When I opened up our photo agency's website to select which celebs we would cover yesterday, I was met with a veritable Kardashian-a-palooza. Most PR people and event planners would give their right arms to have the arrivals and departures at their events covered as breathlessly as the celebrity media has dissected Kelly Osbourne's and Nene Leakes' attendance at Kim Kardashian's Baby Shower. To our knowledge, though, no one's dissected what those attendees were carrying to the joyous event, so that's where we come in.
The bags were great, of course - Kim doesn't have many non-rich friends - but for me, the most interesting part was seeing who was invited to the party. It's hard to remember that even Kardashians have friends like the rest of us, and Kim's apparently include singers, reality TV stars and members of the entertainment-industrial complex. There were also a few people we couldn't name (and neither could our photo agency), but if the bags were good enough, we included them as well.
I don't really know where to start, so let's start with a former Spice Girl - Melanie Brown toted a rare Hermes Club Birkin to fete Kim's new addition.
Songwriter (and family friend, probably) Carol Bayer Sager went all-in on the Hermes theme with an Hermes Crocodile Birkin.
Actually, Hermes Birkins were pretty popular in general, even when we couldn't name the person carrying them.
Khloe Kardashian's bestie Malika Haqq went petite with this Lanvin Satin Pouch. Shop Lanvin via Neiman Marcus.
TV host Maria Menounos also chose to stick with a petite bag, opting for this Saint Laurent Logo Pouch. Pick up a similar clutch for $650 via Neiman Marcus.
This woman, who our photo agency identified as Rebel Wilson (but who is not Rebel Wilson - Hollywood needs to remember that there is more than one young, zaftig blonde woman in the universe), chose a petite Charlotte Olympia Pandora Perspex Clutch. Buy through Moda Operandi for $925.
While Nene Leakes opted for a petite Jimmy Choo Candy Acrylic Clutch, her unidentified friend chose the always-popular Celine Luggage Tote. Get the bronze version of Nene's clutch for $595 via Net-a-Porter.
Robin Antin also had a Celine Luggage Tote moment at Kim's shower.
Like some of the others, Brittny Gastineau chose a small clutch - can you identify this heavily embellished evening bag?
Brittny's mom Lisa Gastineau opted instead for the Fendi 2Jours Tote in blue. Get it for $2,260 via Neiman Marcus.
I looked long and hard for a better shot of what I think is a Chanel Shoulder Bag on Kelly Osbourne's arm, but this is the best I can do. Shop Chanel via Portero.
If you know who this woman is, let us know - we know her bag is a Chanel Classic Flap Bag, though.
Kris Jenner was the only immediate family member to make much of an appearance outside the festivities - she chose a Tom Ford Natalia Shoulder Bag that matched her pink dress. Pick one up (on sale!) for $2,472 via Neiman Marcus.
