The Many Bags of Taylor Swift Part 2

In some ways, it seems like Taylor Swift has been daring me to write a second investigation into her handbag collection all summer. Every day when I open our photo agency’s archives, there are new photos of her walking to and fro in New York City, enjoying her morning constitutional, her evening constitutional and sometimes several constitutionals in between, generally wearing a two-piece matching outfit and a handbag dangling from her forearm.

Amy Adams Salvatore Ferragamo Fiamma Bag

Here’s Amy Adams, heading into (and then out of) the same Brentwood party that we saw Kerry Washington attending over the weekend. Apparently it was a “gifting party,” which explains why she’s carrying a nice bag of goodies on the way out.

Kerry Washington Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag

Here’s Kerry Washington, attending a private party in LA with a Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag, which was one of the most eye-catching pieces from the brand’s Spring 2014 collection. The line has long since sold out, but it was so popular that Prada is doing some more girl clutches and things for the upcoming season, like this close-up version: the Napa Zip Girl Clutch, which is currently available at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,195.

Famke Janssen Prada Gardener's Tote

Here’s actress Famke Janssen, coming out of a fancy pet supply store in NYC with her adorable senior pup, Licorice. Her bag is a mint blue Prada Saffiano Gardener’s Tote, which is extremely similar to the Prada Executive Tote we saw Taylor Swift carrying recently.

Karlie Kloss Jason Wu Jourdan Tote

Here’s supermodel Karlie Kloss, running errands in NYC and doing a quick pop-in at Taylor Swift’s Tribeca apartment, all while carrying a black Jason Wu Jourdan Tote. Karlie is among Wu’s favorite models, so it’s no surprise to see her toting one of the designer’s most popular bags.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Victoria Beckham Quincy Tote

Here’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, shopping, strolling, and trying not to trip over semi-feral cats in LA, all while carrying a white Victoria Beckham Quincy Tote. Rosie has almost exclusively carried Saint Laurent and Givenchy bags this year, so a Victoria Beckham tote is a bit of a departure for her, brand-wise.

The Many Bags of Celebrities at LAX

In a lot of ways, air travel is the great equalizer. Only the richest of the ultra-rich fly exclusively private, and for run-of-the-mill famous people, even A-listers, working means boarding a lot of commercial flights. Often those flights either land or originate at Los Angeles International Airport, or LAX, where paparazzi are poised every day to document one of the few mundane activities that a star can’t protect or control: checking in, checking her bags and walking to security.

Emma Roberts Louis Vuitton Monogram Montsouris Backpack

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.

Jessica Alba Chloe Baylee Bag

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!

Taylor Swift Prada Executive Tote

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.
