I look at celeb pics year-round, so I know that when celebrities bust out the floppy spring hats and the floral prints, celebrity beach pics are never far behind. (Also, I know this because I am a human being, and not just because I am some unofficial celebrity behavior and tracking expert. Much like celebrities, human beings also enjoy floppy hats and trips to the beach in quick succession.)
The weather was uniformly gorgeous on both coasts last week, and celebs celebrated by basking in the extremely flattering sunlight with some truly beautiful handbags. Unless they were in airports, which are perfectly climate controlled, which is also nice if you're in to that sort of thing.
Proenza Schouler Fringe PS1 Pouch
$1,425 via Saks
Hilary Duff was recently spotted shopping in West Hollywood with a grey fringed Proenza Schouler PS1. She's newly single, she looks fantastic, she has great bags, her new show Younger is doing really well and she has an active Tinder profile. Hilary's living the dream, basically.
Tory Burch Ella Tote
$195 via Saks
Here's Joy Behar, leaving ABC Studios with a logo-branded Tory Burch tote. Rumors are flying that Barbara Walters wants Joy back on The View, which would probably be a good idea, because I can't actually name a single host who hasn't already left or been canned in the last two years. What are they even doing on The View right now?
Givenchy Mini Pandora Floral Bag
$1,540 via Saks
Don't mind her, it's just Liv Tyler taking a stroll with a friend in the West Village, looking amazing and not even trying. I am completely enamored with Liv's floral Givenchy mini (and everything else that bears Givenchy's magnolia print), and she seems quite partial to it as well. We saw her carrying the same bag just last month.
Hermès Birkin Bag
Paps caught up with Maria Shriver at LAX, and as you can see, she's carrying a nice leather/toile combo Hermès Birkin. Maria has a kept a somewhat low profile in the last few years, but right now, she's actively campaigning for the government to mandate paid maternity leave. Keep fighting the good fight, Maria!
Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag
Modern Family's Sarah Hyland was spotted coming out of the Good Day New York studios with a ladylike Christian Dior Lady Dior. You can't see them here, but her blue patent leather Jimmy Choo Anouk Pumps were also quite lovely.
Bally Paula Python Bag
$4,595 via Bally
Here's Sofia Vergara, leaving an appearance on the Howard Stern Show with a gorgeous python bag from Bally. That's right, this is what Sofia Vergara wears to appear on the radio. Sofia is making the press rounds to promote Hot Pursuit, her new buddy comedy with Reese Witherspoon.
Stella McCartney Falabella Bag
$1,195 via mytheresa.com
It's Stella McCartney carrying Stella McCartney at Heathrow Airport. This is the best thing I've seen since Tom Ford carrying Tom Ford at LAX.
Taraji P. Henson
Chanel Boy Bag
It's Chanel bags all the way for Cookie. Here's Taraji P. Henson at LAX with a beautiful burgundy Chanel Boy Bag. The good news is that "The Many Bags of Taraji P. Henson" is probably coming soon. The bad news (or the even better news, depending on how you feel about Chanel) is that it will be 96% Chanel.
