Kate Hudson

This month's Elle UK Magazine cover got me completely enthralled with Kate Hudson all over again. I loved her in Almost Famous as Penny Lane, which was her breakout roll.

Kate Hudson was born on April 19, 1979 and today is not only an American Golden Globe winner but also a Oscar nominated actress. She's best known for her rolls in Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, The Skeleton Key, You, Me and Dupree, Fool's Gold and most recently, Bride Wars.

Although Hudson is known for her amazing figure and personal style, her most commendable attribute is her focus to be a positive influence on the way young females view their bodies. In 2006 Kate sued the British Enquirer after they stated that she had an eating disorder. Hudson said the actions were "completely inappropriate", a “blatant lie” and was truly concerned with the affects the article could have on young girls.

Kate is a fun and loving actress with lots positive energy and tons of confidence. As a Hollywood actress she needs a laptop bag that's as bright as her personality, sophisticated as her style and one that can handle the ups and downs of show business. For Kate, I choose the Abbi NY Carrie Tote in Gold...This laptop bag is a head turner with a unique two toned leather trim and lots of functionality!

Holly Buchanan

Holly Buchanan is the co-author of The Soccer Mom Myth - Today's Female Consumer, Who She Really Is, Why She Really Buys.

Holly's specialty is marketing to women online.
She began her career in the radio industry as a copywriter and creative director. It was the perfect training ground for the work she does today. “I worked with over a thousand clients. (that's right - averaged over one hundred every year) We had 5 radio stations with formats ranging from adult contemporary, to country, to alternative rock. A typical day included meetings with clients as varied as high end jewelers and strip clubs. But I got a hands on view of what copy spoke to those different audiences, what worked and what didn't.”

Holly is constantly on the go, traveling around the country and speaking at events. She has given me invaluable guidance for CareerBags.com so the best way that I could thank her for her expertise was with mine. When she described her bag to me I realized that she could use a little help. So I went through my list of questions and chose the perfect bag for her. A Rolling Laptop Bag from Clark and Mayfield. Elegant, polished and practical. It holds her laptop and all of the essential items she needs to hop off a plane and show up looking fabulous as she shares her valuable insights into how to market to women.

Arianna Huffington

Arianna_huffington_5 As you can see in the sidebar, I'm reading Arianna Huffington's On Becoming Fearless at the moment.

And I regularly read her online magazine, the Huffington Post, where I can get both my incisive political commentary as well as up-to-date news on the latest Mini-Me sex tape scandal.

So naturally, when I was considering the next candidate for laptop bag matchmaking, Ms. Huffington was first on my list!

Coakley_tweed_laptop_case I'm a big fan of Arianna Huffington's confident, forthright style. Who wouldn't be inspired by her success as an entrepreneur, media mogul and activist?

I think the Coakley Timeless Tweed Laptop Bag in Sand is the perfect match for Arianna's classic, polished look and on-the-go lifestyle. It's an elegant and very practical laptop tote, with a timeless, simple exterior and an interior packed with pockets and zippered pouches.

Sadly, Arianna rarely calls me for style advice - she's so busy these days, and then I suppose there's also the fact that we don't know each other. But if I see her toting the Coakley Timeless Tweed Laptop Bag around, I'll know my StyleFile message got through!

Suze Orman - StyleFile

Suze orman With the markets in flux lately, I've been seeing a lot more of my favorite celebrity financial advisor, Suze Orman, on TV.

I've read three of Ms. Orman's eight books (Women & Money is her latest - it's excellent!) and I really admire the work she does to inspire and empower all of us to handle our own money and improve our finances.

As Suze often says, it's tempting, especially in uncertain times like these, to hide your head in the sand over your financial situation. But this kind of dysfunctional relationship with money just makes it harder to get back on track.

In each of her books (and lectures and workshops and TV appearances) Suze always offers an actionable plan for change - and I love a lady who's action-oriented!

Suze Orman always looks put together - her personal style tends towards simple and classic. And I wanted to pick a laptop bag for her that would be a good investment! So the laptop bag I would recommend for Suze Orman is the Coakley Signature Suede Everyday Portfolio.

Coakley_Suede_Laptop_Portfolio The Coakley Signature Suede Everyday Portfolio offers a classic, professional silhouette that embodies executive elegance. Each super soft sueded Coakley Signature Suede is engineered to be durable, stain resistant, light weight, easy to clean and, of course, timelessly stylish.

The Coakley is great for traveling from TV studio to lecture hall to the trading floor. Plus, its form fitting stretch neoprene back sleeve secures the bag to carry-on luggage handle for longer trips - you know, your book tours and such.

The Coakley's roomy compartments offer stretch neoprene pockets for eyeglasses (cases fit too), digital camera, PDA, makeup kit, financial presentation cue cards etc. There's also plenty of room for files, books, and bundles of fan mail.

The Coakley's laptop pocket sleeve is big enough to fit a 17" laptop. And the bag's luxurious inner lining is light-coloured, so that it's easy to locate what you need quickly. As a security feature, the Coakley's exterior front pocket houses a dual entry zippered security pocket for wallet and valuables - because Suze is all about hanging on to your money!

So Suze - I hope you find my laptop bag advice as helpful as I find your financial advice. And for all you fabulous women growing your own wealth out there, consider investing in the Coakley Signature Suede Everyday Portfolio at CareerBags.com!

Tina Fey - StyleFile

Tina_fey_glassesI've loved Tina Fey since her Weekend Update days on SNL and I can't wait for the new season of 30 Rock to kick off (October 30 seems so far away...). Award-winning writer, producer, performer, mom - Tina Fey does it all and makes it look easy.

Well, not always easy. Sometimes, painfully awkward. Yet hilarious. But that's all part of her brilliance

Not only is she smart, funny and feminist (three traits I deeply admire), Tina Fey is also, as my mother would say, a snappy dresser. With her dark brown hair and trademark dark-rimmed glasses, she owns her look and has created a style that is unmistakably her.

Which laptop tote could possibly compliment Tina Fey's look?
Behold the Quimby Quilted Laptop Brief by Clark and Mayfield!

Clark_Mayfield_Quimby_Laptop_Tote_Tan As you can see, the Quimby is fun, flirty and fashion forward outside but inside, this bag is all business. The well-padded, removable laptop sleeve in the front compartment protects your computer and leaves plenty of room for your peripherals and daily essentials.

The back compartment of the bag is a large fan-fold section to keep files, scripts (and notebooks full of brilliant ideas) secure and organized.

The Quimby also comes with an adjustable strap with a deep sponge-rubber cushion, making it super-comfortable to carry from home to office meetings to the set.

I think the quirky yet stylish Quimby would suit both Tina Fey and her 30 Rock alter-ego, Liz Lemon. Maybe I should send her a note at Ask Tina and see what she thinks? In the meantime, check out the Quimby Quilted Laptop Brief at CareerBags.com!
