Celebrities truly live hectic lives, making it sometimes impossible for them to go home and freshen up. Thus, they are required to be on-the-go and bring all their must-haves in their trusty yet fashionable bags wherever they go – may it be in their shootings, guestings, or other shindigs.
For sure, a lot of us are wondering what are the stuff our favorite celebrities usually bring with them to work most of the time. And thankfully, ABS-CBN head writer-slash-online host Darla Sauler is there to fulfill our curiosity and further connect us to our beloved stars by doing bag raids on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s digital program “Push Now Na” in the recent years.
In this episode of Kapamilya Snaps, let’s take a peek on some of our favorite celebrities’ daily must-haves and even other surprising stuff that we couldn’t think that an artist would bring!
Aside from being a great actress and admirable philanthropist, Iba ‘Yan host Angel Locsin is also a bag designer! In fact, she’s the one who designed the convertible bag she usually uses at work and in her travels, which also contains her permit to carry firearms, titanium whistle, and switchblade.
While most female celebs prefer carrying handbags and shoulder bags, Andrea Brillantes, Loisa Andalio, Angelica Panganiban, Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo, and Catriona Gray all admitted that they are more inclined to using backpacks wherever they go.
Having long hair then, the Kadenang Ginto star was abundant in scrunchies and hair ties. As she used to get bashed for posting blurry pictures, the The General’s Daughter actress always brought her handy digital camera, as well as her instant camera and its film pack and photo album, with her.
It may be unbelievable, but the “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” leading ladies are both fond of backpacks. However, the only difference is that the Paano Kita Mapapasalamatan host put a lot of stuff in her bag, which included her planner, scarf, clothes crease remover, prayer booklets, rosary, healing crystals, and jewelry pouch, while the Walang Hanggang Paalam star only had a few, including the utility bills she had to pay yet and her own lapel garter.
She may not want to have a bag that would make her look like a schoolgirl, but Miss Universe 2018 surprised us when she brought out a fancy notebook and a pencil case that contains various colors and types of pens and even a short ruler!
Meanwhile, Kathryn Bernardo, Maymay Entrata, Yeng Constantino, Yassi Pressman, Kim Chiu, Pia Wutzbach were all using sling and shoulder bags when Darla conducted a bag raid.
The interesting finds we spotted on their bags were fashion tape for the The House Arrest Of Us star; extra set of clothes for the iWant ASAP host since she was only starting her showbiz career then; digital camera for the Pop Rock Royalty who’s also fond of documenting her daily life on her YouTube channel; speakers, phone holder, and ID picture of her mom for the FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano leading lady; a throwback photo of her and sports watch for the regular It’s Showtime co-host; and a bar of chocolate for the Miss Universe 2015.
On the other hand, Julia Montes, Janella Salvador, Beauty Gonzales, Erich Gonzales, Sharon Cuneta, and Charo Santos-Concio all prefer to carry chic yet simple handbags at work. Aside from the essentials, we were able to see utility bills in the 24/7 main actress’ bag; devotional book and old photos of herself and her loved ones for the The Killer Bride star; tea bags for The Blood Sisters’ lead star; passport, classic iPod, memory cards, sleep mask, and baby pictures of her kids for the Megastar; and adobong mani, chocolate bars, candies, and abaniko for the Maalaala Mo Kaya host.
As these celebrities amazed us with the interesting contents of their trusty and classy bags, it can be noticed that the most common things we could find were makeup kits, toiletries, phones, shades, powerbanks, perfumes, and wallets that contain international currencies, money, religious pictures, rosaries, and different kinds of cards.
What about you, Kapamilya? What are your daily must-haves and the peculiar stuff you always keep in your bag?
