Forget about Missoni selling out. That was yesterday’s news at Target. Today’s big news is the A-listers who appeared on Target’s semi-annual managers meeting at Target Center Wednesday afternoon.
Should we start with the Big O? Oprah wore a little red and khaki as she yakked for about 10 minutes, referring to lots of donations of library books, according to our spy. Another star associated with red, Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, appeared once again. He’s become a regular at these events.
Another repeater was Taylor Swift, who has had a long tie-in with Target. And there was another Taylor of older vintage, James Taylor. Speaking of veterans, Tony Bennett serenaded Target managers again, hyping his "Duets II."
Alison Krauss + Union Station, who played at the soldout Orpheum on Tuesday, performed at Target Center to thank the retailer for promoting an exclusive CD with extra tracks. Willow Smith also whipped her hair for Target.
A pregnant Beyoncé closed the extravaganza, touting her Target exclusive version of her album "4" and her soon-to-be family of three.
