Remember how the summer before last, all Kim Kardashian carried was Chanel and Celine on her arm? It looks like she’s back to her beloved Hermes. This range of bags is called the Birkin. The Birkin is infamous and needs no introduction. Women who can afford them start out by getting the most recognizable and usable versions of the bag – the black and orange leather Birkins. But when you’re a woman like Kim Kardashian, the basic stuff is really not what people expect to see you in.
The latest Birkins Kim’s been seen with are the huge black Birkin Kanye gave to her as a present, you know, the one with the handpainted Picasso-like painted ladies. This one is definitely more low-key, even though it most likely also cost a fortune. It’s a relatively small sized snake leather Birkin. The exotic animal print Birkins are always higher priced than the basic leather Birkins, so just because it’s small doesn’t make this Hermes bag modest!
It seems like Perez Hilton’s media empire is drawing its last breaths. The celeb blogger had been dealing with dwindling popularity for the last few years but now Hollywood’s biggest names are dishing out the fatal blows. Robert Pattinson just told the media for the second time that he wants to punch the guy who started calling him RPatz. He also happened to call Perez a fat slob. The funny thing is, Perez was famously punched in the face by the entourage of Black Eyed Peas singer Will.I.Am.
This sound bite comes just days after Perez’s former best friend Lady Gaga used Twitter to tell her fans how cruel Perez has been to her – going as far as to send her a picture of herself in a wheelchair captioned “Karma” with a gun photoshopped to her head. It seems that Perez is the most hated man in all of Hollywood. Now that celebs have their legions of fans also drawing claws at him, it won’t be long before he goes into hiding forever. Who will miss him?
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:
It’s been ages since Ashlee Simpson was culturally relevant. This generation probably can’t even name a song she sang or a TV show or movie she’s been in. Time flies crazy fast. Somehow she can still afford to live in LA and wear super fancy clothes.
This is the Givenchy Mink Pandora bag. For someone with such a casual dress sense like her, it almost looks out of place on her and absurdly so. It’s made of actual mink fur, something known world-wide for being rare, expensive and elitist. This is a gorgeous bag but is it too good for Ashlee?
A couple of years ago, January Jones became one of America’s biggest TV stars as Betty Draper. Her street style in L.A. is a lot more casual than Betty’s polished 60’s look but this bag is a little bit of a throwback to the style of the era.
Called the “Farida messenger bag”, this is actually by the famous designer Christian Louboutin. Did you even know he makes noteworthy bags? Neither did we, til now. The simple, minimalist shape lets the deep, striking color be what the bag is all about. If you like understated accessories and have a penchant for statement hues, you’ll love the Farida.
Reese Witherspoon is one of Hollywood’s A list actresses for a long time now. Everyone knows her from Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama. One could even go as far as to say she’s the millennial generation’s answer to Meg Ryan when it comes to rom-coms. Her down to earth style means she’s usually dressed casually whenever she’s seen out and about.
Here she’s wearing a very simple outfit to her son’s soccer game. What makes her stand apart from all the other moms on the field (besides her fame) is her LV bag. Known as the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM Bag, it has personalized Mon Monogram detail. That means only she has this exact bag in the whole world! She personalized it with a blue and red striped pattern and added her initials Laura Reese Witherspoon (LRW).
