Whether it's a shoulder bag, tote or satchel, celebrities are obsessed with lugging around big bags. I suppose their hectic lives require bags that serve multiple purposes. These bags must be spacious without sacrificing style. Too bad all celebrities don't have the same keen eye for spotting the perfect big bag as yours truly has.
The three beautiful actresses pictured here are all toting big bags, but only two of them get my stamp of approval. Can you guess who made the cut? OK, this one is too easy, I know. The always gorgeous Halle Berry is carrying one of my favorite bags ever, the Bulgari Dalya ($2100). This sophisticated shoulder bag with its sumptuous leather exterior and well-placed metallic accents dresses up Halle's understated style. America's sweetheart, Julia Roberts, is carrying yet another classic design, the Fendi Peek-A-Boo Satchel ($1980). This large satchel can be carried by hand, on the arm or over the shoulder. The divided interior is ideal for storing daily essentials on one side and files or magazines in the other. It seems Julia understands the importance of keeping organized and looking great while doing it.
Which brings me to our final celebrity and her atrocious bag. Every time I have the misfortune of seeing Ashley Olsen's bag, I'm reminded of the fact that Bottega Veneta is inexplicably responsible for creating it. There's not much I can say about the Cushion Tote ($2750) except it's big like a college student's laundry bag. I guess it can serve as a pretty good travel bag, but, then again, it's so shapeless and ugly that I can't imagine anyone other than one half of the Olsen twins ever wanting to use it. So Halle and Julia are golden with their respective big bags, and poor Ashley is better off with something smaller and far more stylish than her current selection.
