Remember the humble Rockstud? It hasn't really gone anywhere, but it's been a spell since we've seen celebs demonstrate the kind of affection for Valentino's signature stud that we saw them demonstrate last week. The popular Valentino My Rockstud Tote seemed like an indication that the brand was moving in a more minimal direction, possibly towards a less Rockstudded future, but we doubt that's happening any time soon. In fact, Valentino may be trying to reinvent the Rockstud. There are gold Rockstuds, for example, and Rockstud mini bags so encrusted with crystals that you don't even really notice the studs.
Chanel Mini Bag
Here's Ashley Benson, out and about in LA with someone our photo service labeled as a "male companion" (not pictured here) and her Chanel Mini Bag. Chanel hasn't been as steadfastly invested the micro bag trend as some of its peers, but this one's pretty tiny.

Dakota Fanning stopped to sign some autographs for fans after a long flight back to LAX from PFW. She's carrying a Valentino Rolling Rockstud Trapeze Tote. As you can see, the "Rolling Rockstud" can be easily differentiated from the regular Rockstud because of the alternating turquoise stones. It's far easier than differentiating Dakota Fanning from Elle Fanning, that's for sure.
Céline Trio Bag
Hermès Kelly Bag
Stop everything you're doing and look at this photo of Janet Jackson, hurrying through LAX with her husband (not pictured here) and her Hermès Kelly Bag. Hermès, Schermès--let's talk about that red hair. It goes on forever.
Loewe Amazona Bag
$1,950 via Nordstrom
LAX had an exceptional amount of celebrity traffic last week (and for LAX, that's really saying something); here's January Jones making her way through the paparazzi fracas with her dainty, top-handled, pebbled leather Loewe Amazona Bag.
Valentino B-Rockstud Crystal Flap Bag

Speaking of dainty: Jennifer Lopez recently walked the red carpet at The Perfect Match premiere in LA with this teensy, gorgeous Valentino clutch. (The bag comes with a chain, but it's hidden here.)
Here's Nicky Hilton, rocking a true vintage Nicky Hilton look here. Those little lace minis give me crazy 2005 flashbacks. Nicky was recently spotted grabbing a coffee in Manhattan while wearing a jacket with shoulder pads and carrying a Birkin. This is the 30cm size.
