Here’s Princess Eugenie (daughter of the UK’s Prince Andrew), shopping in the East Village with a Mulberry Alexa Satchel. She has apparently expatriated to NYC to work for an auction company, but she’s still repping for British designers with a Mulberry bag.
IT’S OPRAH! Oprah has been making the press rounds over the past week, giving interviews to networks and magazines which she does not own willy-nilly, which is rare for Oprah. Here she is leaving the CBS Morning Show studios, where she was promoting her new movie, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, carrying a lovely white leather Mulberry Willow Tote.
English model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was recently photographed at the airport in LA carrying a cheetah Mulberry Del Rey Animal Print Bag. (You’ve definitely seen Rosie in Victoria’s Secret lingerie, and you might’ve seen her in Transformers 3, but I’m kind of hoping you didn’t.) Young British celebs love their Mulberry, which is of course based in London, like so many of my other fave designer brands.
On one hand, no one looks more dour in paparazzi photos than Reese Witherspoon; on the other hand, they do tend to follow her inside fro-yo shops, which is probably irritating. Here’s a less-than-pleased-looking Reese carrying an especially pleasing tan Mulberry Tassel Bag during a quick yogurt stop in Hollywood.
Unless you’re recently coupled or engaged, Valentine’s Day probably isn’t your favorite day of all days (and even then, most young women I know approach it with dread), but beyond the opportunity to buy half-priced chocolates at the drug store the day after, perhaps there’s something to all of this V-Day hubbub after all.
Fashion is perhaps more obsessed with ad campaigns than any industry outside of advertising itself. If you love a particular brand, it’s fun to get a peek into how the brand’s creative team envisions the clothes in context, and the best ads can provide great aesthetic inspiration for everything from personal styling to home decor to vacation planning.
