Celebs Love Louis Vuitton Luggage

[Editor's Note: Over the next two weeks, while we celebrate Christmas and New Year's with our families and friends, we'll be adding some of our most popular posts of the past few years to our daily coverage, updated with new photos and information. Because today is one of the busiest travel days of the year, we'll start off with this new-and-improved look at how celebrities travel with their Louis Vuitton Luggage.]

In life, there are a few great equalizers: the DMV, the checkout line at Duane Reade, the Ticketmaster website the morning that Lady Gaga Beyonce tickets go on sale. For celebrities, the great equalizer seems to be the airport; no matter how rich and famous they are, unless they fly on only private plans and out of private airports (and almost none of them do), legendary movie stars and reality famewhores alike need to go through security, submit their bags to X-ray machines and submit themselves to the paparazzi who endlessly trawl LAX and JFK, waiting for them to make the walk from their gate to their waiting car service. No one escapes certain rules of modern air travel.

Because of that, we have a great deal of photographic evidence explaining exactly how stars travel, and it looks as though there’s a second great equalizer at the airport besides the TSA: Louis Vuitton luggage. Stars overwhelmingly favor monogram canvas Keepalls and Pegase rolling suitcases as their go-to designer carry-ons, but other pieces and materials get a little bit of love as well. More than anything, though, it’s impressive how much Vuitton’s travel gear seems to cross all kinds of lines – gender, race, age, career type, fame level – to saturate the celebrity market. Check out the LV pieces preferred by everyone from Jane Fonda to Kim Kardashian after the jump.

    I so LOVEEEEEEEEEEE Monica’s bag & look. The worn look looks soooo much better than the new. Def. my fav.

      I really prefer the well-worn LV look too! To me, it looks a lot more luxurious than the brand new bags.

    Mm, Johnny Weir also looks to be carrying a black Balenciaga City. Love men and their manbags!

      It’s definitely Balenciaga, although I couldn’t tell exactly which model from that angle. He has an amazing Balenciaga collection.

    The Minka one is really nice. I’d be fascinated to know how many of these celebs got their LV free, or at some major discount.

    The older piece, 2nd from the bottom, looks like a vintage Pullman. The bottom one may also be a Pullman that has had all of the vachetta re-done.

    Minka Kelly’s duffel is definitely from last winter’s collection.. i do not know the name of it though

  • Miles

    Minka Kelly’s duffel bag is the Keepall 45 Revelation (limited edition). It’s the same keepall with Bono and his wife on an AD :)

  • Bramble

    Jessica Simpson should have been on this list, she has a ridiculous collection of LV !

    Is it weird that Melanie is traveling in an almost full look from Chanel?
