Here’s a fur-wrapped Ellen Barkin carrying a deep purple Hermes Birkin while doing a little shopping in Manhattan. Have you caught Ellen on her new NBC show The New Normal yet? She stars alongside fellow PurseBlog regular and designer bag-enthusiast Nene Leakes. Sadly, her new primetime TV gig seems to leave her less time for hilarious and zany tweets on her infamous Twitter page.
I know how much you guys love Birkins – and especially seeing them in the hands of practically every celeb who walks the Earth on a weekly basis – but I’m curious: is the Birkin a bag that you still aspire to own (if you don’t already)? Or do you feel that the Birkin is overexposed? I think we’ve said almost everything that can be said about the Hermes Birkin at one time or another, so how about some more Ellen Barkin trivia? Did you know she was married to somber Irish hottie Gabriel Byrne for 11 years? Neither did I!
