We’ve already shared part one of our series on iconic handbags and what they say about their owners. Below you’ll find the second installment of the series. Stay tuned for the third and final portion, to be published in the coming days.
About the Bag: The Lady Dior bag is easily one of the most recognizable handbags in the world not just for its stand-out style, but because it was carried Princess Diana herself. In fact, it was Princess Diana who catapulted the bag (hers was a black leather with luxe stitching) into fame. As a thank you, Dior renamed the bag after Diana and since then it’s been considered one of the most iconic handbags produced by the fashion house.
Celebs Who Carry It: Mischa Barton, Olsen Twins, Blake Lively
What it Says About You: More petite than some, the Lady Dior bag packs a lot of style prowess within its tiny frame. The same can be said of its wearer. Women who choose the Lady Dior bag are often girly and sweet, but not sickeningly so. This perfect combination of feminine and strong makes for an approachable, friendly woman who’s proud of her accomplishments.
About the Bag: At only seven years old, the Chloe Paddington has already made quite a name for itself. Its considered a must-own bag for anyone who knows anything about bags and blends seamlessly into myriad wardrobes. From boho princesses to Western-inspired femmes to biker chic chicks, the Chloe Paddington is a hard-to-find bag adored by a wide spectrum of women.
Celebs Who Carry It: Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Kate Bosworth, Jessica Simpson
What it Says About You: Anyone who chooses the Chloe Paddington clearly has her nose in fashion magazines on a regular basis. Still, she’s often down to earth and carefree with an easy sense of style. Chloe Paddington owners aren’t afraid of a pair of jeans and are known for their pragmatic tendencies and genial dispositions.
About the Bag: The compact Chanel 2.55 may be small in size, but it’s big in the style world. It was designed by fashion darling Coco Chanel in 1955 and features a slick, quilted leather exterior and chain for hands-free carrying. Even though the bag is nearly 60 years old, it’s never gone out of style and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.
Celebs Who Carry It: Lauren Conrad, Katy Perry, Jessica Biel, Nicole Richie
What it Says About You: The bag itself is timeless and fuss-free, but never blends in with the crowd. Women who choose the Chanel 2.55 are likely multi-taskers who are always on the run, but want to make sure they look good tending to their errands. They also value function just as much as style and appreciate that this bag goes from the office to the grocery to a formal event with ease.

Bad news, we have to look like Blake Lively
I get my beauty news on WWD. Don’t get me wrong. I check Vogue, Allure, InStyle like any other gal out there, but I get my news on WWD. I came across an article on the shift in traditional notion of beauty that is emerging out of Hollywood, while checking out their beauty section last Friday.
I am used to WWD observing trends in beauty treatments or makeup, not in the medical field, but I guess PR companies share clients. Magazines establish relationships with PR companies, and end up covering things out of their realm of interest from time to time. One day I will share with you my theory on why bloggers are not the only ones to be blamed for advertorials.
Today I share the idea behind this article: Hollywood’s ideal is approaching something more human. The Barbie ideal makes room for a combination of Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Blake Lively. Well, let’s make this clear. Natural women are not the new norm, but the procedures are more refined and the results more settled. It is not that we are now allowed to let ourselves go – be old and wrinkled and not care about it. It’s just that we need more money, and employ better plastic surgeons, dermatologists, aestheticians, dentists, makeup artist and stylists.
This reminds me of a caricature I received from a friend years ago, after I moved to America.
