As you’re probably aware, the Cannes Film Festival is happening right now, and celebs are headed to France with all their best handbags, except for the ones that aren’t. But if you’re an actress with substantial movie industry cred (or a supermodel with absolutely zero) traipsing through LAX this week, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll make an appearance on the red carpet at Cannes.
Jessica Alba is much more public about spending time with her family than other celebs, and she seems oddly undeterred by paparazzi attention. She brunches, she does playdates, she promotes The Honest Company, she makes office and juice runs and she seems generally content to live out her life in the public eye.
A very funny friend of mine once referred to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as a “self-esteem serial killer,” and although I’ve never been the type to proactively hold myself to the beauty standards of those who are beautiful for a living, I have to admit that she kind of had a point.
Honestly, Sarah Jessica Parker‘s enthusiasm for her own line of shoes makes me like her shoes a lot more. Celebs are frequently quick to lend their name to some fashion line for the right amount of cachiche, and while the brands who foot the bill are glad to have you think those celebs were deeply involved in every aspect of the design process, there’s seldom evidence that they were on-hand to give feedback for more than 45 minutes total.
As we have been all week, we’re celebrating the arrival of Mother’s Day this Sunday with a look at the intersection of moms and their beloved handbags. For the past two years, we’ve taken a deep dive into celebrity moms and the bags they use while spending time with their families, and today, we’re here to do exactly that again.
The Met Gala always swings back and forth between being the best red carpet of the year or, at least, the most interesting red carpet of the year. Every celeb you know and love is there (as well as a few you’d totally forgotten about), and as an added bonus, there’s no four-hour award show attached that you feel like have you have to sit through afterward.
By and large, the looks at Monday night’s tech-themed 2016 Met Gala were a little bit boring (the world has now been emptied of silver sequins and beads because they were all on the Upper East Side last night), but there was one very bright spot (for us, anyway): tons of celebrities carried interesting clutches.
I’m a bit biased, but I think all of the celebs featured herein are influential, albeit some of them only in fashion. In a larger sense, only one has made a lasting cultural impact that propelled her onto this year’s Time 100 list, and only one has the clout to bring one of her favorite designers along to the gala as her escort.
