Ashley Olsen proved she's the kind of gal pal we'd all enjoy having around, when she gave Jessica Biel one of the luxury backpacks from her The Row label.
Clearly thrilled with the gift, Biel shared the photo at right of herself wearing it with her Twitter followers recently, along with the message "In love with my new #therow backpack. Thanks, Ashley!"
Now admittedly Ashley is only generous to a point. Some handbag lovers thought the image showed the crocodile skin backpack, which retails for $39, 000. However both Barneys New York and a spokesperson for The Row say Biel's backpack is the regular leather version rather than the exotic one. It’s still an expensive backpack at $3,900, but that amount seems like small change compared to The Row's opulent high-end knapsack!
Whatever the cost, I don't think we could ever accuse anyone who gives away a designer accessory of being cheap, even if they do happen to run the company behind it. I'm impressed with Ashley Olsen's generosity, aren't you?
Perhaps this show of friendship will put an end to that persistent rumor that Olsen hooked up with Biel's fiancé Justin Timberlake while the couple were on a break last year. Or perhaps the budding designer was making an apology for past behavior! Either way it seems that now the celebs are fast friends!
