This handbag roundup features a surprising number of celebs over 50, and of course, their handbag selections are superior to mine and maybe also most people’s in almost every way. We still threw in some Hadids and Dakota Johnson for good measure, but seriously, let a grown (celebrity) woman teach you how to carry a designer handbag. Please.
Givenchy Lucrezia Bag
Shop Givenchy via Neiman Marcus
We so rarely get both Hadids in one shot. Paps recently spotted Bella and Gigi leaving Gigi’s NYC apartment together. Bella is carrying an embossed leather Givenchy Lucrezia, and Gigi is carrying her fave Versace Palazzo Empire Mini Bag.
Balenciaga Crossbody Bag
Shop via Balenciaga
Acting/modeling legend Bo Derek was seen outside of LAX carrying this unassuming buttery brown leather Balenciaga Crossbody Bag.
Louis Vuitton Noé Bag
$1,440 via Louis Vuitton
Dakota Johnson continues to carry this Louis Vuitton Noé Bag during her 50 Shades Darker press tour. She looks extra glam here, posing with her Noé outside of the Bowery Hotel.
Anya Hindmarch Ebury Stripe Tote
$999 via Saks Off 5th
Kristin Davis recently carried this rainbow-colored Anya Hindmarch Ebury Stripe Tote to LAX. Once inside, she happily discussed her views on the day’s travel topics with members of the press.
Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Tote
Shop via Neiman Marcus
Rachel Ray carried this oversized woven Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Tote to her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Frankly, it always gives me an “uh-oh” feeling when nighttime TV personalities interview daytime TV personalities. It just seems so unnatural.
The Row Day Luxe Tote
Shop The Row via Neiman Marcus
Reese Witherspoon flashed her ultra-luxe The Row Day Luxe Tote at the cameras while out and about in LA. And I may be wrong, but I think she is wearing that cardigan as a top. This may be a thing normals can do now too, but you guys try it first and report back.
Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag
$2,300 via Gucci
Salma Hayek was not about to slow down for the cameras during this particular jaunt to LAX. She’s carrying a beautiful quilted Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag.
Tina Knowles Lawson
Chanel Boy Bag
Shop Chanel Boy Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Finally, here’s the Queen Mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, heading into Craig’s in LA for dinner while carrying a black Chanel Boy Bag. As you would expect, it pairs perfectly with her black jumpsuit.
