LA readers, please dish! When you dine at Craig’s, are you guaranteed at least three celebrity sightings? Because the flood of paparazzi photos coming from outside of Craig’s would certainly suggest as much. Craig’s is obviously one of the preferred paparazzi hotspots for any celeb looking to generate a little free publicity, and it’s also one of our best resources for fabulous, full frontal celeb handbag pics.


Several of you have requested that we take a deep dive into Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star EJ Johnson‘s handbag collection, and after patiently waiting for his paparazzi photo archive to grow, we’re happy to oblige you today.


This week we have your usual slew of models, heiresses, actresses and people who model but are arguably more famous for friending other famous people. (Here’s looking at you, Gigi Hadid.) It’s late summer, when celebrities tend to scatter to the far reaches of the Earth in search of a beach where the paparazzi won’t bother them.

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).


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.
