Plus: Calvin Klein handbags just had a big moment
For a while, Calvin Klein's appeal was waning as the brand's licensing business slapped the name on anything for a price. (My grandma was ecstatic to find "real" Calvin Klein apparel at Sam's Club last year, for example.) But the brand's logo underwear started picking up steam a couple seasons ago, and now that Raf Simons has taken over, they are making moves towards re-establishing themselves with the fashion set, and frankly it seems to be happening rather quickly. Will their name disappear from T.J. Maxx racks entirely in the next few years? Probably not, but something very interesting is afoot here. Can Rihanna and my grandma share a space in fashion?
Alessandra Ambrosio has arrived in Milan for FW, and she's brought her Louis Vuitton Neonoe Bag with her. If you're like "what's the Neonoe?" suffice it to say, it's Louis Vuitton's most underrated design. Shop the Louis Vuitton Neonoe via Louis Vuitton ($1,390)
Moving down the list of celebrity Ashleys alphabetically, we have Ashley Tisdale, shopping in West Hollywood with her Givenchy Pandora Box Bag. Shop the Givenchy Pandora Box Bag via Net-a-Porter ($1,995)
Dita Von Teese
We have a double dose of the Simpsons this week--here's Jessica Simpson, leaving Craig's at 2 a.m. with her husband and her Valentino Rockstud Trapeze Tote. BUSTED. Shop the Valentino Rockstud Trapeze Tote via Neiman Marcus ($2,695)
Kirsten Dunst is on the press trail to promote her new movie Woodshock, and she's brought a charming Salvatore Ferragamo Vara Bag along for her rounds. She's seen here making her way to an appearance on Kimmel. Shop the Salvatore Ferragamo Vara Bag via Shopbop ($1,190)
Rihanna celebrated the London launch of Fenty Beauty at Harvey Nichols earlier this week, and she brought a Calvin Klein Dome Evening Bag along for the occasion. This is part of the brand's first foray back into handbags under the direction of Raf Simons.
Finally, we have Sofia Richie, heading to lunch at La Conversation in West Hollywood with an exotic Jimmy Choo Lockett Bag. It can't possibly be that cold in West Hollywood yet, Sofia. Shop the Jimmy Choo Python Lockett Bag via Jimmy Choo ($2,695)
