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.
You know a dress is going to be legendary when three big celebs are wearing the same on one the same month and all on front page covers. That’s Blake Lively for Elle China, Sarah Jessica Parker for Harper’s Bazaar and Kate Upton for Elle. You would think that Elle’s branches in other countries would know what the others are up to but apparently not. It’s a little bit of a fashion blunder to put the exact same gown on the cover. The September issue is the biggest of the year and each fashion publication has to work extra hard to stand out from the pack.
It seems every fashion editor wanted to get their hands on this Gucci creation and you can’t blame them; the dress is gorgeous. There are two versions – one on the golden and on the silvery, blue side. Which is your favorite?
Michelle Tratchenberg looks like a sprightly 21 year old girl. Truth is, she’s youthful but has been around for a while. A teen star in flop films like Inspector Gadget, she is most well known for playing the younger sister in the cult favorite Buffy series and as the “one of the guys” girl friend in Eurotrip.
These days Michelle has just wrapped with Gossip Girl shooting and we’ve become accustomed to seeing her out and about on the town (NYC) dressed similar to her GG character, mean girl Georgina. When Georgina first showed up on the series, it was utterly delicious to see her in dark colors and luxe looking leather skinny jeans while the other characters were either dressing like over the top schoolgirls or as sparkly party princesses.
Here she carries a maroon leather bag by Tory Burch. Tory Burch is a known designer whose fame has skyrocketed in recent years because of her riche looking logo, well contrasting color combinations, interesting store bags and decor. Every girl wants a pair of Tory Burch sandals or TB handbag just to have a pop of color with a cute logo to wear. The funny thing is, Tory has also made a cameo appearance as herself on the TV series Michelle appears on (Gossip Girl) during an episode revolving around New York Fashion Week.
This burgundy leather bag is the kind that can add that color to a dark outfit and keep it from looking too “gothic.” The top handles also make it convenient to carry when you don’t want to shoulder strap it. While Michelle still dresses more like her TV character, we’re happy to hear her real life persona is a lot more amiable!
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!
Judging by the way Leighton Meester playfully handled her Stella McCartney SS2012 bag while shooting scenes for Gossip Girl this week, she’s in love with the minimalist chic design of the purse. The gold chain strap makes the vintage-looking bag a little trendy and in line with Blair’s fashion sense.
The bag is just the thing you’d see fashionistas cavorting with on LookBook. Even Kate Moss is often seen careening through London’s trendiest districts with her favorite Stella McCartney black clutch.
This Leighton Meester high fashion look is sure to be copied this summer. The simple, sleek and elegant design of the bag make it one that can be carried well with any outfit – even this bright and fresh summery floral print by Peter Som for his 2012 Spring Summer Collection.
The Miu Miu Mary Jane patent leather pumps are just what the outfit needed to keep from looking too conservative — they add a certain oomph factor that prim and proper Blair is known for. It’s just another classic in Blair’s wardrobe – the put together society girl always manages to look sweet and vixen-ish at the same time. Kudos to Blair’s stylists!
Emma Roberts and Glee pal Jenna Ushkowitz walk out of the star-studded birthday bash for writers James Krisel and Tom Gormican held at producer pal Holly Wiersma’s posh pad in Los Angeles.

Blake Lively tries to keep warm on a freezing day in New York City as she films an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl.
Blake was looking stylish wearing a Ralph Lauren Blue Label Simon Patchwork Coat, Ralph Lauren brown leather boots and carrying a Bordeaux Louis Vuitton Hazier Satchel.
Gossip Girl Michelle Trachtenberg walked the red carpet at at Elle’s 17th Annual ‘Women in Hollywood’ Tribute at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. For the occasion she’s wearing the Voom by Joy Han’s ruffle Sharon dress in eggplant and carrying the snakeskin-embossed Fling clutch by Rebecca Minkoff.
Ok, so she may not even be legal to do anything but drive in some smaller states but Taylor Momsen is the style maker that we love to watch. Here she is on the go on set of Gossip Girl carrying her Novella Royale Mister Stud Bowler Bag. Made from recycled leather jackets with organic cotton interior, this is just spot on and on our ‘must-have’ list.
I don’t know what I want more – Leighton Meester’s leopard-print Louis Vuitton scarf or her cream Nina Ricci Besace Flap Bag. Eh, why not both? The “Gossip Girl” star bundled up in style, and the stylish A-list accessories really help her black winter coat take it up a notch. All she needs now is one of Blair’s headbands!
