Dueling Fashion Weeks should always make for some fantastic celeb handbag voyeurism, and Milan and Paris are definitely delivering. (BTW, have you seen the latest runway offerings from Bottega Veneta, Prada, Fendi and Gucci? Or the great bags that Milan Fashion Week attendees are carrying?)
Meanwhile, back on the mainland, celebs are making some surprisingly novel and surprisingly affordable bag picks. When they're not carrying Chanel, of course.
Moschino Biker Jacket Backpack
$2,295 via Saks
Amber Rose (yes, that is her behind those giant shades) was recently spotted doing a little shopping in West Hollywood with a fun Moschino backpack. Amber Rose is perhaps one of our most devoted celebrity Moschino enthusiasts.
Givenchy Antigona Bag
$2,435 via Saks
Kendall Jenner and co. have all decamped to Paris for Paris Fashion Week, so of course, here's Kendall's pal Hailey Baldwin meeting up with the Jenners for dinner at L'Avenue. Her bag is obviously the Givenchy Antigona, and her all-around look also smacks of Givenchy.
Elizabeth & James Scott Moon Shoulder Bag
$545 via Nordstrom
Meanwhile, Heidi Klum is in Milan, and here she is leaving her hotel with a simple, fuss-free black leather bag from Elizabeth & James. I should point out that this bag looks markedly better when carried than it does in head-on product pics, which give you no real sense of the bag's true appeal.
Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag
I feel like Jessica Biel has been deliberately hidden away from us ever since she wed Justin Timberlake and had a baby, but here she is, outside the Today show studios in NYC with a silver Chanel flap. Jessica is currently making the press rounds to promote her new, highly informative and hilarious sex-ed video series on Funny or Die.
Coach Swagger Bag
$595 via Coach
Here's Aussie model Jessica Hart, leaving a spa in NYC with an attractive tri-color Coach Swagger Bag. Coach has been marketing this as its new big thing for a few months now; have any of you succumbed to Swagger fever? (It might be a thing!) If so, what's your review of the Coach Swagger Bag?
Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag
Kelly Rowland was recently spotted doing her grocery shopping at Bristol Farms in LA, the grocer to the stars. She's carrying a little red Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag, as one does.
Mansur Gavriel Mini Backpack
Shop Mansur Gavriel via MATCHESFASHION.COM
Actress Naomi Watts was seen hustling around NYC on her birthday with a chic black Mansur Gavriel Mini Backpack. Naomi dresses the part of New Yorker far better than so than other stars. And by that I mean she never leaves the house without this one blazer.
Salvatore Ferragamo Fiamma Bag
$2,250 via Saks
And lastly but not leastly, here's Reese Witherspoon, looking about 80% more like a Los Angelista than she usually does. She's carrying one of her Salvatore Ferragamo Fiamma Bags. This Fiamma has received a lot more love from Reese than the vast majority of other bags in her collection.
