A certain iconic handbag has become something of a hot topic this week (more on that later this morning), but earlier this week, we were all were blithely unaware of the coming storm. Celebrities stepped out with both croc bags and Birkins, as well as gorgeous bags from brands like Chloé, Givenchy and up-and-coming bag brand Dannijo.

If you’re thinking to yourself, “Wait, didn’t PurseBlog already do a deep dive into Sofia Vergara‘s handbag wardrobe,” you’re not wrong. We did just that about two years ago, but because of a software glitch, it was gone forever. Today, though, we’ve pieced it back together, plus all the beautiful bags that Vergara has worn since.
Like all of the highest of hig-end handbag brands, Givenchy has a few signature styles that they can comfortably rely on to generate profits and perpetuate their brand’s legacy (though one of those styles just underwent a moderate revamp). Regular celeb endorsement is a crucial part of that business model, and Givenchy has absolutely no problems in that department.
Emmy Rossum has one of the most distinctive personal styles in Hollywood, mostly because it’s so not Hollywood. She dresses like millions of American women with more traditional, less trendy personal tastes aspire to dress in their everyday lives: classic, ladylike, slightly conservative.
The handbags in today’s roundup command your respect, even if the some of the celebs carrying them don’t always succeed in that task. It’s worth noting that this week, in addition to our usual housewives, Jenners and professional fashion show attendees, we do have an actual Dame and Amy Schumer in the mix.
I’m unsure of the exact math, but when you have two appearances by Beyoncé in any given blog post, your A-lister cred somehow more than doubles. Today, the handbag picks are especially high-end. There’s plenty of luxe celeb bags from Dior, Hermès and Céline to feast your eyes on this week, as well as some truly eyebrow-raising looks from a few of your favorite celebs.
Celebrities continue to school us in the art of dressing like a celebrity for all occasions. If you’d like to know what to wear if you’re boarding a yacht in Italy before 6 pm, or if you’re grabbing lunch with your boyfriend, who used to be in a prominent boy band and may or may not be more famous than you at this point in your career (it’s debatable), then please, read on!
Almost, but not quite. It was a busy weekend for celebs, what with Wimbledon, extremely high-profile weddings and a mass celeb exodus from Paris Couture Week. All that celeb news, combined with numerous celeb cheating/divorce rumors that we’re too classy to mention here will indubitably make for some premium tabloid reading tomorrow.
There may not be much for bag lovers to anticipate inside Paris Haute Couture Week (even brands known for their bags generally don’t include them in couture collections), the bag-spotting outside is still excellent. Fashion insiders come from all corners of the globe to see the world’s finest clothing, and they bring great bags with them.
As if on cue, celebs have suddenly swapped out the uber-distressed denim short shorts for linen blazers, summer dresses and all the elegant wardrobe staples we associate with summer. This celeb bag roundup also features a very visceral, summery mix of colors and textures: off-whites, light greys, linens and stitched leathers.
