Talk about three different bags from three completely different women. Style-wise, Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon and Sienna Miller are miles apart from each other. While Jennifer and Reese share that comfortable mom-on-the-go look in common, Reese is more of a fashion risk taker, particularly after her split from ex-husband Ryan Phillipe. Then we have Sienna Miller who is pretty much all over the place. Let's see which bag styles these actresses prefer.
Of all three celebrities, Sienna's Marc Jacobs Robert Jennifer Shoulder Bag is the most interesting and yet, in my opinion, the most unappealing. The leather versions of this Marc Jacobs design run about $2000, and they're not worth the price tag. The quilted leather exterior and chunky resin/chain shoulder strap are fun, but the pattern, even on the basic colors like her black version, is too busy. A monochromatic color scheme is a better choice when there are so many competing details on a bag. If you're interested in the Robert Jennifer Shoulder Bag, it's from Jacobs' Spring '09 collection and is currently on sale in a striking purple color at luisaviaroma.com and a more toned down light brown via bluefly.com.
Reese Witherspoon's Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch is an "urban chic" option that, when slung across the body and paired with a head-to-toe black outfit, is simply flawless. This is a great choice for any woman that wants the practicality of a shoulder bag and the trendiness of a clutch. It measures a comfortable 11 x 8 x 2 and comes in several colors. Reese's black version is available for $330 via The Trend Boutique.
Busy mom and actress Jennifer Garner is carrying one of my favorite designs from 2009 - the re-styled D Shopping Bag from Tod's. Thanks to designer Derek Lam's amazing eye for subtle detailing, the updated version Jennifer is carrying retains its timeless appeal while looking both classic and modern all at once. Jennifer's clay version is available at styledrops.com at the slightly inflated price of $1519. You can also check out a light brown version of the bag priced at $1156 at bluefly.com.
