Kelly Osbourne Hermes Kelly Bag

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. It should probably be noted that an Hermès bag is not an absolutely essential ingredient of the Margot Tenenbaum costume, but everything else Kelly is wearing is spot-on.
