The Tod’s Wave Bag continues to gain steam this week, while a few other new celeb bag picks are all set to join the crop of this season’s most highly coveted. That’s all business as usual, of course; what’s perhaps more curious about this crop of celeb snaps is how many celebrities happened to grab lunch or dinner with other celebrities last week.
It’s a strange day at my virtual news desk when an indie musician has the nicest, newest Chanel bag in our entire celebrity handbag roundup. We’re featuring all of our usual Real Housewives, ex-Real Housewives, TV personalities and pop starlets, and yet, some of these high-end handbag selections have frankly seen better days.
Kerry Washington has carved out a space for herself in the fashion world using the pointy heel of a limited-edition Louboutin. She wears an insane amount of rare (and rarely seen again) Loubs in her day to day life, and in my own fantasy world, the brand promptly retires many of the styles afterwards, because how can you top Olivia Pope?
Lupita Nyong’o’s rise to fame is one of the best things that’s happened to celebrity fashion-watchers in years. When she first caught the public’s attention during her Oscar run for 2013’s 12 Years a Slave, she established herself as someone who has a keen sense for color, supports designers both big and small and takes fashion risks that almost always pay off.
Here’s something I don’t get to wax on about nearly enough for my liking: Netflix celebrities. If you’re a fellow cord-cutter, you’re probably aware that a well-received Netflix series can quietly boost the celebrity profile of actors and actresses that have had a harder time finding success on network television, who haven’t worked in a while (by choice or not) or who are way more popular across the pond.
Earlier this week, Selena Gomez quietly became the most popular person on Instagram, surpassing even her BFF Taylor Swift. Once the media latched on to this factoid, however, it was much less quiet. In fact, Selena has actually gained an additional 2 million followers since the news broke, leaving her ex, Justin Bieber, lagging almost 10 million followers behind.
Do you ever sit back and think how lucky we are to have Jennifer Lopez? She sings, she dances, she acts, she shows up on near-constant red carpets looking incredible–what a bounty. Jennifer always has a bunch of projects in the works, which keeps a steady stream of paparazzi images coming, and lately, we’ve noticed even more than normal.
Selena Gomez wins our handbag exclusivity contest this week (because it’s always a contest) with a logo’d Louis Vuitton satchel that’s hot off the Paris runway. Selena’s in a weird limbo with Louis Vuitton: she carries the brand’s bags frequently and goes to their shows, but unlike most of LV’s celeb faces, she’s never been in one of the company’s campaigns.
