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?

Celine Winter 2014 Handbags

[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.]

As we continue to inch our way through summer, the advancing date means just one thing in the fashion world: fall collections are starting to pop up all over the Internet. Céline’s Winter 2014 Handbag Lookbook just popped up online, and we’ve got all the bags below.

The only new line debuting for Winter 2014 is the weird Orb Bag that graced the season’s runway, which comes in both an east-west satchel and a petite French purse. Other than that, you’ll find a lot of standby Céline favorites, including the Luggage Tote, Phantom Luggage and Trapeze in new color combinations. The Belt Bag, which debuted for Fall 2014, is a particular standout in sedate tan with subtle neon pink edging. Check out the full lookbook below.

Givenchy’s Fall-Winter 2014 Bags Have an Emphasis on Exotics

Other Brands

Givenchy Fall Winter 2014 21

[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.]

If you already love Givenchy, we’ve got some great news for you: Givenchy is as Givenchy as ever for Fall-Winter 2014. (That’s what the brand calls the collection we’d generally just call “fall” – that term is instead applied to Givenchy’s pre-fall wares. Fashion is very complicated.)

As you might have guessed, based on the $36,000 Antigona we found two weeks ago, Givenchy’s upcoming line isn’t short on exotics. In addition to that black bag, there’s also a lovely medium grey version in crocodile, plus a bordeaux croc Obsedia satchel and some of the brand’s other popular shapes in snakeskin and ostrich.

Check out the bags below, and we’ll let you know when more of this collection starts trickling into stores.

PurseForum Roundup – August 22

Other Brands

Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag

Happy Happy Friday! Whether your week was excellent or awful, it’s time bid it farewell and say hello to the weekend, which includes another edition of the PurseForum Roundup! Sorry we missed you last week, but we are happy to be back on track with plenty of beautiful bags and more.


Flower Arrangement

We made a couple of quick stops in the Playground and found some absolutely magnificent bouquets in Home and Garden’s new Flower Arrangements thread, where our members show off their blossoming new floral skills. We could not believe how talented they all are, even though some are just beginning to stretch their wings at this hobby. Luv Birkin is among the newbies, and she put together the brilliant arrangement above. We also dropped intoUp to the Minute, where discussions of all the major headlines (and some minor ones) are the order of the day.


Multicolor Celine Luggage Tote

Speaking of flowers, how about this Céline Bicolor Luggage featuring luscious orchid?!PoisonIvy looks forward to using this bag in the fall, and we hope we will see some modeling shots when temperatures cool off a bit. Lyonexpat also selected from the purple range for her new Trapeze. 

Tanya1729 also got her her first Céline this week, and fans of the brand will enjoy this reveal for its clear pictures of the bag’s scrumptious leather. Capucine picked up a pretty new Luggageas well; it’s a classic combination with style for days, and Capucine is pleased as can be!


Christian Dior Miss Dior Bag

The PurseForum’s Christian Dior fans seem to have a real knack for photographing their bags and accessories. This week we caught a look at the pretty and photogenic Promenade Pouch on a chain Roku picked up (at a steal of a deal). Roku’s reveal comes with a spectacular family photo that will have you pondering your next small bag purchase!

Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag

Also, what a fabulous Lady Dior! NancyFancy picked up this beauty and a Promenade Pouch right along with it. We can see why it was love at first sight, and you will definitely want to take a look at these two together.


Christian Louboutin Rouge Nail Polish

Is it as wonderful as it looks? Does it match? What do our members think of the new Christian Louboutin polish? This line has inarguably made quite an entrance, and of course our Christian Louboutin members wasted no time in taking the plunge. In her “Unboxing” thread, ichellereviews this polish and shows us if it is indeed a perfect match to the famous red soles. I bet you can guess the results.

Christian Louboutin Pumps

If you love reveals, you will love the Show Off your New Shoes thread, where Christian Louboutin fans pop in to unwrap their latest purchases. August has been busy, and when we dropped in, we found ChristChrist’s new shoes and they are fabulous! Carya also picked uptwo pair of Loubies, this time in pink tones. Fans of fun mustn’t miss these Geo multi pumps–saartje102 also includes some fun family photos, too!


Mulberry Bayswater bag

Mulberry fans and Roundup readers know we love to spend some time with the lovely ladies of Mulberry and their gorgeous bags. Snailpolish revealed her first Mulberry, and we love this classic, elegant, neutral color. Changingwoman also revealed first Mulberry – a chocolate ivy Bayswater - and took us on a delightful walk through the woods at the same time.


Bottega Veneta Hobo

We always know that when indiaink reveals a bag in Bottega Veneta, it is going to be elegant and amazing. This Sunrise Veneta is very special indeed, and it’s in incredible vintage condition.Khanji showed off her new bag, a must-see Veneta in rosa shock, and it’s a bag that we very much hope to see in an action thread soon!

Bottega Veneta Bracelets

Normally we turn to the Jewelry Box for bracelet layering and stacking, but this week we found a great little stack in BV, courtesy of the lovely Mousse.


That does it for this week, Roundup readers! Thank you so much for spending a bit of your time with us each week. We hope you have a terrific weekend and week a head, and we look forward to seeing you right back here soon!

Rihanna Doubles Up on Dior Bags for No Appreciable Reason

Other Brands

Rihanna Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag Christian Dior Addict Tote

Here’s Rihanna, leaving lunch at Da Silvano in NYC (a restaurant she seems particularly fond of), carrying both a pastel blue Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag and a pink Christian Dior Addict Tote. Apparently she carried both, exactly like that, throughout the entire day. Oh, Ri-Ri! The sum total contents of both bags was probably an iPhone and some gum, which just makes us like her more, somehow.

If you want to peruse the rest of Rihanna’s incredibly expansive designer handbag collection, you should absolutely check out “The Many Bags of Rihanna” and “The Many Bags of Rihanna, Part 2″. And if that doesn’t quench your thirst for all things Rihanna, you can also swing by our sister site Shoes and check out “The Many Shoes of Rihanna” over at Shoes.
