Oscar Glamour Is In The Bag

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A celebrity handbag designer is using her Hollywood history to make the red carpet shine at the Oscars this Sunday (Feb. 24).

Kathrine Baumann has designed handbags for screen queens like Cate Blanchett, Diane Lane, Kim Basinger, and Marcia Gay Harden.

Baumann says bright, sparkly bags, as well as floral and animal prints will make a splash as arm accessories at this year’s 80th Annual Academy Awards.

And it’s her own tinseltown past that’s given Baumann an eye for the perfect purse.

Baumann – who starred in an acclaimed episode of MASH and was second choice to play Chrissy Snow on Three’s Company – says, “As an actress, I understand the glamour and excitement of the red carpet. It’s a rush, like designing a great bag, but more immediate.”

No matter who’s carrying her creation, Baumann’s confident her Swarovski-crystal covered bags are always in good hands.

Baumann says, “These girls know how to work it. I mean, how can you make Beyonce look bad? You can’t!”
