Here’s Rihanna, hanging out courtside with BFF Melissa Forde at the Clippers NBA playoff game at the Staples Center in LA. RiRi is matching her pink wig to her pink Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, which begs the question, which came first? The bag or the wig? It’s a real chicken/egg conundrum for our times. You can find Rihanna’s napa leather Givenchy duffel bag in a bright green hue for $1,965 at Barneys.

When we’re mentally ranking the celebs who are consistently carrying amazing designer bags or wearing amazing designer shoes (which we do often, in this game), Rihanna is always at the top of both lists. Her sprawling stash of designer wares can really only be rivaled by the likes of Kim Kardashian or Reese Witherspoon. You can see all of Rihanna’s best bags, shoes, and looks in “The Many Bags of Rihanna”, and “The Many Bags of Rihanna, Part 2″.

Here’s Kim Kardashian, navigating her way through LAX amid an enormous mob of paparazzi, carrying her extremely rare Hermes So Black Birkin, and we’ve seen her carrying this coveted Birkin before. Kim is quite the collector of exotic Birkins, in fact, it could easily be argued that she’s one of the most prolific Birkin collectors, because she has both the wealth and the high profile necessary to gain access to the really good stuff.

Kim does occasionally liquidate some of her Birkin assets, presumably so she can acquire even more Birkins. Here’s Kim with a 30 cm Himalayan Crocodile Birkin earlier this year, a bag which is rarely seen in the wild. You can view the majority of Kim’s Hermes investments (some of which are now owned by other Birkin/Kardashian paraphernalia collectors) in “The Many (Many) Bags of Kim Kardashian.”

Here’s one of Girls leading ladies, Allison Williams, filming on location for the hit HBO series in NYC. She’s carrying a white Rebecca Minkoff Elle Studded Satchel (or her character Marnie Michaels is carrying one, I suppose). Either way, a bright white Elle is a great bag for summer. (Interesting Allison Williams factoid: She’s the daughter of NBC News anchor Brian Williams. True story.) You can currently find a black Mini Elle for $395 at Nordstrom.

A few months ago, designer Rebecca Minkoff allowed us to take a peek inside her purse during NYFW for one of our What’s In Her Bag features. She was carrying a Rebecca Minkoff Perry Satchel, naturally. You can examine her Fashion Week arsenal in “What’s In Her Bag: Rebecca Minkoff.” You can also take a gander at her Spring 2014 handbag collection here.

Angelina Jolie is one of the closest people we currently have to a traditional movie star, and love her or hate her, what she wears is always notable, even if she often seems to be deliberately attempting to make sure it’s not. She doesn’t always carry handbags (usually because she’s also carrying a child or two), but when she does, her choices are often just as interesting for what they’re not as for what they are.

Unlike every other celebrity that we’ve profiled in our The Many Bags series, Angelina appears to own no Hermes, no Chanel, not even any Givenchy or Goyard. Instead, she’s faithful almost fully to Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent, both before and after the hacking-off of the “Yves.” In handbags, just as in seemingly everything else in her life from childbirth to activism, Angelina does it her way.

Here’s an enthusiastic Hilary Duff, hopping into a Porsche with her Chanel Boy Bag after running a few errands in West Hollywood. We saw Hilary carrying this same bag at Coachella last month. (Top places I would not take my Chanel bag: 1. The desert. 2. A music festival. 3. The gym. Number of Chanel-owning celebs who have violated my personal handbag-carrying rules: ALL.)

Regular PB readers already know that Hilary is a designer handbag-acquiring fiend, and that her love for Chanel can probably only be displaced by her love for Celine. She does carry other brands on occasion – a little Givenchy here, a little Goyard there – but her affinity for any other designer pales in comparison to her obsession with these two brands. You can see all of Hilary’s favorite designer handbags in “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff” and “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff, Part 2.”

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, arriving at LAX to catch a flight with boyfriend Scott Disick. Kourtney’s carrying the Celine Knot Tote. There was healthy speculation that this bag would be Celine’s third huge hit in a row, right behind the Luggage Tote and the Trapeze Bag, but the Knot Tote just hasn’t caught on with the designer bag-loving masses quite like either of its predecessors. However, based on this photo, it does seem to hold quite a bit and probably makes a pretty good handbag pick for air travel. (Also, it looks less like a picnic basket when it’s not overstuffed.)

The Kardashians are a particularly Celine-crazed bunch, so it comes as no surprise that the Celine Knot Tote isn’t Kourtney’s only bag from the brand; she also owns a baby blue Celine Trio Bag and a well-loved snakeskin Luggage Tote. Her sister Khloe owns numerous Celine bags, including Phantom Luggage Totes in several different colorways. You can see all of them in “The Many Bags of Khloe Kardashian.” Kourtney doesn’t have her own edition of “Many Bags” just yet, but she’s definitely one of the next on deck.

Here’s celeb stylist and Bravo reality show star Rachel Zoe, leaving a fancy private party in LA with a Givenchy Antigona Rottweiler Pouch in hand. The Rottweiler bags were originally released a couple of years ago, but they’ve since been reissued because of their massive popularity. The clutch does not seem to be available online at the moment, but you can find the Rottweiler tote for $1,085 at Barneys.

Rachel Zoe seems to be on a Givenchy kick as of late – we saw her carrying a sleek black Givenchy Lucrezia Bag with croc panels just last month. You can marvel at the depth and breadth of Rachel’s designer handbag collection in “The Many Bags of Rachel Zoe”, and take a peep inside her handbag du jour in “What’s In Her Bag: Rachel Zoe.”

Miley Cyrus was recently spotted leaving the 100 Club in London, carrying a Valentino Neon Camouflage Rockstud Tote. I suppose she’s now fully recuperated from exhaustion, or a bad reaction to antibiotics, or whatever they’re blaming her recent hospital stint on this week. You can get a neon pink version of Miley’s bag for $1,545 at Neiman Marcus. I like Miley’s 90s alterna-teen outfit, but an oversized tote really doesn’t seem like the ideal bag choice for clubbing. (I suppose not everyone’s down for my trusty “stuff money and ID in bra” approach.)

Select A-list celebs are crushing hard on Valentino’s Rockstud + camo combo. Katie Holmes actually owns two different Rockstud camo bags, to date. This seems to be Miley’s first Valentino Rockstud acquisition, but you can check out her extensive and extremely decadent handbag collection in “The Many Bags of Miley Cyrus”, and its absolutely necessary follow-up post, “The Many Bags of Miley Cyrus, Part II.”

Here’s Lily Allen, returning to London on Tuesday after attending the Met Gala in NYC Monday night, where she wore head-to-toe Chanel. Incidentally, she’s carrying a grey version of the Chanel Graffiti Backpack here with at least two Fendi Bag Bugs dangling from the zipper pull, which amounts to proof positive that Lily Allen is basically Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite person in the whole world, at this moment in time. You can currently snag a Bag Bug for $800 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Lily has enjoyed the benefits of a close relationship with Kaiser Lagerfeld ever since she was selected to be the face of a Chanel campaign back in 2009. She’s been carrying a ton of Chanel and Fendi over the past six months, but she does occasionally step out with other high end brands like Givenchy or Saint Laurent. You can see the bulk of her extremely enviable handbag collection in “The Many Bags of Lily Allen.”

We’ve been celebrating moms all week, and today, it seemed only fitting that we use our weekly celebrity handbag extravaganza to look at what some of the most famous (and most stylish) celebrity moms on the planet carry when they’re out with their kids. From Sarah Jessica Parker to Angelina Jolie, we were incredibly impressed by how these moms manage to keep it all together under intense paparazzi attention. Of course, being rich and famous probably helps in that pursuit.
