Yay, we are so glad we have our first Histoire sighting!
We would have probably chosen a simpler outfit though and let the bag do all the talking! Much like the two ladies below!
There is a reason why Bottega Veneta is a must have for every A-lister and bonafide fashionista, it is timeless, classic, sophisticated, made with impeccable style, and immeasurable quality! No one can do inter-woven leather better than them! It is discreet and the lack of logos and branding only seal the deal. Its quality, finish and design are enough to set it in a whole different league!
While pricey, if you can afford it, its a great piece to own! Start with a basic black, like the one below, its timelessness will assure its longevity!

On the left, thats Nandita Mahtani at the opening of Bollywood Mischief and on the right, there she is again, spotted at the Lakme India Fashion Week in the exactly same outfit, once more! While its heartening to see celebrities repeat their clothes too, but twice in less than a month, that too at events you know you will be photographed is not exactlly fly, is it?
On an aside, also spotted her at the Gucci launch party in a great looking dress!
She is carrying the new Gucci clutch (Crystal evening bag with Swaroski detail, Fall/Winter) in black patent but I don’t care for it much. Those tassels just don’t work for me! But here it is in Gold, and if it appeals to you, go for it!

Bipasha Basu and Preity Zinta were both at the Gucci launch party and while both went with long black gowns, the former chose to accent hers with gold and the latter with silver! And now, you have to decide who looked better!
And in case you are wondering whats the clutch that Preity is carrying, it is but of course a Gucci, more specifically, a Gucci ‘Mirror’ evening bag! And you can have it too!

And Bipasha’s clutch has been making quite an appearance among the celebrities! It too is a Gucci clutch.

.. for us anyway!
The book launch in question was the photo-essay book about Sunil and Nargis Dutt written by their daughters Priya and Namrata. As usual, not only were the who’s who of Mumbai present but also making an appearance were their bags!
We (Well Heeled and I) couldn’t stop “oooh-ing” the uber-expensive Bottega Veneta Lizard clutch carried by Gauri Khan. (Life is really good when you are SRK’s wife!)

We also caught Simi Garewal carrying her favorite, the LV Suhali L’Aimable shoulder bag.
