Rarely a week goes by without featuring actress Jessica Alba carrying something fabulous here on the blog, and after much discussion, we decided it was high time that we took a second look at her bag collection. Jessica was one of the first celebs who we profiled when we started doing the "Many Bags" posts, and in the 17 months since we last checked, Jessica has carried over 50 gorgeous bags for us to drool over. That's, what, a new bag every 10 days or so? Pretty impressive, if you ask us. Not only that, but Jessica stays true to her own personal style - she carries lots of mini crossbody bags, which fit perfectly with her California-cool look. Check out the full collection, part two, below.
It's always difficult to figure out where to start when a star has such an enormous handbag collection, but let's go with Jessica's deep and abiding love for Ralph Lauren. Here, she's carrying one of her (several) Ralph Lauren Soft Ricky Bags. Jessica's bag will set you back $2,500 via Ralph Lauren.
And another Ralph Lauren Soft Ricky Bag, this time in purple. Get Jessica's exact bag for $2,500 via Ralph Lauren.
Jessica also has the Ralph Lauren Ricky 18 Crossbody in purple. The black version will set you back $1,750 via Ralph Lauren.
The Ralph Lauren Stirrup Crossbody is also in Jessica's bag arsenal. Get the leopard version for $2,950 via Ralph Lauren.
Jessica carries this Ralph Lauren Stirrup Top Handle Bag to the brand's most recent show. Shop Ralph Lauren via the brand's official site.
Speaking of being a "guest of the design", Jessica carried this 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Satchel to the capsule collection's NYC launch party. Shop what's left of the line via Target.
Also, Jessica carried this Diane von Furstenberg Tonda Clutch to the Designer's Spring 2014 show. Buy the gold version for $345 via Nordstrom.
Jessica also chooses DVF in her downtime, like this Diane von Furstenberg 440 Tote. Get a similar version for $545 via Matches.
I've seen this cute little black-and-ivory bag identified as Diane von Furstenberg, but sadly I can't find definitive proof of that possibility.
This black and ivory bag, on the other hand, is definitely the Rebecca Minkoff Sienna Tote. Shop Rebecca Minkoff via the brand's official site.
Actually, Jessica carries a lot of black and white bags, like this Michael Kors Miranda Tote. Get Jessica's exact bag for $1,295 via Nordstrom.
And this Christian Louboutin Farida Snakeskin Shopper. Get the leopard version for $2,295 via Saks.
And this Roger Vivier Prismick Shoulder Bag. Buy the tote version for $3,455 via MyTheresa.
And last but not least, the Chloe Alice Bag, which might actually be white and navy, but it looks black in this photo. Buy through Saks for $2,295.
Which is to say nothing of the plain white bags, like this Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch Crossbody. Pick it up in blue for $1,325 via Neiman Marcus.
The Gerard Darel Harper Crossbody is a similar size and color as the PS1 Pouch, but you can never have too many white minibags, right?
And then the Derek Lam Ume Crossbody Bag makes three.
Jessica's CC Skye Canyon Luxe Bag is decidedly non-mini, although it is quite white.
Jessica's Valentino Intricate Soutache Tote Bag is maybe the most beautiful of her white options. Buy the red version for $4,595 via Neiman Marcus.
We're also going to count this MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Crossbody Bag, even though it's actually light grey instead of white. We're not sticklers. Pick it up for $228 via Nordstrom.
Jessica's affordable IIIbeca by Joy Gryson Duane Street Messenger in pale beige also seems to belong with this group. Buy through Bloomingdale's for $158 in three different colors.
I draw the line at this Tod's Classic Medium Tote - it's lovely, but too dark to be lumped in with the pale bags. Get the same bag in brown for $1,595 via Nordstrom.
The proportion of this extra-large Jimmy Choo Rosalie Bag never ceases to confuse me. Get a smaller version for $1,550 via Nordstrom.
On the other hand, there's nothing confusing about Jessica's cute little Jimmy Choo Mini Rebel Bag. Get the silver version for $950 via Nordstrom.
Jessica also has the Jimmy Choo Mini Rebel Bag in this studded version. Buy for $1,450 via Jimmy Choo.
That Jimmy Choo bag and this Alexander McQueen Mini Heroine Shoulder Bag have a lot in common - they're both tiny, black and covered in mini studs. Pick up Jessica's exact bag for $2,165 via Saks.
Jessica's Alexander McQueen Whipstitched Shopper Tote is at the other end of the size spectrum. Shop Alexander McQueen via Saks.
So's this Proenza Schouler Extra Large PS1 Bag - it seems as though Jessica used it as an extra-chic diaper bag. Pick up your own for $2,350 via Neiman Marcus.
Jessica carries two bags together more than any other celeb we've seen, like her mini Jimmy Choo and this Nina Ricci Ballet Satchel. Pick one up for $2,550 via Neiman Marcus.
At the airport, Jessica paired her big Chloe Alice with this petite Salvatore Ferragamo Shoulder Bag. Shop Ferragamo via Saks.
We also caught Jessica carrying this Gerard Darel Plum Laser Cut Bag with a mini crossbody that we have yet to identify.
Most often, though, we just see Jessica with a petite crossbody bag, like this Kenzo Croc Embossed Flap Bag. Pick up a similar bag for $1,380 via ShopBop.
Despite her extensive bag collection, Jessica's not immune to the charms of a good deal - we caught her with this relatively affordable Vince Camuto Signature Sam Crossbody Bag, also in embossed croc. Shop Vince Camuto via Bloomingdale's.
Jessica doesn't carry much suede, but she made an exception for this Opening Ceremony OC LA Bag. Get the velvet version for $550 via ShopBop.
This Marni Classic Saddle Bag also fits the minibag category pretty well. Get one in tan for $990 via Neiman Marcus.
This Chanel Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag rounds out the category.
Jessica is another actress who seems to enjoy Simone Camille Bags, which I simply do not understand. Pick up a similar bag for $2,276 (!!!) via farfetch.com.
Like this Simone Camille Small Carpet Bag, for instance. It's so much less sophisticated than the rest of her collection! Buy for $858 via ShopBop.
The Cobra Society Tangier Satchel is an example of the boho style done a bit better.
Her Bulgari Serpenti Hand Carry Bag is much more like it. Shop via Bulgari.
Jessica's not a logo-bag girl, by and large, but like a lot of other stars, she loves her Louis Vuitton W Bag. Buy through Louis Vuitton for $4,000.
We also caught Jessica toting this Gucci Duffel Bag in the brand's famous monogram fabric. Shop Gucci via Gucci.
This Salvatore Ferragamo Studded Sofia Bag is more her normal speed - neutral, subtle, sophisticated. Shop Ferragamo via Saks.
Jessica's Valentino Rockstud Trapeze Bag fits the same category. Pick up the black version for $2,395 via Net-a-Porter.
Jessica travels with this same metal suitcase a lot, and this time it had the Marc Jacobs Antonia Satchel on top of it. $1,595 via Nordstrom.
I love how Jessica mixed a plaid shirt with this Clare Vivier Flat Clutch Supreme. Pick it up for $195 via Piperlime.
Maybe my favorite bag in Jessica's collection is her Prada Patchwork Spazzolato Tote. I still wish I had picked one up when I had the chance. Shop Prada via Neiman Marcus.
Last but not least, Jessica has her clutch-holding pose down for events. First, observe her with this Christian Louboutin Marquise Clutch at the Met Gala. $1,995 via Neiman Marcus.
And this Dior Flat Clutch with a matching Dior dress...
And finally, this lovely Edie Parker Jean Diamond Box Clutch. Buy through Matches for $1,295.
