Celebs and Their Favorite Handbags

You have probably noticed that celebrities absolutely love handbags.  Open any tabloid or fashion glossy and famous people are pictured carrying their bags everywhere.  From airports to the streets of NYC, famous and well known faces are never without their handbags.  What is it about bags that makes people love them so much?  Celebs especially can have any handbag they desire.  Designers and big labels are constantly showing celebrities their newest designs and often sending them several styles free of charge.  If a celebrity is pictured carrying a certain handbag then it often sells out in a matter of hours.

Celebrities though are not all created the same.  There is a definite ranking and pecking status when it comes to their order of importance.  Someone such as a member of the Royal family has higher status with consumers and fans than a mild celeb from a reality TV show.  Many designers don’t want lower ranked celebrities carrying their handbags as it muddies the labels image.  Image is very important to big brands.  They cannot have everyone carrying their bags or it will appear as if they are not a luxury brand.  Luxury brands have their own image to maintain.  Many high end brands higher super star celebs for ad campaigns.  Monthly fashion magazines have pages flooded with luxury ad campaigns featuring top movie stars and influencers.  These campaigns display the newest and most luxurious designer handbags.  Consumers often tear out these campaigns not only because they are so beautiful, but also to keep for future shopping trips.  Money spent showing a celebrity and a brand’s new handbag usually results in a good return on investment.  Return on investment is important to these luxury houses and a good part of their yearly sales is because of handbags and leather goods.

Designer Handbags

Celebrities themselves often favorite larger handbags.  Larger handbags obviously carry more essentials so it’s easy to see why they favor them.  When a famous movie star is pictured gliding through an airport she is usually pictured carrying a larger satchel bag or perhaps a luxurious tote slung over her shoulder.  Tote bags are wonderful as you can be nearly hands free when you put it over your shoulders and many celebs love this style; especially if they have small children.  During awards season, movie stars present themselves on the red carpet with smaller clutch handbags.  Many of these tiny bags sparkle and shine and are like little pieces of jewelry.  Designer handbags are an important element to celebrities and the way they dress.  From dressing down and going to the gym to attending an awards show, these famous faces are always carrying a handbag.
