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.

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 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.
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.
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.
