Celebrity Style: Taylor Momsen and the Be&D Garbo Satchel

Confession time, ladies - I've never watched Gossip Girl. Perhaps it's the fact that I find myself annoyed by a program that shows 15 and 16 yr olds toting $2000 bags as if this were, like, no big deal. I'm also not interested in the lives of spoiled prep school kids who have the personality of a door knob (no offense to door knobs). Of course, in the end, I can't help but admire the wide array of arm candy on display during any given episode. The stylists on the show really do offer viewers everything from moderately-priced designer labels like Treesje, Kooba and L.A.M.B. to über expensive bags from Bottega Veneta, Chanel and Nancy Gonzalez. As much as I love to pour over photos from the set of Gossip Girl to see what bags the characters are carrying, I'm even more intrigued to know what the actresses themselves tote around on an average day.

Here we have the youngest cast member, Taylor Momsen, with the always chic Be&D Garbo Satchel. The dynamo designers responsible for Be&D's 'glam rock' designs made studs cool before every other designer caught on. The Garbo Satchel is the perfect choice for this 16 yr old actress. It's youthful and edgy, and doesn't make her look like a fashion victim. It measures 15 x 9 x 5.5 so it's as practical as it is stylish. Plus the leather on this bag is quite supple allowing it to slouch and settle nicely. Let's note that Taylor has enough attitude to pull this entire look off. She looks age appropriate and pretty fantastic in my opinion, but it's the 'Garbo' that really pulls this look together. I may not be a fan of her show, but I'm a definite fan of Momsen's downtown style and handbag taste.
