A savvy ingenue wouldn't dare use her beach tote for a lunch date with a director at the Cannes Film Festival. Drapey dresses and open-toed shoes beg for a little structure to tone it up for getting down to serious business. Nothing says “Cast me!” like a sculptural bag with a pedigree. Textured leather points to sensuality lurking beneath the classic black. Tough-chic hardware telegraphs boldness and exacting taste. No casting couch for you—the part is in the bag. ~Laurie Pike
