Celebrity-Style-January-20

Fair warning: this edition of our celeb bag round-ups is a solid 50% Chanel, Céline and Hermès. This intel probably elicited one of two responses: squeals of excitement or groans of fatigue. If you’re in the latter camp: I sympathize, but our celeb friends clearly do not.

Celebrity-Christmas-Bags-2014

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.

Hilary Duff Chanel Boy Bag

Hilary Duff was recently spotted (looking pretty amazing) on the set of her forthcoming TV series Younger, carrying a beautiful metallic Chanel Boy Bag from her own collection. Younger is a “working mom in the city”-style sitcom that will make its debut on the TV Land channel in early 2015.

Celebrities and Chanel Bags

Around the PurseBlog offices, we spend an inordinate amount of time poring over photos of celebs and their favorite handbags, and over time, one thing has become apparent: famous people really, really love Chanel bags. Non-famous people do too, of course, but those photos are harder to come by.

Hilary Duff Louis Vuitton Empreinte Speedy Goyard St. Louis Tote

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving a fitness studio in West Hollywood, carrying a Louis Vuitton Speedy Empreinte 25 Bandoulière Bag and a Goyard St. Louis Tote. Strangely enough, we’ve seen Hilary carry both of these bags before, which is a definite first/sign of the end times.

Hilary Duff Chanel Boy Bag

Ok, so maybe this is not the most pressing breaking news ever, but we follow Hilary’s bag collection pretty closely and immediately knew that this Chanel bag was a brand new addition to her collection. Here’s handbag collector supreme Hilary Duff, walking down the middle of the street in West Hollywood, wearing overalls and carrying a new, cherry red Chanel Boy Bag.

Here’s an enthusiastic Hilary Duff, hopping into a Porsche with her Chanel Boy Bag after running a few errands in West Hollywood. We saw Hilary carrying this same bag at Coachella last month. (Top places I would not take my Chanel bag: 1.

Coachella 2014 Handbags

Coachella is a unique event. Not only is it the only rich-hippie desert concert weekend that I know of, but it’s a rare opportunity to spot celebrities mingling among mere mortals with relatively little security or separation. That also means it’s an opportunity for handbag-spotting, and although some celebs opt to leave their expensive accessories at home, plenty of others carry whatever handbags they’d use to go out to dinner back in Beverly Hills.

Hilary Duff Givenchy Antigona Celine Luggage Tote

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving the gym in West Hollywood (in a pair of heels, no less!), clearly showered, blow-dried and ready to take on her post-workout day. She’s carrying both a Celine Luggage Tote and a Givenchy Antigona Bag – one bag for pre-gym, one bag for post-gym, I suppose?

The Many Bags of Hilary Duff

Without a doubt, one of the things I was most surprised by in 2013 was how much you guys loved The Many Bags of Hilary Duff – it was one of our most popular posts of the year! I was a little bit too old for Lizzie MacGuire, so I never developed much of a love for the Duffster, but I’m clearly in the minority.
