Blake Lively is well known for many things. When her career first went from obscure B list films and hit the big time in the Gossip Girl series, she suddenly became famous for her on screen outfits. And that hair! Suddenly girls who had been obsessed with straightening every strand of hair to get a perfect sheen began to think of ways to it look messy and slept in. Years later, she’s established herself not as a trendy icon but one that will eventually come to represent the late 2000s.

These series of pictures a testament to that. Most often spotted carrying a new statement bag or another, here she caries a classic flap bag. The chained bag also goes into the “iconic looks of the late 2000’s category.” These past few years, we have loved seeing chains on bags and that is a trend no one seems to be tired of yet. In fact, we’ve been spotting thicker, more rustic looking chains and metalwork on handbags on the runway.

Black is a classic color for bags because if you’re going to invest a little extra moolah for a great bag, it should be one you can wear with a wide variety of outfits, in different seasons and even years later. Trendy colors and cuts are also a must have but they do tend to look dated far more quickly. This bag on Blake is perfect for just about anyone.

The Mulberry bag has become as ubiquitous in celebrity circles as the Stam bag or a Birkin. The most stylish of this elite set seem to have one in every shade, such is their devotion to the brand. There are a lot of gorgeous styles to choose from: The Bayswater, the Emmy, the Daria, the Antony, but we are partial to the Alexa (named for Alexa Chung, star of yesterday’s Style Stealer segment).

Celebs are partial to the Alexa, too. Check out some of the most stylish celebrities around carrying this bag:
