Celebrity-Bags-May-19

I look at celeb pics year-round, so I know that when celebrities bust out the floppy spring hats and the floral prints, celebrity beach pics are never far behind. (Also, I know this because I am a human being, and not just because I am some unofficial celebrity behavior and tracking expert.

Celebrity-Handbags-April-2

If only up-and-coming “it” bags were this easy to spot every week. Two of your favorite A-listers carried the same new bag by Roger Vivier over the course of the last few days (in slightly different variations), and I expect this style will continue to gain steam in the coming weeks.

Celebrity-Handbags-March-24

Celebrities seem to have come to a consensus: When life hands you lemons, carry Chanel. Or Hermès. Basically, just never stop carrying a fancy handbag, and people will never question you or your life choices. You can dye your hair green.

Celebrity-Bags-March-10

Celebrities were a little standoffish with paps this week, even the ones whose continued relevancy rests in the hands of the paparazzi almost entirely. But hey, the sun is finally peeking out in NYC, and Paris Fashion Week is still going on in Paris, so I don’t begrudge them if they feel they have better things to do than vogue for enthusiastic street photogs the world over.

Celebrity-Designer-Bags-February-19

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. In related news, the Givenchy Mini Pandora has emerged as this week’s “bag for all seasons.”

Doing these celeb round-ups has really given me a more comprehensive idea of what celebs are carrying on any given week. (Amanda has always been the one tasked with wading through piles of celeb photos to make these selections, bless her.) It means I see almost 20 different bag selections every week instead of just five, which leads me to observations, like the fact that brands like Proenza Schouler and Chloé are more popular right now than you might suspect.

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.
