Plus: A Beyoncé mystery bag!
This week in celebrity news: everyone is aging! But unlike the rest of us, they're doing it with birthday parties that have event carpets and a dozen corporate sponsors, alongside a hundred of their celebrity BFFs (and acquaintances) in attendance. All of that frankly sounds exhausting, but I am grateful for the excess of great designer bags these events have brought us this week. Especially since birthday celebrations propelled Beyoncé onto our bag radar once more.
Queen Bey carried this purple python mystery BAG while out on the town with Jay-Z for his 48th birthday celebration. During this particular outing, they were photographed riding an elevator together, and the press had a duck. True story.
Here's Emily Ratajkowski, heading into a Lakers game with a bright yellow bag from The Kooples that was both designed by her and named after her. You can get an up-close look at this bag in Kaitlin's hands-on review. Shop The Kooples Emily Bag via The Kooples ($445)
Jessica Alba carried this cute red Chanel WOC while out with her husband in Venice, CA. I had completely forgotten she was pregnant. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Note to self: power suits pair well with the Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag. Kelly Osbourne brought hers along to celebrate the X Factor season finale at China Tang in London with her mom and Nicole Scherzinger. Shop the Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag via Louis Vuitton ($3,850)
Real Housewife Kyle Richards brought her Hermès Kelly Bag to a dinner date at Craig's with a friend. I haven't given a lot of though to velvet dusters before today, but now I'm wondering if I have the je ne sais quois required to pull one off.
Here's Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, leaving the 2017 British Fashion Awards in London with a newly revived Coach Mailbox Bag, which Coach reintroduced on their Spring 2018 runway. Shop Coach Bags via Coach
Mary J. Blige
Mary J. Blige carried this colorful Valentino Loveblade Bag to DJ Khaled's Diddy-hosted 42nd birthday party. The event was held at a private mansion in Beverly Hills, naturally. Shop the Valentino Loveblade Bag via mytheresa.com ($2,551)
Here's a parting shot of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, being better than you at everything outside of LAX. The Saint Laurent Sac de Jour is her default bag, but she does an excellent job of making it look fresh every time. Shop the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag via Nordstrom ($3,250)
