"The way an actress held her purse"

Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway attending the 82nd Annual Academy Awards - E! Red Carpet on 7th March, 2010

"Then we spoke of the movies and verse
and the way an actress held her purse
And the way life at times can get worse"
-Lou Reed ("Wild Child" lyrics)

"It was a dream ticket for Hathaway, and she followed it with a series of roles that deftly balanced flat-out commercial gloss (The Princess Diaries 2, The Devil Wears Prada) with subtler hints of light and shade (playing a wild child in the indie drama Havoc, or the long-suffering rodeo wife in Brokeback Mountain)" Source:

"Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet, and a couple of Boardwalk Empire characters unveil more than just skin in recent nude scenes. Claire Howorth on the NSFW history of the merkin—also known as the wig for down there.
Boardwalk Empire’s cast members are hardly the pioneers of nether-wigs. Jake Gyllenhaal recently told Jimmy Kimmel that his sex scenes with Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs were bare-bodied, save a couple of merkins;Kate Winslet told Allure she wore one for her Oscar-winning role in The Reader, unable to fully grow out her own hair; and Gawker had a field day with Sienna Miller’s au naturel appearance in the yet-to-be-released Hippie Hippie Shake.The intimate toupée’s original purpose was to disguise the symptoms of genital-disfiguring diseases of the Middle Ages, like syphilis".

"Poverty and desperation have driven her into prostitution and she is in the final stages of syphilis, warning the gangster against even a lip kiss. She is played by Claire Trevor, who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, in what was an earlier and surprisingly short role (she only has one scene). Bogart's "Baby Face" Martin is a somewhat deeper character than most that he played at Warners during the same era". Source:

"In 1982, when the starlet turned wig-maker Verita Thompson revealed that for 13 years she was Humphrey Bogart's lover, it surprised many in the film industry as well as admirers of the actor, one of the most iconic in cinema history.
Bogart was also famous for his outwardly ideal marriage to sultry Lauren Bacall

Thompson had a valid reason to be around Bogart – he wore a toupee and she was a wig-maker – and he eventually put her on his permanent staff so that her continued presence could be accounted for". Source:

Humphrey Bogart and Ava Gardner in "The Barefoot Contessa" (1954)

"Even though she was considered quite beautiful and sexy in her day -especially in movies like "The Barefoot Contessa", Ms. Gardner's popularity was unable to boost the use of her given name on American birth certificates. During the height of her reign as Hollywood glamor queen, the name actually fell in the three-digit rankings. Third husband, Frank Sinatra, actually nicknamed his wife "Angel".

Chloe's "Ava" bag is another popular bearer of the name. We don't know if Ava Gardner was the inspiration behind the expensive $1800 bag or not, but why not? It carries the same elegant touch of class and style". Source:
