Retail giant Target most recently collaborated with Hollywood’s most popular stylist, Kate Young, for a fashion line consisting mostly of occasion dresses and is aptly named, Kate Young for Target. The much-awaited launch event was held last April 9, 2013 at The Old School in New York City and featured a prom theme as evidenced by boutonnieres tied to guests’ wrists, models posing as teenage sweethearts, and a faux gym decorated with streamers, balloons, and shining disco ball at the center of the venue. To further liven up the event, the up and coming It-girl DJ Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, daughter of Duran Duran’s John Taylor, spun groovy tunes as guests sipped pink champagne during the event made possible by Target.

The event was a success as the edgy, fashionable, and chic personalities from the entertainment, fashion, and music industries graced the red carpet launch. Among the attendees were Michelle Williams, Jason Wu, Derek Blasberg, Giada De Laurentiis, Kate Mara, Debby Ryan, Ally Hilfiger, and Lauren Bush among others. The 35-year old actress, Maggie Gyllenhaal, was also one of the celebrity models who were at the Tuesday evening bash. The gorgeous actress posed for the cameras wearing an elegant one-shoulder black star print dress designed by super stylist, Kate Young. She then accented her outfit with a two row diamond bracelet from the jewelry house of Jacob & Co. The stunning bracelet Maggie wore featured over 23 carats of square emerald and emerald cut diamonds and complemented her look beautifully.

The exquisite beauty of this 23-carat bracelet was not only seen worn by Maggie Gyllenhaal as celebrities and even members of the royal family were spotted to have worn the same bracelet design in the past few months. Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke was seen last March 18,2013 at the show’s Season 3 Premier held in TLC Chinese Theatre wearing a Victoria Beckham royal blue dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and the magnificent two row diamond bracelet designed by Jeweler to the Stars himself, Jacob Arabov.

A Game of Thrones is a popular fantasy TV series adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of epic novels, A Song of Ice and Fire.

The engrossing story is set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos and follows through the multitude of interesting plots led by main characters featured on A Story of Ice and Fire novel.

Due to the well-paced, well-acted, and well-shot features on its first season, Game of Thrones received a plethora of nominations from several award-winning bodies. During the 2011 Emmy Awards, the HBO special took home two out of thirteen nominations. It was also in 2011 that Game of Thrones was celebrated as the Best TV Show by Scream Awards. The same award-giving body gave awards to Game of Thrones key characters Peter Dinklage for Best Supporting Actor and Emilia Clarke for Breakthrough Performance by a Female Actress. The undeniable high ratings and huge following of Game of Thrones has made it possible for HBO to consistently renew the show. Although its third season just started this April, HBO had already renewed for season four to be aired in 2014.

The anticipation for the 3rd season of the Game of Thrones franchise was at its highest when its cast and crew gathered at Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre for the hit TV show’s premiere party.

To complete her alluring ensemble, Emilia wore a brilliant Two Row Diamond Bracelet with over 23 carats of square emerald and emerald cut diamond designed by famous jeweler, Jacob Arabov.

Dancing with the Stars is a US TV reality show inspired by Strictly Come Dancing of British television. The show premiered in 2005 and is currently on its 16th Season. Professional dancers are paired up with celebrities to perform popular ballroom dances and compete against each other for the title of season’s champion of Dancing with the Stars. Through its eight-year run, famous personalities have participated in the show, namely Denise Richards, Mario Lopez, Jennifer Grey, Stacy Keibler, Kelly Monaco, and Kristie Alley. Judges as well as the audience choose the best performances and vote out the worst pair until the final showdown whereby 3 pairs are left for the winning title.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a professional Latin ballroom dancer and mainstay of Dancing with the Stars. The Ukranian-born choreographer and instructor started his stint on the hit show during its second season and has been paired up with brilliant personalities like Tia Carrere, Willa Ford, Laila Ali, Brandy, and Melissa Gilbert. In total, Maksim has appeared in 13 seasons of Dancing with the Stars, and was able to make it to the final round four times with his partners Laila Ali, Mel B, Erin Andrews, and Kirstie Alley.

Aside from his natural good looks, Maksim is known to be one of the best-dressed professional dancers from the ABC dance show. This is widely evident in his choice in clothing and jewelry. On February 20, 2013, the famous Latin ballroom dancer was seen entering the jewelry house owned by Jacob Arabov, Jacob & Co. He was joined by his brother, a professional dancer participant of Dancing with the Stars as well, Valentin Chmerkovskiy. The two celebrity dancers were warmly welcomed by Jacob Arabov himself.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy bought an elegantly-crafted watch from the New York designer’s Grand Collection. The timepieces from this collection are similar to that of the legendary Five Time Zone watches designed by Jacob Arabov. Although there are similar features between the watches from these two collections, Grand Collection watches showcase a distinct design that is just as memorable and grand as the jewelry brand’s iconic Five Time Zone watches. The watches from the Grand Collection display times of four cities from around the globe which are popularly known as hubs of 24-hour commerce and interesting cultural life – New York, LA, Paris, and Tokyo. Grand Collection watches show the local time on a dial of the same dimension as that of the other time zones, resulting in a pentagon-shaped design. This high-concept and innovative design is seldom used in wristwatch making, and is considered to be exquisite and elegant by choice of the rich and famous. Elegant timepieces from the Grand Collection are sold at $6800 each.

Jacob Arabov established his jewelry house 25 years ago in New York’s Kaplan Jewelry District. His keen eye for beauty and great sense of fashion can be seen not only in watches but also in his impossibly beautiful jewelry collections.
