Lauren Conrad Balenciaga Papier A4 Tote

Here’s Lauren Conrad, shopping in West Hollywood, carrying a calfskin Balenciaga Papier A4 Tote in a shade of blush-beige that’s pretty perfect for her traditionally feminine style. (Also, it’s further proof that the pale bag trend continues to dominate this spring.) She’s quite skillfully accessorized her bag with color-matching sunnies and ballet flats.

Kendall Jenner Balenciaga Giant Covered City Bag

Kendall Jenner was recently seen leaving a salon in LA (wearing a baseball cap after a hair appointment?) carrying a Balenciaga Giant Covered City Bag. This bag is at least a couple years old and is no longer manufactured by the brand – it seems highly likely that Kendall borrowed it from a big sis.

Salma Hayek Balenciaga Tube Bag

Salma Hayek was recently spotted arriving at LAX with a black Balenciaga Tube Bag. As you may know, Salma’s husband François-Henri Pinault is the CEO of Kering, which is a luxury conglomerate that is also the parent company of Balenciaga and a myriad of other designer labels including Saint Laurent, Gucci and Alexander McQueen.

Anne Hathaway Balenciaga Papier A4 Mini Tote

Here’s a gal we don’t see on this blog nearly often enough: Anne Hathaway! Here’s Anne leaving the restaurant Cheebo in LA with a friend. Her petite yellow bag is Balenciaga Papier A4 Mini Tote. (Could you recognize the brand’s trademark “bag face” in this teensy size?) You can get Anne’s exact bag in “Citron Yellow” for $1,195 at Balenciaga.

Balenciaga Fall 2014 Handbags 2

During a runway show, you don’t expect to see models carrying shopping bags. Despite the fact that women who can afford the clothes that debut at shows like that of Balenciaga Fall 2014 often find themselves carrying shopping bags, most runways try to divorce themselves as much as possible from the drudgery of actually selling clothes, all the way from the performance-art settings to the impracticality of the garments therein.

Gisele Bundchen Balenciaga Tube Shoulder Bag

Gisele Bundchen was recently spotted arriving at LAX (we’re betting she was on her way to NYFW) clad in a plaid shirt, knee high suede boots and black jeans like only a true supermodel can be. Her luxe black leather bag is the Balenciaga Tube Shoulder Bag.

Kylie Jenner carries a blue Balenciaga bag at LAX (5)

Kylie Jenner was recently spotted making a mad dash out of LAX with a charming Balenciaga Classic Mini Bowling Bag. This bag is a petite, domed version of the Balenciaga Motorcycle Bags that we all know and love. It can currently be obtained in Kylie’s preferred hue for $1,345 at Barneys.

Balenciaga Le Dix Feature

The Balenciaga Le Dix Bag brought out some strong opinions from our commenters when it was first revealed, and now that the bag is available for immediate purchase, we thought it would be worth the time to revisit the design now that we have bigger, more detailed photos to examine.

Kim Kardashian carries a beige Balenciaga City Bag (5)

Kim Kardashian is back in the public eye, as of this week. She crawled out of her top secret baby-rearing compound for Paris Fashion Week, and now she’s back in Los Angeles. Here she is arriving at LAX after her Paris trip, carrying a beige Balenciaga City Bag.

Balenciaga Spring 2014 Handbags (3)

I think most of us, me included, thought that there was a decent chance Alexander Wang might fall flat on his face at the helm of Balenciaga. Maybe not probable, but not exactly impossible, either. Thankfully, Wang’s results in two seasons as Balenciaga’s creative director have yielded the exact opposite – two focused, luxurious, modern collections that are built solidly atop Balenciaga’s historic foundation.
