The hottest color of the week technically isn't a color at all. Several celebs were drawn to bright white handbags this week, and a new handbag from Tod's continues to make waves with LA celebs. (I'm sorry. It's called the Wave, this is clearly the sort of terrible pun the brand was clamoring for.) These bright white leather bags do hold up extremely well when exposed to copious amounts of flash photography. Just don't scuff them, let them touch the ground, wear new denim or eat ripe cherries while carrying them, of course. It's all pretty straightforward.
The Row Classic 5 Satchel
$4,500 via Net-a-Porter
Are you taking notes on Chrissy Teigen's cookbook-tour maternity style? I feel we all should be. Chrissy is still carrying her two-tone The Row Classic 5 Satchel, which we first saw her with last month. Why mess with a good thing?
Tod's Wave Bag
$2,165 via mytheresa.com
Freida Pinto carried this increasingly trendy Tod's bag to the LA film premiere of her new flick Knight of Cups. I believe this is a slightly smaller version of the Wave than we saw Alessandra Ambrosio with last week, but I'm not quite sure if it's the Micro Wave. (No, really, that's a thing they're going with.)
Givenchy Nightingale Bag
$2,190 via Barneys
Here's Hilary Duff heading into LAX. She's returned to her Givenchy Nightingale Bags, and I frankly cannot get enough of this gorgeous dusty pink version. Strangely enough, it looks really great with Hilary's complexion. We should all be so lucky.
Valentino My Rockstud Bag
$2,995 via Net-a-Porter
J-Lo is a known Valentino lover, so we're not surprised to see her carrying a simple black version of Valentino's latest big bag outside of ABC Studios in NYC. I'm far more entranced by her lipstick/matching rhinestone situation, though.
Marc Jacobs Gotham Bauletto Satchel
$450 via Shopbop
Kate Mara undoubtedly has our most affordable handbag pick of the week. She's carrying a bright white version of the Marc Jacobs Gotham Bauletto Satchel (not to be confused with the Marc Jacobs Gotham East West Tote, which is slightly different) as she plows through LAX en route to Paris Fashion Week.
Hermès Crocodile Birkin
Céline Ring Bag
Here's actress/model/TV presenter/Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo, leaving dinner at Craig's with a gorgeous white Céline Ring Bag. Have your eyes adjusted to these blindingly white designer bags yet?
Buscemi PHD Backpack
$2,750 via Neiman Marcus
Finally, here's Trey Songz arriving at LAX with an extremely fetching bright red Buscemi PHD Backpack. This Buscemi bag should probably be the go-to man bag for most male celebs, and I suspect we'll see more of it before long. (And yes, the man who owns this line is related to actor Steve Buscemi--Jon, the designer, is his cousin.)
