This is excessive, even for the usual Birkin devotees we routinely feature in these posts. Long-time readers know the Birkin is not my favorite bag by leaps and bounds, but even I am dazzled by the sheer quantity and diversity of Birkins within! And, per usual, the end of NYFW compelled celebs to showcase their latest, most interesting new bag acquisitions.
Givenchy Pandora Box Bag
$1,995 via Net-a-Porter
Here’s Ashlee Simpson carrying a cute little black Givenchy Pandora Box as she heads into the Peppermint Club in LA with her husband Evan Ross.
We recently penned a blog post about Catherine Zeta-Jones’ Birkin collection, and here she is yet again with another one of her favorite Birkins. It actually looks she has a black leather Hermès Evelyne tucked under her jacket as well. Why leave home with just one?
Speaking of Birkins, here’s Heidi Klum leaving an LA salon with her own mustard yellow edition.
Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Bag
$3,000 via Neiman Marcus
Paps spotted Kelly Rowland leaving an office building in Beverly Hills with this supple woven brown leather Bottega Veneta bag. I never realized Kelly had so many ear piercings.
Stop the presses, Birkins now come in robin’s egg blue?! This is a shocking new development. (Okay, it’s not–this bag is from the brand’s Candy collection several years ago. But it’s lovely all the same.) Khloé Kardashian flaunted this Hermès acquisition at LAX recently.
Hermès Crocodile Birkin
Not to be outdone, Kim Kardashian carried this extra exotic croc Birkin outside of her NYC apartment. Between her coat, bag, and shoes, there’s probably a small European zoo’s worth of critters.
Gucci Bengal Top Handle Bag
$1,850 via Gucci
Lindsay Lohan is in town for NYFW, and she popped in to visit the ladies at The View before heading back to olde London towne. She’s carrying an extremely fun Gucci Bengal Top Handle Bag. Gucci is apparently using this superimposed tiger-logo pattern on many different styles now, and I want them all.
Yves Saint Laurent Muse Bag

Finally, here’s Paula Abdul at LAX with a true throwback: a Yves Saint Laurent Muse Bag. It’s an oldie but a goodie, and it seems to have aged particularly well.
