Hermes on the Cheap at Dead Celebrity Auction

Pardon us for our lack of sugar-coating, but Jennifer Jones is long gone, and you can possibly pick up a piece from her huge collection of Hermes for cheap. Including an ostrich Kelly bag, expected to fetch between $1,000 and $1,500. It's all being done by chi-chi auction house Bonhams, on Sunset. If you're scratching your head and wondering, "Who the hell is Jennifer Jones?", fret not, she's not an actress from our era. She won an Oscar in 1943. Just goes to show you that good taste is timeless. [Bonhams]
