We all admire celebrities for a wide variety of reasons including their work, their lifestyle, their charitable contributions and yes, their cutting edge fashion choices. Because celebrities have access to the latest designs first, we watch their trend setting style to get a glimpse of what will be hot for summer. Here is a just a short glimpse of some of the latest handbags… and the celebrities who love them!
At Spring 2014 Paris Fashion Week, actress Salma Hayek Pinault wore a Stella McCartney Faux Napa Flap Clutch to the Stella McCartney’s show. A shoulder bag version of stylish clutch is also available.
Louis Vuitton recently reintroduced a classic, the Lockit bag, which was originally introduced in the 1950’s. These colorful bags are available in a wide range of colors and feature gold hardware complete with — you guess it — a small gold lock near the zipper. Many top celebrities are truly embracing this elegant bag. Actress Reese Witherspoon has been spotted carrying the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag in Bright Pink.
As a new fashion blogger (and a major lover of all things couture), Marjorie Harvey attended Paris Fashion Week wearing her Fendi Crocodile Peekaboo Bag. This small bag features bright gold hardware against shiny crocodile leather and offers just enough room to bring along all the essentials in a stylish and oh-so-chic way.
Australian-born rapper and model Iggy Azalea is not only making her way up music charts around the world, she is also making a splash at Paris Fashion Week wearing the large Victor & Rolfe Bombette Bag. The handles on this unique bag are an extension of the sturdy gold hardware found on either side (but with padding at the top), making the bag easy to carry.
Actress and entrepreneur Jessica Alba is proving, with this Prada Madras Tote bag that orange is, indeed, the new black. The bag was crafted as part of Prada’s Made In Project, wherein Prada’s creative director collaborates with designers the world over to create unique new looks. This Madras Tote bag is made with goat’s leather from India’s Madras region (hence the name).
It’s no secret that celebrities and fashionistas everywhere regard the Hermes Birkin Bag as the signature luxury handbag (as this bag once held a nearly unheard of six year waiting list). The gorgeous Birkin bag is available in a wide range of colors, from black to gray to turquoise to red and–as seen here on Kim Kardashian–canary yellow. Celebrities spotted with the Hermes Birkin bag include Victoria Beckham, Katie Holmes, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rachel Zoe and Pamela Anderson, among others.
Here, we’re not sure which we are more drawn to–Nicky Hilton’s Balenciaga handbag or the adorable pooch who photo bombed the picture (in the best way!). This Balenciaga Classic City Bag features matte black hardware, hand-stitched handles at the top and tassels on the zippers. This bag is available in an entire rainbow of colors and is the perfect compliment for day or evening wear.
