Adriana Lima is one happy camper. Who wouldn’t be with that face, body and lifestyle? The beach beauty enjoyed a day out in Miami using the Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Neverfull tote. It’s the perfect name for the bag, which IS inspired by street art or graffiti and is roomy enough to have earned the moniker Neverfull. It’s also a little rare to see an LV bag like this, since so many of them have been coming out in pastels like the soft pink ones many celebs have been spotted carrying. This one is a perfect example of how LV keeps its structure classic but loves to mess around with the surface design on the leather.
It’s hard to believe Jaime King had a baby just a few short months ago. She’s gifted with one of those rare, supermodel bodies so she hardly gained weight anywhere besides her belly to begin with. Now she’s back to looking as fabulous as ever, which is why she’s been such a successful model and actress. And even though she lives in sunny California, she pulls off New Yorker style with such aplomb here.
It’s so hard to pick out which part of her outfit is best – the artsy shoes, the oversized watch over long sleeves, the retro sunglasses, the chic black dress or the Tory Burch Elise Leather Satchel.
In cities like Los Angeles, where you have to walk everywhere, it doesn’t matter how big your handbag is. In fact, the bigger the better and the more recognizable the bag, the higher your status. But in cities where you’ll be doing a ton of walking like New York or Chicago, it can be a real drag to carry a heavy bag all day.
That’s why something beautiful yet compact like the Givenchy Pandora Billy Messenger bag is so essential. Its beauty lies in its simplicity and high utility. There are many high street bags trying to look like this but falling SO short.
It’s unbelivable how good Rosie Huntington Whitely looks on a daily basis. Even when she strolls out in L.A. in typical California girl style (skinny jeans and a t-shirt), she knows how to induce envy. But when she’s travelling or hopping between New York or London, she leaves the Cali girl vibes behind and really steps it up a notch. After all, in cities where there are biannual fashion weeks, you can’t run around looking like just another girl, especially when you have a supermodel reputation to uphold.
Although this bag could pass for black, it’s actually a dark olive green. It’s a cool concept for Rosie to have picked this bag. Normally when she’s spotted with it, she’s wearing an outfit in an earthy, neutral color. The fact that she wore a white dress with a pink blazer and still went for the olive green bag is a little daring. But it paid off, because she looks like a million bucks.
Rosie Huntington has developed a signature look. Ankle boots, skinny jeans to show off the supermodel legs, luxury casual top, stylish blazer. And to complete the look, she usually opts for a Givenchy bag. Her previous bag of favor was the Celine but we’re not seeing as many of those lately as new Givenchy and Louis Vuitton styles. Celine has had a few major hits and we’re still waiting for the next big thing from them.
When it comes to Givenchy, they’ve been doing really well with the Lucrezia and the Nightingale. These bags have been carried by countless celebs. Rosie is carrying the studded Lucrezia, which is new. It just goes to show that when you’ve got a hit bag on your hands, designers can keep a good thing going just by adding minimal changes. That way, those who can afford it can wear something trendy while maintaining a sense of individuality.
There’s something about Karlie Kloss’s new Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit bag that makes her look like a Barbie. It may be her supermodel slender legs or it could be the fact that it looks exactly like the kind of bag Barbie would have had – right down to the shape and perfectly bubble gum color. The difference is this is by the iconic French brand Louis Vuitton and it’s exterior texture is soft, luxurious leather. Her look varied a little bit throughout the day, from when she stepped out in casual clothing to when she dressed it up with an updo and a trenchcoat. Either way, she looked tres chic because of her gorgeous bag. The color is different from the darker hues we’re used to seeing from LV. It’s a nice change.
Rosie Huntington has fabulous airport style. She’s dressed really casually if you think about it – a soft, sheer top with what looks like comfy jeggings. She dressed up her look with minimal effort thanks to a snappy blazer and a high end bag – the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour tote. We predicted these would be the next big thing when they first came out. When it comes to the bag rich people love to buy, they’re not looking for labels or visible logos. They prefer to have a bag that looks expensive on its own due to the way it’s structured and the leather it’s made with. If you look at a cheaply made faux-leather bag, you’ll notice how easy it is for the untrained eye to quickly spot something of inferior quality. The richness of this bag comes through in these paparazzi photos. It’s not grainy or bumpy at all, which tells you how luxe the finish is.
It’s no secret that legendary beauty Kate Moss loves wearing black. She also happens to love black leather. That’s why the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag is so perfect for her. The leather couldn’t look more luxurious. This bag is also much-loved by another A Lister – Angelina Jolie. Both these ladies are more loyal to their handbag choices than most ladies. Kate’s been spotted carrying the bag on more than a few occasions. She loves to pair it with an equally stunning leather jacket or black leather skinny jeans. This is how one works an all-black handbag!
Miranda Kerr’s split from Orlando Bloom certainly hasn’t kept the model from looking her usual best so it’s no surprise the polar vortex hasn’t phased her either. While the rest of New York is bundled up and still shivering, Miranda is traipsing around town dressed like it’s toasty fall weather. No hat, no gloves, no problem!
Maybe her excitement over the new Valentino Lock Shoulder bag is keeping her too buzzed to feel the chill. Who are we kidding, she has too many hot designer bags to go gaga over one. This one is very similar to the Valentino Rockstar Tote but it has just one row of the trademark Valentino rockstar studs. It’s a little more somber because of that but even with minimal studs, this black leather number is still very much rock and roll. Would you buy in?
Winter holidays are coming up and it’s the season for doing good deeds and charitable acts of kindness. Some people do good just for the sake of helping others, even if it makes them look large-hearted and others just want all the glory without having to part with too much money! Kim Kardashian was raised in a very business-oriented household so sadly, she’s the former. The glamour queen recently asked her fans to go buy some of her clothes in sale for charity. What she neglected to inform them is just 10% of the proceeds go to charity. Where she lives in California, sales tax alone is 9%. Kim is worth nearly half a billion dollars but she would rather keep a few thousand more for herself rather than help those affected by the storm in the Phillipines.
Victoria Beckham also donated about 20 boxes of her clothing as well as that of David Beckham’s to the British Red Cross. All proceeds are going to the hurricane victims and her fans are ecstatic to get their hands on some of her clothes. Charity isn’t a competition but it’s almost criminal to tell fans to buy your clothes for charity before keeping most of the money for yourself. Sadly, this isn’t even the first time Kim pulled such a scam.
