Ankle boots have never seemed less relevant than they do this week. High-heeled over-the-knee and even thigh-high boots were both extremely popular picks for Kardashians prowling around LA and UK celebs hitting the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards in London.
Our first celeb bag round-up of the week features a LOT of basic black bags, but thankfully there are enough exciting new reiterations of some of your old favorites to whet any bag lover’s metaphorical appetite.
Miley Cyrus was recently spotted leaving the 100 Club in London, carrying a Valentino Neon Camouflage Rockstud Tote. I suppose she’s now fully recuperated from exhaustion, or a bad reaction to antibiotics, or whatever they’re blaming her recent hospital stint on this week.
Love her or hate her, there are few people better at forcing their way into the public discourse right now than Miley Cyrus. The Disney-tween-superstar-turned-America’s-half-naked-twerking-princess has done quite the complete job making sure our eyes and ears can’t miss her right now, and with a fall record release schedule packed full of high-profile albums from people like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, it’s Miley who’s winning the media game, a fact you have to admit even if you’d like to see her sent into orbit.
What can we say about Miley Cyrus that hasn’t already been said? This girl has been sized up and down from every possible political/social/cultural angle in the last two weeks, but at least she can keep smiling, I guess?
Miley Cyrus continues to express her undying love for leather attire and Chanel bags…and her fiance, I guess. Here she is attending the Paranoia movie premiere with a chic, black and white Chanel Boy Bag on one arm, and Liam Hemsworth on the other.
Here’s Miley Cyrus and her crew in the UK, hiding in their limo from an impending London paparazzi invasion. Miley is wielding a mirrored gold Celine Classic Box Bag, and her very surprised looking make-up artist seems to have a quilted Chanel bag in her lap, which she has not yet utilized as a weapon.
Here’s Miley Cyrus on her way to a photo shoot in NYC, sporting a pretty typical Miley get-up and carrying a well-loved black Chanel Quilted Backpack. Her dedication to leather-on-leather is admirable here, mainly because it is fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk HOT in NYC this week.
Miley Cyrus has been a busy little bee as of late, buzzing from press gig to Cosmopolitan cover party to New York Fashion Week show. Here she is in NYC rocking a bowler hat, a LOT of beaded fringe and a Versace Signature Tote.
Happy day-before-Thanksgiving, Americans! Happy Wednesday, everybody else! Because Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday this (and every other) year, we won’t be having a new The Many Bags of… feature tomorrow. What we have for you today, though, is an easy cheat sheet for those of you who are new to our celebrity handbag lookbooks and want to catch up today instead of pretending to work before it’s time for a couple of days off.
I guess the first question I should ask before we delve into The Many Bags of Miley Cyrus is, do you like her new haircut? I do, but I’ve had an intense affection for Miley ever since she started to rebel a bit against her Disney Tween Queen image and wear combat boots and Rick Owens and lots of spikes and skulls, so I might be biased.
