Over the past couple months, we've been slowly working our way through not only the best handbag collections in Hollywood, but also through our mental list of girl crushes - women for whom we feel an enthusiasm and fondness that borders on romantic. A couple of weeks ago, we checked out Megs' biggest girl crush, Jessica Alba, and this week, we're on to a girl crush of my very own - Miranda Kerr.
It's not that I'm an enormous fan of her professional work - I make a concerted effort to avoid the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show every year - but instead, it's Kerr's personal style that makes me swoon. She's generally regarded as a commercial model, but any time she's photographed out and about, she always looks utterly impeccable. Beyond reproach, even. Her look is sophisticated and modern, and although she carries trendy brands, her picks from designers like Celine and Alexander wang are unexpected enough to keep me guessing. Well, except for her Yves Saint Laurent Cabas ChYc, but it's starting to feel like those are being issued to starlets on arrival at LAX. Check out our Miranda Kerr handbag retrospective after the jump.
Of course, we start with the required Yves Saint Laurent Cabas ChYc Tote. $1990 via Neiman Marcus.
Miranda's Celine Cabas Tote is perhaps my favorite of her bags, if only because she styles it so impeccably.
So impeccably, in fact, that I thought we needed to see it twice.
In case you doubted her commitment to Celine, Miranda also has the Celine Zipper Cabas in tonal black haircalf and leather.
Somehow, though, Miranda still manages to make even no makeup and a Louis Vuitton Dog Carrier at the airport look good. $2340 via Louis Vuitton.
Instead of being inside of her Louis Vuitton bag, something Miranda's pup is adjacent to it, as is the case with this Louis Vuitton SC Sophia Coppola Bag. $4650 via Louis Vuitton.
Miranda also has a clear love for Prada, including this Prada Saffiano Lux Tote. $1730 via Neiman Marcus.
Also, this Prada Leather Tote.
And to round out the Prada, this Prada Daino Tote is pretty chic. $1480 via Neiman Marcus.
When Miranda isn't carrying Prada, she's also a big fan of sister line Miu Miu. Check out her Miu Miu Madras Crossbody Bag, for example! $1450 via Bergdorf Goodman.
This casual little Miu Miu Leather Crossbody should serve as further proof of Miranda's love for all things Miuccia.
By now, you should be comfortable enough with Miranda's style to know that she's a girl who loves an occasional Balenciaga bag, like this Balenciaga Tube.
The Alexander Wang Diego Bucket Bag also fits nicely with her glossy version of downtown cool. $825 via Net-a-Porter.
Sometimes, though, Miranda goes ultra-girlish; could this navy romper and Chloe Marcie Crossbody be any cuter on her? $1265 via Saks.
And how cute and French does she look pairing a Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy with a striped top and narrow jeans? $815 via Louis Vuitton.
And then, of course, the crown jewel of Miranda's collection - the grey crocodile Balenciaga Part-Time Bag, which could not be any more perfect than it already is. Yowza.
