Anna Wintour Just Broke One of Her Main Outfit Rules

Trends come and go, but there's one thing I'm certain about in fashion: Anna Wintour is never seen without her phone and her sunglasses. Before you start mentioning her love of nude sandals, she does actually change these to boots sometimes, so you can strike them from the list. The editor in chief of Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast always remains loyal to her personal style, and if you're a fan, you'll notice that she rarely carries a bag.

Wintour might be holding her sunglasses in her hand, when they're not on her face, that is, and will have her phone in the other, but she rarely has a bag. That's not to say she never wears one, but she is rarely pictured carrying one (she has people for that, of course), especially not when she has a red carpet event. However, yesterday, at the memorial for Karl Lagerfeld, she wore a classic silver bag from Chanel

The event for Lagerfeld took place in Paris and was attended by various A-listers, including the likes of Helen Mirren, who performed at the event. While Wintour wore her now trademark Manolo Blahnik sandals, she also had on a Chanel dress to honor the late designer, along with the bag.
