Spring 2013 Paris Fashion Week Roundup: Part Two

  It’s only fitting that Fashion Week closes in Paris. It’s where everything, every runway and every new trend culminates in a delicate, deliberate mash-up. There’s no obvious rhyme or reason, and that’s one of the reasons we can’t get enough: I love a gutsy, bright multi-exotic shoulder bag as much as I love a […]

The Five Essentials Featuring Jane Keltner de Valle:

Jane Keltner de Valle and I only recently met (at my dear friend Bryan Boy‘s ANTM premiere in NYC last month!) but we have known of each other for years (thanks to social media, everyone knows everyone in fashion). Her fresh-faced beauty struck me immediately. Add her enviable height to the elegant equation, and the born-and-bred-New […]

Eva Longoria Carries Céline: Easy Landing

Breezing into LAX on August 10th, Eva Longoria nailed uncannily fresh travel dressing. With a cream-and-tan palette of her favorite Henry & Belle jeans, in their signature straight cut, Stylestalker Macaroon sweater, Christian Louboutin sandals, and enameled Hermès Clic-Clac H bracelet, Céline’s two-tone Cabas tote makes for an ideal second carryon. Topped with an incognito fedora and shades, this puts most other airport ensembles […]

Resort 2013 Collections: Sleek is the Word

Resort ’13 is anything but predictable. From sleek and chic to kaleidoscope-induced patterns, you can take it from one extreme to the next with a quick switch of clutch. What’s your poison? Givenchy indulges in another round of wild prints, this time with gypsy-luxe scarf patterns and wildly ornate embellishments taking over. Transfixing, yes, and […]

Miranda Kerr Carries Céline: An Unstoppable Pair

The shorter the shorts, the bigger the tote. Or sobagmething like that. Out for a stroll with hubby, Orlando Bloom, in NYC on June 25th, the Aussie model showed a keen way with proportion play. Tie-dyed Isabel Marant shorts plus a sheer, long-sleeved tee plus floral pumps plus one very desirable black Céline Cabas Phantom […]

Best of European Resort 2013 Collections: Euro Trip

The European Resort collections: I could liken them to a surprise dessert, brought out on the house at a five-star restaurant. A little unexpected and thoroughly delectable (even though, after numerous courses of seasonal collections, you know you probably don’t need more treats!). This year, I’ve narrowed it down the crème de la crème. Here’s […]

The Celine Luggage Tote: What Makes A Legend

Unstoppable. Ubiquitous, without feeling tired. Soon-to-be iconic. These are the most accurate ways to describe the Celine Luggage tote. Released too long ago (back in 2010) to still be in the “trend” zone, this bag, as determined as it is covetable, knows no bounds. If you ask me – and pretty much any celebrity in the Western […]

The Five Essentials Featuring Shiva Rose:

The lovely Shiva Rose is as well known for her eclectic-vintage LA style as she is for her longtime marriage to actor Dylan McDermott. Since the divorce, she has not just been keeping herself busy, she’s proven herself to be a veritable renaissance woman, with a refreshing lifestyle site, The Local Rose, and roles in […]

Dakota Fanning Totes Céline for Off-Day Chic

Though it has by no means entered “vintage” territory, it’s safe to say that the Céline Luggage tote has seen its day of It-bag stardom…and what a day it was! But that doesn’t mean it’s time to toss the beloved bag to the curb. Classic and relatively simplistic, it still looks as chic as ever, […]
