Miranda-Kerr-Mansur-Gavriel-Bucket-Bag

When I first set out to see which bag supermodel Miranda Kerr has been carrying lately, I expected to find plenty of photos with her and her beloved Hermès Birkin; it’s been an omnipresent piece in her impressive collection for years.

Emmy-Rossum-Ralph-Lauren-Ricky-Bag

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.

Hilary-Duff-Proenza-Schouler-PS1-Fringe-Pouch

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-Givenchy-Floral-Mini-Pandora-Bag

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.

Eva-Longoria-Hermes-Birkin

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.

Kim-Kardashian-Givenchy-Mini-Pandora-Bag

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.

Chrissy-Teigen-Givenchy-Antigona-Bag

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.

Reese-Witherspoon-The-Row-Leather-Satchel-5

Stars: They’re just like us! Sort of. While the average bag lover might not receive the next bag of her dreams as a gift from a designer, we all act more or less the same way once we get it in our hot little hands.

Taylor Swift Dolce and Gabbana Sara Bag

Generally, stars vary their day-to-day handbag choices quite a lot. Not only does the average celebrity have plenty of money to buy whichever bag she might desire, but most are also regularly sent the Next Big Thing by brands with which they have existing relationships.

Rihanna and her Celine Roll Clutch Bag

Love her or not, Rihanna seems to be on all of our screens at all times. The singer makes waves for everything from her musical career to her personal life to her fashion sense, and we are there to follow along.
