Who Carried It Better: Miranda Kerr vs. Jessica Alba with a Christian Louboutin Marquise Clutch at the Met Gala

It should surprise exactly no one that Christian Louboutin was well-represented on the 2013 Met Gala red carpet. Even for celebs who punted on the event’s punk theme (and there were a lot of them who didn’t exactly go for the gusto), adding a pair of Louboutin’s many spiked and studded heels or toting one of his various sharp-edged clutches was a quick way to give a nod to the punk exhibit without actually having to take too many risks or commit to a full look, which is the route that both Miranda Kerr and Jessica Alba went with their Christian Louboutin Marquise Spiked Clutches.

Bethenny Frankel carries a black leather Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Shoulder Bag in NYC (5)

Former Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel was recently spotted carrying a Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Shoulder Bag while schlubbing through puddles in NYC. I don’t particularly love Bethenny’s ensemble here, for reasons you can probably guess, but I’ll take a fab, bow-adorned Christian Louboutin bag over a pair of Louboutin’s fab-but-foot-slaying heels any day.

Lis Vanderpump carries a gold Alexander McQueen Whipstitched Tote while scouting a new restaurant location in West Hollywood (5)

Before she was a Dancing With the Stars castmate or a two-time Bravo reality star, Lisa Vanderpump (along with her husband Ken Todd) was simply a humble restauranteur…successful enough to live in a palatial Beverly Hills mansion. Here are Lisa and Ken scouting a location for a new restaurant in West Hollywood.

Jessica Alba carries a Christian Louboutin Farida Snakeskin Shopping Tote at JFK Airport in NYC (5)

Everyone knows that your choice of travel bags is key to the imminent success or failure of your trip. Jessica Alba seems to have chosen well here, topping her hardcase luggage with a Christian Louboutin Farida Snakeskin Shopping Tote. (It’s hard to be incognito at JFK when you’re traveling with something as conspicuous as Christian Louboutin.) If snakeskin isn’t your bag (double entendre), you can buy our favorite version of the Farida – this muted grey and neon pink colorway – at Net-A-Porter for $2,195.

It’s been quite a while since we’ve had an occasion to talk about Christian Louboutin’s handbags. While not nearly as omnipresent as his platform pumps, the bags do have their own unique appeal. (No bright red bottoms though, just bright red lining.

Christian Louboutin has been working hard to bring the awareness of its handbag collections up to par with its world-famous shoes, and the line is well on its way.

Kyle Minogue Christian Louboutin

If you know Kylie Minogue, then you know that she takes her accessories, especially her shoes, very seriously. At barely five feet tall, the globally megafamous pop star likes to get an extra lift from high heels, no matter what the occasion.

Christian-Louboutin-Spiked-Clutch

This clutch is just another example of my ever-growing love for all things Louboutin. Christian Louboutin has a knack for taking ordinary accessories and loading them with details and embellishments to make them unlike others on the market. What I personally love about Louboutin is you never know what concoction he will create.

This weekend, we were busy ending summer and falling straight for fall. These lovely Louboutin Miss Zora Necklace Boots make for a great companion.

Happy Labor Day, hope your summer was as amazing as ours!

Emma Roberts Christian Louboutin Bag

I’ve got a little crush on Emma Roberts. I’ve seen her at quite a few events and she always seems approachable and like an overall nice girl, the kind of girl with whom you’d like to have lunch and go shopping.
