Marni Flap bag

There’s another celebrity ‘IT’ bag which is popping up on the shoulders of many young starlets and that’s the Marni ‘Flap’ bag.

The bag, which hails from the brand’s Resort and Spring 2013 collection, is the chic, urban go-to bag to add an edge to celebrities’ off-duty looks.

Jessica Alba and Emma Roberts prefer the two-tone version with a studded flap, while Rashida Jones and Amanda Seyfried’s Marni ‘Flap’ bag of choice has a studded shoulder strap.

Both versions come in a selection of fresh, clean colours in fabrics varying from lambskin to French calf leather.

With or without studs, the bag embodies modern elegance.

Celeb Love Alexander McQueen's Heroine Bag

Hollywood A-listers such as Zoe Saldana, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Chastain and Amanda Seyfried have all been spotted carrying Alexander McQueen’s ‘IT’ bag – the Heroine.

They love the ‘Heroine’ tote, which is constructed from flawless leather and finished with gold hardware, as it embodies the precision, craftsmanship and attention to detail which are true qualities of any Alexander McQueen piece.

One of Asia’s favourite stars, Yao Chen, has been spotted carrying the same bag in a pretty blush-pink version from the Resort 2013 collection.

Her sturdy, functional tote in an uber-girlie colour was worn with a nubby knit sweater, uber-cool skinny leather pants, Isabel Marant ‘Stuart’ studded pumps and a gold pendant necklace.

The colourful cap with a pom-pom accent adds a cool quirk to her look.

Celebs Love Louis Vuitton Check Print 1

‘Check’ marks the spot when it comes to Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2013 entree, starting with Marc Jacobs’ happy yellow and white checkered runway and continuing with his checquerboard of mini, midi and maxi dresses—and more.

But the real end game? The celebrity pretties who have been bold enough to embrace the graphic grid.

Actresses Kristen Stewart, Berenice Bejo and Hailee Steinfeld were early wearers of the trend, snatching their short, leggy interpretations straight from the runway.

Kristen and Hailee both took a youthful approach with their trendy rompers, and I liked how Berenice added a pop of colour with her red heel.

Going for a more glam spin, the statuesque Elettra Wiedemann pulled off a jumpsuit that worked because of her model height. ‘Django Unchained’ actress Kerry Washington debuted a lovely white and ivory exit at a photocall, all tied up with a bow. And Kirsten Dunst strutted out one of the column gowns, using the 2013 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala to make her mark.

Celebrities Love Hologram Accessories

Hologram accessories are slowing becoming a huge trend on the red carpet, which is not surprising considering how many runways this iridescent fabric – which reflects a kaleidoscope of rainbow-like colours – has appeared on.

Olivier Theyskens for Theyskens Theory, Christopher Bailey for Burberry, Alexander Wang, Jonathan Saunders, Blumarine, Hussein Chalayan, Hugo Boss, and Stella McCartney have kick started this burgeoning red carpet trend.

Early adopters include Kate Moss, who was spotted carrying a hologram Stella McCartney clutch, as was Rita Ora with matching pumps, and last week Pixie Geldof sported a pair of hologram pumps.

You too can incorporate this futuristic, hypnotic trend into your closet now to give your look a fashion-forward feel.

Back in July, Kylie Minogue was the first celeb spotted carrying Nina Ricci’s latest ‘IT’ bag, the ‘La Rue’.

Since then, many of our other favourite stars have been spotted carrying the coveted bag, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Olivia Palermo and Katie Holmes.

The ‘La Rue’, which looks like an elegant bowling bag, comes in three sizes in calfskin, python and limited-edition crocodile.

Referred to as ‘made for real urban lifestyles yet blended with the feminine refinement which is the house’s hallmark’, the roomy bag with soft handles adds a punch to any look.

Move over, maxi coats. For warding off winter chills without skimping on style, celebrities on both sides of the pond are going sans sleeves in an assortment of capes.

Gwen Stefani kick started the trend on a recent trip to London, selecting a black Holmes & Yang cape with her black-and-white windowpane-check Michael Kors ensemble. In typical Gwen style, she added some tomboy flair with a slightly askew captain’s cap, lending the look a Modish feel.

Stateside, Lucy Liu took flight in a double-breasted feather-print trompe l’oeil Roberto Cavalli Fall 2012 cape. With so much to engage the eye, Lucy was right to slip on Roland Mouret’s understated black column gown underneath.

Back in London, Anne Hathaway channeled her inner diva, appearing positively operatic in a sapphire silk Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 cape at the ‘Les Miserables’ after-party last week. With its prim collared closure, this epauletted version demurely revealed Anne’s Altuzarra dress.

Farther north, Nicole Scherzinger covered up in Jan Ghandour’s cardinal-red style cape for an X-Factor press conference in Manchester. Thierry Mugler-esque, croc-embossed sculpted shoulders added edge to the luxuriant drape of the cape’s cashmere body; Gareth Pugh leather leggings, metal-toe Carvela heels, and a sleek ponytail underscored Nicole’s Bladerunner sensibility here.

Hollywood’s outerwear du jour resurfaced in Gotham on Tuesday, first on Jessica Biel caught running errands with her gold and green-trimmed Fendi crossbody bag, then seen again on Anne Hathaway—this time a Gucci buckled and flouncy cape—over a glittery Nina Ricci number for the Museum Of Moving Image salutes Hugh Jackman event.

When bundling up, there’s no question that a quick fastening at the neck is far more convenient than trying to stuff one’s arms into narrow coat sleeves, but who here best embodied this bicoastal trend?
