I know that the Versus Gold Pin Shoulder Bag isn’t quite Versace, but all I can think when I look at it is how much it owes to that famous Versace dress that Elizabeth Hurley wore to the Four Weddings and a Funeral premiere way back in 1994. (Can you believe that’s nearly 20 years ago?) Is there any other immediate association that a fashion lover can have with bold black accented with enormous gold safety pins? I think not. I also can’t think of any who I’d rather see carrying this bag than Liz herself.

Or maybe you’re a little younger than I am, and you remember that particular dress more for Lady Gaga’s turn in the gown than Liz Hurley’s – Gaga would certainly be an appropriate bag mama for this piece. There are others who could pull it off, though – Rihanna, Rita Ora. Mostly singers, now that I think of it – why can singers pull things off that actresses can’t? That’s a debate for another time, though – tell us in the comments who you’d like to see wear this bag.

If you are the person you’d like to see with this purse, pick it up for $715 via SSENSE.

    hmm, just the other day I saw this Versus skirt on NAP, it had a small slit and a pin, I thought it is maybe not quite appropriate for the office … but the bag version certainly is.

    Yeah I also thought “Liz Hurley” when I saw the question. Way to reference the glory years. :D

  • laura

    Demi Lovato. If I hadn’t read your “The Many Bags of…” post a few days ago, I wouldn’t even think of her but now I think she would like this bag… based on the bags she owns and her (kind of) tacky taste
