In this video for ‘Vogue’, we catch up with British-Asian actress Gemma Chan, the magazine’s cover star for September 2021, as she shares the contents of her Louis Vuitton top-handle.
“I think my bag says that I’m kind of an Asian mum that has to have everything with her for all eventualities,” says Chan, breezily – a trait passed on to her by her own pharmacist mother.
The always-prepared performer’s daily essentials cover hygiene (Wet Ones, hand sanitiser, a face mask and Smints), snacks (Pom-Bears and Jelly Tots), and beauty (a L’Oreal Paris lip crayon in Cinnamon, and the de-puffing gadget her friend Richard Madden introduced her to in an on-set make-up chair).
