The tab-blogs were abuzz this afternoon with rumors of a coupling between actor (and perennial LA-fixture) Shia LaBoeuf and British actress Carey Mulligan because of their kissy-faces at Village resto, Extra Virgin. More importantly, we noticed Mulligan toting a Stella Filante bag, so we totally love her.
It's refreshing to catch celebs in their authentic New York states-of-mind, especially when it's a state of mind that promotes young, Lower East Side boutiques like Stella Filante, which in turn sells a sophisticatedly small selection of design up-and-comers.
And it would also be cool if Mulligan and LaBeouf were indeed a couple, so we might more frequently spot the hottie on this side of the country.
