The Many Bags of Celebrity Moms, Part Four

From Jessica Alba to Chrissy Teigen, check out what a host of the most stylish celeb mamas carry when they're with their kids

Paparazzi culture and social media have made it clearer than ever before that celebrities really are just like us in a lot of ways: most of them do a fair bit of their own grocery shopping and takeout-gathering, they pay parking meters, they hail cabs. There’s a level of wealth that exempts a person from most of everyday life, but most celebrities are somewhere below that and above regular people. That also means that, for those of them who have kids, they frequently end up being moms in public–at the park or playground, going to school drop-offs or church, picking out a Halloween pumpkin.

In honor of Mother’s Day, we took a look at what the most stylish celebrity moms carry during those day-to-day parenting duties, and the results were surprisingly diverse: some carried teeny crossbodies while others chose roomy totes, and there were plenty of picks in between. Check out the best below, and if you’re into celebrity mom style, you can also catch up on our odes to celebrity mom bags from 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Alessandra Ambrosio
Saint Laurent Crossbody Bag
Shop Saint Laurent via Net-a-Porter

The Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in LA is a popular spot for both family togetherness and celebs with great bags.

Alessandra Ambrosio
Tod’s Wave Bag
$2,165 via Saks

So is Au Fudge, Jessica Biel‘s West Hollywood restaurant where wealthy, fashionable moms are encouraged to bring their young kids. This photo of Alessandra and Anja won’t be the last one you see from its periphery today.

Chrissy Teigen
Céline Eel Belt Bag
Shop Céline via Vestiaire Collective

Another (more utilitarian) spot of family togetherness for celebs is LAX. Here, even stars who normally hide their children from paparazzi more or less have to trot them out in order to go through security. Chrissy is pretty chill about the public seeing little Luna, though—her Snapchats are adorable!

Chrissy Teigen
The Row Classic 5 Tote
Shop The Row Bags via Net-a-Porter

That doesn’t, of course, mean mom is always stoked to see the paps during mother-daughter time.

Elizabeth Berkley
Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag
$895 via Bergdorf Goodman

This is arguable the most Mother’s Day-appropriate photo on our list: not only is Elizabeth with her son, but he’s the one who decorated her bag for her.

Gwen Stefani
Christian Louboutin Panettone Bag
Shop Christian Louboutin via Neiman Marcus

Paparazzi mostly leave Gwen alone, except for one very specific time: when she’s taking the kids to church on Sundays.

Heidi Klum
MCM Tambourine Bag
$707 via farfetch.com

Heidi carried this bag on a family outing to buy snowboard equipment.

Jennifer Garner
Brunello Cucinelli Top Handle Bag
Shop Brunello Cucinelli via Neiman Marcus

Like Gwen, Jennifer usually avoids the limelight with her kids except one reliable place they know they’ll find her: church.

Jennifer Garner
Céline Trio Bag
Shop Céline via Vestiaire Collective

Of all the Hollywood moms, Jennifer has always seemed the most like a non-Hollywood mom to me.

Jessica Alba
Pop and Suki Camera Bag
$195 via Pop and Suki

Jessica’s another celeb for whom motherhood significantly changed her public profile and how people perceived her, I think.

Jessica Alba
Tory Burch Convertible Bag
Shop via Tory Burch

It also doesn’t hurt that Jessica’s experiences as a new mom also inspired the launch of her billion-dollar Honest Company.

Jessica Alba
Valentino Rockstud Shoulder Bag
Shop Valentino via Nordstrom

All the better to fund her considerable designer bag habit!

Jordana Brewster
Hermès Evelyne Bag
$3,350 via Hermès

The Evelyne seems like a natural mom choice to me: simple, functional, roomy, easy to carry hands-free.

Jordana Brewster
Hermès Evelyne Bag
$3,350 via Hermès

Jordana clearly agrees.

Kelly Rowland
Chanel Classic Flap Bag
Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective

You learn a lot about strollers from looking for these pics. I think Kelly and Chrissy Teigen might have the same one?

Kelly Rowland
Chanel Flap Bag
Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective

Kelly’s son Titan is so cute.

Lily Aldridge
Jerome Dreyfuss Popeye Bucket Bag

Another Au Fudge appearance, possibly waiting for valet.

Lisa Rinna
Saint Laurent Nano Sac de Jour Bag
$1,990 via Barneys

Of course, it’s not just moms with little kids we’re interested in.

Molly Sims
Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag
Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective

The little ones sure are cute, though.

Nicky Hilton
Chloé Lexa Bag
$1,690 via SSENSE

Is it just me, or are strollers a lot more complicated than they used to be?

Nicky Hilton
Hermès Birkin

Personally, sign me up to be pushed around in one of these.

Rachel Zoe
Chanel Bowling Bag
Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective

The little curls!!

Rachel Zoe
Hermès Kelly Bag

Of course Rachel Zoe’s son is very stylish.

Reese Witherspoon
Saint Laurent College Monogramme Top Handle Bag

Fair to say Reese’s genes are pretty strong, I think.

Vanessa Paradis
Lanvin Trilogy Bag
Shop Lanvin via Neiman Marcus

If you look closely, Lily-Rose is in the back.
