Keira Knightley's Must-Have Bag Sells Out

03/20/2007 at 05:47 PM ET

Frantic fashionistas (yes, okay, myself included) waited in line for hours in London this morning in hopes of snagging the latest must-have designer bag. The I’m Not A Plastic Bag by Anya Hindmarch has been spotted the arm of Keira Knightley, it has an eco friendly message and wait for it… costs just £5 (or $10)!!! So off I go, at 9:30 AM, and I see a crowd of 300 or so people standing in the freezing cold outside the Knightsbridge store, yikes! With only a limited number on sale I decided to hot foot it to the department store Harvey Nichols and got there just in time to see a crowd running (yes, actually running) through the front doors. Walking through the store’s designer bag department amongst the Mulberry’s and Chloe’s seemed ironic but it was worth it, as bag in hand, I leave the store, triumphant . . . after all I have to do my bit for the environment, right? — Monique Jessen

Well remeber she is 5’7 and it kinda makes a person look thinner.And in Bend it Like Beckham she was pretty thin anyways,although I do think the poor girl overworks herself x]

The bag isn’t great at all and the only reason people even think that it is is because the STARS are supporting it. The bag is not creative at all. KMART

Any bag that promotes the environment is good! And celebrity’s are allowed to look like us common folk. Do you glam to run out and buy the newspaper?
And when is everyone going to stop talking about stick thin, aneorexic, chubby, fat? Get over it, you are who you are.

You’re right… don’t have to look glam, but my god…she looks like she’s dying but then again I guess some people like heroin chic.

Got it ages a go; loads of room and nice detailing ‘we are what we do’

But – Miranda from Sex and The city; had a bag like this only it was over the shoulder ‘dont use plastic bags’

wow, apparently becoming a celebrity means people lose their self restraint when talking about you. Does her celeb status indicate that she lost her feelings and has the right to be talked about in such a way? I wonder if a picture was posted of us in a daily paper and we were to be picked apart for everyday we looked like we normally do, would be as thick skinned as we expect them to be?
