In some ways, celebrities live on a different planet than you and I, but in other ways, they’re not that different at all. Most famous people weren’t born famous (or rich), and if they became that way in adulthood, they probably still remember what it was like to be a normal.
You can mark every spring by one recurring fashion trend: the return of the mini bag. They’re back every year right around now, and this year, they seem to be more miniature than ever. (But, then again, I feel like I say that every year.) In addition to a fresh crop of mini bags, we also have a double dose of jet-setting Jennifer Lopez for you, plus an appearance by her eminence Judge Judy, whom we would include in many more celeb handbag roundups, if given the opportunity.
Do you ever sit back and think how lucky we are to have Jennifer Lopez? She sings, she dances, she acts, she shows up on near-constant red carpets looking incredible–what a bounty. Jennifer always has a bunch of projects in the works, which keeps a steady stream of paparazzi images coming, and lately, we’ve noticed even more than normal.
Remember the humble Rockstud? It hasn’t really gone anywhere, but it’s been a spell since we’ve seen celebs demonstrate the kind of affection for Valentino’s signature stud that we saw them demonstrate last week. The popular Valentino My Rockstud Tote seemed like an indication that the brand was moving in a more minimal direction, possibly towards a less Rockstudded future, but we doubt that’s happening any time soon.
Celebs are over the moon for totes, and they’re carrying everything from ye olde favorites (I mean the Céline Luggage Tote, of course), to gargantuan Hermès bags that threaten to engulf their carriers, to svelte Michael Kors totes that are actually a riff on a Michael Kors style that was immensely popular circa 2014.
The Hiltons and Hadids of the world stepped out in a some noteworthy new designer boots this week, and we think they’ll pique your interest. It is winter, after all, even in Los Angeles. (Sort of.
When I sat down to compile the photos for this post, I didn’t know that it was going to be about Chanel. As I started looking through our photo agency’s recent archives, though, it became clear that it had to be; no other brand exerts the kind of dominance among high-profile women’s handbag collections that Chanel does.
Hermès has a solid handle on celeb hearts this week, as a ton of celebs pulled out their best and most exotic Birkins and Kellys. (Ostrich, anyone?) An adorable baby heiress also makes an appearance (sans baby Hermès handbag), someone got glitter-bombed at LAX and Taylor Swift has a new bag!
