In the Bag: Inside Mary Alice Stephenson’s Birkin

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

“I am the Master of Ceremonies for tonights Fashion Scholarhip Fund at the Waldorf speaking to over 1000 gusets. I have to rehearse all day and then get my glam on quickly there. So I need to take all my tricks with me to get ready quick and hit the stage looking good.” -Superstar stylist/television fashion star Mary Alice Stephenson.

In Mary Alice’s bag (a Birkin of course):

1. Two pairs of sexy, strappy stilhettos Louboutin and Jimmy Choo. – always good to have a back up in case a heel breaks.

2. Loads of jewelry options that I will decide on just before I hit the red carpet: H. Stern, Ranjana Khan, Alexis Bittar included.

3. Two pairs Wolford Barely There stockings, which always make everyone think my legs are better than they are.

4. Sally Hansen Airbrush Spray to give my skin a little JLo glow.

5. Calvin Klein robe.

6. Lanvin dress.

7. Altoids.

8. Pantene shampoo and conditioner. I’ve been using it since I was a teenager and I love it.

9. Flip Camera for my new video blog and  Blowups for my throat.

10. A Matchbox monster truck in my bag’s pocket that my son gave me for good luck!
