Kesha was recently spotted at LAX looking rather well put together for someone whose name used to include a dollar sign. She’s carrying a very sophisticated black Fendi 2Jours Bag, customized with her initials. You can grab one for yourself for $2,350 at Nordstrom.
As an accessories brand, Tom Ford is still trying to get its sea legs. The line of bags and shoes is successful, but Ford has yet to have the kind of breakthrough, blockbuster hit that would send the business into the stratosphere. Handbag design is notoriously difficult to master for brands that have always been known, first and foremost, for other things (just ask Christian Louboutin), and now Ford appears to be looking for his signature, both literally and figuratively.

Every bag lover knows the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram pattern, but the House of Louis Vuitton dates back to the mid-1850s and has a long line of heritage and craftsmanship.

(I like the idea of wearing silk shorts in broad daylight conceptually, but I’m not sure it’ll ever catch on.) Her bag is an adorable Givenchy Antigona Mini Bag with red trim, which is currently on sale for $1,596 at SSENSE.
Bag: Alexander McQueen Heroine Shoulder Bag
Price: $2,085 via Net-a-Porter
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Although this design isn’t new, its feels fresh in this totally gorgeous shade of ultra-pale blush, with just enough black edgepaint to define its lines. I much prefer this version of the Heroine to the original tote – the closure is much more functional and intuitive on this shoulder bag.

Here’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, arriving at LAX looking as supermodel-perfect as she always does. Like most gorgeous celebs, Rosie spends an absurd amount of time navigating her way through throngs of paps and autograph-seekers in airports all over the world. Her bag du jour is in fact, a dark green Saint Laurent Sac du Jour.
