Here’s actress Emma Roberts, leaving the salon in West Hollywood with some fresh blonde locks and a Louis Vuitton Monogram Montsouris Backpack. This particular model of backpack is no longer made, and judging by the patina on this one’s leather trim, I’m guessing Emma picked it up as a vintage piece. In case you weren’t aware, you can now shop a vast assortment of vintage Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi and Gucci bags and accessories at ShopBop.

Emma Roberts has one of those Hollywood careers that perplexes me greatly. She’s never been in anything wildly successful; in fact her biggest earners might’ve been the PG flicks she first appeared in way back in 2006-2007. And yet, her star never seems to falter, regardless of whether or not she’s actually appearing in films. (I had the same thoughts recently about Rachel McAdams.) Anyways, Emma’s been around long enough to amass an impressive designer handbag collection, which you can peruse at your leisure here.

We’ve given Jessica Alba a fair amount of flack for going through designer handbags like most women go through bottled water, but here she is, leaving her company’s office building in Santa Monica, carrying a Chloé Baylee Perforated Bag that we’ve actually seen her carry before! We first spotted Jessica with this bag in tow during Paris Fashion Week back in March. You can find Jessica’s Baylee at Saks for $2,900.

Jessica literally carries a new bag every week, so it’s always nice to see her repeat something like a mere mortal. You can peruse her vast and expansive handbag collection in “The Many Bags of Jessica Alba” and “The Many Bags of Jessica Alba, Part 2″. Honestly, we could do a Jessica Alba edition of “Many Bags” seasonally, but we like to pace ourselves.

Our by-the-minute Taylor Swift bag coverage continues this week (of course). If you haven’t been following along, Taylor is now shamelessly baiting New York paps on a daily basis with great bags, shoes and clothes. (OR, she’s just trying to live her life as stylishly as possible, and an army of paps just happen to be following along.) If you know anything about pap life, you probably know that shots of celebs with nice bags or otherwise recognizable clothing sell well, for reasons you can probably guess. Here’s Taylor once again, walking toward or away from activities of an indeterminate nature in New York City, carrying a Prada Executive Tote, which is available in a similar color at Bergdorf Goodman for $2,430.

It seems that everyone’s favorite teen pop-country sensation has finally decided to abandon the whimsical braids and sundresses of yesteryear and embrace garments and accessories with a little more structure and integrity (and much, much higher price tags). We’ve long speculated that Taylor wanted to avoid flaunting high-end products because of her very young fans (unlike her contemporaries Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez), but now it seems all bets are off. There’s a follow-up post to “The Many Bags of Taylor Swift” coming down the pipeline in the very near future, PB readers, but while we all await it with bated breath, tell us: what do you think of Taylor’s style transformation?

Here’s Ms. Taylor Swift, taking her daily constitutional around the isle of Manhattan, carrying a sky blue Bulgari Isabella Rossellini Bag and wearing metallic Louboutins. Pricey handbag/cute dress/towering pumps is now T-Swift’s daily uniform. (I haven’t seen this girl in a pair of pants in at least two months.) You can find Taylor’s bag in burgundy red palmellato calf leather for $3,150 at Bulgari.

This is actually the second Bulgari bag we’ve written about in a week’s time (we recently saw Maggie Gyllenhaal carrying a Bulgari Serpenti Bag), which would be less notable if it weren’t a brand that we rarely spy celebs carrying in situations other than awards shows. Clearly, Bulgari is a brand on the rise, as of this week, at least from a handbag perspective.

Here’s supermodel Irina Shayk, crossing the street in the West Village while engrossed in her phone. She’s carrying a beautiful Givenchy Pandora Box Bag, which is (you guessed it) an even boxier, more structured take on the popular Pandora bag. You can find this extremely tempting new Givenchy design for $1,650 at Barneys.

We just saw Irina in the city last month with a bright blue Hermes Birkin. A simple maxi dress or skirt accented with a conspicuously high-end bag seems to be her go-to look for summer 2014. Irina doesn’t have her own edition of “Many Bags” just yet, but you can see some of her best handbags in “50+ Bags on the Arms of Our Favorite Supermodels.”

When I assembled the first edition of Nicky Hilton’s Many Bags series, it was the largest collection we had profiled to date. In the little over a year since then, it’s been eclipsed in size by a couple of other stars, but Nicky’s collection is still among my favorites because she’s so clearly One Of Us: a woman who looks to her handbags to pull our outfits together, whether she’s attending a formal event or just walking to her local bodega.

Of course, the fact that Nicky’s rich and famous gives her considerable access to incredible bags and the ability to acquire them at will, which is why we’ve found nearly three dozen new editions to Hilton’s collection since the last time we looked. Check out all of them below.

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving a fitness studio in West Hollywood, carrying a Louis Vuitton Speedy Empreinte 25 Bandoulière Bag and a Goyard St. Louis Tote. Strangely enough, we’ve seen Hilary carry both of these bags before, which is a definite first/sign of the end times. We know from extensive research that Hilary uses her many lightweight, durable Goyard totes as diaper bags and gym bags fairly frequently. Goyard doesn’t sell its bags online, but you can find Hilary’s Speedy for $2,840 at Louis Vuitton.

Hilary Duff’s handbag collection seems to expand exponentially with every passing season. If you feel the need to keep abreast of every Duff acquisition in recent history, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Though, be warned: it’s an alarming amount of handbags. Check out “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff” and “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff, Part 2.”

Here’s Lady Gaga, leaving her “Jazz at Lincoln Center” performance with the legendary Tony Bennett, dressed like a Jazz Age vamp and carrying a Balenciaga Cable Strap Fur Shopping Tote. These bags debuted on Balenciaga’s Fall 2014 runway, and you can currently find a black calfskin leather version for $2,055 at Neiman Marcus.

Her ladyship has an eclectic collection of designer handbags that includes a vast arsenal of “customized” Hermes Birkins, some of which will undoubtedly end up in a museum somewhere, someday. You can easily suss out which designers are her favorites by browsing “The Many Bags of Lady Gaga.”

Here’s heiress Nicky Hilton, flitting about amongst the common folk of NYC, looking uber-feminine and carrying a pastel pink Chanel Flap Bag, of course. This is one of Nicky’s many, many Flap Bags, and you check out the rest of her Flap Bag stash in “The Many Bags of Nicky Hilton”, which is probably due for a redux soon.

Nicky Hilton has been leaning pretty heavily on the Chanel bags lately. We’ve featured her six times on PB this year, and five times out of six, she was carrying Chanel. Some of her more interesting recent Chanel acquisitions include this five-figure Chanel Boy Brick Clutch, and this similarly pricey and exclusive Chanel No.5 Perfume Bottle Clutch.

Here’s Lea Michele, out and about in NYC with her new boyfriend (who seems quite the gentleman), carrying a lovely leather Givenchy Nightingale Bag. You can find a shiny lambskin version of the Nightingale for $2,040 at Barneys. Lea’s quite a fan of Givenchy bags – we saw her with a Givenchy Mini Pandora Bag last year. (I suspect her Givenchy collection doesn’t end there.)

The Nightingale may not be quite as beloved by celebs as the Antigona is right now, but it’s certainly a style with staying power. (Megs first waxed poetic about the Nightingale way back in 2007!) If you love Givenchy as much as Lea Michele, you should check out our recent profile of all the celebrities who love and carry the Antigona.
