O, Jackie!

Introduced: Late '60s

Seen on: Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Salma Hayek (New), Camilla Belle (New)

Jackie Kennedy was probably the first American first lady to qualify as a style icon. What she wore, American women clamored after. The Gucci Constance handbag she was seen toting in photos from the 1960s became so associated with her style that people looking for the bag in Gucci stores asked simply for "Jackie's bag." Gucci finally renamed the bag "The Jackie."

The Jackie is hard to miss: It's a structured, hobo-style bag in the classic Gucci print, leather-trimmed, with the H clasp atop a slim line of green and red.

The updated, slouchier version is called -- wait for it -- the New Jackie.

Finally, the last bag on our list is really two bags by the same design house. We couldn't choose.
