Part of the charm behind @Y2KBags is that Alejandro has curated a collection of photos that capture the crazed tabloid culture of the time. He includes snaps of celebrities carrying these It bags that recall the undressed, makeup-free style of the“Stars — They’re Just Like Us!” pages as well as highly staged paparazzi moments from the era. In one picture, we see a cargo shorts-and-sandal-wearing Marc Jacobs sitting on a sidewalk, smoking a cigarette, sitting next to a hulking army green Birkin. A few slides later, there is Spencer Pratt feeding strawberries to Heidi Montag, who is carrying a metallic Fendi Spy bag.
