Cocktail parties are a dime a dozen this time of year. The limited-edition Standard clutch that was the cause célèbre at Reed Krakoff’s Madison Avenue get-together is decidedly not. In fact, only 15 of the envelope-style clutches have been made in exotic ayer skin (that’s watersnake, to you and me), in a range of colors from racing green to denim blue to metallic copper. That makes it just about the most exclusive item you could put on your holiday wish list this year. But may we suggest that your Secret Santa acts fast?

The hand-numbered clutches are available exclusively at Krakoff’s Madison Avenue boutique.

Cindy Crawford was once the biggest Super of them all; now, she says, she feels like an outsider. “I just saw the CoverGirl commercial with Taylor Swift and I thought, ‘Wow, it is so hard for models to get a job these days,’ ” she told an interviewer. “You have to sing and act, too. There doesn’t seem to be as much work specifically just for models. And I also think when I was modeling, size 6 was a normal size and now it’s like 2 or 0.” [Fashionologie]
