Kim Kardashian makes headlines again, and not in the most positive way! She's in trouble with PETA after being spotted with a Hermes Birkin crocodile skin handbag. After she was flour-bombed earlier this year by an activist linked to PETA, you may think she'd tone down her obvious use of exotic animal products. Guess not! We get it, Kim can afford it and it's totally her style.
We've featured celebrities sporting Adriana Castro in the past, and this spotting is no exception. What attracts celebrities such as Shakira, the Kardashian Klan, Jennifer Lopez and Audrina Patridge (just to name a few) to the Adriana Castro brand? Could it be the genuine exotic skins Adriana Castro uses? Is it the quality and elegance each bag exudes? How about the bold colors and sensual textures that every piece embodies? The answer is most likely all of the above.
It's always fun getting fashion inspiration from celebrities, so here are four celebrity style recreations that all have something in common (besides being celebrities, of course): they all include Kooba handbags!
The Kardashian Kollection. A lifestyle collection created by the Kardashian trio to bring Kardashian Fashion to their fanbase. Set to launch in August, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian have teamed up with Bruno Schiavi's Juppi International to create their collection for 400 Sears stores nationwide.
Kim Kardashian is set to launch her own lifestyle brand with her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, in 2011. We're told this lifestyle brand stems from the recent success of K-Dash by Kardashian, which is the clothing and handbag line sold exclusively on QVC. Now, these sisters are putting their creative minds together to create their new line of apparel, swimwear, lingerie, home goods and handbags, of course.
Kim Kardashian and her mom reportedly spent $100,000 in one day buying handbags at Hermés in Paris yesterday. There were only 7 handbags purchased in total, 6 being Birkins. It's not hard to spend $100,000 atHermés considering a Birkin is about $10,000 each. The remaining balance went toward a rare crocodile bag valued at around $30,000.
Juliette Jake's Croc and Python clutches have already been caught in the hands of well known celebs like Kristin Cavallari, Kim Kardashian, and Adrienne Bailon. Offered in an array of colors the Marlboro Red caught my eye for the coming season.
The Kardashian clan is no stranger to Adriana Castro clutches. They could arguably be their biggest supporter; Kris, Khloe, and Kim have all been seen carrying an array of this hot designers pieces. Recently while in Madrid, Kim was caught carrying this elongated beauty, the Crocodile Vibora Clutch in Black.
If anyone can wear stripes, ruffles, straps, over-sized jewelry all in one outfit, and it look amazing, it must be Kim Kardashian. She balances out this outfit with neutral shoes, necklace, and her Balenciaga bag.
