Awards season has finally come to an end, and what fashion lessons can be learned from them? Mainly, the importance of hiring a stylist. The right stylist, that is. I'm not certain who Twilight star and supporting actress nominee Anna Kendrick's stylists are, but they should command a nice paycheck for the fabulous job they did with her. Anna's Oscar gown was romantic and her overall look was divine. Complimenting her heavenly look was, what else, a Judith Leiber bag.
The Garden's Gate Minaudiére is the perfect foil for Kendrick's ethereal vibe. The bag, made to resemble an actual gate, is encrusted with pink, grey and clear Austrian crystals and features an encrusted push-lock closure and scalloped edges.
Let's hope Anna didn't shell out $3295 of her own money for this evening bag. It's certainly beautiful, and I'm sure the materials and craftsmanship justify the price, but that's still pretty steep for a tiny bag. I'm sure Kendrick's crafty stylist scored the expensive Leiber design for free as most nominated actresses do.
