New York Fashion Week has come and gone, but we’re not done with it just yet. Below, we’ve assembled dozens of photos of the week’s most notable bags on the most notable arms, all for your viewing pleasure. There’s inspiration to spare.
Around the PurseBlog offices, we spend an inordinate amount of time poring over photos of celebs and their favorite handbags, and over time, one thing has become apparent: famous people really, really love Chanel bags. Non-famous people do too, of course, but those photos are harder to come by.
Here’s Rihanna, hanging out courtside with BFF Melissa Forde at the Clippers NBA playoff game at the Staples Center in LA. RiRi is matching her pink wig to her pink Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, which begs the question, which came first?
Summer is coming to a close, which is terrible for a number of reasons – first and foremost because I only just found a swimsuit I actually like a mere two weeks ago. But also, your opportunities for music festival hooliganism, beach frolicking, and Hamptons weekend getaways are all about to vanish, like so many autumn leaves.
Before we move forward, you should all know that I have become an irrational Rihanna fangirl. Not of her music, necessarily – I don’t own any of her albums – but of Rihanna as a character in the media. I love that she wears (and generally pulls off) outrageous things, I love how well she mixes high fashion and hip hop style, I love that she’s not afraid to wear things that will surely bring her plenty of criticism.
Here’s Rihanna, leaving a club in London whilst carrying a Stella McCartney Holographic Clutch. This bag was from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2013 collection, so it’s no longer available online, tragically. As with all Stella McCartney bags, the leather here is faux, but in this case, works to the bag’s advantage, as the holographic effect is much stronger than what you’d usually see on a leather bag.
Love her or not, Rihanna seems to be on all of our screens at all times. The singer makes waves for everything from her musical career to her personal life to her fashion sense, and we are there to follow along.
Here’s Rihanna, keeping her gorgeous, ruby red Celine Rolled Trio Clutch close in NYC. (She’s carrying it unrolled here.) This bag is from Celine’s Summer 2013 collection, which you can see in its entirety in “The Bags of Celine Summer 2013″.
There are so many magazines that I peruse that have an ongoing feature on how celebrities are just like us. You know, they eat food, they go places, they have families. But typically, all that I think from those silly features is they are like “us” in that they are human, but their lives are quite different.
