The Many Bags of Kim Kardashian

We’ve been waiting a long time to do this one, and finally, The Many Bags of Kim Kardashian has arrived. The controversial reality star’s bag collection is easily the biggest one we’ve ever dug through, and you might be a little bit surprised by what we found: a lot of fairly conservative choices among the seventy-plus bags we found, many of them used repeatedly over the span of years.

“Kim Kardashian” has practically become a synonym for the excessive vacuousness of fame, but when you get down to it, Kim seems to both really enjoy her handbag collection and choose its contents wisely and with considerable care. She also seems to buy a lot of her bags herself, instead of receiving endless freebies and carrying whatever brands will send her. Hermes very famously does not give freebies or discounts to celebs, and Kim has most certainly spent plenty of her wealth on the acquisition of little (and big) orange boxes. Time and again, I found bags she’s used in the past couple of months popping up in paparazzi pictures from 2009 and 2010, which is a much more judicious use of her handbag backlog than many of us can claim. I’ve never been a Kardashian hater (or a Kardashian lover; I am mostly ambivalent), but after spending a few hours putting these photos together, I wouldn’t mind having a cocktail with Kim. Or looking through her closet, at the very least.

    72 bags … a bit too many to see. I gave up at 32nd.

  • Sandra

    I would be lying if I did not confess I am a little in awe of the Hermes collection…consider the money spent on those alone.

  • Blair Sylvester

    her bags aren’t bad but her clothes and shoes and accessories are terrible. It’s like putting a great kitchen in a badly decorated home.

    • Amanda Mull

      I felt sort of the same way when I got done finding these photos – Kim’s taste in bags is clearly her best aesthetic impulse.

    • sara

      I think if her clothes were not quite so low and so tight, her wardrobe wouldn’t be too bad. I actually quite like some of her outfits.

  • Kate

    Whoops! Number 46- Celine Phantom luggage tote, not Hermes!

    • Amanda Mull

      Will fix! I knew at least one bag name would get shuffled to the wrong bag in the process.

      • Denise

        The Muse Two looks like an LV

      • Guest

        Number 36, I think it should be ‘Brogues’ covered!

  • eileenwestsixteen

    I love the bags but I also love the photo collage showing her boyfriend and self-tanner evolution.

    • Megs Mahoney Dusil

      It shows tons of evolution on so many fronts! haha

      • Chloe

        And engagement ring evolution! After a few pics, looking at her left ring finger to figure out the “era” became part of the game haha!

      • eE

        Could have just looked at her “face”…

  • Pattie Killeen Cowan

    Can one actually have too many Birkins? I believe she does. Perhaps she would consider donating one to the needy… ????. ????

    • RY

      her donating something??? hahahaha, she only knows how to take, not give…..

      • Pattie Killeen Cowan

        Worth a shot… : )

  • laura

    for some reason her collection doesn’t impress me. I like Khloe’s better.

    • Amanda Mull

      We’ll be doing the rest of the Kardashians this year!

      • emo.gen

        I’ll be looking for that Amanda..

      • Saymama

        Much more interested in seeing Kourtney’s bag collection. I love her style the most of all the sisters + mother.

  • Lynne

    Also included, the many faces of Kim Kardashian

    • Lisa

      Exactly what I was thinking! Number 28 for instance is an oldie.

  • pe.riche.

    I think we can all agree that a girl can never have too many handbags! Lol.

    But I think the issue with Kim is that she doesn’t seem to appreciate the art of handbags. It seems as if she purchases them solely because they are expensive. Maybe I’m reaching here, but I don’t think she actually understands or appreciates the craftsmanship and creativity that goes into a beautifully crafted bag.

    • jen


    • londonhermit

      She doesn’t purchase anything she gets sent most of those bags for free.

      • tyler

        did you miss the part in the article about how hermes dont give freebies to anybody and considering the most of her bag seem to be hermes and they are the most expensive bags she owns your comments are proven false. you should what you write on the internet, this is slander and you can get sued because of it.

      • londonhermit

        Um what? Kim is a low life let me give you an example. She stole Brandi Norwood’s moms credit card number back in 2005/6 and let her sisters and other family members rack up 120,000 in debt then refused to pay for it until Brandi’s mom filed a lawsuit. To avoid criminal charges kimmode paid up. Purse forum runs a great sit and I love the many bags of but what I said about kim is true. She get clothes sent for free often. One site I read posted about the things the designers sent for that baby she had. It’s no secret celebs get sent things free. Uggs sent celebs items to wear to PSH funeral for godsake.

      • jelly

        wow i can’t believe the hatred comments here..ladies we all love
        bags and if you could afford would you resist from more Hermes bags?
        isn’t that all celebs receive free things from brands? how do you know
        that everyone else appreciates the craftsmanship except Kim? it’s just bag haters..look at other celebs bags it’s as overwhelmingly expensive as hers. nothing really special

      • TheIcePrincess

        I think you need to understand the legalese you throw around before you throw it. Slander is spoken, libel is written thus no one on earth can be sued for slander for writing a comment on a blog or anywhere for that matter. Further, I highly doubt with ALL the negative comments about the Kardashians online, in print and spoken on television and radio (especially directed at Kim) that the savvy Kardashian legal team would choose to sue over a comment made by someone who correctly stated that Kim receives freebies from designers. Londonhermit said NOTHING about Hermes sending Kim free purses so it was your own assumption that londonhermit meant that Hermes gave her free bags. You can’t sue someone for libel (see above for the difference between slander and libel) for an incorrect statement and although you may disagree with the comment, it hardly impacts Kim’s livelihood, reputation (ha!) or earning power.

        See how complicated legal issues can be? You should know that before you try to incorrect legal terms as a defense for your favorite reality show “stars”.

      • Janjan

        u, sir, are retarded.

  • w.cheng

    My favourite is the bottega venetta vendome croc

    • anouk

      Bottega Venetta is really LOVE for me! She can have all the whitenings and arse injections!

  • Jai

    What kind of mono massacre keepall is she carrying near the end? I don’t think I’ve seen one with a plate on the front.

    • peanutbutterparry

      it is the waterproof version

  • Jennifer

    My favorites are the Chanels & the Bals. Seeing the really old pap pix reminds me of how much I really did like the first season or 2 of the Kardashians. She seemed a lot more normal in those old pix.

  • Lilly

    Geezus, her collection is insane, and I love it! Out of the 72, I want all but maybe one or two. I read that she has 20 Birkin’s, and I counted. Lucky girl can afford it, good for her. I also love most of her style, most pre-Kanye.

  • JM

    Kim looks better with a more natural, less make up look. Her outfits aren’t so bad, I guess it’s just that maybe a lot of them are too tight?

    Her handbags choices are just perfect though. :)

  • Melocoton

    What an evolution of all sorts is right! I love that pink Kelly. So fresh and elegant.

  • bsprout

    This is a beautiful collection of bags- surprisingly understated. I thoroughly enjoyed looking at it. Thanks for putting this

  • londonhermit

    Kims bag collection is a reflection of her life. Excessive, unearned and then tossed to the back of the closet.

    • AddisonDewitt

        Nice scripture quote addison.

  • londonhermit

    Kims bag collection is a reflection of her life: unearned, excessive and thrown to the back of a closet.

    • CindyB

      I couldn’t have said it better myself, londonhermit. Kim is famous for being a s-l-u-t. She’s famous because she made a sex tape. She’s neither “fabulous” or “beautiful”. She’s a P-I-G, PIG.

    • bradpeater757

      Six months ago I lost my job and after that I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a great website which literally saved me. I started working for them online and in a short time after I’ve started averaging 15k a month… The best thing was that cause I am not that computer savvy all I needed was some basic typing skills and internet access to start… This is where to start——————————–,,,…,.,.

  • Jen

    I disagree with some of you folks! I think just as her bag collection, Kim and her wardrobe are fabulous. She is really a beautiful woman.

  • jen

    I don’t care for her, but I love her bag collection! Is it possible to add a place to pin these articles/galleries to Pinterest?

  • CarrieK

    Like most of you, I’m a bit underwhelm by her bag collections and I think the main reason is the lack of variation. She likes to buy different versions of the same bag, for instance, she has 4 black birkins. One with gold hardware, one with silver hardware, one with black hardware, and a black crocodile. She also has many balenciga city bags in different color. To me that made her collections a bit boring.

  • Ruby

    Well she certainly knows how to make expensive bags look cheap.

  • Smitha

    How many birkins does one socialite need? I also probably shouldn’t be so surprised that not a single diaper bag made this new mom’s list.

  • Olivia C. Jenkins

    Not a bad bag collection at all, but some of Kim’s outfits…. Uhh pretty terrible

  • RY

    ughhhh….. really, out of so many beautiful inside and out women, your pick was Kartrashian?

  • CindyB

    Can’t you find anyone else to write about? Kim Kardashian is a slut. She’s famous because she made a sex tape. She’s a no talent bum. If I happen to stumble across one of her shows, I can’t change the channel fast enough. She deserves NOTHING. She’s a SKANK

  • Livin Out Loud

    …her mother…..her boobs….her personality….her life…bag lady

  • jenkt

    I went through and tried to tally the approximate amount she would have paid and came up with about $400,000 for the collection- the “big ticket item” (hah! just “one”) being the crocodile birkin.

    • londonhermit

      Thank the fashion gods she is sent them for free. No skin off her nose kinda.

  • Jenny @

    Whoa, GRIZZLY Birkin?!

  • Geez..

    Two words- BRAND DILUTION

  • Dei

    Combined..the amount she spent on BAGS alone can feed hundreds of starving people in more than 50 countries!!!!*smh

  • Astounded

    I must chime in and say that one can never have too many Birkins or Kellys for that matter. As long as an individual is grounded and gives back, who cares what she/he buys. Although she did get (in)famous via the tape, I have to disagree about Kim not working for her money. Some funds come more easily for some things she does as apposed to other money.

  • AddisonDewitt

    Birkins are ugly

    • ebelinap

      you know this counts like a sin or something in this blog right? :p

  • Ellis

    Kourtney’ s style is way better. Please make a ‘the many bags’ of her and of khloe too. :)

  • Jen

    I’d love to share this on Pinterest. Can you start enabling it for Pins??

  • Rashida

    I think she is lovely and has great taste in bags!

  • Ashley

    Wow, she is crazy to have a lot of Hermes bags, which are super expensive!!! But she is nice

  • iReezy

    Well, if nothing else, I’ve learned that she’s a fan of the Birkin…

  • Nicole Calhoun

    Kim is not very smart. She is not a Trump, a Hilton, or a Buffett. IF (and that’s HUGE if) she paid for all the Birkin’s alone, we are talking at least a half million spent on….purses. I guess she thinks her money will last forever like those professional athletes that go broke. I wouldn’t doubt it if each one of those bags came from men she has s*r*wed; either in the light of day or on the DL.

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go? to tech tab for work detail

    I would say she has very good taste-was kind of surprised! I think a Louis Vuitton Monogram looks best when one is wearing jeans-a Chanel flap doesn’t work as well. Chanel looks best with dresses.
