Emma Roberts is a self-professed "clothing hoarder." Not a problem if it's Missoni ...

Target’s Missoni launch on September 7 combined our favorite things: fashion, shopping and celebrities.

Rachel Zoe, Amar’e Stoudemire, Hilary Rhoda, Brad Goreski, and more turned out to scoop up affordable Missoni at a private Target pop up event on 42nd Street in Manhattan.

Elizabeth Olsen, little sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley, tells FashionEtc she loves shopping, especially online. But, she admits, “I’m very lazy, I never return anything. I usually try and find someone else who’s going to want it.”

Malin Akerman says that she’s been a longtime Target fan. “Target is someplace that I’ve been going since I moved to L.A., which is 10 years ago,” the actress explains.

“In all honesty, we go regularly, whenever we need anything for the kitchen, for the bedroom, a new bikini, whenever there’s a new line that comes out from a new designer.”

“I love shopping. I will shop forever,” Emma Roberts declares, and she must have good closet space. “I’m a clothing hoarder; like, I can’t throw away things. So I have a lot of stuff I never wear.”

For Nina Garcia, shopping is second nature. “It’s in my DNA,” the Project Runway judge says. “The only sport I know—fashion shopping.”

Some of the women talked shopping with their significant others. Georgina Chapman of Marchesa fame reveals that her hubby Harvey Weinstein is, “uh, not such a good shopper.”

Does Camila Alves’s other half, Matthew McConaughey endure endless try-ons? “No, he’ll leave the shopping to me,” Alves tells us, laughing.

But Doutzen Kroes and her husband Sunnery James reverse that male-female cliché. “He’s a worse shopper; I’m impatient with him,” the Victoria’s Secret beauty says. “I don’t want to go shopping with him, he takes forever.”

And, Kroes insists, her man is very patient when she is shopping. “He loves it, so I’m lucky.”
