Celebrities are going minimal with the new Valentino My Rockstud Bag. The use of the word "Rockstud" in the name is a bit of a misnomer, because unlike everything else Rockstudded, this bag (rather surprisingly) has precious few actual studs. I could find only five on close examination of the bag in product photos, all attached to its gold hardware.
The Rockstud placement is extremely subtle, so, silver lining: if you've been put off by the Rockstud craze of recent years, Valentino might have finally made a bag with you in mind. If not, there are also some lovely designs from other companies on celebrity arms below.
First up, here's Alessandra Ambrosio, armed with her favorite taupe Birkin at Narita Airport in Japan. This Birkin is particularly well traveled (as are most, I would suspect); we just saw it at the Venice Film Festival last week.

Beyoncé recently had a little fun with the paps while sprinting out of her office in NYC. As you can see, she is carrying a brand new, bright white Valentino My Rockstud Bag. Bask in its glaring, minimalist glory.
Saint Laurent Monogramme Shoulder Bag

Celeb progeny has really been delivering on the bag-and-shoe front lately. Here's Hailey Baldwin, heading in to do a little shopping at Victoria's Secret in NYC with a lovely Saint Laurent Mongramme Shoulder Bag.
Valentino My Rockstud Striped Bag

Here's yet another one of those Valentino bags, and this time it's a multicolored striped version on the arm of Jessica Simpson, who is seen here venturing into LAX with her husband Eric Johnson.

Paps spotted 2015 US Open semifinalist and all-around sports legend Serena Williams having dinner at Carbone in NYC earlier this week with a cute little crossbody from MCM. (And maybe Drake? Was Drake there?)
Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag
Here's Sharon Obsbourne, getting herself a little something at Barneys in Beverly Hills. She's carrying a Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit, which looks innocuous enough, but is actually something of an unusual choice for Sharon. (You can peep at all of her usual Chanels and Birkins in The Many Bags of Sharon Osbourne.)
Miu Miu Madras Flap Satchel
$2,040 via Saks
Finally, here's one last blast from the Venice Film Festival: it's Whitney Cummings with her pretty pink Miu Miu. I couldn't find any info on what Whitney was doing at the VFF, but I did discover that she has recently put on 25 lbs, feels good about it and is happy to talk about it. Mad props, Whitney.
