Dorothy Hamill is one of those names that are familiar to almost every household in America. Kardashians and Hiltons will come and go but no one will forget Hamill, or her trademark hairstyle (which is one of the most popular trends of all time.) Hamill was known as America’s Sweetheart during the winter olympics. Recently, she’s become relevant in current pop culture once again by appearing on Dancing With The Stars.
To mark a celebratory event, Dorothy carried a fabulously chic, white Prada tote with her. This exact bag in the same color has been spotted in the arms of Victoria’s Secret Supermodel Miranda Kerr many a times. It doesn’t have a long strap and doesn’t work as a shoulder bag but looks best gripped as a tote instead. In fact, this is also the best way to show it off. A gold metal Prada logo is emblazoned across the front. If you’re going to splurge, might as well show it off!
The “Matryoshka” bag, named for the Matryoshka Russian doll to represent how elegant and sophisticated CH Carolina Herrera’s designer bag is. The relaxed form and structureless look of the bag gives you so many possibilities in the way you carry it and what you use it for. Originally made with soft basswood, its now made with delicate napa leather. Since there are usually five identical Russian dolls in the set, this bag also comes in five sizes. Pretty cute concept.
Not only is Glee start Dianna Agron a fan, Kate Moss is as well. I’d say that’s pretty good company if you’re looking for a stylish handbag. Stylists often advise that the way to tell whether an animal print bag is tacky or glamorous is to look at the size of the spots. If they’re realistic instead of oversized, it passes. This one’s definitely on the classy side.
Kyle Richards is one of the most well-known Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She’s the sister of Kathy Hilton, making her the first aunt of Nicky And Paris Hilton. She’s younger than her sister and chooses to spend time partying with her nieces instead, when she’s not busy filming for her wildly popular reality series. Her daughter is also close friends (and cousin) to the Hilton siblings.
Kyle has often been spotted shopping or walking with her Chanel handbags. One of her favorites is the silver Jumbo Flap Bag. This style is very easy to carry over the shoulder and it’s roomy enough to hold your things. Kyle likes to keep her neutral colored bags for casual outings and opts for the metallic one for wild nights out.
Her style certainly has changed over the years. Here’s a glimpse into the former child star’s dramatic makeover:
A celebrity in the UK, Alex Gerrard knows the importance of keeping up appearances. Her marriage to Steven Gerrard has lasted eons by normal WAG standards. The successful and ridiculously good-looking couple often make public appearances together but the real rockstar is her football champion hubby.
Alex is carrying the Celine Luggage Tote, a wildly popular bag from the Celine collection. Nearly every celebrity has been spotted wiht this bag. It’s become a fashion staple, something you simply cannot do without. Not having this bag is like admitting you either don’t keep up with trends or don’t care about them. While there’s nothing wrong with being a rebel, it’s also really fun to flaunt you style savvy and ability to stay on point with the changing fashion landscape.
There have been so many film remakes based on the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald but the one coming out this year is set to be the most famous of the last hundred years. One name: Leonardo Dicaprio. That and the star studded cast. They even hired top models to play the fabulously wealthy, beautiful party-goers. It’s possible Miranda was there to support her fellow runway fiends.
Miranda Kerr showed up in a very subdued outfit. It’s even a little too casual for the premiere but her white Prada tote from the latest collection pulls her look back up to chic. She’s been spotted dozens of times with this bag, so it’s clearly a favorite. The color white is a recurring theme in the novel, films and most of 1920′s artwork and styles so it’s fitting that she carried it to the red carpet.
Okay, this is weird. It’s one of those rares occasions on which we don’t love something a celebrity is wearing. Diane Kruger is one of those actress/models who excel at both of those jobs. She’s been a leading lady in so many major Hollywood flicks. She’s so high up in the respected models list that Karl Lagerfeld has a soft spot for her. She’s one of his fashion muses the way Blake Lively of Gossip Girl is. Maybe that’s why she agreed to carry this somewhat ridiculous bag?
Her outfit is just drop dead gorgeous. Slim, well cut pants and a super FABULOUS fur coat. Classic black strappy sandals. The white polka dotted shirt is something we’d love to steal from her closet. Overall, her outfit is a total win. But the bag? Don’t get us wrong, Chanel is an amazing brand. But how many women are going to spend thousands of dollars on a bag that’s made of plexiglass and looks like a toy? It’s ALMOST as ridiculous as the hula hoop bag:
