Celebrities Love…Burberry Prorsum’s Tonal Raffia Bowling Bag

Two stylish mothers have been spotted carrying the Burberry tonal raffia bowling bag from the Resort 2012 collection.

Beyonce Knowles was the first to fall for this striking bag whilst leaving Sakura Nails in New York City late last year.

Next up was Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr who was spotted carrying the same bag whilst leaving the Sydney Opera House in Australia following rehearsals of her role at the inaugural AACTA Awards last week.

The bag features a tonal raffia body with contrasting leather trim, a top zip closure, rolled leather handles, and polished metal D-rings for shoulder straps.

You can purchase Beyonce and Miranda’s Burberry Prorsum bag from Saks.com.

Celebrities Love…Leather Sleeves

With the holidays right around the corner, here’s a trend to put at the top of your wish list: the leather-sleeved coat/jacket.

Leather is a chic yet rough fabric that adds edge to even the most feminine pieces.

Both on and off the red carpet, celebrities like Zoe Saldana, Ciara, Elizabeth Olsen and Rihanna have been spotted wearing this sleek and sophisticated look.

The trend was big on the Fall 2011 runway at The Row, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Zero + Maria Cornejo.

Pair your leather sleeves with simple jeans like Zoe did in her Roland Mouret jacket or toughen the look up in head-to-toe black like Rihanna in Givenchy.

Elizabeth Olsen dressed up her Helmut Lang number with a Preen skirt and heels.

The fur accents on Ciara’s Helmut Lang jacket add a chic winter vibe to the trend.

Celebrities Love…Coloured Leather Coats

As winter quickly approaches, celebs know that it’s all about the right coat.

However, a basic trench isn’t going to cut it.

Instead, fashionistas are all about coloured leather coats. While leather may not be the warmest fabric, it sure does look super chic.

The piece may have a luxe look, but it’s also very versatile. So, it comes as no surprise that this trend has been seen on and off the red carpet.

Since this isn’t your typical black coat, avoid looking too costumey by not wearing matching coloured heels à la Lady Gaga. Instead, try black boots like Rachel Zoe.

You can also take a cue from Blake Lively and step foot into the wild side by teaming it with snakeskin heels.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley kept her look simple with a rock n’ roll edge by adding leather pants.

It’s not that ease to find coloured leather coats, but we found these three.

Celebrities Love…Antonio Berardi

Based on the red-carpet choices of Hollywood’s best dressed recently, the designer of the moment is Antonio Berardi.

From Olivia Wilde to Eva Longoria, celebs are crazy for Berardi’s figure-hugging dresses and creative work with unique fabrics and techniques. With his self-proclaimed ‘striking, classical, dressed-up’ aesthetic, Berardi definitely knows how to make a woman look – and feel – beautiful.

Berardi grabbed our attention early on this season when Rihanna arrived for her UK Reb’l Fleur fragrance launch in a bright aqua look.

For an outfit that could so easily err on the side of ‘Muppet-esque’, Rihanna landed on the top of nearly every best dressed list that week (including ours), thanks to the excellent fit and ease of Berardi’s design.

Kate Bosworth was uber chic in a black embellished LBD. The always-stunning Zoe Saldana has already sported two white mini-dresses from the Spring 2012 collection, achieving that modest sexiness most dresses only dream of, while the equally gorgeous Freida Pinto chose an armour-inspired architectural gown for the ‘Immortals’ red carpet.

Sarah Jessica Parker, who is always a fan of impeccably tailored, lady-like pieces and apparently Berardi biggest fan, donned a marble-print ensemble back in September, along with a beautifully shaped black crochet gown on the red carpet.

She then fell in love with the Spring 2012 collection, first appearing at a New York City gala in a Spring 2012 dress-coat (paired with tights and Manolos, of course) and just last week she wore a different pair of Manolos for a day at the races in Melbourne, Australia, wearing a tailored silver Berardi coat.

With so much Berardi popping up on the red carpet lately, we cannot wait until awards season kicks in – stylists, take note.

These dresses are the perfect balance of figure-flattering and fashion-forward – we can totally see why celebs love them (and for the record, so do we).

Celebrities Love…Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 Heels

Celebrities have been quicker to snap up the Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 collection shoes than the dresses and trench coats.

Leighton Meester, aka the girl with the best shoe closet in Hollywood, was the first to don these heavenly Burberry Prorsum Verulam beaded leather sandals two months ago.

Asian actress Qin Hailu opted for the blue beaded heels, and Solange Knowles became the first celeb to wear these coveted heels two weeks ago at the Burberry Body Launch event.

The tribal-inspired heels with a bold, chunky yellow-and-orange wooden beaded detailing was added to Net-A-Porter.com’s US site today.

Hopefully the rest of us won’t have to wait long for these heels to become available on Net-A-Porter’s international site.

Celebrities Love…Isabel Marant Dicker Suede Ankle Boots

Isabel Marant ‘Dicker’ ankle booties have been worn by a bevy of beauties—we’re talking Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hilary Rhoda, Kate Bosworth and Katie Holmes.

These boots have been a complete hit because they are one part chic and one part edgy.

The suede shoes have become one of the must-have items of casual footwear for fall. But the great thing about them is that they can also be worn during the spring and summer with cutoff shorts like Katie, or a floral dress like Hilary.

The coveted Isabel Marant booties will set you back $615. That is if you can still find them in stores because most of the shops are sold out.

Fortunately, a similar and cheaper version by Steve Madden was created.

The ‘Pembrook’ booties cost only $129.

However, you may notice that the wallet-friendly design has a less pointy toe and lacks the chunky heels as well, which is what gives them that tough-chick vibe.

Celebrities Love…Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ Flats

Smoking flats à la Hugh Hefner are making their mark as the flats to wear this fall. However, there’s one particular pair that has caught the attention of some of the most fashionable ladies. Enter the Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ Flats.

Katy Perry, Alexa Chung and Sarah Jessica Parker have all been spotted wearing these adorable feline flats recently. While we would expect quirky Alexa and Katy to sport them, it came as a bit of a surprise to see SJP wearing them, too.

The black velvet pair has a gold heel, which I think would look great with a pair of skinny jeans. Although I wouldn’t have thought to wear these during the nighttime, Alexa’s red-hot Valentino dress actually looks quite nicely teamed with the shoes.

If you want to step into the wild side a little further, these kitty shoes also come in a leopard print.

However, we prefer the black versions; which do you prefer?

You can buy these cute Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ Flats from Net-A-Porter.com.
