“Selling Sunset,” the hit Netflix show following the lives of LA’s most glamorous estate realtors, has taken the world by storm. Cocktail parties, swanky open houses and salacious drama have filled the screen for three seasons. Here at PurseBop, naturally, we couldn’t take our eyes off of the bags!
The reality show has featured all of PurseBop’s favorite bags including Birkins, Chanel Boys galore and a limited edition Gucci bag – and that was just in the very first episode! The cast of this undeniably stylish reality show carry everybody’s favorite classics as well as the latest on-trend pieces.
Season three premiered on Netflix back in early August meaning there are plenty of episodes to binge watch. This show’s handbag game somehow gets stronger each season!
Here are PurseBop’s favorite designer bags worn by the Selling Sunset cast on the show, including Chrishell Stause, Heather Rae Young and Christine Quinn. Enjoy!
Chanel Boys For All!
Not even a decade old, the Chanel Boy Bag, designed by Karl Lagerfeld, is one of the house’s most popular and instantly recognizable designs. Introduced in Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection, the bag was named after Coco Chanel’s close confidant, Boy Capel.
Interestingly, the design was inspired by a cartridge bag, a bag made for hunters. It only seems fitting that so many of the cast of Selling Sunset should choose to carry this style since they are always on the hunt for their next big real estate deal!
The Chanel Boys featured on the arms of the cast are almost as varied as the cast themselves! Daring and decadent Christine Quinn sported a lime green version of the style in addition to a light pink and silver striped design while perky personality Chrishell carried a small blue Chanel Boy. Agents Heather Rae Young and Mary Fitzgerald both opted for Boy bags in neutral shades.
Chanel Classic Flap - A Must-Have for the Cast!
Anyone watching the series wouldn’t be crazy to think that owning a Chanel Classic Flap is a requirement for working at the show’s prestigious Oppenheim Group. A sure-fire classic for bag lovers, it is no surprise that these boss women love the Chanel Classic Flap as much as the rest of us! The bag’s collectability, versatility and functionality make it ideal for balancing a hectic career and time in the public eye.
The cast are fans of the classic black as well as energetic colors and exotic materials including a hot pink version of the bag spotted on both Christine and Mary and a light pink snakeskin variation.
Christine Can't Get Enough of the Louis Vuitton Capucines
Christine Quinn – the villain who everyone loves to hate – is the self-confessed style queen of the group. “Luxury, glamour, style is my thing,” announced Quinn during her season one introduction. The realtor and former model is a lover of power suits in every vibrant color imaginable. She also does not shy away from audacious colors when it comes to picking bags from her favorite brand – Louis Vuitton.
One LV piece in particular stands out as her most treasured – the Louis Vuitton Capucines bag (we didn’t know it was possible for one person to own so many!?!).
Quinn’s enviable Capucines collection spans different colors and materials from exotics like the star’s hot pink Ostrich leather variation and Capucines Mini in pink snakeskin, to a rare fluffy leopard print material. The blonde bombshell is also a fan of the bag in more neutral colors including light pink and white.
The Best of Christine's Quirky Bags
Quinn describes herself as a gothic barbie. With her long blonde locks done up in daring hairstyles combined with her icy stare and oftentimes Cruella de Vil aesthetic, we can certainly see the comparison! Her style when it comes to handbags is no different. Think eccentricity, extravagance and logomania!
Owing to her love of all things Vuitton, Quinn is seen rocking many brightly colored LV designs. Our favorites include the Soft Trunk in Monogram embossed Empreinte leather in an electric orange shade, the Petite Malle in yellow Epi Leather and black trim and the oh so elegant Bleeker Box in Cherry Monogram Vernis leather.
Serving some serious boss vibes at the office, Quinn opted for the Louis Vuitton City Steamer MM in green Crocodile skin paired with an emerald and black checkered power suit, thick-rimmed black glasses and electric green hoop earrings. Truly iconic.
Ever the fashionista, this blonde beauty’s casual house attire is fancier than most people’s Sunday best! Relaxing in the LA mansion she shares with tech tycoon husband, Christian Richard, Quinn wore Louis Vuitton’s Lipstick Case in black Monogram Midnight canvas loosely around her neck. She paired the itty-bitty accessory with LV Monogram print gym leggings and a black top with pronounced fluffy shoulders. The star finished the look with two high ponytails giving off a Harley Quinn vibe (if Harley Quinn spontaneously joined the cast of Keeping Up With the Kardashians!).
The luxury realtor has proved she can pull off any brand in addition to any color. She completed a fully slime green ensemble with a Balenciaga Ville XXS Top Handle bag of the same hue. Another of her fierce looks featured a limited edition black Gucci Sylvie leather tote embossed with flames.
Heather's Mad for Monogram
Heather Rae Young, now engaged to real estate investor and TV personality Tarek El Moussa, is the undisputed Louis Vuitton Monogram lover amongst the group. Season one showed the former Playboy Playmate returning home from a trip abroad stepping out of the airport clutching several LV Monogram pieces, including a Delightful MM. Viewers were shown Young getting picked up in the Oppenheim Group’s Rolls Royce. She definitely knows how to travel in style!
Monogram favorites of Young’s also include the widely popular Pochette Metis and Eva Clutch.
Totes, Totes, Totes!
While the stars of Selling Sunset love to look effortlessly chic carrying top handles around the hottest spots and houses in LA, sometimes a functional tote bag is essential!
And, of course, the stars of the hit show tote around only the best designers. Mary Fitzgerald’s mesh Fendi FF Runaway Shopping Tote finished with a leather trim combines functionality and style.
Agents Maya Vander and Amanza Smith are both fans of Gucci tote bags. Vander can often be spotted carrying a black Gucci GG Imprime Shopping Bag. Smith, on the other hand, loves to change up her bags, once opting for a snake embossed Gucci GG Supreme Tote. Well-known soap star turned realtor Chrishell Stause is frequently seen carrying a Valentino Garavani Rockstud Undercover Print Leather Tote.
Don't Forget About the Birkin!
Not surprisingly LA’s hottest estate agents choose to carry arguably the hottest ‘It’ bag ever – the Birkin. Mary Fitzgerald and Christine Quinn opted for classic shades of the bag. However, Davina Potratz’s teal colored Birkin has to be our favorite. We’re hoping to see some limited edition designs and exotics next season (fingers crossed there is one)!
