Khloe Kardashian was recently spotted shuffling off to the gym with an overstuffed black Celine Phantom Luggage Tote. Celine is one of Khloe’s favorite brands, and she owns several impressive Celine bags, including both a buttery yellow Celine Phantom Luggage Tote and a brown suede one, as well as a python front-flap Celine Trapeze Bag.
Here’s Tamara Ecclestone and her husband Jay Rutland, making an impromptu visit to the beach (with a chummy paparazzo in tow) after having lunch at a beachside restaurant in Santa Monica. You can’t see him in this first photo, but the couple was also joined by their adorable poof of a teacup Pomeranian.
Here’s well-bundled supermodel Karolina Kurkova (how often does one get to utter those words, in that order?) carrying a glossy black croc-stamped Celine Phantom Luggage Tote while smart-phoning her way down Park Avenue with her husband Archie Drury in NYC. You know it’s unbearably frigid in New York when the supermodels aren’t showing any skin.
Kate Walsh was recently spotted shopping on Melrose in sunny Los Angeles, carrying a tan leather Celine Edge Bag. The appropriately named Edge has been around for a couple of seasons now, and although it’s not quite as visible as the Luggage Tote or Trapeze, it’s still a pretty neat little piece of handbag design.

Celine, meet Celine! Here’s Celine Dion, returning to her NYC hotel, clutching a Celine Classic Box Bag in leopard calf hair and black leather. This Celine-on-Celine action particularly tickles me because enterprising streetwear entrepreneurs have already emblazoned parody t-shirts with the Celine Dion name in the style of Celine’s brand logo.
