It is no secret that Megastar Sharon Cuneta was born into privilege. She is one few celebrities who had been accustomed to luxuries way before they made it to the limelight. With her success in show biz, she has all the more granted herself a higher level of extravagance, and her collection of bags is to die for.

Through a series of recent Instagram posts, the Megastar let the public in on her flashy bag collection. Because she “couldn’t think of anything–at least anything new to post–so I’m showing you my ‘favoritest’ bag of the moment.”


Though the purple animal skin bag she posted very much resembles that of a very similar luxury brand, she quickly clarified that “no, it is not a Birkin or a Kelly or anything else Hermés.”


As “everyone seems to be what I call ‘Hermésing’ so let’s let them keep doing that.”

Then she finally spilled the beans: “This one is a Louis Vuitton alligator (or is it a croc? Not that it makes any difference to me!)–and it is in a perfect purple shade for a bag! It’s not as heavy as a Birkin; just the right weight empty or full. Two handles and a dainty but strong shoulder strap! I stuff it. It has to work hard. Well, it should be able to take all my stuff–cost me a concert and a half’s talent fees plus three of my toes and one whole leg!”

She also said that such luxury bags already count as heirloom items and “the best bags will go to the best daughters (or granddaughters!)! But my girls are the best so…you have no idea what my bag collection looks like so let’s just say they’ll be really happy!”

In the end, she clarified that she only goes public about her stuff simply because she’s happy with them. Her lifestyle has been this way since and “I don’t want to be misinterpreted as making yabang kasi (boasting). This is just my life guys – I think that’s no secret naman. Born deez wey eh. And my mom was ELAINE. Need I say more? Hahaha! Just lemme know, ‘kay? Cos I might be feeling a bit uncomfortable and I won’t do it if people take it the wrong way. I do looove my stuff. That’s all.”

In another post, she shouted out to the “bagaholics,” this time posting a pink crocodile Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) tote. She also gave credit to her “personal shopper – who goes around Europe and the U.S. a few times each year to shop for me and her other clients.”


As most luxury brands are questioned for using animal skins for their hardware, Cuneta said, “I am an animal lover. But I cannot stand reptiles (but I can stand some snakes), and crocs and gators have made meals out of people, so this is my little way of avenging my fellow human beings! I WEAR the skin of the darn monsters. I think it is a Cabas.”

She also mentioned one that “almost cost me one of my own precious children and her father but I bought it anyway and chose the cash option instead.”

Lastly, she thanked her “make-up artist and friend Peachy, whose memory of things I buy for myself is photographic,” for preventing her from buying “irresponsibly.”

In past interviews, Cuneta asserted that she had long been a certified billionaire. Yet in some past posts, she described herself as the “poorest, most cash-strapped billionaire you know” after some problems with her investments.  /ra
