We love our glossies as much as any fashion people, and one of the industry’s major magazines is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year. InStyle Magazine launched in 1994 with Barbra Streisand on its cover, and since its inception, the magazine has grown its global reach to over 21 million subscribers. With Ariel Foxman at the helm, InStyle has made waves in the fashion sphere with an approachable attitude along with an ever-expanding online presence.

This year’s September issue is the biggest in the brand’s two-decade history. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary, Julia Roberts graces this milestone cover, which will hit newsstands this Friday, August 15th.

Recently, we spent the day with 20 InStyle editors (to celebrate the 20th Anniversary, natch!) to see which bags they carry to work. From Louis Vuitton, to Balenciaga, to lots of Saint Laurent, take a look at the many bags of InStyle Magazine’s editors.

      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………………………,.,..

    The photos are nice but the bags are like show pieces, it is too hard to decipher true personality. What no Chloe Alice?
