It’s not the easiest challenge to steal the limelight from the likes of Adriana Lima and Chrissy Teagan on the red carpet. But Zendaya did this week – with a little help from a velvet-skinned support act.

The actor walked the red carpet outside Day 1 of the 5th Annual Beautycon Festival in Los Angeles, as a special guest alongside the likes of John Legend, Kelly Rowland, Jaden Smith, Ireland Baldwin, Ashley Tisdale, as well as Lima and Teigan, who both draw attention on runways for a living.

There was no ignoring her bright yellow satin cropped culottes, but what made GRAZIA collectively stop to draw breath was the new season Velvet Cahier Bag by Prada worn as a crossbody over her plain white tee. Talk about being an attention seeker. (We mean the bag, not the girl, course.)

Not surprisingly, there’s more to this handbag that meets the eye. Though it looks like it’s simply a printed velvet, the individual coloured sections are actually patchworked together in the highly technical tromp l’oeil style.

This Prada bag is available at the Sydney Westfield boutique for $3880

Little wonder the price for this range – which includes other colourways for this purse and a bucket style – starts at a robust $3880. The best news though is that unlike many limited edition statement bags and one-offs borrowed by celebrities, this one is now available to customers. Right now, you can find it at the flagship Prada boutique in Westfield Sydney.

Softer than a teddy bear and one hundred percent fewer calories than a similarly-hued McHappy Meal. What’s not to love?
