Celebrity-Designer-Handbags-January-8

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.

Celebrity-Christmas-Bags-2014

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.

Best-Celebrity-Handbags-2014

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.

Celebrity-Handbag-Picks-December-22

This holiday(ish) edition of our (usually) bi-weekly celeb bag round-up is chock full of high-profile ladies who all have one thing in common: if they were at a party, you’d totally want to be at that party. If they were all at the same party, people would probably never shut up about that party.

Real-Housewives-Handbag-Picks

If you’ve been reading these posts for a while, you probably know that my tone can veer toward snarky from time to time. Ladies and gents, nothing tests my powers of snark-restraint like writing about the Real Housewives of Basically Anywhere.

Celebrity Designer Handbags December 16

Last week, celebs attended fashion shows in NYC, shopped in Santa Monica, and schlepped through LAX with their pets, all while carrying some pretty fantastic bag choices. Today, we have an unusual mix of both celebs you’re pretty used to seeing around these parts (Olivia Palermo, Taylor friggin’ Swift) and celebs you almost never see featured here (Kirstie Alley, Jordin Sparks), as well as celebs that don’t get as much handbag glory.

Pregnant Celebrity Handbags

This will not shock you: pregnant stars do not mess around with micro bags. We didn’t set out to do a maternity edition of our usual celeb bag round-up, it just sort of happened accidentally; you could call it…unplanned.

Best Celebrity Handbags December 9

Last week’s holiday travel rush had celebs busting out their biggest and best travel bags, totes and duffels. But this week, it’s business as usual. Some celebs are favoring the minis, some are still ferrying around their gigantic Louis Vuitton and Givenchy bags, and Meryl (FRIGGIN’) Streep was actually spotted carrying the same bag we saw on Kesha’s arm last week.

Celebrity Thanksgiving Bags

Celebs spent their Thanksgiving breaks the same way we all did: navigating crowded airports and juggling unwieldy luggage, all to break bread with the family members they love but see all too rarely. All but two of the celebs pictured below are outside or inside of airports, and because celebs fully expect to be photographed at airports, their bag choices are always truly top-notch.

Celebrity Handbags December 2

Top-handles and totes reigned supreme in the celebosphere last week. Stars of all stripes also relied on their trusty, oversized designer duffels and hobos to transport their luxe goods to exotic destinations unknown. And yes, Harry Styles is in here, somewhere.
