The Many Bags of Celebs at New York Fashion Week Spring 2014

One of the unsung particularities of New York Fashion Week is the vast spectrum of celebrities in brings out over its eight-day run. There aren’t a lot of parties that could draw both Paris Hilton and Barbara Walters, but at Fashion Week, there’s literally a spot for any celeb who’s interested in cashing a check and sitting upright in the front row for a few minutes. In the interest of journalism (or, you know, something similar!), we felt it our duty to catalog the handbags that these celebs toted into and out of the tents over the past week.

For reasons that I cannot totally explain, there was a ton of Chanel and less Hermes than one might expect. Also popular: a bag from whatever designer’s show you’re attending (or, in the case of models, that you just walked in). Below, the bags of everyone from the fashion-famous to the famous-famous, plus a bunch of people somewhere in between.

      You know, I usually zip through photos for these posts pretty quickly because they’re so time-consuming to put together, but I stopped and stared at that thing for a good 10 seconds.

    Two things, I don’t get carrying clutches and wearing gowns to daytime fashion shows. Second, Paris Hilton still getting invites? And she needs to take fashion tips from her sister.

    I really wish one of these celebs. would surprise me and carry something that is chic but not so celeb. designer. But if you’re getting free stuff, you have to advertise it.

    Love Katie Holmes outfit and purse, and also love Giuliana Rancic, her bob too.

      The people who do the evening gown/clutch thing look really overdressed at the shows, both in photos and in person. There’s nothing less elegant than looking like you’re trying harder than everyone around you.

      I completely agree. These people are supposed to be fashion-forward but dressing in evening gowns and clutches? That is so not chic. And it’s the last bits of summer in NEW YORK! Have fun with your outfits!

  • Kristina Cassandra

    Katie Holmes is the true winner in this post!

    Great post, literally brightened up my day. Michelle Violi Harper looks like Lady Gaga’s uptight older sister. Naomi Campbell is representing for the over 40 crowd. Also Amanda, you forgot to include the fab Karolina Kurkova’s name in the caption.
