Gwen Stefani, Denise Richards and others tell Us Weekly what they stash in their purse
The Bag: Gucci tote
The Essentials: My Secret Super Brightening Hand Cream, aromatherapy oils and a special something stashed inside by daughter Valentina. "When I go out, she gives me something to remember her. She calls it un recuerdo [a memory] and it changes all the time," Hayek tells Us. "She sneaks it into my bag so it's a surprise!"
