But question everything.
We rarely feature bags that are questionably authentic, but we're a bit stumped by our first celeb bag pick. (If you've laid eyes on more vintage Hermès than most, please feel free to weigh in.) Celebs can usually be counted upon to carry the real deal (except when they freely and openly admit that they don't), but this bag-carrying celeb isn't one of our usuals. It's certainly not unusual to be fooled by a good fake in the secondhand marketplace, in fact, it's not even ridiculous to love a good fake for being exactly what it is. Those are all authentic emotions. But is this bag authentic though?
Jemima Kirke was spotted heading into the AOL Build Series with a black, vintage Hermès Kelly bag. Something about the croc gives us pause though. The scales in the middle of the bag's front panel look a little big? Real or nah?
Here's Jennifer Lopez, carrying one of her Christian Louboutin Paloma Bags around NYC. J-Lo's love for this style goes way back. Shop the Christian Louboutin Paloma Bag via Neiman Marcus ($2,290)
Here's Nicole Murphy, leaving a club in West Hollywood with a black Louis Vuitton Cluny Bag. Nicole Murphy has an excellent bag collection; perhaps it's time we devoted more blog space to it. Shop the Louis Vuitton Cluny Bag via Louis Vuitton ($3,000)
It's been a spell since we touched base with the Ecclestones (so long I was worried they'd all become financially insolvent), but apparently, Petra got divorced earlier this year. She was recently seen carrying this Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag to a dinner date at Catch with her new boyfriend. Shop the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag via Louis Vuitton ($5,500)
Here's Priyanka Chopra, flaunting a purple The Row Ascot Bag while doing even more press in NYC for the third season of Quantico. Sadly, her show just got the axe from ABC this week. Shop The Row Ascot Bag via Barneys ($990)
Finally, we have Reese Witherspoon, heading into her office in LA with a Valentino Candystud Bag that bears her name in glittering studs, just as all bags should. Shop the Valentino Candystud Bag via Net-a-Porter ($2,875)
