Celebrity Style: Eva Mendes and the Valentino Rose Vertigo Tote

I wasn't planning on writing about the Valentino Rose Vertigo Tote. When I tried it on, I knew it wasn't for me. I prefer the Valentino Rose Petale Tote to the more structured 'Vertigo'. Then I came across this photo of Eva Mendes carrying the tote and was intrigued by the manner in which she carries it.

Instead of opting for the top handle style the bag is made for, Eva pulls the thick leather strap though the loops to achieve a long and more comfortable shoulder strap. It definitely solves the "comfort" issue, but I have to say it does nothing to enhance the bag or Eva's overall look. It doesn't look bad, but, then again, it doesn't look great either. In the end, Eva is stuck with a bag she's had to alter to make it more her style.

Before I receive comments about the strap and how cool it looks this way, let's get real here. She altered it because it was a pain in the you-know-what to carry any other way. The 'Vertigo' is not meant to be worn that way. She'd be better off buying an entirely different bag for way less. If you're feeling this bag, I'd recommend the to-die-for grey version (pictured) I tried out. It brings a softness to the design I know many of you would appreciate.
