Only Christina Aguilera Could Wear a Purse As a Skirt


Christina Aguilera—otherwise known as Xtina—is no stranger to bold fashion. The singer has worn leather chaps during her “Dirrty” era, extra-tight corsets in the “Lady Marmalade” music video, and Old Hollywood gowns for her Back to Basics tour. She’s done it all! But for her latest style serve, Aguilera is doing something she’s never quite done before: Wearing a purse as a skirt. And she somehow pulls it off, too.

On her Instagram page today, Aguilera posted the look in question: A pink, crystal-covered mini skirt from the Berlin brand Namilia that’s shaped into the style of an Hermès Birkin bag. Sure, it’s not technically a purse—but it does feature the top-handle straps and pockets, no less. The skirt is from the label’s recent spring 2024 collection, which also featured a pink Birkin-style corset. Aguilera forwent it, and instead styled the avant-garde bottom with a simple black tee. Her PVC heels and black shades made the whole look feel sleek and understated (well, as understated as a wearable handbag-skirt can be).

Given the craze for Birkins is not slowing down anytime soon—did you catch MSCHF’s “Birkinstocks,” which are sandals made out of Birkins?—it’s safe to say the skirt design is a clever nod to the current luxury craze for the pricey bags, which can go for upwards of $40,000. And leave it to someone like Xtina to rock them with totally ease on a casual Monday.
