As ever, celebrities are jumping the gun just a little with their barely seasonal handbag choices, but we can forgive them, because a good many of them live in LA. Los Angeles may as well exist in a biodome–that is how far removed it is from the seasons we see on the East Coast. And that’s not even factoring in everything else that’s different about LA. Another seasonal shift that keeps happening every spring for no discernible reason: bags are getting smaller, and celebs are clinging to new minis from Alexander Wang and Saint Laurent as if all their favorite gargantuan designer totes from February never even existed.
Saint Laurent Beach Tote
$795 via Net-a-Porter
Here’s Alessandra Ambrosio leaving LAX, returning from somewhere notably colder, yet somehow still beach tote-appropriate?
Saint Laurent Lipstick Camera Bag
$1,990 via FWRD
Demi Lovato was recently spotted out with her ex, Joe Jonas, in West Hollywood. She’s carrying a dainty, lipstick-patterned Saint Laurent bag, and I bet you can guess who makes her top.
Balenciaga Papier A6 Mini Tote
$1,395 via Balenciaga
Here’s celeb stylist June Ambrose, leaving Polo Bar in NYC with a black, pebbled leather Birkin. This look seems a little on-the-nose for dining at a Ralph Lauren eatery, but when in Polo Bar…
Givenchy Logo Antigona Bag

Paps spotted Kendall Jenner carrying this new Givenchy Logo Antigona Bag while getting coffee at Alfred’s in LA. Kendall was one of the first celebs to receive this bag when it made its debut back in January.
Louis Vuitton Vivienne Shoulder Bag
Here’s Kirsten Dunst, arriving for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. She’s carrying a lovely Louis Vuitton bag that she has owned and loved since at least December. I’m more entranced by her beautiful embroidered gown though–does anyone know the designer?
Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag
$695 via Barneys
This is certainly one of our most shocking handbag selections of the week: it’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, shopping at Fred Segal in West Hollywood with a pale pink Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag. Rosie has ridiculously high-end tastes (that pair well with her ridiculously high-end life), and I’m not sure we’ve ever seen her carry something so unassuming and (comparatively) affordable.
Alexander Wang Small Rogue Bag
$975 via Net-a-Porter
Finally, here’s Zoë Kravitz, minding her own business in NYC. She’s carrying a brand new Alexander Wang bag that really maximizes the silver hardware per square inch. You can read more about the Alexander Wang Rogue, here.
