A lot of this week’s celeb handbag picks just make you want to reach out and touch them. But, we strongly advise against that. There’s no telling what Iggy Azalea will do if you randomly walk up and stroke her Fendi bag. I doubt her security detail will be very sympathetic to your cries of, “But it looks just like the back of a wild pony!” As always, when it comes to celebrities and their very expensive handbags, please keep your hands to yourself.
Givenchy Pandora Bag
$2,990 via Barneys
I promise you, Amanda Seyfried does occasionally carry bags that are not Givenchy. Or, at least, she used to, and we have proof in The Many Bags of Amanda Seyfield. That’s not to say this studded Pandora that she’s carrying at LAX isn’t amazing; it’s just a bit redundant, in the grand scheme of things.
Fendi Peekaboo Bag
Shop Fendi via Saks
Here’s Iggy Azalea, who could almost be anyone in her Levi’s jeans jacket and not-too-flashy designer sunnies. Except, of course, she’s carrying that ridiculously exotic and eye-catchingly furry Fendi Peekaboo Bag. It might as well be a sign that says “PAPARAZZI ASSEMBLE!”
Jada Pinkett Smith
Maison Margiela Metal Handle Satchel
Shop Maison Margiela via Shopbop
Jada Pinkett Smith was also spotted at LAX this week carrying an ultra sleek grey Maison Margiela Metal Handle Satchel. Yes, Maison Margiela was formerly Maison Martin Margiela. They dropped the Martin some time in the recent past, as if to say, “Hey, we’re rebranding a bit, maybe you should start paying attention to us again?” Maybe we will, Maison Margiela. Maybe we will.
Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag
$5,600 via Louis Vuitton
I’m having more and more trouble believing this is just Karlie Kloss, “out and about”, living her life in NYC. She always looks too good and, even more damning, she smiles too much. This is not what New Yorkers do, and I find it all very suspicious. Except for Karlie’s bright yellow Louis Vuitton bag; that seems like an authentic Karlie Kloss handbag choice.
Chanel Velvet Boy Bag
Here’s Khloé Kardashian, sporting a new, blonder ‘do and a bright blue Chanel Velvet Boy Bag at the Ouai Haircare launch party in LA. These little velvet Chanels have been very popular recently; we just saw Dorothy Wang carrying a bright yellow Velvet Boy mere days ago.
Fendi Petite 2Jours Bag
$1,950 via Saks
Actress Margot Robbie was recently spotted arriving at JFK with her boyfriend on one arm and a black Fendi Petite 2Jours Bag on the other. She’s in NYC to promote her new film Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
Alexander Wang Mini Rockie Bag
$595 via Nordstrom
Here’s British model Neelam Gill, hanging out at a shoot in London with an Alexander Wang mini and giving every passerby a serious case of braid envy. My hair is almost as long as Neelam’s, but it does not look nearly as glorious in braids.
MCM Berlin Box Bag
$1,295 via Bloomingdale’s
STOP THE PRESSES, Nicky Hilton is carrying an MCM bag! This is huge. MCM is now officially Hilton-approved. I didn’t even think Nicky was that into logos, though I suppose she owns just as many Louis Vuitton bags as most women in her demographic.
