It’s rare to see stars carrying affordable bags on the red carpet.
But for Sunday’s Golden Globes, Selena Gomez forwent four-figure purses for something on the more budget-friendly side: JW Pei’s Gabbi Crystal Handbag ($129).
The dazzling design rings in at far less than her asymmetrical Armani Privé dress, not to mention the multiple diamond bracelets the star stacked on each arm.
And Gomez is far from the only celeb obsessed with the croissant-shaped handbag, as stars like Emily Ratajkowski, Megan Fox and Gigi Hadid have all carried the non-bedazzled version of the vegan leather Gabbi Bag ($80) over the years.
Page Six Style Editor Elana Fishman is equally captivated by the original carryall; when she put it to the test in 2021, she dubbed it “a breeze to dress up and down.”

While Gomez opted to match the red carpet with her ruby-hued handbag, the design also comes in shimmering shades of black, silver and green — not to mention several faux fur-covered options.
The “Only Murders in the Building” star completed her look for the big night with a swept-up hairstyle and a manicure featuring Essie’s Licorice Nail Polish (
$10, $8) and Gel-Setter Top Coat ($11).
“Selena’s custom dress is such an amazing red with black accents, and we felt the nails should play off that,” manicurist Tom Bachik said in a press release.

In addition to her hot handbag, Gomez also had boyfriend Benny Blanco on her arm after the show; she shared an Instagram Story snap kissing the music producer backstage following her Best Actress loss.
She also joined BFF Taylor Swift during the ceremony, where the pair seemingly had an animated gossip session that sent social media into a frenzy.
