    Default The Proposal

    One of the major reasons I wanted to watch the movie The Proposal (besides Ryan Reynolds of course) was because of all the bags that were used in the movie. For all the scenes relating to the work, plus the now-famous kneeling in the street scene, there's a lovely leather tote from Prada. And who could miss that pair of lovely red soled heels from Christian Louboutin?

    And when she visited Andrew's family in Sitka, Alaska she brought her lovely Hermès Birkin along. Gorgeous I thought. Till we got to the scene where she's struggling on the dock with her Keepall and luggage from Louis Vuitton. Then it fell into the water. Then I noticed it had studs (feet) on the bottom. 6 to be exact.

    Then it hit me. The Keepall was fake, which begs the question. Authorities can get tough on those who sell counterfeits and arrest those who sell or use fake designer goods, but it is ok for film studios to use them in movies? I don't get it. And please don't tell me it was because they were on a tight budget.

    Omg!
    Even if they were tight on budget they shouldn't have been using fake bags! Just get something cheap!
    That makes me really mad, sorry. But I have very strong opinions against fakes...

    OMG!! I have to watch that movie. I have never heard of such a thing!! I have a friend that has worked on lots of movie sets and "supposedly" they only use authentic bags. I would DIE if my Louie fell in the water. They stay in the sleepers most of the spring and summer months since I can not stand any water spots. I would also have to say that I am sure that Louis Vuitton would be upset. I know they sued Britney Spears for a video where the interior of the car was the Louis Vuitton Cherry Blossom pattern. They should know better. Counterfeits are ILLEGAL!!!

    Yeah, there is absolutely no reason for Hollywood to use knockoff handbags. I haven't seen the movie, but I know it's not the first to use fakes in their films.

    ITA with VLJ, there's absolutely NO reason whatsoever for Hollywood to do that. Nevertheless, I'm shocked!!

    I don't understand how they get away with that stuff. I can't believe LV hasn't spoken up about it, I mean wouldn't you think that THEY would have noticed it as well?!

    Well that wouldn't be the first time. The movie "White Chicks" has fake bags and so does "Beauty Shop" . I don't get it if they can't afford the real thing just use less expensive handbags.

    Yes BAGGERS, unfortunately SATC did have many fakes in the their wardrobe dept. Very disappointing .

    Maybe because they wouldn't really want to ruin a real one. I know I wouldn't throw mine in the water

    ^^ that could be one reason.
    Maybe they think its just a prop like everything else? or they think its okay because in hollywood everything is fake..

    LVMode, when you consider the hugh budgets they have for these pictures, why in the world would they not use authentic bags?

    the budgets are high but not limitless; you're not going to throw a $4k bag in the water and ruin it for one scene, that's just ridiculous.

    A lot of things in movies that appear to be real are not, it's not as though the use of props is revolutionary.
