Gwyneth Paltrow Expresses Regret Over Not Stealing a Birkin Bag


Gwyneth Paltrow recently opened up in a ’73 Questions with Vogue’ interview about her fashion regrets, and the style influence of her daughter, Apple. She confessed that she had never stolen anything from a movie set. However, Paltrow soon revealed:

“I’ve actually never stolen anything from set,” Paltrow revealed. “But I wish I had stolen the Hermès Birkin bag from The Royal Tenenbaums.”

The interviewer asked Paltrow if it was too late, to which she laughed and confirmed. The Birkin bag is featured in the classic 2001 Wes Anderson film, “The Royal Tenenbaums,” in which Paltrow played the mysterious character Margot Tenenbaum. Known for her sullen demeanor and signature black eyeliner, Margot’s striped Lacoste tennis dress was completed with a long Fendi fur coat and, of course, that coveted brown Birkin bag.

However, the infamous Hermès Birkin bag isn’t the only item Paltrow would like to steal. When asked what she’d grab from her daughter’s closest, Gwyneth admitted she’d happily take Apple’s jean shorts, highlighting their incredibly close mother-daughter bond. She mentioned that “nothing’s off limits” when sharing closets with her daughter.

Gwyneth also revealed that Apple’s sense of style has a nostalgic touch. Apple’s influence pulls her back to the ‘90s. Meanwhile, Apple is certainly making its mark in the fashion world. At just 19, she debuted at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year in a black and tweed ensemble sitting front row at the Chanel show. Karl Lagerfeld, the late Creative Director of Chanel, even predicted her rise to fashion stardom when he met her at the tender age of four.

Given Gwyneth Paltrow’s longing for the iconic Birkin bag from ‘The Royal Tenenbaums,’ we can’t help but wonder: if you could nab a fashion piece from a movie set, what would it be and why?
