This handbag roundup features a surprising number of celebs over 50, and of course, their handbag selections are superior to mine and maybe also most people’s in almost every way. We still threw in some Hadids and Dakota Johnson for good measure, but seriously, let a grown (celebrity) woman teach you how to carry a designer handbag. Please.

Bella Hadid
Givenchy Lucrezia Bag
Shop Givenchy via Neiman Marcus

We so rarely get both Hadids in one shot. Paps recently spotted Bella and Gigi leaving Gigi’s NYC apartment together. Bella is carrying an embossed leather Givenchy Lucrezia, and Gigi is carrying her fave Versace Palazzo Empire Mini Bag.

Bo Derek
Balenciaga Crossbody Bag
Shop via Balenciaga

Acting/modeling legend Bo Derek was seen outside of LAX carrying this unassuming buttery brown leather Balenciaga Crossbody Bag.

Dakota Johnson
Louis Vuitton Noé Bag
$1,440 via Louis Vuitton

Dakota Johnson continues to carry this Louis Vuitton Noé Bag during her 50 Shades Darker press tour. She looks extra glam here, posing with her Noé outside of the Bowery Hotel.

Kristin Davis
Anya Hindmarch Ebury Stripe Tote
$999 via Saks Off 5th

Kristin Davis recently carried this rainbow-colored Anya Hindmarch Ebury Stripe Tote to LAX. Once inside, she happily discussed her views on the day’s travel topics with members of the press.

Rachel Ray
Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Tote
Shop via Neiman Marcus

Rachel Ray carried this oversized woven Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Tote to her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Frankly, it always gives me an “uh-oh” feeling when nighttime TV personalities interview daytime TV personalities. It just seems so unnatural.

Reese Witherspoon
The Row Day Luxe Tote
Shop The Row via Neiman Marcus

Reese Witherspoon flashed her ultra-luxe The Row Day Luxe Tote at the cameras while out and about in LA. And I may be wrong, but I think she is wearing that cardigan as a top. This may be a thing normals can do now too, but you guys try it first and report back.

Salma Hayek
Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag
$2,300 via Gucci

Salma Hayek was not about to slow down for the cameras during this particular jaunt to LAX. She’s carrying a beautiful quilted Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag.

Tina Knowles Lawson
Chanel Boy Bag
Shop Chanel Boy Bags via Vestiaire Collective

Finally, here’s the Queen Mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, heading into Craig’s in LA for dinner while carrying a black Chanel Boy Bag. As you would expect, it pairs perfectly with her black jumpsuit.

Yes indeed Reese is doing a cardi as top and if I’m not mistaken that cardi is about 2 years old from H&M. I have the same one.

There are many women around 50, celebrity or not, that have impeccable style and an amazing bag game! LOL!! Love the Gucci Marmont!

I love how “vintage” looking Tina’s Boy bag is. I’m usually left a bit cold by pristine Chanel. Beautiful, but cold.

This is kind of a nit pick, but it seems condescending to use the phrase “puts us all to shame” when comparing the collections and massive budgets of celebrities to the every day PurseBlog reader. There are people here of all different means. We may look at a celebrity’s handbag collection with interest, but there is no reason for us to be comparing ourselves to them.

Agree wholeheartedly!

Also, how many of the bags celebs carry are “gifted” by the various brands?

Wearing a cardigan as a top is not new. I’ve been doing that forever.
I love how used Dakota’s bag looks. I would love to have the Anya Hindmarch’s tote. Gorgeous.

Generally not a fan of LV logo bags (they’re just so ubiquitous), but in my eyes, Dakota Johnson can do no wrong.
