Whether for work or pleasure, travel is a large part of celebrities’ lifestyles, so it’s not surprising that they have turned airports into fashion arenas. And we economy-traveling folk often look to them for inspiration and tips to make our own trips more comfortable and stylish — be it shoes, bags, or jeans.
Of course, if you are an A-lister, you don’t exactly travel light. We’ve all seen photos of celebs standing next to piles of stacked suitcases filled with, we imagine, glamorous designer outfits and countless pairs of shoes. And while we totally envy the contents of said suitcases, it’s the luggage itself that we’re more interested in today.
Some celebrities have stuck with their favorite brands for years. Model and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss, for example, can rarely be seen rolling anything other than an Away carry-on. The brand has only been around for three years, but it has already won over Tinseltown — just ask actresses Rashida Jones and Mandy Moore.

But when it comes to staying true to one brand, nobody does it better than the Queen. Ever since her honeymoon in 1947, she’s been traveling with her Globe-Trotter suitcases, and so does all of the Royal Family (even the youngest members, Prince George and Princess Charlotte). Only time will tell if Meghan Markle, who’s about to officially become part of it all, will follow suit and retire her Ghurka duffel for a Globe-Trotter set.
One brand, it seems, reigns supreme with the It-crowd and that’s Louis Vuitton. From the entire Kardashian clan to the Hadid sisters, it’s fair to guess the highest concentration of LV-embossed bags and suitcases likely resides in Los Angeles.
Now, take a look at some of the luggage brands celebrities can’t get enough of.
