Emmy Rossum Wears Car-Shaped Purse, Proves Quirky Accessories Are For Cool Kids

I have always been a fan of Emmy Rossum, partly because of her impeccably chic fashion sense, and partly because of her cool down-to-earth attitude. Rossum wore a quirky car-shaped purse while running errands in West Hollywood, proving that you don't always have to take yourself so seriously when it comes to fashion. This gal definitely marches to the beat of her own drum, and her unconventional style totally makes her one of Hollywood's coolest fashion icons.

This was no ordinary car she was toting on her arm, oh no — this was a high-class old-school buggy on wheels, sort of like something Uber would chauffeur you around in if it existed decades ago. The adorable black and white purse features two short handles with a single zipper atop, and what appears to be clear nylon cutouts as the windows of the car.

The sweetest part? This piece actually seems to be vintage — well, sort of. The actress posted a photo of herself with the bag on Instagram giving us the full story behind it. In the caption she explains, "I got this Betty Dumoulin car bag when I was 11 on a movie job in Paris. It's been sitting in my closet since but I decided to take it for a test drive today. (See what I did there? #dumbpuns #dadjokes)." Eccentric purses and cheesy puns? We are totally long lost BFFs.

Take a look at the cool bag.
