It was a fashion frenzy as stylish stars like Emmy Rossum, Kristin Davis and Calista Flockhart gathered for the 8th Annual Bag Lunch Event Benefiting P.S. Arts, sponsored by Dior Beauty. More than 200 designer bags were up for bids at the outdoor luncheon held at a private Santa Monica estate — and the competition was fierce. “I really wanted this graffiti Tumi luggage but [was outbid],” said Rossum. So now what is the Shameless actress in the market for? “Something that you can throw a lot in, from SPF to an iPad, so you can just go. And something lightweight.” With summer just around the corner, talk turned to the perfect warm-weather bag. For Flockhart, it’s all about the classics. “It has to be comfortable and it can’t be trendy,” she said, “I don’t want any big label on it. Not that I don’t like brand names, but I just don’t want to see it on the bag.” Event co-chair, Davis, pretty in pink Dior, likes to have a little fun with her summer accessories. “Color is a fun element this year and there’s so much color that you can play. Here not only do you get a beautiful bag but the money goes to charity so you don’t feel so bad spending the money.” Tell us: what’s your summer bag this year? –Michelle Ward
