Miranda Kerr was recently spotted carrying a beautiful navy Celine Luggage Tote and her adorable son Flynn around NYC. Navy is proving to be a huge color trend for fall. Several months ago, Amanda declared that navy blue was the new neutral, and I tend to agree. If Miranda can successfully match it with this black and pink patterned frock, it can truly go with anything.

Here’s Katie Holmes cruising around solo in NYC, carrying a Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Neverfull Tote. In a rare move for a celeb (or anyone), Katie seems to have opted out of getting her Neverfull monogrammed, choosing instead to go with a custom-color stripe alone. Katie has quite a nuanced designer bag collection, which you can view in its entirety in “The Many Bags of Katie Holmes”!
For reasons I cannot entirely explain, I find British celebrities sort of fascinating. I’m not an anglophile by any stretch of the imagination, but British pop culture seems so slavishly dedicated to such a particular group of people that it’s like there’s this parallel universe of fame out there, people who are just people in New York or LA but who attract paparazzi hordes in London.
Here’s an immaculately dressed Mindy Kaling, leaving the set of the Today show yesterday morning with a classic tan Hermes Birkin on her arm. Mindy is looking amazing these days – this hair, makeup, and styling are all perfect for her. She’s been doing the press rounds to promote the second season of The Mindy Project on FOX. (Which you should absolutely watch, btw.)
I have to say, while it makes sense that Mindy would invest in a Birkin because a) she’s wildly successful and b) she loves other big designer names like Chanel, I initially felt slightly betrayed by her big Birkin splurge.
Here’s Sarah Jessica Parker strolling through the West Village on Sunday afternoon, enjoying the beautiful New York City weather with her adorable twin daughters. SJP’s carrying an extra covetable purple velvet Chanel Boy Bag from the Fall 2012 runway collection. Amanda actually loved this bag so much, she put herself on the wait list for it, but opted out when she saw the bag’s $4K-plus price tag.
Victoria Beckham decided to stick around in NYC for a few days after her NYFW show – here she is shopping at J.Crew in Soho, just like a regular human being! A regular human being who’s carrying a bag from her own luxury line, the Victoria Beckham Victoria Mini Tote, which, you’ll probably notice, is also named after her. But besides having a show at Fashion Week, naming bags after herself, bending it with Beckham and being a bazillionaire, she’s just like us!
Jessica Alba has been in NYC for a full week for New York Fashion Week events – we saw her at the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launch party last week, and she was spotted at the Ralph Lauren runway show yesterday morning. Here she is winding down with an iced coffee and a flashy Jimmy Choo Rebel Mini Studded Shoulder Bag.
What can we say about Miley Cyrus that hasn’t already been said? This girl has been sized up and down from every possible political/social/cultural angle in the last two weeks, but at least she can keep smiling, I guess? (She clearly hasn’t read all those Slate articles about her yet.) Here’s Miley leaving a hotel in London and mugging for the smartphone cams with a few fans.
Your eyes aren’t deceiving you – that’s Jessie Spano herself, Elizabeth Berkley, exiting rehearsals for the new season of Dancing With The Stars in LA, carrying a Stella McCartney Falabella Bag. (For those of you born post-1995, Jessie Spano is a character from Saved by the Bell.) As always, Stella’s bags are entirely leather-free, and this one in particular is a longtime favorite of celebs both veg and non-veg.
Here’s a polished Selena Gomez, arriving at KISS 100 studios in London to promote her new album and tour, carrying a MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Bag. This black and white version of this Selma sold out quickly, but a chic black and grey colorway is still available for $358 at Neiman Marcus. Fortunately for all of us, you don’t have to do double duty as a pop star and actress to add the Selma to your stash.
