Why is it that no matter how long we've been planning a holiday we're still up until silly o' clock the night before reshuffling our suitcases? Whether you're super efficient or totally last minute dot com, packing luggage is a nightmare. Are we taking too little? Are we taking too much? What if it rains? Will we need a first aid kit? What if the sun cream leaks? And before you know it you’re sitting on a Samsonite at 2am trying to do up the bloody zip.
So it's reassuring to know that A-list stars do their own packing too - and some of them are even pretty messy! Take Poppy Delevingne for instance; whose hotel room during her stay at Coachella earlier this year looked like it needed a visit from British nanny extraordinaire Mary Poppins. We're pretty sure a click of the fingers and some good old-fashioned elbow grease was required to sort out what the supermodel referred to as a "Festival pig sty".
Fellow Coachella Queens Whitney Port and Paris Hilton were slightly more organised, although they did go overboard on the accessories. Former 'The City' star Whitney sheepishly revealed her festival shoe collection with the caption "Packing for #coachella. Oy. Wish I could be more low maintenance!" while Paris, who we all know loves bling, confessed "Love all my #Coachella jewels and accessories. So many cute things to choose from".
Ahead of a recent trip to China with her husband David, Victoria Beckham shared her packing essentials with fans including a selection of clutches, vertiginous black heels and pieces from her own collections.
Rosie Huntington Whiteley provided perhaps the prettiest display of packing inspiration in a recent Instagram photo, which featured pieces from some of her favourite designers. She tweeted, "Constantly packing... My essentials @aninebing @ninaricci @chanel @isabelmarant @balmainparis @charlotte_olympia @LANVINofficial @WorldMcQueen @marksandspencer #rosieforautograph #HERMES #vintage @elizandjames".
Fingers crossed our baggage is "accidentally" swapped with hers!
