Rachel Zoe adds Maria Sharapova to her client list that carries her Leiber bags

With the US Open looming, Maria Sharapova is keeping her tennis outfit top secret, telling reporters at a Tag Heuer launch at Bloomingdales, New York, that “It’s a surprise”.

Wearing a black See by Chloe minidress and red pumps she was definitely channeling her stylist, Rachel Zoe’s, other clients. She also added that she has “separate outfit[s] for my day and night games.”

In other related news, have you noticed the clutches that Mischa Barton and Nicole Ritchie have been carrying at red carpet events?

Well remember that Rachel Zoe had teamed up with Judith Leiber to design two red carpet-worthy bags? They have surfaced now… and naturally cost through the roof with the prices ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 (and that’s in US dollars).

The “Cleopatra” clutch bag and “Medusa” soft hobo bag, will be made from a variety of materials, from alligator to metallic suede – which also means a myriad of colours. Each bag will feature customized snake hardware, that the Los Angeles Times says was inspired by an old French doorknocker.

Though it seems to resembles the snake hardware on a Christian Louboutin satin shoe.

Zoe reportedly claimed to have taken her bags out every night at the Cannes Film Festival and sold around 50.
Well if you’re clients are sporting them around the world, who wouldn’t buy one? (Ok I wouldn’t, but hey I’m not fond of Rachel Zoe and her identically dressed clients). They will be available to us mere mortals online at the Judith Leiber online boutique, as well as in various Juidth Leiber stockists.
With her birthday party to be covered exclusively by Harpers Bazaar… she is getting a tinsy tiny bit over exposed don’t you think?
