Blake Lively made quite splash at Cannes recently. She picked all the right outfits, had amazing hair and makeup. The poses she made with hubby Ryan Reynolds are what stole the show. They somehow managed to look at each other in ways that really conveyed to the camera how much in love they still are with each other. Although it looked genuine and spontaneous, the cynic in all of us wonders how much of the public displays of affection on the red carpet are due to the fact that they know hundred of cameras are zoomed in on them. If you found yourself in their shoes, would you also shamelessly play up your love for the camera?
It didn’t end there. Not only were her red carpet looks unbelievably glamorous, her airport attire also has the fashion blogosphere aflutter with envy. Everything in this look is so on point – the trendy yet classic loafers. This is how to do a comfy, flat shoe without letting it get boring. Her very French-inspired cropped pants with black top. And our favorite pieces of the look – the brown leather jacket and the Givenchy Mini Pandora Shoulder bag. Some people have been saying the new Alexander Wang bag) (the one carried by Lea Michele recently in this size is will be the new It bag but if we had to choose, we’d go for Givenchy. What about you?
If there’s any kind of new Chanel or Celine handbag, you can be sure at least one of the Kardashians already have it. Here, Kourtney uses the Celine Knot tote as a luggage tote to stuff in a few things on her way to the airport. Their use of designer bags used to be a little different back in the day. They would hold it up to show it off, Paris Hilton style. These days they just carry them around like they mean nothing, don’t they?
This famous family has gone from being ridiculed for their ties to trash reality tv to being all the way at the top. The world’s most renowned designers and fashion editors of different European Vogues were present at Kim Kardashian’s wedding. It just goes to show that if you have enough money, beauty and a team of people dressing you and doing your hair and makeup to make you look your best, you really can climb your way to the top. Being born into it is no longer necessary….except Kim may not have been royalty, but she was born into immense wealth. The clan grew up in Calabasas, which is one of the wealthiest areas of California after Beverly Hills. That puts a damper on our rags to riches story.
Rosie Huntington has fabulous airport style. She’s dressed really casually if you think about it – a soft, sheer top with what looks like comfy jeggings. She dressed up her look with minimal effort thanks to a snappy blazer and a high end bag – the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour tote. We predicted these would be the next big thing when they first came out. When it comes to the bag rich people love to buy, they’re not looking for labels or visible logos. They prefer to have a bag that looks expensive on its own due to the way it’s structured and the leather it’s made with. If you look at a cheaply made faux-leather bag, you’ll notice how easy it is for the untrained eye to quickly spot something of inferior quality. The richness of this bag comes through in these paparazzi photos. It’s not grainy or bumpy at all, which tells you how luxe the finish is.
There was a time when teenage billionaires Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen rolled out their range of makeup and clothing targeted to tweens at Wal-Mart. Now they’re rolling high class as designers behind The Row, a very upscale brand. In fact, they’re more pricey than Hermes. Mary Kate is carrying two bags from their own range and together, they ring up to a whopping $80,000.
The backpack and as well as the tote are both made of croc leather. Crocodiles are kept at farms in order to harvest their hides and in some cases, baby crocs are used for making softer leather. Whether this is your cup or tea or not, that’s why croc leather is so expensive. After all, a croc farm is a lot more difficult to run than a regular ‘Ole Mcdonald farm!
Remember back in the early 2000’s when if you had any money at all, you’d have to travel with Louis Vuitton? Or at least that’s what the celebs did. The A listers of the day couldn’t get enough. Paris Hilton seemed to light the match on the trend and before you knew it, Jessica Simpson turned into a hardcore Louis Vuitton collector. Because the bags are considerably less expensive than Hermes Birkins, the trend became wildly popular. It’s been MIA for about a decade so this could mean the classic style is set to make a comeback. As they say, fashion trends are cyclical. This one is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM bag, which comes in three different sizes.
It’s not often that Angelina Jolie makes public appearances, but when she does, it’s usually at an airport with her kids. Since she’s a brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton, she’s almost always carrying an LV tote. The one she was spotted with this time was the LV Capucines tote bag.
The LV aesthetic has changed a lot in the last few years and has become more mature. Now there are more clean lines instead of asymetrical bags with LV monograms. The Capucines tote has a LV cut out logo, making it one classy bag for one of the world’s most glamorous women. The bag comes in lots of different colors so if black isn’t your thing, there are other options including purple and blue.
Cameron Diaz has been a pretty busy lady lately. For those of you wondering why you haven’t seen her in a film, it’s because she’s been busy creating and being a part of her newest flick “The Other Woman.” The cast is huge and even includes funny lady Leslie Mann and newcomer celebumodel Kate Upton. To get a break from filming, Cameron jetted off on a luxury holiday with pal Gwyneth Paltrow. On the flight back to New York, she was spotted with the Chanel Cerf bag in beige. This bag is a celeb fave. Lady Gaga’s been spotted with a black one and reality star Kyle Richardson has one in the same color as Cameron.
As many of you already know, Blake Lively has been Karl Lagerfeld’s muse and a Chanel’s spokesperson for a few years now. There are models who promote the brand and then there are celebrity actresses and famous royals who are invited to act as brand ambassadors. So that explains why you’ll most often see her carrying a Chanel bag above all others.
She was recently spotted carrying this Chanel bag at an airport after a romantic excursion with husband Ryan Reynolds. This bag is a little different in texture from other Chanel quilted bags as you’ll see the bubbles are a little more pronounced. It’s called the Chanel Bubble Quilted Flap Bag in burgundy. She’s has this bag for a while now and from the looks of it, she loves accessorizing with her outfits quite frequently.
This is beginning to look like Anne Hathaway’s year. While the actress has been wildly popular since her teen-flick days in the late 90’s, her latest film Les Miserables is hot with Oscar buzz. Her short hair has also had the fashion world talking. The beauty had to starve herself to lose weight for the film but now that she’s beginning to look healthy again, her mood seems to have lifted and her style has gone up with it! Here she is landing in Narita airport with hubby Adam Schulman while toting around a Givenchy Antigona bag.
This bag has been spotted with many other celebs, but no one makes it look as classy as Anne. Her famous stylist Rachel Zoe carried the same bag about a year ago but it was lost in the sea of accessories she’s continuously pictured with. Since Anne hasn’t made a business of stepping out in designer goods, when she does get spotted with one, we know it’s because she really likes it. The bag has a riche dark blue suede exterior with a unique zebra imprint. It’s simple but exquisitely refined because of it’s subtle designs. It’s also roomy enough to be the perfect bag for any girl who has to cram all her stuff in to catch a flight but wants to look good too.
If you were running to catch a flight in one of the most celeb-infested airports of the world, a person trying to hide their face with a big hat and sunglasses is the first one you’d suspect is famous, right? This look at me, don’t look at me vibe which celebrities follow is quite intriguing.
Even with seemingly makeup free face, Eva Longoria is instantly recognizable. After many seasons on Desperate Housewives, we’d know that pint-sized fashionista anywhere. Being a Hollywood celeb, her idea of “casual wear” is out idea of dressed up. The bag she’s carrying is the Celine Bicolored Vertical Cabas Bag.
Celine’s small and chic shoulder bags were the first to appear all over the fashion scene, then the Phantom totes. This one isn’t as popular yet, making it a more unique option for those who love to have an item or fashion accessory which everyone else doesn’t already. The salmon and orange color blocking against a white outfit and camel colored accessories really make it pop out and look fresh. The tote shape of the bag make it perfect for carrying for travel, for long day excursion or relaxing at the beach. Would you carry this bag? Let us know in the comments below!
