Rihanna and Céline Dion double up on designer bags
Why tote around one pricey purse when you can carry a pair?
On Friday, both Rihanna and Céline Dion made a case for doubling up on high-end handbags for fashion, not function.
First, the “Courage” balladeer, 51, stepped out in NYC in a sophisticated all-black ensemble consisting of croc-embossed leather pants, a Wolford turtleneck bodysuit, a tweed Chanel jacket — and not one, but two quilted flap bags from the French fashion house worth a combined total of over $10,000.
That night, on the opposite side of the country, Rihanna headed to dinner in Santa Monica in a head-to-toe Dior look covered in logos, including a vintage slip dress and monogram-lined coat and matching bucket hat.
To complete her Dior-riffic getup, the 31-year-old “Diamonds” hitmaker slung the brand’s Oblique Saddle Bag ($3,350) and grabbed ahold of its sold-out Mini Book Tote ($1,750).
