Celebrity Bag Watch

Keeping up with the celeb trends isn’t easy, so the Haute Market Fashion 411 is here to help. Today we’re taking a look at celeb handbags and bringing you a summary of our faves.

First, remember that a handbag isn’t just utilitarian, it’s also an important accessory. In other words, moms…ditch the diaper bag after a year (or earlier). Or keep the diaper bag for diapers and carry a small chic bag for you.

Second, a bag can coordinate with your outfit, but please don’t play the matchy-match game. Mix it up a bit.

Animal instincts: many celebs are toting bags in crocodile and snake-skin looks right now. I love the texture of crocodile as it adds some dimension to an otherwise plain bag. Many of these bags are large and in charge. I can’t imagine what these celebs need to carry in there, or that some of them even have the strength to hold such a large bag..but whatever.

Handbags are now incorporating the belted look. As if Jimmy’s shoes weren’t to die for, now he has equally amazing handbags. This slick red leather bag, Riki, is a mere $1525, a lot less than some of Choo’s other beautys.

Closer to my price range (but still out of it) is this Adrienne Vittadini bag in subtle gray, priced in the mid $200’s.

You can get more affordable versions of these bag styles at the Haute Market shopping party this Wednesday!
