Here’s Iggy Azalea, signing autographs outside of BBC Radio 1 Studios in London with a white Céline Phantom Luggage Tote on her arm. Iggy was there with gal pal Rita Ora to do a little promo for her new single, “Black Widow,” on which Ms. Ora guests. Iggy obviously has a decent celeb stylist on call at this point in her career, but I have to say, few clothing items fill me with instant rage like that bizarre-o top she’s wearing here.

Iggy has added some very nice bags to her collection in recent months; for example, we saw her carrying a lovely Dior Addict Tote back in July. The Phantom Luggage Tote is a solid choice, even though Phantom Luggage Tote fever has cooled considerably in the last year, but I can’t help thinking that Céline can’t be the most Iggy-appropriate brands. I would expect her to spend her “Fancy” royalties on edgier bags from the likes of Alexander McQueen or Fendi, perhaps.

Here’s Kendall Jenner, dropping into the Barneys Soho location for a little shopping break after a couple days of pre-NYFW model castings. (No word on which designers’ runway show she’ll appear in first.) Her bag is an all-black Céline Nano Luggage Tote, which is among her favorites, and makes an appearance on both sisters in the The Many Bags of Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Ms. Jenner reportedly wants to drop her last name and simply go by “Kendall” henceforth. While her modeling career is particularly hot right now, that sort of declaration seems just a tad premature, and definitely not something you want to announce right before NYFW. UNLESS you’re basically a Kardashian, of course.

[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]

As we continue to inch our way through summer, the advancing date means just one thing in the fashion world: fall collections are starting to pop up all over the Internet. Céline’s Winter 2014 Handbag Lookbook just popped up online, and we’ve got all the bags below. (more…)

Here’s Anne Hathaway filming The Intern in Manhattan, and that is indeed Robert DeNiro in a couple of these shots. Anne, or her character, in this case, is carrying a natural leather Céline Classic Box Bag. In a shocking twist, the intern in question is actually Robert DeNiro, and not Anne Hathaway. Which makes sense, because if you’ve ever interned in this city, you know the idea of being able to afford a Céline bag while interning full-time is somewhat laughable.

Anne’s new movie, as you might’ve already deduced, is a comedy about a fashion website that brings on an elderly intern (DeNiro), in a shameless bid for yucks, or possibly some sort of tax break. I’m betting DeNiro will mispronounce a lot of designer names, but then totally school everyone with some serious old-person life lessons. While you wait for this movie to hit theaters, have a look at “The Many Bags of Anne Hathaway,” which is definitely due for a follow-up post.

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, enjoying a night out with Scott Disick in the city after returning from an extended romp in the Hamptons with the fam. The couple dined at NYC’s super-trendy (and, from what I’ve heard, super delicious) Italian-American restaurant Carbone. Kourtney’s bag of choice for the occasion was a Celine Tie Tote, which we’ve seen her carrying before.

Now that it’s July, I’m coming around to this oversized Celine style a little more. It may not be the next Phantom Luggage Tote, but it does seem to make a superb summer carryall. Speaking of that infamous “It” bag, the Kardashian sisters make quite a few appearances in our round-up of celebrities who are totally devoted to the bag.

In the past few years, no bag has gained the quick and steady popularity of the Céline Luggage Tote. The bag reached mass It Bag hysteria in 2011 and has yet to to waiver from the pedestal everyone has placed it on. In fact, you can see this bag on the arms of basically everyone – actresses, reality stars, style bloggers and fashion insiders alike. A day hasn’t gone by in a long time in which I haven’t seen a version of the Céline Luggage Tote.

While many know the Mini version of this bag as the classic, the Nano popped up a few seasons later and gathered quite the following. I’ve already reviewed my much-beloved and little-known Celine Triptyque, and now I want to give you a look at my Celine Nano.

Here’s how my Céline Nano Luggage Tote scores in our PurseBlog Purseonals ratings: (more…)

The Celine Summer 2014 collection is currently in stores, and the most stand-out aspect of the line is the bright colors Celine used for the season. From bright green python to a trio of primary colors, we’ve gathered the nine most colorful bags of Celine Summer 2014. (more…)

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, arriving at LAX to catch a flight with boyfriend Scott Disick. Kourtney’s carrying the Celine Knot Tote. There was healthy speculation that this bag would be Celine’s third huge hit in a row, right behind the Luggage Tote and the Trapeze Bag, but the Knot Tote just hasn’t caught on with the designer bag-loving masses quite like either of its predecessors. However, based on this photo, it does seem to hold quite a bit and probably makes a pretty good handbag pick for air travel. (Also, it looks less like a picnic basket when it’s not overstuffed.)

The Kardashians are a particularly Celine-crazed bunch, so it comes as no surprise that the Celine Knot Tote isn’t Kourtney’s only bag from the brand; she also owns a baby blue Celine Trio Bag and a well-loved snakeskin Luggage Tote. Her sister Khloe owns numerous Celine bags, including Phantom Luggage Totes in several different colorways. You can see all of them in “The Many Bags of Khloe Kardashian.” Kourtney doesn’t have her own edition of “Many Bags” just yet, but she’s definitely one of the next on deck.

This is one of those posts that needs little introduction. Celine’s Fall 2014 handbags (which are pre-fall, in tradition industry terms) have surfaced in the form of an official lookbook, and contained therein is a lot of what we’ve come to expect from Celine, plus a few interesting handbag debuts. (more…)

Well, this is a first! As you probably know, Birkenstocks have experienced a strong resurgence in popularity in the last year, and I don’t need to educate anyone here on the prominence of Celine handbags, but it is most unusual to see Birkenstocks and Celine bags paired together! Here’s Mena Suvari, doing exactly that while leaving a nail salon in LA. She’s carrying a black Celine Trapeze Bag and wearing black Birkenstock Mayari Sandals. Celine bags are available at Celine boutiques, natch, but her Birks can be found for a mere $90 at Zappos.com.

Strangely enough, I think the bag and the Birks work just fine together. (Ignore that everything in between in just gym clothes, and try to imagine Mena in a more everyday, actress casual outfit. OR superimpose whatever you think Reese Witherspoon might wear to tie everything together.) If you need more tips on how to style your Birks, there’s plenty of celeb inspiration in our Birk round-up post: “Believe It or Not, Celebs Love Birkenstocks” over on our sister site, TalkShoes.
