Let’s not pretend this is anything more than what it actually is: earlier this week, Karl Lagerfeld threw his Chanel Artist Dinner at Balthazar, which is something he does every year as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. At that event, a wide swath of Lagerfeld’s harem showed up, all sporting impeccable Chanel bags, which were perhaps passed out at check-in.

Here’s Disney starlet/pop singer Ariana Grande, arriving at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday in Washington D.C., carrying a teensy gold Chanel Flap Bag. As you can clearly see, Ariana has chosen to pair her Chanel with an oversized lavender sweater and white go-go boots.
At a certain point, once you’ve been rich and famous for a few years, shopping for yourself has to lose some of its fun. Especially if you’re a star like Katy Perry, who’s known for her style and, as a result, regularly receives freebies and loaned stunners from basically every brand she could desire.
Here’s Miley Cyrus, leaving her hotel in NYC (where she brought her Bangerz tour over the weekend), carrying two recent acquisitions – her new puppy Moonie and one of the mildly controversial Chanel Graffiti Backpacks from Chanel Spring 2014.
There could only be one. We assembled the bracket, you voted through four rounds, and finally, Chanel is the winner of 2014 PurseBlog March Madness, beating out Celine in the final round, plus all its previous competitors. With a bag lineup that ranges from true classics like the Classic Flap to the avant-garde beef bags of the Chanel Supermarche Spring 2014, Chanel’s audience is wide and its prestige and heritage are huge.
Here’s Lily Allen, leaving her hotel in NYC and carrying a Fendi Fur Peekaboo Bag. She’s also wearing Christian Louboutin Glitter Pigalle Pumps and a Chanel tunic, not that you’d have trouble identifying either. Lily has been in town for a while now and always seems to have a little Chanel on her person.
Here’s Khloe Kardashian, leaving LA with a Chanel Graffiti Backpack and Kim and Kourtney following behind. This bag was the marquee accessory from Chanel’s Spring 2014 runway, and we’re not at all surprised that one of the Kardashians already has it in her clutches.
Here’s UK pop star Lily Allen, carrying a blue lambskin Chanel Bowling Bag while shopping at Intermix in Soho. (I feel an urgent need to add her sweater to my closet immediately.) We’ve seen Lily carrying a lot of Chanel in the past year, and for good reason: Lily is one of Karl Lagerfeld’s special pets.
