Runway To Sidewalk – Beyonce Knowles Carrying A Christian Dior Samourai 1947 Woven Frame Bag

Beyonce Knowles and hubby Jay-Z were spotted out and about in New York this weekend.

She wore a cute polka-dot playsuit, with a large Chanel waist belt, a pearl necklace, and black peep-toes heels whilst carrying a Christian Dior Samourai 1947 woven frame bag.

The bag was presented during the Fall 2007 presentation, and it’s so interesting and unique it’s actually takes my attention away from her frightful hair do.

The fuchsia leather bag draws inspiration from Japanese basket weaving, with its intricate hand-woven layers throughout the body and strap.

The serpent detail and frame are craved from tortoiseshell, with the Dior logo in a picture frame hanging from a strap.

It truly is an exquisite bag, but despite Beyonce’s look costing thousands of dollars the overall look feels kinda cheap.

This bag is still available to purchase from Bergdorf Goodman for $4,200.

    You described the look perfectly. Her Clothes do look cheap. The hair destoyed the look. That is a Rick James wig!!

    Money doesn’t equal style, and this is just another example of that!
    Nice elements individually (‘cept from the hideous hair), but this outfit is just so tacky looking.

      it’s a perfect example.

      so true. Beyonce is the epitome of overkill, she over accesorizes and ruins what could’ve been a great chic outfit.

      She really needs to learn the mantra “Before you leave the house, take one thing off”. Pearls & Belt are just too much.

    Gorgeous bag, but the woman always looks awful–usually she’s ultra pageanty, but this is straight up swap meet! And that hair–mm, you nailed it! Solange’s sleek new cut just points up how out of date her sister is.

    Surprise surprise, she is not wearing the Samantha Thavasa Disney Collection

    i dont think she looked at the mirror before she left the location, she never looked so strange and kinda ugly before :S

    Except for the ‘Christian Dior’ tag, I love that bag – maybe ten years from now, I’ll find it in a vintage store!

  8. angel August 17, 2009 at 20:26 #

    this is not louboutin shoes!!!

    The bag is utterly divine, but the outfit really lets her down. It’s a shame because she has improved so much with her choices lately.

  10. jules August 17, 2009 at 22:39 #

    There is always something iffy about her whole look…individually, the items are great but all together on her it just looks down right cheap……What can I say about her wig!!!

  11. Sonja August 17, 2009 at 23:27 #

    My God, that bag is a piece of art! And yet that beauty is wasted on somebody with that rag of hair and outfit.
    Ah, life isn’t fair, is it.

  12. nicole August 17, 2009 at 23:49 #

    the hair is bad but a sleek pony tail wud have made her look fierce. i dont see cheap at all its a cute outfit accessorized well.

  13. Martin August 18, 2009 at 02:09 #

    Clearly someone took “off-duty” to mean “messy.” This outfit just confirms for me how intensely I dislike garish designer logo madness. Take off the Chanel belt, and the necklace and …

    • Pen Pen August 18, 2009 at 10:52 #

      Totally agree … actually, she just amazes me of how she can manage to make all those designing pieces she has on look like cheap knock – offs.

  14. Louisa August 18, 2009 at 03:29 #

    She looks like a drowned Mariah (and I don’t think Mariah would ever get a look this wrong)!!

  15. guest August 18, 2009 at 11:41 #

    i reallly, really hate those chanel belts. they always look like some cheap fakes…

  16. Ahot August 18, 2009 at 12:26 #

    clueless bey is back at her best. i especially love the dust mop

  17. Deeva August 18, 2009 at 18:11 #

    I believe the jumper she’s wearing is from Forever 21

  18. Jess August 18, 2009 at 19:29 #

    ugh I always loved this bag! I remember seeing Dita with one, either in red or black. I really want it in either of those colours, the purple doesn’t do it for me.
