Celebrities Love M2Malletier Bags

Amid the crush of LVs, Chanels, Guccis and Ferragamos found on the arms of starlets everywhere is a bold newcomer on the scene. Modish mavens are clutching M2Malletier handbags, making them one of the hottest new accessories that have swiftly vaulted from near anonymity to celeb status.

Sleek meets street in these satchels, which are instantly recognizable for their architectural quality and geometric lines, not to mention the true hallmark of the label—its distinctive hardware. The shiny gold, silver or onyx bar handles on each design were originally inspired by medieval tools and armor.

The duo behind the wonder bags, Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez, envisioned a brand that preserved their Colombian roots, while infusing a sense of sophistication and spontaneity in the trend-forward designs.

With their classic yet avant-garde angles, it’s no wonder celebrities are swooping up multiple M2Malletiers, including the popular ‘La Fleur Du Mal’ model along with the ‘Fabricca,’ ‘Amor Fati’ and ‘La Collectioneuse.’ Luxe materials and progressive colours ranging from rich coral to royal purple and light avocado, along with timeless shades of black, camel, cream and dove-grey, also make a M2Malletier a must-have.

Emma Watson, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes, Cate Blanchett, Solange Knowles, Kate Hudson and Taylor Swift are just a few of the bold names carrying the neat little purse that effortlessly transitions from edgy ensembles to girly, flirty looks and more formal entrances.

Kerry Bishé In Fitriani & Georges Hobeika - 'Halt & Catch Fire' Photocall & MIPTV Opening Party

Kerry Bishé attended the ‘Halt & Catch Fire’ photo call and MIPTV opening party on Monday (April 7) in Cannes, France, where the New Zealand actress debuted two different looks.

‘Halt & Catch Fire’ Photocall: Posing at the Hotel Majestic Jetty, she wore a Fitriani midnight-navy sheath dress, swirled in a futuristic, artsy print. She punched up the kaleidoscope impact even further with the addition of bold chartreuse Kurt Geiger pumps, finishing the ensemble with a few Swarovski rings, a pretty pink lip and loose curls.

MIPTV 2014 Opening Party: Donning a far more romantic and formal look, she changed into a Georges Hobeika lavender confection for the opening event at the Hotel Martinez. The quietly graceful gown had just the right amount of edge with its sheer bodice of layered strips of fabric and a thin magenta belt to accent the flowing silhouette. She accessorized with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, sparkling Carolee earrings and a beige Oroton clutch, which I found rather outsized and distracting for this softer statement.

Julianne Moore In Balenciaga - 'A Raisin In The Sun' Broadway Opening Night

Julianne Moore stood hand-in-hand with her husband, Bart Freundlich, at the Broadway opening night for ‘A Raisin In The Sun’ on April 3 at The Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York City.

Opting for a simple, all-black statement, the actress paired her Balenciaga Resort 2014 cape-sleeve blouse with slim black J Brand jeans.

With the top’s quietly significant silhouette and cutout back, this look was all about restrained drama.

Given the minimal jewels and barely-there makeup, save for a petal-pink glossy lip, I’m glad she added some oomph to the relaxed-chic vibe via Tabitha Simmons ‘Josephina’ elaphe pumps.

Kate Upton In Fendi - 'The Other Woman' Munich Premiere

Kate Upton joined Cameron Diaz at ‘The Other Woman’ Munich premiere, hosted at the Mathaeser Filmpalast in Germany on Monday (April 7).

Taking a page from Cameron’s style book, the model-actress also flaunted her legss in a Fendi Spring 2014 dress embossed with a digital circuitry-inspired pattern.

But the real story here was the rush of drama created by that hot-ruby hue that Kate worked to perfection, further emboldening her look with an intensely crimson lip and retro bombshell waves.

Preferring not to continue the matchy-matchy effect all the way from top to toe, Kate finished the look with a simple pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

You may remember that Emma Roberts previously wore this Fendi number at the Vanity Fair Oscars party. Just as good the second time around?

Rashida Jones In Erdem - Watch What Happens Live

Rashida Jones chatted with Andy Cohen on his show, ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ on Sunday (April 6).

Wearing an Erdem Pre-Fall 2014 navy sheer overlay frock, featuring a white collar and mini floral embellishment, the actress worked the schoolgirl-charm angle.

What really enhanced her dress were those Rupert Sanderson’s gold metallic ‘Elba’ pumps, which provided just the right amount of added personality and flash.

A pretty pink lip and flushed cheek, alongside relaxed waves, completed the look along with EFFY Jewelry and Rose + Stone ‘Claw’ ring.
