As if on cue, celebs have suddenly swapped out the uber-distressed denim short shorts for linen blazers, summer dresses and all the elegant wardrobe staples we associate with summer. This celeb bag roundup also features a very visceral, summery mix of colors and textures: off-whites, light greys, linens and stitched leathers. The brands are notably more upscale this week too; it's all Hermès, Saint Laurent and Dior, plus a single, weird little music festival entry from Moschino.
Valentino Crocodile Lock Bag
Shop Valentino via Saks
I'm kind of bummed Chrissy has already ditched her voluminous curly hairdo from last week. Here she is, heading to lunch in Beverly Hills, wearing a linen blazer that perfectly pops with her rockstudded Valentino bag.
Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag
Linen blazers seem to be quite trendy in LA right now. Here's Emmy Rossum, also in Beverly Hills, carrying a classic, light grey Lady Dior.
Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch Bag
Meanwhile, Jessica Alba was spotted vibing out in Malibu over the July 4th weekend with her husband Cash Warren. She's carrying a cute little white Proezna Schouler PS1 Pouch with gold hardware.
Moschino Teddy Bear Crossbody Bag
$525 via farfetch.com
I know Moschino is one of those fairly polarizing brands that people either love or hate. I, for the most part, love the zany stuff the brand does, but I'm not especially impressed with Jourdan Dunn's Teddy Bear Crossbody. While it seems like an appropriate choice for a music festival (she's at the Wireless Festival in London), Teddy looks like he's already been through the wash about five times. Whatever they're charging for this bag, it's too much.
Hermès Steve Messenger Bag
Here's Julia Louis-Dreyfus, looking pensive at LAX. She's carrying a nice, neutral Hermès messenger bag. If you, like me, are not as familiar with Hermès' more unisex styles, you may be surprised to find out this "Steve" bag has apparently been around for some time.
Beverly Hills was teeming with celebs of all stripes last week. Here's Maria Shriver, carrying one of her many, many Birkins. Maria may be one of our "Birkins-only" celebs. We don't have sufficient proof to the contrary.
Saint Laurent Betty Shoulder Bag
$1,950 via Barneys
Here's Salma Hayek, being ushered into the Saint Laurent Men's Spring 2016 show in Paris by her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault. He has a vested interest in a huge number of the brands whose bags we all love, including Saint Laurent. Salma is carrying a charming and well-loved looking Saint Laurent Betty.
Alaïa Laser-Cut Tote
Shop Alaïa via Net-a-Porter
Swedish model/actress/singer/TV personality Victoria Silvstedt was recently spotted in Saint Tropez with a gorgeous, neutral leather Alaïa tote. No, this is not a photo shoot. This is just someone enjoying her tropical vacation. Victoria seems to exist in a near-permanent state of vacay.
