The handbag brand of summer has officially been declared, or at least as far as it-girl's favorite accessory goes. Jessica Alba and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are addicted to their Cult Gaia handbags and you would be, too, if these geometric statement pieces were yours. A bamboo carryall could be just the thing your vacation rotation is missing (rest assured it'll complement that new swimsuit perfectly).

As you've probably already discerned from RHW's current beach-themed Instagram feed, this model is in full holiday mode. Apparently, her version of a family vacation involves sailing the turquoise waters around Italy while looking devastatingly chic, obviously.

Over the weekend, while Huntington-Whiteley and her longtime partner Jason Statham lounged on their yacht in Capri and went for rides on their jet skis, she proved that her holiday style is pretty much the epitome of every girl's ideal summer wardrobe.

The model sported a sheer, chocolate-colored maxi with white polka dots that doubled as the perfect swimsuit cover-up. It was her handbag, however, that made the look.

Huntington-Whiteley carried Cult Gaia's Ark Fan Bag, a half-circle statement piece made entirely of bamboo with a beaded handle. A collaboration between Brazilian label Adriana Degreas, this bag embodies luxury, but for a surprisingly affordable price.

Cult Gaia's list of celebrity fans is a mile long: Beyoncé, Rihanna, Chrissy Teigen, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, and more. In fact, Jessica Alba just recently showed her support of the brand, too, by posting a picture of her own statement bag on her Instagram Story.

Alba's accessory of choice is a boxy woven bag reminiscent of a picnic basket. Its natural burlap color is so farm chic, while its sharp edges adhere to the season's geometric trend. Her $118 Max Bag features a square handle and twist front loop closure. It's just big enough to carry your essentials.

Stock up on these celebrity-favorite Cult Gaia bags ahead of summer to guarantee you'll be the most stylish at the beach ... or the office, or wherever you may be. Huntington-Whiteley and Alba's favorites, plus a few others, ahead.
