The powers of the paparazzi are myriad. They have a strange ability to transform a "normal" person into an instant celebrity via their unwanted attention. (It's happening again this week to the sister of someone you already know and love.) They can always recognize Lady Gaga in all of her various disguises. They have a weird knack for identifying international celebs who aren't especially well known in the US yet. Fortunately, celebs of all stripes and nationalities have access to great designer handbags.
Louis Vuitton Monogram Dora Satchel
$3,150 via Louis Vuitton
Swedish actress Alicia Vikander was recently spotted hailing a cab in NYC. She's carrying a Louis Vuitton satchel with ruby red trim that perfectly matches her skirt. Well played, Alicia.
Prada Galleria Tote
$2,500 via Bergdorf Goodman
And here's Selena Gomez, leaving dinner at Locanda Verde in NYC (where she also had lunch earlier in the day) with one of her own preferred designer bags, a Prada tote.
Tom Ford Jennifer Large Tote
$1,990 via Neiman Marcus
Jennifer Aniston looks pretty pleased with herself as she exits her NYC hotel, flashing her namesake Tom Ford bag at the paps. It occurs to me that we almost never see Jen on our photo service, so her paparazzi evasion game must be pretty strong.
Givenchy Pandora Bag
$2,090 via Neiman Marcus
Kate Beckinsale never leaves home without pinpoint perfect hair and make-up. Here she is JFK, looking immaculate, per usual, and carrying a washed sheepskin leather Givenchy Pandora. Please tone it down, Kate, you're setting the bar far too high for the rest of us.
Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Mirada Bag
Rihanna has endless tricks up her sleeve; today, it's a Louis Vuitton bag that's no longer made.
Kenzo Kalifornia Mini Shoulder Bag
$295 via farfetch.com
Kate Mara keeps popping up on her radar this week with some especially choice (and comparatively affordable) little handbags. Here she is leaving a hair salon in Beverly Hills with a mini from Kenzo.
Balenciaga Spray Bag
Shop Balenciaga via Net-a-Porter
Here's an almost unrecognizable Lady Gaga, flitting through JFK with one of Balenciaga's runway bags from Fall 2015. This bag is definitely not available to plebians like us just yet.
Chloe Drew Bag
$1,850 via Net-a-Porter
Here's Lorde, returning home from a night out with Jennifer Lawrence (!!!) in NYC. Lorde is pretty partial to Chloe bags, and the Drew has really been gaining some steam with celebs in the last couple weeks.
Moschino Cup Purse
Shop Moschino via MATCHESFASHION.COM
No, you didn't read that wrong, this is Amal's sister, "out and about" in NYC with a little branded Moschino bag. The paparazzi have started following Tala around now that they've realized that the beauty and style genes run pretty strong in the Alamuddin family.
