Cate Blanchett Carries Tod’s: Her D-Styling is a D-Light

I probably don’t need to tell you the reason Cate’s geek-chic look (which she flaunted as she shopped in NYC before a performance of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya on July 23rd) worked so flawlessly is her choice of bag. The Tod’s D-Styling Bauletto – in exotic electric purple, no less – is about as luxe as eye-popping carryalls get. Such a statement piece ties together Cate’s boyish shorts and blazer, along with her adorable patent-and-studded kicks and thick black frames.

The D-Styling Bauletto is a modern classic for sure, but in a can’t-miss color and enviable texture, it takes on a whole new significance. Add one of these investment purchases to your collection, in punchy bright orange (at Tod’s for $1,845), a smaller version of sand-and-sky python (at Tod’s for $2,115, from $3,525), or in sumptuous teal or plum piccolo leather (on My Theresa for $1,622). Then take inspiration from Cate and work your own boy-meets-girl style.
