Rebecca Minkoff won over the hearts of women everywhere when she introduced her now-famous, party girl-inspired “Morning After” bag. Fast forward eight years and the young designer is still charming the world with her must-have handbags, only now there’s even more to obsess over, including her coveted ready-to-wear and footwear collections. With a gift for tapping into the desires of her loyal following, she’s achieved that elusive combo of critical and mainstream success. Minkoff has approached new motherhood with the same passion and honesty she applies to her growing empire. Loving husband and easy-going newborn son complete the perfect picture. Enviable life aside, it’s the wicked sense of humor and girls’ girl charm that make Minkoff our perennial crush.
