Dueling Fashion Weeks should always make for some fantastic celeb handbag voyeurism, and Milan and Paris are definitely delivering. (BTW, have you seen the latest runway offerings from Bottega Veneta, Prada, Fendi and Gucci?


We’re now three-quarters of the way through the Spring 2016 fashion month, which means Milan has just ended and Paris is beginning. Before we move onto all of the beauty bags that will undoubtedly grace the French runways, though, we wanted to take a look back at the Milan Fashion Week’s most notable star style.


The first few big bags for fall are starting to emerge, and a few of the big summer bags may have the longevity to make it until next summer. Only time (and the longevity of any given A-list celeb’s endorsement) will tell.


First of all, props to our fabulous readers for promptly helping us identify the mystery bag from our last celebrity bag round-up. We are eternally #blessed to have your collective bag knowledge and wisdom at our disposal.


Cookie Lyon is not a woman trying to fly under the radar. Not only is Empire‘s heroine a rags-to-riches story, but she spent 17 years in prison in the process, and that kind of forced sacrifice did not inspire in her the desire to go unnoticed.


If you’re one of the literally millions of people impatiently awaiting the season premiere of Empire tomorrow, you know why we’ve convened today to celebrate the handbag stylings of Taraji P. Henson. She plays Cookie Lyon, who’s not only the show’s heart and soul, but also its most fantastic character and the carrier of some of the most notable designer bags on television.


Black leather is an extremely safe bet if you want to look glam for Fashion Week; that’s why we see a notable uptick in celebs wearing black leather motorcycle jackets and carrying Givenchy bags every September.


The fashion on the red carpet at last night’s 2015 Emmy Awards was a little bit more adventurous than we’ve seen at a high-profile awards ceremony in the recent past, and thankfully, plenty of actresses also added cute little clutches to their outfits.


New York Fashion Week is happening now (this seems like one of the longer Fashion Weeks, no?), and countless celebrities are being ferried through JFK on their way to front rows all over town. Givenchy and Hermès seem to be the celeb brands of choice for all NYFW travel-related purposes this week.


New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 draws to a close today, and before we (figuratively) jaunt off to London, we’re taking a look back at the best celebrity style inspiration we found outside of the week’s huge lineup of shows.
