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.

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.
A few months ago, Dior announced that Rihanna would be the brand’s newest face, and the brand’s first black campaign star of all time. Yesterday, the first images from the pop superstar’s campaign hit the Internet, and they’re gorgeous.
Rihanna’s campaign is for the new Christian Dior Diorama Bag, and the images, shot by Steven Klein, are centered around a secret garden theme.
Before we get started, I should admit something: Rihanna is probably my favorite famous person in the world. She’s gorgeous, she’s talented and she always looks like she’s having a lot of fun, in spite of the constraints of fame. She also has a body that can only be described as “bangin'” and employs it to great effect when it comes to fashion; she’ll try anything, combine anything and then be on to the next look before you can digest what just happened.
This is not one of those celeb bag roundups where everyone looks totally relatable and down-to-earth, and half the celebs we feature are just grabbing some fro-yo in West Hollywood. This is one of those celeb bag round-ups where (almost) everyone brought their A-game, right along with their A-game handbags.
This morning marks the opening of another season of shows at New York Fashion Week, and when it’s over, we’ll be moving straight on to the collections in London, Milan and Paris. Although it’s exciting to see new lines debut and new trends take shape, on of our favorite parts of Fashion Week is the opportunity to see how show attendees, both famous and not-so-famous, express their own personal style on the way to and from shows.
Some weeks, the universe sends us nothing but Real Housewives carrying the same (beautiful, but the same) Chanel Flap Bags or Hermès Birkins we see all the time. We don’t mind those weeks (and we never tire of seeing those bags), but occasionally, the stars are aligned just so and some of our favorite actresses and singers will come out of hiding, carrying some handbags we don’t see every day.
Here’s Rihanna, heading to dinner at Nobu in Tribeca on a particularly blustery night in NYC. She’s carrying the Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted Box Monogram Bag, which retails for $4,400 in select Vuitton stores as part of the brand’s “Celebrating Monogram” collaboration with six fashion and design luminaries.
