The final days of 2016 actually delivered in the handbag department (in this way, and this way only). Celebs are usually hard to spot between Christmas and New Year’s, but paps seemed to have no problem finding them outside of Catch, sprinkled along Rodeo Drive and waiting at the arrivals gate of LAX with gorgeous new bags from Chloé, Hermès and more. They (mostly) seemed genuinely excited to be out with friends and fam in front of the cameras. And, as promised, J-Lo makes two separate appearances, with two separate gorgeous bags. 2017 is off to a pretty great start, bag-wise.
Bryshere Y. Gray
MCM Nomad Duffel
$1,200 via Shopbop
This time we’ll begin the round-up with a nice man bag, for a change. Here’s Empire star Bryshere Y. Gray, heading to an appearance on Good Day Philadelphia with a stylish MCM Nomad Duffel.
Chrissy Teigen was recently spotted at LAX carrying baby Luna and a black leather Hermès Birkin with gold hardware. Strangely enough, Hermès is not actually a brand we see Chrissy carry that often. Did someone get a new Birkin for Christmas?
Hermès Kelly Bag
Here’s J-Lo, taking her daughter out to dinner at Catch, and why, yes, that is a daffodil yellow Hermès Kelly Bag on her arm. This is an unusual hue for Hermès bags, and we definitely don’t see it much in January.
Louis Vuitton x Christian Louboutin Shopper Tote
As promised, here’s J-Lo once again, shopping with some gal pals on Rodeo Drive. This time she’s carrying one of her favorite bags, the Louis Vuitton x Christian Louboutin Shopper Tote, which we also saw her carrying during a separate, pre-Christmas shopping trip to Barneys recently. J-Lo seems to take its name quite literally.
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag
$2,890 via Net-a-Porter
Miranda Kerr returned to her home turf for the holidays, as one does, even if one is an elegant, world-famous supermodel. Here she is carrying a black leather Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag at the Sydney airport.
Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Nicky Hilton finally made her pilgrimage to Catch with a quilted Chanel Classic Flap Bag in tow.
Givenchy Nightingale Bag

Paps spotted Nicole Richie ferrying her son Sparrow through LAX, along with all of his favorite plush friends and a sleek Givenchy Nightingale Bag.
Chloé Kurtis Bag

Finally, here’s Vanessa Hudgens, heading into Catch (where else?) with a brand new burgundy suede and leather Chloé Kurtis Bag.
