Exciting new summer handbag trends are emerging this week, and celebs’ designer selections are all over the place (in a good way). Also, as you’ve obviously gathered, Beyoncé makes an appearance, as well as several more of our favorite supermodels and/or television personalities, and they have all chosen to reward us for our patience and admiration with some extremely colorful wardrobe and hair choices.
The gods have heard my cries and celebs have suddenly changed their lifestyle handbag-carrying habits accordingly. The endless sea of Chanel and Hermès bags has suddenly (almost) run dry (can’t speak for next week, though), and celebs are finally choosing to dine somewhere other than the same two West Hollywood eateries!
Celeb handbag picks can be tad predictable at times, and truthfully there are very few surprises here. The biggest surprise is that RHONY star Kelly Bensimon wrote a BOOK, for whatever reason. (Expanding her personal brand, most likely.) But Reese Witherspoon and vowel-adverse pop star The Weeknd both managed to intrigue us with their selections this week, plus there’s a mystery bag in play that we could use your help identifying.
Even if you weren’t aware of her in the past, you’ve probably heard a lot about Zendaya in the past year. The teenage singer/actor/model/all-around famous person has a quickly rising star in both entertainment and fashion; so much so, in fact, that Beyoncé tapped her to appear with a handful of other up-and-coming black women in the arts in her Lemonade film.
By the looks of it, Dior had quite the front row for its Cruise 2017 show at Blenheim Castle in the English countryside. Not only did attendees include actresses, models, rock royalty and actual royalty from across the globe, but basically all of them also joined the brand for a big after-party at tony Loulou’s Members Club in London later in the evening.
There were a barrage of Cruise and Resort runway shows over the holiday weekend, and many of our celeb handbag round-up usuals made their way to Rio for Louis Vuitton‘s. Not everyone headed to the runway shows, of course; some celebs stayed in town, shopped at their favorite stores and loafed around their usual haunts, just like I did.
