Next week, Tiffany & Co. will debut their first handbag collection, and they’ve already got their first celebrity fan! Jennifer Aniston was spotted carrying the suede reversible tote outside of Good Morning America. Tiffany signed on Richard Lambertson and John Truex of Lambertson Truex to create the 44-piece collection, that boasts everything from classic totes to colorful evening clutches. And the timeless styles are like opening a jewel box–every bag is lined in signature Tiffany Blue satin or leather. “We want you to open these purses and discover something really special inside,” Truex told us. Plus, since a purse’s hardware is the “closest thing to jewelry,” they incorporated elegant touches like palladium-covered clasps and chain-link straps that feel like bracelets. The collection, which ranges from $395-$16,000, will be available for purchase September 1st in select Tiffany boutiques and on Tiffany.com. Click through our gallery to get a sneak peek at the collection now!
Following the success of their Spring 2010 collaboration, Converse and Missoni are launching two new styles of the iconic Chuck Taylor sneaker for fall. Both sneakers, which are unisex and run from sizes 3 to 13, feature a black-and-white space-dyed knit covering the side and toecap of the sneaker, with a leather tongue in Missoni brick-red. Retailing for around $200, the sneaks will be available at select boutiques and Missoni locations in early September. Would you buy a pair of Missoni Converse? Tell us in the comments section below!
Some people shop their closets, Drew Barrymore shops her suitcase! While promoting Going the Distance, the star has been rocking and re-rocking her favorite pieces. Yesterday we did a double-take when she entered the Daily Show with Jon Stewart studios in a girlie purple skirt and a military-style shirt (left), only to exit in the same topper dressed down with sexy skinnies (right). And how about those shoes? Barrymore’s worn her YSL gray suede Trib Twos to at least four events so far. Check out more of her inspiring repeats in the gallery below.
Ever wondered where the winners go after picking up their trophies at the Primetime Emmy Awards? This year they’ll head backstage at the Nokia Theater to savor the moment and check out the must-haves at the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Frozen Moments lounge, presented by On 3 Productions. Nominees, presenters and other small screen stars who stop by the space will receive gifts like a PALM Pixi Plus smartphone, a complimentary membership at Crunch Fitness and an AMC Signature Pass valid for an entire year of free movies. And while they’ll also take home goodies from brands like AquaSwiss, Vintage Revolution, Morrocanoil and The Body Shop, VIP visitors to the lounge will also have the chance to give back: For each celebrity who stops by, a donation will be made to The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation, which fosters new innovations in television while preserving the 64-year history of the medium. We’ll be in the Frozen Moments lounge watching the action unfold onstage, talking to the winners and scouting for hot new products, so come back to InStyle.com on Sunday night for all the behind-the-scenes scoop!
Ann Taylor’s chic LOFT label has down-sized, but not on style: The label’s newly-redesigned petites collection is not only smack on-trend for fall, but also perfectly proportioned. Anyone (and we mean anyone—not just you shorties) who finds a regular size top or bottom too long in the sleeve, torso, rise hem or leg will find plentiful offerings, as petites are all about proportion to your height. And the new fall collection, featuring architectural silhouettes, textured tweeds and gorgeous floral prints, has already found a celebrity fan in Kristen Bell. The star was spotted wearing the label’s Multi-Tier Shell in Autumn Spots ($50) with their Denim Leggings ($70) at a party for the brand in June. Find Kristen’s look or create your own at loftonline.com.

Yesterday Tatiana Blatnik, an event planner for Diane von Furstenberg (and now a princess!), married Prince Nikolaos of Greece on the isle of Spetses amidst hundreds of adoring citizens and tourists. Blatnik wore a strapless sweetheart lace Angel Sanchez gown. “Tatiana is a classic beauty–very Grace Kelly, tall, with a streamlined figure and natural elegance–everything a designer could ask for. We decided on a classic strapless gown with a soft A-line skirt made with 40 meters of French Chantilly, asymmetrical draping and delicate embroidery,” the designer told us exclusively. “To make the train less formal, I decided to make two long Chantilly falls that would integrate to the veil. To complete the romantic yet conservative look, I created a Chantilly hand embroidered bolero–a mandatory requirement for the ceremony.” She topped the look off with a Grecian crown and carried a traditional bouquet of white stephanotis. Congrats to the happy couple!
