For most female celebs, a designer bag is an extension of their style; it can elevate their simple outfit of jeans and a T-shirt or glam up a cocktail dress. You can use it to run errands and if the bag is a tote, you can stuff your groceries into them. Actresses love designer bags so much that they are willing to pay in the high thousands so they can have the latest "It Bag" or a must-have satchel. They're so rich they don't care about how much a bag costs.
Some celebs are brand loyal; for example, Jessica Alba is a long-time Louis Vuitton fan. Some celebs mix it up. Kylie Jenner has several coveted Birkin bags, but she also has high-cost bags from designers like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. And some celebs go high and low. Eva Longoria, one of the most stylish actors in Hollywood, does just that. Yep, she has a few Birkins, but she's often seen wearing more affordable bags from the likes of Coach and, above all, her favorite bag maker Gerard Darel, whose bags cost in the affordable $300 range.
Most of the bags that celebs love are so high in price that you can use the money to buy a car. Like Kim Kardashian's Birkin that costs $60,000+.But whatever brand a celeb chooses, as soon as she is caught carrying the latest trendy or stylish bag, it's guaranteed to set trends worldwide. So, do you want to know which bag a celeb loves? Well, we've compiled a list of 30 handbags that celebs just can't go without. You'll find out about the absolute most gorgeous, hottest celebrity handbags around.
30 Jessica Simpson: Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag, $3,395
Jessica Simpson has so many bags that she would never have to repeat wearing them. One of her most beloved bags is the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag. With a feminine top handle detail, this retro renewal bag is made of luxurious leather. It looks as if the bag is only one color, but if you look closely, you can see the embroidered floral cutouts. Gilt hardware ads some shiny glamour, and there's a removable strap. Simpson has good taste and her fans may have bought the Sicily Bag too to be like her because it is sold out everywhere online. Total cost: $3,395. (Source: Purseblog)
29 Kim Kardashian: The Hermes Birkin Bag, Limited Edition, $40,000-$60,000
For the holidays in 2013, Kanye West gave his beloved wife one of the most sought-after and most expensive bag on the planet. He didn't just give her a Hermes Birkin bag. He collaborated with American artist George Condo to make a hand-painted Birkin that depicted an image of a trio nudes and one angry green monster. Kim loved the bag and took to Instagram to show it off. It's entirely bespoke, the bag, so there are no existing Condo/Hermes Birkin bags out there. A Birkin bag costs $40,000, but with the art work, that figure went really up. (Source: HollywoodReporter)
28 Angelina Jolie and Zahara Jolie-Pitt: Valentino Histoire Bag, $1,695
Angelina Jolie's favorite bag is the Valentino Histoire bag. The bag is a little on the big size, so it works as a tote that you can use while shopping. The Histoire bag is all about femininity, and the gold-tone hardware, the braided leather detail, and two front flap pockets make this a classic Histoire bag. When Jolie picked up her bag from Valentino, a surprise was waiting for her. The designer gave Jolie's daughter, Zahara, a small replica of the bag. The bag costs around $1695. (Source: InStyle)
27 Liv Tyler, Drawstring Louboutin Bag, $700-$1,000

Liv Tyler is a fan, and she is often seen out and about wearing a drawstring Louboutin bag. Like many Louboutin bags, Liv Tyler's bag is lined with his signature red leather. The bag ranges from $700-$1,000.
26 Jennifer Aniston: The Chanel Purse, $4,000 to $5,000
Jennifer Aniston is always stylin' when she steps outside. She prefers simple T-shirts and distressed denim, clothing that's really affordable and comfortable. But when it comes to bags, Aniston has a penchant for the most luxurious ones. She owns bags from Chloé, Céline, Chanel and Mark Cross, and they go with everything. But Aniston's most beloved bag--besides the crossbody Cross--is the iconic quilted Chanel purse in black, the purse that lets the world know that you have very good taste. The bag costs from $4,000 to $5,000.
25 Mariah Carey: The Birkin Bag, Price Unknown
When Mariah Carey invited Vogue Magazine to see a slither of her massive closet in her New York City penthouse, we were treated with so many high-net-worth brands in the world lying in front of some aisle. We could see Chanel and Louis Vuitton bags, but our eyes stopped at the bright salmon-colored Hermes Birkin bag. This just happens to be her most loved bag, as it was a gift to her by Floyd Mayweather. Birkins, as you know, are both rare and expensive. There are waiting lists for the bags. The bags range from $12,000 to more than $200,000. But who knows where Carey's bag lines up in terms of cost.
24 Rihanna, Dior Oblique Bag, $4,097.57
Rihanna loves bags from Louis Vuitton and Chanel, but when she discovered a Dior bag from its Oblique collection, it became her go-to bag when she went out and about.

She has owned a black one for a while now, and she also has versions in neutral brown, navy blue with a leopard design on its sides.

It may look small, but it's surprisingly roomy inside for all your essentials. The bag is sold out everywhere, and its estimated retail price is a little over $2,000.
20 Selma Blair et al: Senreve Maestra Bag, $900+
There's no wonder why celebrities are falling for Senreve, founded by Coral Chung. From Selma Blair to Priyanka Chopra, and from Greta Gerwig to Sophia Bush, these celebs and more are snatching up the Maestra, Chung's signature bag because of its functionality. As Chung told E! News, "I was inspired to start this company because I could never find the perfect bag. Most luxury bags are fragile, easily scratched, exorbitantly priced—not meant to for daily use and really difficult to organize my life in. I was also always struggling to get my laptop in my bag, which usually damaged the bag or caused it to sag in a sad way." So she made a bag with a padded pocket to fit your iPad or laptop, for example, and also have room for many of the things you carry around.
19 Poppy Delevingne: Chanel Boy Bag, $5,000
English model and actress Poppy Delevingne is at the center of the fashion world, and can afford to buy any bag she desires.

To the liking of Coco Chanel, the bag, and many others, has a quilted design and an interlocking "C" on the flap. If you want one, prices start at around $4000 and go up to roughly $5,000 depending on the style. (Source: MadisonAvenueCouture)

And yet it's not so big to make it not look like luggage. The bag is affordable at $2,450. (Source: People)
16 Jennifer Connelly: The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle "Trunk" Bag, $5,750.00
We're fans of Jennifer Connelly, who always looks fashionable when stepping out, but we haven't seen her for a while and she hasn't made any notable films that we know of. We look back fondly to the time when Connelly nailed it in movies like Requiem For A Dream and A Beautiful Mind, where she won the Academy Award for The Best Supporting Actress. But some paps have snapped pics of her, and in most of them, she's holding The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle. The LV Malle can be used as a clutch or as a cross body shoulder bag. The bag pays homage to Louis Vuitton's successful trunkmaking, which is why the Petite Malle looks like a mini trunk. The cost of the bag is $5,750.00. (Source: Eu.LouisVuitton)
15 Kylie Jenner: An Assortment Of Bags, $4,554,000
When Kylie Jenner shared a video of her wardrobe closet, we could see how many Birkin bags she has. She also has many Louis Vuitton bags, some of which are rare because the luxury goods company teamed up with artists to make bags truly one-of-a-kind. Dior logo bags are also everywhere, as well as purses from Prada. Thanks to Hello Giggles, the site calculated the cost of the bags. All her LV bags and duffles have a total cost of $14,000. Her quilted Chanel bags cost $5,000 each and Kylie has many. She also has a whopping 15 Birkin bags, which sell on the “low” end at $10,000 and can top out in the six figures. So that's another $300,000 each. Total damage: $4,554,000.
14 Paris Hilton: The Rose Tyrien Birkin Bag, $65,000
Paris Hilton has just scored with a one-of-a-kind and very bespoke customized Hermes Birkin Bag, also called The Rose Tyrien. The bag is tricked out with thousands of Swarovski crystals, unlike other Birkins. Hilton said, "If she were a bag, she would be this Birkin." The founder of Prive Porter said, "For the crystals, it took 60 hours to put 30,000 crystals on it. Think about that: it takes a Hermes craftsman around 45 to make the bag itself.” This Birkin costs $65,000. (Source: PurseBlog)
13 Priyanka Chopra: Fendi Peekaboo Bag, $5,900
Priyanka Chopra is always stylish, despite the fact that she frequently travels away from the U.S. to shoot movies abroad. She makes the combo of white T-shirt and jeans a fashion statement. And she always carries some bling, which is why she fell for Fendi's Peekaboo bag. The bag comes in different styles. Chopra has the large floral-embroidered satchel bag made from calfskin. It has flat top handles and a removable, adjustable shoulder strap. When the Peekaboo came out, it was an instant hit. The cost is $5,900 but goes up based on design. (Source: IndianExpress)

7 Amal Clooney: Michael Kors Collection Bancroft Tote, $1,190.

The satchel bag, which comes in many different colors, was made to hold women's essentials like iPhones, iPads, wallets, paperwork and portable chargers. It was also made for women with careers. Amal Clooney has the Bancroft Large Calf Leather Satchel, and she was once photographed itemizing her travel essentials in the bag at the airport. So, yes, the tote makes a great travel bag too.

An oversized bag with hula hoops for straps? Welcome to the weird world of Karl Lagerfeld, who is known to be irreverent and a style genius.

4 Khloe Kardashian: Chanel Classic Flap Bag, $3,000+
Khloe Kardashian has been seen numerous times carrying Chanel's Classic Flap Bag, so we're assuming she loves it. The Quilted Classic, aka the Classic Flap, was first introduced by Karl Lagerfeld when he joined Chanel in 1983. Although he kept the same silhouette as the original 2.55, he added the iconic interlocking CC logo.

2 Jessica Alba: Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag, $4,250
In 2014, the It Bag was the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag. It's a major difference from most LV bags and luggage, as it has no repeated image of the LV logo. In fact, it doesn't even look like an LV. Even without the ostentatious logo, many celebs were caught carrying one. Jessica Alba is a fan, and she's been seen on multiple occasions carrying the Lockit Bag in pale pink. We suppose it's her fave bag, as she's a long-time Louis Vuitton fan. The bag was one of the ways LV tried making over its image so the lack of the logo was a way to create bags that are more subtle in nature while still keeping its brand high-end. The bag costs $4,250.
1 Eva Longoria: Gerard Darel Leather Zip Hobo Bag, $325
Eva Longoria has been a style maker and the best-dressed actress on red carpets or events ever since her show Desperate Housewives ended. She always looks glam no matter what she wears. Her weakness is bags, but she's no snob. Sure, she owns a few Birkins, but she also has many affordable bags from Coach. But her favorite designer is Gerard Darel. The fashion house created the Leather Zip Hobo Bag, which, of all the Darel bags she owns, is one of her top favorites. It's not hard to see why. You can just throw in all your stuff in the bag. Gerard Darel bags are also very affordable; you can get Eva's for $325. We checked around and the highest priced bag costs $500, which, for celebs, is very affordable. (Source: PurseBlog)
