As Jessie J sang in the song “Price Tag”, “it’s not all about the money, money, money, we don’t care about the money, money money” it’s safe to say that judging from the photos of Rihanna and her favourite Louis Vuitton bag she doesn’t care about the money either!
The 26 year old Diamonds hit singer has an estimated net worth of around $120 million, but despite having a bank account featuring at 9 figures she clearly wasn’t bothered about splashing the cash and opted for one of Louis Vuitton’s least expensive purses.
The Alma BB currently retails at $995 , which makes it one of the smaller priced items from the luxury brand, but this didn’t put Rhianna off which just goes to prove that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to be stylish.
In fact the photos of Rihanna travelling to JFK show she was keen to travel light with just her small Louis Vuitton Alma BB (although we don’t doubt there was probably a hoard of her entourage following not too far behind carrying many more bags a designer luggage for her) and we think she’s onto something here. Who really wants to be hauling around a large and heavy oversized bag whilst travelling?
This isn’t the only time Rhianna’s been seen out and about with her little LV friend, oh no. This firm favourite has popped up several times over the past few years, in fact we think it was 2013 that she was first spotted with it. But since then Rihanna has been spotted with it many more times including a lunch date in Beverley Hills.
This time dressed in heels and a very tight skirt and top, while she wore the bag across her body, this actually seems to be her favourite way to wear this bag.
More recently Rhianna was spotted out on the town casually dressed in a black bomber jacket and ripped jeans and guess what…….yes her faithful LV bag was right there once again.So the low down on Rhianna’s favourite bag, the Louis Vuitton Alma traces its pedigree to the original Art Deco icon which was introduced in 1934. Rhianna’s favourite is made from Damier Ebene canvas and the miniature version she is so fond of easily holds keys, wallet, smartphone and lipstick.
With a strap that adjusts the bag to waist or hip height, the Alma BB can be worn across the body for hands-free ease. It’s actually 12.6 (length) x 9.4 (height) x 5.0 (width) inches in size, so we could say small but perfectly formed. It has a double zip, which allows a wide opening for easy access but it also feature a padlock closure just to keep everything extra safe and a proactive key bell for the said padlock.
The interior is fully lined with a textile and the bag also features an interior pocket to a phone. To prevent scuffing and damage the bottom of the bag has protective studs.
