There's a reason that models get paid to wear stuff: they look really, really good doing it, even when they're just headed to the dermatologist or to lunch at with some friends. Top-tier models also have incredible access to the best handbags on the planet, and they tend to carry them at will.
In 2014, we took a look at the handbag collections of five of our favorite supers, and now we're back again with four more for your viewing pleasure.
Balenciaga City Bag
$1,985 via Balenciaga
Elsa, who many speculate will be named Victoria's Secret's newest Angel, is a relatively new target of regular paparazzi attention. In nearly every photo we found of her, though, she was carrying a different bag. She is clearly one of us.
Balenciaga Giant City Bag
$1,985 via Balenciaga
I get such a feeling of nostalgia from these older Bal bags with giant hardware.
Céline Classic Box Bag
Sometimes models in paparazzi photos make it abundantly clear why they're models in the first place.
Chanel Boy Bag
It's a little chilly in NYC today, and this big sweater/Chanel bag combo looks just about perfect.
Chanel Strass Classic Flap Bag
One of the ways you can really tell Elsa is one of us is that she brings full-on statement bags to events where models usually go bagless.
Chanel Wallet on Chain Bag
Chloé Drew Bag
$1,650 via Barneys
Elsa does not let a red carpet dissuade her from bringing her favorite bag.
Coach Classic Duffel Bag
$279 via Coach
Elsa mainly goes for very expensive bags, but you can't begrudge her a more affordably priced classic here and there.
Fendi Twins Tote
Shop Fendi via Nordstrom
Fun fact: After high school, Elsa playing in the professional basketball in her native Sweden before becoming a full-time model.
Givenchy Nightingale Bag
$2,640 via mytheresa.com
Elsa's collection includes a little bit of everything; I'd love to see insider her bag closet.
Proenza Schouler PS11 Bag
$1,838 via mytheresa.com
In addition to bags, Elsa also has a very strong eye for outerwear.
We posted about this bag once before and no one was able to identify it, but here's hoping one of you has seen it in the interim.
The Row Backpack
$3,900 via farfetch.com
It's almost reassuring to know that even Swedish supermodels sometimes get a pen mark on their white bags.
The Row Market Tote
$2,650 via Barneys
I can't imagine these wood handles are very comfortable.
Chanel Boy Brick Minaudiere
Up next: social media darling Gigi Hadid.
Charlotte Olympia Round Up Maggie Clutch
$800 via farfetch.com
Gigi looks pretty much perfect all the time, and she can probably thank her mom's good genetics for that. (Yolanda Foster was also a model, and is currently a Real Housewife, in case reality TV is not your thing.)
Elizabeth & James Cynnie Sling Bag
$545 via Shopbop
What's the use in being young, beautiful and famous if you're not going to go to Coachella and make out with your pop star boyfriend?
We're unsure of this bag's origin, but it does look good with a crop top.
Marc Jacobs Incognito Bag
$1,610 via Net-a-Porter (down from $2,300)
Marc Jacobs is fast at work reigniting interest in his handbags, and he's been smart to place them in the hands of It Girls like Gigi and her buddy Kendall Jenner.
Max Mara Whitney Bag
$1,150 via Saks
In general, it seems like brands at many price levels are eager to align themselves with Ms. Hadid, including Max Mara, who created this bag to commemorate the opening of the new Whitney Museum.
Prada Galleria Tote
$1,850 via Bergdorf Goodman
Even before she was super famous, though, Gigi generally had a fancy bag on her arm.
Rebecca Minkoff Paris Bag
$295 via Rebecca Minkoff
Whatever happened to the Paris bags? I remember being excited for this line to come out, but I haven't seen nearly as many versions of it as I've seen of Minkoff's other bags.
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Croc-Embossed Tote
$2,990 via mytheresa.com
As we recently documented, owning one of these bags is practically required for the young and famous.
Zadig & Voltaire Candide Tote
$985 via Zadig & Voltaire
I wasn't overly familiar with Zadig's bags, but I checked them out after seeing Gigi with this one, and they're pretty good. (This is exactly what the brand was hoping would happen--good work, guys.)
Givenchy Floral Pouch
$420 via mytheresa.com
Joan Smalls is my personal favorite supermodel, and she has been every since the first time I saw her. I am powerless against her bone structure.
Alexander Wang Dumbo Backpack
$1,050 via Saks
It's hard to pull of the just-scrubbed-clean-after-fashion-show-makeup look, but Joan meets the challenge head-on (and with a cute backpack.)
Chanel Multiplication Minaudiere
Joan is one of the people who regularly gets an invite to lavish Chanel parties. It must be crazy to be one of Karl's girls.
Chanel Strass Pouch
As best as I can tell, this is a crystal-covered pouch that's strapped to her hand. I've never seen one before, so it may have been a sample or special piece that Karl bequeathed on her for this particular party.
Givenchy Antigona Envelope Clutch
$995 via Barneys
Over all, Joan probably carries more Givenchy than anything, and she's been starring in fashion shows and print ads for the brand for years.
Givenchy Chain Pouch
Shop Givenchy via Saks
You accumulate a lot of bags during that kind of time with a brand.
Givenchy Pandora Box Bag
$1,790 via mytheresa.com
Joan is such a boss that she carried a Givenchy bag to a Chanel show.
Stella McCartney Falabella Clutch
$795 via farfetch.com
I have a dress like this, but somehow I don't look quite the same in it.
Céline Leopard Luggage Tote
Lily has been modeling for over a decade, and she scored her first international Vogue cover at the tender age of 17.
Céline Nano Python Luggage Tote
Like Gigi, Lily has some strong genes in her corner; her mom was a Playboy Playmate of the Month, and both of her sisters have had significant modeling success.
Céline Phantom Luggage Tote
Lily and her Céline bags is almost enough to make me want one all over again.
Céline Trio Bag
Lately, she's traded in the big totes for something sleeker.
Chloé Paraty Bag
$1,990 via Saks
The Paraty is one of those bags that only makes sense to me when a model wears it. (See also: everything Isabel Marant makes.)
Edie Parker Lara Ice Clutch
$1,095 via Net-a-Porter
The Brits really do have an excellent model track record.
Givenchy Antigona Bag
$2,225 via Net-a-Porter
Every model has to have a little Givenchy.
Givenchy Pandora Bag
$1,890 via Net-a-Porter
Okay, maybe more than a little.
Judith Leiber Koi Fish Minaudiere
$5,995 via Neiman Marcus
Things get weird at the Met Ball sometimes.
Meli Melo Thela Bag
$865 via Shopbop
This bag's other famous fan is none other than Olivia Palermo.
Proenza Schouler Suede PS1 Pouch
$1,325 via FWRD
That's Lily's husband, Kings of Leon front man Caleb Followill.
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote
$2,750 via Nordstrom
On occasion, Lily's duties with Victoria's Secret involve working out publicly.
The Row Carryall Tote
Shop The Row via Neiman Marcus
Look closely and there's a little mark, which proves that Lily, like Elsa, is indeed human.
