Celebrities have come together to make a clear statement about something they care very deeply about: red handbags. Is red symbolic? Is it meant to raise awareness about meaningful issues? No, absolutely not. It's just extremely on-trend this week, and possibly this season. (We reserve the right to revise our opinion next week.) Also, some of our celebs look a bit downtrodden this week, and to that, we say: keep calm and carry on. And maybe carry a red bag?
Alessandra Ambrosio recently attended the Balmain Spring 2017 Men's fashion show in Paris with her daughter Anja. You know you're a high-roller in the fashion world when they let you bring your kids to these things. Alessandra is carrying one of her favorite Birkins, natch. This shade of taupe looks good with just about everything.
Gucci Dionysus Blooms Bag
$2,490 via Gucci
Elle Fanning has been a fan of Gucci's Dionysus line for some time now. Here she is at LAX with a bright and colorful Gucci Dionysus Blooms Bag. Elle is currently making the press rounds to promote her new flick Neon Demon.
Mark Cross Mini Grace Box Bag
$1,995 via Saks
Blink and you'll miss her, but it's Kate Beckinsale leaving The Nice Guy with a bright red Mark Cross mini. Kate is rarely this hard to photograph, so I have to imagine the paps were asking her far too many pressing questions.
Chanel Chevron Backpack
Grandma Kris Jenner recently took the kids to the movies in LA (yes, all of them, even Kanye!). She's carrying a black leather Chanel Chevron Backpack. The backpack is an unusual style choice for Kris, who usually prefers an oversized Chanel Flap or Birkin. It does look notably less backpack-like when you carry it this way, though.
Here's Kylie Jenner leaving The Forum in LA after Kanye debuted his new music video. She's carrying a tiny, brown Birkin. I'm bemused to see that thigh-high boots are still popular with a certain set this summer. (By "a certain set" I mean "under-25 and egregiously famous.")
Céline Ring Bag
Louis Vuitton Frank Gehry Twisted Monogram Bag
Rihanna has returned to London, and reunited with her treasured Louis Vuitton Frank Gehry Twisted Monogram Bag. Rihanna carried this bag many times in 2015, but she took an extended break from it in 2016 so she could spend more time with all of her Dior bags. She's seen here leaving Drama Nightclub. We know how much the English love Drama.
