Many-Bags-of-Celebrity-Moms-Part-2

As you likely know by now, this Sunday is Mother’s Day, and we’re celebrating moms all week. We’ve already covered real life gift-giving and iconic TV moms, and today, we’re here to take a look at how real life moms wear their designer bags.

You’ve likely seen plenty of coverage of the dresses stars wore on the red carpet at last night’s Chine-themed Met Ball, but now, we’re here to do what we do best: look at bags. Sometimes formal events don’t yield a great selection of accessories, but last night’s clutch choices could scarcely have been better.

Lots of things inform our cultural perceptions of motherhood, what it means and what it looks like, but TV is, by far, one of the most effective. If you’re around my age, you probably grew up with Roseanne, Peggy Bundy and Lorelai Gilmore on your televisions, with occasional detours to Nick at Night to watch Carol Brady, June Cleaver and Morticia Addams.

Is it possible that the Givenchy Antigona is just as omnipresent in the celebuverse as the Chanel Flap or the Hermès Birkin? I think that statement might be true, as of this week. The jury’s still out on the rest of the month.

Stars: They’re just like us! Sort of. While the average bag lover might not receive the next bag of her dreams as a gift from a designer, we all act more or less the same way once we get it in our hot little hands.

Chloé‘s star is on the rise once again, thanks to recent hits like the Drew and the brand new Faye, which have both seen a lot of love from celebs in the month of April. In other celeb bag news, Kim Kardashian now owns her own customized Olympia Le-Tan book clutch.

Per usual, roughly half the celebuverse insists on only carrying Chanel and Hermès bags today, and the other half mixes it up with choice picks from Chloé, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen and more. Also, if you were going to have lunch with Bradley Cooper, what would you wear?

In designing the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour, it seems like the brand was betting on the fact that there would be an enthusiastic market for a modernized, anonymized take on the classic Hermès Birkin. Although there was much gnashing of teeth in handbag circles when the design debuted, the bet has paid off in spades for the brand, and famous, fashionable women have been some of the bag’s biggest proponents.

There ain’t no party like a Chanel party because a Chanel party is full of beautiful people with even more beautiful handbags. As they do every year, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld descended on the Tribeca Film Festival to host the Chanel Artists Dinner, which celebrates Lagerfeld’s favorite people: actresses and other creatives, mostly (but not always) of the indie variety.

It’s legitimately feels like spring in about three quarters of the US right now, and that means it’s time to bust out the short shorts, the Céline bags, and…Sharon Stone? Sharon is making herself very available to paparazzi this month, for reasons I can’t quite pinpoint, but it’s okay because she looks fabulous and her bag picks are CHOICE.
