Fashion fades, only style remains the same - Coco Chanel
Happy New Year 2015!
It's that crazy time of the week when I blog and blurt stuff about life, leather and a bit of everything else.
This time, I'm gonna talk about the Hollywood film industry and its love for the leather. I did some research over the Internet about the top choice of leather bag styles of top female Hollywood and music celebrities and found out some super-cool interesting tidbits.
We all love Hollywood movies and the American culture of art and music. Simply put, Hollywood is the staple diet of film entertainment for people all around the world. The American film industry has made an impact on every cinephile on this planet for more than a century now. Right from colorful and magical musicals in the 30s and 40s to action thrillers and American westerns in the 50s and 60s, we have been fed on a daily dose of American pop culture for so many years now.
Be it the reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her family or billionaire socialite Paris Hilton who makes news at all times, paparazzi and the media tend to spare nobody. However, one good thing that comes out of this constant media attention is that we find out what do rich celebrities look like. Right from their cars to their clothes and from their handbags to their dresses, fans want to know what do they it, how do they do it and from where do they do it.
Right from my daughter, who loves pop boy band 'One Direction' (although they're British) to my younger sister who is a big Leonardo DiCaprio fan, everyone loves Hollywood.
