Plus: mystery bags galore!
You know it's basically fall when they start screening models for the big Victoria's Secret runway show that airs every year around Thanksgiving. Aspiring Angels have started showing up en masse to the go-sees in NYC, and they've brought their best bags with them. Models in this lot always come prepared with a designer handbag that conveys a certain level of prestige. After this, there will of course be call-backs. And we still have the tail end of the Venice Film Festival to boot! This all adds up two to three weeks' worth of truly primo bag-watching.

Gigi Hadid carried this red Versace Top Handle while out and about in NYC. I basically had this exact outfit in middle school (minus the Versace) and someday we'll do a "Who Wore It Better?" JK, those photos have all been destroyed.
It's the most model-tastic time of the year! Here's Malaika Firth, heading into the go-sees for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show with a Burberry Rucksack. Prepare for an oncoming flood on NYC model pics.
Naomi Watts has had a slew of well received red carpet moments at the Venice Film Festival. Here she is during a moment of downtime, posing with a white mystery bag.
Natasha Sirotina also attended the VS go-sees recently, and she brought along a Gucci Marmont Bag. Not everyone who does the go-sees makes it to the runway show, of course, which makes me sad, even though I only pick favorites based on their bag choices.
And we'll round out this post with yet another mystery bag! Salma Hayek's picks are always from one of Kering's brands because her husband owns it, but we don't recognize this particular bag. Alexander McQueen or Stella McCartney, perhaps?
