If I told you you could now get an authentic python handbag for less than $2,000, would you be pleasantly surprised? Or would you (rightfully) slap me in the face? Well, friends, IT EXISTS, and Kate Hudson is carrying one this week.


Celebrities may get to enjoy a quiet, intimate meal within the walls of Craig’s, but they are well aware that they will be extensively photographed once they step outside its confines, and they usually dress accordingly.


Why are Givenchy bags so ubiquitous in autumn? Why am I falling in love with the Antigona all over again? Why does Rashida Jones only carry Céline bags? Why can’t our photo service deliver more photos of Jennifer Lawrence?


Now that it’s fall, the Oscars, Golden Globes and SAG Awards are all mere months away, which means that A-listers and rising film stars alike are making the press rounds to promote their awards season shoo-ins.


Once the air turns crisp, everyone gets excited to pull out their old fall favorites (or stock up on new fall favorites), and apparently this sort of seasonal nostalgia extends to Céline bags. Just think, in mere months our photo service will be awash in bare-legged, sandal-wearing celebrities in the snow.


Boxy bags are resurgently trendy this week, and celebs seem particularly partial to several beautiful boxy specimens from Mark Cross, Christopher Kane, Les Petits Joueurs, and more. (Strangely, there’s not a single Céline Classic Box Bag in the mix.


Dueling Fashion Weeks should always make for some fantastic celeb handbag voyeurism, and Milan and Paris are definitely delivering. (BTW, have you seen the latest runway offerings from Bottega Veneta, Prada, Fendi and Gucci? Or the great bags that Milan Fashion Week attendees are carrying?)

Meanwhile, back on the mainland, celebs are making some surprisingly novel and surprisingly affordable bag picks.


The first few big bags for fall are starting to emerge, and a few of the big summer bags may have the longevity to make it until next summer. Only time (and the longevity of any given A-list celeb’s endorsement) will tell.


First of all, props to our fabulous readers for promptly helping us identify the mystery bag from our last celebrity bag round-up. We are eternally #blessed to have your collective bag knowledge and wisdom at our disposal.


Black leather is an extremely safe bet if you want to look glam for Fashion Week; that’s why we see a notable uptick in celebs wearing black leather motorcycle jackets and carrying Givenchy bags every September.
