Celebs were extremely busy this week, and if you don’t already feel like you’re wasting the precious remainder of summer in the office, you will after you finish reading this post. Rihanna launched a new fragrance, Kris Jenner just released her new cookbook (yes!) and everyone else was flocking to and from the VMAs or checking out exotic destinations like, uh, Toronto.
While this is certainly a fairly diverse edition of our celeb bag round-ups, bag-wise, the big names continue to steal the show. There’s a stunning croc Fendi bag on display that costs as much as I make in many months, as well as a bevy of Hermès Birkins (per usual) and a few fun selections from more mid-range brands that might not completely devour your entire paycheck.
There are two clear winners of this round-up: Fendi and Louis Vuitton. And, interestingly enough, almost every Louis Vuitton bag represented here is one of the brand’s classic logo designs instead of the newer, more subtle styles. Is it possible that celebs are getting nostalgic for logos as the brand purges some of its popular monogram styles of yesteryear?
This week, celebs have surprised us with a few rather obscure handbag choices from lesser-known brands that are at the peripheries of our radar, as well as bags from the major brands that generally have a lower profile. In a bizarre and disorienting twist, this week’s most boring bag pick actually came from Rihanna , of all people, but only because she’s been carrying her Dior Diorama bags for months now, as if it were her job.
Edie Parker‘s simple, chic plexiglass clutches have really taken off with celebrities this summer. These clutches have become so de riguer in recent months that it’s starting to feel somewhat rare to spot a celeb carrying a clutch from any other brand.
LA readers, please dish! When you dine at Craig’s, are you guaranteed at least three celebrity sightings? Because the flood of paparazzi photos coming from outside of Craig’s would certainly suggest as much. Craig’s is obviously one of the preferred paparazzi hotspots for any celeb looking to generate a little free publicity, and it’s also one of our best resources for fabulous, full frontal celeb handbag pics.
This week we have your usual slew of models, heiresses, actresses and people who model but are arguably more famous for friending other famous people. (Here’s looking at you, Gigi Hadid.) It’s late summer, when celebrities tend to scatter to the far reaches of the Earth in search of a beach where the paparazzi won’t bother them.
A certain iconic handbag has become something of a hot topic this week (more on that later this morning), but earlier this week, we were all were blithely unaware of the coming storm. Celebrities stepped out with both croc bags and Birkins, as well as gorgeous bags from brands like Chloé, Givenchy and up-and-coming bag brand Dannijo.
