Not that Shana is opposed to a really cool purse. She founded the luxury purse line Affashionado in 2013, and the pre-spring 2015 collection is now for sale, consisting of four lovely bags that are priced from $195 to $720. In the spring of 2015, Shana will be teaming up with artisans from Tanzania as she begins to fulfill her goal of marrying fashion with sustainability. We caught up with Shana to ask her, briefly, what her favorite purse is (spoiler alert: it's our favorite, too).

Barbie unveils her Instagram account - Yahoo News

Kyle Naughton drew a penalty just 6 minutes into the game when he got cleaned out by AEL goalkeeper Karim Fegrouche, who injured himself on the play and had to leave the game. Unfortunately, Harry Kane wasn't able to convert from the penalty spot, but he'd go on to redeem himself. Just before halftime, Kane put Spurs up on the night by finishing off a nice quick move, with Mousa Dembele providing the assist. AEL's defense was in shambles by the time the ball got to Kane, and he placed a perfect first-time finish into the back of the net from the edge of the box. Paulinho scored just four minutes into the second half. Dembele made an excellent tackle to win the ball back, Vlad Chiriches , of all people, provided the assist and Paulinho's composed finish was exactly what Spurs were hoping to see a lot of when they spent 17m on him last summer.

After Man Repeller and Garance Dore, Barbie is the latest fashion icon to bring her lessons in style to Instagram. The blondest of dolls made black people hairstyles her debut on the social network Wednesday under the handle @BarbieStyle . Just like real-life fashionistas, Barbie shares style inspirations and details from her own wardrobe, including #OOTD photos (for "Outfit Of The Day"). Images of her tiny accessories and clothes are accompanied by comments such as "Thrilled to be heading to New York, London, Milan and Paris this September for all four fashion weeks! Starting to prep my travel essentials." Launched barely 24 hours ago, the account already has over 15,000 followers, showing that Barbie is still just as in vogue as ever. And since the doll has already posted that she likes to read Elle US and Style.com, Instagram's latest style guru is bound to attract sponsorships from plenty of other brands.
