This Week, Celebs Loved Hermès, Dior and High-Waisted Denim

Our cultural relationship with high-waisted denim is extremely complicated. And yet, every few seasons, high-waisted denim creeps back towards relevancy. Like many trends, it looks better on celebrity bodies than it ever will on the rest of us. I am taking a hard stance against denim with a waistline that rests above the navel, but I can actually, whole-heartedly endorse most of this week’s celebrity handbag picks. Handbags fit everyone. They are the great unifier.

Ashley Madekwe
Saint Laurent Loulou Mini Bag
$1,150 via Net-a-Porter

English actress Ashley Madekwe was spotted out and about in LA with this adorable Saint Laurent Loulou Mini Bag.

Candace Swanepoel
Givenchy Pandora Box Bag
$2,290 via Nordstrom

Meanwhile, in NYC, supermodel Candace Swanepoel carried this gold-studded Givenchy Pandora Box Bag while out getting coffee with her mom.

Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto is making the press rounds in NYC to promote her latest film Guerilla, and we have no idea who makes her tote! Your best guess is very welcome, as always.

Hilary Duff
Chanel Flap Bag
Shop Chanel via Vestiaire Collective

Younger has resumed filming in NYC, and that means we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of Hilary Duff and her fabulous bags. (We’ve missed you, Hilary!) Here she is heading to the set with a gorgeous burgundy Chanel Flap Bag. Hilary has kept a comparatively low profile between seasons, but you can see more of her recent handbag faves here.

Jordana Brewster
Hermès Birkin

Jordana Brewster is also on the promo trail this week, and she has brought one of her cherished Birkins along for the ride. Her love for Birkins is secondary to her love for the Hermès Evelyne, though.

Maria Menounos
Prada Double Tote
$2,600 via Neiman Marcus

Here’s Maria Menounos leaving LAX with a pristine black leather Prada Double Tote. Let us take a moment to marvel at Maria’s stretchy but not flash-transparent airport jumpsuit.

Dior Saddle Bag

Here’s a well-bundled Rhianna, out in NYC with her new favorite handbag, the Dior Saddle Bag. I am usually uniformly on board with all of Ri-Ri’s fashion choices, but wow, this look is complicated.

Tara Reid
Balenciaga Mini City Bag
$1,395 via Balenciaga

Finally, we have Tara Reid, engaging with paps outside of LAX. She’s carrying a little black Balenciaga Mini City Bag and a $12 airport sandwich.
