Why The Hills star blew the budget on a Chanel bag

Kristin Cavallari may be best known as the girl who has everything on The Hills, but it’s good to know that celebrities get as excited about their fashion purchases as we do – albeit on a more expensive scale.

Kristin, who recently came out in support of her friend and co-star Heidi Montag and her plastic surgery, sensibly decided to spend her money on accessories. 

‘Oh gosh! I just bought my first Chanel black chain purse. You know you’re a woman when you buy your first Chanel!’ she told Now‘s Style Editor Alison Tay.

Kristin‘s Chanel bag certainly stole the show when she took it for a spin at the AXE Lounge at LIV at Fontainebleau beach resort in Miami for the Super Bowl with her co-stars Stephanie Pratt and Lo Bosworth.

Luckily, if you don’t have a bank balance to rival Kristin‘s, you can get her look without spending the equivalent of two months’ rent.
