Celebrity Style: Miley Cyrus and the Louis Vuitton Mahina XS

Here's a funny fact about yours truly: I've never had a Starbucks coffee. No, I haven't grown alien antenna or anything like that. In fact, we have a Starbucks in the middle of Coral Gables and a short walk from our home. Yet I've never felt the need to go out for a "coffee run" as practically every celebrity in LA does. My husband thinks people who sit outside Starbucks sipping coffee in 90 degree weather are merely posers, and I can't argue with him on that point. It is pretty ridiculous to chug a mug of hot coffee in the sweltering heat. These celebrities can't seem to stay away from the famed Seattle coffee company. I'm beginning to think it's a rite of passage being photographed with a Starbucks cup in your hand. Here's Hanna Montana star Miley Cyrus at the tender age of 16 with her cup of joe in one hand and the Louis Vuitton Mahina XS hanging from her shoulder.

Miss Cyrus is carrying some serious arm candy, ladies. Measuring 17 x 10 x 5, the Mahina XS is a big 'ole bag for little Miley. That doesn't mean it isn't a totally yummy bag. The soft leather exterior features a perforated monogram pattern that's to die for. What a chic and refreshing alternative to the classic LV monogram pattern that's been done to death. The fold-over tab with press-lock closure and zippered top are done with LV's traditional aged brass hardware. The adjustable shoulder strap converts the 'Mahina' from a shoulder bag to a cross-body design, and the adjustable side buckles achieve a more contoured look by providing a soft pleated effect.

The Mahina XS comes in 5 colors - chocolate, biscuit, elephant grey, black and Miley's plain grey version. Good thing the young singer/actress is insanely rich because the Mahina XS is priced just shy of $3000. Wow! Plunking down that sort of cash for a bag would likely see me making a liquor store run, not a trip to Starbucks.

Louis Vuitton Mahina XS available for $2990 via LV's website
