The latest September issue drop: Kristen Stewart for Elle. Given how tight Stewart is with Karl Lagerfeld — most recently, she starred in the ads for the Chanel Paris-Dallas collection and turned up on the couture show's front row with a badass new haircut — it makes sense that she would rock some looks from the brand for her cover shoot. But the styling team didn't stop at Chanel clothing: They also re-created that infamous (and awesome) supermarket set from the brand's fall show. Or, you know, just shot in a real grocery store. {Elle}

Joseph Altuzarra is in the final stages of his upcoming collection for Target, which goes on sale Sept. 14 at the retailer and on Net-a-Porter. Despite having a strong backing from fashion industry heavyweights, the young designer says the exposure that comes with a Target collaboration — think magazine, billboard and television spots — is well beyond what he would be able to achieve on his own. Plus, the sales could prove to be a million-dollar boon to his business. {New York Times}

Wanelo, the social shopping app that got off to a buzzy start in 2011, has started piloting in-app checkout as part of its service. Like many other mobile commerce startups, Wanelo has until this point used an affiliate program to link out to retailers and take a cut of the sale. Given that mobile shopping has become one of the most-watched areas of e-commerce, we'll be looking to see how well the service's customers take to this feature. {Recode}
