If there's a group of people who travel more often than pilots and flight attendants, it has to be celebrities.

Between shooting movies, promoting products they've endorsed, and attending media events all over the world, they can rack up an enviable number of frequent flier miles. As a result (and to no one's surprise) they have mastered the art of looking effortlessly chic after a 10-hour trans-Atlantic flight down to the smallest detail, including the accessories they tote their in-flight essentials in.

Some of them stay true to their favorite handbag and can rarely be seen leaving an airport without it. Take Kim Kardashian, for example. The reality star takes her Birkin Himalaya bag everywhere.

But you don't have to spend several hundred thousand dollars (yes, that's how much that Birkin costs) to travel like a celebrity. Angelina Jolie loves her classic black Everlane tote that costs less than $200, and Anne Hathaway's go-to piece of hand luggage is a beautiful suede tote that would fit all of your weekend essentials.
