fall is fast approaching, and possibly for that very reason, celebs are getting a little adventurous with their handbag choices. This roundup is pretty evenly split between classic black leather bags from Fendi, Chanel and The Row that could survive any season, as well as bling-tastic selections from Miu Miu, Bulgari and others that are very now. The majority of the latter may not be anywhere to be found by this time next year, but nonetheless, they leave a long lasting impression.
Versace Palazzo empire Bag
$2,955 through farfetch.com
As you’re probably aware, Brazil has summoned all of its native supermodels back to the motherland for the Rio Olympics. Here’s Alessandra Ambrosio, heading to NBC’s set with a Versace Palazzo empire Bag. The new versions with contrast piping are very hot with celebs, all of a sudden.
Fendi Peekaboo Bag
$6,000 through Saks
Ashlee Simpson isn’t at the Olympics this week, but she is hitting the gym in studio City, CA, which is…almost the same, right? She’s carrying a large black leather Fendi Peekaboo Bag.
The Row hunting Bag
$4,200 through Saks
Paps caught up with Kelly Osbourne walking her lil’ pup in NYC. (Sort of. I know for a fact that Pomeranians have precious little stamina for walks.) Kelly is carrying a black leather The Row hunting Bag.
Bulgari Serpenti Bag
Here’s Olivia Culpo, leaving Craig’s with an eye-catching ivory Bulgari Serpenti Bag. That little snake-head clasp always jumps out at you.
Miu Miu Dahlia Bag
$3,380 through Saks
Rita Ora was recently found out and about in nyc with this heavily embellished Miu Miu Dahlia Bag. If you’re not a fan of lavish detailing, you might be pleased to know that there is also a non-embellished version of this bag.
Chanel classic Flap Bag
Here’s Dutch supermodel Romee Strijd, eyeing the clasp of her Chanel classic Flap Bag as she ambles around LA with her boyfriend. I am barely aware of Romee’s existence, and yet she is already a Victoria’s secret Angel. I’m guessing we’ll all be hearing much much more about her in the near future.
Louis Vuitton SC Bag
Selena Gomez wore this ensemble to the Melbourne Airport. (I so rarely long for the catty glory days of E!’s fashion Police.) She’s carrying a bright white Louis Vuitton SC Bag, which seems to be the only thing that survived her long flight intact.
Victoria Beckham half Moon Bag
$2,500 through Net-a-Porter
Finally, here’s Victoria Beckham, carrying a new version of a popular Victoria Beckham bag at JFK in NYC, because why would you ever miss a single opportunity to carry a bag bearing your name? Wieso den? This is one of the smaller versions of this attractive design. An oversized take on bag version is also on offer.
