Celebirty-Bag-Picks-Summer-2015

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. In a bizarre and disorienting twist, this week’s most boring bag pick actually came from Rihanna , of all people, but only because she’s been carrying her Dior Diorama bags for months now, as if it were her job.

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). Regular celeb endorsement is a crucial part of that business model, and Givenchy has absolutely no problems in that department.

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.

Cannes is over, the Met Ball is a distant memory and even the Tonys are done, so now our celeb round-ups mainly consist of stars going about their daily celeb lives. Our first roundup this week just happens to be roughly 90% “celebs I would like to party with.” (Not so fast, Lily Collins.

Dear Mr. Joel Silver,

I would like to humbly request an invite to your 2016 Memorial Day Pool Party. I know I’m making this request a full year in advance, but I’m allowing you plenty of time to get your ridiculously impressive, A-lister guest list completely nailed down before you start letting in randos like me.

The perks of mega-celebrity are too numerous to list; you can get into any restaurant you want without a reservation, boxes of free stuff arrive at your door every day, you’ve got enough money that you could quit on the spot and never work again.

Celebrity-Handbags-May-26

Every few weeks, the celeb bag trend cycle resets itself, and everyone starts falling back on classic handbags from Hermès, Prada and the like. The hot new bags are still represented here (hello, Chloé Faye!), as are some increasingly popular designer clutch picks for the red carpet, but the big name brands definitely have the majority in this week’s first celebrity bag roundup.
