Celebs have it easy!
They have their pick of the hottest fashion and if they don't find something they want, a designer will jump at the chance to make something custom. Some of the most iconic handbags are named after celebrities. Whether it is Berkin, Stan or Alexa, these ladies have inspired some of the best selling accessories on the market.
Here are just a few of the most notable namesake bags:
Hermé¨s 'Birkin' Bag
What is undoubtedly the most famous and desired bag, the Birkin actually has a waiting list. It all started in 1981 when Hermé¨s chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to Jane Birkin on a flight. Jane started to complain about not being able to find the perfect bag that was spacious and that she actually liked. In 1984, he created a black supple leather bag for her. The rest is history. Oh by the way, the prices range from $9,000 to $150,000.
Marc Jacobs 'Stam' Bag
One of the most iconic 'it' bags of 2000, Marc Jacobs famously named this bag after model Jessica Stam. Everyone who was anyone was rocking this $1,400 bag. With the chain strap and classic double stitch quilting, the bag is topped off with a kiss lock closure.
Mulberry The Alexa Bag
What was one of the most desired and cult favourites in the fashion world, this leather satchel was a very smart move for Mulberry. The company named this bag after iconic English fashion model Alexa Chung who is regularily seen sporting this bag. It could be yours for just $1,500.
Luella ‘Gisele’ Bag
This was the must-have bag back in the Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears days. Named after famous super model Gisele Bundchen who wore it down the runway, this bag became the 'it' bag overnight as everyone was carrying it.
Lady Dior by Dior
Princess Diana made this bag look effortlessly chic and sophisticated. Nothing has changed over the years as the bag is still being sold out in stores and still screams exquisite taste. As Lady Diana's go-to bag, celebs like Victoria Beckham, the Olsen twins, Anne Hathaway, Paris Hilton and even Sarah Jessica Parker are making this their go-to bag as well.
