Celebrity Style: Random Celebrity Handbag Sightings

Celebrities have been out and about which gives us plenty to look at in terms of arm candy. Let's examine the ladies in question for this installment of random celebrity handbag sightings. Starting us off is Katherine Heigl. The Gray's Anatomy star looked relaxed as she ran errands recently. Of course, the fashionable celebrity combines casual with designer very well. Notice the gorgeous cream-colored shoulder bag she's toting. Any guesses who designed it? It's from none other than "I'm Not A Plastic Handbag" fame, Anya Hindmarch. The Elrod Naplak Shoulder Bag is currently sold out on-line, and I can see why. The large 17.5 x 15.5 x 6 design is made from leather and features a shoulder strap with Anya's "signature" hook attachments in addition to a front logo plate, weighted tab closure, rear zip pocket and textile-lined interior with zip and patch pockets, a cell phone pouch and key hook. The 'Elrod' is a chic bag with a functional side that's appealing to busy fashionistas. Katherine chose well and so can you. Contact Anya Hindmarch (212-750-3974 in NYC) or (310-271-9707 in L.A.) for availability. The cost - $1185.

Jessica Simpson causes a stir everywhere she goes. She's pictured here walking through the airport carrying two Louis Vuitton bags and each served their own distinct purpose. Her Monogram canvas Beverly GM handbag, which measures $1410 (via eLUXURY) and measures an ample 17 x 10 x 7.5, features LV's signature monogram canvas trimmed in natural cowhide and accented with brass hardware. The padded dual shoulder straps, top flap with push-lock closure, side snaps for expansion, rear patch pocket, protective bottom feet and lined interior with a large flap pocket, cell phone pouch and key ring round out this well-designed LV style. While Jessica loves Louis Vuitton, the depth of her appreciation for the French design house is more ardently expressed in her second bag. The Sac Chien 50 dog carrier, gifted to Ms. Simpson by former husband Nick Lachey along with her precious pooch Daisy, measures a roomy 20 x 13 x 9 and is priced at a hefty $1850. Monogram canvas, cowhide trim, brass-tone hardware, rolled leather top handles, dual zipped top, side roll-up flap with fasteners and mesh window, front/back reinforcing straps for a stable, structured shape and a forgiving washable lining make this carrier the Cadillac of puppy gear.

Finally, we arrive at this week's truly random handbag sighting. While Kate Moss looks annoyingly chic as always, I was more interested in the black satchel carried by her almost out of view friend, assistant, etc (?). The simple yet well-made bag in question is from Mulberry's latest collection. The Mabel Satchel Bag, available in a myriad of colors, finishes and corresponding price points, measures a modest 11.5 x 9.5 x 4.5. The soft and absolutely delicious goat leather exterior is accented by minimal gold-tone hardware and features dual top handles, front side-by-side zip pockets, wrap-around buckled strap closure, interior and exterior open pockets for additional storage and an attached mirror ideal for the vain (and practical) fashionista in us all. Nab the understated Mabel Satchel Bag for $1200 via Mulberry.
