Just Can’t Get Enough

Gigi-Hadid-Versace-Mini-Palazzo-Empire-Bag

When you think of the ideal Versace woman, you probably imagine someone Amazonianly tall, endlessly leggy, extremely blonde and curvy, but in a fashion way. A supermodel, but more in the vein of Victoria’s Secret than the alien babydolls preferred by high fashion brands over the past 15 years.

Miranda-Kerr-Black-Handbags

Celebrities: they’re just like us! Well, they’re just like us in that they have handbag preferences, anyway. Because we keep close watch on the day-to-day handbag choices of Hollywood’s biggest bag lovers, we tend to pick up on those preferences over time, and today, we’re here to talk about what it is that supermodel Miranda Kerr likes in a handbag.

Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley-Celine-Belt-Bag

A very funny friend of mine once referred to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as a “self-esteem serial killer,” and although I’ve never been the type to proactively hold myself to the beauty standards of those who are beautiful for a living, I have to admit that she kind of had a point.

Gwyneth-Paltrow-Celine-Luggage-Tote

Gwyneth Paltrow is, if nothing else, a remarkably consistent human being. That’s the kind of personality required to follow her strict diet and workout regiments for years on end, and it also means her fresh-faced, flaxen-haired personal style has been the same since time immemorial.

Reese-Witherspoon-Saint-Laurent-Janis-Pumps-Yellow

Reese Witherspoon is arguably our single most prolific celebrity collector of handbags and shoes. If you’ve ever loved a brightly colored pump or satchel, Reese has that. In fact, she probably has it in triplicate. But her ardor for bright colors has been slipping into overdrive recently, and we’ve seen Reese wearing gorgeous pumps in every color of the rainbow (and a few that definitely fall outside of the ROYGBIV schema).

Amanda-Seyfried-Givenchy-Bags

In 2013, Amanda Seyfried signed on as one of Givenchy‘s celebrity faces, and she’s since appeared in ad campaigns for the brand’s perfume, apparel and handbags over the last two years. (The Many Bags of Amanda Seyfried from 2013 will give you some idea of what her collection looked like pre-Givenchy contract.) It’s obviously been a very satisfactory business relationship for both parties, as Amanda seldom carries anything but Givenchy, and, in turn, Givenchy continues to keep her well-employed with new fragrance campaigns.

Ashley-Benson-Givenchy-Antigona-Bag

Ashley Benson has long had handbag-carrying patterns that are completely atypical for a celeb of her stature: she buys (receives? who knows) a bag, loves it and carries it almost exclusively for several months, at which point, it’s time to repeat the process with a new bag.

Naomi-Watts-Givenchy-Gucci-Bags

Everyone has different patterns when it comes to shopping for and carrying bags; some people are brand-loyal, while others tend toward trendy pieces or only let themselves splurge on classics. Actress Naomi Watts, on the other hand, fits into a very specific type of bag pattern: she buys and wears what is essentially the same bag over and over again.

Demi-Lovato-Celine-Luggage-Tote

Some celebs seem to have a new handbag on their arms every time we turn around, but most of them are just like you and me: they play favorites, get into grooves with particular bags and sometimes just don’t feel like switching their stuff out for another option.

Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley-Givenchy-Nightingale

We were super excited when we found out that Givenchy would be streamlining the design for its much-beloved Nightingale Bag in time for fall, and it seems as though Givenchy’s many celebrity friends were right there with us.

Mindy-Kaling-Chanel-Classic-Flap-Bag

If you’ve ever watched The Mindy Project, you know that main character Mindy Lahiri loves her a good Chanel bag and frequently carries them on the show, and as it turns out, the same is true of her creator, actress and writer Mindy Kaling.

Reese-Witherspoon-Pink-Bags

Usually when we say a celebrity “just can’t get enough,” we’re talking about someone who really, really loves a particular bag in her collection. When I saw down to go through some photos of Reese Witherspoon, though, I noticed a different pattern–she has a particular affection for a certain shade of pink.
