50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels

The Many Bags of Supermodels

[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]

Models and great handbags go together like peanut butter and jelly. Some of our all-time favorite collection profiles have come at the hands of supers like Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss andAlessandra Ambrosio, and if there were a photo agency dedicated purely to documenting their daily outfits, we’d gladly delve into the handbag closets of even more models. Because there isn’t, though, we’ve decided to put together all that we could find from five of our favorite supers whose collections we’ve yet to dissect: Karlie KlossChrissy TeigenKate UptonAdriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel.

The results include over 50 gorgeous designer bag, including some super rare exotics (mostly courtesy of Ms. Upton, who seems to have used entire paychecks to buy things even most handbag lovers can barely dream of). The level to which these ladies are both genetically and sartorially blessed may cause a little bit of envy, but once you get past that, there’s certainly a lot of pretty going on below.

The Many Bags of Kim Kardashian

[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]

We’ve been waiting a long time to do this one, and finally, The Many Bags of Kim Kardashian has arrived. The controversial reality star’s bag collection is easily the biggest one we’ve ever dug through, and you might be a little bit surprised by what we found: a lot of fairly conservative choices among the seventy-plus bags we found, many of them used repeatedly over the span of years.

“Kim Kardashian” has practically become a synonym for the excessive vacuousness of fame, but when you get down to it, Kim seems to both really enjoy her handbag collection and choose its contents wisely and with considerable care. She also seems to buy a lot of her bags herself, instead of receiving endless freebies and carrying whatever brands will send her. Hermes very famously does not give freebies or discounts to celebs, and Kim has most certainly spent plenty of her wealth on the acquisition of little (and big) orange boxes. Time and again, I found bags she’s used in the past couple of months popping up in paparazzi pictures from 2009 and 2010, which is a much more judicious use of her handbag backlog than many of us can claim. I’ve never been a Kardashian hater (or a Kardashian lover; I am mostly ambivalent), but after spending a few hours putting these photos together, I wouldn’t mind having a cocktail with Kim. Or looking through her closet, at the very least.

The 10 Best Celebrity Bag Looks of Summer 2014

10 Best Celebrity Handbags Summer 2014

Celebs kept it surprisingly covered up and professional this summer (marvel at how many of these celebs are wearing blazers or leather jackets), so much so that I sort of longed for the rampant daisy dukes that came to define summer 2013. Alas, flagrant skin exposure was mainly limited to the midriff this year. Stars mostly played it safe, and let their big, beautiful handbags do the talking. With the sole exception, of course, of Taylor Swift, who moved to Tribeca and completely reinvented herself, style-wise and (apparently!) music-wise as well.

Two other summer 2013 trends that were noticeably absent from summer 2014: neons and minis. They’ve been wholly replaced this season by moderately sized bags in pale, muted tones or rich darks. Between all the blazers and the unseasonal hues, you’d hardly know it was summer at all, if not for the fact that almost every one of these celebs is wearing a fabulous pair of designer sunglasses. But while the outfits sometimes left something to be desired, the bags certainly did not. Take a gander at our picks for the best celeb bag choices of the season, and tell us what you carried this summer!

What Do You Think Of This Celine Handbag? Can You Tell It’s A Replica?

Other Brands

There are a lot of girls that want to buy an authentic Celine handbag and no matter how many guides they read, they still can’t tell the difference between a fake and Celine replica bag. The problem comes when they pay a lot of many for an authentic model and they receive a fake. Same happened with my friend, Amanda.

She thought she was buying an authentic Celine handbag from eBay so imagine her surprise when she found out that her bag is a fake…and not the best Celine bag replica either. The worst part is how she found out that she is the proud owner of a Celine replica bag.

Let’s listen to her story first:

“My dear Eva,

I run across your blog while I was searching how to spot a fake Celine bag. You’re probably wondering why. Well, a few weeks ago, I bought a Celine handbag from ebay but I bought it as an authentic model, not replica. I know some things about this brand but I must admit, I’m not an expert.

A few days ago, I went to a Celine store to buy a wallet to match with my new handbag. While I was asking the SA about the colors available for Celine wallets, she asked me where do I have the bag from. So I started bragging about my bag, how I found it on eBay and how much I love it. She looked at me with the most compassionate eyes I’ve seen and she told me: Honey, I hope you didn’t pay a lot because the bag is fake. I wanted to die in that moment! It was the worst experience of my life!

I’m not sure I’m going to trust an eBay seller ever again. And I still can’t believe how easily I got fooled. I want to buy another Celine bag but how can I ever be sure that I’m going to receive an authentic bag? Can you please give me some directions based on the photos of this Celine inspired handbag?

Thank you very much for all your help!

First of all, you shouldn’t blame yourself! There are a lot of guides on how to spot a fake Celine bag that are useless or that are written to confuse people, so it’s normal to get confused and make a mistake.

The first rule when buying a replica bag online, no matter if it’s a replica or an authentic is to know the bag you’re planning to get. If you’re looking for a Tricolor Celine handbag, make sure the version and colors exists. If you’re looking for a Taupe Celine Luggage, double check the photos to see if the color matches the authentic version.

How can I tell your purse is actually a Celine replica bag? Let’s start with the most obvious feature, the sides. The bag should measure 16.5″ with the top extended (for the Mini version) but the wings should be extendable at the bottom too. Here is an example of an authentic bag.

Another thing to keep in mind is the zipper. The Lampo zipper doesn’t make your bag a replica or an authentic.

A serial number embossed on a small leather tab doesn’t make your bag a replica but it doesn’t make it authentic either. The serial number on your bag doesn’t look good at all. The first two letters are bigger than the rest and the Made in Italy is crooked.

The logo is another giveaway. If you’re looking for an authentic Celine handbag, the letters should be a bit thicker; check the below picture.

These guidelines should help you make a better choice next time you shop for a Celine handbag but if you still have doubts, you can always ask me.

So girls, what do you think? At first glance, would you be able to tell if this Celine handbag is a fake?
