Gwen Stefani may not have a hit song out this summer, but that doesn’t stop her from stepping out like the rockstar she is. At this point, she’s made so many hits over the years that she doesn’t feel the urgency to be on the charts every year to prove she’s still got it. Even though this lady is in her 40’s now, she’s in better shape and better dressed than most of the new pop stars out there. W hile other “basic” ladies out there are carrying only Chanel and Celine, Gwen shows she’s beyond that and into a more diverse set of labels. She clearly knows that Louboutins aren’t just shoes. This particular bag is the Christian Louboutin Panettone Spiked Satchel. From the front, it just looks like it’s embellished with multicolored studs when they are in fact spikes that look very edgy from the side. This multicolored bag looks even more fabulous paired with Gwen’s intense red heels!
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.
While we mere mortals have been scrambling to find coupons and holiday deals (some of us going as far as attempting to shop on the terror that is Black Friday), the wealthy find themselves showered with free wares. That’s the most ironic thing about suddenly hitting it rich. All the things you can now afford, people send you for free. That’s the case with mega popstar Rihanna, who tweeted pics of her early Christmas presents. Some of the year’s trendiest It bags arrived at her door with personalized notes and personalized initials embroidered into them for her. One of them is the tartan Prada Bowler bag and the Versace Medusa bag, both of which are really big deal. Too bad we can’t all be famous for beauty and popularity, if that’s what it takes to have designers send you free loot!
There are two kinds of people in the world – those who think Queen Bey can do no wrong and well…those who aren’t very into celebrity worship. Beyonce likes to go by the name Mrs. Carter on her pop diva tour, as a nod to hubby Jay-Z. Jay recently announced he’s trying to go vegan for a few weeks, so naturally B will be joining in on his endeavor. The music duo stopped by a hip L.A. vegan eatery this week but there’s just one hitch. Beyonce went wearing leather, fur and even a cow print leather jacket. For those out of the loop, besides being healthy, vegan living is supposed to be an alternative lifestyle that is merciful to animals. Nothing in your life can come from an animal product and that includes animal fur and hide. Oops. Better luck next time.
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.
Miley Cyrus was recently seen out and about in London. The young starlet is eager to show off her new look and her entirely redesigned persona to go with it. Her new style is very hip hop, glamorous and young money. Her casual duds were offset by her Celine Gold Box Bag, a revamped version of the Silver Chrome bag from the Winter 2012 collection. Winter is all about silver and summer was made for gold, so the bag is a perfect accessory. Her Gold Chrome Sunglasses were set to match.
Rita Ora isn’t just a British pop star. She’s Cara Delvigne’s best friend, which makes for a quick crossover into the world of fashion. You can’t be out partying with one of the world’s top models without absorbing a taste for fashion through osmosis.
Even when she’s dressed down, her accesories perk her look up. The white pumps are perfect with her white skinnies and the yellow Chanel flap bag adds a bright hue to keep the look from being too pink. It even matches her hair, almost. We’re realy hoping Rita’s taste in style continues to evolve in the same vein, instead of turning into a spectacle of hideousness like Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj.
