I have always loved Vanessa Hudgens’ style, especially when it comes to her handbag collection. Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Botkier, JJ Winters… you name it. What I like most is how she has a mix of pieces. Some are higher end, while others are more moderate. The styles vary quite a bit too. Most recently though, she seems to have found a new love — Cleobella handbags. There are pictures floating around with her carrying several different styles from this designer. So naturally, when I stumbled across this picture of Vanessa on a romantic date with Austin Butler, I assumed the bag she was carrying for the occasion was by Cleobella as well.
To my surprise, however, I was unable to locate the bag in question on Cleobella’s official website. Is this a Cleobella handbag? I’m not sure. I do like it though. The long fringe dangling from the outer edges of the bag is so pretty! I love how the bag hangs down low, almost to her knees (a characteristic that Vanessa appears to favor with a lot of her handbags). I also love what appears to be a beaded design on the side. Perhaps the design was inspired by Native American artwork? It is a little hard to tell from this picture. The bag does appear to be dark brown, distressed leather and it is taller than it is wide. I would love to know who makes it. Does anyone know? Cleobella or some other designer?
