Case Closed: Amber Rose (again!) and the Louis Vuitton mink bum bag

Kanye West and Amber Rose

The Fashion Police would like to say a very special “thank you” this week to Amber Rose, who’s been helping us with a number of our enquiries: we’re sure you’ll remember how Amber helped us answer the question “Who the hell would wear THAT jacket?” yesterday, and now she’s also been of great help in solving the mysterious case of the Louis Vuitton mink bum bag/fanny pack.

We had to delve deep into our archive to find the original file on this one. Only the most dedicated of readers will remember the original articleΒ on this, from December 2006, but Amber obviously has a long memory, and has been patiently waiting for just the right occasion to wear this bad boy.

We originally wanted to speak to this item in relation to three separate allegations:

1. That is was a bum bag

2. A MINK bum bag

3. That it is covered in Louis Vuitton’s distinctive logo, which some people would argue is more or less the same as having “Fashion Victim” stamped all over your clothes.

Now that we’ve had the chance to review the new evidence supplied by Amber Rose however, we’d like to add a forth charge:

4. It is freaking HUGE. Seriously, we had no idea. It’s like the size of a normal bag, only you wear it around your waist. We guess some people might find that handy, but do you, readers? Do you?

    I was wondering when you were going to post this! When I saw it on CocoPerez I was shocked about the size aswell! Not to mention the pure ugliness of the LV print..

    Wow, it’s even uglier when you see it being worn!

    And I’m glad I’m not the only one who detests items covered in some designer’s logo.

      I absolutely loathe visible logos – just screams “fashion victim” to me, although I know a lot of people seem to love them!

    At least it warms her stomach, as she seems to be freezing. (I wonder how that can be if you wear a crop top and no socks in january…)
    Would somebody please tell her, that there’s a neat invention called “gloves” that you can use to keep your hands warm? You don’t need ugly monstrosities like this to do the job.

    This bum bag and the jacket yesterday are both cruelty to animals in the worst sense.

    Is this really a bum bag? Isn’t it that quaint ol’ thing that women wore in the nineteenth century called a muff?

    (chuckles at Charlie) I had one of those as a kid… anyway, I must admit to occasionally wearing bum bags, but only when I hike, run, or bike. And it’s a tasteful deep blue, small one. Something like this has no excuse.

    well as much as i hate amber’s head-to look most especially the LV fanny pack, does any one else think that Kanye looks tacky as hell also?
    what is up with that coat of his?

    Y’know, if that thing was hung around her neck instead of her waist, it’d be a muff. An ugly muff, but at least it wouldn’t be a bum bag.

    Oh three horrible fashion trends for the price of.. I’m sure it’s over priced. Especially since it looks generally worthless to me. In my eyes fur is just plan tacky but LV took the tacky to a whole new level.

    I think it’s safe to say that dating Kanye West will inevitably ruin any possibility of dressing oneself decently. Seriously, has she worn something that isn’t a furry monstrosity lately?

    Also, I too hate the whole “label whoring” thing. I wont buy things that have their labels across them or blatantly visible. The only reason you’d buy something with its label plastered all over it like that would be because you need to show that you CAN buy it. Which just strikes me as tacky. It’s as bad as wearing harem jumpers because they’re “all the rage”.

    poor mink, died for nothing.
    i am wondering about the weather there; so it`s cold enough to wear a fur coat but hot enough to wear a short top with a view of your belly?

    Anyone who’s dating Kanye West would be good at making bad decisions by now. This is one of those bad decisions.

    AWWWW….That’s not a fanny pack. Her hands are being warmed (or eaten) by the new LV genetically modified mink python hybrid.
