Celebrity Style: Hayden Panetierre and the Coach Gigi Leather Tote

One thing I've noticed about celebrities and their handbags is the fact that most of the "IT" bag carriers are repeat offenders. Of course, I mean that in the nicest way. Take Hayden Panetierre, for instance. This young, talented actress is quickly becoming a fashionista to be reckoned with. Her designer handbag choices, in particular, are constantly scrutinized by fashion editors and for good reason. Hayden has mastered the art of incorporating designer handbags into her wardrobe that run the breadth of the designer handbag hierarchy (yep, there is a handbag hierarchy!). The petite actress looks chic carrying a Kooba or Dooney & Bourke bag just as easily as she does toting a Marc Jacobs or Balenciaga design. That's what I admire about her. She chooses bags that work for her regardless of labels or price tags. We can all take a page from her style book.

Ms. Panetierre recently proved this fashion lesson true with her crisp travel ensemble and yummy designer bag. Hayden brightened up her dark head-to-toe winter wardrobe with the clay-colored Coach Gigi Leather Tote. Who would have imagined grey could brighten up anything? Well Hayden did, and she was right on the money. Her choice of the sold-out grey 'Gigi' tote exemplifies her youthful sense of style and function. The 'Gigi' (also available in whiskey brown and black (shown)) is made from vintage-looking leather and complimented with Coach's signature brass hardware. Features include padded leather top handles, dual front flap pockets with turn-lock closures, front zip pocket, large rear patch pocket and legacy stripe-lined interior with zip, patch and cell-phone pockets as well as a convenient key ring attachment. Factor in the roomy 16 x 14 x 4 dimensions, and it's no wonder Hayden selected the practical and chic Coach Gigi Leather Tote as her travel companion.

While Hayden's tote in clay is simply divine, it's also sold-out on-line. Try your luck at the nearest Coach store or settle for the whiskey or black versions available for $658 via
