Here’s Cindy Crawford at LAX, scurrying past some overzealous autograph seekers while carrying a sleek, black Fendi Peekaboo Bag. (Are you completely disturbed by the small boy holding a pic of Cindy grasping her own boobs? Me too!) You can purchase the Selleria version of Cindy’s Fendi bag for $5,050 at Barneys, as well as peep at the “peekaboo” elements of this bag, which are not so obvious in these pics.

It wasn’t that long ago that holding any of the Kardashians up as style inspiration would have seemed a bit silly; for people who consistently wore expensive clothes, bags and shoes, the finished product just never felt all that chic. Times, they are a-changing, though, with Kim on a very controversial Vogue cover and Kendall Jenner walking a slew of prestigious runways from Marc Jacobs to Givenchy.
The always-adorable Emmy Rossum was recently spotted running errands around Beverly Hills with a minty blue Rebecca Minkoff Blake Bag. This colorful top handle bag really pops with her lacy top, heather jersey skirt and color-matching ballet flats. The Blake is a style from last spring that’s sadly not currently available online, but you can find oodles of Rebecca Minkoff bags, shoes and apparel at ShopBop.
Here’s German supermodel/eternal babe Claudia Schiffer leaving a restaurant in London, carrying a Salvatore Ferragamo Emidia Suede Crossbody Bag. Claudia actually lives in the UK with her husband, film director Matthew Vaughn, and their three kiddos. Her bag is no longer available in stores, but you can shop a vast assortment of Ferragamo handbags, belts, and accessories at Bloomingdale’s.
If you’ve ever wondered exactly what it might be like to be one of Karl Lagerfeld’s special friends, a quick tour through the bag collection of British singer Lily Allen is pretty illuminating. Allen, with her signature mix of fashion world glam and filterless British grunge, is so beloved by Karl that she even starred in a Chanel handbag campaign a few years ago, and now that she’s back in the spotlight after getting married and having a couple of kiddos, we thought it was high time we looked into her collection, from her first days of post-MySpace fame to the present.
Nicky Hilton recently attended the NYC screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in a Scandinavian springtime-themed dress from Valentino Spring 2014, and she carried a crimson red Valentino Scarab Finger Clutch from the same collection. (Have you noticed that Nicky Hilton gets an invite to every single NYC movie premiere? I have.) This exact version of Nicky’s clutch is scarce, but you can purchase the black “Gryphon” version for $1,595 at Nordstrom.
Here’s Ms. Liza Minnelli, arriving at LAX and signing a few autographs for fans. As you can clearly see, she’s carrying a black Chanel Classic Flap Bag – an iconic bag for a truly iconic dame of the stage and screen. (What is the verbal equivalent of jazz hands? Asking for a friend.) Liza just performed at Walt Disney Concert Hall last Tuesday, and she’ll soon be taking her new musical, “Simply Liza,” to stages abroad in Vienna, Paris, London and Amsterdam.
Here’s Katie Holmes, walking to the Dangerous Liaisons pilot set in NYC with her Valentino Camouflage Rockstud Trapeze Tote. (Yes, Katie Holmes is returning to TV, after nearly a decade! Rejoice!) Katie has a strange affinity for the camo and Rockstud combo, we saw her with the strikingly similar Valentino Rockstud Camo Tote back in January. I think it’s a good look for her – it adds a nice bit of edge to her preppy New Yorker look.
In general, we like to focus on how to work luxury into our everyday wardrobes; handbags are great for that, and most people just don’t have lives that require them to dress up all that often. Every now and then, though, we see a celeb dolled up in such a pitch-perfect way that we start making mental lists of the places we could wear something similar.
Here’s Lily Allen, leaving her hotel in NYC and carrying a Fendi Fur Peekaboo Bag. She’s also wearing Christian Louboutin Glitter Pigalle Pumps and a Chanel tunic, not that you’d have trouble identifying either. Lily has been in town for a while now and always seems to have a little Chanel on her person. (Here she is with a Chanel Bowling Bag last week.) Lily’s furry Fendi bag is sold out, but you can shop a wide assortment of Fendi bags, shoes, and apparel at Saks.
