Celebrities blitzed through airports all over the world this week with designer bags that demanded our attention. Natural leathers, python and primary colors seem to be particularly in this week, and there are a few especially gorgeous classics in today’s roundup that you definitely shouldn’t miss.

When it comes to luxury bags, it’s almost always decades-old (if not centuries-old) design houses that dominate the landscape. Until very recently, that was especially true on the red carpet; not a lot had changed in evening bag design since Hollywood as we know it, with all its award shows and movie premieres, sprung up.
Céline still holds a firm grip on the hearts of celebrities, and they have the bags to prove it. Céline is still much beloved by hordes of less famous bag lovers, of course, but we can’t all bankroll the Luggage Tote collection of our dreams.
We’ve always adored the Céline Classic Box Bag, and this week, celebs are reminding us why we love it so much. Even though it was temporarily eclipsed by the Luggage Tote for a year or two (or three), the Box may be a more enduring style.
I have a big spot for Prada bags in my heart. One of my first premiere designer bags was a Prada Nylon Messenger Bag that I carried for college, and while I know that sounds ridiculous, it was nothing short of amazing.
If you, like me, do not live in California, you’re probably not familiar with Craig’s. It’s a West Hollywood restaurant that’s been open for about four years, and in that time, I’d wager that nearly every legitimately famous human in Hollywood (and a bunch who are hoping to be famous in the near future) has had at least one meal there.
It’s that time of year again, when celebrities make the grand voyage to New Jersey to attend the Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic and pretend they like or understand polo. I love the pageantry of polo: the food, the champagne, the horses, the outfits, the stomping of the divots and, of course, the handbags.
