As you might have heard, Reed Krakoff is back, and celebs have rallied around him to help him launch his new collab with Kohl’s. Launching a collab with a mass-market retailer a year after you shutter your luxury brand is strange timing indeed, but if you liked Krakoff’s old line but balked at the prices, there’s a 100% chance you’ll want to see these ultra affordable REED x Kohl’s bags.

On the opposite end of the retail spectrum, supermodels are milling all around Los Angeles, flaunting their Louis Vuitton luggage and multi-thousand-dollar totes from The Row and Dior like it’s NBD. Meanwhile, other celebs (who are apparently “Game Changers”) recently took a break from changing the game to enjoy a nice luncheon, and they brought some nice, luncheon-appropriate handbags along.

Chanel Iman
Louis Vuitton Keepall
Louis Vuitton Pegase Suitcase

We’ve seen a lot of the newer styles from Louis Vuitton this week, but here’s Chanel Iman, ferrying her classic Louis Vuitton travel gear through LAX.


Ellen Pompeo
Gucci Dionysus Bag
$3,800 via Gucci

Paps recently caught up with Ellen Pompeo while she was heading into Glamour magazine’s “Game Changers” luncheon at Au Fudge (Jessica Biel‘s restaurant) in West Hollywood. Her bag is obviously Gucci, and I believe her outfit is Gucci as well.


Kate Upton
Christian Dior Lady Dior Crocodile Bag

Here’s Kate Upton leaving Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, where all my favorite celebrities hang out in perpetuity (in my mind, at least). She’s carrying a beautiful ivory croc Lady Dior that looks extremely smooth and buttery.


Kris Jenner
Hermès Crocodile Birkin

Speaking of croc, here’s Kris Jenner leaving LAX with BF Corey Gamble and one of her favorite Birkins: this bright blue croc edition, which we see her carrying frequently.


Lea Michele
M2Malletier Amor Fati Clutch
$1,171 via

Here’s Lea Michele, looking absurdly stunning as she walks into that same Glamour luncheon at Au Fudge. She’s carrying a tiny yet sinister-looking black leather M2Malletier clutch. (Has something this tiny ever looked so edgy?) It’s good to be a game changer.


Lily Aldridge
The Row Two for One 12th Suede Tote
$2,650 via Neiman Marcus

In other parts of town, celebrities who were not actively “changing the game” simply continued to go about their daily lives. Lily Aldridge was spotted leaving the gym in West Hollywood with a new Two for One 12th Suede Tote from The Row.


Maria Shriver
Prada Executive Tote
$2,230 via Bergdorf Goodman

Here’s Maria Shriver, exiting LAX with a light gray Prada Executive Tote. Don’t be deceived by the odd angle of this shot; Maria does have a right arm, we swear.


Solange Knowles
REED x Kohl’s Small RK40 Bag
$59 via Kohl’s

Solange Knowles (and several other celebs) attended the launch event for the REED x Kohl’s line last Thursday night in NYC. Solange is actually carrying a bag from the Kohl’s line, which retails for an extremely reasonable $59 (or $79, technically, but you know how Kohl’s pricing works). You can read more about the REED x Kohl’s collab here.

Trying to feel the love for Gucci Dionysus but it ain’t happenin’. Too awkward, too big.

Agreed. I keep trying to like that bag, but viscerally I’m just not drawn to it. I don’t mind monograms, unlike many other readers of this blog, but I just find that Gucci monogram in particular so unattractive. The suede Dionysus in black is the one I come closest to liking, but it would by no means top my wish list. There are aspects of the Dionysus that I like, but all thrown together they just make a strange-looking handbag to me.

A few non super models in this bunch (Kris Jenner) for one. It’s just another pic of her with another Birken.
Boring and tired.

Kris Jenner needs a new stylist. Stat.

Where are D, I and R on Kate Upton’s bag? Are they sort of behind an O leather plate?
