Patti LaBelle is a Diva in the first degree and one of the best songstresses we have ever known. So it is not hard to believe that when she steps out she knows how to dress it up or dress it down. Very recently she was seen leaving the Dancing with the Stars rehearsals with a beautiful black Hermès Birkin. Whether you like her dance moves or not coming up on the season you can’t fault her fashion sense.
If you are of the right age group you remember Ashley Olsen as one half of the adorable team of twin sisters that played Michelle Tanner on Full House. She would run around doing any number of cute things for her family on the show, but my has she grown up and turned into a bit of a fashion icon to watch. Ashley loves a good bag and she seems to have a fondness for Birkin and who could blame her Birkin is one of the most sought after bags in fashion.
If there’s anyone who can find something gorgeous yet simple to wear when it’s over 90 degrees and insanely humid in New York, it’s Miranda Kerr. She’s on the fast track to becoming one of the most successful models on the planet, right after Gisele Bundchen, who makes over $128,000 a DAY. Being born with good genes is called winning the genetic lottery maybe because it IS like winning the lottery. That’s how these fancy ladies afford expensive bags like this Hermes Birkin, which STARTS at $10,000 and requires months of being on a waiting list before you can fork out the cash. Talk about being blessed (fashion-wise, at least!)
Ever since Miranda Kerr split from Victoria’s Secret, she’s been making her way in the world with her own personal style. Her outfits are very sophisticated and grown-up, which is very unique if you take a look at what the other Angels and ex-Angels wear. Most of them are very casual, even in cases of more famous and successful models like Gisele. Others, like Alessandra Ambrosio have kids but still dress like they’re in their teens. Cut-off denim short shorts and bare midriffs in typical Coachella fashion. It’s nice to see a beautiful girl put in the effort to look polished even though her pretty face could carry her even if she wore a potato sack. Her bag is serious business too – a svelte Hermes Birkin in luxury black leather. Wouldn’t anyone who could afford it indulge in this status icon?
How strange is it that Kim Kardashian seems to be struggling to maintain her relevancy yet her younger sisters have no trouble at all gathering the spotlight even though they’re usually dressed casually? When you’re young, the world is excited about what you’re up to. Maybe that’s why the Jenner sisters see a flurry of web activity after either of them post a bikini photo. When Kim does it, it’s no big deal because she’s done it a million times before. With younger girls, a bag like the Givenchy Lucrezia also looks very impressive. How many 17-18 year olds in the world can afford a bag like this even when they’re wealthy? The Kardashians don’t have your average moral compass which makes them reign in the conspicuous spending. Their parents aren’t the type to say “No, that’s too much money for such a young girl to be wearing! Focus on your grades!” It’s only natural for the rest of the teenage girls around the globe to “ooh” and “aah” in adoration and envy.
We love how Emma Robert’s leather jacket is printed with Dior’s signature pattern, the same one you’ll find on many of their classic bags. Most of what she’s wearing is Dior as well, including that very cute Dior Lady Dior Snakeskin bag. It appears that she wanted the bag to be the main attraction and decided to keep the rest of her outfit low key as a result. Nothing makes a statement like a metallic bag. The only thing majorly wrong with the rest of her look is the length of her maxi leather skirt. It’s just a tad too Amish and her hair is a little too perfect. A girl in a leather jacket and a metallic bag should look a little more alive, no?
Olivia Palermo doesn’t have to do much to win the hearts of the fashion world besides show up. Her jacket and top are a riot of color, even though they’re clashing prints. That’s something that takes talent to pull off so well. Her silky-satin shorts are to die for and they look even more amazing with the Valentino VaVaVoom bag she chose to complement them with. The olive color is so rich and unique – it’s not the kind of thing you see all over the place. She really knows how to take pieces you wouldn’t re think to buy because they’re a challenge – and then she shows you how to pull it off while making it look effortless.
If you like your fashion on the glamorous side, you probably have a thing for Olivia Palermo. The girl is known for her ability to always look put together as if she was coordinated specifically for a magazine editorial. Here she has the Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola bag in red. She was spotted at the airport in Cannes after days of fancy parties on yatchs.
The weird thing about Olivia is that if you watch her in her reality show The City, she comes across as someone who absolutely hates the fashion industry. The girl was famous for doing anything to get out of having to work, which was strange because she was working at Teen Vogue. The truth is she only likes fashion when it comes to dressing herself. If she has to dress someone else or talk about fashion with lowly commoners, she has a panic attack. Here’s what she wore to Cannes this month.
Every time someone reminds us that Kylie Jenner is only 15, we’re still a little shocked. The two younger sisters – Kylie and Kendall seemed glued at the hip about a year ago. But then taller, slimmer Kendall flew the coop and decided to become a runway model. Since Kylie’s a couple of inches too short, she decided to become a “personality” instead, like the rest of her family.
The young reality star seems to be following in her sisters’ footsteps, tweeting shockingly revealing and sexualized images of herself in skimpy bikinis. However, it’s possible that her style could evolve to be better than Kendall’s, who wears whatever will make her look skinny or like a VS model. Kylie doesn’t have model legs but she is getting the hang of looking like a celeb, practicing with the Celine bag she was given by her family as a Christmas present this past holiday season.
