Hilary Duff is a huge fan of Goyard bags, because as a new mama juggling her toddler Luca with the various demands of being a celeb, she’s a huge fan of versatility. Goyard bags are nothing if not versatile. Here’s Hilary out and about with Luca in Beverly Hills, carrying a Goyard St. Louis Tote as both purse and baby bag – and it’s not even the same Goyard St.

Here’s well-bundled supermodel Karolina Kurkova (how often does one get to utter those words, in that order?) carrying a glossy black croc-stamped Celine Phantom Luggage Tote while smart-phoning her way down Park Avenue with her husband Archie Drury in NYC. You know it’s unbearably frigid in New York when the supermodels aren’t showing any skin.
If you’ve been following our celeb posts for the past two weeks, you’ve probably noticed that certain winter handbags trends have just emerged in full force: the return of the Birkin, a lot of black and dark burgundy bags, Celine bags aplenty, and CROC, lots of croc.
When it comes to Sharon Osbourne’s handbag preferences, it’s Chanel and only Chanel, almost exclusively. She does carry other brands from time to time, but as of late, she seems to favor black Chanel bags of every shape and size. Here’s Sharon leaving her hotel in Tribeca in the bitter NYC cold with a gorgeous Chanel Alligator Satchel. (We’re not 100% certain that this is alligator and not croc, but since Chanel generally seems to prefer gator to croc for most of its bags, it seems a safe bet.)
Last we saw Sharon, she was wrangling a startlingly massive, black Chanel Flap Bag.
An auburn-haired Mandy Moore was recently spotted carrying a Loeffler Randall Work Tote on her way to get her hair done at Andy Lecompte Salon in LA. This roomy, colorblocked carryall is currently on sale at Saks for $455 (down from $650), making it one of the most affordable celeb handbag selections we’ve featured on PB in several weeks, if not months.
Kate Walsh was recently spotted shopping on Melrose in sunny Los Angeles, carrying a tan leather Celine Edge Bag. The appropriately named Edge has been around for a couple of seasons now, and although it’s not quite as visible as the Luggage Tote or Trapeze, it’s still a pretty neat little piece of handbag design. Personally, I think it deserves a little extra love from Celine enthusiasts.
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. The Kardashian-Jenners seem to particularly favor Balenciaga when it comes to their handbag selections – here’s Kim K.
Gwen Stefani was recently spotted heading into No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal’s house in Los Angeles with a bag we haven’t seen for a spell: the Fendi Spy Bag. This bag is a total throwback to the halcyon days of the mid-2000s “It Bag” craze. Fendi hasn’t produced Spy Bags for several years now, and this one sort of looks like it’s been sitting in the back of Gwen’s closet for a while, but we’re glad she decided to take it out for a spin, if only for purposes of our own nostalgia.
Our parade of celebs and their Birkins continues with Katy Perry and her petite, dark grey Hermes Birkin. Katy and her Birkin are seen here leaving dinner at Soho House in NYC, where she dined with One Direction’s Niall Horan. (This occasion probably merits further scrutiny, but you’re here for the handbags, so I’ll move on.) Katy’s bag is a 30cm Hermes Birkin – most of the Birkins we see celebs carrying on PB are of the 35cm variety.
Heiress Tamara Ecclestone recently paid a visit to Hermes Madison Avenue in NYC with her new husband Jay Rutland. She carried an Hermes So Black Alligator Birkin Bag just for the occasion. We actually saw Tamara in NYC with this super rare, exclusive Hermes bag around this exact same time last year. This is the sort of limited edition Hermes bag you’ll only see in the hands of heiresses, top-tier actresses, Kardashians and the like.
Slowly but surely Reese Witherspoon has become something of a divisive figure for celebrity watchers. Some love her prim, slightly preppy style, while others take her distaste for paparazzi and a certain drunken arrest incident that you might remember as proof that she’s a little too much like one of her most memorable characters, Tracy Flick. Either way, we think you have to admit that her collection of handbags is one of the best in Hollywood, particularly if you love a good leather day bag.
