Is Jessica Simpson's New Bag Too Big?

03/20/2007 at 05:00 AM ET


Back from a Roman Holiday with boyfriend John Mayer, the Blonde Ambition star showed off another new very yellow and very big Miu Miu bag. The buffalo leather tote, $940, at select Barney’s stores, seems a bit large for dinner. We love the color, called “mimosa” in Italian, but think Jess should try a roomy clutch for a date. What do you think? Is Jess’s new bag too big?

I think the problem with this bag is not the size, its the length of the strap – it’s a tad to long making the bag look bigger because it looks like its being weighed down. I have a bag about this size with a shorter strap – and if we remember many a Gucci bag that are this size w/ a shorter strap – they are much better. I think the bigger problem here is how dark her hair is – she looks washed out and older because of it.

Love the bag, HATE how dark her hair is…she looks gothic…it would look better if she were more tan and had better makeup…seriously, it washes her out so bad…GO BACK TO BLONDE, JESS!!!

I think the bag is a tad large for date night. I am sure she was running errunds and stuff all day, but I would think all that could stay in the car… I love the color. I think it’s great she’s not faux-tan and not faux-blonde. It makes her look more approachable, friendly, and natural. YEAH! Though, I have to give a big BOO! to the photog to captured this moment… I think the flash and the dark space really do nothing for the subject matter. I think the type of flash makes her skin look more fair and her hair more dark. Then again, maybe she’s finally figured out a way to keep that creepy dad of her’s away… with looking more natural and less-Barbie. =)

I’m guessing she had her overnight items in there seeing as though she left with John, one could assume she was spending the night again. Yes her hair is getting too dark and she’s starting to resemble John. In other news, some fans are starting to speculate whether Jess has a baby bump from these photos and ones from Italy. Oh and if you notice, she’s been wearing his watch, and ones he gets her on her right wrist. Looking back at pix, she always wore them on her left. Some wonder if they are secretly engaged or already married.

Too big for anything but travel!

Love the color. Unless you have 3 kids in tow, there is no reason for someone to carry this large of a bag.

Dragonfly on

Buffa-no! Don’t like bags made out of buffalos.

Stephie on

Wow, maybe she can pack a spare boyfriend for when she gets tired of John

I love the bag, it is my favorite of the new season. AND even better, it does not cost $42,000.
