This past week, Catherine Zeta-Jones received a top honor. No, it was not bestowed to her at the Academy Awards. Instead, she was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire.  Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace presented it to the Welsh actress. The royal "pomp and circumstance" event had her husband Michael Douglas, and their children standing by her side. She was commemorated for her services to the film industry and her compassion and time to humanitarian events.  "As a British subject I feel incredibly proud. At the same time it is overwhelming and humbling," was her response.

Catherine Zeta-Jones has been in the limelight for a long time now. She made her professional acting debut as the lead in the musical, Annie. By the time she reached 15, she had the lead in the British revival of "42nd Street" as the second understudy. Normally, a second understudy never gets a break to perform, but luck was on Catherine´s side when the star and first understudy became sick.

That particular night, the play's producer was in the audience, and caught Catherine´s stunning performance. He decided to give her the lead for the rest of the musical's production run. Her big break of gaining exposure by this struck of luck resulted with the attention of Hollywood. Her first major role in films came about with the "Mask of Zorro" and the rest is history.

The stunning star always dresses impeccable and is a big fan of designer handbags. Always elegant, stylish and sexy, the designer bag that matches that description is an authentic Chanel Caviar Shopping Tote.
