Celeb Style: Rihanna's YSL Tote (And Its Affordable Knock-Off)

What: YSL Patent Leather Downtown Medium Tote, $1,895

Spotted: On on Rihanna plus on the arms of celebrities all over town

Why: We mentioned this purse last summer, when it made the newest arm candy for plenty of stars. But what we like about this patent leather version is the additional shine and quilted detailing that makes an already luxe bag turn even more heads.

Of course, we're also happy to report that you don't need a bank account the size of Rihanna's to afford a look-a-like version. Check out the Faux Croc Highland Tote ($52) at Baghaus. Looks awfully similar, huh?


We think so, and although we know up close you probably wouldn't mistake it for the pricier model, we think this is an affordable way to get the celeb look. Wear it to the office to really add some spark to your office attire.

Get Yours: Neiman Marcus or Baghaus
