Hollywood & Highland Character Count: April 19

Hollywood & Highland Character Count April 19 1

As a means by which to chronicle what is going on in the American cultural zeitgeist and how we cater to that, The Hollywood And Highland Character Count is an infrequently occurring sociological examination. Every few Fridays, we’ll share who the performers are that are clogging the Hollywood and Highland sidewalks and see how they change and shift in relationship to what is happening in the entertainment world. We’ll make predictions, keep count of who stays and goes, and log just what is happening at the best microcosm of what is on the world’s mind: Hollywood and Highland.

Bag Brilliance From Mansur Gavriel

Bag Brilliance From Mansur Gavriel 1

A few years ago, I had this absurdly faggy obsession with Longchamp’s Roseau bag, a luscious black leather tote bag that elevated any owner from “Person With A Bag” status to “Hot Bitch #1 Look At How Fly I Am Respect This” status. I was obsessed with that bag for no other reason than it epitomized casual luxury and was so smartly made. I still fantasize about it….that is until I replaced it with these super fucking brilliant Mansur Gavriel bags.
