Elle Fanning was recently spotted at LAX carrying a bright cerulean blue Miu Miu Bugatti Bag. No surprises here: it was recently revealed that Elle will be one of the four young actresses featured in Miu Miu’s spring campaign, so it makes sense that she’s repping the brand in her day-to-day life. You can get a carry-with-everything black version of this tidy little dome satchel for $1,450 at Overstock.com.

Nene Leakes was recently spotted dining at Nello (a restaurant that is somewhat notorious for being ridiculously expensive and over-the-top, even by NYC standards) with husband Gregg and fellow Housewife (of the NY variety) Sonja Morgan. Her bag is a bright blue Hermes Birkin, natch. Nene loves her Birkins, as do all Real Housewives and “Bravolebrities” – you can see for yourself in our special homage to Bravo-endorsed excess, “The Many Bags of Bravolebrities.”
Nene actually announced this week that her next venture will be her own eponymous clothing line.
Khloe Kardashian was recently spotted shuffling off to the gym with an overstuffed black Celine Phantom Luggage Tote. Celine is one of Khloe’s favorite brands, and she owns several impressive Celine bags, including both a buttery yellow Celine Phantom Luggage Tote and a brown suede one, as well as a python front-flap Celine Trapeze Bag. The Luggage Totes come in an ever-expanding variety of color and finish combinations, but the default Luggage Tote for most celebs seems to be a solid black bag like Khloe’s, or a solid navy blue or beige bag.
We’re not exactly surprised to see Givenchy’s celeb sweetheart Rooney Mara carrying Givenchy. Rooney wears tons of the brand’s clothes on the red carpet and is undoubtedly one of the brand’s favorite stars, so it makes sense that we’d catch her dashing out of a dance class in LA with a black Givenchy Nightingale Bag. Slouchy Nirvana tees and Givenchy?
Charlize Theron was recently spotted running a few casual errands in LA while carrying a sumptuous, woven leather Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Nappa Convertible Bag. Bottega Veneta bags really seem to do wonders for classing up any outfit (see: Kim Kardashian), even when you’re just running around town in Nike sneaks. The brand seems to quite effortlessly stride the line between elegant and everyday.
Nicky Hilton and her sister Paris were recently spotted enjoying a little shopping date in NYC. In typical sisterly fashion, they seem to be locked in a silent battle to outdress each other, but Nicky clearly has the advantage with her edgy black Chanel Chain Boy Bag. Because Chanel now lists most of its handbag prices online, we now know that this bag has a suggested retail price of $5,100.
Kim Kardashian was recently mobbed by paps while leaving lunch at The Ivy in LA – as you can see, she’s clutching a relatively teensy 30cm Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin, which is an extremely rare Hermes bag. Kim has a special talent for acquiring the rarest of Birkins, of course, and then cycling a few out of her wardrobe by selling them at auction at a later date).
Newly single dad Orlando Bloom and his son Flynn were recently spotted arriving in Los Angeles together with an eye-popping carry-on (and diaper bag, perhaps): the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama Neverfull Tote. This limited edition bag was part of a larger collaboration between the brand and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, who is famous for her work with polka dots and psychedelic themes.
Here’s Miranda Kerr, donning a fetching, all-black designer ensemble in what is undoubtedly some of the nastiest weather we’ve had in NYC in several years, solely for the purpose of getting her hair done. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. (Meanwhile, the rest of New York is wearing puffy jackets, three layers of pants, beanies and rubber boots.
Sarah Michelle Gellar was spotted leaving the Andy Lecompte Salon in Los Angeles this week after getting her hair colored, carrying a compact, black Gucci Soho Disco Bag, which features a rather giant tassel at the zipper and an embroidered interlocking “G” Gucci logo. (Andy Lecompte is much beloved by non-naturally blonde Hollywood types.) You can buy your own Soho Disco in cream for $895 at Gucci.
