Seems that in the end, the hottest ticket for the season is the little black bag. No matter how daring or outrageous the dress, the lbb blends into the mix and adds a bit of class to the situation. Take for example Christina Ricci's ruched red dress and Brian Atwood heels. Saved by her classic black lambskin Chanel bag!
Hillary Swank, impeccable in Calvin Klein with an irridescent black Calvin Klein clutch.
Angelina always wears black, but there's something to be said for consistency. Notice how her lbb doesn't detract from her simple and stunning gown.
Finally, Kristin Cavallari gets a few points in my book; she's wearing a lot of shine and to her credit she's carrying a classic lbb.
In case you haven't picked up a shimmering black bag of your own, I will happily point you in the direction of my new online shop at maryjomatsumoto.com, where you'll find my latest bag collections and a very simple but effective black sequin clutch.
