Are you feeling upbeat and whimsical for reasons you can’t explain? It’s probably because, unbeknownst to you (or maybe very beknownst), Blake Lively has begun another movie promo tour. As you may remember, the press tour for Blake’s last film, Age of Adaline, was a rapturous fashion affair. You can see some of the highlights in this post about Blake Lively’s love of Louboutins. This is how Blake has built her movie career: she does one film a year, does one extensive, designer-filled press tour and lets the resulting paparazzi photos secure her A-list status for the next 12 months. It’s not a bad plan at all. Meanwhile, almost as if on cue, A-listers have stepped out and stepped up their handbag game. We’ve featured some celebs this week who we rarely ever see: Angelina Jolie, Melissa McCarthy, Nicki Minaj. It’s almost as exciting as a Blake Lively film about sharks.
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag
$2,890 via Saks
In case you’re wondering who on earth can manage to get/pay for “Hamilton” tickets this summer, here’s your answer: Angelina Jolie. Here’s Angie leaving the theater with her brother and two sons. She’s carrying a tawny brown Sac de Jour from her handbag brand of choice, Saint Laurent.
Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Bag
$2,000 via Saks
Here’s Blake, leaving the Greenwich Hotel to do a day of press appearances for her new movie The Shallows with a studded Sweet Charity bag from Louboutin. Her press tour for last year’s Age of Adaline involved a gob-smacking number of outfit changes, designer handbags and shoes, so I have high hopes for this one.
Céline Medium Square Bag
Celine Dion was recently snapped leaving the Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris with a white Céline Medium Square Bag. I can’t say I’m a huge fan of this one, but Celine Dion likes it, so I’m sure it has some merit.
The Row Hunting 9 Shoulder Bag
$3,800 via Barneys
Jennifer Aniston was recently seen going to the gym in NYC with an unassuming black leather bag from The Row. It fits perfectly with Jennifer’s very-subtle-but-very-expensive look, don’t you think?
Givenchy Pandora Bag
$1,940 via Neiman Marcus
Melissa McCarthy carried this oversized, washed lambskin version of the Givenchy Pandora Bag to LAX. It obviously makes a fab carry-on. Unrelated: I love when celebs wear floppy hats to the airport, and I especially love it when they wear them at night.
Chanel Denim Patchwork Boy Bag
Here’s Nicki Minaj, heading into the Playhouse club in Hollywood to watch boyfriend Meek Mill perform. She’s carrying one of her favorite Chanel bags, a patchwork denim edition of the Boy Bag. It’s extremely on-brand for Nicki Minaj.
