If you like weird pop culture things, you’re probably eagerly anticipating the release of Spring Breakers, a film directed by Harmony Korine that stars people as varied as Disney princess Selena Gomez and Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane (in his cinematic debut, no less). I happen to love weird pop culture things, so to celebrate the film, we’re going to take a look at the handbag collection of Vanessa Hudgens, who plays one of Gomez’s debauched friends in film.

Here’s Victoria Secret Angel and generalized supermodel Candice Swanepoel, trying to dodge a few overly friendly advances from fans and paparazzos while carrying a beige Chloe Sally Bag at the airport in LA. Nice try, Candice – you can do your best to keep a low profile by wearing designer shades and a beanie, but you’re still a gorgeous super model who people can spot from a mile away.
On one hand, no one looks more dour in paparazzi photos than Reese Witherspoon; on the other hand, they do tend to follow her inside fro-yo shops, which is probably irritating. Here’s a less-than-pleased-looking Reese carrying an especially pleasing tan Mulberry Tassel Bag during a quick yogurt stop in Hollywood. Hardcore Mulberry fans will notice that this bag is basically the Mulberry Alexa, but with massive tassels.
Here’s Cheryl Burke, dance partner to the stars, carrying an eye-popping bright red Valentino Rockstud Dome Satchel at The Grove in LA. Cheryl was on her way to a taping of Extra, where she undoubtedly plugged Dancing With The Stars, now in its 16th season.
You’ve probably noticed our SLIGHT obsession with everything Valentino rockstud here on PurseBlog – so as you can imagine, we’re all big fans of this lady-like, yet sublimely rock-n-roll bag.
Last week, we spotlighted what celebrities and fashion people were carrying to attend the Chanel Fall 2013 show (shocker: lots of Chanel), but its far from the only show that attracts stars and their handbags at Paris Fashion Week. From Stella McCartney to Louis Vuitton, American, European and Asian celebs carried a ton of envy-inducing bags all over Paris in the past week.
Here’s Lea Michele trawling around in NYC, trying to look bashful about being such a big deal. I hate to sell her short here (though I will say she does look fab in neutrals), but I really do have to reserve all my valuable text space for her adorable little Givenchy Mini Pandora Bag! The Pandora is still one of my favorite designer bags currently on the market, but if one were to lodge a complaint against it, I suppose it might be that in its large and medium-sized variations, it is a tad conspicuous, what with its unusual tilted shape and all.
The stars flooded Paris airports this week on their way to Paris Fashion Week, and the French paparazzos are ready and waiting. Here’s actress/the Olsen twins’ little sis Elizabeth Olsen just after landing in Roissy Airport. On her right shoulder, you’ll notice she’s carrying a chic, black Alexander McQueen Heroine Shoulder Bag, and she also seems to have a Chanel Large Quilted Tote in tow.
Brace yourself, kids: Nicky Hilton’s bag collection is about to make your head explode. You should probably ask friends and loved ones to move out of your immediate vicinity, lest they get any on them. If you don’t heed that warning, well, it’s not my fault. None of this is my fault. It’s all Ms. Hilton’s. I’m just a middle man.
Tonight Season 2 of It’s a Brad Brad World kicks off on Bravo, but despite all the hubbub over the new season, the super vivacious Brad Goreski told me he’s not tired; he’s just getting started. Brad has quickly become a fixture in the fashion industry, first known for his previous role as Rachel Zoe’s style director. Even though some people might still associate him with his old boss, it seems as though Brad’s career is expanding by the moment (and we couldn’t be happier.)
“I love being on TV and having the TV show, but there are all the other months of my life where I continue working.”
I had the opportunity to chat with Brad about his show, his life and anything else that came to mind, and the spunky and hunky Brad was just as fun, personable and open as he seems on TV.
January Jones was recently spotted at Roissy Airport in Paris, most likely en route to a show at Paris Fashion Week, carrying a Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel. The Lucrezia is a new bag for Spring 2013, and Givenchy has gone out of its way to get it in the hands of a carefully curated selection of fashionable starlets. We introduced you to the Givenchy Lucrezia and its many different colorways in early January, and happily, it looks like nearly all of them are still available at Barney’s for $2,140 and up (including the black nappa lambskin version seen here).
