Incredible, isnt it? January is quickly drawing to a close, and February seems far closer than it really should be. Perhaps we’re biased, but we think this is a great time to take a break and enjoy January’s last Roundup. There’s lots to see this week, and we know you will be pleased with the spectacular eye candy, from Coach bags to butterflies, that’s in store for you after the jump.
Pre-teen starlets! They turn into teen starlets so fast. Here’s 15 year old Chloe Moretz, looking all kinds of adorable in Paris on her way to the Dior Haute Couture show. She’s carrying what we’ve dubbed the Dior Spring 2013 Runway Tote (its formal name has yet to be announced). That a 15-year-old actress has this bag is a tad envy-inducing – it’s one of the first original bag designs that Raf Simons debuted in his Dior Spring 2013 runway show last fall.
Oscar de la Renta is the king of elegance and glamour, so it only makes sense that his unique, highly detailed aesthetic continues to flourish in his accessories collections. I’ve watched his handbags transform, becoming more refined and beautiful season by season, and it’s fitting that the designer has one of the best clutch games out there. When it comes to evening wear, Oscar knows how to transform a woman into her most beautiful self, and it’s now clear that he also knows how to help her accessorize her most glamourous self.
Valentino’s diffusion line, Red Valentino, is really lovely. I mean that. With bows, pastels and ladylike details, the Red Valentino manages to capture the elegant, ladylike feel of the main collection, but at a lower price point. Today at 12 PM ET on MYHABIT, get an even better deal and save during the Red Valentino flash sale.
I feel like I know you guys at this point, so I’m going to be straight with you: I’m feeling a little bit under the weather today. (Wash your hands and take your vitamins, kids, it’s really going around this winter.) With that in mind, I’d like to get directly to the heart of the matter: it’s Friday, and that means we have some bags that you might want to buy on the (relatively) cheap.
With New York Fashion Week coming up in just a few weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what we can expect to see on attendees at Lincoln Center. Even an untrained eye can spot the high-powered magazine editors in the milieu; there’s a level of refinement that they’ve mastered that few others possess. (Contacts at the best brands in the world don’t hinder that pursuit, obviously.) Other than a few over-the-top street style stars, editors mostly look luxurious and stylish, but also somewhat nondescript.
We’re continuing our Birkin-less celeb post spree this week with a host of vastly more likable celebs carrying the best, the brightest, and the most unique designer bags. Here’s Drew Barrymore in all of her gloriousness (and in full-on boho “new mommy” mode), stepping out in NYC with an Opening Ceremony OC NY Bag. We can’t find Drew’s exact orange bag with fuchsia piping, but the basic brown calfskin version is easily attainable for $750 at Shopbop.
When I look at my handbag collection, I always find that I am lacking when it comes to neutral colors. I’m usually drawn to bold shades, but having a great neutral bag is mighty important, and I am now on the hunt for one myself. The best part about neutral hues is you can carry the bag for every season and many years – the shades work with warm winter colors and bright spring pastels alike.
This may sound a little bit weird, but I’m really glad that Amanda Seyfried is famous. I’ve been a fan of hers since the halcyon days of Mean Girls, in which she stole every scene she was in, and I’ve been silently rooting for her success ever since. And now, here she is, with a big role in Oscar-nominated Les Miserables and several more films in the pipeline.
