Kate Walsh was recently spotted shopping on Melrose in sunny Los Angeles, carrying a tan leather Celine Edge Bag. The appropriately named Edge has been around for a couple of seasons now, and although it’s not quite as visible as the Luggage Tote or Trapeze, it’s still a pretty neat little piece of handbag design. Personally, I think it deserves a little extra love from Celine enthusiasts.

Kylie Jenner was recently spotted making a mad dash out of LAX with a charming Balenciaga Classic Mini Bowling Bag. This bag is a petite, domed version of the Balenciaga Motorcycle Bags that we all know and love. It can currently be obtained in Kylie’s preferred hue for $1,345 at Barneys. The Kardashian-Jenners seem to particularly favor Balenciaga when it comes to their handbag selections – here’s Kim K.
Gwen Stefani was recently spotted heading into No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal’s house in Los Angeles with a bag we haven’t seen for a spell: the Fendi Spy Bag. This bag is a total throwback to the halcyon days of the mid-2000s “It Bag” craze. Fendi hasn’t produced Spy Bags for several years now, and this one sort of looks like it’s been sitting in the back of Gwen’s closet for a while, but we’re glad she decided to take it out for a spin, if only for purposes of our own nostalgia.
Our parade of celebs and their Birkins continues with Katy Perry and her petite, dark grey Hermes Birkin. Katy and her Birkin are seen here leaving dinner at Soho House in NYC, where she dined with One Direction’s Niall Horan. (This occasion probably merits further scrutiny, but you’re here for the handbags, so I’ll move on.) Katy’s bag is a 30cm Hermes Birkin – most of the Birkins we see celebs carrying on PB are of the 35cm variety.
Heiress Tamara Ecclestone recently paid a visit to Hermes Madison Avenue in NYC with her new husband Jay Rutland. She carried an Hermes So Black Alligator Birkin Bag just for the occasion. We actually saw Tamara in NYC with this super rare, exclusive Hermes bag around this exact same time last year. This is the sort of limited edition Hermes bag you’ll only see in the hands of heiresses, top-tier actresses, Kardashians and the like.
Slowly but surely Reese Witherspoon has become something of a divisive figure for celebrity watchers. Some love her prim, slightly preppy style, while others take her distaste for paparazzi and a certain drunken arrest incident that you might remember as proof that she’s a little too much like one of her most memorable characters, Tracy Flick. Either way, we think you have to admit that her collection of handbags is one of the best in Hollywood, particularly if you love a good leather day bag.
Jessica Simpson was recently spotted out and about in NYC, carrying a Givenchy Leopard Antigona Bag, which seems extremely Jessica Simpson-appropriate. In case you’ve never noticed, Jessica has a jaw-droppingly good bag collection, which you can peep in “The Many Bags of Jessica Simpson.” Jessica’s exotic print Givenchy Antigona can currently be snatched up for $2,707 at FarFetch.
What’s Jessica Simpson been up to these days, you ask?
Maria Shriver, her daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger and a PUPPY were recently spotted shopping at Cross Creek in LA. Maria was carrying a gorgeous, red Hermes Crocodile Birkin. From the lovely, slightly slouchy look of the leather, it appears as though she carries it regularly and has for some time. Croc Birkins cost well into the five figures, and the price varies greatly depending on the size.
Dita Von Teese loves all things retro, so we’re thoroughly unsurprised by her penchant for fur, even though once upon a time she was in fact a spokesperson for PETA (which, yes, does seem a tad inconsistent). Here she is arriving for a flight out of LAX, carrying a Delvaux Astrakhan Brillant GM Bag. Delvaux’s lineage goes far beyond “retro”, however; this Belgian brand actually claims to be the oldest luxury leather goods house in the world.
Reese Witherspoon was recently spotted shopping at the uber-popular Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles (a great spot for celeb-spotting) with her hubs Jim Toth and son Tennessee (a true little Southern dumpling). On her arm is a sleek, black calfskin Reed Krakoff Atlantique Bionic Mini Tote. Like a lot of the brand’s designs, the Atlantique Mini has a sharp, slightly futuristic edge.
