Celebrity-Designer-Handbags-March-26

The stars aren’t exactly blowing me away with their bag choices this week, but there are still a few celeb picks worth peeping at in this bag roundup, including a brand new Chanel bag that we’ve only seen on the arm of a celeb once before.

Celebrity-Handbags-March-5

Fame requires a lot of legwork. Sure, once you’ve made it, someone will usually send a car to ferry you from place to place, but there’s still a fair bit of hoofing involved if you want to stay relevant. That’s why so many of the snapshots we feature are of celebrities dashing through airports, in and out of studios and around throngs of fans.

Celebrity-Bag-Picks-February-17

It’s that time of year again, friends. The new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is out, and that means it’s an especially busy time for the types of supermodels you see almost exclusively in SI and the Victoria’s Secret runway show. They’re out in droves this week, and their bag picks are superb.

Celebrity Bags of the Week November 18

You love celebs. You really love round-ups. So now, in lieu of our usual daily celeb features, we’ll be presenting our readers with a twice-weekly bag-carrying celeb smorgasbord. There’s something for everyone, so if you suffer from Kardashian fatigue, or Real Housewife fatigue, or Birkin fatigue (highly scientific studies show that they are all irrevocably linked), there are plenty of other attractive celebs carrying gorgeous designer bags upon which to rest your gaze.

Nicky Hilton Chanel Tweed Boy Bag

Nicky Hilton recently attended the launch party for her new fashion book, 365 Style, with a Chanel Tweed Boy Bag that we suspect might be a brand new addition to her collection. The shindig took place at her aunt Kyle’s boutique in Beverly Hills, and Nicky’s sister Paris was in attendance, as were cast members from both Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, naturally.

NationalHandbagDay Instagrams

National Handbag Day came and went in what felt like a blink of an eye. With thousands of handbag tweets and close to 6,000 Instagrams showing off your bags, it’s clear all of you were just as excited about the holiday as we were.

Nicky Hilton Chanel Kelly Bag

Here’s heiress Nicky Hilton, out and about in NYC, carrying yet another classic Chanel bag. This one is the Chanel Kelly Bag, and yes, it has a similar top handle structure to the Hermès bag of the same name. Both bags are named in honor of the late, great Grace Kelly, of course.

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.

Nicky Hilton Louis Vuitton Trompe L'oeil Trocadero Bag

Here’s Nicky Hilton, headed to lunch at The Smile in downtown Manhattan, carrying a Louis Vuitton Trompe L’oeil Trocadero Bag, which, according to our research, seems to date all the way back to Fall 2006. I’d like to think she pulled this one out of the archives just for us.

The Many Bags of Nicky Hilton Part 2

When I assembled the first edition of Nicky Hilton’s Many Bags series, it was the largest collection we had profiled to date. In the little over a year since then, it’s been eclipsed in size by a couple of other stars, but Nicky’s collection is still among my favorites because she’s so clearly One Of Us: a woman who looks to her handbags to pull our outfits together, whether she’s attending a formal event or just walking to her local bodega.
