Remember when we had Heart Evangelista reveal her favorite designer items? Well, there's definitely more where that came from. In fact, Heart is starting a whole series on her YouTube channel just on her closet faves, which means we'll be finding out more of her top picks soon!

For the first installment of the series, the actress revealed all her favorite bags. Keep scrolling to see each and every one, including the stories behind them!

Heart Evangelista's Favorite Designer Bags

1. Louis Vuitton Capucines Mini

Heart's first pick came straight from Paris—a pink Capucines Mini gifted to her by Louis Vuitton. She loves it not only for its unique look, but also for how spacious it is despite being a tiny bag. Don't you just love the multi-hued pastel leather?

2. Cartier Guirlande de Cartier Mini Model Top Handle Bag

Aside from collecting their jewelry, Heart loves Cartier's bags, too. Her favorite from their selection is this box bag with gold garland motif, which she says is a definite conversation starter. "It's small, very modern, it matches everything even if it's red and I just love it," she says.

3. Ulyana Sergeenko Rose Bag

It's no secret that Heart is a huge Ulyana Sergeenko fan. She has watched the Russian designer's couture shows in Paris, and even has a couple of her pieces. One of which is this rose-shaped bag from the brand's couture line that she wore at the SONA back in 2017!

4. Judith Leiber Clutches

Heart has not one but four Judith Leiber pieces in her top faves! The first is a personalized clutch with her real name, Love Marie, which the brand sent to her as a gift. She considers it as her "ID bag," because whenever she would bring to dinners or special occasions she no longer has to introduce herself. How's that for a multi-purpose piece?

She also has a clutch with her screen name Heart, aptly placed over a sequin-covered design inspired by a clapperboard. Apparently, this was a bag that her dad urged her to save up for!

5. Judith Leiber Popsicle Pillbox and Dachshund Bag

The rest of the actress' Judith Leiber picks are a little unexpected, but definitely still very much true to her personality. She has a popsicle-shaped pillbox that's covered in crystals (she keeps vitamin C in it) and a gorgeous dachshund-shaped minaudière.

6. Hermès Birkin

Of course, a list of designer bag favorites won't be complete without some Hermés. Heart talked about her first ever Birkin, which seems like a size 30 Bleu Brighton or Bleu Nuit.

According to Heart, she got it when she was 22 or 23 as a gift from her dad. She then candidly recalls that he gave it to her after she made peace with her family after a particularly big fight. LOL!

7. Hermès HAC 32

Another personal favorite Heart has from Hermés is a HAC 32 that she painted on herself. She shares that she even had to redo the artwork on this one later on because she didn't like how the first one turned out!

8. Hermès Himalayan Birkin 25

Last but definitely not the least from Heart's Hermes collection is her Himalayan Birkin 25. "I'm not gonna lie, it took me an arm and a leg and a whole lifetime of working. Just kidding! Half a lifetime of working for this bag," the actress admits. It was definitely an investment piece for her, but she thinks it did pay off in the end because the bag has since tripled in value.

However, Heart does note that she snagged it for a cheaper price than we'd expect, though it did take her a really long time to get. "It's definitely something that I do treasure and hopefully my kids don't end up selling it in the future. Hopefully they just keep it in an acrylic box and use it whenever they want," she adds. "It's definitely the best bag ever."

9. Bvlgari Serpenti Forever

Heart picked out two crossbody bags from her collection that she's currently loving. This Bvlgari piece is one of her recent finds, and she loves it so much that she has a few more in different colors coming in the mail! "I like the color, it matches everything, it's easy to wear, and it fits a lot of stuff. And I like the detail, it has malachite eyes," she says.

10. Dior Bobby Bag

Dior's Bobby Bag is another recent acquisition for Heart, but it quickly became one of her go-to's for its chic, classic look. And from the looks of it, it would absolutely go with all of the actress' all-white outfits!
