Edinburgh designer known for Meghan Markle bag sees new design worn by The Princess Switch 3’s Vanessa Hudgens
The Princess Switch 3 actress Vanessa Hudgens stopped off at South Queensferry yesterday to take in the sights on a break while filming the anticipated Christmas film, shining a light on not just the stunning tourist sights - but a local designer as well.
The California-born star posed for pictures with a Scottish iconic landmark in the background - the Forth Bridge, but hanging from her shoulder was a bag from Strathberry’s new spring/summer 2021 collection.
Hudgens, who is staying in the luxurious Balmoral Hotel, wore Strathberry’s new season Lana Midi bucket bag in black and vanilla which retails for £495.
The 32-year-old actress posted the series of photos of what seems to be a cold winter's morning with the caption “Hi, I’m Vanessa and I love bridges and scrunchy socks. Lol.”
They pictures since racked up almost 750,000 likes from her 40.4 million followers.
Edinburgh-based Strathberry recently opened their flagship store on Multrees Walk just in time for Christmas with the brand going from strength to strength over the past few years.
The company was founded in 2011, opening its first shop in the Capital’s Grassmarket in 2013.
The company saw a surge in popularity in 2017 after Meghan Markle carried one of their handbags during her first official public appearance in Edinburgh with her fiancé Prince Harry.
After getting some of the ‘Markle Sparkle’ - Meghan’s own version of the ‘Kate Middleton effect’ on shoppers - Strathberry’s bags have been donned on countless celebrities including by the Duchess of Cambridge on her recent visit to Edinburgh in December.
The Hollywood actress has been in the Capital since before Christmas filming for upcoming Netflix film The Princess Switch 3 due to be released in late 2021.
Hudgens plays the main roles in the Parent Trap-esque doppleganger switch film which has seen filming at locations such as Hopetoun House and Newbattle Abbey College near Dalkeith.
