Would You Wear Cameron's Big Chanel Bag?

Stars carrying oversize bags is nothing new — from Jessica Simpson to Mary-Kate Olsen to Nicole Richie, big bags have taken over Hollywood. So it says a lot when a hefting bag stops us in our tracks. We cannot stop staring at Cameron Diaz‘s Chanel denim bag — it’s practically big enough to be a suitcase (and at $1395, that wouldn’t be a bad way to make the most of it!). Her Pierre Hardy metallic saddle bag, worn on her other arm, is a lot more our speed. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear Cameron’s denim Chanel bag? Do you wear bags that big?

Isin’t that her dressing trailor right behind her? I think she is on a shoot, carrying things she needs. It is not her purse.

The bag is fine…*but the Jesus sandals are not:/*

That one is a little large for my taste. I do own some big purses, but none that take two hands to carry!

Alana on

sure I’d carry a suitcase around that large.
but bag? come on!

Call me small-town, but I don’t “wear” any bag – I carry it. If it’s big enough for me to “wear”, then it’s too big!

Actually a lot of high-end fashion accessories are made in Europe. Manolo Blahniks and Christian Louboutins are made in Spain or Italy, for example. Dior and Fendi sunglasses are also made in Italy. Also, your reusing-accessories idea would never work–things wear out or go out of style. I don’t think even a environmental-conscious celeb would want to be carrying around a purse circa 2000.

Personally, I think Cameron’s bag is way too huge, although if she’s using it to go shopping, it would make sense (gotta hold all those shopping bags).

Depends. oh, god not the underwear (But that might explain what she could possibly use that 4)
I wouldn’t use it regularly because its bad for ur posture. But to the beach, yeah. and as a messenger bag, ya.

Yes, I have that exact Chanel bag in two colors in patent black and tan and it is great to carry everything in. These particular duffel bags will be one of the accessory pieces for fall 2007-Spring 2008. If you can get one in any version it doesn’t have to be Chanel flaunt it baby! You go Cameron.
