It’s a strange day at my virtual news desk when an indie musician has the nicest, newest Chanel bag in our entire celebrity handbag roundup. We’re featuring all of our usual Real Housewives, ex-Real Housewives, TV personalities and pop starlets, and yet, some of these high-end handbag selections have frankly seen better days. Now, let it be known, I completely respect a woman’s right to get her money out of a multi-thousand dollar bag, right down to the last cent. I’m just surprised when I see women who spend a lot of time in the public eye doing just that. Way to stick it to those haters, ladies! Ain’t no shame in your (relatively) thrifty game.

Bethenny Frankel
Chanel Boy Bag

Here’s Bethenny Frankel, carrying a pleated leather Chanel Boy Bag while getting froyo with her daughter in Manhattan. A NY judge recently ruled that Bethenny no longer has to pay her ex $12K a month in spousal support, so that should free up a lot of dollars for new handbags.

Demi Lovato
Saint Laurent Belle de Jour Clutch
$1,150 via Saks

Little black leather Saint Laurent clutches are getting a lot of love as of late. We saw Real Housewife Taylor Armstrong carrying an older one a couple of weeks ago, and now here’s Demi Lovato, out and about in Tribeca with a newer, glittery version.

Erin Andrews
Céline Luggage Tote

Sportscaster Erin Andrews was recently spotted booking it through LAX with a black Céline Luggage Tote, which she has owned and loved since at least 2014.

Kaley Cuoco
Balenciaga Flat Crossbody Bag
$745 via Neiman Marcus

Here’s a bag you don’t see everyday: the Balenciaga Flat Crossbody Bag, on the arm of Kaley Cuoco as she exits a CVS in LA. This Balenciaga comes in a variety of different colors and finishes, and (it should be noted) retails for less than a grand.

Kelly Bensimon
Chanel Chain Trim Flap Bag

Model/NYC socialite/Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon was recently spotted walking through Soho with an especially well-loved Chanel Chain Trim Flap Bag. Her puffer jacket is not doing that bag any favors. They look like they were sold as a set.

Nicole Kidman
Valentino My Rockstud Bag
$2,995 via Net-a-Porter

Here’s Nicole Kidman, arriving back on her home turf at the Sydney Airport with her two youngest daughters, Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose. She’s carrying a trendy black Valentino My Rockstud Bag.

St. Vincent
Chanel Chevron Flap Bag

Here’s indie music fave St. Vincent, arriving at the Eurostar in London en route to Paris with her girlfriend Cara Delevingne. She’s carrying a cream colored Chanel Chevron Flap Bag, which looks notably newer than both the Chanel bags we spotted earlier.

I want to talk about Olivia Palermo’s burgundy croc Birkin that she carried to the Miles Ahead premier. I’m usually indifferent (Kardashian-provoked Birkin fatigue), but hers made my eyes pop. I think it’s because I love burgundy so much. Anyhoo, it is a lovely bag, and I think (?) it’s new. I only recall seeing her previously with her tan and black Birkins.

Right!—I have never wanted a Birkin more…and been so sad that my financials limit the purchase. She does always seem to carry the most unique versions of items (or it could just be that her flawless style makes them seem stand out). I’ve often wondered where she gets her money, though!

Right? What does that girl do for a living besides shop and dress for photos? I like her style too but I’m almost tire of how exacting it always seems to be.

It is SO beautiful! Can you tell what size it is?

Bethenny’s bag looks too heavy as a crossbody. Nicole’s daughters look like they could be twins.

A lot of the less than B list celebrity pics on fro yo or Starbucks run look like deliberate parading for paps.
