Emmy Rossum Is Ready For Spring In An Affordable Coach Crossbody Bag

Here’s the ridiculously pretty and perfect Emmy Rossum, carrying her “Bright Coral” Coach Legacy Mini Tanner Crossbody Bag after a lunch date in Beverly Hills, CA. I love this Mini Tanner for so many reasons: the bold, eye-popping spring hue, the lavishly oversized tassels, and the fact that it’s just big enough to fit an e-reader, for starters. But what I especially love is the miniature price tag. You can grab this bag for only $258 at Coach. It’s also available in black leather and Coach’s signature legacy pattern.

Ok, truth talk time. Why isn’t Emmy Rossum the face of at least one major cosmetics brand? She has such a great face and amazing alabaster skin! Yes, she did one of Cotton’s “The Fabric of My Life” campaigns last year, but why isn’t this chick trying to sell the 28-35 age demographic on some sort of moderately priced skincare product already?

Are you listening, Clinique?

Khloe Kardashian rings in SPRING with a buttery Celine bag

Khloe Kardashian is acquiring quite an impressive collection of Celine bags – here she is carrying a pale yellow Celine Luggage Tote after leaving a business meeting with sister Kim and momager Kris. Earlier this year we spotted her on the sidelines of a Clippers game with a very enviable python flap Celine trapeze bag. Celine bags are only available from Celine boutiques and high-end department stores – a source of continuous irritation to bag lovers everywhere.

Khloe may want to cool it on the bag-buying for the time-being – as you’ve probably heard, Khloe and Lamar have received some flack recently for reportedly not donating a single penny of the millions of dollar’s they’ve raised for Lamar’s charity Cathy’s Kids to cancer research, one of the main causes the charity was originally intended to support.

The Many Bags of Amanda Seyfried

This may sound a little bit weird, but I’m really glad that Amanda Seyfried is famous. I’ve been a fan of hers since the halcyon days of Mean Girls, in which she stole every scene she was in, and I’ve been silently rooting for her success ever since. And now, here she is, with a big role in Oscar-nominated Les Miserables and several more films in the pipeline. I normally have an instinctual dislike for other Amandas, but I can’t help cheering for Ms. Seyfried.

In addition to sharing a name, it seems as though we also share a some opinions on handbags. Amanda carries a lot of Givenchy, seems to favor black, and when she really loves a bag, she carries it for weeks on end without switching. Beyond just carrying the brand’s bags, it seems as though she might have an in with the Givenchy team – she had the Lucrezia Satchel long before it was even available for pre-order. Check out her full collection in the slideshow below.

Speaking of the Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, let’s start there. Seyfried hung on to this bag for quite a while, and the simple construction and dark color fit her taste perfectly.

Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour

Before I start on the post proper, let’s address the elephant in the room since I’m pretty sure most of you will come to an instant conclusion even if you’ve read the post. And I’ve figured if Saint Laurent has no qualms pushing this particular design out, they won’t have an issue with people talking about it either.

At first glance it does look like the Birkin, and even after looking at it for a good 1968 seconds, it still looks like a Birkin. The shape’s pretty similar, as are the handles and even the tabbed gusset details (one on each side of the handle) won’t look out of place on the aforementioned bag, but that’s just about it.

Which means it’s time to wax lyrical about why I’m loving the Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour so much.

For starters, you can’t not love its pared-down simplicity and it’s probably safe to say that Hedi Slimane referenced JPG’s Shadow Birkin, which has also got to be one of my favourite variants of all time.

And then there are the thoughtful touches, from the brass feet to a zip that goes across the top of the bag that’s definitely useful. Polished calfskin on the outside and lined with suede, the made-in-Italy piece has compartments galore on the inside, good for all manner of personals.
