Taylor Swift has been in the news quite a lot this past week. First, her 4th of July made the most waves of any celebrity celebration in the US simply because of how many famous faces she got together. She partied with Lena Dunham, Jessica Szohr, Emma Stone and so many others as though they’ve been BFFs for life. Do celebrities hang out together because they genuinely love each other as their huge smiles indicate or do they hang out together because their photos come out ridiculously good? That’s a question for the ages. The vintage-loving pop star then penned an article explaining to aspiring musicians that success comes to those who can connect with their fans. This sage advice would be a little easier to swallow if she were to explain how to get those fans in the first place. That’s like explaining how to wear a cute little black dress without explaining how to get legs and long and slender as her own. Oh wait, some things come down to luck, not just hard work.
It looks like top celebrities are going crazy after the updated version of Louis Vuitton’s Soft Lockit Bag Collection.
After Charlize Theron and Carey Mulligan, Jessica Alba, was also spotted carrying a pale pink Louis Vuitton’s Soft Lockit Bag. In fact the SIN CITY star rocked the bag twice! Well, who wouldn’t fell in love with those elegant curves and subtle dyed edges?
Introduced by the enchanting Michelle Williams, the upgraded version of Louis Vuitton’s Soft Lockit Bag displays feminine elegance. So that’s why Jessica Alba seem to radiate while carrying that dazzling handbag…hmm (raised eyebrow here ;))
With a rather simple yet elegantly soft Veau Cachemire leather make, the LV Soft Lockit Bag sure is a spotlight stealer! Aside from this soft pink “Magnolia” version, the LV Lockit Collection will also come in chic subtle shades of Galet, Framboise and Quetsche.
This bag is already sold out yet will be available in stores for $4,250 in July. And yup, we’re already saving some bucks 😉
The higher Channing Tatum’s fame rises, the more popular Jenna Dewan Tatum gets as well. Maybe it’s because she’s been by his side on every red carpet since the Step Up première. Right now, his movies are doing well but show is her TV series, Witches of East End. That’s why she’s more visible than ever. The paparazzi even caught her walking around with this subdued but chic Celine bag.
She’s on every talk show and magazine cover to promote the show. In doing so, she revealed how it’s slightly awkward to have ahem, intimate scenes with male actors on the series, especially when the guys are friends with her husband.
When the HBO show Girls started out, it was surprising to see that none of the girls were in typical television star fitness. Hannah was ridiculed for being overweight and eating constantly, even cupcakes in that bath. Her body sparked intense debates about the show. Even the gorgeous Jessa wasn’t toned like every sitcom star. And Marnie, Allison William’s character, was the slimmest but in not way “fit.” By the start of the second season, it appeared that Allison had realized how many angles the camera catches and returned for the first episode without an ounce of fat on her, even though she had already been slim. Now she has the body of a typical Hollywood movie star, thanks to her personal trainer. The days of lounging around in an apartment in sweatpants are over. Now it’s time to be the kind of 20-something who wears fitted dresses, trendy ankle boots and classy satchels like the Elle Studded Satchel by Rebeca Minkoff.
These paparazzi photos of Kim Kardashian at the airport give you a mild idea of what life is like for her on a daily basis. 90’s pop star from 98 Degrees told GQ Magazine lately that Kim got her first taste of fame by using him. After he asked her out on a date to the movies, he noticed a horde of paparazzi showed up by the time they were leaving. Although he didn’t say it flat out, he implied that no one was there when they showed up, but that Kim must have tipped them off while they were inside because they were waiting for photos when the couple got ready to leave. After that, all the gossip mags wanted to know who Kim was. Imagine how any girl seen talking to Justin Bieber gets all kinds of press coverage for a few days. Kim harnessed that publicity and made it grow into a gigantic TV, beauty product, clothing line – everything you can sell – industry. Is she a genius or did it all fall into her lap? You decide.
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!
If you missed the Grammy’s last night, there was one deliciously entertaining moment when T Swift thought she had won the Best Album of The Year Grammy when she had in fact lost it to Daft Punk. She was thisclose to doing her surprised beauty pageant contestant routine when she quickly regained composure. The entire Swift camp pulled the same face before deflating. Apparently they were all 99% sure the award was about to go to her!
Taylor can console herself knowing no one else has retro 50’s style down pat like she does. Her Tod’s Red Tote is one of her favorite bags and we’ve spotted her with it countless times. It may be simple but that’s her signature style. Effortless, upper crust and retro preppy chic. It’s too bad she broke up with the Kennedy she was dating because she would have made a great Jackie 2.0.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and husband Freddie Prince Jr. are doing really well these days. If you thought their golden careers are just a thing of the past, you can’t be blamed because they haven’t been around in a while. Sarah’s last show got canceled before anyone even realized she ways back on the air and Freddie’s last hyped movie was Summer Catch, which seems like a lifetime and a million fashion cycles ago. These days both of their shows are doing well – The Crazy Ones and The Witches of Eastwick.
Sarah was spotted get her golden locks touched up at an L.A. hair salon. She seemed in a good mood even though the pesky paparazzi were hounding her quite a bit for a couple of blocks. Her marriage is the equivalent of 30 years in Hollywood time so maybe that’s one thing she has to smile about. The second thing could be that really cute tassled Gucci shoulder bag. It’s definitely different because although Gucci is a very mainstream brand, we don’t often see their bags around too much. If it takes Sarah to bring them back, we’re all for it!
If you look at Lady Gaga’s recent outfit, it’s pretty clear that she did go to the same New York prep school as Paris Hilton. She looks like a cross between a Vegas dancer and an LA party girl, which is way more Paris Hilton style than it is Gaga. Last time we saw her, she looked Hollywood glam and the time before that, she looked very Gaga in a crazy theatrical headpiece. At least we’re not bored.
The lavender colored shoes and matching bag are both from Versace’s 2014 Spring/Summer line. The bag is called the Versace signature flap handle bag and it’s quite similar to the last bag the singer was spotted with, which was also Versace (the Medusa bag). Versace seems to be trying to join Hermes and Celine in producing large tote-like bags. Looks like they’re going to be successful because we can picture many fashionable women carrying this new style in the years to come.
When celebrities have been in the clutches of fame for too long, they stop trying to look good all the time. They reserve that level of effort for red carpet events and front cover photo shoots. But when they’re trying to boost their level of fame and success, they make sure to look good 24/7. When you’re a model trying to break into Hollywood, the pressure is extremely intense. You can’t just look pretty, you have to look like the prettiest girl in the world. That could be why English model Rosie Huntington Whiteley has such impeccable style whenever she’s spotted out in public.
She was most recently seen hopping into LAX carrying this Givenchy Antigona bag. This has been quite an It bag for a lot of celebs. Nicole Ritchie has one she loves as does Ashley Tisdale. This one is very chic and subtle in an olive green color. Rosie seems proud of her beautiful bag by the way she displays it in the crook of her arm. Even though the rest of her outfit is pretty casual, she looks like an A lister because of her perfectly coiffed hair and makeup.
