Celebrities and Chanel Bags

Around the PurseBlog offices, we spend an inordinate amount of time poring over photos of celebs and their favorite handbags, and over time, one thing has become apparent: famous people really, really love Chanel bags. Non-famous people do too, of course, but those photos are harder to come by.

Singers, actresses, models, It Girls, reality TV stars, novelists – there’s a little bit of everything in this compendium of celebrities and their beloved Chanel bags, and that’s probably what’s most notable about the finished product. It takes quite the iconic bag to look at home on the shoulders of such a diverse cast of characters, and Chanel’s signature pieces look lovely on all (well, almost all) of the women below.

    So pretty much a classic flap parade of bags :/

    • http://Colette.com Colette Pelissier

      I have a new grey caviar jumbo, 2013 hot pink and turquoise jumbos and
      also new red woc plus two vintage hot pink chevron (one with flap and
      one with ball) That I’m selling. You can message me from my site
      colette.com Ebay puts restrictions on how much you sell in a month if
      you’re new so I made my own site for the models and myself to have fum
      with and get rid of things we won’t use or impulse buys when we have too
      much stuff. I will donate a % to charity of your choice. I prefer
      Humane Society and any charity that helps animals. So check out
      Colette.com and Purseblog how do I advertise here? I am putting about 30
      new items this week. Oh and you can also see me naked and buy fine art,
      crazy right? xoxo Colette And this one: http://colette.com/products/chanel-hot-pink-wallet-on-chain-2014

  • Mahua

    so if i could buy just one Chanel bag which one should i chose – the classic Chanel flap bag or the Chanel boy bag ( which i like more )

    • Kristen V

      Flap bag is “the classic” Chanel bag that you’ll be able to wear forever. However, I’m a firm believer in buying what you like vs buying what’s trendy/status symbol of the moment.

      • shueaddict

        hear hear … the heart wants what the heart wants.

    • Abbi

      I’d buy the Boy if thats the one you are craving. It’s proved to be a classic hit and i dont think the design will be going anywhere anytime soon.

    • Divnanata

      I have both – a black an silver classic Maxi and a black and bronze large Boy – and I love them equally. The Boy is edgier. Forget one. Buy two or more!

    • http://phenomenalyouthcanada.blogspot.ca/ LC

      I’d buy the flap bag. I personally own the WTC. Can not afford the flap. LOL.

    • Mahua

      Thanx a lot everyone for ur response … Will take my decision very soon and you have made it easier for me.. Hope will be the proud owner of a Chanel bag soon enough !!!

  • Cbl

    Isn’t that Stacy keibler, not Julianne hough?

  • Ralli

    I realize this might be blasphemous, but I really don’t like Chanel. It’s a brand that’s unfortunately been overexposed – and with the latest price increases and quality complaints, I don’t see myself owning a Chanel at all. I wanted a reissue for a while but then I tried out Celine and fell in love with the minimalistic design. I itched for a reissue again but liked the YSL Muse 2 more. I just wouldn’t be unique with a Chanel anything.

    • Sandra

      Chanel is iconic …bags that you can truly say have stood the test of time. The quality issue, well, you should probably read the forums and see that all brands have issues, even the brands you mention. If you do not like Chanel that is perfectly fine…more for us!

      • RG

        why so hostile?

    • Aileen

      You are right about the quality. Of all the name brand purses I have owned, this is the only brand I have had issues with–hardware malfunction (toggle clasp, rings detaching from the leather) and unraveling of the stitches in several of the bags. When I brought it to a leather luggage restorer, they told me that it was bound to happen because it wasn’t pieced together correctly to begin with. I found out my sisters had the same issues, and that was just in the bag’s first year!

      • Scottsdale Kim

        I’ve had quality issues as well. The dye rubbed off numerous corners on my Cerf tote within the first year and I have a chain strap on another bag that has become disconnected numerous times. I use extreme care with my bags and do not have these issues wih Celine or Hermes.

  • Mila

    I just LOVE the lambskin bowling bag!

    That Chanel green nylon bag that Kelly Osbourne sports must be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen in bag design. Horrid.

    Does anyone know who makes the coat that Karlie Kloss is wearing? Thanks!

  • Andy L

    Where’s Blake Lively?! :o

  • Mya

    Okay so I need serious advice – both from PB team (esp Megs and Amanda) and the lovely PB family. I have saved enough this year for my second Chanel bag and its down to two choices – Classic flap or the Boy bag. I absolutely looove and want both, but I was definitely gonna go for the classic flap until one SA in the Chanel in London insinuated that the Boy may be discontinued soon.
    Now, should I get the Boy this year and save again for a classic flap next year (since it will always be produced), or should I just get my Classic flap and risk losing out on the boy completely (in the event it is indeed discontinued)? Which should I buy right now basically?
    p.s – Was gonna get the classic in black caviar and the boy in metallic.

    • shueaddict

      Here’s my unsolicited advice, if you happen to no longer be quite at your prime (I know 40 is the new 30 do we really feel it?) the Boy bag puts a modern / young spin on ANY look. And it is a great style statement, while remaining relatively understated. It just oozes cool factor (the type that money CAN buy in this case).

      • Mya

        Dear shueaddict, your advice was very much solicited; you are part of the PB family! I quite like your take on the Boy. Though I am still a decade away from my forties, I agree about the Boy bag’s modern spin. Hopefully I will make a decision soon. Thanks a bunch for responding.

      • Steffi

        Hey May, how did you decide? Love both bags!!

    • ebun

      Is your SA sure about the boy being discontinued? Because from my understanding it got bumped up to “classic” status, hence the serious price hike in it’s prices… Back to your question, I’d say buy the one you want less now or the fashion statement (so basically, the metallic boy). Reason being, even with price increases, you will always be willing to pay whatever price for the one you love but will always regret paying more (if you wait) for the bag you love but could have had for cheaper. Hope that analogy makes sense lol

  • krispy

    Does anyone know which brand is Hilary Duff’s sunglasses?

    I bet Gabrielle Bonheur, aka Coco Chanel herself would be rolling inher grave to see what an ostentacious, greedy corporation her once small business has become! She started off as a POOR hat maker you know . Why would I buya $5,000 flap purse when I can literally bought a house for that much in a tiny town in TX. it’s actually a pretty nice house after putting $20,000 into it. Oh but that’s waht Hermes wants to charge for a leather box & with a handle! SMH!

    • Barbie

      I meant literally can & HAVE bought a house for that much! What;s even sicker is that often,these rich celebs get bags handed to them for FREE while the lil’ guy has to scrimp & save!

    love how Cameron diaz is a member of PETA and is carrying a leather bag. Where does she think the leather comes from? She is also a communist and embraces Mao – doesn’t she know that Mao wouldn’t want her to be able to earn money to purchase that bag via capitalism? I thought she hated capitalist pigs. She earned that money – more money then others earn … shouldn’t she divide her money equally among us? Why does she have more money than I do? SMH what a damn hypocrite.

  • Steffi

    I love Chanel flap bags! I have a black caviar Jumbo wgh and I would love to add a black medium/large flap wsh to my collection, but the prices have gone up so much, I really can not justify spending this much money on one purse…

  • http://www.visualimaginings.com MrMotivations

    “Chanel should try pouring some of that #5 stuff on all their bags, since their prices stink to high heaven. You’re looking here at all the women who can afford these garments. I mean, have you ever sniffed a cow? They all smell the same…I need some more coffee……”

  • MomIn4inch

    Well, unless money is no object, the classic styles are both the prettiest and the most versatile.

  • Naeha

    Looking at these, i’m sure i want a classic flap over the boy bag. But also Rihanna with Chanel is rather disconcerting

  • Adrianne

    I’m just starting to wonder if they pass the black Chanel flap bag out to every celebrity like throwing necklaces out at Mardi Gras? If I had their kind of money I would be a little bit more unique!
