Brands know what they’re doing when they use quilted leather. They know the risks, and they take them anyway. Valentino is the most recent big name to make a foray into quilted leather bags with its brand new Valentino Rockstud Spike Bag.
Exciting new summer handbag trends are emerging this week, and celebs’ designer selections are all over the place (in a good way). Also, as you’ve obviously gathered, Beyoncé makes an appearance, as well as several more of our favorite supermodels and/or television personalities, and they have all chosen to reward us for our patience and admiration with some extremely colorful wardrobe and hair choices.
Here are things I have learned about this year’s Cannes Film Festival solely by reading internet headlines: People can’t avoid questions about Woody Allen. Kristen Stewart’s movie got booed, but also got a standing ovation. Blake Lively made a booty-centric comment that has people mildly enraged.
I can’t say anything about Mondays that a thousand memes haven’t already said for me, but I know this: you are probably sitting at your desk right now, in desperate need of distraction. Well, discreetly click right this way, ladies and gentlemen.
By and large, the looks at Monday night’s tech-themed 2016 Met Gala were a little bit boring (the world has now been emptied of silver sequins and beads because they were all on the Upper East Side last night), but there was one very bright spot (for us, anyway): tons of celebrities carried interesting clutches.
I’m a bit biased, but I think all of the celebs featured herein are influential, albeit some of them only in fashion. In a larger sense, only one has made a lasting cultural impact that propelled her onto this year’s Time 100 list, and only one has the clout to bring one of her favorite designers along to the gala as her escort.
Do you ever get worried for the health of people who have to go to all four fashion weeks every season? I do. It’s tiring enough to cover the whole circus from the comfort of my own home; I can’t imagine trying to join it and traipse around the globe for a month.
This is a serious question: how many “Kendall + Kylie” fashion lines are the Jenners legally allowed to vend at the same time? I ask because we’re up to three. That being said, their new line of shoes, apparel and accessories will probably be far more appealing to those who would never deign to enter a PacSun or Topshop.
Our photo service runneth over with fantastic handbag (and designer shoe) pics from this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards. (By the way, you guys are checking out our weekly celebrity designer shoe round-ups, yes? They are also penned by yours truly.) The CCAs are a slightly more low-key affair than your Golden Globes or Oscars, and historically, they’ve been bigger on industry cred than Hollywood glamour.
