She sings a little, she acts a little and for some reason she’s been tapped as the new host for the soon-to-be-rebooted America’s Next Top Model on VH1, despite her minimal modeling credentials. Rita Ora is suddenly EVERYWHERE.
It’s that time of the week again: bag deals! Now, as every Friday morning, we’re here to bring you over a dozen of the best discounted designer bags available on the Internet right now (if you hurry, anyway).
We warned you at the beginning of March that embellished, statement-making straps were a nascent trend, and now the world’s biggest luxury brand has lent the look its seal of approval. Louis Vuitton just launched a line of sold-separately Bandoulière Straps, and compared to brands of comparable caliber, they’re actually pretty well priced.
For a group of women with whom designers are often extremely generous, supermodels tend to be pretty loyal when it comes to their bags. For example: Miranda Kerr can’t put down her Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag, Gigi Hadid is obsessed with her Versace Palazzo Empire Bag and Chrissy Teigen loves her Givenchy Antigona.
When I think of a bag I’d call a “best bet,” it’s a useful, simple design that could fit into a lot of different women’s lives and that comes at a reasonable price for what you get.
“The best” is a very particular phrase. People use it in place of “my favorite” all the time, perhaps because we always want to believe that the things we prefer are also objectively valuable and worth appreciating, but its literal meaning is a little more narrow than that.
We gather a lot of information just be scrolling our Instagram feed. Between our followers and our industry friends, we can easily identify what bags are most-wanted among the social media set. In recent weeks, we’ve a closer look at reigning favorites like Louis Vuitton and Dior, and this week our Instagram feed is telling us that Saint Laurent bags should also be added to the list.
Slowly but surely, Céline has started putting more information about its seasonal handbag on its website. Every season, the brand gives shoppers a few more bags, a few more prices, a few more colors and leathers—it’s a good time to be a shopper in search of the perfect Céline.
Fall is fast approaching, and perhaps for that very reason, celebs are getting a little adventurous with their handbag choices. This roundup is pretty evenly split between classic black leather bags from Fendi, Chanel and The Row that could survive any season, as well as bling-tastic selections from Miu Miu, Bulgari and others that are very now.
In many ways, Dior was my big introduction to high-end beauty products. When I was a kid, I fell in love with the brand’s Hypnotic Poison perfume while browsing my mom’s fashion magazines, and once I was old enough to afford my own fancy makeup, I’d drive myself the hour and a half back to Atlanta from my college town to visit the Dior beauty counter at my favorite mall.
