Little Abigail Breslin is almost a lady now at 17 years old, and I think it’s safe to say she’s quickly developing her own ideas about fashion. Here she’s paired a classic tartan Burberry Canterbury Shoulder Bag with a flowing white full-length dress, a fitted black blazer, and what we believe to be Jeffrey Campbell studded wedges. You can pick up Abigail’s Canterbury for $995 at Bloomingdales.

We were JUST gushing about Belgian designer Delvaux’s Madame Shoulder Bag earlier this month, and now here it is, on the arm of the perpertually well dressed Sienna Miller. Sienna was spotted with Delvaux in tow at Vanity Fair’sTribeca Film Festival opening night party in NYC. While Delvaux isn’t yet a household name even amongst the more fashion-savvy set, this luxe leather bag should definitely put the brand on the map for more people.
Here’s the ridiculously pretty and perfect Emmy Rossum, carrying her “Bright Coral” Coach Legacy Mini Tanner Crossbody Bag after a lunch date in Beverly Hills, CA. I love this Mini Tanner for so many reasons: the bold, eye-popping spring hue, the lavishly oversized tassels, and the fact that it’s just big enough to fit an e-reader, for starters. But what I especially love is the miniature price tag.
While searching through pictures of sun-dappled celebs clad in their best boho finery at Coachella earlier this week, I found myself wondering why I had yet to take an in-depth look at the bag collection of Kate Bosworth. Then, of course, I remembered that I’m the one in charge of these things, and if I wanted to make this post happen, then I could just do it myself.
We’ve got a special challenge today for our most bag-savvy readers, and especially our most bag-savvy UK readers! Pippa Middleton was recently spotted in London with this mysterious, buttermilk-hued top handle bag – can you ID it? Pippa and her sis are both known for implementing lots of pieces from smaller, more reasonably priced labels into their wardrobes. One such bag from Modalu London became so popular after it was spotted on Pippa’s arm that the company renamed it after her.
As much as people like to joke about her, Kim Kardashian ain’t no fool when it comes to fashion, and handbags in particular. Before she was famous for being famous, Kim was an LA stylist and boutique owner who frequently sold things from her own closet on eBay. Just because Kimmy’s now an internationally famous megastar who’s about to birth Kanye West’s child doesn’t mean that those wise resale instincts have gone by the wayside; Heritage Luxury Auctions’ upcoming Handbags and Luxury Accessories Signature Auction will include two bags from Kardashian’s ever-growing Hermes collection.
If you’re anything like me, coverage of the hippie-dippy nonsense known as the Coachella Music Festival does not interest you in the least. What does interest me (and perhaps some of you), though, is celebrities acting crazy while carrying fabulous handbags, and Coachella had more of that than perhaps you’d expect. Yes, stars carry ridiculously expensive bags to sweat, dance and get all gross and dusty in the stifling hot desert climate at Coachella.
Brazilian model and Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio looked extremely smart at her birthday celebration at Bagatelle restaurant in LA last week. Alessandra rung in her 32nd consecutive year of superior good looks in an ensemble that paired the classic, statement-making Alexander McQueen Crystal Britannia Union Jack Skull Clutch with a long sleeved white minidress and nude Saint Laurent pumps. You’d hardly suspect that a mere two days lady, she’d be boho-ing it up at Coachella in a crop top and pink Daisy Dukes.
English model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was recently photographed at the airport in LA carrying a cheetah Mulberry Del Rey Animal Print Bag. (You’ve definitely seen Rosie in Victoria’s Secret lingerie, and you might’ve seen her in Transformers 3, but I’m kind of hoping you didn’t.) Young British celebs love their Mulberry, which is of course based in London, like so many of my other fave designer brands.
Here’s the virtually ageless Winona Ryder, carrying a sleek, black Marc Jacobs Antonia Satchel around Manhattan. She and Marc are real-life pals; she did an ad campaign for his brand back in 2003, and they once shared a spread in Harper’s Bazaar. If that doesn’t indicate a close, personal friendship betwixt celeb buddies, then what does, exactly? I hope that Marc gave her a serious “friends and family” discount on this sporty leather satchel, as it’s currently priced at $2,295 at Net-a-Porter.
