Here’s heiress Nicky Hilton, out and about in NYC, carrying yet another classic Chanel bag. This one is the Chanel Kelly Bag, and yes, it has a similar top handle structure to the Hermès bag of the same name. Both bags are named in honor of the late, great Grace Kelly, of course.

Here’s Reese Witherspoon, performing random acts of Reese Witherspoon-ness in LA, all while carrying a Bulgari Serpenti Tote. (The name of the bag won’t make any sense unless you look closely at those enameled palladium snake handles and that sneaky little snake-head zip pull.) You can currently find Reese’s exact bag in beautiful black nappa leather for $3,250 at Bulgari.
Full-time fashion maven Alexa Chung was recently spotted leaving Alice + Olivia in Soho, NYC, carrying a Mark Cross Small Grace Box Bag. It looks boxy and inconspicuous enough, but the interior unfolds like a miniature streamer trunk! You can find a black calfskin version that’s a little larger for $2,495 at MATCHESFASHION.COM.
Here’s Kendall Jenner, dropping into the Barneys Soho location for a little shopping break after a couple days of pre-NYFW model castings. (No word on which designers’ runway show she’ll appear in first.) Her bag is an all-black Céline Nano Luggage Tote, which is among her favorites, and makes an appearance on both sisters in the The Many Bags of Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Here’s Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, shopping with her daughter Aja in Santa Monica and carrying a chic Chloé Clare Python Shoulder Bag. No one can rock a pair of totally destroyed cut-off shorts with a designer handbag quite like Alessandra.
She’s already been photographed carrying (“carrying”) Chanel in CR Fashion Book, and with parents like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it was clearly only a matter of time until little North West started carrying bags of her own, even if she still lacks the manual dexterity necessary to actually grasp them in her adorably chubby little toddler hands.
[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]
Models and great handbags go together like peanut butter and jelly.
