Celebs Show Off Colorful Carries From Bottega Veneta and Hermès

Plus, a celeb debut of the new Balenciaga Lindsay bag


August tends to be a quiet month for celebs and us regular folk in New York and beyond too. In some parts of the US, school kicks off, while in other places, August signals that the end of summer is near and it’s time to get in those last-minute vacations and trips to the beach.

Celebs are just like us, and it’s not all that uncommon to see them wind down during the month of August. Last week, however, we were pleasantly surprised to still see some of our favorites out and about!

The trend of celebs carrying only neutrals died down a little this week, with a few pops of color seen throughout, and we’re not just talking about the bags! Colorful ensembles like stripes and prints were paired with neutral bags, and one daring little color queen went full throttle. Get the scoop below!

We’re checking in with the always stylish Tracee Ellis Ross, who was snapped in New York wearing baggy jeans and a striped Prada tank. She carried a bag we don’t see all that often; Alaia’s Mini Mina bag.

I’ll be honest, I had to look up who Aubrey Plaza is, but I knew she was somebody based on this power suit and Bottega Veneta Pouch combo. Turns out, she’s an actress and comedian who has done plenty of work, but many may know her for starring in Parks and Recreation.

Model and swimwear designer Candice Swanepoel attended the opening of Gekko, a Japanese-inspired steakhouse partially owned by Bad Bunny. The beauty wore Balenciaga shoes and midriff-bearing jeans. She debuted Balenciaga’s latest shoulder bag, the Lindsay Bag.

Goop boss Gwyneth Paltrow visited a friend in New York during the heatwave last week. She carried a trusty orange Evelyne Mini and looked relatively…normal, dare I say?

Fellow bag Lover Mindy Kaling wore an eye-catching colorful set on her way to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. She accessorized with a basic yet classic Chanel Wallet on Chain.

We haven’t checked in with Mrs. Osbourne in quite a bit, but when we do check in with Sharon, her bags never disappoint. Last week, she was seen in London with a Chanel Medallion Chain Belt Bag.

Sofia Vergara headed to work in LA with yet another Dior Book Tote. No one stans Dior Book Totes more than Sofia Vergara. She looked effortlessly stylish in high-waisted white linen pants and a black tank.

    All the ladies look so beautiful except Mindy K – fire her stylist for putting her in this craft project outfit

      She usually dresses beautifully but I agree that this outfit is not great.

        Yes i love her style and she has fun with her outfits but this is definitely a miss

      I so disagree. I think she looks great. I love the Movida feel of this look.

      I think she looks great. Would love to see the shoes. I would totally wear that outfit. Good colors for her.

    Are you sure that isn’t Gwyneth Paltrow’s Blythe Danner? She looks so much like her as she ages.

      Yes, It’s Gwyneth! Funnily enough, it seems she made a purse change that day – Vogue posted a photo of her wearing a different bag with the same outfit!

    Not even a Hermes bag is going to save Gwenyth’s look here.

      Right?! She’s looking rough.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. This is a very unflattering picture, for sure.

      Has it ocurred to any of you that maybe she’s reached a point where she dresses for herself and not for anyone else? These are really ageist comments implying that she has to look a certain way or god forbid, you all pile on her.

        Yes! Thank you!!

      I think this is her heavy into coastal grandma 👵 trend. I agree that it’s aging and unflattering.

      Hahaha. I’m a buyer of Haute couture. Gwneeth looks terrible here

    Gwyneth looks like a home health nurse. Sniffing her own v***gina candles must have had an unintended effect.

    I love this picture of Gwyneth — she looks like a middle aged mom dressing for comfort and I am here for it from head to toe. Mindy’s whole look is awful. I hope it’s the picture because usually her makeup is impeccable. With some of the people who have been characterized as celebrities on this blog, I refuse to believe that Aubrey Plaza is the person who gets introduced as “I had to look up who Aubrey Plaza is’.

      I’m a human being, and just like all of you who occasionally don’t know who some of the celebs are in a post, I was not familiar with Aubrey or her work. Simple as that.

      1. Jaime Avatar

        I think the title was fine, considering you have not featured her before. And moving forward you wouldn’t say that to introduce her.

      2. Fabuleux Avatar

        I usually don’t know anyone on the “celebs” list aside from the big names. 🤣

    I like Mindy’s outfit and Tayshia’s dress. I honestly thought Gwyneth was Tilda Swinton.

    had to look up Aubrey Plaza?! Wow. Well, I do the same when I have to look up so-called influencers that are featured.

    Gwyneth always has dressed frumpy
