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.
We love a good high-low collab, and 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target is the best one to come along in eons. The Target-Phillip Lim lovefest officially commenced this week with a snazzy NYFW launch party. Here’s Jessica Alba, ready to party hard with a sharp-looking 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Satchel – her sweater is from the line as well.
September’s already been very good to Kate Upton – she snagged the coveted Model of the Year award at the Style Awards this week, and she’s currently doing her best Marilyn Monroe impersonation on the cover of the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, which celebrates the publication’s 100th anniversary. Here she is arriving in NYC for the Style Awards, carrying a Celine Crocodile Luggage Tote.
Here’s Sarah Jessica Parker, about to treat a nearby paparazzo to some very creative hand gestures while walking her son to school in New York City. On her arm is a sunny yellow Louis Vuitton W Bag with flocked monogram motifs. The W is a new LV bag for this season; it’s so new, it’s not even available online yet, but we know that Sarah’s all-leather PM version retails for $4,400.
You may know Olivia Munn from her role as a journalist on The Newsroom or her stint as a correspondent on The Daily Show, but I’ll always remember her for something very specific. Olivia sat front row at a Michael Kors show that I attended a couple of seasons ago, and when I saw her in person, I was struck by how absolutely gorgeous she was.
Here’s newlywed Kate Bosworth with her fresh new hubs, movie director Michael Polish, returning to Los Angeles from their Montana wedding over the weekend. (Kate’s outfit totally says “Montanta chic”…if there is such a thing. Montanans? Fill us in.) Kate’s carrying a Chloe Baylee Bag, the latest design from Chloe to catch the attention of a myriad of celebrities. You can pick up a Baylee in black and blue for $2,050 at Nordstrom.
Actress Rosario Dawson was recently spotted greeting fans and just being an all-around nice, normal, reasonable human being in downtown NYC. On her arm: a teensy black Coach Classic Shoulder Purse, which is a ridiculous steal at $198. (If that price doesn’t scream “IMPULSE BUY”, I don’t know what does.) It also comes with a pair of big, honking signature tassels, not seen here on Rosario’s bag.
Summer is coming to a close, which is terrible for a number of reasons – first and foremost because I only just found a swimsuit I actually like a mere two weeks ago. But also, your opportunities for music festival hooliganism, beach frolicking, and Hamptons weekend getaways are all about to vanish, like so many autumn leaves. Fall has its own charms, of course, but before we break out the light sweaters, it’s important that we pay proper homage to the best and the brightest celebrity handbag moments of Summer 2013.
