Celebrity Style: Jessica Simpson and the Gucci Babouska Boston Bag

"Jessica...Jessica Simpson...Yes, I'm talking to you. If you read these words, please heed my advice - step away from the 'Daisy Dukes'. Forget you ever saw a pair or played their namesake in a god-awful movie. They are tacky, my dear, and not very fashion-forward."

Before I'm accused of being a hater (which I'm not), I'm basing my request on the fact that Jessica Simpson is a beautiful woman who doesn't need the help of cut-off denim shorts to attract attention. Yet, as much as those 'Daisy Dukes' scream "Look at me, look at me", her handbag makes a much louder statement. I'm going on the record with this one, ladies. Me no likey the Gucci Babouska Boston Bag - AT ALL. Except for its' rich, red leather, I can't find one thing I like about it. The tassels, over sized stud detailing throughout and giant, heart-shaped Gucci embellishment on the front are just pure overload. I get nauseated just looking at the thing. So, when coupled with 'Daisy Duke' shorts, you've got the makings of one hot mess! Sorry, Jess.

    I understand why you might not like the Daisy Dukes but the thing is the girl has fantastic legs. It's summer. She's young. I don't have any problems with the Daisy Dukes. Though I'll never understand the humongo bags ladies want to tote around.

    I agree with you. She has amazing legs. That's why she has so many options at her disposal to show them off. Another, more fashionable pair of shorts,perhaps a romper or mini dress, but Daisy Dukes, IMO, are incredibly drab and only appropriate at the beach, cleaning around the house or gardening in your yard. She could do better I think. Wish I had her legs, though ;-)
