Celebrity Style: Random Celebrity Handbag Sightings

The "Under 30" set of celebrities sure know how to show off their eclectic choice of arm candy. First up is 'Heroes' star Hayden Panetierre. The newly-legal starlet prepares to jet away with a host of travel bags and an interesting MARC by Marc Jacobs Patent Utility Satchel. The blonde-colored version Hayden is toting features dual top handles, zip top closure and a large front zip pocket with logo embossing. Not my favorite MARC bag, but it's $388 via Bergdorf Goodman so the damage isn't too bad.

Let's focus on sweet Hilary Duff next. Now that she's finally moved on after her split with singer Joel Madden, Hilary seems more relaxed, and her style reflects this new "Life is good" attitude. The lovely singer/actress was certainly putting her peppy side on display with the Goldenbleu Mercedes Patent Clutch. The well-appointed clutch, measuring 12 x 8, is made of patent leather and boasts subtle pleating throughout as well as a gold-tone metal frame top and kiss-lock closure. Don't let the vintage-looking design fool you, though. This clutch is packing a punch with its' suede-lined interior and host of functional features including zip and patch pockets, pen slot and key hook. Steal Hilary's fresh look for $350 via Shopbop.

We wrap up our random celebrity handbag sightings with my favorite celebrity handbag collector, Christina Aguilera. Why is she my favorite, you may be wondering? Simple, really. The girl LOVES Balenciaga. I can just imagine her closet and its' endless rows of gorgeous bbags. The maybe-pregnant songstress recently acquired my current handbag obsession - the Balenciaga Moon Bag. This bag is absolutely stunning in person. While its' goatskin leather, patent leather trim and funky gold-tone hardware give the 'Moon Bag' its' Balenciaga "edge", classic lines and sophisticated design provide this creation with an elegance that has been lacking from Balenciaga as of late. I'm afraid the 'Moon Bag' will have to remain an obsession for the time being as its' $2600 price tag is too hefty for me to tackle any time soon. If you have the means to scoop up this beautiful piece, call Balenciaga NY (212)206-0872 or visit your local Neiman Marcus or Saks to inquire about availability. Thank goodness I have photos of Christina to tide me over. Where's my "drool" bucket when I need it?...
