Courtney Cox is a pro at keeping it cool and casual while paparazzi are doing their thing a mere three feet away (see the photo after the jump. No zoom lenses in use here.) Here she is exiting Maxfield’s boutique in LA with her black Chanel Classic Flap Bag. This Chanel bag is a tried and true celeb fave – so much so that it makes an appearance in the majority of editions of our ever-popular series “The Many Bags of…” (See: Alexa Chung, Jessica Biel, and Anne Hathaway, for starters.)
It’s easy to see what makes this particular bag such a popular choice – it’s a timeless, versatile bag that goes with everything from sweaters and jeans to red carpet apparel. It has a classic shape, and the metal chain hardware has miraculously avoided being too trendy (or untrendy) for decades. A little backhistory for you PB newbies: the Chanel Classic Flap Bag was designed by Coco herself, and reissued by Karl Lagerfeld in 2005. Obviously, like all Chanel bags, it’s far too iconic to ever be made available to the sprawling internet masses online.
