Kate Moss with the Longchamp ‘Glastonbury’ at Glastonbury!

Kate Moss is starting to become very predictable in her festival attire – the standard denim worn jacket, shorts, tights, boots ensemble, and it’s no surprise as to where is bag is from.  The black messenger is part of her Rock’n Casual line from collaboration with Longchamp and appropriately named the ‘Glastonbury’ messenger.

The Glastonbury features an adjustable strap, a flat pocket on the suede and a zip pocket on the back, it almost seems like the bags most interesting feature is its zebra print lining! Although it may be very convenient and versatile I don’t think it’s the best bag of the collection – a bit boring even.

You can buy Kate’s bag from the Longchamp online store for €450 in both black and nude.

Penelope Cruz with Gerard Darel ’24 hour’ Syracuse bag

Penelope Cruz was recently spotted at LAX with her Gerard Darel knitted handbag which has been a celeb favourite in summer for the past few years, particularly with the likes of Cameron Diaz, Halle Berry and Eva Longoria. Unfortunately it’s not the easiest bag to get hold of and no longer available online but the bag retails for around $500.

Knitted handbags aren’t usually my thing but I adore the details. the cute little tassles and I think the light shade makes it perfect for spring and summer ensembles. I can see why it’s a popular choice.

Gaga Defaces Another Hermès Birkin

Lady Gaga was carrying a rather distinctive version of the Hermès Birkin bag when leaving a studio in London the other day. It looks like she’s gone all DIY and coated the bag in spikes. I haven’t decided whether I love or hate this new gagafied version yet but I don’t think I could ever find the courage to do something to such a pretty handbag, especially given that it retails for around £9000!
