Celebs can’t always be on their A-game (unless they’re at a holiday fundraiser with an event carpet; it might be contractually required), but they can at least rely on their solid handbag picks to shine when the paps catch them on an off day. This week, celebs left home with some beautiful bags from Fendi, Bottega Veneta, Céline, Goyard and more. They may’ve regretted doing so, but we’ll never live to regret our compulsion to ogle any celeb’s opulent designer handbag at every opportunity.
Goyard Urbain Bag
Rapper A$AP Rocky was recently spotted leaving The Nice Guy in West Hollywood with a sleek and impressive Goyard man bag. This is a man who clearly has a deep appreciation for velvet. (It’s not just for the holidays. Ok, it is, but I really wish it weren’t.)
Givenchy Magnolia Backpack

Meanwhile, Behati Prinsloo fielded close encounters of the paparazzi kind at LAX while carrying a beautiful Givenchy Magnolia Backpack. All I want for Christmas is Givenchy Magnolia everything.
Chloé Drew Bag
$1,850 via Net-a-Porter
It’s been a spell since we saw a Chloé Drew in the wild, but here’s a lovely grey leather version on the arm of Hilary Duff, who’s doing a little holiday shopping/interacting with that train conductor at The Grove in LA.
Fendi Striped Peekaboo Bag
$5,500 via Saks
Here’s Jessica Simpson, leaving her NYC hotel with a colorful striped Fendi. I have never seen Jessica looking less upbeat while carrying a beautiful new handbag, and it makes me concerned for her emotional health.
Chanel Boy Bag
Lisa Vanderpump (one of our top three favorite Real Housewives) recently walked the red carpet at TrevorLIVE LA 2015 with a metallic pink Chanel that perfectly popped with her furry pink shrug. TrevorLIVE LA is an annual suicide prevention charity benefit for The Trevor Project, and you can learn more about it here.
Here’s Mindy Kaling (one of our top three favorite fake OB/GYNs), walking the event carpet for her charity fundraiser of choice, the 2015 March of Dimes Celebration of Babies. She’s also carrying a pink Chanel bag, and wearing a colorful dress from Peter Pilotto that definitely has an alternate-universe-Chanel vibe.
Céline Tie Tote
Frequent flyer/supermodel/handbag lover Miranda Kerr was recently spotted at LAX flashing a gorgeous black leather Céline Tie Tote. If there’s a secret haute couture Hollywood biker gang, Miranda is definitely a member.
Bottega Veneta Cabat Tote

Finally, here’s a haphazard shot of Selma Blair coming out of a gas station in LA with a beautiful silver Bottega Veneta tote. She looks perturbed for some reason. Is this not how every celeb wants to be photographed? Carrying a great handbag while coming out of a gas station wearing a poncho?
