Celebrities own a lot of designers goods, and we often see them toting the latest It bag or the trotting around in the trendiest pair of shoes. But given their ever-changing wardrobe, there must be an ultimate item—the most loved, most worn, most used and abused one that they’ve definitely gotten the most bang for their buck from by now.
Well, we took the time to ask them that simple question, and their answers reveal a lot about their preferences, their lifestyle, and what they value the most when it comes to shopping for designer goods. Some turned out to be shoe persons, others, handbag persons, and there’s this one celebrity who values her luxury timepiece the most.
If you happen to be looking for a designer piece to invest in, perhaps these tried and tested pieces will guide you through your hunt.
"I think it's my Chanel Jumbo Flap Bag. It's the first designer bag I purchased after I won Miss Universe. I love how I can still use it until now, and I definitely imagine myself still using it years down the line. It never goes out of style. You won't regret choosing timeless pieces over trendier ones."

"The most used designer item now would be my Balenciaga jacket. When I buy designer, I usually want it to be a classic item rather than a trendy one, or I really have to love it! It's a black Balenciaga jacket, and I wear it to work, meet-ups with friends, or as a quick fix for those in-a-rush outfits. Plus, I'm super lamigin, so I'm always wrapped up."
