IT’S OPRAH! Oprah has been making the press rounds over the past week, giving interviews to networks and magazines which she does not own willy-nilly, which is rare for Oprah. Here she is leaving the CBS Morning Show studios, where she was promoting her new movie, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, carrying a lovely white leather Mulberry Willow Tote. Fun fact: that envelope front pocket detaches to become a clutch! Thus the purpose of the seemingly extraneous yet very functional zippers, which give it a nice contemporary pop. You can get Oprah’s bag in black for $2,600 at Net-a-Porter.
As you probably know, Mulberry bags are generally prized by young, twiggy British “It” Girls – the Alexa Chungs of the world, and those who want to dress like them. But while Oprah may stand a tad outside of Mulberry’s most visible demographic, the Willow is a great choice for her, as it’s definitely one of the brand’s most refined styles. It’s polished and neutral enough to go with practically any look.
