Anne Hathaway in Lady Dior

I know that Marion Cotillard is now the poster girl for Lady Dior, but no ad campaign is going to change my opinion on this bag. Sure it’s a classic staple that will never go out of style, but I think it’s best kept for the conservative over 60-set. Anna Hathaway looks a bit ridiculous […]

Jessica Kagan “My Other Bag is….”

I accidentally forgot to lock my locker at the gym a few weeks ago and everything (minus sweaty socks and such…), was stolen! Adios Gucci bag, new Polar heart rate monitor, wallet…thankfully I didn’t have my credit cards, license, etc. in my bag but still what an aggravation! Warning even at nicer gyms like Sports […]

Emma Watson’s Dior Oui Ring: Snob or Slob?

Maybe if it were worn next to a “Non” ring I would understand the appeal of the white gold Dior Oui Ring ($675), but as is I simply don’t get it. The popular piece comes in a variety of iterations and is worn above by Emma Watson (it’s hard to spot I know, but trust that it’s there!). While I like the script-shape of the letters, I can’t get over the stupidity of what it says!

Gisele and Charlize in Dior Large Gaucho Tote

I think the Dior Saddle Bag is one of the best, most original designs of all times and every so often I’ll bust my black one out of my closet and wear it out. Anyone else feel like the Saddle will be making a comeback soon? Its been about seven years since its peak…I think […]

Dior “3D” Bag

Leave it to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy to get first dibs on the new must-have Dior bag for fall! France’s First Lady, who will join her husband at the White House for dinner with the Obamas tonight, was photographed with Dior’s new “3D” bag while out and about in New York City over the weekend. Isn’t it […]

Dior Fall 2010

John Galliano is in fine form for fall/winter, expounding on his January couture show to deliver a collection that harked on ever-so familiar territory for the showman. Sending out a historically inspired collection best described as “equestrian-meets-Marie Antoinette-in-the-boudoir romp” and inspired by 18th-century libertine poet John Wilmot and second Earl of Rochester, it was the […]

Dior Fall 2010 Bags

I’ve not been a big fan of Dior bags of late, but I’m really loving what John Galliano has whipped up for fall. While it wasn’t a particularly bag heavy show, I am feeling his new soft, malleable hobo-inspired number complete with ample side ruching and slim CD logo affixed to the side (to be […]

Will Asians save Haute Couture?

Chanel Haute Couture on display at Flagship boutique in Ginza WWD reported this morning that an influx of younger clients from fast-developing Asian markets is helping to lift Europe’s few remaining couture houses. I was not surprised to read that Haute Couture houses are looking at Asia, specifically young Asian women in their 30s-40s, to […]

Dior spring 2010

I am insanely fetishing over these Dior shoes!  Yeah yeah, the dresses are the usual fabulosity frocks that socials will clamor over for events but the shoes are all I care about!  Just look at them, totally and sickeningly gorgeous!  It will be hard to limit myself but I am only going to order one […]
