Taylor Swift is not someone who pops up on PB very frequently, despite the fact that she does lay claim to a respectable designer bag stash. And yet, here’s Taylor leaving the gym in West Hollywood carrying a dark green Christian Louboutin Farida Tote – a bag I personally think is pretty underrated, though I definitely prefer the Farida in its multi-tone variations.
I’ve long been a proponent of Christian Louboutin’s small but underrated bag line. Louboutin’s bags have many of the same charms of his shoes – edgy detailing, that signature pop of red – and unlike his shoes, there’s no prospect of physical pain after the first hour! That being said, you probably wouldn’t want to trip down a flight of stairs with Olivia Wilde’s mixed metal Christian Louboutin Panettone Spiked Shopper Tote.
Last night, sometimes totally unexpected happen: the Real Housewives of Orange County went someplace cold. Canada, to be exact, after a quick explanation that Lydia is Canadian so they all must go to Canada. Yes, that was the entire explanation for the big group vacation, and as far as I can remember, the first time the excursion was even mentioned was approximately 30 seconds before they all boarded the limo for the airport.
Here’s Sandra Bullock, being ushered out of a restaurant in London by a large entourage acting as human buffer zone between Sandra and her overzealous English fans/paparazzi. Sandra is currently in the UK promoting her new movie with Melissa McCarthy, The Heat. Her bag is the super luxe, hand-painted Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Python Bag, available for $3,595 at Net-a-Porter.
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.
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. You can currently pick up the red and grey colorway of this bag for $1,695 at Net-a-Porter.
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.
I think that Rue La La may have just hit the mother lode. Today’s sale features discount Christian Louboutin shoes (there are a few bags too!) and ladies, it’s unbelievable. Think basic black styles that never go on sale, plus seasonal merchandise you might have missed out on. There are a handful of items from the coveted spike collection, too. I won’t waste any more of your time – get on over to Rue La La when the sale begins at 11 AM EST and try your hand at scoring some brand new Louboutins.
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. Which was definitely an oversight on someone’s part, I think.) Here’s actress Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s Shameless and the upcoming flick Beautiful Creatures, shopping in West Hollywood with her burgundy and black Christian Louboutin Farida Tote.
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. The brand has transitioned well, bringing Louboutin’s signature irreverence to all of its accessories, and as a result, the brand’s handbag following continues to grow. I love a red-soled shoe, but I’ve been finding myself loving Louboutin’s bags lately as well.
