to the public, Moretz opted to wear a tweed frock from Proenza Schouler’s pre-fall 2010 collection, a version of which is currently available for $250 on RentTheRunway.com.

Not every 14-year-old gets to spend an evening with Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively, Emma Stone and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. But that’s how Chloë Moretz spent her Tuesday night — albeit with her mother in tow.
“Mom’s a pretty good date,” the actress told PEOPLE before Tuesday’s star-studded tribute to director Pedro Almodóvar. “We look exactly alike and she’s beautiful.”
Moretz’s ensemble was also beautiful: the rising star wore a sparkly black-and-blush Chanel number and black heels. But the outfit came with a couple of complications. “I had to be sewn into it,” Moretz admitted. “There are no clips in the back and these aren’t real buttons.”
The Kick-Ass star has had her fair share of sartorial milestones since hitting the scene: she’s been dressed by just about every big-name designer, and even won an award for her fashion sense at last week’s Hollywood Style Awards. But a major highlight for the teen was trying on Hick costar Blake Lively‘s Christian Louboutins.

Usually at Hollywood awards shows, actors honor each other, with a director or producer tossed in for good measure. But Monday at L.A.’s Smashbox Studios during the Hollywood Style Awards presented by the Palazzo Las Vegas, the tables were turned a bit, as stars celebrated the artists who make them look their best when the cameras aren’t rolling.
Presenting the evening’s top awards were stylish stars such as Zoe Saldana, Mandy Moore, Rose McGowan, Kristin Davis and Eva Longoria, who paid tribute to their hair stylist, makeup artist, colorist, wardrobe stylist and photographer, respectively.
Being 14 and walking red carpets requires a bit of balance: for actress Chloë Moretz, it means making fashion-forward choices while still looking fresh and demure. So the Hick star turns to three trusted authorities — her stylist, her mom and her brother — every time she leaves the house for an event.
“It’s all up to my stylist, Nell Kalonji,” Moretz recently told PEOPLE. “I owe it to her for everything she pulls for me and puts together for me. [I] have to be very age appropriate, but at the same time flirty and chic and young.”
Luckily, that’s not an issue for the star. “I definitely keep it safe because I’m not that kind of girl,” she explained. “I’m not risqué — I’m very normal and grounded. So I definitely don’t want to get older when I have a lot of time to do that.”
So far, she’s kept it youthful on the red carpet, making stylish statements in dresses by the likes of Versace, Christopher Kane, Stella McCartney and Kenzo. And she’s learned the art of fashion moderation, too. As she mused, “A little bit of Dolce goes a long way.”
