Here’s Taylor Swift, out and about in NYC because she is apparently contractually obligated to appear for cameras in at least one cute-but-attainable outfit per day, regardless of weather conditions. Taylor is carrying a Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag that she’s been favoring recently. The Agata does not seem to be available online at the moment, but you can shop an extensive selection of Dolce & Gabbana at MATCHESFASHION.COM.

Before Taylor started carrying this bag, she was quite enamored with her Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag. In fact, she toted it around so often that we wrote a post about it. Taylor got her own edition of “The Many Bags of…” back in 2012, but her taste in handbags has evolved quite a lot since then. Her selections are always extremely versatile, just like the Agata and the Sara, and they tend to see a lot more daylight than the vast majority of celebrity-owned handbags.

Here’s actress Naya Rivera carrying an Hermes Kelly Bag during a recent coffee run in LA. We saw Naya pair this same Kelly with a drastically different outfit during New York Fashion Week back in February. The Kelly is generally considered a more ladylike bag, but the brand’s popularity among the young and rich has resulted in some less traditional styling, like you see here. (Hermes plus Nikes. Discuss.)

It has not been a great couple of months for Naya Rivera – first her engagement to rapper Big Sean went down in flames, and just yesterday it was announced that she won’t be re-joining the rest of the Glee cast for its sixth and final season, perhaps due in part to her behind-the-scenes feuding with co-star Lea Michelle. But as long as you have a good Hermes bag (and a few lucrative endorsement deals on the side), life can’t be all that bad, eh?

Although most of our celebrity handbag coverage is US-centric, we try to keep in mind that not only are a lot of our readers not American, but a lot of fantastic handbag collections exist in the closets of celebrities beyond our shores. We do our best to find those celebs in the archives of our photo agency, but over the years, I’ve noticed one very clear thing: paparazzi seem to love taking pictures of European athletes’ wives, girlfriends and ex-wives more than anyone else on the entire continent, or some reason. Those women also carry a ton of flashy handbags, perhaps unsurprisingly. (more…)

Here’s Goldie Hawn, out and about in LA over the weekend, sporting a look that’s very popular among wealthy ladies of leisure: Lululemon sweats and pricey designer handbags. The bag is a Chanel Paris-Edimbourg Quilted Satchel, and it’s from the brand’s Scotland-themed Metiers d’Art collection from last year. We loved that collection so much, we profiled it on three different occasions. You can see Chanel’s Paris-Edimbourg handbags here, the accessories here, and even more handbags here. (I don’t think tartan has ever looked better.)

Goldie probably has a pretty killer handbag collection, but it remains largely undocumented by paparazzi. She does share a love of Chanel with her daughter Kate, however, who has been hounded by paps pretty extensively over the years. You can peep at Kate’s bag stash in “The Many Bags of Kate Hudson.”

Louis Vuitton just reintroduced its classic Lockit bag (which originally debuted in the 1950′s), and A-list celebrities are taking to it like flies on flypaper, which bodes extremely well for the brand. Here’s Reese Witherspoon, leaving The Ivy in Santa Monica after lunch this past weekend, carrying a brand new, bright pink Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag. Karlie Kloss was among the first to carry it in public last week, and her Soft Lockit was pastel pink. Both Reese and Karlie’s bags already have customized initials on the cloche. No word on price and availability to the public yet, but those details should be made available shortly.

The Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit was one of the sexier bags featured in Michelle Williams’ latest LV campaign, which emphasized the brand’s latest crop of luxe, logo-lite options, like the Soft Lockit, the Capucines and the Alma. I actually greatly prefer the grey Soft Lockit with contrast stitching that appears in the ads to either Reese’s or Karlie’s.

Here’s the endlessly chic Rosie Huntington-Whiteley arriving at LAX, carrying a black Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote. In case you’ve forgotten, Rosie is a model and an actress, but everyone here probably just recognizes her from appearing in pics just like these and dressing impeccably, all of the time. (If this job has taught me anything, it’s that you absolutely can make a career out of that, somehow.) You can get Rosie’s exact Sac de Jour for $2,950 at Nordstrom.

I have no idea what Rosie’s last gig was (unless she got paid to go to Coachella, like everyone else), but I suspect that as long as she allows herself to be photographed in public, designer freebies will continue to magically appear on her doorstep. To that effect, Rosie has a suitably gorgeous collection of designer handbags, which you can peruse in “The Many Bags of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.” Also, stay tuned, because a follow-up edition of Rosie’s “Many Bags” seems inevitable.

The iconic Louis Vuitton Lockit appeared first in 1958, and seemingly endless new renditions have followed. The latest version, seen first in the brand’s new campaign with Michelle Williams, is my favorite by far. The supple Veau Cachemire of the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag provides a stunning appearance with a distinctive, ladylike feel.

I loved seeing this bag in the campaign images, but last week, supermodel Karlie Kloss brought the bag to life when she was spotted carrying it around her West Village neighborhood. Other than Michelle Williams’ ad campaign, Karlie seems to be among the first (if not the first to have her hands on this bag. What’s even more special, Karlie’s bag has her initials hot stamped on the cloche. It’s a stunning bag on a stunning woman, which makes for an amazing combination. Expect more info to come soon on the new Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit – we don’t have pricing or purchase information just yet.

Well, this is a first! As you probably know, Birkenstocks have experienced a strong resurgence in popularity in the last year, and I don’t need to educate anyone here on the prominence of Celine handbags, but it is most unusual to see Birkenstocks and Celine bags paired together! Here’s Mena Suvari, doing exactly that while leaving a nail salon in LA. She’s carrying a black Celine Trapeze Bag and wearing black Birkenstock Mayari Sandals. Celine bags are available at Celine boutiques, natch, but her Birks can be found for a mere $90 at

Strangely enough, I think the bag and the Birks work just fine together. (Ignore that everything in between in just gym clothes, and try to imagine Mena in a more everyday, actress casual outfit. OR superimpose whatever you think Reese Witherspoon might wear to tie everything together.) If you need more tips on how to style your Birks, there’s plenty of celeb inspiration in our Birk round-up post: “Believe It or Not, Celebs Love Birkenstocks” over on our sister site, TalkShoes.

Let’s not pretend this is anything more than what it actually is: earlier this week, Karl Lagerfeld threw his Chanel Artist Dinner at Balthazar, which is something he does every year as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. At that event, a wide swath of Lagerfeld’s harem showed up, all sporting impeccable Chanel bags, which were perhaps passed out at check-in. (We’re just guessing, but it feels true.) Singers, indie actresses, models, people who are famous for being well-liked by Karl Lagerfeld – the usual suspects were all there, and because it’s fun to look at those people carrying gorgeous bags, we’ve put together a little gallery of the festivities below. Happy Friday. (more…)

The stars of the upcoming revenge comedy The Other Woman have been jet-setting all over the world these past two weeks to promote their new flick, but actress Leslie Mann has been consistently “bag-blocked” by the large, luxurious bag choices of Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton, who always seem to be leading the pack. But at long last, we can see her press tour bag of choice – the ever-classy Hermes Kelly Bag, in a lovely shade of cerulean blue. Here’s Leslie arriving solo at LAX, presumably on her way home. (I can imagine she’s pretty grateful for a little alone time at this point.)

Blue was certainly the preferred hue of handbags during this paparazzi-tastic press tour. We saw Leslie’s costar Kate Upton carry a blue Celine Crocodile Luggage Tote in Sydney, Australia, and a blue patterned Fendi 3Jours Shopping Tote in Paris. A few savvy commenters actually spotted a black Hermes Kelly in the background in one of our Sydney pics, so it’s possible the Hermes Kelly is Leslie’s choice for every occasion.
