Bag Lust: The Yves Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc Tote

I do lust over designer handbags a lot and my latest obsession is Yves Saint Laurent’s Cabas Chyc leather tote that just exudes Parisian chic. Why am I loving this bag so much? Well for a tote I want a classic shape, something that it is sturdy and roomy, has a touch of elegance, and most of all something that can bridge the gap between casual to smart and everything in between *not asking for a lot then!*. Plus it is essential that a day tote is versatile.

The YSL Cabas Chyc certain is that. This roomy bag has a class about it, I love that the logo is a subtle ‘Y’, which doubles up as the buckle. I also appreciate a tote that can work in some many colours – this bag comes in every shade from the classic black, dark brown and beige, to vibrant red, magenta and ocean blue hues, and even has a subtle black leopard print and a very youthful black denim tote, which has a certain charm about it.

Don’t just take my word for it, this gorgeous tote seems to be the latest celebrity ‘It’ bag, seen on the arms of the likes of Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester, Aussie popstar Kylie Minogue, as well as Rihanna and the always stylish Sienna Miller. It also seems to be the go-to handbag for Hollywood elite as well as the Cabas Chyc has also been spotted with Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, and Salma Hayek.

The celebs may all go for the black and brown versions, which are great wardrobe staples and if you are going to spend over a thousand  pounds on a designer bag that then is probably the best to go for. But for me, I am just so in love with the midnight blue shade above, I don’t know why but this colour just looks so gorgeous against the gold accents, also I think it would work nicely with black, vibrant prints as well as a camel trench for the ultimate Parisian outfit. But at £1,195 from Net-a-Porter I better get saving!!!

Video Loving: Armani and Rihanna Get Sexy

Seriously only Rihanna could make changing into jeans on the backseat of a car sexy!!! Armani have released a black and white film noir-inspired video shot by Steven Klein featuring their latest celebrity ambassador, Rihanna to celebrate the launch of their new global flagship, Armani.com.

Captured against a backdrop of garage walls and car seats in New York, this is one sexy and sultry flick, but what shines most for me has to be Rihanna’s Skin song as the backing track *need to download NOW!*.

I have to be honest, part of me is wondering whether it could have been any model doing a striptease for this video, I am not sure other than the fab backing track what Rihanna really brought to this, but on the other side I just love the sexy vibe and the drama of what’s in the bag!

What is clear is that it seems that Armani is sticking with its black and white, pull jeans over underwear approach as it is the same concept that previous celeb ambassador Megan Fox was seen doing for her campaign, which I actually preferred.

So which corner are you in RiRi or Foxy?

Armani Campaign: Rihanna Works A Blond Pixie

I drooled over the new Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans campaigns from Rafael Nadal, but for the much anticipated Rihanna campaign shots I have to admit I did a double take she looks so different, and in some shots a little unrecognisable.

I know Rihanna does love changing her hair, but wow this platinum blond pixie look changes her dramatically. The shots are extremely sexy, I do think they look gorgeous with her being lit only by the headlights of the cars that she is draped in/over, but I am still in shock a little at her hair.

The thing that came to my mind though, when you see past her amazing abs *they are to-die-for*, is why didn’t Armani just go for any top model as surely they aren’t working her celebrity status to the max. Don’t get me wrong some shots, when she is looking into the camera Rihanna is instantly recognisable and I am sure they will be the ones used on the big billboards, but maybe next season’s campaign they go back to using a model rather than a celebrity.

This has to be my favourite shot, I just love how striking her pixie cut looks in the black and white, and the styling is fresh and young, oh and the car looks amazing.

Billboard Awards: Rihanna Rocks Max Azria

Who: Rihanna

Where: At the 2011 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas

Wearing: A custom-made Max Azria white suit, with a sheer white shirt with deep plunge, teamed with nude Christian Louboutin

Verdict: Rihanna is the master of disguise for me, I wouldn’t have thought that she would have worked this look for an awards ceremony, she looks really chic-yet-still-sexy. I have to admit I am not always a fan of what Rihanna wears but she certainly keeps me guessing.

I also loved how Rihanna opened the show with Britney Spears to perform the remixed version of S&M. I loved both of their provocative outfits designed by Norma Kamali, which totally works with this sexy tune.

Met Gala 2011: Rihanna Sexy In Stella McCartney

Who: Rihanna

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: A black lace one-sleeve *sorry you can’t see from this shot – trust me though* designed by Stella McCartney, paired with Christian Louboutin heels and emerald earrings

Verdict: I love this dress, but is it very Rihanna is what I have been asking myself. Don’t get me wrong she looks absolutely stunning, and she does give this gown a sex appeal that I don’t think everyone would do, but come on for me it is all about her amazing long braid – LOVE it!! Also the scalloped hem is divine.

If this dress isn’t very Rihanna, I have been thinking that it would have looked amazing on a non-pregnant Kate Hudson or Cameron Diaz maybe.

Cover Loving: Rihanna Chanel-Clad on Vogue

Pic: US Vogue - April 2011

We’ve known for ages that Rihanna had finally scooped her first long-awaited American Vogue cover, as the singing superstar broke the news to everyone on her Twitter in January. But seriously, nothing could have prepared me for this amazing cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz, Rihanna really is the perfect choice for the Shape issue.

Looking stunning in a sheer Chanel dress from the label’s pre-fall 2011 collection, I love that Rihanna is channelling Jessica Rabbit with her bright red hair and her sultry good looks.

If the cover is this good – I can’t wait to see what the shoot looks like inside.

Single Cover: Rihanna Draped In Marchesa

Via Marchesa Facebook

Well Rihanna isn’t technically wearing, more draped in this gorgeous red Marchesa gown on the cover ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ off her album new album ‘Loud’.

I am liking Rihanna with long bright red hair she can really pull it off, and I think this dress looks better draped than her actually wearing it as I think it might be a bit too girlie for her. Great cover though.
