    I love this!! Can you do more celebrity handbag worth posts please?!

    • Sure! Let us know who you’d like to see.

      • TexasST

        Steve Harvey’s current wife seems to have quite a collection of luxury bags, that would be fun to add up!

      • Oooo yeah she’s a good one.

      • HL

        Yes! Her collection has to be well over $1,000,000. I’d love to see it!

      • Patries Ferguson

        I would love to see Gweneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham or Olson twins!

      • Daria

        Marjorie is so tacky and hideous. Do her!!

      • laura

        How about her Chanel collection? She has plenty of those too.

      • Imgoingbroke

        I, for one, would love to see her amazing Chanel collection worth. That would be fun!

    • Vlad Dusil

      What we need to do is to raid some of these collector’s closets and get the full picture! =)

  • Jennifer

    This is absurd. How many Birkens does one woman need?

    • Aoedele

      In the grand scheme of things, humans don’t need luxury goods to thrive, but if you can afford it, why not?

      • Holly Stanton

        She could donate some of that purse money to local schools or homeless shelters. I think you should spend money but anything more than 15k is just an insult to starving people in my opinion.

      • Rachel

        I’m pretty sure she already engages in some pretty heavy philanthropy.

      • jpmonte

        Yes, needs the tax deductions.

  • Aoedele

    My jaw is literally on the floor, wow! Thanks Amanda, you are awesome. I’m cheap, my fave is the pink $8,000 Sellier Kelly.

    • Mom2 12paws

      Maybe longer sleeves will make that bag look better.

  • HL

    As Far as I’ve most of Her bags are purchased from the boutiques not resellers. So all of the Croc 35 birkins cost no more that 50k usd each. The Himalayan kelly is about 50k euros I think. I know she purchased her two 25 birkins from priveporter but given her close friendship with the celebrity director at Hermes Michael Coste I’d say these prices are much higher than than what Kris actually paid. There are variations in price with the finish and type of crocodile such as Porosus and Niloticus. Either way, a very interesting article.

    • laura

      True but all her bags are still worth a lot… in some cases, more than many people’s houses… and that’s just her Hermes. OMG.

    • We weren’t going for what she paid, just what they’d be worth if sold!

    • Scottsdale Kim

      Congrats Mr. Coste for turning the Birkin into what some now refer to as “The Kardashian Bag”.

  • Averil

    I would take the So Black, Graphite and Electric Blue 35cms all day errday! Croc creeps me out and none of her Kellys are cute…

    I wonder how many belong to her or if the whole Klan shares their Hermes bags.

    Very interesting article!

  • Kate

    I don’t like the Birkin (it looks like luggage to me), but I love the lady-like look of the Kelly. Sadly, I can’t help but feel like my enthusiasm for Hermes is dampened by its constant association with the Kardashians. It’s not a matter of moral outrage because I disapprove of their lifestyle or whatever; I just think they’re tacky and have really bad style.

    • Sara

      True that!

    • emily

      People disliking a bag over a specific person owing one is so childish, there are a million worser people who own the Hermes bag. They probably own bags from most well known brands that’s life, rich people own things like this. Build a bridge, it’s not like they are getting a profit from every Hermes bag sold.

  • cbl

    OH. EM. GEE.

  • Y Ajayi

    Its the same bag in different colours and animal skins. To me it’s boring. To her it’s amazing so good for her.

    • Sparky

      I love my Prada Galleria and wish they did more variations of the style. Its really practical and beautiful. I can see how someone would buy several versions of the same bag just because the style suits them so well. In this case however, I’m guessing the duplication is solely based the prestige of owning so many Birkins. I find that vulgar. (don’t get me started on the cosmetic surgery…)

      • Aurore de La Gorce

        Yes, because the style of the Birkin can be found in numerous other brands, and with the same quality, especially now that Hermès’ leathers are thinner and don’t get me started on the finitions. This just screams look at my wealth.

  • psny15

    they should be deported and the bags should be auctioned to feed the poor

    • Bag Lover

      And what are you doing to feed the poor? The fact that you’re a purseblog member tells me you have disposable income. Please do share with us examples of recent charities you’ve donated to or volunteered for.

  • Stephanie

    Thats sickening

  • Millerette

    I can’t believe I’m about to defend any Jenner/Kardashian but here I go.

    It’s none of anyone’s business how much money she spends on bags or gives to charity. Yes the math is kind of fun/shocking to see in print and I am as guilty as any girl who watched those old MTV shows like “The Fabulous life of Britney Spears” where they talk about insane things like sending a private jet to pick up her favorite fried chicken for a video shoot. However, you have no place to insinuate that she should be exiled/deported/killed etc because she can afford/was given luxury bags. The items are just that, luxury. Truly lovely luxuries.
    Hopefully their family contributes to charities and help the less fortunate, but if they don’t, that is their prerogative and continues to be none of your concern. Worry about yourselves and the conditions of your own hearts and wallets, enjoy looking at the pretty bags and fabulous clothes and move about your day.

    • HelloHappylife

      I agree! I am no fan of the kardashians either but at the end of the day It’s THEIR money what they choose to do with it is their choice,I hate when people bash people with money to donate,while I think donating is the right thing/nice thing to do, there is no law saying wealthy have to donate. Again I think it’s the nice thing to do as humans but I also understand that it’s not required.

      • Sparky

        Also, why do people assume donating and shopping are mutually exclusive? Because we SEE the luxury item and CAN’T see the donation people assume it was one or the other. That’s silly. I have nice bags and I make a lot of donations.

      • Mom2 12paws

        Donations do not necessarily mean someone has a tenth degree of humanity, it’s a tax write off.

    • emily

      I read that Kim gives 10 percent of her annual earnings to charity, and considering what she makes annually that’s a lot. I’d love to know what the people who tell the rich to contribute to charity are doing themselves for charity, it’s really nobodies business what anyone choses to spend their money on or what they’re donating to charity. She may be a Kardashian/Jenner but she turned her kids into multi millionaires she clearly works hard, she should be allowed to spend her money on what she pleases. Not to mention Hermes goes up in value, if she choses to ever sell her collection she’ll be the one laughing.

  • Smithy

    Half a mill on bags….no what America hates this family.

  • Rashida

    Wow…

  • Yoshi1296

    Sweet Jesus she has an AMAZING Hermes collection…here I am trying to save up for my first Hermes bag and it isn’t even a Birkin looool!!!!

  • Carrie K

    Your pricing is all wrong!

    • Pricing was an estimate of what the bags would be if sold now – way too hard to know what she paid for any of these, if she got them retail or second hand etc.

  • Lisa

    It’s horrifying and fascinating at the same time, like a traffic accident. “Purseonally”, I think it’s boring to buy so many of the same bag, even in different colors and leathers, and if I had a half mil to shop with I still wouldn’t make that choice. BUT, as so many have written here, it’s HER choice to make.

  • Slim

    The whole entire family has Birkins. Would love to know the figure if all the ladies and Kris added up the cost. I think it would hover around $2 million.

  • Sandy

    I do not think anyone needs to jump to Kris’s defense here. She knows how much she has spent on the bags as do the rest of us that are bag lovers. I think this is just a fun post and above all, entertaining. Our entertainment driven society that provides the money to purchase the bags in the first place.

  • Giselle

    She always smiles, seems very happy

  • Sara

    Yawn….Feeling uninspired…..All the money in the world and still can’t think out of the square.

  • Sparky

    ouch!

    • Aurore de La Gorce

      I would never buy new fur coats, but vintage fur makes sense to me. You know, our grandmothers’ coats or hats ?
      However, we do not need to breed foxes, visons since we do not even eat them. There is no logic in it. On the other hand, why not use the fur of sheep, cows and rabbits killed for food. Eventhough it breaks my heart to think of them (but I would be an hypocrit since I wear leather bags).

      • Sparky

        I get what you’re saying. I eat meat and wear leather and sometimes feel I’m being hypocritical regarding fur – but like you said, furs are not a by-product of an industry. Leather is.

      • Yuri J Kim

        Unfortunately, leather cows and dairy/meat cows are different. There is a separate industry for leather, since it’s too costly to butcher the dairy and meat cows neatly enough to preserve their hides. It’s why I’ve been trying to avoid purchasing leather and buy pre-owned bags instead, not to mention it’s cheaper :)

      • Aurore de La Gorce

        Yuri, yes sadly, most of the time it is not the same cows but you can find brands that use the skin of cows that are bred to be eaten and have their skin used. I remember I read an article about that. I think Balenciaga does this. Mango Leathers (for clothes) too.
        But you are right, in the end, it’s all about money, not killing to use every part of the animal, which would me much more sensible.
        I try to purchase vintage too, I tell myself this way the animal has not been killed for nothing (or almost nothing). It’s easy for bags, but for shoes, it’s much more complicated.

      • Justice J. Srisuk

        There’s actually a company called Parabellum that sources and tans leather from American bison that are farmed on a ranch for meat. Before, the hides would’ve been thrown away but this company began creating beautifully-crafted bags and wallets from what would’ve been trash.
        They even donate 5% of the sale of each item they produce to a non-profit that works to preserve the Midwestern prairie ecosystem. Check them out here: http://parabellum.la/shop/
        (I don’t work for them or anything! I just like their brands and find what they’re doing to be inspiring!)

      • Aurore de La Gorce

        Sparky, exactly. I’m glad we agreed on that ! Have a nice day !

  • kateholli

    Obscene. Ridiculous. The bags are wonderful, though. But even she can only wear one at a a time.

  • Imagine Koi

    I think having a bag collection is great but there are so many styles out there and great leather artisans to stay loyal to one brand seems like she is being sponsored by Hermes to wear them.

    • Daria

      Um. No.

    • emily

      Or she likes Hermes like most rich people in California.

  • Vanessa Kelly

    Its her money, she can spend it however she wants. Those bags are investment pieces. If she goes bankcrupt, and she sells those bags she can still buy a house and a car!

  • GreenApple18r

    Lol these women couldn’t help but let out their jealousy like babies can’t take control of their bladder.

  • vera katterfeld

    Love the collection! But does anyone know what sunglasses she is wearing in picture 2 and 9? I love them!

  • Gail Demarest

    Well sorry not a birkin lady but I’m into Hermes Evelyn gm bags Epsom leather,if that means anything,a hippie Hermes girl.

  • Gail Demarest

    Now if someone wants to donate an older one to me,lol,I’ll accept it graciously

  • Papalima

    Overly conspicuous consumption.

  • Imgoingbroke

    “She blinded me with Mathematics” !!

  • JT88MT

    She could be covered from head to toe in Hermes, but you still can’t perfume a pig……….

  • Kym

    How old do her hands look in the last picture ????

  • lavinia

    I like Kris, I love her style, she is rich she buys what she want… why not? what’s the problem? I do not feel envy for that. I still love her :)

  • Mom2 12paws

    Personally, nyet.

  • Tina

    I would buy one or two max if I were rich. A black one and a tan one. I am way more of a Chanel fan so I would probably have those bags in a myriad of colors.

  • emily

    Well Hermes and Chanel are better investments than the US property market lol.
