Stars both traditional and digital descended on Paris this week with bags from Chanel, Louis Vuitton and more in tow
That's a wrap, folks! Another season of shows is in the books, and we've got but two things to do before we wrap up: count down Paris Fashion Week's best runway bags (that's coming Monday) and take a look at which bags the week's most notable attendees carried to the shows (that's right now). Paris Fashion Week is always the best time of the season for street style, and from top-tier Instagram stars to A-list actresses, showgoers didn't disappoint.
First up is Mexican model Adriana Abascal, who carries a Valentino clutch to the brand's show. Shop the Valentino Demuline Clutch via Neiman Marcus ($2,745)
Alice is a longtime Karl Lagerfeld muse (and star of the inaugural Boy Bag campaign), so she still turns up at Chanel shows quite frequently. This time, she did it with one of the brand's little drawstring tweet bags. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Alicia Vikander was among the very first faces Nicolas Ghesquiere brought on when he arrived at Louis Vuitton, and she's remained a favorite. At the brand's show, she carried the new circle bag whose name I (frustratingly) do not yet know.
Chanel always invites a number of French cultural figures to its shows, in addition to the parade of It Girls and ingenues. In the past, that's included journalists and producers. This time around, it was Aurelie, a veteran ballerina. She carried a Chanel Classic Flap for the occasion. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Brazilian Instagram star Camila Coelho has had a steadily rising profile over the past few years, and Spring 2018 was her most prolific show season yet. Here, she carried a Dior Dioraddict Bag to, you guessed it, Dior. Shop Dior Bags via Vestiaire Collective
She also attended the LV show with a Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag in hand. Shop the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag via Louis Vuitton ($9,300)
She also carried LV to at least one non-LV show: this Louis Vuitton Twist Bag from a couple seasons ago. Shop the Louis Vuitton Twist Bag via Louis Vuitton ($3,250)

Valentino seems to be making a big push for its Demilune Bags. Shop the Valentino Demilune Groumette Bag via Neiman Marcus ($2,275)
I hope Catherine Deneuve never stops going to Fashion Week. (Also, this is another one of those new Louis Vuitton bags that doesn't seem to have a public name yet.)
All the fancy bloggers came out for Dior, including Chiara Ferragni toting a Dior Dioraddict Flap Bag. Shop Dior Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Cindy Crawford made the rounds this year because her daughter Kaia Gerber walked in tons of shows, and I, for one, am happy to see her make a return to the industry. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
I didn't spot Courtney Love in the arrivals shots for any shows (which doesn't necessarily mean she wasn't there—our photo service is only so thorough), but she was for sure in Paris at the same time, arriving at her hotel with a Gucci Dionysus Bag. Shop the Gucci Dionysus Bag via Gucci ($3,980)
Emily Ratajkowski is a traditional model, of course, but her social media presence has been a huge boon to her career, and Dior loves the social stars lately. She attended carrying a Dior Scorpio Heart Clutch. Shop Dior Bags via Vestiaire Collective
She also attended Miu Miu with a Prada Flap Bag I've yet to see in stores. Shop Prada Bags via Net-a-Porter
Back at Dior, Eva Herzigova showed up with one of the brand's brand new top handle bags in lizard. Shop Dior Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Movie star Fan Bingbing was among the elegant crowd at Louis Vuitton, carrying a Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag and sporting a seriously enviable ombre dye job. Shop the Louis Vuitton Petite Mall Bag via Louis Vuitton ($6,650)
Traditional celebrity guests have been outnumbered by digital celebrities this year, but Givenchy brought out Fergie and outfitted her with a Givenchy Pandora Box Minaudiere. Shop the Givenchy Pandora Box Bag via Net-a-Porter ($2,090)
I wish Loewe was thirstier about its blogger and celeb invites, because I always like seeing the brand's unique bags in action, like this polka dot Loewe Puzzle Bag. Shop the Loewe Puzzle Bag via Nordstrom ($2,850)
Girl on the Train actress Haley Bennett attended Chloé's show with one of the brand's new runway bags on her arm: the Chloé Drew Bijou Bag. Shop the Chloé Drew Bag via Net-a-Porter ($1,850)
Helena Bordon is one of fashion's most tenured blog attendees, and with the Fendi Triplet Ring Pouch, she didn't even bother carrying the bag of any of the brands showing in Paris. Shop the Fendi Triplet Ring Pouch via Bergdorf Goodman ($2,250)
Model Herieth Paul graced plenty of Parisian catwalks, and outside the shows she graced us with this Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag. Shop the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag via farfetch.com ($2,650)

Jennifer's carrying another one of those nameless circular LV bags, but can we just take this moment to appreciate how glossy her hair is?
This is another Vuitton bag whose name we don't know! Jennifer gets all the cool stuff early.
We don't know the name of Jourdan Dunn's bag either, but I'm betting it's Balmain; that she show she was leaving, and several of the other models were also carrying Balmain bags that were a bit more clearly intended to be brand promo. This was the best of the lot.
Julianne's preturantural paleness just really works with the whole Givenchy proto-goth thing. She attended the brand's first show with designer Clare Waight Keller carrying a Givenchy Pandora Box Bag. Shop the Givenchy Pandora Box Bag via Net-a-Porter ($2,090)
We caught model Kozue Akimoto also carrying a petite Givenchy bag: the Givenchy Horizon Nano Bag. Shop the Givenchy Horizon Nano Bag via Bergdorf Goodman ($1,390)
Kristina's trying to transition from Instagram star to pop star, but she still had time to pop by Louis Vuitton carrying a Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag. Shop the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Bag via Louis Vuitton ($5,200)
The night before the LV show, actress Laura Harrier attended a Vuitton party with another of those circle bags.
Under Nicolas Ghesquiere, Louis Vuitton has really upped its own French It Girl game in a way that competes with Chanel, and Lea Seydoux is an important part of that. Here, she's carrying a Louis Vuitton Alma at the brand's party. Shop the Louis Vuitton Alma BB Bag via Louis Vuitton ($2,140)
At the show itself, Lea carried one of the new LV circle bags.
Sadly, this is the only photo of Marjorie Harvey we spotted this year. Not-so-sadly, she's carrying a very special Chanel Rocket Ship Clutch. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Michelle Williams is so Louis Vuitton that she's one of the few holdovers from the Marc Jacobs days. She carried this quasi-Noe bag to the LV party.
At the show, she opted for a classic: the Louis Vuitton Speedy. Shop the Louis Vuitton Speedy via Louis Vuitton ($1,390)
Russian editor Miroslava Duma used to carry tons of interesting bags, but lately she's settled on one brand she prefers over all others: Gabriela Hearst. Here she's carrying one of the brand's more recent designs, the Diana Bag.
Mira still has a lot of love for the original, though: the Gabriela Hearst Nina Bag.
We normally only catch Monica at Milan Fashion Week (she's a Dolce & Gabbana favorite) but this season she hopped up to Paris to attend Chanel, Chanel Gabrielle Clutch on Chain in hand. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
The Givenchy Obsedia Mini Hobo isn't a current design, but Natasha Poly has been carrying it everywhere lately, PFW and beyond.
Negin boasts one of the most impressive Instagram followings in fashion, with over 4 million followers. She looks pretty great here on her way into Dior with a Dior Scorpio Heart Bag. Shop Dior Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Mystery bag time! We're not quite sure what Olivia is carrying here.
In the case of Riley, we know what she's carrying but we don't know what it's called.
On her way out of walking in the Balmain show, supermodel Romee Strijd carried the Fendi Kan I Bag. Shop the Fendi Kan I Bag via Nordstrom ($2,850)
Salma is married it Francois-Henri Pinault, who runs Kering, and Kerin owns Stella McCartney, so Salma always shows up to support with a Stella McCartney bag in tow. This one is new, so we're not sure of the precise name. Shop Stella McCartney Bags via Neiman Marcus
All the supers came out for Balmain, including Sara Sampaio toting a Tod's Wave Bag. Shop the Tod's Wave Bag via Net-a-Porter ($1,595)
Brazilian blogger Thassia was spotted toting this very unique (and possibly vintage) little Chanel Frame Bag. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Outside Miu Miu, Thassia opted for a Prada Cahier Notebook Bag. Shop the Prada Cahier Bag via Net-a-Porter ($2,660)
Paparazzi pictures from PFW's parties are a bit less plentiful than the shows, but photogs still caught model Tina Kunakey outside the CR Fashion Book soiree with a Fendi Peekaboo. Shop the Fendi Peekaboo Bag via Nordstrom ($3,450)
Blogger Vanessa Hong had an interesting take: she's wearing the Loewe T Crossbody Bag wrapped around her waste like a fanny pack. Shop the Loewe T Crossbody Bag via Bergdorf Goodman ($990)
Yuwei might be an Instagram star, but she's also a good reminder that they aren't all just pretty faces: she has an MBA. Shop Dior Bags via Vestiaire Collective
