On April 28, 2018, Hungarian-American fashion designer Judith Leiber passed away, only hours after her husband of 72 years. Known for her extravagant designs, often taking whimsical shapes like fruits and ice creams, and often decked out in glitter and color, the designer was an icon of our time. From collaborating with Alexander Wang, to retiring at age 77 – Leiber was a true business woman and a visionary.

We’ve rounded up some of the most iconic pieces by Judith Leiber, so take a look below as we remember the legend.


Debuted during New York Fashion Week, Leiber’s french-fry bag from her collaboration with Papyrus quickly became a sparkly Instagram favorite — no KiraKira needed. Whimsical and bold in true Leiber fashion, this bag is one for the books.
Last year, Alexander Wang debuted a collaboration with Judith Leiber, coming in the shape of a money roll covered in 10,000 Swarovski crystals. Worn by celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé, the iconic piece shows Leiber’s unique aesthetic, combined with Alexander Wang’s distinct streetwear approach.
If you, like us, are a sucker for anything customizable, Judith Leiber’s “Hello My Name Is” bag is the ultimate accessory. Coming in the iconic red and white colors, the bag shows the designer’s quirky design approach perfectly, and manages to take an ordinary object and making it ultra-luxe in an instant.
Makeup lovers, this one is for you. Leiber’s classic lipstick bag is the perfect accessory for beauty enthusiasts, capturing a simple lipstick and making it classy by adding (a lot) of bling. The designer’s couture pieces have always been runway favorites, and have been worn by names like Kourtney Kardashian, Scarlett Johansson and Taraji P. Henson.
