Chanel hosted an event at the beginning New York Fashion Week, so it probably comes as no surprise that this post is exactly 50% Chanel. Guests were clearly expected to wear/carry as much Chanel as humanly possible. This is generally the rule of thumb for most designer-hosted to-dos, but it seems like it may be contractually required at a Chanel party. Also, one of these Chanel bags is not like the others. One of these Chanel bags costs $13,000. Hint: it’s the one with the least bag real estate.
Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag
$3,943 via Vestiaire Collective
Chanel threw a fine jewelry party at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC during NYFW. The party honored Keira Knightley, the latest face for Chanel’s fine jewelry department. Fellow Brit Alexa Chung wore full Chanel for the occasion, of course. She’s carrying an embellished Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag.
Chanel Camera Minaudiere
British model/DJ Harley Viera-Newton also attended with her new figural Chanel Camera Minaudiere. The price tag for this novelty clutch apparently hovers somewhere around $13K at retail.
Jimmy Choo Rebel Bag

Here’s Jessica Alba, leaving an appearance on Colbert with a metallic, embossed leather Jimmy Choo Rebel Bag. Jessica has been a huge fan of this style for ages. She carried a black studded version of the same bag to NYFW way back in 2013.
Chanel Drawstring Bag
$1,937 via Vestiaire Collective
Kelly Rowland was recently spotted leaving one of LA’s JuanJuan Salons with her latest fave, this navy blue Chanel Drawstring Bag.
Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote
Here’s a summer-ready Kyle Richards, hanging out at LAX with Lisa Vanderpump. She’s carrying a classic Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote. These have been less visible in the last couple years, but our love for the Neverfull has never wavered.
Hermès Ostrich Birkin
Laverne Cox made sure paps got a load of her exotic orange Hermès Ostrich Birkin as she left The Nice Guy. This seems like a serious upgrade from her usual Hermès pick, the Kelly.
Gucci Sylvie Bag
$2,490 via Gucci
Here’s a dreamy-eyed Salma Hayek, living her best life while cruising around Beverly Hills with her adoring husband Francois Henri-Pinault and her new Gucci Sylvie Bag.
Soo Joo Park
Finally, here’s a parting shot of model Soo Joo Park attending that fancy Chanel shindig with a black and gold Chanel Minaudiere.
