Who else to make a fashion statement out of a secret pregnancy but the one and only Grace Kelly. We can thank her for bringing the Hermes Handbag to the public’s eyes when she was spotted using it to cover up a “baby bump”.

It was introduced in the 1930’s and is named after Grace Kelly due to the publicity she helped it gain. Both of Hermes most famous and high demand bags, the “Kelly” bag and the “Constance” bag are both on one-year waiting lists.

After making its debut with Kelly on the cover of Life Magazine, the Sac à dépêches bag was renamed in her honor by either the company or possibly just the public.

This handbag is made by one craftsman in about 18 hours and is made with rich materials from all over the world. It’s no wonder the princess loved it and the public loves it now.
