If you’ve been reading these posts for a while, you probably know that my tone can veer toward snarky from time to time. Ladies and gents, nothing tests my powers of snark-restraint like writing about the Real Housewives of Basically Anywhere.
Celebrity Style and Fashion
Kourtney Kardashian is the last of the Kardashian-Jenner clan to get our in-depth bag treatment, but since she just gave birth to her third child a few days ago, we figured we had waited long enough. No time like the present, right?
Last week, celebs attended fashion shows in NYC, shopped in Santa Monica, and schlepped through LAX with their pets, all while carrying some pretty fantastic bag choices. Today, we have an unusual mix of both celebs you’re pretty used to seeing around these parts (Olivia Palermo, Taylor friggin’ Swift) and celebs you almost never see featured here (Kirstie Alley, Jordin Sparks), as well as celebs that don’t get as much handbag glory.
Last week’s holiday travel rush had celebs busting out their biggest and best travel bags, totes and duffels. But this week, it’s business as usual. Some celebs are favoring the minis, some are still ferrying around their gigantic Louis Vuitton and Givenchy bags, and Meryl (FRIGGIN’) Streep was actually spotted carrying the same bag we saw on Kesha’s arm last week.
Celebs spent their Thanksgiving breaks the same way we all did: navigating crowded airports and juggling unwieldy luggage, all to break bread with the family members they love but see all too rarely. All but two of the celebs pictured below are outside or inside of airports, and because celebs fully expect to be photographed at airports, their bag choices are always truly top-notch.
Actress Bella Thorne may only be 17, but she’s already got an enviable bag collection socked away in her closet. She’s super into Chanel lately, but also of particular note are her clutches–Bella attends a ton of events, parties and premieres, and unlike some of her bagless brethren, she almost always carries a little bag to coordinate with her outfit.
When I sat down to compile the photos for this post, I didn’t know that it was going to be about Chanel. As I started looking through our photo agency’s recent archives, though, it became clear that it had to be; no other brand exerts the kind of dominance among high-profile women’s handbag collections that Chanel does.
