Vanessa Traina, It Girl, model, and daughter of romance novelist Danielle Steel, launched a collection with French label Maje at Barneys last night. Our sister site took the opportunity to ask Traina about the rumor that she used to carry her books to school in a Birkin. Sadly, Traina says no: "When we were growing up, my mother had some Birkins and Kellys—from her mother even. So we always used to steal—or borrow—her things. So I did wear Birkins sometimes, but it wasn't my day-to-day school bag." [Racked National]
