It seems summer gets shorter and shorter every year. But while summer vacay is rapidly spiraling to a close for some of us (kids actually go back to school before August now, in some places), celebs seem to be hitting their summer stride. This week, they're carrying ridiculously summery handbag options. I'm talking about top-handled wicker totes, blindingly white leather bucket bags, that kind of thing. If you need a little summer style inspiration to propel you through the rest of the season, look no further.
Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag
Alicia Vikander is making the press rounds to promote the latest entry in the Jason Bourne movie franchise. Here she is leaving a press appearance in NYC with a gold and silver Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag. Alicia was tapped to be a face of Louis Vuitton last year, and she has been carrying the brand's bags religiously ever since.
Chanel Maxi Classic Flap Bag
Here's EJ Johnson, heading into an appearance on Kimmel to promote another season of Rich Kids with his treasured Chanel Maxi Classic Flap. EJ's gender-neutral personal style is always refreshing in a world where many men feel weird carrying any kind of bag, let alone one primarily marketed to a female audience.

Now let's focus on something we can all agree on: Gigi Hadid's eye make-up, and how awesome it is. Gigi is actually seen here leaving a photo shoot in NYC. She's carrying her favorite bag of the summer, the Versace Mini Palazzo Empire. She's been carrying this bag almost exclusively for weeks.
Chanel Drawstring Bag
Paps spotted Kelly Rowland doing a little grocery shopping, post-workout in LA with a lovely quilted navy blue Chanel Drawstring Bag in tow.

Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag

And here's an especially glamorous-looking Kristen Bell, heading into Kimmel to promote her new movie with a classy black Saint Laurent Sac de Jour. Bad Moms will be in theaters everywhere next Friday, July 29th, and I feel that if you support WOMEN in the movies, you should see it, as an act of solidarity.
