I just have to assume Amanda bogarted all of the really premium celebrity pics for her Oscars posts this week, because I have quite the cast of real, uh, up and comers in this handbag round-up. There are still several names you know, but at least one or two that you’ve probably never heard of before today, including a gal who just flashed her bits at the Oscars. (Bless her.) Enjoy! [Editor’s Note: The Celebs, they were largely in hiding in the days around the Oscars! -Amanda]
Gucci Sylvie Bag
$2,890 via Gucci
Katie Holmes recently breezed through LAX with a posh Gucci Sylvie Bag. The Sylvie is certainly having a moment this week, and more evidence is forthcoming. Of course, no one here questions Katie Holmes’s prominence or her absolute right to wear floppy hats anywhere.
Givenchy Antigona Bag
$1,750 via Barneys
Here’s actress Blanca Blanco, out and about in Beverly Hills with a sleek green Givenchy Antigona. I looked at her IMDB and I cannot for the life of me fathom why she was invited to the Oscars, but she was. She wore a high-slit dress and no underwear, and now it’s a whole thing. A star is born?
Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Next in celebrities I have never heard of before today, here’s Chantel Jeffries, heading into Catch with a cute hot pink Chanel Classic Flap. Chantel is apparently famous for occasionally dating/getting into car wrecks with Bieber. She also acts a bit. Whether she chooses to wear underwear on event carpets or not is her own business.
Gucci Sylvie Bag
$3,500 via Gucci
Here’s international film star Deepika Padukone, blitzing through LAX with a breathtaking floral and pastel blue Gucci Sylvie. (I’ve never seen this bag before, so clearly Deepika is kind of a big deal.) She also attended the Oscars, wearing a dress that an Indian tabloid has accused her of wearing once five years ago. SHOCKING.
Mansur Gavriel Elegant Bag
$825 via Net-a-Porter
Here’s model Hailey Clauson, out and about in NYC with a patent leather Mansur Gavriel Elegant Bag. Hailey is the fourth celeb featured here that I have never heard of, but then again, I am not an avid reader of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
Gucci Weekender Bag
$2,450 via Gucci
Finally, a scruffy face you know! It’s Jared Leto of course, wearing an outfit that is Peak Jared Leto, and carrying an oversized, embroidered Gucci Weekender Bag that is extremely on-brand for Jared Leto.
Gucci Marmont Bag
$1,890 via Gucci
We’ll put an end to this Gucci parade with Kourtney Kardashian, leaving a studio in LA with the prematurely timeless Gucci Marmont Bag.
Prada Vitello Daino Tote
$1,580 via Neiman Marcus
And finally, here’s Thandie Newton, leaving LAX with a lovely, pale daffodil yellow Prada tote. Thandie seems to have skipped the Oscars and headed straight for the Vanity Fair after-party, like a pro.
