The $38,000 Tom Ford Handbag that Sparked an International Incident!

Oprah Winfrey says she wanted to take a closer look at a handbag selling for $38,000, but that the salesperson at Zurich’s Trois Pommes refused to take it off the shelf, telling Winfrey, 'No, it's too expensive.'

Well, unless you've been completely cut off from all forms of media in the last few days, you have undoubtedly heard about the incident between Oprah and a Zurich boutique clerk that's got everybody buzzing. Reportedly, while in Switzerland to attend her friend, Tina Turner's wedding, Oprah visited the "Trois Pommes" boutique in Zurich, and requested to take a look at a Tom Ford handbag that sells for a whopping $38,000. Alledgedly, the shop clerk refused to take the handbag off the shelf stating that Oprah wouldn't be able to afford it and suggested she look at similar bags that cost less. The clerk involved in the incident has said that it was all a misunderstanding and that even though to her things didn't exactly go down that way, she would apologize to Oprah if she could talk to her again. Okay, that's the back story. Was this a case of "racial profiling"? Possibly, and that's not cool! But, let's face it! When you heard the story, didn't you want to know what that $38,000 Tom Ford Jennifer handbag (named after Jennifer Aniston) looked like? Well, here's the bag that started the whole thang! Check it out! 

The bag at the center of the Swiss incident is a $38,000 Tom Ford Jennifer handbag — named after Jennifer Aniston.
