With her documentary Beyonce: Life is But a Dream debuting on HBO this Saturday and her barnstorming Super Bowl halftime performance still fresh in the minds of almost everyone, today seemed like a fitting occasion to pay bag tribute to the one and only Beyonce. With the entourage that rolls with her and Jay-Z, though, I’m surprised that Queen Bey still deigns to carry her own bag from time to time. Surprised, but glad.
I’m also surprised by the sheer diversity of the bags that Beyonce carries. She doesn’t repeat designers nearly as often as almost everyone else we’ve profiled in one of these features, and her choices vary by price point as much as they tend to vary by brand. In Beyonce’s bag closet, there’s probably a little something to make everyone happy. I’d expect nothing less.
