The Many Bags Of Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga, a quintessential modern pop star, with 42 million Twitter followers, or “little Monsters” as she refers to them, has to be one of the most  iconic females of the 21st century.

Pamela

Whether you love her or hate her, Pamela Anderson has been known to make some correct fashion choices. While sometimes she makes some interesting choices when it comes to clothing, the well known Pamela usually makes the perfect choice when it comes to her handbags. There was a time when we wouldn’t have seen Pamela with leather as she took up arms with PETA and took a stand, those times seem to have changed now as she has been spotted with the beautiful Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag around town.

If you’re going for the femme fatale look, take a leaf from Scarjo’s book. The plum lips and understated black Saint Laurent clutch add a bit of drama to an already dramatic looking without making it look over the top. We really love the structured jacket and the way it raps ver the dress without being clasped shut. The lacy neckline is just the right touch of feminine mystique to complete the look.

The only thing we’re not in love with is Scarlett’s vampy, “come hither” look she’s trying to shoot towards the cameras in the right. It comes across as trying to hard to be sexy and looking sleepy instead.

Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit Clutch

We, like the rest of the world, love Jennifer Lawrence. She’s quirky, funny, and totally uninhibited. Mostly known for The Hunger Games, Miss Jennifer Lawrence just won her first Oscar for her acting in Silver Linings Playbook alongside the gorgeous Bradley Cooper. Lawrence always wears fashion forward clothing, while keeping it classy and casual.

Recently Jennifer Lawrence was named the face of Dior. So now she usually wears Dior gowns at red carpet events. We’re not too thrilled since most of her dresses look the same now. In fact, didn’t see wear one just like this a few weeks ago in red? Anyhow, her Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch is simply fabulous. It is a completely shiny silver clutch that goes perfectly with her Dior gown.

Megan Fox and Her Givenchy Lucrezia bag

Megan Fox, named the Hottest Woman in the World by too many magazines to list, is one of the most fashionable celebrities in Hollywood. Her movies, “Jennifer’s Body”, “Transformers”, and “This is 40”, were huge blockbusters. If not for the screenwriting and acting, just because we all love to look at her. Pictured above is the foxy Fox at LAX airport wearing a simple ensemble, carrying a Givenchy Lucrezia Bag.

We’ve seen the bag with other celebrities like Charlize Theron in different colors. Fox is holding a black on black Lucrezia bag. The bag itself is made out of linen, but the bottom is lined with leather, and there are other leather accents. The size and durability make it perfect for any occasion, including traveling. Pair your Givenchy Lucrezia tote with a simple outfit, and killer heels.

How many girls can pull off the “hair sleeked back tightly” look? Only Miranda Kerr, the effortless beauty. When she’s not flaunting her fitness for Victoria’s Secret, she wears classy, comfy clothes. No one needs to be sexy all the time and Miranda knows how to coast on pretty fabulous. It also seems like designers love her well enough to hand her their goods all the time just because she makes them look so good. 

Often spotted carrying the latest trend bag, here she carries the YSL CHYC Tote to Los Angeles International Airport, where hubby and baby daddy Orlando Bloom is employed, no doubt. This azure blue tote still has the Y clasp that makes YSL bags stand out. The new head designer for YSL, Hedi Slimane prefers a more subtle look and has started out by designing the latest bag without a logo. Could this mean the type that Miranda is carrying will one day become a collectors item? While it’s too soon to say, her bag sure is a piece worth investing in. 

Gwyneth doesn’t look like a superstar in these pics taken of her at LAX, but she was and still is one of Hollywood’s A listers. She was once the girl who nearly married Brad Pitt. She comes from a Hollywood family, has a string of critically acclaimed and blockbuster hits. British women recently polled to choosing her over all others as inspiration at the plastic surgeons’ office. 

With her star power, she doesn’t have much left to prove. She knows WE know she’s got it all. So that leaves no need to tote around branded luggage. Here she is, low key as ever, carrying a bag which isn’t flashy but sure is hard to get your hands on. It’s an elite first piece from the studio of Hedi Slimane, Yves Saint Laurent’s new head designer. 
While it remains to be seen where the fashion house will go under his direction, his first bag is a good indication. The no-frills, no flash, no logo style is on point with other big name fashion brands like Celine and Givenchy, which are also known for creating easily recognizable looks without the use of logos or Louis Vuitton style monograms. But would you pay thousands for this bag? 

YSL Issues Rebuttal In Louboutin 'Red Soles' Lawsuit

It’s the fashion eye-roll seen ’round the world: in April,Christian Louboutin, one of fashion’s most iconic shoemakers, filed a lawsuit against fashion house Yves Saint Laurent for manufacturing shoes with Louboutin-style red soles. Louboutin trademarked his red varnished heels back in 2008 and is seeking $1 million in damages (which we calculated to be the equivalent of 250 pairs of Louboutin shoes).

The most recent courtroom update involves an arguably snarky rebuttal from YSL, essentially pooh-poohing Louboutin’s claims. According to The Daily Mail, Louboutin claims to be “the first designer to develop the idea of having red soles on women’s shoes,” in spite of the fact that YSL has used scarlet soles on select shoe styles since the ’70s — long before Louboutin’s innovation in 1992.

Court papers filed by YSL state that “Louboutin was fradulent in his trademark application claim that he had ‘exclusive’ use of the red sole:

“Red outsoles are a commonly used ornamental design feature in footwear, dating as far back as the red shoes worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in The Wizard of Oz.”

Louboutin also went head-to-head, or heel-to-heel, with Brazilian shoemaker Carmen Steffens for producing shoes with his “signature” soles. In both lawsuits, Louboutin claims that the other designers’ red-soled shoes are being mistaken for those by Louboutin, creating a false identity for his company.

Christin Louboutin stopped by his boutique in west hollywood to sign shoes and some fans lined up for as long as 5 hours to meet him there.

NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) – Paris-based designer Christian Louboutin, whose pumps have graced many fabulous and famous feet, sued fashion rival Yves Saint Laurent over the use of the color red on shoe soles.

“Mr. Louboutin is the first designer to develop the idea of having red soles on women’s shoes,” said the trademark infringement lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court on Thursday.

Since January, Louboutin said in the suit, he has asked luxury company Yves Saint Laurent America, a subsidiary of the Gucci Group, to stop selling red-soled shoes in the same select Manhattan stores as he does.

“Defendants’ use of red footwear outsoles that are virtually identical to plaintiffs’ Red Sole Mark is likely to cause and is causing confusion, mistake and deception among the relevant purchasing public,” the suit said.

The suit asks for a U.S. judge to impose $1 million in damages and order YSL to stop manufacturing similar designs.

The Gucci Group was not available for comment and the U.S. branch of Yves Saint Laurent declined comment on the lawsuit.

Since shortly after Louboutin founded his first boutique in 1991 in Paris, the suit said, all his shoes have had red-lacquered soles. They can fetch more than $1,000 a pair.

“The Red Sole has become synonymous with Christian Louboutin and high fashion,” it said, adding that Louboutin had trademarked the design in the United States in 2008.

Kimora Lee Simmons arrived to LAX airport in Los Angeles yesterday April 1, 2011 styled in several different designer brands. She was spotted in a pair of Yves Saint Laurent 6236 sunglasses an Alexander McQueen skull print scarf, a pair of denim studded Christian Louboutin Pigalle spiked denim pumps and she was carrying a cobalt blue Hermes Birkin.
