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!)
Alessandra Ambrosio’s home country Brazil lost the World Cup semi-final to Brazil at a humiliating 7-1 defeat yesterday. Half of Victoria’s Secret supermodels must be crying their eyes out because so many of the tall, tan beauties come from that warm and energetic country. But even if you’re a supermodel, it’s okay to indulge in ice cream to feel a little better.
Meanwhile, German supermodel Heidi Klum was having the time of her life counting all the goals her winning team was making!
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?
When Gisele Bundchen married Tom Brady, everyone knew they would make beautiful babies as they are both two of the world’s most beautiful people. Even after having had several children, it’s amazing how flawless Gisele looks. Not only are her iconic long legs are slender as ever, her enviable voluminous hair is a thing of wonder. That’s the kind of hair women take a photo of to the hair salon and say, “That. I want THAT.”
It’s too bad her entire look is so hard to copy. That’s why she’s the world’s highest earning model even in semi-retirement. And even though she looks casually dressed, that’s a luxury designer bag on her her. The Givenchy Lucrezia, which is very similar to the Givenchy Nightingale. It’s a little more casual because of the almost bowling bag asymmetrical shape but it’s still stunning. Just like her.
Most fashionistas who love them some Gucci, Louis and Fendi have a tendency to scoff at the sight of a Coach bag. There are two reasons for the Coach hate among those who love the finer things. They’re more affordable and thus more often seen being carried by people who lack fashion sense and thus knock the image of the brand. They have looked outdated for a while because of the heavily monogrammed look that went out of style back in the early 2000’s.
The fact that SJP (a fashion legend) has been spotted with a Coach means the brand is headed for a turn around. Like we predicted months ago, a lot of brands are now favoring a “less is more approach.” It started with the dramatic YSL makeover. Wealthy people don’t want to flaunt their wealth to the general public in this recession but they still want to buy luxury products that are easily recognizable by other wealthy people. That’s why the trend for bags that clearly look like they’re made of luxury leather but lack logos are so in right now. They’re like covert status symbols. This is the Borough Bag and will be in the market within a few months.
For the last few weeks, various fashion weeks have been taking place around the world. Whenever this time of year comes around, you can be sure to see models, actors and anyone who’s anyone in the fashion biz dressed to the 9’s. Even Cara Delvigne, who dresses somewhat sloppily on her downtime (overalls, tanks and tennis shoes) made the effort to look like a lady. She looked downright glam with this Fendi Be Baguette.
The original Fendi Baguette was made popular by Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie on Sex And The City in the late 90’s and early 00’s. The original version was smaller and slimmer as well. The updated version is more in sync with current trends. The solid, symmetrical shape and bold color are just right for 2013.
Remember the studded Alexander Wang bag? If you haven’t got one yet because you thought it would fade away like fad, it’s not too late. That’s what so great about It bags. The top five bags that have had a huge celebrity following aren’t going to fall out of favor any time soon. Bags like the Birkin, Chanel flap bag, Celine Luggage, Proenza Schouler Satchel and Alexander Wang bag are all carefully designed to have both glamorous looks and high utility. That means they can be used anytime, anywhere, with any kind of outfit and the high quality design keeps them from looking used or falling apart. This studded satchel in particular is owned by almost every celeb on the planet. Here, Nicky carries the gray one but the black is infinitely popular as well.
All the haters who keep speculating that Miranda Kerr is about to split with husband Orlando Bloom every time they’re not photographed together can really give it a rest. The young couple seem to be in the early throes of love. Miranda easy-going personality and willingnes to smile all the time also make those rumors extra far-fetched.
The pretty model was spotted with a Louis Vuittone Vivienne shoulder bag with a long strap. Because the young mom is so active, a larger bag would really get in the way. Actress Angelina Jolie also models and acts as a brand ambassador for LV…could it be that the Vivienne bag is named after one of her beautiful young daughters?
Gwyneth Paltrow’s having a very busy season. She inexplicably got named People Magazine’s Sexiest Woman of the year. Her online magazine Goop has been under fire for suggesting readers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on luxury designer clothing. Everything she endorses is insanely expensive. However, she can’t help that she’s wealthy and isn’t ashamed of enjoying it. Whether others like it or not, she gives advice and those who can afford to take it love her for it.
The rest of us can just sit back and watch her style herself to perfection. She was recently spotted carrying this black and white Celine Luggage tote in New York. When she carried it in the evening, it really complemented her outfit nicely. She always manages to look pristine and WASP-ish when she dresses up. However, when she carried it the morning after she just looked like a regular person without the professionally done hair and makeup. But kudos to her for being able to wear leather skinny jeans after two kids. Many of us can’t do that when we’re in our 20’s and she puts us to shame in her 40’s!
Diane Kruger was spotted in New York a few days ago with husband Joshua Jackson. Her outfit is a testament to her modeling days and tells you she is well versed in the do’s and don’t of fashion. Whatever she’s wearing underneath is a mystery but her navy peacoat looks so stylish and shows off her slender legs. The mile high heels don’t look too shabby either.
The purse she’s got over her shoulder is the Chanel 224 Crocodile Reissue Flap Bag. We’ve noted that we’re not seeing celebrities carrying the quilted Chanel flap bags as much anymore. Those were carried so much in the last five years that people seem to have quilted bag fatigue. However, chain bags and flap bags are just as trendy as ever. Its important to mix it up and try new colors, sizes and textures like croc leather. Diane looks fab overall.
