I'm not sure who January Jones is, but I nearly died when she showed up at the 2009 Emmy Awards in this gorgeous Versace gown! Why blend in with the crowd when you can wear a white chiffon gown with a futuristic bodice featuring cut-out detailing? I loved it so much that I was inspired to check out Versace's fall lineup to see what bags peaked my interest. Believe it or not, I have never featured a Versace bag on BAGPOOR, because I'm not a huge fan of the brand. It screams, "I'm in Miami trick!" I feel the same way about Roberto Cavalli. It's just a matter of preference. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the Socialite Satchel. Versace never follows trends! I mean, look at this bag. It's structured navy blue patent leather with silver hardware. It's not slouchy, oversized, or plum and it doesn't have any studs or gold chains. This truly is the perfect bag for a socialite that doesn't follow trends, but instead purchases high quality statement pieces that she can wear season after season...year after year. Purchase HERE for $3600.
The Socialite Satchel is also available in python for $4890 at select Versace boutiques!
By the way, there are some amazing quotes from Donatella and Gianni that I have been meaning to share with all of you.
- "Fashion is all about happiness. It's fun. It's important. But it's not medicine." Donatella
- "You can't pretend that everybody likes Versace. It would be boring. It's better to create a reaction than to create no reaction. That's dangerous." Donatella
- "Don't be into trends. Don't make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress." Gianni
- "You dress elegant women. You dress sophisticated women. I dress sluts." Gianni
