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.
Saint Laurent Loulou Mini Bag
$1,150 via Net-a-Porter
Givenchy Pandora Box Bag
$2,290 via Nordstrom
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.
Chanel Flap Bag

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 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.
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.
