Mom-to-be Malin Akerman Rocks a Black Outfit with a Geometric Clutch

Dec 3 2012

Actress and model Malin Akerman shows how pregnancy becomes her as she attends the 2013 Miss Golden Globe Awards at Cecconi’s in L.A., California wearing an all-black ensemble accessorized with an eye-catching orange, white and black geometric foldover clutch.

While we can’t see her baby bump here, Malin was positively glowing and looked ultra chic as she took the plunge in a textured Barbara Bui blazer with capped sleeves. She paired it with skinny black leather pants and black pumps.

I personally love the look of an all-black outfit partnered with a statement clutch which Malin deftly pulled off. The clutch is said to be a Barbara Bui creation as well (we have yet to confirm this) and it was a perfect contrast to her color of choice. Fully beaded with leather trim at the sides, the geometric foldover is retro-edgy, truly one clutch we’d like to have and hold.

Looking for a similar bag? I’ve selected some fashionable printed clutches that are worth a look:

David Hicks for Tila March Zelig Clutch, $159 (was $270)

Fendi Women’s ‘Forever-Techno’ Multicolored Zuccino Pouchette, $249.99 (was $375)

Kate Bosworth Carries Dainty Ribbon Clutch by Prabal Gurung

Nov 30 2012
The Target and Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection Launch Event, New York, 28 Nov 2012

Kate Bosworth was a vision in black and white at the red carpet launch of the Target-Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection in New York a few days ago. The lovely actress wore an Emilio Pucci white satin peplum cocktail dress, Alexandra Mor earrings, black Proenza Schouler shoes and a Prabal Gurung clutch.

The Prabal Gurung creation caught my eye not only because Kate did a great job wearing it, but because of the tiny ribbon accents, dots and stitch detail that make the bag elegant and girly at the same time. I don’t have the specs of the clutch yet but it comes with a strap as well:

I’m glad that this designer clutch is so affordable. Of course, that’s what the Target-Neiman Marcus collaboration is all about — to offer designer items at affordable prices just in time for Christmas!

On a side note, the Target-Neiman Marcus partnership is pretty interesting. I’m sure many shoppers would be on a buying frenzy because of the stores’ 50-piece collection featuring 24 top designers. Items go from clothes, accessories, home decor and everything in between. These giftables will be available at the Neiman Marcus and Target websites starting December 1.

Trend Spotting: Hologram Clutch on Rita Ora

Nov 30 2012

Remember the blog entry we wrote on Stella McCartney’s hologram clutch? We spotted the same bag on Rita Ora during the 2012 British Fashion Awards held recently at The Savoy in London. She attended the event to support her model pal Cara Delevingne who was awarded Model of the Year.

The Brit singer was in head to toe Stella McCartney, who incidentally won Designer of the Year as well as Designer Brand at the fashion awards. Rita matched her white knitted top and pants with the hologram clutch and iridescent platforms.

The Hot Right Now singer was seen leaving the hotel and retouching her makeup while flashing her clutch after the awards night. With its sheen and structure, the hologram foldover is truly one attention-grabbing clutch!
