The outspoken American Idol judge (Fox Wednesdays and Thursdays 8 p.m. EST) has undergone a major fashion upgrade. Just five years ago, she was carrying a faux Gucci snagged for $40. Now her preferred bag is this $2,195 Valentino Rockstud tote. And her assistant hauls it around. What's inside?
All About Benjamins
"I don't put cash in my Louis Vuitton wallet. I have it thrown around my bag- jut a whole bunch of hundreds, maybe $5,000."
"I always carry Lady Speed Stick deodorant. And I have about 10 of my MAC Viva Glam lipsticks. I often think I lost them and toss a new one in."
Sore Throat Remedy
"I need to keep my vocal cords right so I always bring Throat Coat tea bags, Lipton decaf tea bags and Ricolas."
"If I'm traveling, I'll pack socks in my bag- really cute furry ones."
Snacks to Go
"I carry those little gold Snickers bars with me. And I list green olives on my rider, so when I'm leaving events, I'll sometimes throw the whole jar in my bag."
