Have you noticed all the interest in gray hair this month? First, Vogue taps quirky model fave Kristen McMenamy to appear in a huge fashion spread shot by David Sims, and then Lady Gaga shows up on the Nick Knight-shot cover of the September issue of Vanity Fair also sporting long, gray tresses. Kelly Osbourne has even been seen around town in a light gray/lavender ‘do, adding to the notion that the color isn’t just for high-end magazine shoots.
While I absolutely loved the McMenamy shoot and really like the Gaga cover, it’s not necessarily easy to pull off this look in real life. So why not just invest in a gorgeous gray bag and call it a day? Here are my Friday favorites for this week:
Chanel Gray Distressed Lambskin Quilted Large Classic Reissue Double Flap Bag. Just a perfect, classic bag in a very chic shade of gray. Want. This. Bag.
Alexander McQueen Flapper Shoulder Bag. The perfect boho chic summer tote. The strap is adjustable for easy cross-body carrying.
Zac Posen Grey Leather Daisy Shoulder Bag. The chunky gold chain and leather detailing make this bag totally unique.
This picture really says it all, folks. When Barbara Walters is competing with Lady Gaga for title of “Most Accessorized”, you know that a trend has really hit its peak. (But before we talk baubles, let me point out that Babs is 80 YEARS OLD. Amazing. This woman must have the fountain of youth bottled!)
Gaga chose to go with a huge crystal brooch and lots of feathers and flowers for her sitdown on Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009. Barbara chose an enormous necklace with two strands and a drop along with a huge butterfly belt. This is probably the tamest I’ve ever seen Gaga, and you know what? I like it. She looks like a lady that still has some edge. Barbara, on the other hand, made a mistake in my opinion with the belt and the necklace–the two are competing for our attention.
