We leaped to conclusions when we first saw Christina Hendricks carrying this $23,980 tote bag. We assumed she was on her way to an underground luxury bowling league that meets in a secret, Corinthian-marble alley hidden under the Orangerie at Versailles.

But then we looked up bowling ball bags on the Internet and realized that they don't look like this anymore—somewhere between the ‘60s and yesterday, bowling totes evolved to look like roller bags, and we missed it. Our bad.

The sad point is: Hendricks does not belong to a bowling league, where Karl Lagerfeld implodes into a black hole of crushed velvet hate every time Diddy throws a strike.

Nope, Hendricks just owns a Farbod Barsum tote that looks like a bowling bag, made from American alligator. And she likes to carry this $23,980 tote while wearing a frayed denim shirt and jeans because, Mad Men actors—they're just like us.
