Designers just keep turning out consumer favorites in alligator and crocodile, and wealthy shoppers looking to having the newest and most exclusive pieces just keep snapping them up.

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.
It’s been clear from the jump that affordable bags were never going to be The Row’s stock-in-trade. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have built an upstart powerhouse by using the finest materials available to reinvent basics ranging from black blazers to cable-knit sweaters, and the duo’s $34,000 alligator backpack launched a trend almost single-handedly.
