It's been awhile since we took a deep dive into the bag collections of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Since then, quite a lot has changed. Lisa Vanderpump left the franchise in a huff and is no longer friends with longtime BFF Kyle Richards. A handful of new ladies have joined the franchise over the last few years, freshening up both the on-screen drama and the fashion. One thing that hasn't changed much over the years is this: the ladies of the 90210 area code sure do love their designer bags. Paparazzi caught up with these housewives around BH, NYC and beyond over the years and today we're taking a look at some seriously impressive bags. As you'll see, the veteran housewives seem to get the most attention while some of the newbies tend to fly under-the-radar a bit. Which housewife would you like to trade closets with?
Veteran Beverly Hills housewife and OG, Kyle Richards arguably has the best collection of the group. Here, she pairs a rare vintage Chanel bag with a furry jacket and clear-rimmed glasses. A very nerd-chic look if you ask me.
Hermès Ostrich Birkin (Shop via Fashionphile)
The first of many, this Birkin in jade green Ostrich is a favorite of Kyle's. Paps snapped her carrying this multiple times over the last few years. One thing Kyle seems to love as much as her designer bags? Leather pants.
Hermès Kelly Longue Pochette (Shop via Fashionphile)
Kyle was spotted celebrating her sister Kathy Hilton's birthday wearing a tailored blue velvet suit. Her Kelly Longue Pochette stole the show though.
Chanel Chain Me Mini Flap Bag (Shop Chanel via Fashionphile)
In 2018 Kyle attended Coachella music festival, and while all eyes are on her Chanel Chain Me Mini it seems her kimono has all eyes on us...
Hermès Kelly Bag (Shop via Fashionphile)
Kyle's love for Hermès doesn't stop with Birkins, she diversifies her collection with a few Kelly bags too. While her sleek black Kelly is a timeless classic, this emerald green dress looks like it came straight from an 80s prom.
Hermès Kelly Bag (Shop via Fashionphile)
Here, we have another photo of Kyle donning leather pants with a pretty in pink Kelly. Unfortunately, Kyle's home was burglarized in late 2017, and she told Fashionista that this bag was stolen. Fear not friends, Kris Jenner was able to find her another one!
Hermès Birkin (Shop via Fashionphile)
Another day, another Birkin! Kyle paired this bright red stunner with a relaxed silk suit for a dinner with her fellow RHOBH castmates.
Gucci Guccissima Padlock Shoulder Bag (Shop Gucci via Nordstrom)
Apparently Kyle loves a good red bag, and we love this Gucci Padlock shoulder bag too. It's nice to see Kyle carrying something a bit more attainable than her impressive Hermès bags. Celebs, they're just like us!
Bottega Veneta The Pouch 20 ($1,841)
Lisa Rinna joined the cast back in 2014 for season five. Since then, paparazzi have been especially keen on following her around Beverly Hills. Her collection is a bit more diversified in terms of brands than Kyle's, and like the rest of us she has hopped right aboard the #NewBottega train. She carried a small version of BV's beloved The Pouch to NYFW, all the while sporting an impressively high ponytail.
Prada Nylon Belt Bag ($850)
Rinna, as her castmates lovingly (and not-so-lovingly at times) call her, was spotted strolling through the airport wearing a functional Prada nylon belt bag. Sunglasses were simply not enough to keep her incognito—her signature hairdo is unmistakeable.
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour ($2,650)
You can't go wrong with a classic jeans and tee look, and here Lisa accented her basic look with a simple Sac de Jour bag. Her phone case? Gucci of course!
In 2018, Lisa also attended Coachella alongside Kyle, pairing her printed Gucci pants with a Gucci Super Mini Marmont bag. She cleverly reworked this mini crossbody to function as a belt bag here. You go girl!
Chanel Multi Pouch (Shop Chanel via Fashionphile)
Why carry one Chanel pouch when you can carry three?
Hermès Crocodile Birkin (Shop via Fashionphile)
Lisa has mastered the art of accessorizing her leggings with a designer bag. All that's missing here is her yoga mat.
Louis Vuitton Custom Alma Bag (Shop Louis Vuitton via Fashionphile)
Ah here it is, the aforementioned exercise accessory. Lisa is often spotted going to and from yoga with a designer bag in hand. On this particular morning she carried a custom Louis Vuitton Alma bag, which playfully reads 'Mrs. Hamlin'.
Bottega Veneta The Pouch ($2,700)
On another day of NYFW, Lisa carried BV's beloved The Pouch in classic black alongside her daughter Amelia.
Dior Book Tote ($2,750)
Lisa was spotted flitting about NYC with her castmates carrying a custom 'Rinna' Dior Book Tote.
Gucci Arli Shoulder Bag ($1,980)
With a Gucci Arli bag tucked under her arm, Lisa ducked into Good Morning America.
Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 ($1,140)
Another morning yoga session, another Louis Vuitton bag. Here, Lisa paired a classic Speedy bag with her yoga mat and furry slides.
Balenciaga Blackout Nano City Bag (Shop Balenciaga via Nordstrom)
When she's not dressed down, Lisa loves to dress up with logos. Gucci sneakers made the perfect pair with her Balenciaga mini City.
Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Clutch ($1,600)
Black leggings and Louis Vuitton seems to be a thing, huh?
Louis Vuitton Bleeker Box ($3,450)
Erika Girardi, aka Erika Jayne, joined RHOBH a season after Lisa Rinna, and fans will know that she brings the fashion heat. She's often late to cast events getting her glam and outfits just right. The funny thing about Erika is that she's often photographed sans a handbag. Here she does carry a bag, albeit a rather tiny one. Unlike her tour, Louis Vuitton's Bleeker Box isn't a pretty mess, but it is pretty in pink.
Louis Vuitton Palm Springs PM ($2,210)
Erika's fashion choices range from over the top to comfy, yet chic. Here, Erika dressed down for a dinner with Lisa Rinna and Co, accessorizing her LV Backpack with furry pom-pom key chain.
Edie Parker Double Shot Bag ($1,556)
For Andy Cohen's baby shower, Erika matched her knee high leopard boots to an Edie Parker bag.
Louis Vuitton Twist MM Chain Flower Print (Shop Louis Vuitton via Fashionphile)
Spotted behind the scenes during filiming, Erika was photographed with a limited edition printed LV Twist bag.
Chanel Bicolor Python Mini Classic Flap (Shop Chanel via Fashionphile)
This bicolor python Chanel mini rounds out Erika's simple black and white look.
Louis Vuitton Petite Malle ($3,375)
Dorit Kemsley joined the ladies for season seven and she rivals Erika for her extra-ness. Though her accent may make it seem otherwise, Dorit hails from Connecticut, and she met her husband on the East Coast before they settled in the 90210. Here, Dorit was spotted back on her home coast wearing a classic version of Louis Vuitton's ever-popular Petite Malle.
When she's not filming, Dorit seems to dip off of the paparazzi's radar. However when filming her fashion choices are particularly snap worthy. For a dinner during NYFW, Dorit carried a teeny, tiny Jacquemus bag which castmate Kyle jokingly made fun of on screen.
Chanel 2.55 Reissue Wallet on Chain (Shop Chanel via Fashionphile)
Dorit's hair is ever-changing and here she pairs a high-ponytail with a Chanel Wallet on Chain on her way to (drumroll please!) a dinner with the other Beverly Hills ladies.
In keeping with the trend of adding a new lady every season, for season eight fans were introduced to Teddi Mellencamp, daughter of musician John Mellencamp. Teddi is one of the more down to earth ladies, and is sometimes teased by her costars for her more basic outfits. Teddi did step it up after her first season on the show, and here she was spotted carrying an eye-catching metallic Saint Laurent mini bag.
Here we have another appearance by Kyle's stunning red Birkin while Teddi wore a simple Gucci mini bag. The question here is did Teddi Borrow this from Lisa Rinna or was it the other way around?
Louis Vuitton Louise Clutch (Shop via Fashionphile)
Teddi keeps her outfits pretty simple, and here she was spotted with her castmates wearing a sleek black jumpsuit accessorized with a basic, but chic LV clutch.
Balenciaga Ville Bag ($1,850)
A self-proclaimed jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, Denise Richards joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in its ninth season. Paparazzi rarely catch Denise these days, and when they do she's often seen with just her phone and a wallet in hand. Snaps from prior to 2018 show Denise carrying the same couple of nondescript bags. Here she's seen with a pink Balenciaga Ville bag, an interesting choice for someone whose fashion usually is basic and understated.
Gucci Sukey GG Denim Tote (Shop Gucci via Nordstrom)
RHOBH newest lady made her debut this season, which premiered last month. Garcelle Beauvais is an actress and former model. Most snaps of her in our photo service's database are from red carpets, galas and events. There are very few street shots of Garcelle right now, but this candid snap did not disappoint. Here, Garcelle is carrying a Gucci denim Sukey tote. Who remembers this bag? I sure do and I 100% would carry this today!
Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM ($1,500)
For running errands Garcelle sticks to the classics and totes a Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM around town. I have a feeling Garcelle has a lot more bags to show off and I look forward to seeing what else she has in store this season.
