Celebs stepped out with some truly unusual bag choices this week. There were minis galore, fetching marble-effect clutches from Edie Parker, exotic pouchettes from Hermès and a Chloé bag that is certain to give you vivid flashbacks of the mid-aughts.
This seems like an especially flashy celeb handbag roundup, mostly because so many people carried multi-thousand dollar handbags to LAX, PCW, or various international summer soirees. And, of course, several of them did so while on the arms of their significant others or spouses, who all happen to have multi-million dollar net worths.
We are all in for a treat today, because it’s Paris Couture Week and our photo service is flooded with photos of the celebs that really matter: the fashion editors, of course. Maybe Esther Quek isn’t a household name yet (or as much of a household name as an Anna Dello Russo might be), but you’re going to want to start paying attention to what she has to wear and what she has to say.
Couture Week runs on a different schedule than the regular fashion seasons. Because clients order directly from the brands and designers don’t need extra time to collect orders from and ship stock to retailers, you don’t get the six-month lead time between the show and the season in which the clothing is intended to be worn.
Paris Couture Week is upon us, which means celebs are flocking to Charles de Gaulle en route to runways and front rows all over town. This week, the Givenchy Lucrezia Bag is especially popular with Paris Couture Week attendees.
Céline Dion seems like she has a great sense of humor. She’s also got the voice of an angel, sure, but over the arc of her fame, she’s always seemed happy, funny, sometimes even goofy–like she loves her fans and feels lucky and finds this whole fame thing sorta kooky.
Readers, we have failed you. Beyoncé stepped out with a handbag last week, and we had absolutely no idea what it was. Knowing Bey, it could be anything. Her handbag preferences are all over the place.
In my last shoe-centric post about Chrissy Teigen, I pointed out several tricks supermodels use to look perma-fashionable. This exploration of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s designer shoe collection will give you even more ideas, such as “always wear suede.” It is now appropriate for all seasons, and it makes you look like you are one suede sandal-bootied-step ahead of everyone else.
It was around the time I saw Magic Mike XXL last year that I began to think we, as a society, might not be giving Jada Pinkett Smith her due. She drove home that point to me with a bravura trip through Paris Fashion Week a few months ago, and since then, I’ve taken note whenever I see her pop up in our photo service.
