Celebs were extremely busy this week, and if you don’t already feel like you’re wasting the precious remainder of summer in the office, you will after you finish reading this post. Rihanna launched a new fragrance, Kris Jenner just released her new cookbook (yes!) and everyone else was flocking to and from the VMAs or checking out exotic destinations like, uh, Toronto.


Emmy Rossum has one of the most distinctive personal styles in Hollywood, mostly because it’s so not Hollywood. She dresses like millions of American women with more traditional, less trendy personal tastes aspire to dress in their everyday lives: classic, ladylike, slightly conservative.


As if on cue, celebs have suddenly swapped out the uber-distressed denim short shorts for linen blazers, summer dresses and all the elegant wardrobe staples we associate with summer. This celeb bag roundup also features a very visceral, summery mix of colors and textures: off-whites, light greys, linens and stitched leathers.


It’s July, and celebs are sporting some premium peak summer looks. It’s just teased hair, short shorts, mini-dresses and mesh for days. Summer celebs are probably my favorite celebs. Their bag selections are both brightly colored or neutral.


Celebrities blitzed through airports all over the world this week with designer bags that demanded our attention. Natural leathers, python and primary colors seem to be particularly in this week, and there are a few especially gorgeous classics in today’s roundup that you definitely shouldn’t miss.


Chloé‘s star is on the rise once again, thanks to recent hits like the Drew and the brand new Faye, which have both seen a lot of love from celebs in the month of April. In other celeb bag news, Kim Kardashian now owns her own customized Olympia Le-Tan book clutch.


Celebrity fashion continues to drive home the fact that LA and NYC are polar (vortex) opposites, but the bag picks of half-frozen supermodels and bare-armed actresses on both coasts are always choice, even when the weather is less than idyllic.


The celebiverse is much more nuanced than you’d imagine, if you only followed along with People and Us Weekly. There are entire solar systems worth of celebrity stylists and fashion bloggers, many of whom you’re probably unaware of and not following on Instagram.


We’ll begin the new year with some solid celeb bag picks from the final days of 2014. The days following Christmas are always a blur of shopping, leftovers, air travel and, usually, more shopping. LA-based celebs did their usual laps around LAX and Fred Segal, which is pretty much always a paparazzi sure-thing, NYC-based celebs did much of the same, and still other celebs popped up in idyllic holiday hang-outs like Aspen, as they so often do this time of year.

Celebrity Thanksgiving Bags

Celebs spent their Thanksgiving breaks the same way we all did: navigating crowded airports and juggling unwieldy luggage, all to break bread with the family members they love but see all too rarely. All but two of the celebs pictured below are outside or inside of airports, and because celebs fully expect to be photographed at airports, their bag choices are always truly top-notch.
