Most handbags, even popular ones, match to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of style. Some skew older or younger, or to creative type or those with high-powered office jobs. Bags are functional pieces of design, after all, and different design is appropriate for different people with different kinds of lives. Somehow, though, an occasional bag transcends stylistic borders and reaches critical mass, and that’s exactly what the Chanel Boy Bag has done in the handful of years since its debut.

Because of the public nature of celebrity life, their bag choices are a perfect way to analyze a particular design’s success. We’ve caught the Boy Bag in the arms of supermodels, actresses, reality TV stars, a duo of legendary rappers and plenty of French It Girls. Young or old, tall or short, casual or dressy, at the grocery store or stumbling out of a buzzy night club–the bag looks great on everyone and translates well to a dizzying number of situations.

Below, check out literally dozens of celebrities carrying their very own Boy Bags–there’s plenty of style inspo to be had.

I don’t like these when they loose their structure so although they look nice enough I will never get one.

My husband recently offered to buy a Chanel bag as a gift for me (I was pregnant, huge and depressed, so he was desperately trying to cheer me up), and even though I’ve been saying for months that the next addition to my collection would be a classic flap, I went for another Boy. I just love this bag. The classic flap will be going home with me next year for sure! I think …

I definitely prefer my Boy over my classic jumbo flap. Strap is more comfy and the single flap is easier to open and close.

I currently make about 6000-8000 dollars /a month from working online at home. Those who are looking to do basic computer-based work for 2h-5h a day from your home and make valuable payment for doing it… This is a work for you… http://ur1.ca/p7vw7

A great selection. If I could have only one, I’d pick from photos 2, 24 or 30.

I love the Boy Bag but can never seem to pull the trigger. Maybe one day. But until then I’m sticking with the classic flaps.
