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).
Celebrity Style and Fashion(Page 8)
Almost every brand invites celebrities to their fashion week shows, but only the savviest of brands know how to turn those celeb arrivals into a true marketing opportunity. Chanel, naturally, is among those smart companies that makes the most of their seasonal shows by turning them into the chic media events that most designers wish they could pull off. A not-insignificant part of that process is making sure that the celebs show up dressing the part, and Chanel put one of its famous bags in the hands of basically every star that made the trip to Paris to attend.
The Osbourne women don’t seem to mess around with any less than the best of Chanel bags these days. Here’s Sharon Osbourne carrying a Chanel Boy Bag with ornate gold edges outside of Madeo Beverly Hills. Sharon had just enjoyed a cozy dinner date with her pal Mezhgan Hussainy (ex-fiance of Simon Cowell), pictured at her left. Last month, we spotted her daughter Kelly with a gorgeous metallic green Chanel Classic Flap in NYC.
The talk of the town during this year’s Oscars was not some of the nominees you would assume; instead, there was quite a stir over nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. The strong-willed and highly talented youngster hit the red carpet with a memorable smile and probably the most memorable accessory of the night, her custom puppy purse, designed to look like her dog from home.
Here’s Kourtney Kardashian in Beverly Hills, rocking a striped (hot)pants suit while filming a scene for the upcoming eighth season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Her bag is a Celine Trio Bag, which is made up of three separate pouches that snap together, but can also be used separately, sans strap. Neat, huh? Prices vary a bit based on size, but you can expect to plunk down about a grand for this petite Celine creation.
When Ashley Olsen carries a bag of her own design, it isn’t exactly news; when that bag has only been spotted once before in the entirety of fashion history? Well that’s probably worth sharing, no? Here’s Ashley slinking around the airport in Paris, on her way home to New York. She’s carrying what we’ll call a The Row Fall 2013 Bicolor Runway Bag.
News broke yesterday that Lily Allen staged her first live music gig in FOUR YEARS during the Etam lingerie runway show yesterday in Paris, singing her hit single “Smile” as ladies in barely there undies paraded down the catwalk. Here she is upon her return home at the St. Pancras train station in London, juggling a Chanel Coco Cocoon Tote and a Saint Laurent Classic Duffel Bag.
If you’ve been anywhere near your Twitter account on a recent Thursday evening, you might have noticed that basically everyone on Earth watches (and loves) Scandal. I’m hesitant to admit that I’ve never seen the show, but it’s the next thing up on my catch-up list after I get done re-watching The West Wing on Netflix, which is actually a fairly appropriate progression.
It must be fun to be royalty. Princess Charlene of Monaco has been jet-setting from fashion week to fashion week all over the continent. A few weeks ago, we spotted her at the Dior Haute Couture show in Paris with a Dior Lady Dior Tote, and now here she is, headed in to the Armani Fall 2013 fashion show at Milan Fashion Week carrying an Armani Spring 2013 Runway Satchel.
Victoria’s Secret model/rock n’ roll wifey Lily Aldridge was recently spotted in NYC quite expertly matching two of THE hottest and most coveted designer pieces currently on the market – a black and leopard print Celine Luggage Tote and a pair of Chloe Susanna Booties. Pairing animal prints and gold hardware sounds insanely tacky, but a heavy-handed sprinkling of each works well with this casual outfit.
