Beach Babe

Chanel's hula hoop beach bag was the biggest OMG moment of Fashion Week, but they won't be hitting the local shops anytime soon. But Alexa Chung managed not only to nab one of the bags for herself, she got a bespoke one. "It seems like a buoyancy aid too, you could really pad it out," she said about the bag, which (jealous!) has her initials on it. Maybe she can carry around proofs of her upcoming style book in it. The bag (a replica?) was a gift from Anderson Cooper, but we're hella jealous nonetheless. [Vogue UK]
