Here’s heiress Nicky Hilton, flitting about amongst the common folk of NYC, looking uber-feminine and carrying a pastel pink Chanel Flap Bag, of course. This is one of Nicky’s many, many Flap Bags, and you check out the rest of her Flap Bag stash in “The Many Bags of Nicky Hilton”, which is probably due for a redux soon.

Nicky Hilton has been leaning pretty heavily on the Chanel bags lately. We’ve featured her six times on PB this year, and five times out of six, she was carrying Chanel. Some of her more interesting recent Chanel acquisitions include this five-figure Chanel Boy Brick Clutch, and this similarly pricey and exclusive Chanel No.5 Perfume Bottle Clutch.

Here’s Lea Michele, out and about in NYC with her new boyfriend (who seems quite the gentleman), carrying a lovely leather Givenchy Nightingale Bag. You can find a shiny lambskin version of the Nightingale for $2,040 at Barneys. Lea’s quite a fan of Givenchy bags – we saw her with a Givenchy Mini Pandora Bag last year. (I suspect her Givenchy collection doesn’t end there.)

The Nightingale may not be quite as beloved by celebs as the Antigona is right now, but it’s certainly a style with staying power. (Megs first waxed poetic about the Nightingale way back in 2007!) If you love Givenchy as much as Lea Michele, you should check out our recent profile of all the celebrities who love and carry the Antigona.

Here’s Miranda Kerr, caught in a rare, (comparatively) casual moment outside of JFK. She’s carrying a calfhair A.L.C. Lucas Leopard Satchel and wearing a black leather pair of Birkenstock Arizona Sandals. You can find Miranda’s bag at Barneys for $1,095, and you can also pick up a pair of Birks just like hers for $120 at Net-A-Porter.

If you never tire of looking at street style pics of the absurdly stylish Ms. Miranda Kerr (we certainly never do), you can browse through “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr” and “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr, Part 2.” Miranda was also one of the first stars we profiled in our new “Many Shoes” series over on TalkShoes; don’t miss “The Many Shoes of Miranda Kerr!”

Although not everyone loves the world’s most famous momager, we think you’ll all have to agree that Kris Jenner not only has a rather impressive collection of handbags, but she has a more finely tuned sense of style than the vast majority of celebrities. Kris knows what she likes and where to find it, and more often than not, that means Chanel in neutral colors, Valentino in prints and anything that looks extremely expensive in shades of black and ivory, with an occasional pop of red to liven things up.

Whether you’re a Kris fan or just a fan of looking at great bags, we think you’ll enjoy what’s happening below, even if it’s in spite of yourself.

Here’s Maggie Gyllenhaal, arriving at the New York premiere of the new indie flick Very Good Girls, carrying both a Celine Trio Bag and a Bulgari Serpenti Bag. (Note the snake’s head clasp.) We approve of this kind of double-dipping. Celine isn’t sold online, of course, but you can find Maggie’s other bag in blue snakeskin for $2,850 at Bulgari.

Bulgari isn’t a brand that’s renowned for its handbags, but it does have a token handbag collection, and we have noticed Bulgari bags on the arms of celebs like Anna Dello Russo and Emmy Rossum recently. Each Bulgari handbag is crafted with extra-exotic skins and leathers. Thus, every bag is on the pricey side, with a suggested retail price of $2,000-$4,000.

Here’s Nina Agdal, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model and professional bikini-wearer, on the beach in Miami with a charming, two-tone Celine Nano Luggage Tote. Nina’s probably in the area for Miami Swim Fashion Week, which is taking place as we speak. Megs recently gave her own Celine Nano the “Purseonal” treatment, and you can gauge her opinion of this uber-popular mini here.

If you’re wondering what other designer bags celebs are getting a little sandy this summer, feel free to take a look at what all kinds of different celebs carry to the beach. Or if you’re more interested in all things Celine, have a gander at “Celebs and Their Celine Luggage Totes: A Retrospective”, and its very necessary follow-up post, “Celebs and Their Celine Luggage Totes: A Retrospective, Part Two.”

Here’s Reese Witherspoon, leaving her office in LA carrying a bright orange Maiyet Peyton Bag with white gussets. (What exactly does Reese do in her office all day, I wonder?) Notice how Reese has artfully matched her lip color to the exact hue of her Maiyet. You can find an all-black version of this bag with a croc-embossed calfhair front panel (yes, croc-embossed calfhair! Madness!) at Barneys for $2,350.

As our regular readers well know, Reese has a most exquisite handbag collection that easily trumps the collection of most other celebs on the planet. She gets a lot of points for quantity and diversity, mind you, but she wins based on the sheer infallibility of her bag choices. You can take the tour of Reese’s bag collection in “The Many Bags of Reese Witherspoon” and “The Many Bags of Reese Witherspoon, Part 2.” You can also take a peek at her similarly amazing shoe collection in “The Many Shoes of Reese Witherspoon” on our sister site, TalkShoes.

Here’s rapper Iggy Azalea, leaving dinner at Beverly Hills restaurant Crustacean with boyfriend Nick Young of the LA Lakers. She’s carrying a lavender Dior Addict Tote. This is a comparatively demure look for Iggy, and it’s world’s away from the outfits she wears on stage and on award show red carpets. It’s “weekday date night Iggy.”

Most people probably wouldn’t even recognize Iggy Azalea without her trademark ponytail pompadour hairstyle and bare midriff – though when you see someone carrying a Dior bag and hopping in to a six-figure ride with her NBA player boyfriend, it’s usually safe to assume they’ve attained some degree of celebrity. (Thanks, Kardashians!)

Here’s Real Housewife Nene Leakes, leaving last night’s taping of Watch What Happens Live in NYC. As you can clearly see, that’s a “customized” Hermès Birkin covered in all of Nene’s most infamous sayings from her time on Real Housewives. I’m sure you’ll all have some thoughts about this, but Nene can probably afford to spare a Birkin or two for self-promotional purposes.

There were a lot of online murmurs this month that Nene might be leaving RHOA because of a proposed paycut from Bravo, but she will indeed return for her 7th consecutive season of ATL drama. Nene is also poised to launch The Nene Leakes Collection on HSN at the end of the month. Her clothing line accommodates both standard and plus sized fashionistas and will make its debut on HSN on July 28th.

We see a lot of Hermès bags around here, but rarely do we see collections as spectacular as those of Petra and Tamara Ecclestone. We previously examined who the British heiresses are and where their seemingly endless supplies of dollars come from, and now we’re here to take a true, in-depth look at as many of the Ecclestones’ bags as we can find. In addition to Hermè, get ready to see a lot of Céline. (more…)
