Since we started doing daily celebrity coverage a couple of years ago, you guys have picked up on the same phenomenon I have: a star’s cultural clout is almost always inversely proportional to the quality of her handbag collection. There are exceptions here and there–most notably, Reese Witherspoon–but the reason that reality stars and tabloid fixtures love carrying designer bags is the same reason that many of us do, or at least why we did when we started.

If you woke up today wondering if Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss are still lady besties, the answer is an enthusiastic “YES.” Here are Taylor and Karlie, leaving the Sephora in the Meatpacking District of NYC together. The girls had a cute little lunch date on Wednesday, which included a Sephora pop-in and a leisurely lunch at ABC Kitchen.
Actress Emmy Rossum made an appearance at a No Kill LA Animal Adoption event over the weekend, where she picked up a new pup and provided the animal rescue organization with a little bit of always-needed publicity via Twitter and Instagram (as well as slightly more traditional media outlets).
Oh yes, you read that correctly. Kim Kardashian recently became the proud recipient of an Hermès Herbag that was lovingly (and intentionally) hand-painted by her daughter North. This “customized” Herbag is, of course, a gift from Kanye. Here’s the happy couple walking into a meeting together in LA, with Kim’s new bag/North’s handiwork on full display.
Here’s Karlie Kloss, world’s most relatable, affable, low-key supermodel, ambling around NYC with a massive Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag. This bag, as you might imagine, is the largest version of the popular Chanel style, and we rarely see it “in the wild,” though it does make a few appearances in “100 Celebs and Their Favorite Chanel Bags”.
Our celebrity Halloween handbag coverage continues with yet another choice selection from last weekend’s festivities. Here’s Bethenny Frankel, trick-or-treating with daughter Bryn over the weekend in Tribeca. Bethenny is carrying a silver Chanel Classic Flap Bag, which is actually a pretty good hands-free option for trick-or-treating in the ultra-expensive neighborhood environs.
Kelly Osbourne attended Adam Lambert’s annual Halloween party at Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood last weekend dressed as Margot Tenenbaum from the film The Royal Tenenbaums. She rounded out her costume with a vintage-looking Hermès Kelly Bag. It should probably be noted that an Hermès bag is not an absolutely essential ingredient of the Margot Tenenbaum costume, but everything else Kelly is wearing is spot-on.
