Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” – must be screamed with as much passion as Marlon Brando does in the classic movie, A Streetcar Named Desire. Stella McCartney please, unchain my heart and wallet from this gorgeous bag you’ve designed! But, my dear and fellow vegan, more than a thousand dollars for a bag that’s not even real leather? Ummm, on what planet does this happen? Oh yeah… how could I forget, the planet named Hollywood!

I don’t know that I would advocate purchasing a huge neon green bag but a small brightly colored purse is something I can definitely get behind. You may initially shy away from wearing a turquoise or hot pink handbag, but trust me when I say that it will quickly become almost like a neutral in your closet. There to jazz up any subdued outfit or pair of jeans. I love Marc Jacobs‘ The Single Quilted bag for this purpose because it comes in super fun colors but in a very classic shape. I particularly like the hot pink color (as seen on Whitney Port below) but the purple would also be great. Now, I’ll be right here when you feel like buying me an early birthday present.

ModCloth Love is a Bag-lefield Bag

ModCloth‘s Love is a Bag-lefield bag (don’t they come up with the cutest product names?) is what we’re calling an MJ meets Chanel love-child. The shape of the bag and the studs is fairly identical to Whitney’s MJ above, but the chain/leather strap is very Chanel-esque. I love this bag. For $43.99, I kinda feel like everyone should pick this one up. The hot pink works especially well during summer months and I say splurge on a great black bag; skimp on the brightly colored, fun one!

I’m always happy to see celebrities wearing accessible fashion, especially when they’re hitting the red carpet. Selena Gomez did just that by opting for a Balmain-ish ASOS black frock ($146.54) which she paired with a pair of steep Giuseppe Zanotti chiffon sandals ($850) at the GRAMMY Nominations Concert a few days ago. Well, you can’t expect a celeb going budget fashion head-to-toe I guess.

How cute is Dakota Fanning? Just too cute for words and so is her outfit! I must admit, I love leopard print and I love the fact that young Ms. Fanning, has developed a style all her own. She manages to mix 4 styles seamlessly. A little punk-boots and black tights, some school girl with an a-line mini skirt, old Hollywood retro sunglasses and a touch of glam with the leopard print jacket. From North Dakota (her head) to South Dakota (her feet), I think this is a perfect overall look for a young starlet!
