While we mere mortals have been scrambling to find coupons and holiday deals (some of us going as far as attempting to shop on the terror that is Black Friday), the wealthy find themselves showered with free wares. That’s the most ironic thing about suddenly hitting it rich. All the things you can now afford, people send you for free. That’s the case with mega popstar Rihanna, who tweeted pics of her early Christmas presents. Some of the year’s trendiest It bags arrived at her door with personalized notes and personalized initials embroidered into them for her. One of them is the tartan Prada Bowler bag and the Versace Medusa bag, both of which are really big deal. Too bad we can’t all be famous for beauty and popularity, if that’s what it takes to have designers send you free loot!
Earlier this month, Vogue editor Anna Wintour canceled the Miley Cyrus cover shoot. Recently, another former Disney celeb was spotted leaving meeting with the queen of cool. Could this mean Selena is vying for her own Vogue cover? Selena is cute but her baby face just isn’t Vogue material – yet. In a couple of years when her cheekbones come out and she has more well-known music hits or movies in the pipeline, she might be the perfect cover girl.
The bag she was carrying was the Versace Medusa bag. Being an Italian brand, Versace is known for the Roman-influenced art in their designs. The figurehead on the top of the bag is supposed to be from Greek/Roman mythology. Medusa was known for her magical powers and unruly mane of snakes. Medusa is actually Versace’s brand icon and it makes the piece instantly recognizable as a part of the label.
