Who’s that girl spotted having her black and orange Hermes Birkin carried by her bodyguard?

None other than Lady Gaga. Ok, so my title may have given it away, but I really wanted to tell you how Gaga is gaga for Hermes. Because she is. She doesn’t just carry her Hermes bags, she specializes them. Like the time she studded her black Birkin or the time she took a sharpie to her white Birkin to leave a message to her fans.

The most recent time we saw Gaga carrying Hermes bags was actually not her hand holding the two bags – it was her bodyguard. Lady Gaga had her bodyguard on Birkin duty. Wonder if these bags have been left unaltered?

    How unfortunate that Hermes handbags are becoming trendy. Why, oh, why?!!! Thanks Gaga, Kim k, thanks A LOT.

    • Hoyachica

      Jackie, I’m not sure I understand— what’s wrong with Hermes handbags becoming trendy or just being a preferred bag for some (not all) celebrities?

  • whit

    because it is very very very rare that a company will not capitalize on that popularity (that is what trendy is right?) and no company can keep up with the demand……and soon find ways to cut corners to dish out the products faster..

    but thats hard to say with hermes, they have always gone against the grain and despite the demand, instead created wait lists.

    so who knows, maybe some people still like under-the-(trendy)-radar products that are very well made.

  • Hoyachica

    Hmm… has it really been under the radar though? I think it’s a highly coveted bag and generates a lot of great discussion, for good reason. :-) But that’s a fair point for most products that eventuallly become mass-produced, thus, lesser quality. But I always felt Hermes was a little different as you say, whit. If Hermes substantially decreased the prices and/or stated that they were making bags of lesser quality for mass consumption, then I’d be really worried as well. But… I just don’t see that with this brand given its rep. I personally don’t see there anything to worry about just b/c Kim and Gaga has one (or ten!)– but hey… anything could happen these days!!!!

  • Mai

    It shouldn’t matter. Birkins are in movies, tv shows (i.e. Lily Van der Woodson wears them all the time in GG), etc… Those that can afford it is just very fortunate and should be thankful and not act all stuck up because it’s becoming “trendy”.

    • Hoyachica


  • I think that while Hermes is still so prohibitively expensive, the average Hermes fan doesn’t have much to worry about. Many women may admire the bags, but increased awareness of their existence doesn’t necessarily mean that all that many more women can or will spend that much money for a handbag. I think the customer base will likely expand to a certain extent, but not nearly as much as for a brand that makes bags in the $1k-$2k price range.

  • Vitta

    Speaking about expensive. Have you seen that $2,165 crochet bag by Stella McCartney? For that money, you can buy a vintage Hermes Kelly in leather… Personally, I’m not surprised that Lady Gaga is an Hermes fan. A brilliant artist herself, she appreciates the brand on its merits. Not to confuse with Kim K., who’s in the celebrity mix just by accident. As for Hermes going “commercial”, let’s hope for the best. They’ve been around for 173 years for a reason – they deliver real value on investment. As any successful business, in order to stay competitive, they do react to global market changes. As long as they’re adhering to their strict policy of preserving control and not licensing out their lines, they will be fine.

    TWO Birkins at once? Her glasses are the only thing making her outfit here exceptionally oddball. I kind of like it.

  • BeHappy

    must be nice …. kind of made me mad when she poked holes in the black one… this is a dream bag and, she has no problem destroying them… and before anyone gets in a tissy…i know she can do what ever she wants with them…. she bought them… it just makes me mad that she is abusing them…

  • edoardo

    J’adore. I lvoe Gaga and her stylist, formichetti, because she makes special every creation and so she doesn’t limit herself to buy (so boring in a world full of rich celebs) but she personalize evrything. I have to say that I preferred the studded one :)


  • Velvet 1

    People are funny. They are the ultimate “followers” sheep if you want to call them such. Oh, boy, so-and-so has it I must too.

    Good lord. Get a life. I find it amusing that the “celebrity” left-wing loons whine about everything including RICH republicans but they don’t mind spending thousands on handbags….can you say hipocrits?

  • Lola

    I wouldn’t have guessed Gaga for the Birkins, since they’re more conservative than her usual choices, but they’re so classic at this point that we’re bound to see them on all kinds of people! (ipad)

    Mixing trendy Lady Gaga and the classic Birkins aren’t too out-of-this world. Both are attention-getters in any setting, whether on purpose or not. One thing is certain: this shows that the Lady has great taste in handbags!(ipad)

    I think they both complement each other amazingly well! The classic Birkin with the ultra-modern and trendy GaGa really does it for me. And I like the fact that she made the bags ”her own”!
