Here’s an enthusiastic Hilary Duff, hopping into a Porsche with her Chanel Boy Bag after running a few errands in West Hollywood. We saw Hilary carrying this same bag at Coachella last month. (Top places I would not take my Chanel bag: 1.
Here’s Lily Allen, returning to London on Tuesday after attending the Met Gala in NYC Monday night, where she wore head-to-toe Chanel. Incidentally, she’s carrying a grey version of the Chanel Graffiti Backpack here with at least two Fendi Bag Bugs dangling from the zipper pull, which amounts to proof positive that Lily Allen is basically Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite person in the whole world, at this moment in time.
Here’s Goldie Hawn, out and about in LA over the weekend, sporting a look that’s very popular among wealthy ladies of leisure: Lululemon sweats and pricey designer handbags. The bag is a Chanel Paris-Edimbourg Quilted Satchel, and it’s from the brand’s Scotland-themed Metiers d’Art collection from last year.
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.

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.
