The Many Bags of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

I want you to think back, all the way back to when Real Housewives first appeared. It was just the Orange County wives back then, and the show was intended to be a behind-the-scenes look at the privileged lives of a group of women who lived in the exclusive Coto de Caza gated community. Now the show is more about drama than wealth, but the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills somehow manages to bring both in almost equal measure. (Depending on which cast member you’re talking about, the scale may tip one way or the other.)

Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Camille Grammer, Kim Richards, Taylor Armstrong, Adrienne Maloof and Brandi Glanville are the richest group of Housewives that Bravo has in its stable (although it appears that Lisa in particular, and perhaps Camille’s divorce settlement, may be helping out the average), and they make it known every episode in the jaw-dropping handbags that they carry. Now that the group has returned to television (and we’ve returned torecapping their antics), we’ve taken the liberty of looking through the group’s paparazzi shots and distilling them down into the definitive guide to The Many Bags of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The Many (Many) Bags of Kim Kardashian

The Many Bags of Kim Kardashian

We’ve been waiting a long time to do this one, and finally, The Many Bags of Kim Kardashian has arrived. The controversial reality star’s bag collection is easily the biggest one we’ve ever dug through, and you might be a little bit surprised by what we found: a lot of fairly conservative choices among the seventy-plus bags we found, many of them used repeatedly over the span of years.

“Kim Kardashian” has practically become a synonym for the excessive vacuousness of fame, but when you get down to it, Kim seems to both really enjoy her handbag collection and choose its contents wisely and with considerable care. She also seems to buy a lot of her bags herself, instead of receiving endless freebies and carrying whatever brands will send her. Hermes very famously does not give freebies or discounts to celebs, and Kim has most certainly spent plenty of her wealth on the acquisition of little (and big) orange boxes. Time and again, I found bags she’s used in the past couple of months popping up in paparazzi pictures from 2009 and 2010, which is a much more judicious use of her handbag backlog than many of us can claim. I’ve never been a Kardashian hater (or a Kardashian lover; I am mostly ambivalent), but after spending a few hours putting these photos together, I wouldn’t mind having a cocktail with Kim. Or looking through her closet, at the very least.

Cate Blanchett Doubles Up with Roger Vivier and Givenchy Bags

Cate Blanchett Roger Vivier Prismick Shoulder Bag Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel

Cate Blanchett was recently spotted heading to the theater in Manhattan for her matinee performance of The Maids. She’s carrying both a quilted, burgundy red Roger Vivier Prismick Shoulder Bag, which is a new-for-fall variation on one of the brand’s classic bags, and a taupe Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel. The aptly named Prismick is currently available in blue for $2,820 at MyTheresa.com. A new wine-colored version of the Lucrezia is also available for pre-order for$2,490 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Cate is extremely fond of Roger Vivier’s Prismick; we saw her with a two-tone black and white version of this bag in NYC last year. Frankly, I’m surprised we don’t see more celebs carrying this elegant design. In other news, I’m getting the distinct impression that jumpsuits are going to be really hot for fall amongst the NYC celeb set. (See also: Maggie Gyllenhaal.)

Bag Deals August 15

I’m not venturing much when I say that some people like neutral bags, while others prefer color. (Print people: we also have a bag for you.) During most times of the year, one variety of bag is far easier to find than others, but during this time of fall transition, you can find pretty much any color you’d like, from bright turquoise to graphite. In this week’s edition of Bag Deals, we have a little bit of both.

Which Trend Were You Wrong About?

Other Brands

Valentino Rockstud Bags

I’ve never liked admitting when I’m wrong about something, but when that something turns out to be a thing I enjoy that I had originally hated, that softens the blow a little bit. When it comes to handbags, the first things on that list are the Valentino Rockstud Bags.

When Valentino’s uber-successful line first debuted, it was with VaVaVoom bags during the brand’s Spring 2014 runway show. Valentino had been searching for its accessories identity for seasons, and it was beginning to feel like the brand’s then-fairly new creative directors might not find their groove. It felt like studs had been all over everything for years on end, and the finger-slips at the front of the VaVaVoom just didn’t quite make sense to me. (They still don’t, really, but the rest of the line is good enough to excuse it.)

A lot of you agreed with me in the comments on that initial review, but somehow, Valentino went on to tweak and expand the collection, making me and thousands of others into believers over the intervening three years. They’re surpassed “trend” and now seem like they’re headed toward “classic” – a bag that the brand can tweak and reissue to great customer response for years to come. I’m glad I was wrong about them.

Which bag or trend did you dismiss at first, only to come around to it later? Let us know in the comments.
