and Rose Byrne both donned Chanel for the label's pre-Oscars cocktail bash. "It's such an iconic brand," Byrne told us. "I really only have one lovely bag. I actually had a bag stolen out of my luggage about a year ago. It was dreadful. I never got it back. But I got another one! There's something quite classic about a Chanel bag. It can make an outfit something more than it is-just by that one, little slinging tote that you have."
