Designer to the Stars LANA MARKS In Dubai talks fame, fashion and her celebrity following.

07 Hello3 08 Hello4

As Dame Helen Mirren stepped up to the podium to accept her Oscar for Best Actress, she looked every inch the iconic movie star. Dressed elegantly in a sumptuous Christian Lacroix gown, The Queen star was undoubtedly the belle of the ball. “Here I am with my purse…” she said waving her U.S. $250,000 diamond studded Cleopatra Clutch from Lana Marks. The 62-year-old actress was clearly captivated by her precious purse – and she’s not the only one. Mirren is just one of the many red carpet regulars who opted to cary a Lana Marks bag on Hollywood’s biggest night of the year. Charlize Theron, Kate Winslet and Jennifer Aniston are also fans.

But it’s not just the Oscars that signals the arrival of the much-coveted carriers. They’ve been the toast of the Sex and the City girls in more than one episode of the show, and most recently ditzy law graduate Elle Woods carried one during the Broadway version of Legally Blonde. Fellow famous customers include the lat Princess Diana, who had one custom-made and Ophra Windfrey, who never leaves home without it.

However, despite the star following, handbag designer Lana Marks is modest, “I’m taking things slowly and I’m just glad my designs are well liked.” Not exactly the words one would expect from a woman who has had mingled with Royalty and socialized with Hollywood legends such as Cary Grant and Elizabeth Taylor. HELLO! caught up with the South African born designer during her recent trip to Dubai, to talk current trends and celebrity shoppers. Continue reading ‘Designer to the Stars Lana Marks Visits Dubai’
