"Emmy" bag for Elie Tahari

Native New Yorker and former Spence girl Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s new series “Shameless,” is adding handbag designer to her list of accomplishments. Rossum is collaborating with designer Elie Tahari on a handbag for Tahari’s Spring 2011 collection, aptly called “The Emmy” (maybe soon the Golden Globe nominated Rossum will have a real Emmy to put in her “Emmy” bag).

The “Emmy” bag will come in four different materials like soft glove leather, natural raffia and metallic leather. Available for $398-$798, the bag will be available this March.

“Emmy has such great unique style and she created a very beautiful bag,” Tahari tells us. “She knew just what she wanted and what the bag had to have in terms of the compartments and inside pockets for her things. It was an exciting collaboration and now she has many more handbags to choose from when she gets dressed in the morning! “

Lucky girl!
