Paris Hilton’s Marc Jacobs Cameron handbag

Paris Hilton’s Marc Jacobs Cameron handbag, marc jacobs handbagTo say the least, I’m not usually one to fawn over Paris Hilton’s fashion choices. But the girl does have a decent bag collection, and for spring, she’s added this Marc Jacobs Cameron handbag, in two different colors — this white and a pale blue. The Cameron seems to be a spring exclusive, an elaboration of Marc Jacob’s Sweet Punk line of last year. If you’re interested in the Cameron, contact your local Marc Jacobs boutique.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Prada fairy bag

Jennifer Love Hewitt Prada fairy bag, fairy handbag, prada handbag,Finally we have spotted a famous celebrity carrying the famous Prada fairy handbag. Jennifer Love Hewitt has been keeping a low profile lately but she obviously has not been out of the fashion loop — check out the gorgeous and coveted Prada Fairy bag on her arm! Truth be told, I haven’t looked at a Prada bag with lust since my college days when I scrimped my work-study money for the Prada Campus Bag. But Prada definitely caught my attention with this work of art. While it’s a structured bag, you won’t believe how supple the leather actually is, and the colors in the picture don’t do justice to the vibrant hues of this Fairy Bag in real life. If you’d like to get your hands on one, call the Prada boutiques… with about $2,300 in hand — a small price to pay for a masterpiece!

Pamela Anderson’s Petra Bottega Veneta purse

Pamela Anderson’s been on a roll this past week. First she was spotted with a beautiful Old Petra Bottega Veneta purse, and now here she is, going through the airport in Berlin with an Hermes HAC. Did Pam upgrade her stylist? When I think Bottega and Hermes, quite frankly, Pamela Anderson may just be the last person I associate the brands with. But nonetheless, here she is, toting this gorgeous, $9,000 Haut a Courrois. The pictures aren’t close enough for me to make out the specific color and leather, but I’m going to venture a guess that it’s a 50cm. What’s next, Pam? Perhaps she’ll surprise her with Chanel?

Jessica Simpson' Jimmy Choo Saba handbag

We all know that Jessica Simpson is one of THE celebrity queens when it comes to designer handbags. The girl’s got it going on, that’s for sure, and she wears everything from Bulga to Fendi to her own line. Her latest purse is the Jimmy Choo Saba, which we have covered here at It’s a large purse, and it makes a statement. I thought it might overpower someone as tiny as Jessica, but I think it looks fantastic, especially in the rich ivory color. There’s something almost organic about this bag, and I guess it’s the great color and horn detailing. Jessica wore it with jeans and a few layered tops, and I can’t think of a better way to let the bag shine.

Rihanna's Kooba’s Heather Clutch.

Here’s Rihanna at the Matthew Williamson show, sporting Kooba’s Heather Clutch. The black day clutch which is lined with yellow, bright blue and magenta trim is a severe nod to the ’80s, which is just what Rihanna’s style is the majority of the time. I am not a huge fan of the purse, but Rihanna is rocking it with confidence and the pop of color (from the trim) looks great with her tailored black ensemble.

Hilary Duff's Yves Saint Laurent Downtown bag

This couple is so darn cute, it’s almost unbearable. Hilary Duff was spotted the other night at MSG, cheering on her beau and yesterday, they were out and about shopping. Hilary was looking cute and casual in Uggs, her usual big hoop earrings and a still-so-fabulous Yves Saint Laurent Downtown bag. Hilary’s medium downtown is a squishy leather purse with side zip closures and a front pocket.
With this bag hillary duffs looks fashionably trendy and stylish she really brings out the best with this bag. This celebrity loves designer handbag specially the most fashionable style.

Cameron Diaz’s Burberry Knight purse

designer handbagdesigner handbag I’m not the jealous type, but I must admit seeing Cameron Diaz’s insanely cool Burberry Knight purse makes a little green with envy. This silver-studded black leather handbag is one of the hottest and hippest bags on the market right now - it’s sexy, modern, and totally bad-ass. It definitely adds a high-fashion element to Cameron’s simple but chic outfit. Oh, and that Louis Vuitton suitcase she’s also got by her side? Now she’s just showing off. Photos from

Halle Berry Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Tote

Halle Berry is working it in this short black dress and matching Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Tote, in black croc, no less. We don’t often see the Bond bombshell sporting designer purses when she’s out and about - she tends to favor a more casual style - but the lady knows how to pull an outfit together. My one quibble is that the Yves Saint Laurent handbag is a bit dressy and glam for the cotton dress, but hey, she can get away with a lot.
This is an elegant handbag. The stitching creates the texture. The handle is long enough to be used as a shoulder sling bag. It can also be carried on the arm.The glossy finish means it can be used for dual functions. As a day bag, it affords plenty of room to tote around necessary supplies like makeup, a bottle of water or even a set of clothes.

The dark color enables the bag to be versatile and coordinate with a wide range of colors in any wardrobe.

Julia Roberts Hermes Birkin

I adore Julia Roberts for her very down to earth style, but sometimes, I wish she’d up the glam quotient a bit. Well, if this pic of her is any indication, Julia was listening! Aside from the auburn hair (fabulous!), dangling from Ms. Roberts’ arm is none other than the holy grail of all bags, the Hermes Birkin. Which one, you wonder? Being a worshiper at Hermes myself (and the owner of a few lovely Birkins), I can decisively say that the candy swinging from Julia’s arm is a 40cm Vert Olive with gold hardware. Of course you know that Birkins are hard to come by and there’s a whole process by which most people go through to attain even an invitation to place an order for this very coveted bag. There are, of course, ways around this, but even then, you’d still have to hand over a large chunk of your yearly income. So for now, let’s just drool over Julia’s Birkin, shall we?

Camel-colored Valentino by Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale’s looking uncharacteristally super-casual in this pic, but just because she’s schlepping around in jeans and a baggy tee doesn’t mean that she can’t bring out the big guns, namely a gorgeous camel-colored Valentino Histoire Purse. Also a big hit with Angelina Jolie and her daughter Zahara, this elegant purse features braided details and front pockets that offer plenty of storage space. A handbag this sophisticated is destined to stand the test of time, making it a great investment piece (hint, hint). It almost makes you overlook the fact that Kate’s wearing what appear to be 90s-era bleached jeans.

Hayden Panettiere Kooba Elisha

Its soft, almost unstructured shape makes it perfectly Californian laid back, and the knotted bow detail adds visual interest without being obnoxious. Hayden’s Kooba Elisha metallic version is sold out everywhere, but you can pick up the same bag in a variety of colors and leathers, including the white one (perfect for spring and summer!)

Dior Samourai 1947

Christian Dior’s Autumn Winter 2008 Collection Show in Paris was attended by Lucy Liu, decked out in head to toe Dior. She wore stark white: a body conscious skirt suit and a fabulous white frame bag: the Dior Samourai 1947. This handbag comes in several incarnation, each one more intricate than the next. This one is rendered in white leather and suede, with a pleated design to add depth. The hardware is done in modern but classic tortoiseshell, a warm counter-balance for the coolness of the white. The design channels a vibe that is both prim and strong, reminiscent of Jackie O’s and Audrey Hepburn’s style –certainly fitting for Ms. Liu as well as her Cashmere Mafia character, Mia. To get the look, you’ll have to drop a pretty penny. About $3,600 worth, to be more exact. Call the Dior boutiques for more information.

Courtney Cox Chanel tote

Out and about before her show returns to the tube, Courtney Cox looks laid back and relaxed in her black lace top, denim, flats and the requisite posh handbag: a Chanel tote. Lacking the proper pictures, I can’t identify whether Courtney’s bag is the older Cerf or the newer version, the Executive. Both have the same shape, a removable middle compartment that doubles as a zip bag, and come with either gold or silver hardware on the front (very discreet interlocking C’s or the Mademoiselle toggle) depending on the season, but the older Cerf snaps close while the newer Executive has a flap closure on the inside. In a world gone mad with logos and monograms, this very discreet looking Chanel refreshingly goes against the grain. Of course, it comes in two accommodating sizes to fit your needs and style

Chanel quilted purse

Looks like Penelope Cruz has arrived in LA to support her man (Javier Bardem) at the Oscars, and she’s brought one very chic Chanel quilted purse with her. Although I’m not digging the pairing of the black and white handbag with the navy houndstooth coat (though both are great individually), Penelope never looks bad. We’ve seen plenty of celebs carry quilted Chanels this season, but Penelope’s stands out thanks to its white trim and double C logo. Then again, when doesn’t Penelope Cruz stand out?
