Nicky Hilton Adds a Chanel Clutch to her Huge Bag Collection

Here’s Nicky Hilton, attending an NYC screening of Jim Jarmusch’s new vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive and carrying a Chanel Boy Brick Clutch. Nicky has an incredibly prolific bag collection, but she seems to be favoring eternally chic black Chanel bags as of late. We saw her out with her sister Paris a few months ago with a very stylish Chanel Chain Boy Bag, and last summer we spotted her in LA with a Chanel Quilted Chain Strap Bowler Bag.

Even with all of her recent Chanel acquisitions, Chanel bags only represent a small fraction of Nicky’s huge, ridiculously diverse bag collection. If you haven’t yet seen her edition of “The Many Bags of…”, it’s undoubtedly one of the best we’ve ever done. (And yes, we feel obliged to draw attention to it every time her name appears on the site, and we won’t stop until we can rest assured that every PB reader is well acquainted with the majesty that is Nicky Hilton’s handbag stash.)

Hilary Duff Carries Both Celine and Givenchy to the Gym

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving the gym in West Hollywood (in a pair of heels, no less!), clearly showered, blow-dried and ready to take on her post-workout day. She’s carrying both a Celine Luggage Tote and a Givenchy Antigona Bag – one bag for pre-gym, one bag for post-gym, I suppose? Celine bags aren’t sold online, but you can pick up a pale grey Givenchy Antigona similar to Hilary’s for $2,435 at Barneys.

If you’re shopping for a similar look at a markedly lower price point, do check out Amanda’s latest post in our ongoing “5 Under $500″ series: “5 Under $500: The Palest Shades of Grey.” As our regular readers well know, Hilary has an exceptional handbag collection – it’s so good, in fact, that it merits frequent revisiting. You can browse through all of her Celines and Givenchys in “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff” and “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff, Part Two.”

Angelina Jolie Travels with Saint Laurent

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and a significant portion (if not all) of their brood were seen departing LAX earlier this week after returning from a lengthy family trip to Australia. Angie is carrying a black Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Suede Tote. Saint Laurent has dressed Angelina for several red carpets since Hedi Slimane took the reigns of the brand, so it’s not surprising that they sent a few new bags her way. You can find a black leather version of Angie’s bag for $2,950 at Nordstrom.

Angie’s bag selections have been pretty top-notch as of late. We saw her with a beautiful Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag just a few months ago. Unlike other celebs we feature more frequently on PB, Angie seems to pick a bag (a pretty high-end bag, natch) and stick with it for a while, rather than debuting a new (presumably free) bag every week and retiring it the next. I’m looking at you, Jessica Alba/Reese Witherspoon/Miranda Kerr.

Celine Dion’s Celine Bag was Apparently Not a Fluke

Celine Dion’s lust for Celine bags can clearly not be sated by just one. (Can’t say we blame her.) Here she is carrying a sublimely navy blue calf leather Celine Classic Box Bag with gold hardware, while ambling around Paris with her husband. She does seem to exhibit a strong preference for the Celine Box – she carried a leopard calf hair and black leather version of the same bag just a few weeks ago. Celine and Celine! It makes me happy for reasons I needn’t articulate.

Celine is having a particularly good month, career-wise – she just released “Loved Me Back To Life”, her highest charting album since 2003, and it was recently announced that she’ll be hosting a CBS X-mas special “A Home for the Holidays”, which is set to air on December 18th. She’s also about to embark on a European tour, and she’ll be resuming her Vegas show at Caesar’s Palace in the summer of 2014.

Emmy Rossum Is Ready For Spring In An Affordable Coach Crossbody Bag

Here’s the ridiculously pretty and perfect Emmy Rossum, carrying her “Bright Coral” Coach Legacy Mini Tanner Crossbody Bag after a lunch date in Beverly Hills, CA. I love this Mini Tanner for so many reasons: the bold, eye-popping spring hue, the lavishly oversized tassels, and the fact that it’s just big enough to fit an e-reader, for starters. But what I especially love is the miniature price tag. You can grab this bag for only $258 at Coach. It’s also available in black leather and Coach’s signature legacy pattern.

Ok, truth talk time. Why isn’t Emmy Rossum the face of at least one major cosmetics brand? She has such a great face and amazing alabaster skin! Yes, she did one of Cotton’s “The Fabric of My Life” campaigns last year, but why isn’t this chick trying to sell the 28-35 age demographic on some sort of moderately priced skincare product already?

Are you listening, Clinique?

Khloe Kardashian rings in SPRING with a buttery Celine bag

Khloe Kardashian is acquiring quite an impressive collection of Celine bags – here she is carrying a pale yellow Celine Luggage Tote after leaving a business meeting with sister Kim and momager Kris. Earlier this year we spotted her on the sidelines of a Clippers game with a very enviable python flap Celine trapeze bag. Celine bags are only available from Celine boutiques and high-end department stores – a source of continuous irritation to bag lovers everywhere.

Khloe may want to cool it on the bag-buying for the time-being – as you’ve probably heard, Khloe and Lamar have received some flack recently for reportedly not donating a single penny of the millions of dollar’s they’ve raised for Lamar’s charity Cathy’s Kids to cancer research, one of the main causes the charity was originally intended to support.

The Many Bags of Amanda Seyfried

This may sound a little bit weird, but I’m really glad that Amanda Seyfried is famous. I’ve been a fan of hers since the halcyon days of Mean Girls, in which she stole every scene she was in, and I’ve been silently rooting for her success ever since. And now, here she is, with a big role in Oscar-nominated Les Miserables and several more films in the pipeline. I normally have an instinctual dislike for other Amandas, but I can’t help cheering for Ms. Seyfried.

In addition to sharing a name, it seems as though we also share a some opinions on handbags. Amanda carries a lot of Givenchy, seems to favor black, and when she really loves a bag, she carries it for weeks on end without switching. Beyond just carrying the brand’s bags, it seems as though she might have an in with the Givenchy team – she had the Lucrezia Satchel long before it was even available for pre-order. Check out her full collection in the slideshow below.

Speaking of the Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, let’s start there. Seyfried hung on to this bag for quite a while, and the simple construction and dark color fit her taste perfectly.

Kim Karadarshian and Kanye entertain the paparazzi with shopping, ice cream-eating and Celine

As we’ve discussed previously, the pairing of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, no matter how manufactured and publicity-driven it might be, makes me giddy with happiness on a level I can’t explain. Nevermind that the whole thing is made for TV and probably the result of an actual written contract – these two are made for each other, on a certain level. Or maybe they just deserve each other, but I guess that depends on your opinions on Kim and Kanye.

These photos of the “couple” were snapped near the Kirna Zabete and Louis Vuitton boutiques in Soho over the weekend, and I can’t help but wonder if Kim popped in to Dash, which is right around the corner, and gave the hordes of people waiting in line to get in a thrill. Yes, there are people who line up on the street in order to be granted access to the Kardashians’ boutique, which contains no actual Kardashians. They’re standing there on the sidewalk every time I go to Soho. Yes, they should all be shot into the sun. But maybe this weekend, they got to see a little bit of a show? At the very least, I’m sure they appreciated Kim’s Celine Phantom Luggage Tote in cream suede.

Kim Kardashian’s Gift to Bridesmaids on Her Wedding Day

If you were Kim Kardashian’s bridesmaid on her wedding day, you would have been a lucky gal. Not only would you be given the chance to walk down the aisle of a glamorous wedding, but you would also be given a customized Judith Leiber clutch as a thank you gift from Kimmy K herself. The clutches all have the initials of Kim’s bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law emblazoned on them.

Kim Kardashian

As for Kim, she wasn’t lacking in the gift department herself. Judith Leiber designed a handbag in the style of Kim’s wedding cake that was filled with black and pearl detailing. Being a devout fan of Judith Leiber since she was a little girl, it’s no wonder Kim chose this luxury designer to make gifts for those closest to her.

Demi Lovato is Our Latest Givenchy Antigona Lover

Here’s X-Factor judge/pop starlet Demi Lovato, carrying a particularly gorgeous, glossy new Givenchy Antigona Bag at Heathrow Airport. Demi has pretty specific taste in designer bags, as evidenced by “The Many Bags of Demi Lovato.” Even as a Disney-fied tween, she demonstrated a real penchant for Gucci, Prada and Givenchy, and we’re thoroughly unsurprised that she’s added a classic downloads online casino winner
Givenchy bag like this one to her growing collection. You can purchase this supple Italian goat leather bag for $2,405 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Apparently Demi’s time in the UK ended on a bit of a downer after ambulances had to be summoned to an oversold gig at the London Palladium. A few fans were reportedly crushed inside the venue – details are still sketchy, but no one seems to have sustained any critical injuries. Demi’s fans, also known as “Lovatics”, were already pretty hysterical after fans who camped out overnight were rewarded with free tix to the same gig, even though the venue had previously insisted anyone who showed up before 10 am would not receive any.
