We have to admit: sometimes it’s fun to spy into the lives of the rich and famous to see what baby gear they use. So this week we thought we’d check out a few celebrity diaper bags, should you need Halle Berry’s or Brad Pitt’s style guidance. Yes, cool dads carry diaper bags too. And even cooler, he’s carrying one that’s fairly affordable.
Note: if you want to see celebrity babies, you won’t find them here. We respect and support the paparazzi photo ban of celebrity kids.
The chic leather satchel at top, which happens to be Jessica Alba’s diaper bag of choice, is the “Charlie” by Timi & Leslie. It’s just the right size for stashing some bottles and diapers for your baby, then running straight to the office, as this hard-working mama is bound to do. It’s available in nine colors–we love the muted metallic pewter–for $150. And that’s hardly a 90210 price, which is one reason we’ve liked Timi & Leslie (and Jessica Alba) for so long.

Brad Pitt favors the sleek leather look of the Storksak Jamie bag ($150) from the parent-favorite UK designer. They call it a “man bag” but the structured styling and thoughtful details make this a great bag for any parent. And while it does come with a changing pad and detachable key clip, it does not come with Brad Pitt. Sorry.
For years, Mia Bossi has been one of the splurgier bags that we’ve all coveted. We love the bright colors on this Mia Bossi Maria diaper bag in tangerine that Anne Heche is showing off. It’s absolutely gorgeously made, with remarkable detailing, and it’s $400 at their website. Probably free if you’re Anne Heche. (Just kidding.)
At $1230, you might have to be a Kardashian to carry the Prada Nylon Baby Bag. Actually, that is Kourtney Kardashian. So see, I’m right. This is definitely not a diaper bag for everyone. But in happier news, those look like the very affordable handmade moccasins from Freshly Picked that we’ve featured here. I bet a lot more of you can afford those.

Skip*Hop has updated their fabric choices to some cute tone-on-tone patterns. But we admit we’re chuckling at the “Day-to-Night” name, which might be a bit of a stretch for tired moms of new babies.
We are all such fans of Amy Adams, who has such a fresh, fun presence. Not surprisingly, we love that she’s using a simple, understated Longchamps Le Pliage tote as a diaper bag. We’re big fans of this classic bag ourselves, especially in navy, and it’s not hard to keep clean–but keep in mind it’s a bare bones tote with just a small little pouch inside for business cards or a phone. You might want to add your own diaper bag insert if you go this route. $145 at Nordstrom.

It comes with “ruthenium hardware,” whatever that is, but it’s probably the Gucci name that accounts for the $1100 price tag. We are crossing fingers that there are no sippy cup spills or diaper change accidents anywhere near that bag.
