I mentioned earlier today on Purse Blog Savvy that I spent this past weekend in Vegas. I am going to sum up my trip by simply saying I love it there. There is always so much to see and to do that you really might get home needing another vacation. But more importantly, I couldn’t stop myself from staring at the beautiful handbags being carried around. In fact, I can’t believe how much a handbag can say about someone. This leads me to Kate Beckinsale. It seems as though every time I see an image of her at an event or just hanging out, she looks amazingly flawless. This time is no exception. Kate was seen wearing the Kara Ross Luxus Clutch to the STARS 2008 Benefit Gala last week.

Kara Ross has always been known for her use of impeccable exotic skins and precious stones. Clearly, she hit the nail on the head with this clutch. The white python skin and tigers eye stone pair together as well as the clutch does with Kate – flawless. Before I found a true appreciation for exotics, I would have told you snakeskin reminds me of my brother’s cowboy boots he used to wear with his superman costume or maybe a cheesy ’80s music video. Obviously this is not the case here. This is the kind of clutch that can be just as fabulous worn at a red carpet event as it is paired with a simple outfit you wear to grab a few cocktails. Plus, I simply love the femininity of the clutch. Kara Ross did a killer job here. But guess what, I don’t even need to search high and low to find the same look at a much cheaper price because you can buy this clutch through Bergdorf Goodman for $655.
