15 Handbags Celebrities Are Always Spotted With at the Airport
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.
Some A-listers like Jennifer Aniston and Eva Longoria opt for smaller purses, which is a good idea if you don’t like opening your carry-on suitcase each time you need your phone or a credit card from your wallet.
Here, we rounded up 18 celebrity-approved handbags that will have you looking like Tinseltown’s finest next time you are on the road.
