Fashion loves Rita Ora, and the burgeoning British pop star seems to love fashion right back. Ora’s Rihanna-esque personal style perfectly straddles the divide between streetwear and luxury that the industry is exploring with gusto at the moment, which makes her exactly the kind of celebrity on whom brands want to see their clothes. One brand in particular, DKNY, wants to see them on her so badly that it tapped Ora to be the face of its Resort and Spring 2014 campaigns.

Here’s UK singer/songwriter Lily Allen, heading in to do some press for her snarky, satirical new single “Hard Out Here” on BBC Radio 1. She’s carrying a Givenchy Mini Lucrezia Snakeskin Duffel Bag in lieu of her usual Chanel picks and wearing the Christian Louboutin Leopard Daffodile Pumps. You can get Lily’s bag in “Pearl Grey” leather for $2,595 at Barneys.
My 90s heroine Claire Danes was recently spotted walking her adorable dog WeeGee in Soho, NYC with a Prada Saffiano Cuir Open Promenade Bag and a diaper bag of unknown origin. Her hat seems totally appropriate for the utterly dreary weather we experienced in NYC this weekend; unfortunately it didn’t help disguise her from the paps at all. Claire is a long-time Prada loyalist, she’s been wearing/carrying Prada for as long as I’ve been reading glossy fashion mags.
Paps recently caught up with Kim Kardashian on her way into the Heritage Auctions offices in Beverly Hills, carrying a bag we’re calling the Bottega Veneta Crocodile Shoulder Bag. This exotic bag fits in nicely with the rest of Kim’s high-end minimalist, post-Kanye wardrobe, but sadly, as with nearly every other bag we’ve seen on the arm of a celeb this week, it is not yet available to the public.
Actress Jaime King was recently spotted strolling around in Beverly Hills carrying an eye-catching Jason Wu Jourdan 2 Tote. It’s a new, ever-so-slightly reinvented version of Wu’s original Jourdan Tote, and it looks particularly nice in this polished leather. You can snatch up a tote just like the one seen here on Jaime’s arm for $1,895 at Nordstrom.
Jaime King is an actress some of you may remember from several big-budget action movies that came out in the early oughts.
Sarah Jessica Parker was recently spotted out and about with a few pals in NYC, wearing a totally weather-appropriate puffy parka, just like the rest of her clan (it has been FRIGID in NYC for the past day or two), and carrying a Fendi Selleria Adele Bag customized with her initials. Yes, SJP is actually carrying a bag that says “SJP.” You can’t see it, but my head is currently exploding.
Love her or hate her, there are few people better at forcing their way into the public discourse right now than Miley Cyrus. The Disney-tween-superstar-turned-America’s-half-naked-twerking-princess has done quite the complete job making sure our eyes and ears can’t miss her right now, and with a fall record release schedule packed full of high-profile albums from people like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, it’s Miley who’s winning the media game, a fact you have to admit even if you’d like to see her sent into orbit.
Kate Upton was recently spotted at the arrivals gate at LAX carrying a classic Chanel Cerf Tote. This particularly oversized version of the Cerf Tote seems to make an exceptionally good carry-on for a celeb on the go. Kate also seems to be quite partial to this particular shade of indigo blue – we spotted her with a gorgeous croc Celine bag a few months ago that was the exact same shade!
We’ve featured Lady Gaga on PB thrice in the last few weeks, in three outfits that were worlds apart from each other (as is her style), and yet two had something in common: Versace. Here’s Gaga coming out of the Sirius Satellite Radio offices in NYC after doing a little promo for her forthcoming album (which seems like it’s been forthcoming for 100 years), channeling Jodie Foster’s character from Taxi Driver.
Sarah Jessica Parker was recently spotted walking in the West Village in NYC (where she lives and is constantly haunted by paps) carrying a lovely tan and white colorblock Michael Kors Large Miranda Tote. At first I thought this bag might be some new, oversized version of the Miranda, but then I remembered how petite SJP is – she’s not just slender, she’s tiny in a general way.
