The word “luxury” is not enough to capture the craftsmanship, class and cache of Hermes.

The legendary French house (pronounced Err-mez) was founded in 1837 by Thierry Hermes as a harness workshop for European noblemen. Nearly two centuries later, the brand is still known for catering to the upper echelon of society, but has expanded to ready-to-wear, fragrance and leather goods. Hermes’ steep price points (think $15,000 or more for a small bag) means only a select few can afford it. Luckily for the following fashionistas — from Hollywood celebs to New York socialites — they are among that number.

See how they wear Hermes, including the label’s legendary Birkin bag.
