Lady Gaga isn’t seen all over the place like she used to be back in the day when she was trying to get famous by being outrageous. These days, she seems to be relaxing before she makes her next move. Her last album was kind of a flop because she tried to copy herself by creating a soup of her old beats mixed with other artists beats (coughMadonnacough). The end result was something that sounded like it was dying to be a hit but was SO last year. So now she’s hanging around New York, eating at her dad’s Italian restaurant, and trying out the retro 40’s vibe? While her look is an improvement on things she’s worn in the past, her wig isn’t doing her any favors. The dress is ok and although the bag is an authentic vintage Hermes Kelly, it looks slightly too beat up to still be impressive.
It’s been a while since Anne Hathaway has been spotted out and about. In fact, the last time she had a visible presence in the media world was right after she won an Oscar for her work in Le Mis. Around that time, she’d been showing up in so many films, red carpets and award shows that America was starting to turn on her. In fact, Jennifer Lawrence was beloved at that very moment while Anne was getting all the hate. Anne disappeared for a while and Jennifer Lawrence oversaturated the airwaves. Now everyone’s sick of JLaw and Anne commands a neutral opinion from the public.
From the looks of these movie stills with Robert De Niro and this gorgeous Celine Box bag, this is going to be the new The Devil Wears Prada. The twist is in this upcoming film the intern, De Niro is the internet and Anne’s character is the one that’s got it all figured out. This is going to be SO GOOD!
Gwen Stefani may not have a hit song out this summer, but that doesn’t stop her from stepping out like the rockstar she is. At this point, she’s made so many hits over the years that she doesn’t feel the urgency to be on the charts every year to prove she’s still got it. Even though this lady is in her 40’s now, she’s in better shape and better dressed than most of the new pop stars out there. W hile other “basic” ladies out there are carrying only Chanel and Celine, Gwen shows she’s beyond that and into a more diverse set of labels. She clearly knows that Louboutins aren’t just shoes. This particular bag is the Christian Louboutin Panettone Spiked Satchel. From the front, it just looks like it’s embellished with multicolored studs when they are in fact spikes that look very edgy from the side. This multicolored bag looks even more fabulous paired with Gwen’s intense red heels!
Demi Lovato has been having a good year. Last year she fell from grace and became plastered all over gossip rags for having myriad problems including self-mutilation, emotional issues and addiction to drugs including cocaine. After a round of rehab and weight gain followed by a back and forth tussle with critics, she finally seems to be doing great. Her American Idol days are behind her and she’s jumping back into the music scene in 2014. Meanwhile, buddy Miley Cyrus is doing well professionally but is losing respect from some fans because of her wild ways and constant talk about doing drugs. Selena Gomez just admitted to addiction and a stint in rehab. And let’s not even talk about Bieber!
Although Demi says she’s on the straight and narrow now, she’s still adventurous when it comes to style. Her hair is always a bright pink or blue and her clothes always have an expensive punk vibe. The one way she maintains her celebrity style is with her iconic Givenchy Antigonia bag, which has also been spotted many a time on model Miranda Kerr’s arm.
This season, Kim Kardashian has been utterly obsessed with draping extremely large and luxurious jackets over her shoulders. This is a thing in the fashion world because magazine editors and bloggers want to show of their outerwear while it’s still warm. That’s why they’ll half-heartedly wear a jacket. Kim’s been trying very hard to get in with the fashion world because it’s important to hubby Kanye. Naturally, whatever big sister Kim does, little sisters have to try out too. The hair, the makeup, the bags and even the little things Kim does get copied. Which isn’t necessarily a bag thing because little sister Kylie looks pretty glam. It’s just too bad she usually dresses like she’s also in her 30’s like Kim when she’s really just a young teen!
You know when celebrity disappears for a while and you expect to have the them show up sometime in the distant future looking poor and disheveled? Well, Jessica Simpson is not one of them. Atleast not anymore. She hasn’t been active in the entertainment industry for a while, which is sad in a way because at one point she was on top with her music as well as with movies like the Dukes of Hazzard. It’s okay on the other hand because her stepping down allows new faces we love, like Jennifer Lawrence, to have their moment as America’s sweetheart.
Also, Jessica is busy having babies and running her own fashion empire. Did you know her clothing line is doing extremely well? We’re talking billions of dollars. Maybe that’s why she manages to look so great. She’s got her luxe winter look going on with platinum blonde locks, black leather leggings, a shawl, fur, the whole shebang and even a studded Valentino tote. These babies seem to be getting more and more popular these days. Maybe they’re going to be the new It bag?
Katie Holmes is used to the constant flurry of activity that follows her wherever she goes in New York with daughter Suri. That’s just a price of fame when you have an incredibly high profile romance, marriage and divorce with a decades-long celebrity like Tom Cruise. For her to spend time in Los Angeles must be a hellish experience because for most famous people, New York gives them a chance for respite. If you’re getting hounded by the paps in NYC, you’re going to get hounded 100X worse in L.A.
So it makes sense that Katie flew down to Miami for a break with her daughter in tow. Although Miami is warm even in the summer, Katie looks slightly cold with blue lips by the pool in her hot pink bikini. What looks super fab next to her is her Valentino tote. That’s one of the perks of being rich and famous. You may not get any privacy but at least you have so much money that using a bag worth thousands of dollars as a beach tote feels normal.
Jennifer Garner is the anti-Kardashian. The only time you’ll see her looking like a killer combination of sexy and edgy is in an action movie or TV series. When she’s at home in California, she’s often spotted in tattered mom jeans, comfy shoes and sweaters that look so soft that a pile of kittens belong snuggling in them. So even when Jennifer carries a Prada tote, it’s not a sleek black leather tote that’s characteristic of the brand. Instead, it’s a colorful checked bag that you wouldn’t even know was Prada unless someone told you.
This is the Prada Vichy Checked Bowler Bag and it’s one of the most vibrant bags to come from the handbag line in a long while. When we spot Prada bags in celebrity hands, it’s often with Miranda Kerr who carries patent leather totes in solid colors. This soft fabric exterior bag is a cute and welcome change. Maybe we’ll be seeing more innovation from Prada in the near future.
Maria Sharapova was spotted in Brisbane airport with this beautiful Chloe bag. Called the Python Alice bag in Blush and black, it’s the perfect combo of feminine dusty rose contrasted with a strong black hue. The fresh, solid color is a breath of fresh air from the normal hot pink-black combos, which have been an eyesore.
Known for more than just being a beautiful Russian tennis star, Maria has dated pop stars and has been a fashion world darling for many years now. Her incredibly tall, slim and athletic body looks fabulous in expensive clothes. Even when she’s in casual flats and slacks, she looks great because she’s naturally stunning and because her Chloe bag is a treat for eyes that love fashion. The design in the front is also spot on with the color blocking trend.
Soon to be a yummy mummy of Beverly Hills, Petra Ecclestone was spotted leaving Madeo’s in Beverly Hills. Spending time shopping with her mother, she was carrying a very recently released “Celine Whipsnake White Box Bag”. “Whipsnake” is one of the more recent editions of this fab glam Celine bag.
The pattern of the exotic leather is appears to be small snakeskin zig zags on the exterior. The monochromatic color is black and white, making it look very classic yet rogue. The gold hardware is a beautiful touch. Billionaire heiress and Hollywood famous-for-being-rich girl Petra carries her bag as a clutch although it comes with long straps, allowing you to wear it as a cross-body bag or as a shoulder bag. We know the blonde fashion goddess would never hold a bag so casually as to sling it over herself as a cross-body bag. After all, this petite young woman lives in a 100 million dollar home. Here’s to keeping it super fancy at all times.
