Doing these celeb round-ups has really given me a more comprehensive idea of what celebs are carrying on any given week. (Amanda has always been the one tasked with wading through piles of celeb photos to make these selections, bless her.) It means I see almost 20 different bag selections every week instead of just five, which leads me to observations, like the fact that brands like Proenza Schouler and Chloé are more popular right now than you might suspect. While neither brand can lay claim to a current It Bag, they do have a devoted fan base of celebs that carry them on the regular, including a few that might surprise you.
Proenza Schouler Patchwork Bucket Bag
Shop Proenza Schouler via Neiman Marcus
Hilary Duff left the Chanel at home for once and opted to carry this luxe, multi-textured Proenza bag to a nail salon in West Hollywood. This gorgeous bag is from Proenza Schouler's Pre-Fall 2014 Collection. I was a bit surprised when PS hopped on the bucket bag train, but this design at least brings something new to the table.
Chloé Drew Perforated Shoulder Bag
$1,990 via Bergdorf Goodman
Here's Hilary Swank "out and about" in Beverly Hills, carrying an attractive, perforated version of a Chloé bag that we dubbed one of The Most Important Bags of 2014. Spring deliveries are just now arriving, so we'll see how quickly they sell through.
Givenchy Studded Pandora Bag
Shop Givenchy via Net-a-Porter
The Kardashian-Jenners spend an absurd amount of time loitering around what our photo service refers to as "medical buildings" in Beverly Hills. Here's Kendall Jenner, leaving such a building with a studded Pandora. This is the only iteration of the Pandora I don't like; I don't feel those giant studs add anything to this design.
Here's Khloé Kardashian leaving another favorite Kardashian haunt--the gym--with one of her favorite Hermès Birkins. In fact, this one might be her designated "gym Birkin."
Christian Dior Lady Dior Mini Tote
Is fashion really just this effortless when you're French? Marion's mixed stripes, leopard shawl, mini Lady Dior and amazing Stella McCartney sunglasses look so natural on her.
Louis Vuitton x Christian Louboutin Shopping Tote
Select Louis Vuitton collab bags have remained popular with celebs many months after their debuts. Though should we really be surprised when Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin collaborate on a bag that stars really like? Probably not, but other bags from the Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection certainly didn't fare quite as well.
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag
$2,890 via MATCHESFASHION.COM
Here's Rachel Zoe, dining at Craig's in West Hollywood and carrying a black Sac de Jour. I rambled on about this bag at length earlier in the week. In short, like many of you, I find its continued popularity perplexing.
The Row Satchel 12 Tote
$2,850 via Net-a-Porter
Here's Reese Witherspoon, wearing one of her smug, "I'm not going to acknowledge I'm being photographed by paps" faces, which are my favorite. I thought her satchel from The Row might be facing the wrong way, but no. It's really just that simple. And expensive.
