Celebrity Style: Rachel Bilson and the Jimmy Choo Kiki Bag

In case you've never read any of my other Rachel Bilson rants, let me just reiterate how much I love this girl. When I grow up (or down - "reverse aging") I want to be just like her. I love her personality, her sense of style and her drop-dead gorgeous boyfriend (my husband knows I have a serious crush on Hayden so it's OK). Lately, Rachel's adopted a bohemian/folksy/safari style. It's hard to pinpoint exactly why this mishmash works on her, but it does. Her latest boho-style choice is from Jimmy Choo's heavily advertised spring/summer '09 collection. The Kiki Bag is your basic, fold-over flap shoulder bag crafted from a patchwork of ponyhair, snakeskin, and textured leather and features a tortoise shell chain-link shoulder strap. OK, so it's not really "basic". It's downright spectacular!

I would normally not favor anything like this, but Rachel knows exactly how to pull it off. By keeping her outfit monochromatic, the bag becomes the focus and doesn't compete for attention. I think she and her Jimmy Choo bag look absolutely fabulous. Contact your local Jimmy Choo boutique to get wait-listed (duh!) for this baby or nab the equally chic Kaja Hobo on-line for a cool $2695.
