[Editor’s Note: While we rest up for the beginning of a new year and for all the great things it has in store, we’ll be running a modified schedule of both new posts and popular favorites from 2014, updated with new pictures and information. Below, we’ve inducted Liv Tyler into our Handbag Mom Hall of Fame.]

We’ve been celebrating moms all week, and today, it seemed only fitting that we use our weekly celebrity handbag extravaganza to look at what some of the most famous (and most stylish) celebrity moms on the planet carry when they’re out with their kids. From Sarah Jessica Parker to Angelina Jolie, we were incredibly impressed by how these moms manage to keep it all together under intense paparazzi attention. Of course, being rich and famous probably helps in that pursuit.


Victoria Beckham
Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin

As far as glamorous motherhood goes, no one is going to beat Vicky B., parenting with one arm and toting one of the world’s rarest Birkins on the other.

The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms-1

Sarah Jessica Parker
Coach Large Borough Bag
$798 via Coach

SJP is a tiny woman to be carrying both a child and a large Coach bag, but years living in New York prepare you for just this.

The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms-2

Liv Tyler
Givenchy Pandora Box Bag
$1,790 via Barneys

Lately, Liv’s been carrying this extra-boxy version of the classic Pandora; it’s compact and luxe, perfect for a West Village mom.

A crossbody is a smart way to go for moms of small children, and if it’s an exotic Dior crossbody, well, all the better.

Katie Holmes

I got caught in a Katie Holmes paparazzi scrum one time, so I can verify that the face Katie’s making is justified.

The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms-6

Liv Tyler
Stella McCartney Grace Crossbody Bag
Shop Stella McCartney via Net-a-Porter

Like many New York moms, Liv defaults to crossbody bags in the winter because they don’t slip off coat shoulders in that position.

Liv-Tyler-Stella-McCartney-Grace-Shoulder-Bag

Rachel Zoe
Hermes Birkin

Birkins are super popular among celebrity moms, and it’s not hard to see why – they’re luxurious, durable and roomy, if a little heavy if your kid doesn’t already walk on his or her own.

The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms-8

Kourtney Kardashian
Hermes Birkin

See? I’d never lie to you.

The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms-17

Liv Tyler
Proenza Schouler PS1 Boxy Satchel
Shop Proenza Schouler via Barneys

I’m not sure of what the technical name for this spin on the PS1 is; Proenza only made it for a season or two and my googling has been as yet unsatisfying.

oh god, the “captions”/commentary headlining these photographs are cringeworthy and downright annoying. were they really necessary? i regret reading through them all, hoping things will get better…w/out luck. they read like a page straight out of a high school yearbook… purseblog, can you please raise the intelligence/sophistication/’professional’ bar just a slight? i love a good wit and humor now and then, but the writer came off as a pubescent high school boy who’s the only one laughing at his own jokes…

now the bags and moms, on the other hand, chic!

Definitely unnecessary to criticize this article. It is cute and funny. Have a sense of humor and don’t be so rude. Let’s celebrate these moms and their beautiful bags!

Oh please, the captions were on-point and made the whole post much more enjoyable. With only pictures and names of the bags it would’ve been boring and I wouldn’t have watched it all the way down to the last bag.
Stop being rude and stop reading the captions if they irritate you that much – can you please raise the intelligence/sophistication/’mannerspleaseeventhoughthisistheinternet’ bar on your comments just a slight? Thanks love.

We added the captions because readers asked us to add them back to articles like this one after we stopped doing them for a while.

You can’t please everyone, but I’ll happily settle for pleasing the polite people.
