When the star of USA's Covert Affairs rides the subway in New York City, she totes a satchel by Brazilian designer Osklen (osklen.com). "This soft but hardwearing bag is so big, I have to be careful not to make it too full," Piper Perabo, 33, tells Us Weekly. "Otherwise, I'm forced to get a taxi!"

Read on to see what other essentials this city girl keeps stashed in her giant white woven bag.

"I keep a vile of the Rodin Olio Lusso ($140, oliolusso-shop.com) in my bag and I put it on everything: my face, my hair, my lips. It's really hydrating and smells really good," says Perabo.

"In my Hobo International Doria Wallet ($118, hobobags.com), I carry my library card, a mini map of New York City and my MetroCard. The subway is so much faster and so much cheaper — I don't know why everybody doesn't ride the subway! I get sick in a cab. Plus, you can't read in a cab, but you can read on the subway."

"Sheshido Sun Protection Stick ($26.50, sephora.com) is the best sunblock, because it's waterproof. I'm not in the sun a lot, but I wear it when I go outside. It's good to protect your skin."

"I love to rock the red lip. If you don't have any other makeup on and you put on a red lipstick, you look bright, sexy, pulled together and like you've got something going on. I wear Dior Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Ara Red 999 ($32, sephora.com) at night and Chanel Rouge Coco in Boy ($32, chanel.com) during the day."
