Paris Fashion Week is, in some ways, the Super Bowl of fashion. Its attendees have played hard all season to get there, and when they’ve arrived, they have to play harder still to come out on top. By “play harder,” we mean “wear increasingly fantastic and expensive things,” of course.

Another PFW has come and gone, and as we do every season, we took the liberty of trawling through the week’s photos to spot the shows’ famous attendees and the bags they carried to the shows. Enjoy the fruits of our labors below.

Adele Exarchopolous
Louis Vuitton Capucines BB Bag
$4,400 via Louis Vuitton

Let’s start our examination of Paris Fashion Week style with something extremely French: smoking a cigarette while walking into a fashion show.


Adriana Abascal
Louis Vuitton Twist Bag
$3,250 via Louis Vuitton

Adriana is not a news anchor, but if she were, I’d trust her implicitly based on appearance alone.


Aimee Song
Christian Dior Diorama Bag

Relatively few American fashion bloggers make the jump to go to the top-tier Paris shows, but Aimee was welcomed with open arms at Dior.


Aimee Song
Kenzo Tiger Paw Clutch
$605 via Shopbop

(She went to Kenzo, too.)


Alexandra Strizhenova
Chanel Suede Flap Shoulder Bag

It’s not just the children of American celebs who are beloved by Karl Lagerfeld; Alexandra is the 15-year-old daughter of a Russian TV host.


Alicia Vikander
Louis Vuitton Tote

This bag made its runway debut for Resort 2016, but we’re still not sure of the model name. If you know, holler at us in the comments.


Anna Dello Russo

Speaking of things I’m not sure of: some of the stuff hanging off ADR’s bags is Anya Hindmarch, but the bag itself? Maybe.


Anna Dello Russo
Chanel Brasserie Plate Clutch

The origins of this bag, on the other hand, are pretty clear.


Anna Dello Russo
Valentino B-Rockstud Striped Shoulder Bag

Anna sure does love that big fox tail.


Annabelle Wallis
Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag

As is traditional, Chanel entertained a bevy of actresses from across the continent.


Anne Sinclair
Ralph Lauren Soft Ricky Bag
$2,500 via Neiman Marcus

Karl Lagerfeld also welcomed French-American journalism Anne Sinclair, who carried one of the only American bags we’ll see today.


Aya Omasa
Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Mostly, PFW attendees stick to the French designers.


Caroline de Maigret
Chanel Calf Hair Boy Bag

We can’t blame them.


Catherine Deneuve
Louis Vuitton Tote

I can’t help but really like this new Vuitton bag, even if it looks a bit like a Birkin in certain details.


Catherine Deneuve
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag
$2,750 via Net-a-Porter

I wish Saint Laurent’s step-and-repeat hadn’t been so dark; one of the main pleasures of PFW is seeing the details of people’s outfits.


Céline Phantom Luggage Tote

Our photo agency wasn’t sure of this woman’s name, but she looked so good that we had to include her.


Chiara Ferragni
Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Chiara has been at Fashion Week since early September and it makes me tired just thinking about it.


Chiara Ferragni
Hermès Kelly Bag

She’s doing a good job of making it look glam to live out of a suitcase, though.


Chiara Ferragni
Louis Vuitton Twist Bag
$4,400 via Louis Vuitton

Still, I’m sure she’ll be glad to head home.


Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag

This is another instance in which we weren’t able to locate a name, but who could pass up that cheery pink Lady Dior?


Christina Pitanguy
Fendi Shearling Peekaboo Bag
$3,250 via Net-a-Porter

The $1,000 extra strap you see above isn’t available for another couple months, but, ya know, it’s good to be a well-known fashion personality.


Cressida Bonas
Christian Dior Diorama Bag

If I’m being totally honest, the only thing I know about Cressida is she used to date Prince Harry.


Elektra Kilbey
Chanel Box Bag

Elektra and her sister Miranda are singers known as Say Lou Lou, which makes them precisely the kind of people Karl Lagerfeld likes to populate his fashion shows with.


Elena Perminova
Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag

Fun fact I just learned about Elena: she was sentences to six years in Russian prison for dealing ecstasy under the pressure of a bad boyfriend as a teenager. Quite the rags-to-riches story, she is.


Elena Perminova
Prada Galleria Micro Tote
$1,250 via Bergdorf Goodman

Elena was rescued from jail after her father plead her case to Russian oligarch Alexander Lebedev, who is now Elena’s spouse.


Elizabeth Debicki
Miu Miu Snakeskin Mini Bag
Shop Miu Miu via Net-a-Porter

Elizabeth is another of those up-and-coming European actresses that PFW loves to invite.


Emilia Clarke
Christian Dior Lady Dior Micro Bag

Emilia, on the other hand, is not so up-and-coming; she’s firmly ensconced at Game of Thrones.


Esther Quek
Loewe Puzzle Bag
$2,690 via Neiman Marcus

I feel like Esther is exactly the target market for this Loewe design.


Eugenia Silva
Christian Dior Diorama Bag

Eugenia has been a working model for ages, but she’s not just a pretty face; she always has a law degree from the University of Madrid.


Gigi Hadid

If you recognize Gigi’s clutch, you know what to do.


Gigi Hadid
Rag & Bone Circle Bag
$550 via Shopbop

Chanel, Mansur Gavriel and Rag & Bone are all doing circle bags now. Nascent trend?


Hanne Gaby Odiele
Christian Dior Be Dior Micro Bag

Looks like Hanne Gaby has joined the ranks of those who have moved from the catwalk to the front row.


Helena Bordon
Christian Dior Diorissimo Bag

I would like to hold this bag in my hands and examine in closely.


Jada Pinkett Smith
Balmain Clutch

If you don’t understand why Jada is great, I highly suggest you see Magic Mike XXL. (Honestly, I highly suggest you see it either way.)


Jada Pinkett Smith
Chloé Faye Bag
Shop Chloé via Neiman Marcus


Janelle Monae

In my not-so-humble opinion, Janelle won Paris Fashion Week by a mile.


Janelle Monae
Anya Hindmarch Men at Work Georgiana Clutch
$995 via Net-a-Porter

Janelle was one of the few stars who strayed from the mandate of carrying bags from the brands who were hosting her.


Janelle Monae

We’re not sure who made this clutch, but Janelle may have made an exception for Chanel. (Who wouldn’t?)


Janelle Monae
Edie Parker Jean Stars Clutch
Shop Edie Parker via Neiman Marcus

Instead of Rockstuds, Janelle carried Edie Parker to Valentino.


Janelle Monae
Les Petits Joueurs Petit Diana Mondrian Bag
Shop Les Petits Joueurs via LUISAVIAROMA

Also, she took this little Mondrian-inspired bag to Stella McCartney.


Jelly Lin
Chanel Fur Boy Bag

I want to cuddle this bag.


Kate Foley
Mark Cross Grace Box Bag
$2,195 via

Uber-stylist Kate Foley has been carrying a ton of Mark Cross this fall.


Kaya Scodelario
Chanel Minaudiere

Kaya is also one of Karl’s young European actresses.


Kendall Jenner
Céline Nano Luggage Tote

This is Kendall’s favorite bag of all time.


Kendall Jenner
Givenchy Pandora Clutch
$670 via Saks

Givenchy outfitted both Kendall and her mom with this clutch for PFW.


Kendall Jenner
Kurt Geiger Croc London Tote
$350 via Kurt Geiger

One of the Kardashian-Jenners carrying an affordable bag? Preposterous.


Kendall Jenner
Roland Mouret Classico Bag
$550 via Roland Mouret

This one’s not too outrageous either.


Kiernan Shipka
Valentino Rockstud Clutch
Shop Valentino via Neiman Marcus


Kris Jenner
Givenchy Pandora Clutch
$670 via Saks

“Like mother, like daughter,” but, like, the other way around?


Kris Jenner
Hermès Crocodile Birkin

A thing I like about Kris Jenner is that I never have to puzzle over what it is she’s carrying. She doesn’t do “obscure.”


Kristina Bazan
Chloé Faye Bag
$1,950 via Barneys

The more I see the Faye, the more I love it. What a pretty bag.


Lala Rudge
Christian Dior Mini Diorama Bag

At this point, Brazilian blogger Lala is a fashion week fixture.


Lala Rudge
Louis Vuitton Capucines BB Bag
$4,400 via Louis Vuitton


Laura Bailey
Chanel Tweed Clutch

This isn’t the Laura Bailey who does voice-overs for anime movies. This is the other Laura Bailey. (Google is fascinating.)


Laura Neiva
Chanel Flap Bag

Laura is a Brazilian actress; Brazil’s emerging luxury market means more of its stars are making the trip to the European fashion weeks.


Leigh Lezark
Chanel Mosaic Boy Bag

Where there is a Chanel occasion, there too shall be Leigh Lezark.


Leigh Lezark
Chloé Suede Shoulder Bag
Shop Chloé via Neiman Marcus

And Chloé, too.


Leigh Lezark
Miu Miu Clutch
Shop Miu Miu via Net-a-Porter

Okay, I mean: Leigh goes to a lot of fashion shows.


Leigh Lezark
Valentino Rockstud Clutch
Shop Valentino via Neiman Marcus

Something I appreciate about Leigh is that she usually remembers to hold her bag where the photographers can see it. She’s been to enough of these things at this point to know how it goes.


Lily Donaldson
Saint Laurent Monogram Mini Bag
$1,990 via SSENSE

Lily has long been one of my favorite models; she’s just so…perfect-looking.


Lily-Rose Depp
Chanel Flap Clutch

Lily-Rose, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, already has her own Chanel eyewear campaign.


Margaret Zhang
Givenchy Lucrezia Bag
$2,250 via

I once had lunch with Margaret before she was famous. She was very nice! (Cool story, Amanda.)


Marie-Ange Casta
Chanel Flap Bag

As you might have guessed from her appearance and her attendance at a Chanel show, Marie-Ange is a French actress and model.


Marisa Berenson
Christian Dior Lady Dior Micro Bag

Not only is Marisa a legendary actress and model, but she’s a descendent of Elsa Schiaparelli.


Marjorie Harvey
Hermès Kelly Longue Crocodile Clutch

Marjorie is Steve Harvey’s wife, and she has an incredible, jaw-dropping collection of handbags. That’s all you need to know for right now.


Marjorie Harvey
Hermès Kelly Longue Crocodile Clutch

Marjorie brought no fewer than three different colors of this bag, all in croc, to Paris with her.


Marjorie Harvey
Hermès Kelly Longue Crocodile Clutch

I mean.


Marjorie Harvey
Hermès So Black Alligator Kelly Bag

She also brought this incredibly rare Kelly and carried it to Dior instead of Dior.


Marjorie Harvey
Louis Vuitton Twist Bag
$4,050 via Louis Vuitton

Marjorie appears to be having a better time than all of us.


Mica Arganaraz
Christian Dior Diorama bag

Models almost always have great bags. It’s one of the perks.


Miranda Kerr
Louis Vuitton Pete Malle Clutch
$6,600 via Louis Vuitton

Nicolas Ghesquiere has created a small army out of favorite guests during his brief tenure at Vuitton, and Miranda Kerr has been there the whole way.


Miranda Kerr
Louis Vuitton Tote

She also got one of the brand’s new totes, of course.


Miroslava Duma
Louis Vuitton Capucines BB Bag
$4,400 via Louis Vuitton

A sequined turtleneck and mom jeans: quite the getup.


Miroslava Duma
Louis Vuitton Capucines BB Bag
$4,400 via Louis Vuitton

Mira has been playing it a little less flashy this season; she carried her Capucines every time we spotted her.


Natalie Joos
Les Petits Joueurs Mini Alex Fur-Pom Bag
$1,070 via Neiman Marcus

This bag, on the other hand, is the opposite of “playing it a little less flashy.”


Razane Jammal
Chanel Minaudiere

Karl believes in having a truly multi-national front row; Razane is a Lebanese actress.


Christian Dior Crocodile Diorama Bag

Rihanna was at PFW, of course, but she didn’t pack her schedule with shows; instead, she went to Dior and then saw some sights with her family.


Christian Dior Diorama Bag

This was Rihanna’s outfit for a little shopping trip to the Dior flagship.


Christian Dior Lizard Diorama Bag

This look, on the other hand, was for the show itself.


Sabine Getty
Olympia Le-Tan Book Clutch
Shop Olympia Le-Tan via Net-a-Porter

Where there are fashion events, there are always recognizable last names.


Salma Hayek
Balenciaga Cable Flap Clutch
$1,335 via Balenciaga

I wonder if Salma ever gets annoyed that she can only go to shows for the brands owned by her husband’s company.


Salma Hayek

Probably not, I’m guessing.


Salma Hayek
Stella McCartney Falabella Studded Mini Bag
$960 via Saks

It could certainly be a lot worse.


Shanina Shaik
Louis Vuitton Monogram Keepall Bag

Fashion Week isn’t all glamour; much of it requires the drudgery of air travel.


Shin-hye Park
Chanel Box Clutch

I’d imagine it’s worth it to go to a Chanel show, though.


Sophie Charlotte
Louis Vuitton Twist Bag
$4,050 via Louis Vuitton

Sophie is another of the Brazilian celebs to make the rounds at Fashion Week.


Suki Waterhouse
Stella McCartney Falabella Mini Bag
$895 via Stella McCartney

Suki Waterhouse’s FW participation was mostly contained to London, but Stella McCartney is British, after all.


Susie Bubble
Prada Inside Bag
$3,450 via Bergdorf Goodman

Coat goals.


Tao Okamoto
Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Clutch
$5,200 via Louis Vuitton

What a lovely floral.


Taylor Hill
Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Information that will not surprise you: Taylor Hill is a model.


Taylor Hill
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote
$2,590 via

Models, of course, all seem to have one of these bags.


Thylane Blondeau
Chanel Mosaic Flap Bag

If this name sounds familiar to you, it’s because Thylane’s been a high-fashion model since she was literally four years old, with plenty of controversy along the way.
