Rooney Mara has become the yardstick for cool– anything she wears becomes an instant cult favorite. Even if it’s a classic 20 year old tote like the “Le Pliage Cuir” bag by LONGCHAMP. Introduced in 1993, my friends and I all own at least one to travel with as it folds into a tiny square. It’s the most sensible and practical bag (translation: dull) I have but somehow she makes it look fresh and chic. Granted, hers is the new leather version but it’s still the same simple tote– I believe it’s Rooney who makes the bag! I mean look at the bag on the right by itself– boring, right? Now look at Rooney carrying it– exciting and I must have it! This is why celebrity placement is so important, my friends.
What about you– what do you think of the bag? $525 at Longchamp.com
