Celebrity-Designer-Handbags-February-5

Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour has quietly-yet-deliberately infiltrated the hearts and minds of celebrities over the past year. It’s not that the bag itself is remarkable; it’s really not, which may be part of the appeal. It’s sort of an anti-“it” bag–classically styled and fairly inconspicuous, with minimal branding.

Apparently, all of the LA celebrities who opted not to make the trek to the Sundance Film Festival or Paris Couture last week decided to go shopping. I suspect there are far fewer crowds (of celebs) to wade through in Beverly Hills when these two events overlap.

If you’re a film buff, you’re probably aware that the Sundance Film Festival is taking place as we speak. If you’re not a film buff, you’re probably vaguely aware of Sundance because it’s the one week of the year when all of your favorite celebs are randomly photographed wearing parkas and standing next to scenic, snowy mountain vistas.

Our celeb roundups are always full of ridiculously good looking people, but this week, we’ve got a full roster of a certain type of particularly enviable female celeb. You know the type: tall, slender, great legs, and even better jawlines. They’re the kind of women who get tapped to be the face of a new perfume, or more likely, the new face of a classic perfume that’s been around for ages.

The celebiverse is much more nuanced than you’d imagine, if you only followed along with People and Us Weekly. There are entire solar systems worth of celebrity stylists and fashion bloggers, many of whom you’re probably unaware of and not following on Instagram.

Fair warning: this edition of our celeb bag round-ups is a solid 50% Chanel, Céline and Hermès. This intel probably elicited one of two responses: squeals of excitement or groans of fatigue. If you’re in the latter camp: I sympathize, but our celeb friends clearly do not.

It’s safe to say a lot of celebs started the week still a tad hungover from Golden Globes after parties, but in the days leading up to the Globes, everyone was clean-cut, (comparatively) sober and busy making the long journey to LA.

It’s extremely possible that Céline’s latest ad campaign (featuring literary icon Joan Didion) has bumped Céline to the forefront of everyone’s bag-addled minds, because we saw an absurd number of celebs carrying Céline last week. It was like 2013 all over again.

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.
