LA readers, please dish! When you dine at Craig’s, are you guaranteed at least three celebrity sightings? Because the flood of paparazzi photos coming from outside of Craig’s would certainly suggest as much. Craig’s is obviously one of the preferred paparazzi hotspots for any celeb looking to generate a little free publicity, and it’s also one of our best resources for fabulous, full frontal celeb handbag pics.

Like all of the highest of hig-end handbag brands, Givenchy has a few signature styles that they can comfortably rely on to generate profits and perpetuate their brand’s legacy (though one of those styles just underwent a moderate revamp). Regular celeb endorsement is a crucial part of that business model, and Givenchy has absolutely no problems in that department.

Of all the celebrities that we’ve profiled over the years, Hilary Duff and her enormous collection have always felt the most relatable to me. Hilary’s personal style is relentlessly casual and often dotted with workout clothes, and she uses her bags to dress things up a little bit, just like lots of non-famous women.

Céline still holds a firm grip on the hearts of celebrities, and they have the bags to prove it. Céline is still much beloved by hordes of less famous bag lovers, of course, but we can’t all bankroll the Luggage Tote collection of our dreams.

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.

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.
