Heiress Tamara Ecclestone recently paid a visit to Hermes Madison Avenue in NYC with her new husband Jay Rutland. She carried an Hermes So Black Alligator Birkin Bag just for the occasion. We actually saw Tamara in NYC with this super rare, exclusive Hermes bag around this exact same time last year. This is the sort of limited edition Hermes bag you’ll only see in the hands of heiresses, top-tier actresses, Kardashians and the like.
Celebrity Style and Fashion
Slowly but surely Reese Witherspoon has become something of a divisive figure for celebrity watchers. Some love her prim, slightly preppy style, while others take her distaste for paparazzi and a certain drunken arrest incident that you might remember as proof that she’s a little too much like one of her most memorable characters, Tracy Flick. Either way, we think you have to admit that her collection of handbags is one of the best in Hollywood, particularly if you love a good leather day bag.
Jessica Simpson was recently spotted out and about in NYC, carrying a Givenchy Leopard Antigona Bag, which seems extremely Jessica Simpson-appropriate. In case you’ve never noticed, Jessica has a jaw-droppingly good bag collection, which you can peep in “The Many Bags of Jessica Simpson.” Jessica’s exotic print Givenchy Antigona can currently be snatched up for $2,707 at FarFetch.
What’s Jessica Simpson been up to these days, you ask?
Maria Shriver, her daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger and a PUPPY were recently spotted shopping at Cross Creek in LA. Maria was carrying a gorgeous, red Hermes Crocodile Birkin. From the lovely, slightly slouchy look of the leather, it appears as though she carries it regularly and has for some time. Croc Birkins cost well into the five figures, and the price varies greatly depending on the size.
Dita Von Teese loves all things retro, so we’re thoroughly unsurprised by her penchant for fur, even though once upon a time she was in fact a spokesperson for PETA (which, yes, does seem a tad inconsistent). Here she is arriving for a flight out of LAX, carrying a Delvaux Astrakhan Brillant GM Bag. Delvaux’s lineage goes far beyond “retro”, however; this Belgian brand actually claims to be the oldest luxury leather goods house in the world.
Reese Witherspoon was recently spotted shopping at the uber-popular Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles (a great spot for celeb-spotting) with her hubs Jim Toth and son Tennessee (a true little Southern dumpling). On her arm is a sleek, black calfskin Reed Krakoff Atlantique Bionic Mini Tote. Like a lot of the brand’s designs, the Atlantique Mini has a sharp, slightly futuristic edge.
Katy Perry paired her stunning floral Oscar de la Renta ballgown with a bold Olympia Le-Tan Dictionary Book Clutch at the American Music Awards Sunday night. Olympia is known for her signature clutches, which are all limited edition, hand-embroidered nods to literary history and bookworm culture. Her unique creations have inspired similar styles from brands like Kate Spade and Charlotte Olympia.
Celine Dion’s lust for Celine bags can clearly not be sated by just one. (Can’t say we blame her.) Here she is carrying a sublimely navy blue calf leather Celine Classic Box Bag with gold hardware, while ambling around Paris with her husband. She does seem to exhibit a strong preference for the Celine Box – she carried a leopard calf hair and black leather version of the same bag just a few weeks ago.
The costume department behind The Carrie Diaries is unarguably one of the best on TV, but it does occasionally take liberties with its 1980s timeline. Here’s AnnaSophia Robb, filming exterior shots for The show in NYC, carrying yet another eye-popping Fendi Baguette. This time it’s the Fendi Multicolored Mosaic Baguette Bag, which features colorful glass tiles set against calfskin trim and palladium hardware.
Jennifer Garner was recently seen shopping at Kidville in LA with her adorable son Samuel Affleck (who is startlingly blond, for a kid with two very brunette parents). She’s carrying a Givenchy Antigona Bag with a lizard-embossed finish that is loaded up with kiddie stuff to the point of losing its signature shape. You can get a regular leather version of the Antigona in a similar hue for $2,435 at Barneys.
