Celebrity-Handbags-March-19

By “yesteryear”, I mean, of course, 2014. Two of 2015’s hottest new designer bags continued to gain steam this week (not going to name names; all will be revealed within), and a few of our faves from last year appeared on the arm/general vicinity of Karlie Kloss, who made it home from Paris Fashion Week.

Celebrity-Designer-Handbags-February-26

London Fashion Week is upon us, and this week it happened to overlap with the Oscars, which meant that LFW was an A-list actor-free zone during the first few days. London’s best “it” girls, pop singers, and modeling legends still turned out in force, of course.

New-York-Fashion-Week-Fall-2015-Celebrity-Handbags

New York Fashion Week has (almost) come to another close, and while we’ve got more coverage of the bags we saw on the runways on the way, we first wanted to look back at the bags that paparazzi captured outside the shows–those on the arms of the week’s most famous attendees.

The Many Bags of Supermodels

[Editor’s Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of the holidays. We’ll return on Monday, but in the meantime, we’ll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.

Best-Celebrity-Handbags-2014

First things first: this list isn’t quite as comprehensive as most year-end lists you’ll read this week, because it primarily deals with handbags we saw celebs carry after June. To get a better feel for ALL the year’s best bag moments, you’ll also want to consult “The Best Celebrity Bag Looks of Summer 2014″ as well.

Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss go shopping and out to eat at ABC Carpet and Sephora in NYC.

If you woke up today wondering if Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss are still lady besties, the answer is an enthusiastic “YES.” Here are Taylor and Karlie, leaving the Sephora in the Meatpacking District of NYC together. The girls had a cute little lunch date on Wednesday, which included a Sephora pop-in and a leisurely lunch at ABC Kitchen.

Karlie Kloss Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag

Here’s Karlie Kloss, world’s most relatable, affable, low-key supermodel, ambling around NYC with a massive Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag. This bag, as you might imagine, is the largest version of the popular Chanel style, and we rarely see it “in the wild,” though it does make a few appearances in “100 Celebs and Their Favorite Chanel Bags”.

Karlie Kloss Jason Wu Jourdan Tote

Here’s supermodel Karlie Kloss, running errands in NYC and doing a quick pop-in at Taylor Swift’s Tribeca apartment, all while carrying a black Jason Wu Jourdan Tote. Karlie is among Wu’s favorite models, so it’s no surprise to see her toting one of the designer’s most popular bags.

Here are adorable, color-matching BFFs Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss, leaving NYC brunch favorite Sarabeth’s in Tribeca. Both ladies are carrying black Dolce & Gabbana bags. Taylor’s is the Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag, while Karlie has the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag (formerly known as the Miss Sicily, but apparently Dolce is looking to simplify things).

Celebrities Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag

A quick look at the comments on any of our celebrity posts make at least one thing clear: you guys are pretty savvy to the not-so-transparent ways that brands try to market things to you via their famous friends. And while no celebrity gets everything for free (seriously, we see most of them shopping all the time), the art of the celebrity placement, as it’s called, is alive and well.
