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.

Prada Pre-Fall 2014 Bags

Prada Pre-Fall 2014 handbags have arrived for pre-order via Bergdorf Goodman, and you’re likely to see some things you recognize, both from Prada and elsewhere. First, the marquee lady-face bags from Spring 2014 are back for a second round, this time in a slightly simplified clutch form that won’t cost you quite as much.

Mother's Day: Prada Pairs

Prada Saffiano Cuir Double Bag

My penchant for Prada has taken a significant upturn, mainly thanks to Scandal’s Olivia Pope. Liv dresses so elegantly yet always looks comfortable, and this combination is ideal to me. Her accessory game is spot-on, always relying on classic beauties, and her preference for Prada has caught the eyes of many handbag lovers.

Prada Fall 2014 Handbags 6

You’ll notice two things about Prada’s Fall 2014 handbags: first, holy chain handles, Batman. Second, they don’t look a lot like Prada handbags as we’ve known them in the recent past. Miuccia Prada sent out a more tightly edited collection of bags than she has on her past several runways, in which every model had a bag in her hands.

Prada Saffiano Girl Print Bag Black

Prada’s artistic Spring 2014 runway bags caused a ton of buzz and conversation within the fashion industry, as Prada is wont to do, and we’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for them to make their retail debut so that we could get a better look at the details and how much the bags will cost.

Prada Saffiano Embroidered Shoulder Bag

I love Prada and hate “rustic” things, so you can imagine the cognitive dissonance I feel when I gaze upon the Prada Saffiano Embroidered Shoulder Bag. With a different kind of embellishment, I’d probably be all over a bag of this size, shape and structure from one of my favorite brands.

Claire Danes carries a tan Prada bag in NYC (5)

My 90s heroine Claire Danes was recently spotted walking her adorable dog WeeGee in Soho, NYC with a Prada Saffiano Cuir Open Promenade Bag and a diaper bag of unknown origin. Her hat seems totally appropriate for the utterly dreary weather we experienced in NYC this weekend; unfortunately it didn’t help disguise her from the paps at all.

Jennifer Garner carries a check-print Prada bag in LA (5)

As we’re putting together features for our much beloved “The Many Bags of…” series, the long-term bag-carrying habits of certain celebs are always brought to light. Case in point: “The Many Bags of Jennifer Garner” perfectly illustrated Jennifer Garner’s almost exclusive preference for neutrals.

Miranda Kerry carries a pink Prada bag in NYC (5)

Sure, sure, Miranda Kerr always looks fabulous when she steps outside the house, right? Why do we bother? I’ll tell you why we bother – because she always looks fabulous in an entirely exciting way, and she’s always clad in designer wares from head to toe.
