Here’s a polished Selena Gomez, arriving at KISS 100 studios in London to promote her new album and tour, carrying a MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Bag. This black and white version of this Selma sold out quickly, but a chic black and grey colorway is still available for $358 at Neiman Marcus. Fortunately for all of us, you don’t have to do double duty as a pop star and actress to add the Selma to your stash.

The Selma bags have been especially popular with celebs over the last few months, we’ve seen a wide variety of starlets carrying the Selma in Tote, Satchel, and Messenger form. Much earlier in the year, we declared the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma “the best thing going under $400″, and so many months later, there isn’t a single designer bag that can challenge its title.

Last time we checked in with #WhatsInYourKors, we were partying in Ibiza with the perfect little festive bag and accessories. Today, we’re still packing for a Mediterranean destination, but the purpose is a little different. Instead of late-night clubbing, our MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Tote is packed up for some time in Italy at Milan Fashion Week.

Milan always brings with it the type of confident, in-your-face style that makes a red studded bag absolutely necessary, and some leopard calf hair accessories and bold jewelry will serve you well. Because of the fast-paced nature of Fashion Week, though, the pieces have to be functional and easy to wear; luckily, that’s what Michael Kors is all about.

Check out the contents of our Milan Fashion Week bag below, and as always, show us the contents of your own Kors on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #WhatsInYourKors!

We’re getting toward the end of July, and that means one thing: one more solid month to make the most of getaway season and make some summertime memories with your best friends. Our previous adventure with Michael Kors was close to home, but to cap off the season, we’ve got our eyes (and our Michael Kors bags) trained to Ibiza, the party capital of the world. For our latest edition of #WhatsInYourKors, we’ve embodied the jet-set spirit with a party bag full of essentials.

A clutch is great and all, but for a serious party like those that you’ll encounter on Ibiza, you’re going to want something with a strap so that you can dance the night away. That’s why we chose the MICHAEL Michael Kors Sloan Quilted Shoulder Bag, which strikes the perfect balance between glamour and function. To the look we’ve added a slick pair of gunmetal-toned Michael Kors aviators, which you’ll need if the sun’s coming up when you’re leaving the club, plus a little bit of bling, starting with a signature Michael Kors watch. Check out our bag full of party pieces, plus don’t forget to tweet and Instagram your own night-out essentials using our hashtag: #WhatsInYourKors. We can’t wait to see.

The Michael Kors Miranda Tote has been a particular fave with celebs this year – Megs first noticed this MK bag was gaining steam back in March, and we’ve seen select celebs like Heidi Klum and Jessica Alba put their Mirandas in permanent rotation since then. Here’s Jessica headed to her office in Santa Monica, carrying a very striking black and white Michael Kors Miranda Tote with quilted flared gussets. There’s still plenty of time to capitalize on this MK trend – you can purchase an extremely chic, all-black Miranda for $1,195 at Michael Kors.

Of course, if the Miranda is a little out of your budget, you’d be wise to check out the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Satchel, another bag that’s much beloved by celebs this summer. It can be had for a mere $358 at Nordstrom. Need even more celeb handbag inspiration? Allow us to give you the full tour of Jessica Alba’s extensive designer handbag collection via “The Many Bags of Jessica Alba.”

Here’s the effortlessly beautiful Alessandra Ambrosio, playing the part of supermodel mommy in LA, carrying a MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Messenger in neon yellow. We featured fellow supermodel mama Miranda Kerr with the exact same bag in our recent post “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr, Part 2″, and we’ve also spotted Twilight actress Ashley Greene carrying the tote version. You can get a more trend-proof black version of the Selma for $228 at Nordstrom. (I feel the need to reiterate that that was NOT a typo, the bag is, in all seriousness, $228.)

We’ve waxed on extensively about what a ridiculously good buy this bag is – less so in a neon yellow or pink shade, perhaps, but a Selma in a more neutral tone will certainly be in rotation for several seasons. It’s strangely disorienting to see so many celebs carrying a bag that even a humble freelance writer such as myself could actually afford. All I need now is a pair of DIY Daisy Dukes and a toddler in a fedora!

Heidi Klum was recently spotted carrying a Michael Kors Miranda Bag while out with her bodyguard/boyfriend Martin Kristen in NYC. Here they are coming out of the Louis Vuitton store in Soho, which now boasts a brand new Atelier. Her towering pumps are, of course, the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Pumps. The Miranda is an interesting bag – two top flaps fold over to form a solid rectangle shape, and everything stays secure with a sort of bolo-esque tie closure. It’s not super obvious here, but this bag also has the teensiest of flared gussets. You can pick it up for $1,195 at Neiman Marcus.

It’s not too terribly surprising that Heidi carries a good bit of Michael Kors, given the professional relationship they built over the course of 10 seasons together on Project Runway. In case you weren’t aware, Michael left the show at the end of 2012, and was replaced by Zac Posen for the January 2013 cycle of PR. Heidi is by all reports still playing host and judge, though there were a lot or rumors she wouldn’t return after accepting her gig on America’s Got Talent.

Now that summer is well underway, the next long weekend that we’re looking forward to is the Fourth of July. Whether it’s a picnic in the park or a full-on beach party that you’ll be attending, celebrating in style is always on our minds. In that spirit, we’ve teamed up with Michael Kors to show you what would be in the ideal July 4th weekend bag. We also want to hear about what you’ll be carrying (or wish you were carrying) for the impending holiday. Tell us: #WhatsInYourKors? Below, find out what’s in ours. (more…)

Here’s actress Ashley Greene heading into STK Restaurant in West Hollywood with a MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Tote on her arm. In March, Amanda called the Selma “the best thing going under $400″ in her extensive bag review, and I tend to agree. With its sleek, classic shape and subtle flared gussets, this style is sure to weather several seasons. It retails for a mere $358 at Neiman Marcus.

As much as I love looking at Givenchy, Celine, Tom Ford, and the like, it’s always slightly more interesting for me to see what the celebs who aren’t exactly A-lister millionaires are carrying. Ashley Greene might be well on her way with all that fat Twilight bank, but she’s not quite a household name yet (unless your home is filled with Twilight-loving teens) and her bag choices always seem like infinitely reasonable purchases for someone who is still a baby, by Hollywood standards.

I don’t think a single person who grew up in my hometown made it out without tennis lessons. In suburban Atlanta, tennis is a way of life; it stays warm enough to play for nine months out of the year (at least), and the sprawling, recently developed suburbs feature tennis courts in literally every neighborhood. I learned to play tennis at approximately the same age that I learned how to swim, and in my part of town, it was a skill seen as just as essential for survival. I know so many friends’ moms who would have died over the MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Tennis Racket Covers. (more…)

If you’ve tried to track down a MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Satchel in the past few months, then you already know that the bag is one of Kors’ biggest bag hits ever – the best colors vanished from stores almost immediately, and pretty soon, even neutrals were scarce. We’ve noticed new shipments of the tote, which we’ve loved from the outset, arriving in stores recently, so now’s a good time to start looking again if you’ve wanted one of these very well-priced bags. Another reason to start shopping? The bag now comes in colorblocked versions, both neon and trendy black-and-white. (more…)
