Hermès has a solid handle on celeb hearts this week, as a ton of celebs pulled out their best and most exotic Birkins and Kellys. (Ostrich, anyone?) An adorable baby heiress also makes an appearance (sans baby Hermès handbag), someone got glitter-bombed at LAX and Taylor Swift has a new bag!

Dear Mr. Joel Silver,
I would like to humbly request an invite to your 2016 Memorial Day Pool Party. I know I’m making this request a full year in advance, but I’m allowing you plenty of time to get your ridiculously impressive, A-lister guest list completely nailed down before you start letting in randos like me.
Every few weeks, the celeb bag trend cycle resets itself, and everyone starts falling back on classic handbags from Hermès, Prada and the like. The hot new bags are still represented here (hello, Chloé Faye!), as are some increasingly popular designer clutch picks for the red carpet, but the big name brands definitely have the majority in this week’s first celebrity bag roundup.
Our metaphorical cup runneth over with celebrity handbags. We’re still sorting through pics from the hours preceding the Met Ball, and people’s pre-Ball handbags were sometimes more interesting than what they wore later that evening. And yes, you’re right, the Met Ball was last week, but there was so much to look at that we thought a tour through the pre-party looks we missed might be in order, plus some top-notch celebrity looks from the past few days.
I’m only exaggerating a little. There are technically no children in this celeb roundup (wherefore art thou, Kiernan Shipka?), but Hermès is the undisputed favorite this week. Everyone who wasn’t at the Met Ball was apparently on their way home from Morocco following David Beckham’s lavish, three-day 40th birthday celebration last week.
The powers of the paparazzi are myriad. They have a strange ability to transform a “normal” person into an instant celebrity via their unwanted attention. (It’s happening again this week to the sister of someone you already know and love.) They can always recognize Lady Gaga in all of her various disguises.
