It turns out that Vanessa works for DVF. She told me that the bag has been extremely popular this season. It is knit out of leather and has an amazing silver metallic color on black. Last night I happened to be updating my feeds on Bloglines, and there was the bag on Luxist. They had just named it Handbag of the Day!
As you can see, the bag looks even better in real life(and especially chic on lovely Vanessa).
