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.”

People got excited for a hot minute when Kim Kardashian tweeted that she had dyed her hair blond again, but then Kim later burst everyone’s bubble by revealing via Instagram that her new blond locks were actually just a wig. Which is too bad, because I liked blond Kim. Here she is, reveling in her flaxen-haired deception for a day on the streets of NYC. Her bag is her trusty Hermes So Black Birkin, which works extremely well with Kanye’s uber-strict designer dress code.

Kim has been carrying this bag a lot recently – here she is holding it close at LAX last month, and here she is just last week in NYC, carrying it with another all-black ensemble. You can check out all of Kim’s many Birkins in “The Many, Many Bags of Kim Kardashian.” To her credit, she has only been seen carrying this hand-painted Hermes nightmare that Kanye gifted her last X-mas once.

Here’s Nicky Hilton, wandering lower Manhattan on her cell phone (as we so often see her doing), carrying what’s apparently her latest acquisition: the rather conspicuous Chanel No. 5 Perfume Bottle Clutch. This clutch is an extremely expensive runway piece that retails for a hefty five figure sum, and it’s very hard to come by. Unless you’re a Hilton, of course.

Nicky clearly has a good relationship with her local Chanel boutique, as evidenced by the vast quantity of the brand’s bags in “The Many Bags Nicky Hilton.” This is actually the second uber-pricey Chanel clutch we’ve seen Nicky carrying this month. Our spies spotted in her in Manhattan a few weeks ago with one of her favorites – the Chanel Boy Brick Clutch, which also retails for five figures.

I’m not even sure how to explain Anna Dello Russo. She’s a fashion luminary and Editor at Large for Vogue Nippon, but she’s also a street style caricature whose willingness to wear all of the most fabulous things, all at once, has helped change the way that everyone from high-ranking editors to budding bloggers conduct business. Love or her hate her, ADR is always worth looking at. (more…)

Air travel frequently calls for multiple carry-ons, which gives discerning handbag shoppers like Kate Upton ample opportunity to flaunt a few of their latest acquisitions. Here’s Ms. Upton arriving at the airport in NYC, carrying two bags: the little white croc-embossed one is a Rag & Bone Enfield Mini Shoulder Bag, and the big black one with intricate floral detailing is a Dior Bar Bag (named after the famous Dior bar-waist jackets). Dior doesn’t sell its bags online, of course, but you can pick up the Rag & Bone bag for $550 at Shopbop.

I enjoy how the random passersby in these pics all seem to be having the same epiphany at once: this person is far too attractive NOT to be a celebrity. (I’m sure the paparazzi cameras were also a big giveaway.) Kate was recently featured in our special, supermodels-only edition of our “Many Bags of” series, which you can find here. Her handbag collection isn’t quite big enough to merit her own “Many Bags” feature just yet, but that will certainly not be the case by this time next year.
