Dorothy Hamill carries a white Prada Saffiano Luxe Tote to an after-party for "Dancing with the Stars" (5)

Here’s Dorothy Hamill (yes, the 1976 Olympic champ), heading into a Dancing with the Stars after-party in LA with her Prada Saffiano Lux Tote. She withdrew herself from the competition early on in the season because of an injury, but apparently self-elimination doesn’t keep you off the after-party guest list.

Prada Fall 2013 Handbags  (13)

My feelings about any Prada collection are complicated. I know that I’ll love what Miuccia Prada sends down the runway, with few exceptions, but I also know that the bags are almost sure to underwhelm me. (Again, with few exceptions.) That was exactly the case with Prada Fall 2013 – both the clothes and the feel of the show were exceptional; a bravura performance from one of the generation’s great masters, doing what she does best.

Alyson Hannigan and family go to a party in Venice Beach

Here’s How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan headed to a party with her fam in Venice Beach. Alyson’s carrying the Prada Madras Woven Leather Top Handle Satchel, available at Neiman Marcus for $2,895. Even though this particular satchel is from Prada’s Fall 2011 collection, I still find it has a definite resort/beach bag vibe.

Prada-Printed-Saffiano-Tote

Anyone who collects anything knows what it feels like to let a particularly wonderful piece slip through his or her fingers and regret it for years afterward; no matter if the objects of your affection are coins or stamps or handbags, the thoughts of what could have been are, to put it bluntly, a major bummer.

Prada Spring 2013

Prada’s new collections are always among the first to arrive at online retailers for pre-order. The schedule has become so consistent that to me, the sight of saffiano leather and lean, structured totes feels similar to seeing that first red-breasted robin of spring, only more expensive.

Amanda Seyfried Seen Leaving Claridges Hotel

Amanda Seyfried was in London last week for the world premiere of her upcoming flick, the long-awaited movie adaptation of Les Mis. Here she is dashing out to a waiting car outside the uber-posh Claridge’s Hotel, carrying a Prada Spazzolato Top Handle Bag.

Prada Saffiano Parabole Bag

Prada is one of my absolute favorite labels for a lot of different reasons: Miuccia lets her intellectual side shine through her clothes, the brand always feels ahead of the curve, the shoes are to-die-for good. Mostly, though, I appreciate how well the brand mines both ends of the aesthetic spectrum, from simple to ornate, and still keeps its handbag line looking unmistakably Prada.

Miranda Kerr out in a tight cream dress and light blue Prada hand bag

There are women that make us feel a tad insecure because they were born prettier than us, work out more than us, dress better than us or make more money than us – and then there’s Miranda Kerr, who does all four simultaneously with utmost finesse!

Prada-Saffiano-Tote

Two weeks ago, we saw the debut of the Prada Spring 2013 handbag collection, where Muiccia Prada put on a handbag showcase with lots of eccentrism. You name it, it was featured on her handbags: studs, fur, and flower prints just to name a few.

Amanda Seyfried wears and carries Prada

The old saying goes that when you’re in Rome, you should do as the Romans. Well, when you’re in Paris going to a Miu Miu show, you should probably do as the Miuccia fangirls do and get decked out in Prada, right?
