Few models have the career longevity of the perptually gorgeous, seemingly-aging-backward Naomi Campbell. She’s been a fixture in the industry since I was in elementary school, still walks in runway shows with some regularity and is still beloved by fashion people as one of a dying breed of bad-girl models.

Now that Campbell also has a supporting gig on the fabulous Empire, which will return to FOX next month, we decided it was high time we took a dip into the photo archives to investigate her taste in bags. Below, check out our findings.

Alexander McQueen Skull Clutch
$569 via 6pm.com

As you might expect, Naomi goes to a lot of super-swank fashion events, including the Met Ball. This year’s theme was in celebration of Alexander McQueen.

Naomi also carried McQueen to the late designer’s funeral.


Balenciaga City Bag
$1,835 via Balenciaga

Because Naomi has been so famous for so long, she has quite the impressive paparazzi archive. She also had quite the impressive Balenciaga collection when the brand’s bags were super hot.


Balenciaga First Bag
$1,685 via Balenciaga

This was also a bag from that era.


Balenciaga Suede First Bag
Shop Balenciaga via Neiman Marcus

This was a variation on the Classic First that Balenciaga only made for a limited time during the line’s heyday.


Balmain Pierre Leopard Bag
Shop Balmain via farfetch.com

By my estimation, basically every supermodel older than 27 was assigned one of these bags at some point.


Bottega Veneta Cabat Tote
Shop Bottega Veneta via Neiman Marcus

Naomi is often able to avoid paparazzi, but the airport is the great equalizer for us all.


Burberry Banner Tote
$1,495 via Nordstrom

As far as “affordable” bags in Naomi’s collection, this Burberry tote is as close as you’ll get.


Burberry Suede Fringe Bucket Bag

Admittedly, I’m a bit distracted trying to squint at all the diamonds on Naomi’s wrists and hands.


Céline All Soft Bag

This style was only made by Céline for a couple seasons and was under-appreciated the entire time.


Céline Luggage Tote

Naomi tends to stick to muted or neutral colors, but when it comes to brights, I guess we all should go hard or go home.


Chanel Metallic Fringe Shoulder Bag

An underrated use of a luxury bag: shielding one’s visage from the swarming paparazzi.


Chanel Quilted Camellia Metallic Shoulder Bag

When it comes to most brands, Naomi seems to prefer seasonal styles to the classics. After all, everyone already has the classics.


Dolce & Gabbana Rosalia Shoulder Bag
$2,995 via Barneys

This shoulder bag looks kind of awkwardly fat to sit under the arm, but I supposed functional concerns aren’t all that high on your list when you have a gaggle of assistants and security personal around you at all times.


Fendi 3Jours Tote
$2,800 via Net-a-Porter

On the other hand, this bag is a fairly practical airport option.


Fendi Beaded Mini Baguette Bag
$1,700 via Saks

In the vast majority of event photos I found of Naomi, she wasn’t carrying a clutch; a bag this distinctive for a red carpet is a detour for her.


Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag
$1,550 via Nordstrom

Unless the red carpet event in question centers around a brand’s bags, of course.


Fendi Shearling Be Baguette Bag
$2,613 via mytheresa.com

Naomi seems to be particularly fond of Fendi, and I’m guessing that has something to do with the brand’s history as a furrier. Naomi is also fond of fur.


Givenchy Obsedia Bag
$2,990 via Saks

I know this is a silly photo, but it was the only one available where the bag was clearly visible.


Hermès Birkin

And now for the Birkin portion of our show.


Hermès Birkin

This will be a significant portion.


Hermès Birkin

Naomi has a lot of Birkins.


Hermès Crocodile Birkin

She even has crocodile Birkins!


Hermès Crocodile Birkin

At least two of them, to be exact.


Hermès Crocodile Kelly

As well as a crocodile Kelly.


Hermès Travel Birkin

Remember when Naomi had to do community service in NYC and came in fashion costume every day? This was from that week.


Loewe Amazona Bag
Shop Loewe via Neiman Marcus

J.W. Anderson has changed the Amazona in his time at Loewe, but I still miss this version.


Louis Vuitton Bohemian Monogram Cheche Bag

If I were wearing Alaïa and carrying this Louis Vuitton bag, I’m sure I would look similarly carefree.


Louis Vuitton Denim Speedy Bag

A denim Speedy has largely the same effect.


Louis Vuitton Miroir Speedy Bag

Seeing one of the Louis Vuitton Miroir bags always snaps me back to a very specific time. A time in which they were often paired with velour track suits.


Louis Vuitton Mizi Vienna Bag

If we may focus on me for a second: this is my favorite Louis Vuitton bag of all time.


Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte Clutch

Naomi is partial to anonymous little black clutches, but this one has some clear branding.


Louis Vuitton Monogram Stripe Pouch

Her collection of seasonal Louis Vuitton bags from the Marc Jacobs era is probably a sight to behold.


Louis Vuitton Quilted Silk Monogram Clutch

Her Little White Dress collection seems as though it would be similarly impressive.


Louis Vuitton Neo Eden Bag

I’ve always been partial to this line; the stripes tone down the monogram just enough.


Alaia Snakeskin Bag
Shop Alaïa via Net-a-Porter

We’re not 100% certain this bag is Alaïa, but it certainly looks like the designer’s handiwork, as well as being well-represented in Naomi’s closet.


This is another bag that has us a little stumped–let us know in the comments if you recognize it.


Mulberry Neely Leopard Tote
Shop Mulberry via Net-a-Porter

Most famous Brits have at least one Mulberry bag in their closets. Gotta support the home team, after all.


Tom Ford Box Clutch

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” goes doubly for attending fashion shows.

She is the ultimate age defiant celebrity. Year after year she look exactly the same. Not a wrinkle on her and she is in her 40’s!!! Now I want to crawl back into bed and feel sorry for myself

The pic of her at the Fendi party is one of the most recent ones in this gallery, and, I mean, LOOK AT HER! HOW? HOW SO PERFECT FOR SO LONG?

Ahem, sorry for the outburst.

If you ask me what (bag) brand reminds me of Naomi Campbell, I would say Louis Vuitton. Thats the first brand that comes to mind, I don’t know why.

Awesome is so apt

May be just me, but with the exception of a few looks, her overall styling seems a bit tacky/cheap looking considering she’s an industry veteran… You can be dripping in furs and hermes, but money really can’t buy good taste… Just look at the Bravo Housewives, Hilton sisters, Kardashians….

ITA her style would look tacky on a lot of people, but I think it really suits Naomi’s diva/supermodel persona.

I must be looking at different photos because I like her style in a lot of these photos. They don’t look cheap or tacky to me. Oh well, to each his or her own.

In her defense, many of these photos are from the mid-to-late 2000s, which is an era in which most of us probably looked extra tacky by 2015 standards.

Just an FYI im pretty sure the green Birkin is actually alligator and not crocodile. the scales are not as symmetrical for one…

Stunning woman! We don’t have the same taste in bags for sure but I love me some Naomi <3

Love the hot pink luggage tote in slide 11. Wow!
Yes, I also liked the LV Neo Line. What ever happened to that, and why is it not produced/sold anymore?
Her collection is impressive of course, but I would expect nothing less. 🙂

this is my kind of content! i just love naomi and her ‘idgaf’ attitude. love her look in #32…those she would kill me if she read this, she kind of looks like tyra (!!) and kerry washington in that photo. probably the bone structure.

JW Anderson has returned this Loewe version again, but without lock.

I almost fainted when I saw her croc kelly! That poor thing needs a spa treatment!
