Celebs flocked to NYC last weekend for a whirlwind of Met Gala fittings and the other pomp and circumstance that comes with fashion’s most prestigious party. It’s dangerous to make a fashion misstep in the hours leading up to Monday night’s gala, so suffice it to say that you’ll like what you see here. As will Anna Wintour, I’m sure. We covered everything we saw on the carpet at the Met Gala yesterday afternoon, but here’s what many toted around town during the days before.

Meanwhile, back in LA, Jennifer Garner attended Sunday service with her fam. She took a grey leather Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag, because we all know the Lord loveth Chanel.
Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Masters Van Gogh Neverfull Tote
$3,200 via Louis Vuitton
We have strong feelings about the new Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons collab, but Karlie Kloss is clearly a fan. Here she is arriving at her hotel for Met Gala prep with with the Van Gogh Neverfull Tote.
Lupita Nyong’o loves to keep us guessing with her frequent mystery bags. Before we saw her lovely Prada look at the gala, we were thinking this bag might be made by whoever was dressing her for the evening, but this isn’t Prada’s work. It does look very familiar, though.
Prada Jewels Ribbon Bag
$2,840 via Bergdorf Goodman
New York doesn’t stop for the Met Ball, of course. Celebs still have other obligations. Here’s Naomi Watts leaving a screening of her new film 3 Generations in NYC with an eye-catching Prada Jewels Ribbons Bag.
Coach Swagger Bag
$495 via Coach
Selena Gomez carried this pink Coach Swagger Bag as she was ferried around for her Met Ball prep. If you guessed Coach dressed her for the gala: you’re right.
Dior Diorever Tote
Shop Dior via Vestiaire Collective
Finally, here’s Sienna Miller, leaving that same 3 Generations screening with a metallic leather Dior Diorever Tote. You know, I absolutely loved this bag when it came out, but now it seems forever safety-pinned to 2016.
