Sienna Miller and Anne Hathaway are big on the baby Bailey Boo bag from Stella McCartney!
Fresh from picking up her impressive OBE, designer Stella McCartney can add another fashion string to her bow – that of a new It bag! Following in the big footsteps of her chain-trimmed Falabella tote – which has become so popular since it’s inception in 2009 that you can now also pick it up in clutch in an array of colours and faux skins – is the mini Bailey Boo (£670). A cutely named bag x-body in a cute size, the Bailey Boo is a faux python number (remember McCartney doesn’t do real leather, peeps) complete with a chain-link trim, which you can also snap up in a bigger tote form (£800).

We first paid full attention to the Bailey Boo (of which BagSnob.com have named it as their ‘best in faux’) when Stella’s fave girl, model Natalia Vodianova, so longingly clutched it front and centre in the Spring Summer 2013 campaign. A-listers have already caught onto the charms of this new little fella; Sienna Miller carried Bailey Boo for her stage-door exit on the debut night of her latest starring role on Broadway ‘Orphans’, Anne Hathaway did a subtle print clash with her neutral faux-python BB with a summery disty print maxi and Kate Hudson channelled an army-girl vibe with cargo jeans, a tough coat and buckle boots.

As we mentioned above, Stella is no stranger to a fashion phenomenon or four. In addition to the Falabella club (which includes Charlize Theron, Rihanna and Zoe Saldana to name but a few), we will never forget the season of the polka-dot dress of Autumn Winter 2011! The LBD with the sheer mesh spotted-panelling became a figure-fixing sensation, hugging the high profile curves of everyone from Kate Winslet to Live Tyler and Doutzen Kroes. Even Kris Kardashian got in on the act, and replicas spread like a fashion pandemic across the style landscape.
