Kate Upton has been photographed in the airport in NYC carrying a blue crocodile Celine luggage tote on her way to the annual Style Awards. She has been very busy lately being named Model of the Year. She is also gracing the cover of Vanity Fair giving us Marilyn Monroe in the issue that celebrates the 100th anniversary of the famous magazine. Although most Celine croc bags are actually croc-embossed leather, Kate prefers the real deal, carrying an authentic croc skin bag. The actual price of this bag isn’t known, but to give you an idea, the python version retails for $5,600. The exclusive authentic croc version is most likely several thousands more. This is an example of a beautiful celebrity carrying a beautifully designed bag.
The luxurious Celine luggage tote is a favorite among many other in-style celebs these days. Style icons, fashionistas, designers and talented actors are carrying different varieties of the Celine luggage tote this season. Nicky Hilton, Kourtney Kardashian, Leighton Meester, Nicole Richie, Jennifer Garner, Oprah Winfrey, and Kim Kardashian all carry the distinct bag. Also Fergi, Alessandra Ambrosio, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Simpson, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Dakota Fanning, Mary Kate Olsen and Kirsten Dunst each take their bags everywhere they go. These are some of the most fashion forward and stylish celebrities that have been photographed multiple times carrying their luxurious Celine luggage totes.
This polished leather luggage tote by Celine comes in many different varieties with suede lining and expandable side panels. The bags are open entry with double handles. They have a front zipper pocket and a zipper pocket on the inside as well. There are protective feet on the underside of the bag to keep the bag from wear and tear. This bag is exclusively made in Italy and is 13 inches high, 14 inches wide and 9.5 inches deep. It comes in all styles and colors with many different designs for panels and straps. Most bags are leather that will break in and stretch over time, creating a soft and comfortable bag to adorn your arm. Every bag comes with a dust bag and card.
Celine was founded in 1945 and was initially a children’s shoe line. Designer and namesake Celine Vipiana designed a ready-to-wear line beginning in the 1960’s. Now, creative director and fashion designer Phoebe Philo, who took over the Parisian design house in 2008, designs and produces the most popular and usually sold out bags, including the luggage tote. Authentic Celine pre-owned bags can be found on the website Portero.
Celine stores are located in America, Asia, Europe, Japan and the Middle East. In the US, the stores are located on Madison Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman on 5th Avenue and Barney’s, also on Madison Avenue in New York City. There is also a store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and one in the Design District in the Moore Building in Miami.
It is obvious that Kate Upton struts her stuff on the runway, but also through the airport in style. But what makes it an even better thing is that she carries her blue Celine crock luggage tote as she goes. This is an example of model perfection on a beautiful style icon who has just been crowned the title of Model of the Year.
