This week, celebs have surprised us with a few rather obscure handbag choices from lesser-known brands that are at the peripheries of our radar, as well as bags from the major brands that generally have a lower profile. In a bizarre and disorienting twist, this week's most boring bag pick actually came from Rihanna , of all people, but only because she's been carrying her Dior Diorama bags for months now, as if it were her job. (It kind of is, I suppose.)
Elizabeth & James Scott Duffel Bag
$495 via Shopbop
Gigi Hadid was recently spotted leaving Joe Jonas' house with a practical black leather duffel from Mary Kate and Ashley's more budget-friendly bag brand, Elizabeth and James. The Jonas brother seems to be a very desirable lifestyle accessory for the "supermodel under 25" set right now.
Figue Embellished Tuk Tuk Bag
$795 via Shopbop
Heidi Klum was recently spotted out and about in NYC carrying a heavily embellished calfskin bag from Figue. If you find Figue's ornate embellishments and exotic style alluring, you should definitely check out more of their wares on Shopbop.
Anya Hindmarch Ebury Maxi Tote
$2,295 via mytheresa.com
Here's Jamie Chung, meeting her daily celeb juice quotient (as required by California law) at Clover Juice in West Hollywood. She's carrying a fun Anya Hindmarch tote that says "PHWOAR!" If you like big, bold graphics on your bags, you should know that Anya Hindmarch just started offering ways to customize your bags this year.
Saint Laurent Leather Tote
$1,890 via mytheresa.com
Miranda Kerr was recently spotted whipping through LAX with a gorgeous new black leather tote from Saint Laurent. We're not sure of the bag's name, but yes, it does somewhat resembles half a dozen other Saint Laurent handbag styles of past and present.
Analeena Dynasty Crocodile Bag
Shop via Analeena
Olivia Palermo recently attended a People StyleWatch party in NYC with a bright, bi-color croc bag from Analeena. Exotic skins seem to be a specialty of this up-and-coming handbag brand.
Alexander McQueen Padlock Tote
$2,760 via farfetch.com
Here's the eternally sophisticated Patricia Clarkson, leaving a taping of Live! With Kelly and Michael with a gorgeous red Alexander McQueen Padlock. Ms. Clarkson is currently making the press rounds to promote her new flick Learning to Drive.
Christian Dior Diorama Bag
Rihanna recently partied all night at 1OAK (in these heels, no less!), departing early the next AM with one of her many Dior Diorama Bags.
Chanel Vintage Metallic Bucket Bag
Rita Ora is also a fan of 1OAK, here she is leaving the club at a more reasonable hour with a tiny vintage Chanel. As you can see in The Many Bags of Rita Ora, Rita (usually) has a bold fashion viewpoint, and she can do evening glamour quite well. I just wanted to remind everyone of that because this outfit is obviously one of her semi-annual complete fashion fails.
