Elizabeth Banks was seen leaving The Today Show studios last Thursday morning with a beautifully patterned Alexander McQueen Heroine Tote. You can get Elizabeth’s bag in basic white calfskin leather for $2,595 at Nordstrom. The Heroine made its debut back in 2012, and while we’ve seen it carried by plenty of A-list celebs over the past two years (Jessica Chastain, Lady Gaga), I can’t help thinking this bag should’ve been way more popular than it was/is. It comes in such an alluring variety of patterns and colorways, but perhaps there’s too much stylistic overlap with other bags on the market.
Elizabeth is currently making the rounds to promote her voiceover work in “The Lego Movie”, which, much to my astonishment, is receiving rave reviews across the board. That’s quite a feat for a children’s movie AND a film about Legos. So rest easy knowing that if the kiddos in your life drag you to see this flick over the coming weeks, it won’t be absolute torture.

Longtime PurseBlog readers already know how I really feel about Alexander McQueen’s skull clutches. They are easily my favorite line of evening bags ever, and the legacy of McQueen as a brand always manages to shine through into their design, though a box clutch is a very little canvas. If I had unlimited income, I would collect these bags, and I can not say that any other brand on the market right now.Without question, the Alexander McQueen Cathedral Skull Box Clutch would be the crown jewel of that collection. If I had to take it, the bag would serve as a small gilded cage for my own possessions, but let us face it — this is the type of bag that I’d wish to display instead of use.I’ve has this tote in one of my browser tabs since it first appeared on Net-a-Porter on Friday, and that I keep coming back to stare at it, particularly with the website’s ultrazoom attribute. The specifics of the clutch are absolutely beautiful, and they live up to this “cathedral” name — this is like a very small purse church, and I am here to worship. The only damper on my enthusiasm is that the bag is made of silver-toned brass instead of sterling silver, which we have seen Bottega Veneta use from the occasional box. Even with that in mind, this little evening bag is pretty close to perfection Purchase through Net-a-Porter for $2960. Whenever I see an intense cobalt blue tote, I am in love. If a person requested my favourite color, I would explain to them a very lively and bold electric blue always gets me. That is the reason why tracking down the perfect Celine Mini Luggage Tote was one of my biggest accomplishments in the handbag world to date.When I opened up Net-A-Porter. Com today, I got that same feeling of joy upon seeing another pretty blue bag. But this is not a Celine bag, it’s an Alexander McQueen bag. To further my love, the Alexander McQueen Cites Chanter Hobo Bag is made out of supple matte python skin that is my favorite way to see the skin used. DROOL.
