Here's Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, making air travel look especially glamorous at JFK. She's carrying a Givenchy Ayers-Trimmed Antigona Bag, one of many Givenchy bags in her collection. Throwing gorgeous supermodels a few freebies has to be a lot cheaper than paying whatever their going modeling rates are these days. It's one of the more economical ways luxury brands can market their new goods, and it seems to be a strategy they're relying on pretty heavily as of late. You can find a cobalt blue version of Rosie's bag for $3,690 at Barneys.
I especially like this version of the Antigona because the snakeskin handles make it look like you're doing a little Old Testament-style snake handling, AND carrying a Givenchy bag. If that combo doesn't command respect, then what does? You can see all of Rosie's luxe acquisitions (some of which we can verify she actually paid for) in "The Many Bags of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley".
