Outside the shows, style stars’ bag picks were as good as the things coming down the week’s runways
Paris Couture Week Spring 2018 has come and gone, and a few days ago, Kaitlin gave you a look at what Instagram's biggest stars carried to the shows. Now, we're here to give the week's attendees one last look to survey what celebrities were carrying in general.
As is often the case with fashion shows, the brands showing were heavily represented on the arms of the shows' attendees. In this case, that means lots of Chanel and Dior, which is a phenomenon about which we've never complain. Check out the best looks below.
From the Valentino Free Rockstud Spikes Bag she's carrying, I bet you can guess whose couture show Adriana Abascal was attending. Shop the Valentino Free Rockstud Spikes Bag via farfetch.com ($2,195)
I don't know for a fact that Karl Lagerfeld always assigns Alice Dellal a Chanel Boy Bag because she was the star of the design's debut ad campaign, but I have my suspicions. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
