Iris Apfel

Iris is proof that age is nothing but a number. At the age of 91, this fashion icon has been the inspiration behind Jimmy Choo’s latest sandals. We can’t imagine this pretty-looking sandal being worn by the brand owner herself (too painful, I’m sure). But the colours assembled are so Iris Apfel.

Alexa Chung

And here’s another fashion guru. Not only does Alexa have a body to die for, but this woman has made her mark in the industry by scoring herself big modeling contracts such as the face of Lacoste's "Joy of Pink" fragrance and Superga’s Italian sneakers. And now Mulberry has designed and named a bag after her; the Alexa bag. Wow!

Victoria Beckham's daughter, Harper

Thanks to her designer mommy Victoria Beckham for naming one of her Autumn/Winter 2012 collection bags after her, Harper has her own print in the fashion industry.


Blake Lively

It comes as no surprise that buddy Christian Louboutin would name this mind-blowing strapless heel after Gossip Girl star Blake Lively. According to the peeps over at Vogue, Blake says, "I went to Louboutin's atelier and I was walking around, like every shoe here is so beautiful and I saw this one pair and I said, 'I've never seen anything like it'."

Kate Middleton

It all began when the Duchess was snapped wearing this Whistles shirt for her official engagement photo. The company later changed the name of the shirt to “Kate” and it was an immediate seller.   Great marketing move? We think so.

Lana Del Rey

Fashion model, song writer and singer Lana Del Rey’s name was also snatched by Mulberry, who named one of their gorgeous bags in her honour.

Jane Birkin

The story behind the bag started when Jane complained to Hermes CEO about the difficulties of finding the perfect leather bag. Later Hermes created the ideal bag and named it Birkin after her and, as they say, the rest was history.   *Hint* It does help to complain; only if you know the right people.
