It’s always serendipitous when we can combine our celebrity handbag roundups with a nice piece of hot celebrity gossip. Celebs love to sync pap-friendly public outings with their good news, and they won’t just wear or carrying any old thing for the occasion. This week’s (allegedly) newly engaged celeb chose a little blue Fendi for her special debut, which seems most appropriate. This roundup also features appearances by Ashley Graham, Jennifer Hudson (Jennifer, where have you been?) and numerous other “hotsie-totsies,” as your grandpa would call them. We think their handbag selections are pretty attractive, too.

Alessandra Ambrosio
Chloé Drew Bag
$2,050 via Nordstrom

We’ll start off with Alessandra Ambrosio, shopping at Isabel Marant in LA with her textured brown leather Chloé Drew Bag. We’ve caught a lot of celebs coming or going from Isabel Marant lately, and we’re curious to know what the big draw is. (We have to assume it’s the clothes, because this is a weird time of year to stock up on her popular boot styles. Unless they’re on sale, of course.)


Ashley Graham
Céline Luggage Tote

Here’s model Ashley Graham, out and about in NYC with a lovely blue micro version of the Céline Luggage Tote, which is becoming increasingly popular with celebs these days. As you can see, the micro is notably bigger than the Nano, but obviously a fair bit shorter than the regular Mini Luggage Tote.


Elle MacPherson
Bottega Veneta Snakeskin Clutch
Shop Bottega Veneta via Neiman Marcus

Paps recently caught up with a nonplussed Elle MacPherson right before she ducked into this building in NYC. Her shiny blue Bottega Veneta Snakeskin Clutch is sadly no longer available in stores.


Gabrielle Union
Marc Jacobs Gotham Satchel
$550 via Nordstrom

Gabrielle Union was recently spotted doing a little shopping in Beverly Hills with her “collaged” version of the Marc Jacobs Gotham Satchel. The designer now offers several different handbag styles with similar versions of this print.


Jennifer Hudson
ZAC Zac Posen Eartha Satchel
$525 via Shopbop

It’s been a spell since we’ve seen Jennifer Hudson, but here she is arriving at CBS This Morning to promote her new HBO movie Confirmation. She’s carrying a pristine white ZAC Zac Posen Eartha Satchel, which has become something of a sleeper handbag hit over the last few years.


Katie Couric
Bottega Veneta Cabat Tote
Shop Bottega Veneta via Neiman Marcus

Here’s Katie Couric, heading in to get her hair and make-up done for an appearance on Kimmel. She’s carrying a burgundy intrecciato Bottega Veneta tote.


Lindsay Lohan
Fendi Mini By The Way Bag
$1,450 via Nordstrom

Have you heard the news? Lindsay Lohan is allegedly engaged to some hot young rich Russian oligarch. (Okay, fine, he may not be an oligarch just yet, but he is very rich.) They haven’t announced it officially yet, but look at that rock on her ring finger. Lindsay found an opportunity to flash it at the paps while doing a little shopping in Soho. She’s carrying a pale blue Fendi Mini By The Way Bag that I greatly prefer to previous versions.


Nastia Liukin
Les Petits Joueurs Alex Eyes Bag
$945 via Neiman Marcus

Speaking of rich Russians, here’s Olympic gymnast/Russian celeb Nastia Liukin, heading into the AOL offices with a cute new bag from Les Petits Joueurs. It’s literally a black tie bag for daytime.
