If you follow Bethenny Frankel, then you know that she loves a good handbag. In honor of National Handbag Day on October 10, Frankel, a Real Housewives of New York City alum and founder of lifestyle brand Skinnygirl, showcased her enviable luxury handbag collection via Instagram Stories to her millions of followers.
And in true Real Housewives’ glamour and decadence, Frankel’s collection didn’t just include classics but super rare pieces as well as a one-of-a-kind Birkin!
Over the years Frankel has been spotted with more pieces of designer arm candy than even we can count. But it wasn’t until last week that we learned just how massive her designer handbag inventory really is. This was the first time she exhibited all of her handbags (and divulged that her first major purchase was a Louboutin bag!).
We know what you’re waiting for… Here are the top picks that stood out from the reality star turned fashion designer’s assortment of designer gems. Enjoy!
She's Gaga for Gucci
The Gucci GG Marmont is a popular bag of the moment. Frankel went for a luxurious touch in opting for a velvet fabric with embroidered flower design and ‘LOVED’ letters for extra stand-out factor.
As Chic as Chanel
This blue Chanel Boy Bag in tweed is a pop of color in the star’s collection!
Frankel’s Birkin collection boasts a range of materials and colors and is enviable to say the least. Exotics plus an array of colors? Yes, please. Our favorites include a peachy tone and croc in a navy hue. (Any guesses on which Hermès shades these might be?)

We’re guessing this is the piece of the collection you’ve been waiting for. Many celebs’ handbag closets boast limited-edition pieces, but Frankel’s goes one step further. Her collection includes a truly one-of-a-kind Birkin!
What are your thoughts on the exclusive B? Is it your style?
Personalised by artist Peter Tunney, the classic gray bag has been covered in newspaper headlines and front pages. “LOVE” and “LIFE” have been painted in block letters on opposite sides of the purse.
