Our end-of-year celebrity ensemble lists usually end up stacked from beginning to end with top designers and expensive products. However, 2016 looks a bit different. We started putting together our list of the best celebrity handbag sightings from last year, and realized there were several curveball moments that won us over. Check our our top 10 handbag moments of 2016.

1. Olivia Palermo’s Topshop clutch

Olivia Palermo is an expert in high-low fashion. The stylish socialite attended Topshop Unique’s fashion show during London Fashion Week and rocked a chic ensemble. To finish the outfit, Olivia carried a fur-trimmed leather clutch from Topshop. The day clutch looks like an expensive arm candy but the Topshop piece is only £50.00!

2. Penelope Disick’s mini-bag collection

Little Penelope Disick showed off her mini-bag collection and instantly stole our hearts. She’s not just cute, she also has great taste in handbags! Her expensive designer bag collection includes a mini Chanel shoulder bag and and a Saint Laurent Toy Sac De Jour.

5. Emma Stone’s Gucci “Jackie” bag

The lovely Emma Stone always makes classiest sartorial choices, even when she’s just having lunch with her friends. During an outing, Emma sported a black dress topped with a nude-colored coat, finishing off the look with a Gucci “Jackie” bag. This Gucci purse is a classic choice, which goes with pretty much anything. More about this look here.

6. Maisie Williams’ Charles & Keith bag

There are a lot of reasons we love Maisie Williams, and one of those reasons is that her outfits are never boring. The “Game of Thrones” star attended the 68th Emmy Awards, where she wore a Markus Lupfer gown paired with Charles & Keith bag. The cute triangle-shaped velvet purse looked glamorous enough for the Emmys, but it was surprisingly only $39.90. More on this here.

The fashion world went gaga over this accessory when it was debuted at Louis Vuitton’s spring 2017 runway. The Petite Malle iPhone case is a gorgeous mini version of the brand’s popular Petite Malle bag. Everyone seemingly rushed to get their hands on the chic case. Even Nicholas Ghesquière had his own piece.

9. Katie Holmes’ Fendi Monster tote

Katie Holmes was photographed catching a flight at LAX looking bare-faced and natural. Katie is often seen all glammed up on the red carpet, so this off-duty getup was pretty rare. We loved her off-duty fresh face, and also found ourselves loving her quirky bag choice too. The Fendi Monster Creature Tote is laid back, but still very chic for day looks. More on this story here.

10. REED x Kohl Launch

Back in 2015, Reed Krakoff announced it would be ceasing productions, but pleasantly surprised everyone with a brand new look in 2016. With a newly reinvented approach and a more affordable price tag, the REED label is here to stay for good. The launch of the brand’s new label was attended by some chic fashionistas.
