The simple design and small shape of a clutch lend themselves to all manner of artistic expression, and yet so frequently, that meager bag real estate is overwhelmed by logos. On the flip side, of course, you have your customizable Edie Parkers, your little Alexander McQueen skulls and your iconic Judith Leiber creations.
Remember when you were freshly 18 and it felt like you could finally go out and do anything? Remember how liberating that felt? Except you couldn’t actually do ANYTHING, because you weren’t a trust fund baby (though some of you maybe were, but just go with me here), so you had to satisfy your need for adventure by smoking a legal cigarette or maybe registering to vote?
Celebs were eternally “out and about” last week, and precious few seemed to have any real agenda. Even more shocking: very few had anything to promote. This is pretty unusual, and the lack of fervent PR activity makes me feel kind of useless, to be honest.
Fall is fast approaching, and perhaps for that very reason, celebs are getting a little adventurous with their handbag choices. This roundup is pretty evenly split between classic black leather bags from Fendi, Chanel and The Row that could survive any season, as well as bling-tastic selections from Miu Miu, Bulgari and others that are very now.
Celebs try to get away with some strange trends in the summer. Thigh-high suede boots, for example, are extremely popular with a certain set. This week overalls are making a mild comeback, though honestly I feel like some celeb or another gets the nifty idea to wear overalls in public every six months or so.
Lest we forget, there are other actresses in Suicide Squad besides Margot Robbie, including retired supermodel Cara Delevingne. And while Margot is all florals and Gucci for this press tour, Cara is naturally taking things in a slightly different direction: she’s packed all of her best mesh tops and thigh-high Louboutins.
Last week celebs partied down with politics, and Gigi Hadid managed to stay one step ahead of us with her handbag choices. Also, Margot Robbie has finally begun her super stylish press tour for Suicide Squad, and we expect our photo service to be pretty generous with her pictures for the foreseeable future.
