Pop It Like It's Hot à la Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Every once in a while there’s a craze that takes the fashion world by storm and right now, it’s all about Gucci. The sequinned collars, the coquettish dresses, the dandy jackets – there’s no denying Gucci is having a major moment.
Lucky lady Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has quite literally bagged herself a slice of the action with this pink beauty of a bag. Formally known as Gucci’s Marmont matelassé shoulder bag, it’s the stuff fashion dreams are made of. It’s all I can do not to paw at the screen.
The bag comes in three styles — white, pink and black — and you’re bound to see it on the arms of countless editors and bloggers in every variety, especially with the fashion week rounds coming up. It may be a little too Elle Woods for some, but my Barbie predilections mean the candyfloss hue is the only one for me.
There’s one issue: the price tag. You can make it your own for the princely sum of £1,400, which is pretty hefty unless you’re one of the world’s highest-earning models (which, you may have noticed, I am not).
But! This is what you call a trophy piece. It’s totally worth saving the pennies for if you’re on the hunt for a statement bag that will never go out of style. It would look amazing even with a basic Breton and jeans and you can guarantee that people will still be cooing over it when your daughter nabs it thirty years from now.
Either way, we can all take a cue from Rosie’s peacocking. The model excellently punctuated her double denim look with the perfect colour pop — an easy way to bring an unexpected twist to your outfit.
