Celebs and their handbags at the 2010 Cartier International Polo Day

Up first is Miu Miu fan Camilla Belle who carried the Napa Croquette Stage in white. I thought the bag was a beautiful addition to her neutral ensemble and a suitable choice for the event. Camilla’s Napa Croquette shoulder bag is available to purchase from Bergdorf Goodman for $1,150.

…and a prime example of what not to wear to the Cartier Polo Day.

Geri Halliwell took her large (must be MM), grey Vernis Alma in addition to a blue Herve Ledger dress and gold Louboutins. The handbag seems a bit too large and bulky for this type of event and as it’s a top handle I imagine it would end up getting in the way quite a bit. Geri even seems a bit unsettled having to set it down on the grass on the photo above.

You can purchase the Vernis Alma in most Louis Vuitton boutiques for £1,260, full specs on the website.

Cat Deeley also chose to take a top handle bag, her trusty Balenciaga City. The classic, tan handbag is a great addition to her vintage maxi dress but I still think one of the Balenciaga clutches or shoulder bags, such as the Hip, would have been a more appropriate choice.

Finally a clutch!

Katherine Jenkins chose a woven clutch bag from the Anya Hindmarch spring 2009 collection. I love the detail and works well in adding a bit of colour to her simple dress, a look which otherwise might have looked slightly dull.

Holly Valance also made an appearance, carrying a sequin Miu Miu satchel. I actually quite like the mixing of the print of the dress and the sequins but again, I’m not sure why she felt the need to take such a large handbag.

Celebs Attend Mulberry Fall 2010 Party in West Hollywood

Mulberry hosted a pool party at Chateau Marmont earlier in the week to celebrate the fall collection. Kate Bosworth, Cat Deeley, half the cast of 90210 and Alexa Chung all attended the bash, showing of their favourite accessories from the collection.

Kate Bosworth wore the adorable Lily shoulder bag in leopard print with leopard plaque, which isn’t yet available online. It’s no surprise which bag Alexa Chung carried – the new season camel mixed haircalf Alexa, available for £1,650 and coming soon to the Mulberry online shop. Cat Deeley chose a metallic Lily shoulder bag, which seemed a great addition to her all black ensemble and metallic shoes. All handbags are pictured below.

I’m a little disappointed that nobody was spotted with the other new Alexa – the purple red loopy leopard print, my favourite bag from the collection.
