Our photo service runneth over with fantastic handbag (and designer shoe) pics from this year's Critics' Choice Awards. (By the way, you guys are checking out our weekly celebrity designer shoe round-ups, yes? They are also penned by yours truly.) The CCAs are a slightly more low-key affair than your Golden Globes or Oscars, and historically, they've been bigger on industry cred than Hollywood glamour. In fact, they didn't even show them on TV until 2014. But that added exposure has apparently forced celebs to up their fashion game considerably this year, and let's just say we approve. We highly approve.
Judith Leiber Couture Satin Box Clutch
$2,195 via Neiman Marcus
If you're wondering why America Ferrera is mysteriously all over the awards circuit, it's because she has a new show to promote, natch. (It's Superstore, and it airs Mondays at 8/7c on NBC.) Here she is at the Critics' Choice Awards, carrying a crystal-lined, pink satin Judith Leiber clutch.
Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack
$1,650 via Louis Vuitton
This little Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack from the brand's Cruise 2016 Collection is gaining traction fast in the celebuverse. We just saw Kylie Jenner carrying one a couple of weeks ago, and here's blogger/shoe designer Chiara Ferragni toting one around LA.
Chanel Top Handle Frame Bag
EJ Johnson has provided us with a double serving of designer goodness this week. Here he is leaving an LA restaurant with a smoothie in one hand and a sumptuous black leather Chanel Top Handle Frame Bag in the other.
Hermes Crocodile Birkin
And here's EJ once again, "on set" with fellow Rich Kid Dorothy Wang. You'll notice he's carrying a 30cm brown croc Birkin and wearing an entirely different leather motorcycle jacket. This one has tails.
Dolce & Gabbana Vanda Clutch
$3,995 via farfetch.com
Helen Mirren, I have to congratulate you: you've discovered a clutch that I actually kind of hate, which is probably a first. Dolce & Gabbana outfits Helen more than any other designer, and they specialize in opulent red carpet-worthy bags and clutches. This one is somehow just too frou-frou for my taste.
Balenciaga A6 Papier Mini Tote
$1,465 via Balenciaga
Here's Karlie Kloss, reminding us all that she is indeed a supermodel while strolling in the West Village. She's carrying a Balenciaga mini that looks especially delicate for some reason, as if it's actually just an origami version of a Balenciaga bag.
Saint Laurent Monogramme Studded Clutch
$1,150 via FWRD
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also attended the CCAs this year because her man (Jason Statham) was in a movie that received a fair amount of love from critics this year (Spy). Not that they would've booted her if she'd shown up looking like this without a date or an invite, because REALLY. Anyway, she's carrying a gorgeous Saint Laurent Monogramme Studded Clutch, which she's paired with an elegant black Saint Laurent gown.
Dior Lizard Miss Dior Promenade Clutch
Finally, here's Zoë Kravitz, walking the CCAs carpet with a lovely silver lizard skin Miss Dior clutch. Her top and pants are also Dior Couture. We've all seen the ads Zoë and her mother Lisa Bonet did for Calvin Klein by now, haven't we? They're ridiculously beautiful, of course.
