Jessica Simpson loves handbags. We've all known that since she made her white Louis Vuitton Multicolore Speedy famous on The Newlyweds while I was still in high school, and although she's transitioned from singer/reality star to businesswoman in the intervening years, her accessories obsession as not budged.
Jessica resides in LA, where the paps mostly leave her alone during her day-to-day activities, but last week, she came to New York first a few days of publicity surrounding the ten-year anniversary of her massively successful shoe and apparel line. During those few days, we kept a tally of what she carried, and even we were impressed.
We found evidence of no fewer than eight bags that made the trip with Simpson and her husband, including several black day bags that could have easily be edited down into one tote for the whole trip. That's what most celebrities on press jaunts do; it's not uncommon to see even the biggest stars carry the same bag for a couple weeks at a time. They say everything is bigger in Jessica's native Texas, though, and apparently that includes her suitcases.
We've documented her four days of handbags below; to get her look at a more reasonable price point, you can shop her eponymous line via Macy's.
CH Carolina Herrera Fringe Tote
CH Carolina Herrera bags aren't commonly available in the US, but stars have a way of getting their hands on things.
Charlotte Olympia Dali Perspex Lips Clutch
$1,365 via Net-a-Porter
This clutch was inspired by Salvador Dalí, and I would be genuinely curious to hear Jessica's thoughts on surrealism.
Edie Parker Jean Clutch
$895 via Moda Operandi
Jessica Simpson travels with clutch options. A girl's gotta have options, after all.
Givenchy Easy Tote
$1,390 via Barneys
For a bubbly blonde from Texas, Jessica sure does appreciate a good all-black look.
Marni Shoulder Bag
$1,590 via Net-a-Porter
Jessica isn't the first person you'd think of when trying to picture a superfan of Marni's retro-modern quirk (Maggie Gyllenhaal, perhaps), but she's carried more than a couple of the brand's bags over the years.
Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Cabas Tote
$2,450 via Net-a-Porter
Jessica tends to snap up big new bag designs as soon as they hit stores; that's the case with this brand new look from Saint Laurent.
Valentino My Rockstuds Striped Bag
$3,545 via Neiman Marcus
Same goes for this Valentino from the flight into NYC.
This is the only bag from Jessica's celebratory jaunt to NYC that we couldn't identify. If you can, let us know.
