We talk about celebrities and their handbags all day, every day (well, we get weekends off) over at BagThatStyle, but from now on, we’re going to be bringing more stars with their bags to our lovely PurseBlog readers as well. After all, scrutinizing pictures of people carrying expensive handbags is near and dear to our hearts, even if I’m not exactly sure what that says about us as people. Don’t think about it too hard, trust me.
In that spirit, let’s talk about stars and Hermes, shall we? But not the stars or the Hermes that you’d probably assume. What’s the fun in looking at Victoria Beckham’s zillionth Birkin (actually, that would be pretty fun) when you can go a bit off the beaten path with reality-star-turned-booze-tycoon Bethenny Frankel and singer/songwriter Alanis Morisette and their lovely Hermes Evelyne Crossbody Bags?
Both ladies are doing a great job showing us that Hermes bags can indeed be worn in a casual, functional way, which is one of the major advantages of the Evelyne – it’s a hands-free weekend bag from a company best known for the complete opposite. Both Bethenny and Alanis have styled their Evelynes similarly, with slim jeans and neutral tones. Personally, I prefer Alanis’ grey bag and her whole look – it’s exactly the kind of thing I would wear to run to the store on a Saturday afternoon.
