We can’t get over Kangana Ranaut’s collection of luxury handbags

Every 'Queen' needs a signature handbag. Or twenty.

“There’s something very regal about the way Kangana Ranaut holds herself, almost like she was born into political royalty,” celebrity paparazzi photographer Viral Bhayani once told me. And he would know; as one of Bollywood’s top photogs, his job involves running into celebrities on a daily basis, oft times with their guard down, and keenly observing their body language.

You won’t need to look too far to find evidence to support his theory. The lady can drape a mean sari; no flimsy pallus or itsy-bitsy blouses that the starlets chase after. Kangana likes her saris old school; draped and pinned to perfection. (Detailed analysis here.) Likewise, her taste in handbags speaks of an elite, discerning customer; an Hermès Birkin here, a Lady Dior there.

And while you can’t have her life, you can definitely angle for her stellar taste in handbags instead. Here’s a quick roundup of all the luxury labels that come Kangana-approved.

Kangana Ranaut’s favourite statement bags


And of course, she always has this colour-blocked Burberry satchel to brighten up her day, regardless of the gloomy weather outside and/or Karan Johar’s gems on nepotism.


Why have one, when you can have two? The Queen hitmaker indulged herself with yet another fancy pick from Gucci, this time a beige Jackie tote to bring her A-game to the airport fashion scene.


Not one to part with the classics, the National Award winner gifted herself a dusty pink Lady Dior bag circa 2013. 


If you don’t have an Hermès Birkin occupying pride of place in your closet, how do you ever expect to be taken seriously in Bollywood? Kangana has clearly done her homework well, and if you’re looking to invest in a head-turner, she can personally recommend the Hermès Birkin in Potiron.


And for those days when she isn’t afraid to let her bag compete for attention with her outfit, the Bulgari Serpenti Forever bag finds its way out of her closet and into the lens focus of a hundred paparazzi.


You aren’t quite ready to party with the Bollywood glitterati until you have a statement sling to show up with. But you won’t need to tell Kangana twice; the actress picked up a striped Gucci Sylvie shoulder bag for herself and hasn’t quite been able to put it down ever since.
