Celebrities Love Lee Savage Clutches

It’s been a while since a clutch took the red carpet by storm. So up step the Lee Savage clutches, most notably the ‘Space’ clutch.

Lee’s minimalist, structural bags are coveted by celebrities such as Diane Kruger, Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth and Karolina Kurkova, to name a few.

Inspired by the minimalist movement of the 60s, Lee Savage clutches represent an evolved intersection between art and fashion, expertly crafted using metal and contrasting elements from mirrors to leather held together on a hinged frame.

Celebrities Love…Lanvin ‘Sugar’ Bag

Celebrities Love The Lanvin 'Sugar' Bag

Starlets have been lavishing special attention on the Lanvin ‘Sugar’ bag, which hails from designer Alber Elbaz’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

It boasts a sweet name, but the purse is far from overly saccharine. The ideal fusion of luxe styling and functional design, the leather shoulder bag has a soft quilted satin finish with a chain-link strap for just the right dash of tough edge.

Its versatility is more than evident among the trendsetters who swing the ‘Sugar’ over their shoulders.

Zoe Saldana attended Cannes Film Festival’s ‘Relativity at Ten’ luncheon with the bottle-green version, adding a sophisticated finish to her vibrant Etro printed dress. Jessica Alba likewise opted for the same coloration, infusing the feminine floral-mesh Tanya Taylor dress with her handbag.

Proving that the ‘Sugar’ can even sweeten a trip to the gym, Diane Kruger matched her red purse to her running shoes, while Sarah Jessica Parker likewise showed that the bottle-green bag looks just as good for a casual, dressed-down stroll around town.

Celebrities Love…Jimmy Choo ‘Marlin’ Boots

Celebrities Love Jimmy Choo 'Marlin' Boots

We know the celebrity set is practically addicted to a skyscraper heel. After all, one of the most ubiquitous shoes seen recently is Stuart Weitzman’s ‘Nudist’ sandals. But, alas, even the starlets cannot survive on stilettos alone.

Enter the Jimmy Choo ‘Marlin’ boot.

It’s the season’s latest style from the CHOO.08 collection of more casual, every-day footwear that still retains the same glam, cool-girl edge for which Jimmy Choo is known.

The black textured leather and spotted snakeskin version of the ankle boots are the epitome of CHOO.08’s laidback yet alluring approach that creative director Sandra Choi envisioned with the collection.

Equipped with a pointy toe and multiple buckles, the ‘Marlins’ boast a retro rock-punk edge that’s classic yet just slightly—delightfully—rebellious.

Amber Heard, Jamie Chung and January Jones are but a few of the stylish lovelies who have been spotted in the shoes, each showing off just how much bold attitude these booties bring.

While they added edge to Amber’s off-duty jacket-and-skinny-pants, the pair couldn’t have provided a more directional, yet sophisticated spin on Jamie’s leather and lace ensemble. And January was thoroughly street-chic in her white message T-shirt, flared denim and cat-eye shades, using her booties to tie together the best of both vintage and modern worlds.

Do the ‘Marlins’ have you hooked?

Celebrities Love…Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ Sandals

Celebrities Love Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' Sandals

Not nearly a day goes by that we don’t see Stuart Weitzman’s ‘Nudist’ sandals taking a stand on the red carpet.

The soles of many a starlet have been strapped into the sleek, sophisticated footwear that exudes a quiet sizzle and evokes a modern minimalist edge.

Barely there, as their name might imply, the 4.5-inch ankle-strap heels come in a range of shades—from subtle black to spotted leopard—making them a versatile pair for nearly any ensemble, from street-chic floral frocks to luncheon garb and soiree-ready gowns.

The leg-lengthening sandals (especially those of the nude colour-way) are an outfit’s best companion, perfectly complementing without outshining the main sartorial attraction.

Some of the biggest fans include Diane Kruger and Emmy Rossum, but stars from Kiernan Shipka to Ashley Madekwe, America Ferrera, Blake Lively, January Jones and Naomie Harris have been spotted in these Stuarts.

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.

Celebrities Love…Denim Overalls

Celebrities Love Denim Overalls

Denim overalls are making a comeback. Even New York magazine thinks so, as cover girl Elisabeth Moss was decked out in them.

Perhaps inspired by the DKNY, Honor Among Thieves and Ralph Lauren Spring 2014 runways, Selena Gomez, Diane Kruger, Sarah Jessica Parker and Julianne Hough are all opting for the new summer staple, which is easy, relaxed and cool.

Selena paired her Black Orchid distressed overalls with a cute floral bandeau, a white Versace bag and Chelsea Paris heels.

Diane’s effortless look was styled with a simple tank and given a high-end spin with Chanel dual-colour flats.

SJP added shades of grey to her Blank NYC overalls, while Julianne Hough layered up her Wildfox Couture ‘Chloe’ overalls, accessorizing with ShoeMint flats, AM Eyewear sunglasses, and a Cynthia Vincent bag.

All these ladies leaned towards the casual side but there are also ways to add a dash of smart sophistication to the look, with a tailored blazer and a pair of sexy heels.

For an edgier take, don’t be afraid to layer over just a crop top.

Will you be donning denim overalls this spring, or this lifetime?

Celebrities Love…Sheer Hems

Celebrities Love Sheer HemsThe legs have it—at least when it comes to the latest trend in transparency . We’ve seen the see-through gowns and the peek-a-boo paneling that have permeated many a red carpet. But, now, specifically sheer hemlines are having their own moment, too, with starlets already taking cues from the Spring 2014 runways.

When applied correctly, this diaphanous design detail adds a modern edge to an otherwise classic dress. The see-through hem whispers of both sultriness and sophistication, adding a measure of chic intrigue to a starlet’s statement look.

At the Rome Film Festival, Rooney Mara cut things short with her delicate, yet structured white Balenciaga design. Take away the more elegant organza overlay, and this would have been a way-too-short mini.

Meta Golding edged it up at ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Madrid premiere, donning a laser-cut leather Loewe frock that not only featured a sheer hem, but extended the trend to the sleeves and back.

Like Rooney, Amy Adams wore a shorter sheer hemline that was tacked onto her monochromatic David Koma dress at the ‘American Hustle’ L.A. screening.

As for ‘Downton Abbey’ actress Laura Carmichael, she debuted a more demure version of the trend with her Richard Nicoll midnight-blue dress that was just subtly sheer at the bottom.

Sheer genius, or already sick of see-through?
