If you’re a film buff, you’re probably aware that the Sundance Film Festival is taking place as we speak. If you’re not a film buff, you’re probably vaguely aware of Sundance because it’s the one week of the year when all of your favorite celebs are randomly photographed wearing parkas and standing next to scenic, snowy mountain vistas.
Our celeb roundups are always full of ridiculously good looking people, but this week, we’ve got a full roster of a certain type of particularly enviable female celeb. You know the type: tall, slender, great legs, and even better jawlines. They’re the kind of women who get tapped to be the face of a new perfume, or more likely, the new face of a classic perfume that’s been around for ages.
It’s safe to say a lot of celebs started the week still a tad hungover from Golden Globes after parties, but in the days leading up to the Globes, everyone was clean-cut, (comparatively) sober and busy making the long journey to LA.
It’s extremely possible that Céline’s latest ad campaign (featuring literary icon Joan Didion) has bumped Céline to the forefront of everyone’s bag-addled minds, because we saw an absurd number of celebs carrying Céline last week. It was like 2013 all over again.
Some weeks, the universe sends us nothing but Real Housewives carrying the same (beautiful, but the same) Chanel Flap Bags or Hermès Birkins we see all the time. We don’t mind those weeks (and we never tire of seeing those bags), but occasionally, the stars are aligned just so and some of our favorite actresses and singers will come out of hiding, carrying some handbags we don’t see every day.
We’ll begin the new year with some solid celeb bag picks from the final days of 2014. The days following Christmas are always a blur of shopping, leftovers, air travel and, usually, more shopping. LA-based celebs did their usual laps around LAX and Fred Segal, which is pretty much always a paparazzi sure-thing, NYC-based celebs did much of the same, and still other celebs popped up in idyllic holiday hang-outs like Aspen, as they so often do this time of year.
First things first: this list isn’t quite as comprehensive as most year-end lists you’ll read this week, because it primarily deals with handbags we saw celebs carry after June. To get a better feel for ALL the year’s best bag moments, you’ll also want to consult “The Best Celebrity Bag Looks of Summer 2014″ as well.
