While the number of celebrities with amazing street style seems to grow every single day, the ones with the best handbag game seems to remain rather steady. Maybe because bags are just investment pieces, and there are only so many women who are willing (and able) to throw down multiple thousands of dollars for a solid Hermès Birkin or Chanel collection.
To that end, we’ve come up with a list of the top 12 celebrities with the most lust-worthy handbag collections. From folks like Lady Gaga—who once took a permanent marker to an all-white Birkin bag for a trip to Japan—to the impenetrable and diverse bag game of Russian street style maven Miroslava Duma, we’ve rounded up and counted down 12 celebrities who always carry the best handbags.
I can’t say anything about Mondays that a thousand memes haven’t already said for me, but I know this: you are probably sitting at your desk right now, in desperate need of distraction. Well, discreetly click right this way, ladies and gentlemen. This celebrity handbag roundup does not disappoint. Celebs are favoring bold new styles this week from Chanel, Anya Hindmarch, Jimmy Choo and Marni. Don’t resist the urge to let this brief moment of workplace respite translate into a little retail therapy, either. We certainly won’t judge.

Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag
Here’s Bella Thorne, leaving a meeting in Hollywood in which she was perhaps lightly, artfully mauled by a tiger. Bella is carrying a beautiful croc-embossed version of the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour. Celebs have really slowed their roll with the Sacs over the past few months, but this iteration reminds me what’s nice about the bag.

Fendi Micro Monster Baguette
Fashion blogger/shoe designer Chiara Ferragni was recently spotted shopping on Melrose with a petite Fendi Micro Monster Baguette. It’s just the kind of quirky thing one should pair with overalls and a light sweater.

Chanel Flap Bag
Ciara is suddenly back in the spotlight in such a big way, and she has great style, so I won’t ask questions. Here she is having lunch at Barneys in NY with a GORGEOUS brown Chanel Flap Bag with diagonal quilting. Maybe you can reinvent the wheel.

Anya Hindmarch Smiley Backpack
Emma Roberts carried this fetching brown leather Anya Hindmarch Smiley Backpack at JFK recently. Emma is a huge fan of this style; she also owns a red version with eyes. As you can imagine, Anya Hindmarch backpacks were also a popular choice at Coachella.

Givenchy Weekender Bag
Jessica Chastain looked especially ready for the weekend as she left her NYC hotel with a sumptuous black leather Givenchy bag, stuffed to the gills. Take us with you, Jessica.

Jimmy Choo Lockett Bag
Karlie Kloss’s bag game has been pretty A+ as of late. Last week, she showed us a gorgeous burgundy Alexander Wang Chastity Bag, and here she is grabbing a coffee in NYC with an eye-popping new style from Jimmy Choo. Karlie and I clearly have very similar tastes in hardware.

Chloé Drew Bag
British It Girl Poppy Delevigne was seen out and about in NYC on her birthday. She’s carrying a bi-color Chloé Drew Bag, which (quite mysteriously) doesn’t actually soften her overall look that much, or make it look overly feminine. Noted.

Marni Pod Bag
Finally, here’s a shot of Solange Knowles and her husband arriving at JFK to head back home after the Met Gala. Solange is carrying a color-blocked Marni Pod Bag, which would probably sit a little more comfortably on her arm if it weren’t stuffed for travel.
