wpid spl429186007 200x300 - Jessica Alba carries both a McQueen bag and a flower arrangementMost tabloids have those “Stars: They’re Just Like Us!” features in one form or another, and it seems like these pictures of Jessica Alba struggling to carry a bouquet of flowers (or perhaps a very chic potted plant assembly? Who can tell anymore these days?) from her car to her final destination will probably end up in at least one of them this time next week. Not only that, but she’s coming from a station wagon! Jessica Alba really is just like us, if you don’t count how she’s incredibly pretty and also very rich. (Maybe some of you are also incredibly pretty and very rich, and if that’s the case, mazel tov.)

The bag Alba’s juggling is an Alexander McQueen Whipstitched Shopper, which is a sensible choice for a young mom with two little kids. It’s big, it’s neutral, it stand up well to wear and tear – Rachel Zoe even chose it has her diaper bag when she had her son. Truth be told, though, I’m also pretty curious abou the flowers that Alba’s carrying – having lots of fresh flowers in your apartment is one of the only ways to stay sane in NYC, and that looks like a mood-boosting bouquet indeed.

wpid spl429373001 184x300 - Alanis Morissette hits New York with bright green BalenciagaRegular readers of BagThatStyle and PurseBlog know all about my fascination with Alanis Morissette and her unexpectedly fabulous collection of designer handbags. You wouldn’t expect someone like Morissette, who skews toward hippiedom, to have an absolutely sick closet full of the finest from Chanel, Balenciaga, Gucci and Proenza Schouler, but that’s what makes her bag habit all the more compelling for me – she’s one of us!

It’s been a little while since the paparazzi gave us an opportunity to check in with Alanis (by the looks of our photo agency’s website, they’re too busy following D-list celebrities at the beach to take pictures of any decent handbags for us – such is summer!), and now that she’s back, she’s carrying something new to her collection and just as fabulous as you’d expect, based on her track record. That’s a verdant, bold Balenciaga Papier Tote that Morissette has tucked under her arm protectively, and I can’t blame here – if I had a bag that bright, I’d want to shield it from any potential harm as well.

wpid spl428386021 199x300 - Kelly Osbourne proves that a neon Chanel flap bag does existThe neon trend that’s been happening for the past year has been nearly all-encompassing, so seeing a normally staid brand come out with something neon really shouldn’t surprise me. In fact, it generally doesn’t – most brands aren’t beyond a little easy trend-pushing, and color fads are adaptable to most aesthetics. Chanel, on the other hands, was perhaps the one brand I expected not to go for it, but here’s Kelly Osbourne, toting a fluoro Chanel Flap Bag.

I can’t figure out if it’s current-season or not, but no lookbooks I’ve seen from Chanel over the last year have included anything even vaguely neon, so I wonder if perhaps this bag is from a previous season. It looks a bit slouchy and worn, and Kelly Osbourne has certainly been rich for quite a while. I’m not a comprehensive Chanel expert, though, so if you know this bag’s provenance, let me know in the comments.

wpid spl429532001 199x300 - Kristin Davis carries YSL in NYCIn my never-ending (ok, it’ll end when the summer’s over and all the celebs are back to normal) quest to find someone to write about other than the Kardashians, Ecclestones and the Birkins that they buy to match their hair extensions, I bring you these photos of Kristin Davis, out for a morning walk in New York City. I still can’t think of her without thinking “Charlotte York-Goldenblatt,” and I’m sure I’m not the only one – it seems as though parts of Davis’ personality and personal style mesh well with those of her famous Sex and the City character.

I’m not sure that Charlotte would leave the house in capri sweatpants and sneakers, of course, except maybe during the episodes where Harry dumped her and she was obsessing over Elizabeth Taylor. That’s the thing about SATC, though – in real life New York, almost everyone, even reasonably rich people, leave the house in questionable ensembles for a quick morning run to Duane Reade. There’s an element of New York that you can’t escape unless you’re absolutely swimming in money, unfortunately. At the very least, Davis has her Yves Saint Laurent YSL Chyc Shoulder Bag.

wpid spl428872001 158x300 - Alexis Bellino admits to wearing a fake diamond – is her Birkin real?Do you guys watch Real Housewives of Orange County? I do, against my better judgment, and sometimes as a part of my job. I have varying amounts of contempt for all of the members of that cast in particular, but Alexis Bellino in particular rubs me the wrong way. On a show where literally everyone is fake, she somehow manages to distinguish herself as EXTRA fake. It’s a certain type of achievement, I suppose. Let’s just say that I’m not the woman’s biggest fan, despite the fact that her oafish husband does occasionally make me feel sorry for her.

One of the most fascinating things (to me) to come out of this past season of OC Housewives was that the ring Alexis wears is fake. She claims that the real one is in the safe because she is scared that someone would see it and mug her (which doesn’t explain why she wears a giant bling-y CZ that muggers will mistake for a diamond, but whatever), but based on all the rumors about the couple’s financial issues and shady past, I’m not sure I believe her. When I saw these pictures of Alexis with a big orange Hermes Birkin, I automatically wondered the same thing – what are the odds that the bag is real? I have no idea, but it wouldn’t shock me if the real Birkin was “in the safe” too.

wpid spl426657003 224x300 - Kim Kardashian wears Kanye with Kanye (and carries Hermes, duh)I wrote a while back that I thought that Kanye West‘s stylistic influence had motivated Kim Kardashian to modify her own personal style, and when you see the two of them standing together, how similar they’ve become, visually speaking, is totally apparent. A year ago, Kim probably had half the black clothes that she has today, and I certainly don’t think she had the Hermes So Black Birkin (all black, including the hardware) that she has today. So is that good, or is it bad? He’s definitely the reason Kim’s wearing the Kanye West for Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals that she’s wearing in this photos.

Kim inarguably looks better when she’s a bit toned down, as does almost everyone, so part of me thinks that we should all thank Kanye for his positive influence. On the other hand, though, I hate to see anyone change because of (or for) a significant other, and if Kim really does love all the tight, bright, fashion-victim stuff she used to wear, then I think she should keep on wearing it and Kanye should just deal. For now, I’m choosing to believe that Kanye’s more fashion-forward style has simply inspired Kim to be more thoughtful about her sartorial direction.

wpid spl431991006 253x300 - Carrie Fisher goes to the airport with her Frenchie and her PS1When I log in to our photo service to see what the paparazzi has come up with on any given day, I never know what I’m going to find. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes it’s all British reality TV famewhores, but usually it’s somewhere in between. Last night, though, I logged in to start the process for today’s post, and I found perhaps my favorite set of photos ever. They include entertainment legend and all-around awesome person Carrie Fisher, a big ol’ French bulldog and a purple Proenza Schouler PS1. Based on these photos, Carrie Fisher might be my spirit animal.

If you’re not familiar with Fisher’s work beyond Princess Leia, BUY HER BOOKS. Postcards from the Edge, Wishful Drinking, they’re all pretty hilarious. She’s led a fascinating, at times totally screwed up life and she’s extremely frank about all of it. On top of that, she has an adorable Frenchie (look at those ears!) and good taste in handbags, so I’m not sure exactly how she’s not the most beloved woman in America. If I were president, she would be.

wpid spl425688004 240x300 - Christina Hendricks stars in The Return of the Pink PantsI am a huge Christina Hendricks fan in so, so many ways. I’m a Mad Men devotee, of course, and Hendricks’ Joan is the emotional center of the show, not to mention the female character with the best one-liners. Hendricks herself is also an inspiration – she’s pale, extremely curvy and so unlike most of the famous actresses working today. As another pale, curvy girl working in an industry that often doesn’t celebrate those attributes, I feel a certain sense of sisterhood with Ms. Hendricks.

We have to talk about these pink pants, though. They’re just…not great on her. They weren’t last time we caught her wearing them, and they’re still not quite working for me. Finding things that work perfectly on such a curvy body can be a real challenge, particularly on the high-end market, but I’d so much prefer her to see Christina in a cigarette pant than a pair of unstructured wide-leg trousers. I’m all for wearing whatever you want, no matter your body type, but it’s one of the few looks that I think truly only works on the Karlie Kloss types among us; not just thin girls, but girls who are also well above average height. The Salvatore Ferragamo Shoulder Bag, however, can stay.

wpid spl425188018 199x300 - Lea Michele carries Marc by Marc Jacobs on the set of “Glee”True confession: I don’t like Glee. I so want to like it, and I think that baby gay Chris Colfer is adorable and talented, and I hope that he’ll have a long career that will allow me to enjoy his work in other forms. For the life of me, though, I just can’t get on board with his current show. I get a not-so-great vibe about Lea Michele in particular, despite the fact that she’s undeniably talented. Still, though, I can’t shake the impression that she’s a person I might not care for, were I to meet her in face-to-face. I’m aware that’s a controversial statement among her many dedicated fans.

The upshot of all that unsolicited opinion-having is that Glee filmed some outdoor scenes in New York lately, meaning that the paparazzi got a heavy eyeful of the cast, most notably Lea, doing their thing in full costume. For her bag, it looks like Glee‘s wardrobe department picked a cute little Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Karlie Bag, which is a perfect fit for someone meant to be depicting a high schooler – cute, trendy, not outrageously priced. Maybe I can get behind Lea, or at least her character, after all.
