Retailing at £945, Rachel Stevens' Saint Laurent tote bag is firmly in the splurge category.

Rachel is mum to 10 year old Amelie and six year old Minnie, who she shares with husband Alex Bourne.

Alex and Rachel grew up together, and she recently told Loose Women how the two reconnected after years apart.
