Celebrities kept it exceptionally classy with their bag choices last week. We saw stars on both coasts carrying only the most seasonally appropriate designer totes, satchels, flap bags and crossbodys from brands ranging from Hermès to Kate Spade, and we’ve got documentation of our favorites below.

While the brand’s popularity has undoubtedly ebbed since an event that I will refer to as Peak Phantom Luggage Tote, models still have lots of love for their treasured Céline bags. Models across the US were seen carrying Céline bags in droves this week; when they weren’t carrying Saint Laurent, of course.
You love celebs. You really love round-ups. So now, in lieu of our usual daily celeb features, we’ll be presenting our readers with a twice-weekly bag-carrying celeb smorgasbord. There’s something for everyone, so if you suffer from Kardashian fatigue, or Real Housewife fatigue, or Birkin fatigue (highly scientific studies show that they are all irrevocably linked), there are plenty of other attractive celebs carrying gorgeous designer bags upon which to rest your gaze.
Since we started doing daily celebrity coverage a couple of years ago, you guys have picked up on the same phenomenon I have: a star’s cultural clout is almost always inversely proportional to the quality of her handbag collection. There are exceptions here and there–most notably, Reese Witherspoon–but the reason that reality stars and tabloid fixtures love carrying designer bags is the same reason that many of us do, or at least why we did when we started.
If you woke up today wondering if Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss are still lady besties, the answer is an enthusiastic “YES.” Here are Taylor and Karlie, leaving the Sephora in the Meatpacking District of NYC together. The girls had a cute little lunch date on Wednesday, which included a Sephora pop-in and a leisurely lunch at ABC Kitchen.
Actress Emmy Rossum made an appearance at a No Kill LA Animal Adoption event over the weekend, where she picked up a new pup and provided the animal rescue organization with a little bit of always-needed publicity via Twitter and Instagram (as well as slightly more traditional media outlets).
Oh yes, you read that correctly. Kim Kardashian recently became the proud recipient of an Hermès Herbag that was lovingly (and intentionally) hand-painted by her daughter North. This “customized” Herbag is, of course, a gift from Kanye. Here’s the happy couple walking into a meeting together in LA, with Kim’s new bag/North’s handiwork on full display.
Here’s Karlie Kloss, world’s most relatable, affable, low-key supermodel, ambling around NYC with a massive Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag. This bag, as you might imagine, is the largest version of the popular Chanel style, and we rarely see it “in the wild,” though it does make a few appearances in “100 Celebs and Their Favorite Chanel Bags”.
