There were a barrage of Cruise and Resort runway shows over the holiday weekend, and many of our celeb handbag round-up usuals made their way to Rio for Louis Vuitton‘s. Not everyone headed to the runway shows, of course; some celebs stayed in town, shopped at their favorite stores and loafed around their usual haunts, just like I did.
Celebs can cycle through designer handbags at a break-neck speed, so when certain celebs keep carrying the same bags for weeks or even months, we notice. Case in point: Chrissy Teigen is currently only carrying The Row Classic 5 Tote, though she mixes it up by carrying the same style in a variety of sizes and colorways.
Cannes is still happening (more on that soon), but most of the celebs whose handbag choices we’re looking at today have choses to keep their very famous feet solidly on US shores. Of course, some of them have young babies at home, or very important lunch dates to keep, or they just now live in fear of fielding questions about whether or not they are indeed Becky With The Good Hair.
As you’re probably aware, the Cannes Film Festival is happening right now, and celebs are headed to France with all their best handbags, except for the ones that aren’t. But if you’re an actress with substantial movie industry cred (or a supermodel with absolutely zero) traipsing through LAX this week, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll make an appearance on the red carpet at Cannes.
Jessica Alba is much more public about spending time with her family than other celebs, and she seems oddly undeterred by paparazzi attention. She brunches, she does playdates, she promotes The Honest Company, she makes office and juice runs and she seems generally content to live out her life in the public eye.
Honestly, Sarah Jessica Parker‘s enthusiasm for her own line of shoes makes me like her shoes a lot more. Celebs are frequently quick to lend their name to some fashion line for the right amount of cachiche, and while the brands who foot the bill are glad to have you think those celebs were deeply involved in every aspect of the design process, there’s seldom evidence that they were on-hand to give feedback for more than 45 minutes total.
