We’ve been treating you to celeb handbag roundups on a twice-weekly basis for some time now, but now we think it’s time to look at exactly what celebs are pairing with their handbags, specifically below their ankles.


New York Fashion Week is happening now (this seems like one of the longer Fashion Weeks, no?), and countless celebrities are being ferried through JFK on their way to front rows all over town. Givenchy and Hermès seem to be the celeb brands of choice for all NYFW travel-related purposes this week.


Celebrities are going minimal with the new Valentino My Rockstud Bag. The use of the word “Rockstud” in the name is a bit of a misnomer, because unlike everything else Rockstudded, this bag (rather surprisingly) has precious few actual studs.


Celebs were extremely busy this week, and if you don’t already feel like you’re wasting the precious remainder of summer in the office, you will after you finish reading this post. Rihanna launched a new fragrance, Kris Jenner just released her new cookbook (yes!) and everyone else was flocking to and from the VMAs or checking out exotic destinations like, uh, Toronto.


As we careen toward the end of summer, it’s once again time to gather ’round in our cut-off jean shorts and semi-sheer tanks and reexamine some of the best bag looks of the season. We had strong showings from brands like Givenchy, Fendi and Saint Laurent, which should come as a surprise to no one.


This week, celebs have surprised us with a few rather obscure handbag choices from lesser-known brands that are at the peripheries of our radar, as well as bags from the major brands that generally have a lower profile.


Rihanna is the new face of the Christian Dior Diorama Bag, so it’s not surprising that she’s been caught carrying a couple variations of the design over the past six months–it’s part of the job. Lately, though, she’s stuck on a particular light pink version, and it’s not particularly difficult to see why.


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).


I’m unsure of the exact math, but when you have two appearances by Beyoncé in any given blog post, your A-lister cred somehow more than doubles. Today, the handbag picks are especially high-end. There’s plenty of luxe celeb bags from Dior, Hermès and Céline to feast your eyes on this week, as well as some truly eyebrow-raising looks from a few of your favorite celebs.


Almost, but not quite. It was a busy weekend for celebs, what with Wimbledon, extremely high-profile weddings and a mass celeb exodus from Paris Couture Week. All that celeb news, combined with numerous celeb cheating/divorce rumors that we’re too classy to mention here will indubitably make for some premium tabloid reading tomorrow.
