Hungarian couture handbag designer Judith Leiber is best known for her signature crystal covered minaudieres, small ornamental cases, often in the shapes of animals or fruits. Her purses are so great that some pieces are even included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian!
Needless to say, Judith Leiber's crystal covered evening bags are considered to be the best couture bags ever, and below you will see why:
