Seventy-five top labels, including Prabal Gurung, Rebecca Minkoff, and Kate Spade, personalized the zip-top bags to raise awareness against counterfeit goods. The designer items will be available for $200 at fashionvault.ebay.com starting tomorrow at 11 a.m. EST, as well as four standard ivory totes for $45 each. Proceeds will be donated to the CFDA Foundation to fight counterfeiting.

When Dancing with the Stars premieres tonight, make sure to take a close look at Karina Smirnoff and Gavin DeGraw’s outfits—Karina designed them! “This is one of my favorite aspects of the show, and I can’t wait to start designing our costumes,” the pro dancer told InStyle.com. “I already have a couple of designs ready.” And Smirnoff is hoping the sparkly, fringy, color-coordinated looks will help give her an edge to help her win the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy for the second time in a row. Last year, she won season 13 with partner J.R. Martinez. Tune in to see all the costumes and the dancing live tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
Plus, see last year’s competitors in the gallery.
