The opening of Louis Vuitton Santa Monica to benefit Heal the Bay last week boasted an impressive guest list with attendees such as Dita Von Teese, Rachel Zoe and Kristen Bell. The event allowing them to support a good cause while showing off their gorgeous Louis Vuitton accessories and ready-to-wear pieces.
Dita Von Teese carried the Carrousel handbag in Les Extraordinaires Damier Virtuose, part of the fall/winter 2010 collection. Though I usually prefer the minimal styles I love the classic shape of the carrousel, it’s a shame about the $25,800 price tag. Available to purchase for non-VIPs from October.
Kristen Bell looked adorable in her Louis Vuitton pre-fall ensemble and carrying an oversized bronze clutch by the designer.
Rachel Zoe carried her bright pink Minaudière Trésor from last years fall/winter collection, adding a little bit of colour to her all-black outfit. The crocodile clutch will come out in several new colours for the upcoming f/w including gris, vert and rose (grey, green and a lighter shade of pink). Prices start at $5450.
Also spotted with a crocodile Minaudière Trésor was Gabrielle Reece who chose a more discrete black version with her navy mini dress and flats.
Serena Williams opted for a larger handbag from the spring/summer collection, the Monogram Eden Neo in khaki. A popular choice this season despite a high price of $2,880.
