Much as we love being prepared for every occasion it's time to face the facts ladies, we're not Boy Scouts. There's no need to pack a sleeping bag for a day at the office. We spot a new celebrity tribe opting for 1940's elegance and discover why glamour could be the new form of fashion rebellion.
We spot a trend. Yesterday Brit girl Peaches Geldof dumped the rock/grunge in favour of a polished finish worthy of Audrey Hepburn. When everyone is working the groupie look, it only follows that glamour could be the new rebellious statement - only better looking of course.
She's not the only one - we've spotted a whole host of celebrities recently, out and about, injecting both their downtown and uptown outfits with Dolce & Gabbana's 1940's shoulder bag, the 'Miss Sicily'.
The archetype of elegance, the bag, first spotted on the fall/winter 2009 catwalk is inspired by the charm of southern Italian ladies. Ladies - leave the rucksacks at home and opt for some sophisticated arm candy instead.

Miss Sicily is available now in padded nappa, plissè nappa, patchwork leather, patent leather, and grey leopard print and in black, bordeaux, red, shocking pink, grey, and purple. See it on the catwalk here.
With such a sophisticated following - it's obvious that ìMiss Sicilyì is not about to disappear anywhere fast. Back for spring/summer 2010, she's got a new look - as spotted only days after its Milan catwalk debut on the arm of none other than Madonna.
