What’s the right bag to carry this summer? For these celebs, the choice is clear — as long as they know where they’re going.

The Beach Sac: Niki Taylor recently picked up this sequined plaid number by the French company Jamin Puech at Calypso St. Barths, a store near the shore in East Hampton, N.Y. Price: $250 — steep unless you’re a supermodel. Naomi Campbell also shops at Calypso but prefers her bags beaded.

The Premiere Purse: To help launch the X-Files movie, Tea Leoni showed up with husband David Duchovny carrying J.P. Tod’s elegant black satin bag. Price: $590. Bonus: J.P. Tod’s has loafers to match.

The Day Tripper: A perfect companion for a stroll down Madison Avenue or Rodeo Drive, this Prada canvas tote is carried by Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder. Price: $760. Thank goodness, it went on sale.

The Disco Bag: The New York-based Zoe Metro’s ultra-slim ’70s-style bags (800-219-2324) are the purses of choice for Mariah Carey when she’s hanging in NYC hot spots like Moomba. Price: $85-125. For good luck, each bag has a 15th-century Chinese coin sewn inside. Like she needs it. -DP
