Celebrity Style: Jessica Simpson and the Roberta di Camerino Blue Velvet Caravel Bag

So apparently Jessica Simpson is "officially dating" Smashing Pumpkins front man, Billy Corgan. Whatever. When I saw this pic of the new couple, it wasn't the fact that they were together that baffled me, it was seeing Jessica carrying a bag by famed designer Roberta di Camerino. Let's face it, Jessica is more of a Louis Vuitton gal. There's nothing wrong with that. She's been known to mix it up from time to time, but Roberta di Camerino? Who knew Ms. Simpson was even familiar with the iconic label or its equally famous designer? OK, maybe she doesn't know Roberta di Camerino from Roberta Flack. The point is that Jessica is slowly traveling out of her comfort zone and embracing more fashion-forward labels.

Now you're probably thinking to yourself "Roberta di Camerino is fashion-forward?". The answer is a resounding YES! In fact, di Camerino has been responsible for chic, envelope-pushing bags since the 50s. Jessica's blue velvet Caravel Bag, from the label's fall 2009 collection, is kitschy and refined all at once. Those results can only be achieved by the best designers like Roberta di Camerino. The aged designer was still going strong when her label was bought out. It seems the new creative director has seen fit to offer updated versions of RdC designs that remain respectful of their famous pasts.

Not only has Jessica Simpson found love once again, but her recent trip to Barneys also gave the singer a new designer bag. Here's hoping Jess appreciates the fine piece of vintage handbag design she's toting, and continues on her journey toward more fashion-forward arm candy.
