Katie Holmes was a fashionista in full-force in the early years of the TomKat whirlwind romance. In the last few years, the actress has seemed like she’s deathly tired of the media attention. To ward off press attention and paparazzi hound dogs, the young mom stopped stepping out looking like a million bucks.

It seemed like she just wanted to blend in and be left alone. Now and then however, she’s spotted carrying a cool bag or wearing interesting shoes. Bags seem to be more of her thing though. (She’s been spotted wearing the same boots all of last season, shockingly.)

This bag has two flaps and creates the funny illusion that the viewer’s vision has doubled. The optical trick makes you look at it more intensely, a cooler way of getting someone to notice your bag than having a logo plastered on it. This quirky design shows that the bag isn’t just a run of the mill mass-produced item, it was designed by someone who puts thought and creativity into their work.

Even though Katie looks like a miffed superstar with her oversized sunglasses, cold steely glare and designer bag, she’s traveling on New York’s subway like an ordinary commoner just like the rest of us. Seems like a woman who is grounded, down to earth, highly fashionable but very weary of the media scrutiny, even though some speculate she engineers her life to keep public interest growing. What do you make of this leading lady and her complicated yet intriguing life and fashion sense?

When you’re wealthy enough and famous enough to be able to carry a different bag 365 days a year, it really sticks out when you favor one bag over another. Like Lauren Conrad and her Alexander Wang bag, Katie Holmes has developed a strong attachment to her Chloé Python Marcie Hobo. The unique shape of this bag, its classic demeanor, super soft and luxurious leather, and flap detail make this one of the most covetable bags of the year. The Chloé label radiates sophistication and minimalism. It makes sense that Holmes would be drawn to Chloé. The label perfectly suits Holmes and her projected style ethos. This bag suits Holmes as well: it is stylish, fashion forward, and yet still classic.

If you’ve fallen in love with this gorgeous everyday bag, but get sticker shock at the $3,735 price tag, you will LOVE our Hot Designer Style Leather Bag. It comes in 4 yummy shades and rivals the Chloé for feel, look, but not price. In that category, we definitely win, because our bag is only $64.
