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.
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.
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.
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.
