Schapelle Corby shows off her $3,000 Louis Vuitton handbag

She’s been keeping a low-profile since returning to Australia two years ago, after spending almost a decade behind bars in Bali’s notorious Kerobokan Prison. 

But on Thursday, convicted drug trafficker Schapelle Corby was the centre of attention as she arrived the launch of her re-released autobiography, My Story, in Sydney. 

The 42-year-old was all smiles as she proudly showed off her new book in one hand and a Louis Vuitton bag, which retails for around $3,000, in the other.

Schapelle made sure her book was on full display as she arrived at the event alongside her older sister, Mercedes Corby.  

She looked very stylish indeed, wearing a patterned blouse, black pants and a pair of matching heels, and accessorised with black-rimmed glasses.

Schapelle’s makeup consisted of dewy foundation, rosy cheeks and a glossy lip, and she styled her brunette hair loosely.

Schapelle’s sister, Mercedes, wore beige pants, a black sleeveless top and flat shoes.

The former Ralph magazine cover girl also carried a Louis Vuitton bag, in addition to another handbag and a jacket. 

Schapelle’s bestselling 2006 autobiography, My Story, was re-released on Tuesday in updated form with several extra chapters.

The book’s co-writer, journalist Kathryn Bonella, recently shared a lengthy Instagram post explaining how she and Schapelle went about updating the book.

‘In this revised and updated book Schapelle goes back to dark times, when she was suicidal and spent nights huddled in the ceiling cavity of her cell,’ Kathryn wrote. 

‘Plus she talks about her release in 2014, and life at home in Australia since 2017: love, kids, family and daily flashbacks of her hellish 10 years in [prison].’

Earlier this week, Schapelle was confronted by Studio 10 host Kerri-Anne Kennerley about the profits from her autobiography.

Referencing Australian laws that prohibit criminals from profiting from books and films about their crimes, Kerri-Anne asked who exactly was making money from the revised edition of My Story.

Schapelle avoided the question, replying ‘Well, it is not about money. It is about me finishing my story. It is about going back and being cathartic to myself and my supporters, to let them know what really happened. But to get back to you, it’s not about money.’

Kerri-Anne, 66, pushed for a definitive answer, asking Schapelle once again: ‘It is not about money, but where will the profits go?’

‘I am not sure… It’s true, I am not sure,’ she responded. ‘Why would you bring yourself to do something like this for… I don’t know. All I know is I needed to finish this book.’

Schapelle was arrested at Bali airport in October 2004, after more than four kilograms of marijuana was discovered in her boogie board bag.

Despite maintaining the drugs were planted without her knowledge, she spent nine years behind bars in Kerobokan Prison before being released on parole in 2014. She was deported back to Queensland three years later.
