My first Prada bag was a nylon backpack with gold chains. I wore that thing everywhere, even to class (a student needs a backpack, no?). I was so obsessed with these bags that they were one of the main topics of conversation with my girlfriends every day.
When it comes to bucket bags, the pendulum swings back and forth on the age-old shape, from petite and sweet to bigger and boxier to as streamlined possible. However it’s approached, the bucket bag is not an easy style to carry off. The key to success is in keeping it small (to avoid awkward slouching and general sloppiness). Now Prada has revamped the style for 2014.
Remember when we all gasped at Lupita N’yongo’s stunning Golden Globes’ gown (and pretty much every other time she appeared anywhere)? The woman behind that look – as well as those of Michelle Dockery – is Micaela Erlanger. She’s the stylist to the stars – and the best-dressed ones at that!
