If I told you you could now get an authentic python handbag for less than $2,000, would you be pleasantly surprised? Or would you (rightfully) slap me in the face? Well, friends, IT EXISTS, and Kate Hudson is carrying one this week.


Celebrities may get to enjoy a quiet, intimate meal within the walls of Craig’s, but they are well aware that they will be extensively photographed once they step outside its confines, and they usually dress accordingly.


Why are Givenchy bags so ubiquitous in autumn? Why am I falling in love with the Antigona all over again? Why does Rashida Jones only carry Céline bags? Why can’t our photo service deliver more photos of Jennifer Lawrence?


Now that it’s fall, the Oscars, Golden Globes and SAG Awards are all mere months away, which means that A-listers and rising film stars alike are making the press rounds to promote their awards season shoo-ins.


Once the air turns crisp, everyone gets excited to pull out their old fall favorites (or stock up on new fall favorites), and apparently this sort of seasonal nostalgia extends to Céline bags. Just think, in mere months our photo service will be awash in bare-legged, sandal-wearing celebrities in the snow.


Paris Fashion Week is, in some ways, the Super Bowl of fashion. Its attendees have played hard all season to get there, and when they’ve arrived, they have to play harder still to come out on top.


Boxy bags are resurgently trendy this week, and celebs seem particularly partial to several beautiful boxy specimens from Mark Cross, Christopher Kane, Les Petits Joueurs, and more. (Strangely, there’s not a single Céline Classic Box Bag in the mix.


Dueling Fashion Weeks should always make for some fantastic celeb handbag voyeurism, and Milan and Paris are definitely delivering. (BTW, have you seen the latest runway offerings from Bottega Veneta, Prada, Fendi and Gucci? Or the great bags that Milan Fashion Week attendees are carrying?)

Meanwhile, back on the mainland, celebs are making some surprisingly novel and surprisingly affordable bag picks.


We’re now three-quarters of the way through the Spring 2016 fashion month, which means Milan has just ended and Paris is beginning. Before we move onto all of the beauty bags that will undoubtedly grace the French runways, though, we wanted to take a look back at the Milan Fashion Week’s most notable star style.


The first few big bags for fall are starting to emerge, and a few of the big summer bags may have the longevity to make it until next summer. Only time (and the longevity of any given A-list celeb’s endorsement) will tell.
