Celebrities and their Hermes Birkin Bags: A Retrospective

There are certain bags that celebrities, no matter who they are, just love to carry. We already showed you an amazing round up of celebrities and their Celine Luggage Totes, and today we are breaking down the celebs that love, covet, and carry Hermes Birkins. The Hermes Birkin is not only the ultimate timeless classic, but it’s also the bag that celebrities have to wait to get just like the rest of us. The Birkin is the equalizer; celebrities and regular folk alike yearn for this bag, but most of them (and us) can’t get it the minute they want it. Yep, that’s right: Hermes doesn’t “gift” bags to celebrities. It doesn’t have to.

Let’s be real: every handbag lover knows of the infamous Hermes Birkin, but for most people, spotting this bag in the wild can be rare. Somehow, though, some celebrities (and non-celebrities, but we don’t have pictures of them) have so many Birkins it is absurd (hey, I’m talking to you, Ecclestone sisters). Let’s all be honest: we’re a bit jealous. The Birkin will never go out of style, and since they’re hard to come by, what better way to take a look at this bag’s many versions than by taking a look at celebrities and the Birkins that they love?

Sit back, grab your latte and a snack and get ready to drool through our massive gallery!

Let’s kick this off with a bag that many consider the ultimate Hermes Birkin: the elusive Gray Himalayan Crocodile Birkin. Whose arm is it on? 28-year-old Tamara Ecclestone.

You will see as you peruse our gallery that many celebs opt for black Birkins, but I really like this brown one Kim Kardashian has.

Supermodel and supermom Heidi Klum doesn’t shy away from making bold fashion statements, and a yellow Hermes Birkin is certainly bold.

Speaking of yellow, this neon yellow Birkin has been making its rounds through the Kardashian klan.

An Olsen twin and an Hermes Birkin – it’s just a match made in heaven.

Victoria Beckham used to carry Hermes all day, everyday, and this is one of my absolute favorites of hers. How can you not drool over this rouge crocodile Hermes Birkin?

One cannot have a gallery of celebrities carrying Hermes Birkins without including Jane Birkin. After all, if it weren’t for her, there would be no Birkin.

The Ecclestone sisters have so many Hermes bags it is mind-boggling, but this is one of my favorites from the duo’s collection. Petra was seen carrying this pink crocodile Birkin, and I have a serious crush on it.

She isn’t just a real housewife, she is the housewife. Bethenny Frankel went from being on a reality show to starting and selling a multi-million dollar business, starring in her reality spinoff show and eventually hosting a talkshow. She owns quite a few Birkins, including this white one with gold hardware.

I have a crush on Olivia Palermo. While her ‘character’ on The City didn’t win many fans, her style has won over practically everyone as does her hunky boyfriend. Sticking with a classic, Olivia is often seen carrying her Black Hermes Birkin.

Have you seen photos of Kimora Lee‘s closet? Talk about dream world. And now this brown crocodile Birkin will haunt my dreams as well.

Before Rachel Zoe began designing her own accessories, she was known for carrying countless Hermes items. I love this muted olive green Birkin.

Oh yeah, some people not only buy Birkins, but they also customize them. Case in point, Lady Gaga. Studs anyone?

Beyonce has done so well that she could probably just buy an entire Hermes store with everything in it. You would think you’d see B with tons of Birkins, but this crocodile version is my favorite of hers.

Victoria Beckham has one of the ultimate fashion wardrobes, but it’s always been her accessories that have me drooling.

I didn’t know who this British socialite was before today, but I really do like Tara Palmer-Tomkinson‘s orange Hermes Birkin.

I pulled this image of Irina Shayk carrying her etoupe Hermes Birkin bag with palladium hardware because I’m obsessed with the bulldog behind her. Ok, and her bag.

Look who it is again! Our friend Bethenny Frankel with another Birkin, this time in gold leather with gold hardware.

Like I said, I kind of love Bethenny, hence another image of her. She has lots Hermes classics like this blue jean Birkin.

Ok so this photo of Tamara Ecclestone is not so flattering, but I really like the color of her Birkin.

I’ve never watched Castle, but it has a great following. Tamala Jones, one of the show’s stars, was spotted with her classic black Hermes Birkin and Christian Louboutin shoes.

You can’t have a gallery of celebrities and their Hermes Birkins without the Kardashians. I tried not to over-do it, but here is one of many images of Kim Kardashian with one of her many Hermes Birkins.

Eva Longoria dresses impeccably well, and she also has a closet filled with Hermes items. For starters, this Birkin.

Oh, Real Housewives, I both love and loathe you. I really enjoy the Beverly Hills cast and typically like Kyle Richards, but this outfit looks weird. At least her Birkin is pretty.

Alex Curran, one of the ultimate WAGs and wife of Liverpool FC captain Steven Gerrard, is photographed often and she is always wearing and carrying the best arm candy.

Kelly Rutherford loves her Hermes bags so much that she uses her own bags on set of Gossip Girl and named her son Hermes. It’s only fitting we include her in this gallery.

I had to include this image of Sarah Ferguson because I am obsessing over her rose shocking Hermes Birkin.

Told you we have a few of the Kardashians! Here is one of Kim dressed like a spy in all black designer clothing and accessories.

There are so many options when it comes to Hermes bags, and the plethora of colors is just as important as the skins. This time we spot Jerry Hall with a grey ostrich Hermes Birkin.

If you follow Chrissy Teigen on Twitter, you will know that she has quite the personality. I don’t agree with everything she says, but I think we can agree on the fact that she is stunning and so is her Birkin.

The Crown Princess Mary and Duchess Katherine look similar, don’t they? All I know is this exotic crocodile Hermes Birkin is drop dead gorgeous and perfectly fit for a royal.

Star Jones feels like a star when she carries her Birkin. Har har har, that was my lamest joke of the lot.

I always see pictures of fitness expert Jennifer Nicole Lee in barely-there outfits in the Miami area. This image was taken in NYC and I must say Jennifer’s legs are great and her bag is even better.

We covered the many bags of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and her pretty blue Birkin is one of the highlights of her collection.

Cindy Crawford looks good when everyone else looks bad, like after a long flight. Her bag of choice as a carry-on? A Birkin.

I was (ok, still am) obsessed with Full House. Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky were the cool relatives we all wanted to have. I will always think of Lori Loughlin as Becky, but it’s nice to see she is still smiling and seems to be a handbag girl just like us.

Oh Marc, you made quite the stir when you plopped your Birkin on the sand next to your Louis Vuitton towel. But you know what, that’s what makes Marc Jacobs so amazing – he lives his life to the beat of his own drummer.

Hey look, it’s Eva Longoria again with another Birkin. Or maybe it’s the same one.

Jessica Simpson is a force to be reckoned with, building her ditzy blonde persona into an empire. I love that she opted for a bright orange Birkin, the classic color of the house.

Hilary Duff was one of the first Disney stars to make it big – big enough to buy a few Birkins. Now she is grown and has a child, but I still think of her as a Disney tween.

Mama Kris Jenner has done well for herself and her girls, and she has quite the accessory collection to boot.

You know why I like this picture of LaLa Vazquez? Because she has no makeup on and just looks like she is out for a walk not planning for the paparazzi to hound her.

Sharon Stone is a household name, and for a good reason. This picture is blurry, but she’s carrying an Hermes Birkin.

Told you Hilary Duff owns a few Birkins. Here she is with a really beautiful blue hue.

I recognized this airport (Ft. Lauderdale International) and Housewife (Kelly Bensimon) immediately. A red Birkin is on my ultimate wish-list, only I wish for a matte Croc version.

Another image, another Kardashian. This time, Kourtney was photographed carrying a gold Hermes Birkin.

This photo of Beverly Hills 90210 star and real-life bad girl Shannen Doherty is so unflattering. An Hermes bag is flattering from every angle, though, so I included her stark white Birkin.

Some people are so naturally beautiful it is frustrating, and I feel that way about Alessandra Ambrosio. Truth is, she makes most people jealous (and so does her bag).

I spend most of my mornings with Kelly Ripa. She always makes me laugh. She also wins points with me for loving designer purses.

Another beautiful woman and another beautiful Birkin – this time, Elizabeth Hurley.

Katie Holmes isn’t often seen with her Birkins, but don’t let her fool you – she owns them.

I don’t know why I’ve done this to myself or you, but I included Heidi Montag. Before she went broke, she bought Hermes Birkins like they were candy bars.
