The classics come out at the Original Collection launch at Henri Bendel

I love this photo of Olivia Palermo, Kelly Rutherford and Jamie-Lynn Singer at the Henri Bendel Original Collection launch. Despite a variation in age and different career tracks, they all rely on the classic accessories from Hermès and Chanel to complete their looks.

Socialite Olivia Palermo opted for her favourite crocodile Hermès Jige clutch, which although she’s been carrying to events for a few seasons (and the Jige model being decades old now) still seems a very in-vogue style and shade for fall. Once again Kelly Rutherford carried one of her Birkins – is it really a surprise after she named her son Hermès? Jamie-Lynn Sigler stuck with a safe it-bag choosing a Chanel Classic Flap, a timeless albeit slightly common handbag. Even paired with quite a casual denim jacket and shorts it seems to work well and make her ensemble look a little more sophisticated.

Which is your favourite bag at the event?

Kim Kardashian carries a Hermès Birkin

It looks like Kim Kardashian has bought a new Hermès Birkin, this time in a distinct olive shade. Though I think the handbag is perfect for the current season, I can’t see that it’ll last too long seeing it’s not really a classic colour.

Obviously Kim doesn’t think too much of it as she discarded her boots in it after leaving the salon! What do you think of her new Birkin?

Helen Flanagan carries a Hermès Birkin

Coronation Street must pay well! Helen Flanagan was showing off her new cream Hermès Birkin when out in London yesterday. Seeing as the bag starts at around £6000 I’m wondering if this is a gift from her footballer boyfriend?

After seeing one these bags up close during my visit to Italy I’m not surprised they’re so coveted as Hermès has such great attention to detail. However I’m not too keen on Helen’s choice of colour particularly with the matching dress, it makes her outfit look a bit drab.

Katie Holmes carries the Happy and the Birkin

For some reason Katie Holmes arrived into New York by helicopter yesterday, carrying not only her recent favourite, a pre-fall edition of the Lanvin Happy bag but one of her trusty large Hermès Birkins. Bag envy! I also love how she’s matched the two bags with that metallic belt, it’s a nice touch to a cute, casual outfit.

Gaga Defaces Another Hermès Birkin

Lady Gaga was carrying a rather distinctive version of the Hermès Birkin bag when leaving a studio in London the other day. It looks like she’s gone all DIY and coated the bag in spikes. I haven’t decided whether I love or hate this new gagafied version yet but I don’t think I could ever find the courage to do something to such a pretty handbag, especially given that it retails for around £9000!
