The Sundance Film Festival started off as Robert Redford’s Utah-based labor of love, where independent filmmakers could come to share their work and and find support. Now it’s a full-on celebrity carnival, especially for actors and actresses looking for some indie cred and studios hoping that their films will generate some very early Oscar buzz. Of course, anywhere you find celebrities, you’ll find a bevy of beautiful handbags, and today we’re here to aggregate all the great accessories looks that we found at last week’s film fest.

Here are the wee Jenner sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, trying to keep it low key (but failing miserably), shortly after touching down at JFK in NYC. Kendall is heading up the front, carrying a sexy black Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, and both sisters are pulling Louis Vuitton Pegase Suitcases. You can currently purchase Kendall’s sleek Givenchy duffel for $2,325 at Barneys.
Fox Sports football personality Erin Andrews was recently spotted heading from LAX to JFK for the impending Super Bowl festivities. As you can see, she’s overloaded with not just a Celine Luggage Tote, but also a Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote, which means her airport handbag game is about as tight as it gets. (Also, sports personality ladies, we clearly haven’t been paying you enough attention.
The Grammys are always pretty weird, and the 2014 Grammy Awards followed proudly in that tradition. (Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons as a backing band? Sure, why not?) Along with everything else, the stars’ (the ones who bothered to show up and walk the carpet, anyway) handbag choices weren’t exactly in line with what we’ve seen at previous awards shows this season.
R&B singer Keyshia Cole was spotted exiting club 1OAK in West Hollywood with an eye-popping pink VBH Ostrich Brera Bag. The Italian-made Brera bag is made of real, full quill ostrich skin, not embossed leather, which explains the fairly dizzying price tag. (Even so, we’re big fans of VBH’s latest line of exotic bags.) If you’re feeling extra spendy, you can currently pick up Keyshia’s beautiful VBH bag for $7,750 at Bergdorf Goodman.
Christina Ricci recently greeted fans outside the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios while carrying a sleek, black Marc Jacobs The 1984 Satchel. Christina is a huge friend/fan of Marc, and seems to carry his bags almost exclusively. For your information: “The 1984″ is a tribute to the year Marc’s collection originally debuted. You can pick up Christina’s glazed leather bag for $1,495 at Neiman Marcus.
Elle Fanning was recently spotted at LAX carrying a bright cerulean blue Miu Miu Bugatti Bag. No surprises here: it was recently revealed that Elle will be one of the four young actresses featured in Miu Miu’s spring campaign, so it makes sense that she’s repping the brand in her day-to-day life. You can get a carry-with-everything black version of this tidy little dome satchel for $1,450 at Overstock.com.
Like mother, like daughter, especially when it comes to Sharon Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne and their respective handbag collections. We profiled the elder Osbourne’s love for black Chanel bags a few months ago, and now that awards season is upon us, Kelly is gracing all of our televisions even more regularly than she usually does for red carpet coverage. That seemed like enough reason to delve into her handbag collection, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Kelly seems to have on speed dial the same hardworking Chanel sales associate as her mom.
Nene Leakes was recently spotted dining at Nello (a restaurant that is somewhat notorious for being ridiculously expensive and over-the-top, even by NYC standards) with husband Gregg and fellow Housewife (of the NY variety) Sonja Morgan. Her bag is a bright blue Hermes Birkin, natch. Nene loves her Birkins, as do all Real Housewives and “Bravolebrities” – you can see for yourself in our special homage to Bravo-endorsed excess, “The Many Bags of Bravolebrities.”
Nene actually announced this week that her next venture will be her own eponymous clothing line.
Did you feel the change in the air over the weekend? The small, nearly imperceptible shift that meant, half a world away, some fabulous people were doing fabulous things to which none of us were invited? That can only mean one thing: Paris Haute Couture Week is well underway, and both the fashion-famous and the objectively famous were out in force to attend the Chanel, Dior and Versace shows with fabulous (and free, probably) handbags on their arms.
