If you had as much money as reality star-turned-model Kendall Jenner, what would your handbag closet look like? (If you’ve found your way here, I’m taking it as a given that you’d have a dedicated handbag closet.) Would it be diverse?
Rihanna is the new face of the Christian Dior Diorama Bag, so it’s not surprising that she’s been caught carrying a couple variations of the design over the past six months–it’s part of the job. Lately, though, she’s stuck on a particular light pink version, and it’s not particularly difficult to see why.
Emmy Rossum has one of the most distinctive personal styles in Hollywood, mostly because it’s so not Hollywood. She dresses like millions of American women with more traditional, less trendy personal tastes aspire to dress in their everyday lives: classic, ladylike, slightly conservative.
Of all the celebrities that we’ve profiled over the years, Hilary Duff and her enormous collection have always felt the most relatable to me. Hilary’s personal style is relentlessly casual and often dotted with workout clothes, and she uses her bags to dress things up a little bit, just like lots of non-famous women.
Liv Tyler and I don’t have much in common. For example, I am not the child of rock star royalty, and I do not live in a gorgeous townhome in the West Village. What we do have in common, though, is that we both wear a lot of black, right down to our sensible New York walking shoes, and we use a bag to add a little visual interest to the whole thing.
Looking through Eva Longoria‘s paparazzi archive taught me one thing: she’s remarkably consistent. Eva dresses in mostly neutrals, both light and dark, and she seems to like luxurious materials more than eye-catching embellishments or fashion-forward experimentation. Hers is a relatable, practical personal style, full of plush knits and, of course, lovely bags.
If Kim Kardashian‘s admirers and detractors can agree on anything about her, it’s probably this: Kim has one of the vastest bag collections of any celebrity, and if there’s something she wants but doesn’t currently have, it would not be difficult for her to put her hands on it.
Every brand has its clientele, and among celebrities, Givenchy tends to be super popular among super models. The brand’s streetwear-meets-runway approach to fashion fits in well with the dominant “model off duty” look, and the Givenchy’s bags in particular have found a home in the fans of practically every publicly recognizable model on the planet.
