Nicole Richie's Ice Blue Classic City and More!

Nicole Richie was spotted heading to the pool at her hotel in Miami, FL on March 20, 2012.  In her hands is an Balenciaga Classic City in Ice Blue from 2005.  We can notice that the bag has faded to an off-white which is common for this particular color to fade and yellow.  It doesn't matter though because even after all these years, Nicole still carries hers once in a while!

Ashley Tisdale was spotted catching her flight back to Los Angeles from windy Maui, HI on March 23, 2012.  She carries her gorgeous S/S 2011 Nuage Rose Gold Giant City (my fave!) and wears a beautiful Ikat dress by Allsaints.

Minka Kelly's Sapphire Day and Mena Suvari's Polkadots Maxi Twiggy!

Gorgeous Minka Kelly was spotted grocery shopping in Beverly Hills, CA on March 21, 2012.  She wears her lovely 2008 Sapphire Covered Giant Hardware Day bag.  She's also sporting tie-dye jeans by Earnest Sewn which seems to be a huge trend for this spring!

Mena Suvari was spotted grabbing a coffee on March 19, 2012 in Hollywood, CA.  She is wearing the newest perforated style bag, the Polkadot Maxi Twiggy!  It actually looks pretty cute on her and not as transparent as I thought it would be.  What I do enjoy about the Perf styles is the adorable little golden hardware it has!  The Polkadot Perfo style also comes in the Kraft which is bigger than the Maxi Twiggy

Dark Violet with Giant Gold Hardware and LE Metallic Cities

It looks like the Balenciaga boutiques in the US is receiving a limited edition S/S 2012 Dark Violet City with the highly missed Giant Gold Hardware.  I spoke to Bill from Balenciaga New York and he says they are due to receive the Giant City sometime in April.  Unfortunately he did not mention any other styles for the Dark Violet GGH.  The price will be $1895.  Please email him at with Attn Bill in the subject line if you're interested in putting your name down.  He does not have any pictures yet but I posted a pic below of a swatch.

He also told me about these really pretty Limited Edition Metallic Cities! They are exactly like the Metallic Cities from F/W 2005 with shiny nickel classic hardware.   Below are pictures of a metallic light pink and a bronze.  These are priced at $1545 which is not too bad on the wallet.  Please email Bill if you're interested.

ETA 4/15/12: Here are some pictures of the G21 (Giant Gold Hardware) and G12 (Mini Giant Gold Hardware) Dark Violet City.  I have to say that that the GH still captures my heart because the hardware is so bold and beautiful.

Kristen Stewart's Quilted Leather Biker Jacket

Kristen Stewart takes her casual grunge look to a whole new level!  She was spotted getting lunch at Le Duc after attending the Balenciaga 2012-2013 Fall-Winter fashion show (today).  I guess the greatest perk of being the newest face of Balenciaga's upcoming fragrance is dibs on goodies like the beautiful quilted leather motorcycle jacket she's wearing! I think this jacket looks very flattering on her which is nice because the bold shoulders do not work for everyone (like me).
