Remember the fashion storm that the Eiffel Tower bag toted by Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex And The City movie? Well, turns out there are other – even more exotic – ones coming soon. Specifically for Michelle Obama. ‘She is getting a crystal-covered bag from us in the shape of the White House to commemorate her first 100 days as the First Lady,' confessed the designer Timmy Woods. Timmy is at London Fashion Week to showcase her new kitsch bags: ‘Winston', the British bulldog that is a limited-edition of 10 Brit-themed bags, and a crystal-encrusted pooch that is based on Timmy's own poodle. ‘It's based on my dog Juliet. A lot of movie stars buy the dog bag because if they can't take their dog somewhere, they can take their bag!' But it's not just the Americans who have gone crazy over Timmy's bags. Fearne Cotton loves them – she used one at the Brits – as do Pixie Geldof and Leona Lewis. But Timmy gets very animated at the mention of Girls Aloud: ‘Cheryl, call me!' Never mind them... we just want to see Michelle swinging her White House creation off a Jason Wu-encased arm!
