In this British Vogue video, the magazine’s May cover star Thandiwe Newton shares the considerable contents of her stylish (and capacious!) Christian Louboutin tote with us.
“At least I’m a hoarder that looks good,” teases the Hollywood actress, as she spills on which goodies go with her on a typical day. And let’s just say she doesn’t travel light.
In addition to two “bags within the bag” – a Louis Vuitton make-up case, and a second to store tampons (“It says ‘Vampire Teabags’… It’s just funny…”) – Newton is carrying a copy of Charlotte Mensah’s ‘Good Hair’, the latest issue of ‘The Economist’, and Tsitsi Dangarembga’s Booker contender, ‘This Mournable Body’.
Sharing space with all that reading material are: make-up she was gifted by her “lovely friend RuPaul”; a notebook (“essench!”); an iPod loaded with Fleetwood Mac; a bottle of Aesop’s Post-Poo Drops – “my husband put this in my bag”, she insists. The Cire Trudon candle, on the other hand, was all her doing. “This was in my dressing room on the Vogue shoot… and I stole it.”
