Here’s a blue-haired Nicole Richie, making the press rounds in NYC for her new reality show Candidly Nicole. (Yes, Nicole Richie is returning to reality television, for reasons I don’t completely understand.) She’s carrying the largest size of the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote, which is definitely its most Birkin-esque variation. Nicole’s bag is currently available for $2,950 at Barneys.

Ever since her departure from the reality TV show The Simple Life (which first aired over a decade ago), Nicole has worked to redeem herself for her vapid, Juicy Couture tracksuit-wearing reality TV persona by rebranding herself as a celeb style maven and fashion designer. I doubt a new reality show could possibly undermine all that, but only time will tell. In the meantime, you can peruse all of Nicole’s luxe handbag picks in “The Many Bags of Nicole Richie.”

Paris Couture Week brings out not only the best of the best in clothing on the runways, but its attendees are also a very particular sort. Because couture stands separate from the roving circus of the four big ready-to-wear fashion weeks, it tends to attract a more well-edited set of attendees, industry insiders and celebrities alike. Just like we do with every major fashion week, we’ve taken the liberty of analyzing just what kind of handbags these lucky invite-holders toted to the shows, and you can see the results below.

Here’s supermodel Miranda Kerr, doing Miranda Kerr things on an especially steamy, 93-degree day in New York City and making an intentionally exposed black bralet look ridiculously chic, somehow. (Strangely enough, the woman standing behind her is trying the exact same thing. I’d say Miranda wears it better, but I might be biased by my insane girl crush on MK.) Miranda is carrying a black Hermes Birkin, natch.

Unless you just landed here, you probably know that Miranda is one of our favorite celebs to feature on PurseBlog and TalkShoes; her accessories picks usually trump every other celeb’s bag and/or shoes on any given day. You can see all of her exceptional fashion ensembles in “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr”, “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr, Part 2″, and “The Many Shoes of Miranda Kerr.”

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, enjoying a night out with Scott Disick in the city after returning from an extended romp in the Hamptons with the fam. The couple dined at NYC’s super-trendy (and, from what I’ve heard, super delicious) Italian-American restaurant Carbone. Kourtney’s bag of choice for the occasion was a Celine Tie Tote, which we’ve seen her carrying before.

Now that it’s July, I’m coming around to this oversized Celine style a little more. It may not be the next Phantom Luggage Tote, but it does seem to make a superb summer carryall. Speaking of that infamous “It” bag, the Kardashian sisters make quite a few appearances in our round-up of celebrities who are totally devoted to the bag.

Here’s Gwen Stefani, leaving an acupuncturist’s office in LA, carrying a perfectly Gwen-appropriate Christian Louboutin Panettone Spiked Satchel. (Honestly, I haven’t seen Gwen Stefani looking this Gwen Stefani in quite some time.) This multicolored spiked version of the Panettone is punk, hippie and luxe, all in one, just like Gwen. You can find this exact bag for $2,195 at Net-a-Porter.

Everyone knows that Gwen is an eclectic gal with a bold sense of style, and thus, her handbag choices are always infinitely more interesting than whatever “It” bag is on the arm of 80% of other celebs at any given moment. She doesn’t have her own edition of “Many Bags” just yet, but you can check out some of her best bags in “The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms”.

It wasn’t that long ago that Givenchy was just another luxury brand in LVMH’s significant stable. A few years ago, though, a streetwear sensibility started to leak into Riccardo Tisci’s gothic leanings and couture mastery, and ever since then, the brand’s signature graphic T-shirts, luxe sneakers and, more than anything, iconic handbags have been on the backs, feet and arms of basically every famous person on the planet. Today, we’re here to investiage the popularity of one piece in particular: the Givenchy Antigona Bag.

Despite being years old, the Antigona seems to be only growing in popularity, with even the most basic colors and materials sometimes hard to find toward the end of the season. In one version or another, its hung from the arms of the most beautiful and talented women in the world in amazing numbers, and we’ve collected several dozen pieces of proof of its popularity below.

Here’s Taylor Swift, leaving the gym in NYC in the cutest post-gym outfit ever, carrying what is undoubtedly her favorite bag of the year: the Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag. You can find a slightly more formal, brocade version of the Sara on sale for $1,274 (down from $1,820) at MATCHESFASHION.COM. It’s worth noting that this site is now offering free shipping and free returns (with full refunds on duties for returns) for US customers with the coupon code USAFREE.

Taylor loves this bag so much, we penned an extensive post about her love affair with the D&G Sara all the way back in April. In other news, is anyone else alarmed by the number of full grown, (presumably non-paparazzi) men that are standing around taking smartphone photos of Taylor? How about the guy who is obviously waiting to filch whatever she threw in the trash and list it on eBay?

Kesha was recently spotted at LAX looking rather well put together for someone whose name used to include a dollar sign. She’s carrying a very sophisticated black Fendi 2Jours Bag, customized with her initials. You can grab one for yourself for $2,350 at Nordstrom. This is a completely different Kesha than the one we saw at LAX back in April.

Kesha and her dude pal are traveling with his and hers pastel floral shorts, but don’t let that distract you from Kesha’s completely transparent top. (Though if you’re going fully transparent, that’s exactly the sort of bra you should wear underneath. I approve.) On a related note, lingerie as daywear seems to be trending as of this week – we just saw LA native Kourtney Kardashian flouncing around NYC in this pajama party-appropriate ensemble.

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, shopping in the Meatpacking District in NYC, wearing a rather casual ensemble that seems a little reminiscent of something one might see in a Kardashian boudoir. (I like the idea of wearing silk shorts in broad daylight conceptually, but I’m not sure it’ll ever catch on.) Her bag is an adorable Givenchy Antigona Mini Bag with red trim, which is currently on sale for $1,596 at SSENSE. (That’s 30% off the regular retail price of $2,200.)

We just saw Kourtney in the Hamptons last week on TalkShoes, wearing a pair of Stuart Weitzman wedges. Kourtney is the sole remaining Kardashian sister who is without her own edition of “Many Bags,” but while you’re waiting for us to whip that one up, you can take a look at the vast wealth of handbags that her sisters Kim, Khloe and Kylie and Kendall lay claim to.

Here’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, arriving at LAX looking as supermodel-perfect as she always does. Like most gorgeous celebs, Rosie spends an absurd amount of time navigating her way through throngs of paps and autograph-seekers in airports all over the world. Her bag du jour is in fact, a dark green Saint Laurent Sac du Jour. You can find a bag like Rosie’s in a pleasing earthy brown shade for $2,750 at Nordstrom.

Rosie is especially fond of the Saint Laurent Sac du Jour; she also owns one in black. Saint Laurent and Givenchy seem to be the brands she’s favoring pretty exclusively as of late, we just saw her carrying a beautiful Givenchy Ayers-Trimmed Antigona Bag earlier this month. You can marvel at all of Rosie’s high end handbag acquisitions and her many extremely glamorous airport looks in “The Many Bags of Rosie-Huntington Whiteley.”
