Fashion News Roundup: Uniqlo's World Domination, Karlie Kloss Mostly Naked at Anna Wintour's House and the Rise of the Man Purse

Target's Web President Exits Post-Missoni Ordeal: If you got stressed out trying to purchase those Target/Missoni collabs online when the site crashed, imagine what it was like for the poor guy in charge. Target announced that its web operations president, Steve Eastman, has left the company just a month after the fiasco, which caused more site traffic than on a typical Black Friday. {WWD} Uniqlo Set to Become Largest Apparel Retailer on Planet Earth: The fast-expanding Japanese retailer is set to have 4,000 stores worldwide by 2020, and are opening 150 overseas stores this year alone. Uniqlo's revenue goal for 2020 is $54 billion. Just... whoa. {WWD} Doo Ri Designs Custom Dress for Michelle Obama: The always-stylish First Lady appropriately chose to wear a custom modified purple Doo Ri gown for a state dinner with Korean leaders. The Korean-American designer "loves that [Obama] supports young designers." {Washington Post}

Carine Roitfeld Loves Christopher Kane, Can't Understand Him: The former editor of French Vogue was super impressed with Kane's "very personal" presentation at this year's London Fashion Week, though she admits that she finds his Scottish accent "a little difficult to understand."

Jeremy Scott for Adidas Spring 2012 First Look: These sneaks would fit right in with my Beanie Babies in their mesh toy hammock... you totally know what I'm talking about. {Racked via Pablo Olea's twitter}

Anna Wintour Hosts Cocktail Hour for Fashion Peeps: Vogue's editor in chief hosted a cocktail party at her NYC townhouse for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists, who unveiled their designs for a fashion challenge a la Project Runway.

Alexa Chung Has "It-Girl Problems": Alexa tells Teen Vogue that she spent her entire wardrobe budget for her upcoming show 24-Hour Catwalk on one Balenciaga leather jacket and that she'll have "10 episodes to do and nothing to wear." Something tells me everything will work out. I just have a feeling. {NY Mag via Teen Vogue}

Wallet-Friendly Celeb Halloween Costumes: It's somehow never occurred to me that Karl's hair really is a lot like George Washington's wig. Both men of greatness... it's all starting to make sense. {FabSugar}
