There’s a few things you will have to follow in this new Transformers 3, Dark of the Moon, aside from the glorious special effects. At least as far as I am concerned. The first one, biensur, is Rosie Huntington – Whiteley’s acting (as opposed to Megan Fox).
Then there’s the inevitable product placement you will be confronted with during the movie. And I’m not talking about iPads (though you will notice at least one) or Cisco routers. I’m talking fashion, baby! Fashion! If I will have to notice Transformers accessories – Louis Vuitton and Hermes bags! Yes, not even on the Dark Side of the Moon you can’t stay away from LV and Hermes, nor can you hide from Michael Bay’s white clothing ambition!
So if you happen to get inside the theatre for a full action packed Transformers session and Michael Bay’s distinctively explosive style won’t numb your fashion attention, then you may be able to find there’s a Hermes Birkin Green Ostrich bag starring in this flick! Right next to a Louis Vuitton.
Where / who? In a key scene next to Frances McDormand’s character, Charlotte Mearing. Although the bag is carried along by her Asian aide (played by Keiko Agena), Charlotte’s Mearing character gives specific details about wanting to be handed the Hermes Birkin green ostrich bag. Please, if you heard differently, step forward and give me a hand here – was that really a Birkin she was referring to? I remember the golden lock but I don’t recollect the exact details of the design!
I would love to continue this Transformers story, it’s as entertaining as it gets, however, you’ll have to tell me if you’d like that too. Come, come, let’s talk some Michael Bay, Transformers and anything (cliché) in-between! (photos via)
