Fashion on Film: Bride Wars
Every once in a while, Hollywood graces us with a movie that provides us fashionistas with stunning fashion and enviable style to drool over. The characters are like walking advertisements for the most famous designers. The last movie that I can remember of this stature was “The Devil Wears Prada.” I watched it again recently, and a couple of years later I still love the haute fashion worn in the movie. The next movie for us to look forward to with fabulous fashion is Bride Wars. This movie isn’t based on anything fashion related…but more like brides and weddings, but it features to of Hollywood’s hottest and trendiest actresses, Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson. I have seen some on the scene shots from this movie and the outfits and accessories are tres chic.
The above picture features a shot from the movie featuring Anne and Kate. They are both carrying two extremely cute bags. Anne’s bag is the Coach Gigi Leather Tote. I found it on Coach.com for $658. Anne’s bag is in the walnut color and also comes in camel and black. It features turnlock details and vintage leather. This bag is roomy and chic and is the perfect everyday bag. It also comes in great colors that can go with almost any outfit.
Kate’s bag is the Tod’s T Bag tote. It features black patent leather and large front pockets that give it a funky appeal. It’s large and roomy and gives your outfit that extra spunk. I found it on saks.com for $1,500. This bag definitely makes Kate’s character look like a stylish diva.
I can’t wait until Bride Wars comes out, not just because I love these actresses but because they give us high expectations of what type of fashion we can look forward to. This should definitely be a fashionista film.

Anne Hathaway Purse Style: Devi Kroell for Target Handbag
Anne Hathaway with her Target Bag, a perfect example that money doesn’t buy style. You don’t have to spend $500+ on a handbag to be fashionable, there are hundreds, heck even thousands of designers out there that come out with great bags that are stylish and very affordable.
The handbag above is actually from Devi Kroell’s cheaper line for Tar-jhay. The Devi Kroell designer handbags which are known for their four-figure price tag and exotic material, traded in all of the above to feature a under $50 price tag and embossed python material. Anne Hathaway recently got her hands on this super cheap but very chic Devi Kroell purse.
The bag is currently sold out on the Target site, but don’t worry, I found quite a few of the same bag floating around on ebay. Check ‘em out!
side note: Dearest Seattlites, if you happen to be in the downtown area you must stop off at Nordstrom’s sister store, the Rack. Right now, at this very second there is a huge stash of the Devi Kroell Classic Medium Hobo’s (in Python!!) marked down to an astonishing $600! That’s like $1500 off retail! You better go quickly. These babies are going to sell out faster than you will believe.
