Mentally Prepare Yourselves for a 100% “Celebrities at Coachella” handbag Round-up

once upon a time, Coachella was not an annual event that people mostly associated with recognizable celebrities adorned in suede fringe frolicking about in the desert. It is a music festival, after all, and it used to just be about indie bands, and not Steely Dan and The Black Eyed Peas. (I’m not joking, both of those bands actually headlined this year.) In a much different Internet era, the idea talking about the handbags of Coachella would’ve seemed laughable (and it would’ve completely obliterated your indie cred). But, luckily for bag lovers everywhere, that’s not the world we live in today, and this is not a music blog.

Alessandra Ambrosio
Chanel tiny messenger Bag
Alessandra Ambrosio might as well have been built in a lab for the express purpose of looking good at Coachella, because she always looks like the queen of the entire thing. Her Chanel tiny looks pretty charming with the rest of her outfit, and it really reminds me of the bags from Chanel’s Texas-inspired Metiers d’Arts 2014 collection.

Ashley Greene
Erin Dana tiny Bond street Backpack
$198 by means of Shopbop
Here’s actress Ashley Greene, navigating her way through Coachella after dark with a blue tiny backpack from NY designer Erin Dana.

Givenchy tiny Pandora Bag
$1,150 by means of Saks
Multiple photo agencies have identified this girl as Ashley Madekwe, but it seems like it’s not actually her. However, the bag and absurd outfit are worth a look. Also, did she tell a bunch of photographers she was Ashley, or did the photographers make a bad assumption? The world may never know.

Yes, this is Fergie, wearing a Coachella-appropriate pair of steampunk sunglasses and carrying a Céline Trio. The Black Eyed Peas actually “reunited” at Coachella this year. I’m not sure the term “reunion” was warranted, but fair enough.

Gigi Hadid
Elizabeth and James Cynnie Sling Bag
$545 by means of Shopbop
You’ll just have to take our word for it that this is Gigi Hadid, making out with her fringe-cloaked partner Cody Simpson. At least we can tell you with 100% certainty that Gigi’s bag is an Elizabeth and James.

Gigi Hadid
Etienne Aigner Copper Crossbody Bag
This, however, is absolutely Gigi, who assumed festival fringe-duty on this given day. and yes, that is an Etienne Aigner bag. Etienne Aigner is trying to cash in on what remains of its cred with some pretty great handbags that retail for around $300.

Kate Bosworth
Coach Dakota Rivets 14 tiny Bag
$350 by means of Coach
Speaking of handbags that retail for around $300, here’s Kate Bosworth carrying a sweet little instructor mini, and having a sweet Coachella moment with her spouse Michael Polish.

Nicky Hilton
Balenciaga metallic first Bag
Shop Balenciaga by means of MATCHESFASHION.COM
Nicky Hilton loves Coachella. In fact, I suspect she might’ve instigated the annual Coachella mass celeb exodus from LA so lots of years ago. Nicky also puts a lot of thought into her daily Coachella ensembles. On this particular day, she went with an old school metallic Balenciaga, matching pink shades, some triangular statement jewelry and a colorfully patterned mini.

Nicky Hilton
Chloé Paddington Bag
Shop Chloé by means of Neiman Marcus
Here’s Nicky on a different day, wearing a great embroidered white dress, lucite shades, and carrying an old school Chloé Paddington.

Nikki Reed
Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack
$295 by means of Rebecca Minkoff
Actress Nikki Reed couldn’t confine her festival needs to just one fringed handbag, she had to take two. here she is with her BF, The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder. Her backpack is from Rebecca Minkoff, but we’re not sure who makes the smaller fringed bag.
