If you missed last night’s Victoria’s Secret 2012 Fashion Show with Alessandra Ambrosio wearing the 2.5 Million dollar diamond and gemstone bra here is the picture. The bra was replete with green emeralds, pink sapphire, and yellow canary diamonds. It was definitely a piece of jewelry history. Of course I am wondering how many of the guys were actually looking at the $2.5M bra and how many were looking at the bodies of the models. These 36 bust, 24 inch waisted, 36 inch hipped 5 feet 10 inch freaks of nature are definitely a sight to behold.
I always wonder how society decided that this tall look was what should be the society’s most coveted physique versus the Renaissance round physique. It is interesting that this current physique of 20 pound underweight models is the model of beauty in the world at the moment. Wonder how long this trend will last before we revert back to the Rubenesque figures from the Renaissance. It would be a kind of relief for most women I am sure.
Anyhow, getting back to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Rihanna was one of the highlights obviously singing Shine Bright Like a Diamond. But where was Heidi Klum? Did I miss her?
On another note Alessandra Ambrosio was seen toting the Givenchy Pandora tote recently on a rainy day in Beverly Hills at the end of November. Is this the new model must have? So if you are a model you wear the Rag & Bone moto boots, Balenciaga leather jacket, and now the Givenchy Pandora tote versus the Balenciaga city bag from the Kate Moss era.
Here is what I like about the Givenchy Pandora Tote:
1. The Givenchy Pandora tote is great as a crossbody messenger bag.
2. It is also great as a shoulder bag.
3. It has a distressed crinkled leather so you do not have to baby it.
4. It can be worn everyday and holds quite a bit.
5. It comes in lots of colors and fur and skins.
It seems to be the must have bag for this winter. So if you are looking for a versatile everyday bag, get the Â Givenchy Pandora bagÂ for $1,780.
Spotted – Katie Holmes seen wearing a burgundy crossbody bag all over New York City in the last few days. At first I thought it was her namesake Holmes & Yang by Valextra bag line, then upon closer inspection I figured out it was the Derek Lam burgundy Newton crossbody bag.
As soon as I saw this bag I just fell in love with it. Not because it was seen on Katie Holmes, but because it is such a cool and different take on all the hobos and satchels that are out at the moment. Although Katie Holmes does have very good taste in fashion.
This is a 80’s redux camera bag made modern with a cool zip top for easy access and security for all of your stuff while out and about.
It is the perfect bag for the holidays while you are out shopping for gifts you can stay hands free. The gold hardware with the thick sumptuous leather makes this a real luxurious bag. I like the magnetic close pocket in the front so you can store your cell phone and car keys so you don’t have to root around in your bag while carrying lots of shopping bags.
So whether you are a big fan of Katie Holmes and just like everything she wears or love a unique looking chic bag, this bag is a must for the holidays. It is fun and practical.

Kate Bosworth definitely has a very specific style. During her casual days when she is not on the red carpet she dresses very bohemian. She loves fringe, ankle boots, and cross body bags. She fits right in when she is at Coachella. She can probably be the Coachella ambassador for fashion.
On March 14, 2012 in Beverly Hills she was seen wearing a mini cross body bag, sunnies, brown suede ankle booties, and a denim ombre shirt. The look was effortless and chic classic Kate Bosworth style.
Since this pair is no longer available, get the very similar Vanessa Bruno Athe ankle boots with a 2 inch heel for $470 now at Asos.com.
