STATEMENT bags are defined by their color, shape, design and logo. Whether it's a purse, a clutch or a shoulder bag, these ladies rock high-end labels like Hermes (the famous Birkin bag), Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Chanel and Louis Vuitton that demand attention. And when paired with matching heels, they become runway-worthy, even if the runway is a city street. Follow Reuben Harley on Twitter at @BigRubeHarley and at streetgazing.blogspot.com.

THERE MAY soon be a baby crawling around the Brad Pitt-Jennifer Aniston mansion. Only it won't be Brad & Jen's. Or Brad and Angelina's. Or Jen and Vince Vaughn's. The Star reports Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are eager to snap up the $20 million fixer-upper and Ellen and Portia are talking about having a baby. Goodness knows what it's going to cost to childproof the place. "Having a child was a decision Ellen and Portia agreed to table for a while," a friend told the Star, "so they could get to know each other.

MOVE OVER, Teresa Giudice. The rest of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" might as well use their sky-high stilettos to take a giant step back, too. Philadelphia could be on the verge of getting a "Housewives" show of its own. In recent weeks, a producer associated with the Bravo TV show has been in Philly interviewing some of the city's most successful and glamorous women. But wannabe "Housewives" need to hang on to their Hermes handbags for now. Whatever is in the works is only in its very early stages.

The St. Louis Cardinals have given general manager John Mozeliak a two-year contract extension that runs through 2018. We're not surprised that the 45-year-old executive - who in six seasons has two NL pennants and a World Series win, in 2011 - got a measly two-year extension. After all, this is the "Show-Me" state, or better put, "What-Have-You-Done-For-Me-Lately" state. And 2011 was three years ago. Mozeliak is on board with that philosophy. "I think what we've been able to accomplish here is something we all take a lot of pride in," he said.

Don't be fooled by the arty aspirations of the pictorially captivating Exposure, during which an American photographer in Rio stops hiding behind his lens and comes face to face (not to mention mano a mano) with his subjects. All the breathtaking sequences of twilight leaving its orchid tints on Ipanema and of urchins "train surfing" (riding atop rail cars as though they were skateboards) can't mask that this is an exploitation picture, essentially a cockfight with knives. According to Exposure, in order to actively live life rather than passively record it you must first shake that shiv.

The Devon Club behind the grandstand at the Devon Horse Show grounds was the setting for a cocktail party late Saturday afternoon to recognize boxholders, benefactors and performers involved in the 16th annual Dressage at Devon happening last week. Chrys Fisher, president of Hermes of Paris Inc., welcomed the more than 400 guests, who sipped on Tattinger champagne and nibbled miniature spinach frittatas, artichoke fritters and jumbo shrimp. After the cocktail party, the group watched the Grand Prix Freestyle event, in which the Hermes/Miller's Prix d'Elegance award was presented to the rider accumulating the most points for the year in the North American League.

They wallowed in luxury at Philadelphia University this week: Hermes, Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Rolls-Royce. As academics are want to do, they wrestled with what it is, how it is acquired, what makes it stand apart. Its very definition was knocked about until international fitting guru Edward Gribbin put a humorous end to the debate. "I like to say that the definitions of luxury are like speed limits in Italy," said the St. Joseph's University graduate, who is president of Alvanon, a firm that helps apparel-makers establish sizing standards for their brands.

Color. That's still the word from the Paris fashion world. Fall brings drab hues to the earth, but to models on the runways at the autumn-winter collections it was bright fatigues from Chanel, a purple micro-tunic from Yves St. Laurent, a mauve 1940s suit from Givenchy, an aqua, long military jacket from Herve Leger, and a red python bomber jacket from Christian Lacroix. And trends that emerged at the fall/winter ready-to-wear shows at the Louvre: knitwear is experiencing a renaissance; hemlines are falling to the ankle, and uniform-inspired tailoring is back.
