You can mark every spring by one recurring fashion trend: the return of the mini bag. They’re back every year right around now, and this year, they seem to be more miniature than ever. (But, then again, I feel like I say that every year.) In addition to a fresh crop of mini bags, we also have a double dose of jet-setting Jennifer Lopez for you, plus an appearance by her eminence Judge Judy, whom we would include in many more celeb handbag roundups, if given the opportunity.
Celebs at home and abroad dragged out their favorite Gucci bags last week, whether they were hot off the runway or several seasons old. Gucci is enjoying massive success with its latest lines of shoes and handbags, and we have to wonder which storied fashion house will have this sort of mini-renaissance next.
The Tod’s Wave Bag continues to gain steam this week, while a few other new celeb bag picks are all set to join the crop of this season’s most highly coveted. That’s all business as usual, of course; what’s perhaps more curious about this crop of celeb snaps is how many celebrities happened to grab lunch or dinner with other celebrities last week.
It’s a strange day at my virtual news desk when an indie musician has the nicest, newest Chanel bag in our entire celebrity handbag roundup. We’re featuring all of our usual Real Housewives, ex-Real Housewives, TV personalities and pop starlets, and yet, some of these high-end handbag selections have frankly seen better days.
Kerry Washington has carved out a space for herself in the fashion world using the pointy heel of a limited-edition Louboutin. She wears an insane amount of rare (and rarely seen again) Loubs in her day to day life, and in my own fantasy world, the brand promptly retires many of the styles afterwards, because how can you top Olivia Pope?
Lupita Nyong’o’s rise to fame is one of the best things that’s happened to celebrity fashion-watchers in years. When she first caught the public’s attention during her Oscar run for 2013’s 12 Years a Slave, she established herself as someone who has a keen sense for color, supports designers both big and small and takes fashion risks that almost always pay off.
