Mary-Kate Olsen recently carried a staggering $80k(ish) worth of assets in plain sight through LAX…in the form of two alligator bags from her own designer label, The Row. Here she is, about to be engulfed by the paps, carrying both the $34,000 The Row Alligator Backpack and The Row Alligator Carry All Tote. We couldn’t find an exact price for the Carry All, but based on the pricing of similar bags by the brand, we would guesstimate that its price sits somewhere in the $35-$40,000 range.

Coach’s new Borough bags are HUGE right now – but they’re also very small. Case in point: here’s January Jones, leaving a CVS in LA in a bit of a huff, carrying a Coach Mini Borough Bag. We saw SJP carrying the full-size Coach Borough Bag a couple weeks ago. Even before its official release, the Borough bag had already found its way into many celeb hands, and we have no doubt that the mini will do the same.
Here’s Sharon Osbourne, arriving in London to play her part on the UK’s The X Factor (aka, the original X Factor). As you can see, Sharon is carrying a truly massive Chanel bag that we’re dubbing the Chanel Oversized Flap Bag. It is, without a doubt, one of the biggest Chanel bags we’ve ever beheld. It’s gargantuan, so it obviously makes a perfect airplane carry-on, especially if you’d like to smuggle something large and exotic across international borders, like a live animal.
Here’s a super casual Kirsten Dunst leaving the gym in LA with a Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag. Celebs carry all manner of fancy designer bags to the gym, but this one gets us particularly excited because Mansur Gavriel is a fabulous New York-based brand that’s only in its second season of production. The company is basically brand new, and its bags are great – simple, minimalist and made of Italian leather.
Sure, sure, Miranda Kerr always looks fabulous when she steps outside the house, right? Why do we bother? I’ll tell you why we bother – because she always looks fabulous in an entirely exciting way, and she’s always clad in designer wares from head to toe. Here she is out doing supermodel things in NYC, carrying a pale pink Prada Pyramid Frame Satchel.
The last time we saw Elizabeth Hurley leaving her London home, she was carrying one of the rarest Birkins in the world. Now here she is hitting the town with a much more budget friendly, bright peacock blue MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote, which retails for a (comparatively) paltry $278. You can currently get this medium-sized tote in black saffiano leather at Nordstrom.
Jessica Alba was recently spotted at Hollywood’s favorite (and most star-studded) pumpkin patch, Mr. Bones, picking out some premium Halloween decor with her kiddos. Her bag is a Chanel 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag, and perhaps in a nod to the low-key nature of the event, it’s in jersey fabric instead of leather. It seems bizarre that a jersey Chanel bag even exists, but it works quite well with Jessica’s ensemble here.
Nicky Hilton continues to make us jealous with her designer bag selections: here she is at a screening of The Counselor in NYC, carrying an Edie Parker Flavia Confetti Clutch emblazoned with her name. A lot of people in the fashion world have their own bespoke Flavia clutch – we’ve seen both the Man Repeller and Anna Dello Russo toting them around.
Here’s Princess Eugenie (daughter of the UK’s Prince Andrew), shopping in the East Village with a Mulberry Alexa Satchel. She has apparently expatriated to NYC to work for an auction company, but she’s still repping for British designers with a Mulberry bag. You, too, can live like a princess – this bag can be acquired for the low, low princess price of $1,500 at Net-A-Porter.
Olivia Palermo was recently spotted strolling in the West Village of NYC with her mustachioed Swedish man candy Johannes Huebl and a chic, neutral, textured-leather Anya Hindmarch Ebury Soft Tote (sans strap) in grey. You can pick up an attractive tan leather version of the Ebury for $1,417 at FarFetch. Olivia always has an interesting bag on her arm – you can assess the rest of her collection in “The Many Bags of Olivia Palermo”.
