Kelly Osbourne attended Adam Lambert’s annual Halloween party at Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood last weekend dressed as Margot Tenenbaum from the film The Royal Tenenbaums. She rounded out her costume with a vintage-looking Hermès Kelly Bag.
There are some things celebs never seem to tire of, like fro-yo and Hermès Birkins. Here’s Heidi Klum, escorting her kids to Pinkberry post-soccer practice and carrying an especially nice blue Hermès Birkin. Heidi owns several Birkins, but I don’t think we’ve seen her carrying this one before, so it may be a recent addition to her collection.
Smell is the sense most closely tied to memory, and it’s not uncommon to hear bag lovers gush about the lovely leather scent that emanates from a brand new luxury bag. Some brands, like Dior and Tom Ford, even work that scent into fine perfumes because of its close association with luxury and quality.
Not long ago, we brought you the tale of one very rare bag: the Hermès Himalayan Crocodile Birkin above, complete with pavé diamond hardware. The bag, arguably the most sought-after in the world, was about to be sold at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills, and some speculated that it might break price records.
Heritage Auctions already holds the record for selling the most expensive handbag of all time, a diamond-encrusted Birkin that sold for more than $200,000 in 2011. With the house’s upcoming Luxury Accessories Signature Auction, it may well break its own record with an ultra-rare, incredibly covetable Hermès Himalayan Crocodile Birkin, finished with diamond-encrusted hardware.
