Yara Shahidi tends to get stuck on things she loves. Both the phone case and notebook in her 3.1 Phillip Lim bucket bag are covered in Napoleon Bonaparte decals from France. “I’m a history nerd!” explains the star of ABC’s Black-ish.
The 17-year-old, who has her own spinoff titled Grown-ish coming to Freeform in 2018, schools Us Weekly on the rest of her tote.
“I like to keep a snack — usually a nut mix from Trader Joe’s. I opened my bag the other day and there were almonds everywhere. It’s taken a week to get them out.”
In Case Of Emergency
“I always have Bonine in my bag because I get motion sickness.”
Just Roll With It
“Usually, I use a jade roller on my face with some coconut oil or an essential oil. It’s a nice little wake-up call.”
“When I’m at events, my mama will carry ballet flats or sneakers. There’s a pair Tory Burch just came out with. I was at the MTV Movie Awards and I popped those on after.”
What a Gem
“I have different mementos in each bag. I collected Buddha statues when I was little, so sometimes those. Once I was clearing out a bag and a big amethyst fell out. I was like, ‘That’s where it was!’”
