Bergdorf Goodman celebrated its 111th anniversary on Thursday evening with a party at the iconic Plaza Hotel. Fashion's finest were in full attendance— designers like Zac Posen, Jason Wu, and Derek Lam came out to fete the luxe retailer, as did supermodels Coco Rocha and Karolína Kurková. We found out their biggest fashion splurges, and Coco even gave us a little insight on how to strut with confidence. That, plus more from Bergdorf Goodman's enviably chic birthday party, in today's Fab Flash. On Allison McNamara: Kendra Scott earrings, BCBGeneration top.

Between its functionality and the sleek structural shape, it wasn't even a question of whether or not we liked Derek Lam's Fall '12 bag fare. Rather, a better question would be: when can we get our hands on the Newton camera bag ($1,390)? The answer? Now. The price tag may be a little steep, but here are three reasons why this style should be your next accessory splurge. One: The stark, boxy silhouette is classic, through and through. As in, you can count on this bag being a go-to favorite for seasons to come. Two: You can schlep your camera around, no problem. But the less-obvious zinger is that it's roomy enough to hold the bonus essentials (read: a compact mirror, lipstick, and a minibrush). Three: It's the perfect size for any occasion, and to add to its versatility, most camera bags double as crossbody bags, too. Whether you're taking in the sights somewhere, running errands, or are off to a swanky dinner, this is it. We get that the Derek Lam iteration might be a bit of a budget stretch so, if you love the idea of a camera bag, you're still in the right place. See our picks below to get in our latest Fall bag crush.
