AOC Spilled On What’s In Her Purse And It’s Pretty Incredible

We might all be shutting ourselves up in quarantine but AOC is opening herself up.

Last week, The U.S. Representative gave fans a brief peek into her daily beauty regimen in a video for Vogue, and now she’s getting honest about what she packs on hand in a “What’s In My Bag” feature on Instagram. In a video shared to her Instagram Stories, AOC got real about what she keeps in her Telfar Clemens’s purse and get ready to add some of her stashes to your checkout bags!

In a post to her Instagram page, AOC showed off what she carries in her Telfar bag.

If you’re not aware of Telfar by now, get ready because the Black-owned vegan-inclusive brand will be popping off this fall. And AOC is already ahead of the curb.

Like her signature lip pigment, AOC’s bag is a medium Oxblood color and is packed full with all of the items she needs to get her through a busy week in Congress.

To intro the series of items, AOC wrote “What I bring with me to prep for a hearing.”

AOC she always carries a scarf and pair of sunglasses for her walk to work and a loaded binder.

“I have a daily binder with all my documents, briefs, daily calendar, supporting info, etc. for the day. I will print out all my hearing notes and keep them here for tomorrow,” she wrote. AOC also poked fun of herself, admitting that she is one “of those weird people that likes the office supply section of the pharmacy or grocery.”

AOC keeps hydrated while also managing her plastic consumption by carrying a large green water bottle.

To make sure her bag remains light on her route to work she uses a very special hack we could all learn from: ice.

“One trick to make my bag less heavy is just to put some ice in it and fill with water when I get to the office,” she explained. The Congresswoman also noted that besides toting around a number of notebooks in her bag she also has a bag filled with dentistry tools to care for her braces. “I need to brush my teeth and floss 3749437 times a day,” she shared.

At the very bottom of it all, AOC says she has a”random makeup bag” for last-minute TV appearances as well as her keys and wallet.

No doubt there’s a tube of Stila’s Beso (AOC’s red lipstick go-to) in that makeup kit!

In the two years that have passed since her debut as an actress in the 2018 Academy Award-winning film Roma, Yaltiza Aparicio has established herself as a Hollywood “get.” The Indigenous actress has appeared countless times on the cover of magazines, ones like Vogue México and Vanity Fair, and has been featured in ad campaigns for designers like Rodarte. So it’s no surprise that she has now been tapped to be part of Dior’s new campaign “Dior Stands with Women.”

As part of an effort to celebrate women across the film, beauty, and health industries Dior has launched its “Dior Stands with Women” campaign.

On Monday, the fashion brand announced it had launched a series of short films honoring women and their contributions to the industries and communities which they occupy. The campaign features actresses like Yaltiza Aparicio, model Paloma Elsesser, dancer Leyna Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Charlize Theron, Parris Goebel, and others.

In a statement about the campaign, Dior announced their intent in a post on Instagram. “Inspired by the exceptional women who have marked its history, Christian Dior Parfums unveils a series of short filmed portraits that give a chance to speak to extraordinary women,” it reads.

Speaking in the portrait series, Aparicio explains “For me, being a woman means being strong, always holding your head up because they tell you what they say, you must be sure of what you are capable of,” she went onto say that as “as an ambassador for UNESCO, my role is to represent indigenous communities with dignity. Give them a voice and visibility, which is something that we have lacked for a long time… Women have fought for many years for gender equality. It is not about being superior to men, it is about having the same opportunities, that in your work they give you a fair salary and not simply because you are a woman they pay you less or that they consider that you have fewer capacities simply because you are a woman.”

Speaking about their journeys, actresses Cara Delevinge and Charlize Theron touched on being unapologetic and part of male-dominated industries.

Check out Yalitza and the others in the Dior campaigns below.

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

Gucci / Twitter

In these tough times, Gucci’s latest line proves that you might be able to get a fortune out of the jeans you use as workwear in the yard. The upscale label recently launched a new line of jeans and overalls featuring a grass stain effect on their knees. But these are not your father’s cutting the lawn jeans.

The oversized pants retail for a cool $1,400 and feature large pockets and side buttons…

Users on Twitter were quick to question whether or not the new jeans were a joke by Gucci or a reflection of just how tone-deaf the high-end label is.

“How did it take so long for this to become a thing? My entire wardrobe just became more valuable!” one user tweeted in response. A second user commented, “Yeah not a Good Look!!! Wouldn’t buy those Jeans at the Thrift Store for a Dollar!!!”

It wasn’t long ago that the designer brand received criticism for selling warn-in sneakers that were “treated for an all-over distressed effect.”

The kicks were valued at $870. The brand’s description of the shoe design boasted that it was inspired by “vintage” 70s styles.

“The Screener sneakers — named for the defensive sports move — feature the Web stripe on the side and vintage Gucci logo, treated for an allover distressed effect,” the website explained.

Takeaway? Money sure can’t buy good taste.
