Christian Dior's "Lady Dior" is a mainstay in the designer bag collection of local celebrities and Hollywood A-listers.

A timeless and versatile bag, Lady Dior made its first appearance in September 1995.

Bernadette Chirac, the First Lady of France at that time, asked the French luxury fashion house for a unique bag she can give to Princess Diana as a gift.

According to Forbes.com, the bag initially had the code name "Chouchou," and was later baptized as Lady Dior after being spotted on the Princess of Wales.

The bag was made available for the public in February 1996 and immediately sold out upon its release.

The Lady Dior bag was originally made of leather and featured the brand's signature design pattern called Cannage, which resembles a woven rattan.

Through the years, the French luxury fashion house used different materials—from exotic skins to nylon and even canvas.

According to SpottedFashion.com, the price of a Lady Dior bag ranges from USD2,950 (around PHP142,000) to USD4,600 (around PHP221,000) or even higher depending on the materials used.

Here are some of the celebrities who have a Lady Dior in their collection of designer bags.

KRIS BERNAL

Kris Bernal owns not one but three Lady Dior bags in different sizes. In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) via e-mail on Thursday, January 14, 2021, Kris said the bag is very functional.

The actress said, "I’ve invested in a few designer bags over the years. For me, a designer bag truly makes an outfit. I stick to more basic clothing with fewer accessories and it’s my designer bags that usually put spice to my simple style."

She continued, "I love Lady Dior because it’s classy and chic. It’s timeless yet modern. The size range is functional as it can hold my essentials...

"What I love about the bag is its versatility. It can be an evening bag with its handle, or [you can] pair it with your distressed jeans as it has removable shoulder straps. I use it when I don’t have to bring so much stuff. It’s my hangout bag."
