Here’s Ariana Grande, leaving BBC Radio 1 in London last week with a black leather Rebecca Minkoff Paris Mini Top Handle with gold hardware. This bag is brand new for fall, and you can currently find it for the surprisingly modest price of $295 at Rebecca Minkoff.

Friday is National Handbag Day (did we already mention that?), and that means that our week is even more dedicated to handbags than it usually is. We profile at least one bag collection of some sort per week, whether it’s based on an individual’s ample closet or the attendees at a particular event, but because of the looming spectre of NHD, we wanted to do something a little extra this week.
Here’s Jessica Alba, arriving at JFK in NYC to catch a flight to destinations unknown. (Our money is on LA.) Jessica is carrying a chic, animal print Nina Ricci Marché Tote, which pops nicely against her all-neutral travel ensemble. You can find this design in black calf leather with suede panels for $1,950 at Net-A-Porter.
Paris Fashion Week is the grandaddy of them all, and the street style certainly reflected that. Like Milan Fashion Week before it, brands invited fewer celebrities, so editors, bloggers and street style stars got more of a chance to shine. We slogged through a million (only a slight exaggeration) photos of the proceedings to find the best bags on the most stylish stars, and you can check them all out below.
Here’s internationally renowned human rights lawyer (and accidental style maven) Amal Alamuddin, hand in hand with new husband George Clooney (some guy who’s acted in/produced/directed a few movies) in Venice, heading to their civil ceremony. Amal is carrying a tasteful Stella McCartney Beckett Envelope Clutch that perfectly matches her chic wedding pants suit (not something I thought I’d ever hear myself say).
Amber Rose is no stranger to paparazzi cameras, but she’s receiving a little extra unwanted attention this week after announcing her rather sudden divorce from Wiz Khalifa. Here she is ducking out the back entrance of Bossa Nova in LA after dinner with some friends, carrying a gorgeous, polished leather Tom Ford Charlotte Zip Pocket Tote, complete with Tom’s trademark yellow gold hardware.
