Talent Show
Is Blake Mycoskie the next rap superstar? The Toms Shoes founder tested his lyrical skills last week, with the unveiling of a YouTube video featuring him and his team (and even parents) on a thrift-store shopping spree. The attire? Full bling, of course. “That’s my finance department and those are typically not the people you see letting loose,” quipped Mycoskie.

Prom Night
Kate Young and Target are taking a trip down memory lane. To fête the launch of the celebrity stylist’s spring collection for the retailer (which features some special-occasion items), Target held a prom night-themed event in New York last week. So what was the real prom like for Young’s VIP guests? “We wore Toms with our dresses to hit the dance floor,” 19-year-old Disney actress Debby Ryan told Spy. “We went to Burger King after and got Icees.” Lauren Bush Lauren also had memories of a laid-back party. “We had a school dance, but it was more casual, so I didn’t have to wear a poofy dress.”
