In designing the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour, it seems like the brand was betting on the fact that there would be an enthusiastic market for a modernized, anonymized take on the classic Hermès Birkin. Although there was much gnashing of teeth in handbag circles when the design debuted, the bet has paid off in spades for the brand, and famous, fashionable women have been some of the bag’s biggest proponents.

In pulling together our coverage of celebrities and what they’re wearing twice a week, we noticed just how saturated the glitterati have become with Sacs de Jour both great and small. Below, check out the bag’s most famous fans and get a little outfit inspo of your own.

To learn more about the Sac de Jour, check out our ultimate guide to its pricing, sizes, leathers and colors.

So big, in fact, that she has two. (I can’t tell if this one is a Small or Large–sometimes it’s difficult because of the simplicity of the design.)

Every so often a bag comes along that everyone seems to love but it just does not resonate with me. That is the Sac de Jour. I just don’t get it but then again, I had the same reaction to the Celine Luggage Tote.

I adore this bag. I always have. It’s simple and classic and has an inderstated beauty and elegance. I loved all of them except the minis.
Cannot stand that trend.

This bag has has really grown on me, didn’t care for it much at first. I really prefer the smaller sizes, the large are just too big. And the smaller versions seems to hold their shape better.

I don’t get it either and I would venture to say that the majority of these were gifted to these celebrities/bloggers…

Some of them were almost definitely gifted, but I wouldn’t guess that it’s the majority. Saint Laurent in particular has an incredibly specific celebrity aesthetic that Hedi Slimane has crafted as part of the brand’s relaunch, and many of the ladies above fall outside of that in one way or another. Those celebs are probably stuck paying retail like the rest of us.

Do you mean like, it was probably gifted to Kate Beckinsale and Angelina Jolie and such while the PLL and Real Housewives cast probably had to buy them?

I don’t know anything for sure, of course, but in general, brands have their favorite celebrities to work with, and vice versa. Saint Laurent has dressed Angelina for a zillion high-profile appearances, for example.

Having someone high-profile carry a bag is only advantageous enough to warrant a freebie if the celeb’s aesthetic fits in with what the brand is trying to achieve overall. Even then, though, celebs shop just like the rest of us do, and a couple grand for a bag isn’t a big deal to most of them. You see photos of celebs coming out of stores with bags of purchases all the time.

This is not a statement bag, perhaps why they carry it. Something clean looking, variety of sizes and colors and you can get them everywhere, boutiques, dept stores, online. If someone gave you one you wouldn’t use it? Give me one I’ll take it and rock the hell out of my new free bag.

I really love the bag. I passed on it recently and purchased an Antigona. I am just unsure of the longevity…so many YSL bags have been hot for a while and then disappeared.
