It's that time of year again, when celebrities make the grand voyage to New Jersey to attend the Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic and pretend they like or understand polo. I love the pageantry of polo: the food, the champagne, the horses, the outfits, the stomping of the divots and, of course, the handbags. Today, we have all that and more in our bi-weekly look at what celebrities are carrying.
(P.S. If you haven't seen Vlad's pics from last year's Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, you should definitely take a look--they're phenomenal, if we do say so ourselves.)
Bulgari Serpenti Shoulder Bag
Here's Russian model/actress Daria Strokous, wearing her finest whites at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic and carrying a red Bulgari Serpenti, which seems most appropriate.
Chanel Alligator Classic Flap Bag
We've only seen a little bit of it, but I suspect EJ Johnson probably has a pretty spectacular designer handbag collection. Here he is at NAMI's Stigma Free Lunch at The District Restaurant in LA, carrying a red alligator Chanel Flap.
M2Malletier Amor Fati Bag
Shop M2Malletier via Net-a-Porter
Emma Roberts took a tiny, leopard-print M2Malletier bag to the Polo Classic. Animal print is not something you see in quantity at a polo match, but I like her chutzpah.
Max Mara Whitney Bag
$1,150 via Saks
Here's Gigi Hadid, leaving a little get-together at pal Taylor Swift's apartment in NYC, carrying the Max Mara-Whitney Museum collab bag. The Max Mara Whitney has been getting a fair bit of traction with celebs in recent weeks. We saw Sarah Jessica Parker carrying this bag last month.
Chanel Graffiti Backpack
Khloé Kardashian was spotted arriving at a hotel in NYC with one of her favorite bags, the Chanel Graffiti Backpack. Khloé has owned and loved this Chanel style ever since it was introduced last year. This may, in fact, be the same backpack we first saw Khloé with back in 2014. The graphics and graffiti placement are all the same, but it does seem to have faded a bit.
Givenchy Antigona Bag
Shop Givenchy via Saks
I enjoy this pic of Kylie Jenner for so many reasons. First off, she's clearly very aware that she's being photographed, and she can be certain that she looks good, because she just left Anastasia Salon in Beverly Hills with her girlfriend Pia Mia, but she's probably still using the front-facing camera on her phone just to triple-certify that she does, in fact, look amazing.
Chanel Wallet on Chain Bag
Here's Austrian model Nadine Leopold, also at the Polo Classic, carrying a teensy Chanel Wallet bag. That lace dress looks like it goes on forever, and I love it.
Goyard Boeing Duffel Bag
HOLD THE PHONES. That's right, this celeb handbag round-up features not one, but TWO celeb gentlemen with designer handbags! Here's Usher, "out and about" in NYC with an extremely practical Goyard Boeing Duffel Bag.
