A lot of this week’s celeb handbag picks just make you want to reach out and touch them. But, we strongly advise against that. There’s no telling what Iggy Azalea will do if you randomly walk up and stroke her Fendi bag.
This week, everyone from Jessica Alba to Catherine Zeta-Jones was snapped at the airport, and they were ALL carrying handbags valued in excess of $2K. Hey, it’s awards season, and you can’t let TSA catch you with anything reasonably affordable whilst you’re zipping in from Paris Couture Week or exotic destinations unknown, you know?
Not all designers are as liberal with their celeb freebies as others, and this sometimes makes it hard to assess the true success of any given designer style. On the one hand, we can be sure that the celebs who do carry these bags do so because they genuinely like them, but on the other hand, it’s hard to know how many celebrities even shop for themselves, even when they seem to do little else.
It seems that celebrities have already begun their deep holiday hibernation. The two weeks surrounding Christmas and New Year’s tend to be a no-promo zone for the vast majority of celebrities, though the myriad Star Wars premieres across the globe are giving us a little something to go on this year.
Platform sandals are back,and they are taking off rather quickly, so bear that in mind as you make your post-holiday shoe purchases. Charlotte Olympia has already taken a quick lead on the platform front, and one of her latest styles is a huge hit with celebs this week (as well as with yours truly.) In other news, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out today, and whether that excites you or not, the movie’s LA premiere has provided us with some of our best shoes of the week; I imagine the subsequent international Star Wars premieres will continue to deliver on both the bag and shoe front.
A certain new style from Valentino is still cresting on its wave of recent popularity, and a few celebs continue to surprise us with their unexpected bag choices. In other news, Lady Gaga wore an outfit in public that was really only a LITTLE weird, and a few celebs accessorized their Halloween costumes with high-end handbags, of course.
