Blake Lively is just another celeb who’s been spotted carrying a pastel bag in the last few months. It seems that the fashion crowd is heading towards lighter colors when it comes to bags for some reason. It’s not just for spring or summer, although it looks even better in warmer temperatures. Rihanna was spotted with a light pink leather bag, as was Karlie Kloss, although they both went for Louis Vuitton instead of Givenchy. It says a lot that both brands have put out the same color.
Here, Blake’s choice of bag makes a statement on it’s own. Just because she’s wearing a lot of black doesn’t mean she has to go for a white or black bag. The choice of pastel or light pink really makes her look stand out. And if that weren’t enough to make her look envious, check out the man holding an umbrella over her head like she’s a princess. Stars, they’re really not like the rest of us.
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 you’re still not convinced what a huge trend holographic bags are, check out Rita Ora carrying one from the Gucci Resort collection. It’s the exact same one Rihanna carried while wearing a flashy silver top. The lesson here is when you’re wearing white or silver, the Gucci Hologram clutch will look super fab with your outfit.
The model on the left is carrying the very latest color this particular bag style is now available in. Blake Lively is the only celeb who’s been spotted with this one so far. It will be available to the rest of the public within a few months, just in time for the next fashion season!
A couple of days ago,we promised more posts on Gucci’s super trendy hologram clutch. This bag style has inspired similar bags in all the high street stores like Zara and Forever 21. That’s because Blake Lively’s not the only one who looked unforgettable carrying it. Even Rihanna, who normally doesn’t wear glamorous clothes, looked pretty fab carrying the clutch while wearing a matching top. Even with the ripped jeans trend, she looks very chic and sophisticated.
The Hologram clutch has been around for a while, especially in the silver color. Blake Lively carried the newest form of the bag from the 2013/2014 Resort Collection with a beautiful bronze sheen to match her yellow leather dress. Which color do you prefer?
One of the celebs who wowed everyone at Paris Fashion Week was Blake Lively head to toe in Gucci. Seated next to Vogue head Anna Wintour in the front row, Blake cemented her status as a fashion icon and fashion darling Since getting married, the blonde bombshell has taken a break from acting. However, you may be seeing a lot more of her soon because she’s planning on launching a lifestyle and fashion company a la Gwyneth Paltrow.
The sparkly clutch she’s holding is from the Gucci Resort 2014 collection. It’s called the Hologram clutch and its one of the inspirations for the countless sparkly holographic clutches that you can now find in high street stores like Top Shop and Zara. It’s also a favorite clutch for other celebs as well and soon we’ll be posting different ways they’ve been spotted styling it.
It’s no wonder why we absolutely adore Blake Lively. We’ve been following her every move from her breakout role in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, to Gossip Girl, to The Town, and to the more recent, Savages. Blake Lively is talented, gorgeous and intelligent– a triple threat! Another thing we love about Blake Lively is her style. She always looks well put together and plays up her assets, aka, legs that run for miles. This particular look is relaxed, yet elegant. And the Givenchy Brown Antigona bag pulls it all together.
The gorgeous bag you see in Lively’s hand is the Givenchy Brown Antigona, made of cow leather. It retails for about $2400. The handles are a darker shade of brown and look great with the leather. We’ve seen Lively with this bag numerous times, which is probably why the leather on her bag appears softened. The bag’s size and shape makes it perfect for running errands, going to work, and stuffing with essentials. As you can see, it is a versatile bag because it also comes with a long shoulder strap. This bag is perfect for an every day look. Pair it with nude tones like Blake Lively and you’ll look a star too.
It’s the final season of Gossip Girl, ladies! That means this is the last year we’ll be receiving stills of the gorgeous Leighton Meester and Blake Lively shooting for the high fashion TV series. Both stars are fairly low maintenance outside of their roles as Serena and Blair, so we doubt we’ll be seeing these lovely ladies rocking the same level of trends after shooting wraps. The many designer items in their GG wardrobes is courtesy of many fashion houses that send things free of cost just to garner publicity. Not every starlet can afford a new bag a day or is interested in burning a hole in her pockets to do so.
The rest of us mere mortals like to awe in wonder in their hot off the runway accessories in the hopes of finding a *ahem* similar piece somewhere on the market. This colorful bag is the kind of piece you can find a budget version of without too hard a search. This one is the 3.1 Phillip Lim Small Lark Duffel.
It’s not the first time Blake has been seen carrying a colorful Phillip Lim handbag on the set of Gossip Girl…it seems the show’s stylists have a deep love for the designer. Also, this bag is actually from Spring 2012 but the stylists have chosen to have her carry it as they shoot for fall. Sometimes a bag is so cute that it doesn’t matter that it’s last season – even if you’re one of Hollywood’s hottest stars!
