Celebrities Love The Anya Hindmarch ‘Bruton’ Tote

I have never been tempted to own a white bag, especially after ruining my tri-colour Celine ‘Boston’ canvas tote with both black and blue dye from my jeans, but this chic Anya Hindmarch ‘Bruton’ tote is seriously making me rethink things.

I love the clean lines and minimal design of the buttery soft leather tote, which screams classic luxury.

It adds a lot of style to both Olivia Palermo’s and Jessica Alba’s off-duty looks.

As I can’t live without a big bag to carry my life in, I’m seduced by how roomy the structured tote is.

Much like any Anya Hindmarch piece, this tote has quirky touches, with labelled pockets for your ‘Bits & Bobs’, ‘Lipstick’, ‘Music’ and your ‘Phone’.

As Olivia Palermo was spotted carrying her tote in New York City yesterday, styling her look with a Bensoni fur gilet over a sweater, which she paired with Daryl K leather pants and Lanvin two-tone high-top sneakers, I’m sure the bag will sell out soon.

You can buy this Anya Hindmarch ‘Bruton’ tote from my-wardrobe.com, Saks.com and farfetch.com in white.
Net-A-Porter.com has the same tote in black.

Celebrities Love The Pajama Trend

The verdict is in: you hate the pajama trend judging by your reaction to Rihanna’s Emilio Pucci look on the red carpet at the ‘Battleship’ Japan premiere yesterday.

Well I’m sorry to disappoint, but the trend, which has replaced the traditional suit, appears to be hotting up, because celebs and fashionistas alike are loving the easy just-got-out-of-bed look which pays homage to Hugh Hefner’s favourite attire.

Rihanna follows a long line of PJ-loving ladies including Elisa Sednaoui, Salma Hayek, Ulyana Sergeenko, Sofia Coppola, Viviana Volpicella, Marina Larroudé and Caroline Sieber who have all been working traditional sleepwear into luxurious daytime attire.

The look is so hot Sofia and Caroline have worn the same Louis Vuitton Resort 2012 set.

Of this crew of lovelies I think Elisa worked her look best. The sequined blazer and the tighter fit makes the look less obvious, but I have to say I love them all (sans Salma – sorry Salma).

I think the key to pulling off this trend and not appearing like you’re out sleepwalking whilst at a dinner, a red-carpet event or the streets of New York or London, is to wear the PJs with heels.

As chic as Sofia looks, I think the slippers are a step too far for you non-believers.

Wanna jump on the PJ trend? Here are three looks to try.

Marc Jacobs Loves His Comme des Garçons Dresses

We’ve seen Marc Jacobs don kilts several times, but yesterday he wore two Comme des Garçons Spring 2012 dresses.

The first black dress was worn when he took his bow for Louis Vuitton after his Fall 2012 presentation, the second time he wore pink whilst attending the ‘Louis Vuitton – Marc Jacobs: The Exhibition’ that same evening.

Both Comme des Garçons t-shirt dresses were paired with black pirate shoes with an embellished buckle from his Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 collection.

Kanye West has been known to rock a kilt.

Is a dress next on his agenda too?

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.
