You can mark every spring by one recurring fashion trend: the return of the mini bag. They’re back every year right around now, and this year, they seem to be more miniature than ever. (But, then again, I feel like I say that every year.) In addition to a fresh crop of mini bags, we also have a double dose of jet-setting Jennifer Lopez for you, plus an appearance by her eminence Judge Judy, whom we would include in many more celeb handbag roundups, if given the opportunity.

Emmy Rossum
Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Mini Bag
$1,450 via Nordstrom

Emmy Rossum is a big fan of little Louboutin bags and clutches (as evidenced in The Many Bags of Emmy Rossum). Here she is attending the Target x Marimekko collab launch at the Highline in NYC with one of her favorite styles, the Sweet Charity.


Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Tom Ford Tassel Bucket Bag
$2,190 via Neiman Marcus

Jenna Dewan-Tatum was spotted shopping in Beverly Hills with a grey leather Tom Ford Tassel Bucket Bag, which seems to be one of the last designer bucket bags standing after their multi-year run.


Jennifer Lopez
Chanel Python Classic Flap Bag

J.Lo recently enjoyed a night out in London and was snapped by paps arriving back at her hotel with her shiny Chanel Python Classic Flap Bag. I haven’t seen Casper Smart in any of these paparazzi photos in quite some time, so maybe they’re on the outs again?


Jennifer Lopez
Christian Louboutin Paloma Tote
$2,490 via Neiman Marcus

Here’s J.Lo again, pictured here at LAX a few days earlier (en route to London, of course). She’s carrying a nice, neutral leather Louboutin tote that appears to have its own fur shawl. Please, please, please don’t get any ideas, Fendi.


Judge Judy

Here’s Judge Judy, leaving Craig’s in LA with what we have to assume is a Chanel bag. We can’t verify that 100%, but let’s be real, we just wanted to include Judge Judy, because we love Judge Judy. And why shouldn’t we?


Kendall Jenner
Givenchy Micro Lucrezia Bag
$1,295 via FWRD

Kendall Jenner was recently spotted leaving The Nice Guy with her BFF Gigi Hadid. She’s carrying a dainty pink Givenchy mini. Do you remember when you were young and saucy and un-self conscious enough to wear things like vintage nighties to the club? I do.


Lucy Hale
Salvatore Ferragamo Mini Sofia Bag
$1,290 via

Here’s Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale at the ABC upfronts in NYC. She’s carrying one of the most miniature designer minis I have ever seen. Just look at the profile on this little Salvatore Ferragamo. It will comfortably fit at least three credit cards and maybe the smartphone Lucy is holding, but probably not.


Padma Lakshmi
Hermès Birkin

Finally, we have Padma Lakshmi, heading home in Soho with one of her many Birkins. Padma clearly sees what you are doing, and she is extremely wary of your intentions.

Your comments about Kendall Jenner… true.

Padma looking odd in the face. Is it just me?

Kendull is clothing shopping from the 90’small reject bin. Neck choker check, slip dress over a plain white tee check, looking like I just rolled out of bed check.
