It-Bag Alert: Mischa, Sienna and Lindsay Have the Latest Chanel

05/08/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Whether on the red carpet or running errands in L.A., Chanel has always been a favorite of Hollywood’s “it” girls. Mary-Kate Olsen even wrote an ode to her classic red Chanel bag. This season, stylish starlets are scooping up the Chanel 2.55 handbag in patent calfskin, white, black or ruthenium metal. Like all things Chanel, the flap bag doesn’t exactly come cheap. Sold exclusively at select Chanel boutiques, it carries a hefty price tag– $2675 to be exact (call 800-550-0005 to order). Luckily, you can get the look at for a more reasonable $120. Tell us: Would you ever splurge on a real Chanel bag?

I will splurge on a CHANEL bag. buying it means buying a 100 bags because CHANEL bags are always versatile anf timelessly chic! worth every cent of the purchase. anyway, i was thinking of having a big splurge on this too:

I don’t think I would. I would love to get a designer bag someday but I just don’t like this one (or any classic Chanel for that matter). However, I think it’s pricey but not too expensive since it’s definitely a good investment and a true classic will last forever.

i would definitely splurge on a chanel bag…in fact i have a chanel fund right now that i’m saving up for slowly. its classic and will never ever go out of style

no. i guess i’m in the minority on this one, but i would NEVER pay that much for a purse. i don’t care how “timeless” it is. i couldn’t justify the cost when there are so many cute, chic and affordable options out there. i guess i feel that way because i have a family– if i have an extra three grand lying around i’m going to put it in a college fund for my son, not blow it on a bag to haul my crap around in. maybe if i was single and only had me to buy for i would splurge.

i have a black quilted one with patent interlocking c’s and a special edition hot pink interior. i love it. classy and timeless, one of the most favorite handbags i own. WORTH the saving up for and splurge!!

Elaine on

I would splurge on a Chanel bag and already have! (The first and last Chanel splurge or my life though!!)

Julie on

No. I have so many other things that are more important to me to spend my money on. I try to stay very reasonable when buying clothes. I don’t limit myself to Target and Walmart, but I do stay on the sale racks at the stores in the mall and buy clothes/accessories very infrequently.

Thank you for the bag replica site! Does anyone have anymore sites they can share?

Only if I wanted to look completely unoriginal.
Why strive to copy the generic when there is so much choice out there?
