Balenciaga (www.balenciaga.com) was founded in 1918 by Cristóbal Balenciaga in Spain. His boutiques were quite successful with the aristocrats but due to the Spanish civil war, he moved his company to France. In Paris, his revolutionary designs grew a cult following. Many huge designers worked for Balenciaga- Oscar de la Renta, Andre Courreges, Emanuel Ungaro, and his most famous and protégé Hubert de Givenchy. Cristóbal Balenciaga closed down his fashion house a few years before passing. It wasn’t until 1986 that Jacques Bogart SA acquired the rights of Balenciaga. Since then Balenciaga has made a huge comeback. Today, Balenciaga bags are worn by many Hollywood stars and coveted by tons of women including myself. Although I don’t have one yet, I definitely will one day. Until then here are my posts about Balenciaga handbags!
2 Balenciaga Bag Reviews since 2010
Good morning from ABD News- providing you with makeup and fashion news updates from around the globe!
Thanks for joining me this morning! I hope it’s off to a great start!
Let’s begin with the announcement that Michael Phelps, the most highly decorated Olympian in history, is now the newest spokesperson for Louis Vuitton! It’ll be interesting to see if we’ll be seeing Michael sporting some new Louie bags out and about town soon! Or if him being the new Louis Vuitton spokesman will increase their profits the next couple quarters particularly in the men’s department. On a side note: To see this LV bag on the ground so close to the tub makes me uneasy. I would never dare do that to my Louie!
Next, Mariah Carey has signed on not only to be a judge for the next season of American Idol, but to join forces with O.P.I and launch her own nail polish collection. I picture lots of glamorous sparkles and bold colors to come but we’ll see come January of next year!
And for the last story of this morning- has Kristen Stewart’s unfaithfulness cost her her relationship with Balenciaga? There was some mystery behind whether Kristen would still be the face of Florabotanica fragrance campaign but sources are saying that all rumors are untrue.
Do you think that Kristen Stewart’s cheating scandal will negatively affect Balenciaga’s Florabotanica fragrance sales? Or do you think that her Twilight fans will be able to forgive and continue to support her? What Louis Vuitton bag do you think Michael Phelps will be seen carrying around? Any guesses on names that Mariah Carey will use for her new O.P.I collection? Let me know in the comments below!!
I’m Soo Jin with ABD News signing off for now!
I’ve been interested in Balenciaga handbags for a while now and once in a while browse online. Today I discovered this beauty! This is the Balenciaga Giant City Gold Hamilton in the color Bordeaux. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous? I love love love this color and could see myself using this bag forever. Unfortunately it’s pretty expensive…. like $1945 expensive… I guess it’s time to start saving, eh? haha
I’m now lying in bed, watching the Face Off- some costume makeup reality show contest, and ready to sleep soon. Hope you all are out having fun or are home with your loved ones relaxing. I’m so glad that tomorrow is Saturday and I get to sleep in. Good night and hope you have BEAUTYFULL dreams!
