The entertainment world is obsessing over Katie Holmes right now because of her high-profile divorce from Tom Cruise, and I’m focusing on her as well, but for different reasons. I’ve had a thing for Katie …
This is a first, the first time we have spoken about Roger Vivier. But Vivier, known as the “Fragonard of the shoe”, has created some of the most important shoes of the 20th century, including in the 1950’s when he invented the stiletto heel. Vivier passed in 1998 and Bruno Frisoni took over as the artistic director in 2002. Frisoni has continued to keep the brand growing, as the shoes have always spoken for themselves and now the handbags are seen on every top celebrity and socialite from Paris to New York.
One of the biggest fans of Roger Vivier is Katie Holmes, who has been seen in Vivier often. The latest acquisition for Katie Holmes is the stunning Roger Vivier Mikado Flat Bag in black python from the fall/winter 2008-2009 collection. While Katie wears her Vivier bag, her daughter Suri enjoys her very own pair of iconic Roger Vivier Buckle Flats. Jealous? Yes, I am as well. Suri is becoming a fashionista in her own right and Katie Holmes is stunningly dressed in Vivier accessories, including her sunglasses and new handbag.
Buy the Roger Vivier Mikado Flat Bag through Roger Vivier NYC for $2275 (large) and $1325 (small). Call 212-861-5371. Visit Roger Vivier online.

The new bag of choice for Katie Holmes? Well it is an interesting Fendi number that can clearly be loved or hated quite easily. Katie Holmes was spotted out sporting a funky cross-body bag, the Fendi Snakeskin F3 Secret Code Bag. If the bag looks familiar, it is because Shannon covered the Fendi Stamped F6 Secret Code Bag, which elicited a strong like/dislike barrier. And the F6 is similar to Katie Holmes’ F3, but the F3 is designed with genuine snakeskin. The focal point of the bag is the genuine sodalite stone embellishments with logo-engraved settings.
What is so secret about this bag? Why name it the Secret Code Bag? All of the details do show themselves well, including the snakeskin, suede-lined cut-outs on the front and back, and stone embellishments. Katie Holmes choose to wear the bag with the removable belted shoulder strap, rather than carrying it by the rolled leather handle. There are two pouch pockets under the flap and an interior patch pocket. Measurements are 12.5″x 7.75″x 4.25″. Buy through eLuxury for $3,840.
Katie Holmes dresses older than her age, is married to a questionable man at times, but she has a knack for fashion. And her latest handbag that has made it onto our obsession list is the Chloe Paraty Bag in black python. This bag is not available in stores yet, but of course it has been seen with Katie all over town. And why wouldn’t we obsess over it? It is casual, exotic, and perfect urban chic style. That has my name written all over it. And while this bag may be available in leather versions, it is this exact python version that I am lusting for. Of course I will have to go see it in stores once it arrives, but my hope is that this Chloe bag does not disappoint. We are waiting to hear more information on this handbag, so when we do we will be sure to let you know. Bravo from us to Katie on this one! Buy Chloe bags through Net A Porter and Saks.
