The Many Bags of New York Fashion Week Fall 2015’s Celebrity Attendees

New York Fashion Week has (almost) come to another close, and while we’ve got more coverage of the bags we saw on the runways on the way, we first wanted to look back at the bags that paparazzi captured outside the shows–those on the arms of the week’s most famous attendees. Take a look at the dozens upon dozens of notable bags we found below. (Spoiler alert: mini bags are in.)

Gigi Hadid
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote
$2,990 via Bergdorf Goodman

Gigi’s only been a model for a hot second, but she’s already starting to sit front row at shows instead of walk in them.


Hanneli Mustaparta
Prada Mini Promenade Bag
$1,060 via Bergdorf Goodman

“Bags too small to carry anything” are the new must-have, apparently.


Harley Viera-Newton
Mark Cross Grace Box Bag
$2,195 via Barneys

This will not be the last Grace Box Bag you see today.


Jessica Hart
Edie Parker Flavia Clutch
Shop Edie Parker via Neiman Marcus

This isn’t a great view on the bag, but we could spot that signature acrylic from a mile away.


Karlie Kloss
Chanel Classic Flap Bag

This bag is among Karlie’s favorites; she’s carried it on and off for years.


Kelly Bensimon
Céline Tie Tote

This shade of grey is so lovely that, for the first time, I actually like the Tie Tote.


Kendall Jenner
Céline Nano Luggage Tote

Considering how many bags Kendall surely gets sent for free, it’s impressive how loyal she is to this one.


Leigh Lezark
Longchamp x Jeremy Scott Le Pliage Bag

Longchamp and Jeremy Scott have an ongoing collaboration and VIPs at Scott’s shows generally receive the new seasonal prints as gifts.


Alina Cho
Mark Cross Grace Box Bag
$2,195 via Barneys

This Mark Cross bag is a totally adorable mini trunk, and its mix of minimalism and traditionalism have made it a favorite among fashion people.


Barbara Walters
Ralph Laurent Ricky Bag
$2,500 via Neiman Marcus

Barbara and her ever-present Ricky were on hand to Peter Copping’s first collection at Oscar de la Renta.


Aimee Song
Chloé Elle Bag

Many of the style bloggers outside NYFW shows have opted for outfits inappropriate for the literally face-numbingly cold weather in New York over the past week. Aimee looks refreshingly appropriate here. It’s best to break out the spring bags before the spring dresses.


Alexa Ray Joel
Valentino C-Rockee Fringe Tote

Fashion Week just looks prettier through the lightly falling snow.


Alina Cho
Hermès Constance Bag

Alina might have been at a Prada party, but she had her Hermès in tow.


AnnaSophia Robb
Mark Cross Grace Box Bag
$2,195 via Barneys

This bag feels like it’s one or two really great seasonal versions away from becoming very popular.


Chiara Ferragni
Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag
$1,700 via Nordstrom

These teeny-weeny runway bags are sure to show up on many more street style stars as fashion month continues. (Chiara’s isn’t even the only one in this gallery.)


Chrissy Teigen
Chanel Vintage Maxi Flap Bag

A vintage Chanel bag from this era is a solid choice in weather that’s less than ideal; so many of them have survived for decades that you have to assume they are indestructible.


Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis
Anya Hindmarch Big Eyes Pouch

Yes, this is a princess and Vogue columnist with a septum piercing. It’s a strange new world we live in.


Ella Catliff
Kate Spade Scallop Edge Tote
Shop Kate Spade via Nordstrom

Ella’s the blogger behind La Petit Anglaise, and her personal style tends toward the girlish and fun–Kate Spade is a perfect fit.


Ella Catliff
Sophie Hulme Shopper Tote
$850 via Nordstrom

Ella’s also British, and the Brits tend often to hold loyal to their London brands.


Erykah Badu
Fendi Peekaboo Bag
$4,500 via Barneys

Fendi kicked of NYFW by hosting a star-studded party for its new Madison Avenue flagship, and naturally, all the celeb attendees were decked out in Fendi.


Gigi Hadid
Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag

If you’re a show-hopping supermodel, a little bag like this is all you need–you can stow your snacks and supplies in your chauffeured car.


Hailee Steinfeld
Fendi Petite 3Baguette Bag
$2,550 via Barneys

The 3Baguette is Fendi’s big bag launch for Spring 2015–expect to see them distributed among stars accordingly.


Hailee Steinfeld
Prada Vachetta Shoulder Bag
$2,350 via Bergdorf Goodman

Somehow, all of the colors going on in this outfit and beauty look manage to work.


Helena Bordon
Prada Vachetta Lock Shoulder Bag
$2,350 via Bergdorf Goodman
Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag
$1,700 via Nordstrom

Bag or bag charm? When it comes to the Fendi Micro Peekaboo, you decide.


Jourdan Dunn
Fendi 3Baguette Bag
$2,550 via Bergdorf Goodman


Kate Bock
Saint Laurent Mini Sac de Jour Bag
$1,990 via Nordstrom

For how popular these bags are with celebrities, I was surprised not to see more on their arms at NYFW.


Khloé Kardashian
Saint Laurent Monogramme Matelasse Clutch
$1,290 via Nordstrom

Bless the Kardashians, for they are consistent.


Kristin Cavallari
Chanel Boy Bag

In the interest of transparency: I’m not totally sure that Kristin was going to or coming from a Fashion Week event in this photo, but her bag seemed worthy of inclusion.


Kristina Bazan
Saint Laurent Lulu Mini Shoulder Bag
$1,763 via MyTheresa

Let this be a lesson: do not forgo a coat on the coldest day of the year in hopes of looking cool. You will not look cool.


Leigh Lezark
Givenchy Nightingale Bag
$1,965 via Net-a-Porter

This look happened on that same, very cold day, and you can see Leigh’s unhappiness in her face, no matter how hard she’s trying to hide it.


Leigh Lezark
Fendi 3Baguette Bag
$2,550 via Barneys

Leigh certainly is brave (is “brave” the word?) when it comes to short skirts in cold weather.


Margaret Zhang
Givenchy Lucrezia Bag
$2,490 via farfetch.com

When we have to choose between a good shot of someone’s face and a good shot of someone’s bag, we choose the bag.


Mary J. Blige
Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Mary J. Blige does not have time or patience for being cold, unlike many of the women swanning around outside the shows.


Mary J. Blige
Gucci Python Jackie Soft Tote
$3,900 via Gucci

I wish our photo agency had more pics of Mary, because it seems like her taste in bags is fantastic.


Michelle Trachtenberg
Alice + Olivia Flap Clutch
Shop Alice + Olivia via Neiman Marcus

Going outside in this weather always manages to dry my skin out immediately, but somehow, Michelle still looks dewy.


Naomi Campbell
Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag
$1,700 via Nordstrom

Somehow, Naomi never ages.


Nicole Warne
M2Malletier Fabricca Clutch
$1,290 via Net-a-Porter

Nicole’s another of the style bloggers who appears to be regretting not strapping on a puffy coat.


Pat Cleveland
Fendi Baguette Bag
$2,650 via Net-a-Porter

Pat rose to supermodel status in the 70s, which makes this Baguette particularly appropriate.


Petra Nemcova
Fendi Mini By The Way Bag
$2,350 via Bergdorf Goodman

Fendi now makes so many different sizes, colors, variations and embellishments of its signature bags that I always feel like there are dozens I have yet to see.


Petra Nemcova
Prada Double Bag
$2,890 via Bergdorf Goodman

Petra is a Prada devotee; this seems like at least the third season in a row that we’ve caught her arriving to a show with a new Prada day bag.


Rachel Zoe
Balenciaga Le Dix Clutch

If I had this coat, I wouldn’t take it off until April.


Fendi 3Baguette Bag
$4,300 via Bergdorf Goodman

Fendi asked five celebrities to create their own 3Baguettes for a charity auction; this one is Rihanna’s. (Duh.)


Rosario Dawson
Fendi Baguette Bag
$5,350 via Fendi

It’d be hard to argue that celebrity dressing doesn’t work as a marketing tactic; looking at all these gorgeous, unique Fendi bags has made me want one even more.


Sarah Jessica Parker
Fendi 3Baguette Bag
Bid via Fendi

Sarah Jessica was another of the celebs chosen to design their own 3Baguettes.


Sarah Silverman
Alice + Olivia Box Clutch
Shop Alice + Olivia via Neiman Marcus

I’m always delighted when a celebrity who isn’t necessarily a fashion-favorite actress or singer shows up at a show and looks totally fab.


Shanina Shaik
Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bag

Forget the bag; I’m interested in this lovely, snuggly-looking coat.


Shea Marie
Fendi Petite 2Jours Bag
$2,350 via Bergdorf Goodman

It’s hard to make red, pink and orange all work together, but Fendi’s color-mixing somehow always works.


Sofia Coppola
Fendi Tube Wallet Clutch
$1,100 via Bergdorf Goodman

Sofia usually only shows her face at Fashion Week on the request of Marc Jacobs, but Karl Lagerfeld is quite convincing.


Susie Bubble
Louis Vuitton V Bucket Bag
$4,100 via Louis Vuitton

Susie’s aesthetic tends to be angular, modern and colorful, so although this bag feels like a demure choice for her, it doesn’t compete with her outfit.


Susie Bubble
Mansur Gavriel Canvas Backpack
$675 via Barneys

Another straightforward, slightly preppy choice from a blogger who is usually anything but. Again, though, it works.


Tina Craig
Hermès Kelly Bag
Anya Hindmarch Leather Stickers
$55/sticker via Net-a-Porter

When your life revolves around bags, apparently you can spare an Hermès to decorate with fancy stickers.


Tina Craig
Hermès Lizard Kelly Bag

Clearly, though, Tina kept the stickers away from her exotics.


Victoria Justice
DKNY Mini Satchel
Shop DKNY via Bloomingdale’s

It’s always surprised me that DKNY doesn’t put more of an emphasis on its bags; there’s a lot of opportunity at the brand’s price point.


Victoria Justice
ZAC Zac Posen Claudette Tassel Clutch
$395 via Nordstrom

There is a great bag in this pic, but I’m distracted by how gorgeous and perfect Victoria Justice is.


Zoe Kravitz
Fendi Demi Jour Bag

Please welcome our second septum piercing of the day. (I’m pretty sure Zoe had hers before Elisabeth.)
