It’s time to bag yourself a purse with star appeal.

Luxury handbags have become a mainstay in celebrity and royal fashion over the years, with famous faces like Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Bieber, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle carrying the latest must-have styles from designers like Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton.

From Princess Diana’s elegant Lady Dior bag to Kim Kardashian’s Judith Lieber alien minaudière, these statement pieces can elevate even the most casual outfit.

Kate Middleton
The Princess of Wales is a fan of Aspinal of London’s elegant handbags.

Whether your style is more classic and chic like Kate Middleton or of-the-moment trendy like Hailey Bieber, there’s certain to be a designer bag that fits your personality.

While most of us don’t have the contacts (or cash) to score an Hermès Birkin — unlike Kanye West — check out plenty of other readily-available styles carried by your favorite stars below.

Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie bag

Hailey Bieber, Emma Roberts and Sydney Sweeney are among the stars who love this shoulder bag crafted in the designer’s signature woven style. Named after Jodie Foster, who once shielded her face against the paps with the then-unnamed purse, the piece is available in an incredible 22 shades.
