Fair warning: this edition of our celeb bag round-ups is a solid 50% Chanel, Céline and Hermès. This intel probably elicited one of two responses: squeals of excitement or groans of fatigue. If you’re in the latter camp: I sympathize, but our celeb friends clearly do not.

It’s safe to say a lot of celebs started the week still a tad hungover from Golden Globes after parties, but in the days leading up to the Globes, everyone was clean-cut, (comparatively) sober and busy making the long journey to LA.
It’s extremely possible that Céline’s latest ad campaign (featuring literary icon Joan Didion) has bumped Céline to the forefront of everyone’s bag-addled minds, because we saw an absurd number of celebs carrying Céline last week. It was like 2013 all over again.
The 2015 Golden Globes took place last night, and that means that awards season has officially begun. As we do every year, we’ll be scoping out all the best handbags from the industry’s fanciest red carpets. Although our photo service was inexplicably light on pictures from last night’s main red carpet, we scoured both those photos and those from the after-parties to bring you over a dozen celebrity bag choices from Sunday’s festivities.
Some weeks, the universe sends us nothing but Real Housewives carrying the same (beautiful, but the same) Chanel Flap Bags or Hermès Birkins we see all the time. We don’t mind those weeks (and we never tire of seeing those bags), but occasionally, the stars are aligned just so and some of our favorite actresses and singers will come out of hiding, carrying some handbags we don’t see every day.
We’ll begin the new year with some solid celeb bag picks from the final days of 2014. The days following Christmas are always a blur of shopping, leftovers, air travel and, usually, more shopping. LA-based celebs did their usual laps around LAX and Fred Segal, which is pretty much always a paparazzi sure-thing, NYC-based celebs did much of the same, and still other celebs popped up in idyllic holiday hang-outs like Aspen, as they so often do this time of year.
First things first: this list isn’t quite as comprehensive as most year-end lists you’ll read this week, because it primarily deals with handbags we saw celebs carry after June. To get a better feel for ALL the year’s best bag moments, you’ll also want to consult “The Best Celebrity Bag Looks of Summer 2014″ as well.
