LOOK: 6 of Marian Rivera's Most Unique Designer Handbags
1. Schiaparelli Anatomy Jewelry Bag
Marian looked like a living doll at a dinner party she attended. Clad in a Chanel dress and with her hair daintily held by a bow, she surprised everyone by completing this outfit with a Schiaparelli bag that looked more decorative than functional. Don't be fooled though, with a depth of 11 cm, it is actually roomy enough for all your essentials.

2. Simone Rocha Micro Egg Perspex Bag
If you're looking to make a quiet yet impactful statement, look no further than this pearlescent bag by Simone Rocha. It boasts of a low-key sophistication that is buzz-worthy but not totally jarring, as was the case when Marian broke her classy all-black evening look for The Pink Ball.

3. Bvlgari Serpentine Tote
Leave it to Marian to mix and match native weaves with luxury pieces. Her Serpentine Tote was her arm candy of choice for the Kaayo store opening, and we love how the white popped against her ethnic print jumpsuit while the gold from the iconic serpent tied everything together.

4. Ralph & Russo Alina Clutch
Marian was an absolute vision at the 2022 GMA Gala Night. In yet another masterful look she collaborated on with her go-to stylist Melville Sy of Studio 24c, she stole the spotlight with husband Dingdong Dantes—and their Couple of the Night award is proof! The devil is in the detail, however, as she was toting this one of a kind clutch that boasted of a sculptured feather handle that was juxtaposed against soft mink fur. So gorgeous!

Who can forget Marian's outfit for the 2022 Preview Ball? The Life Peg honoree ushered in the height of the Barbiecore trend with her own iteration that is equal parts fun and glamorous. We can't think of a better bag to complete this look with than the statement-making Cult Gaia masterpiece!
