London Fashion Week is upon us, and this week it happened to overlap with the Oscars, which meant that LFW was an A-list actor-free zone during the first few days. London’s best “it” girls, pop singers, and modeling legends still turned out in force, of course.
This week, Christian Dior launched a brand new handbag in London, and a choice selection of British celebs (and their favorite Dior bags) turned out to welcome the Dior Diorama into the world. Back across the pond, the usual paparazzi-friendly celebs did their daily grind in NYC and LA, albeit with some highly unusual bag selections.
Celebrity fashion continues to drive home the fact that LA and NYC are polar (vortex) opposites, but the bag picks of half-frozen supermodels and bare-armed actresses on both coasts are always choice, even when the weather is less than idyllic. In related news, the Givenchy Mini Pandora has emerged as this week’s “bag for all seasons.”
Louis Vuitton launched a new fashion exhibition in LA last Thursday night, and of course, celebs flocked to the event with their very best Louis Vuitton bags in tow. We’ve showcased a few of the more unusual selections from the launch party for you in today’s celeb roundup, alongside the usual mix of celebs carrying bags in airports and outside hotels or TV stations.
Doing these celeb round-ups has really given me a more comprehensive idea of what celebs are carrying on any given week. (Amanda has always been the one tasked with wading through piles of celeb photos to make these selections, bless her.) It means I see almost 20 different bag selections every week instead of just five, which leads me to observations, like the fact that brands like Proenza Schouler and Chloé are more popular right now than you might suspect.
Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour has quietly-yet-deliberately infiltrated the hearts and minds of celebrities over the past year. It’s not that the bag itself is remarkable; it’s really not, which may be part of the appeal. It’s sort of an anti-“it” bag–classically styled and fairly inconspicuous, with minimal branding.
If you’re a film buff, you’re probably aware that the Sundance Film Festival is taking place as we speak. If you’re not a film buff, you’re probably vaguely aware of Sundance because it’s the one week of the year when all of your favorite celebs are randomly photographed wearing parkas and standing next to scenic, snowy mountain vistas.
Our celeb roundups are always full of ridiculously good looking people, but this week, we’ve got a full roster of a certain type of particularly enviable female celeb. You know the type: tall, slender, great legs, and even better jawlines. They’re the kind of women who get tapped to be the face of a new perfume, or more likely, the new face of a classic perfume that’s been around for ages.
