Karla Souza: What’s In My Bag?

Karla Souza’s Dolce & Gabbana carryall is like a crime scene. “I have a lot of candy wrappers and trash that makes it look like a mess,” admits the star of the ABC drama How to Get Away With Murder. “It’s embarrassing!” The Mexico City native, 29, lets Us Weekly investigate her leopard-print purse. Take a peek at what’s inside!

Way With Words

“My husband [Marshall Trenkmann] leaves me articles he wants me to read about something we were talking about, like Latino culture. Or he’ll drop a little note in my bag saying, ‘I hope your day goes well! I love you.’ It’s super sweet!”

Saving Face

“I have a cherry-red L’Oréal lip crayon. I use it on my lips, cheeks, and eyes. When I look in the mirror and I’m like, ‘Oh no!’ I use it to give me a little bit of life.”

Sweats Appeal

“In case I can go do hot yoga at any random time during the day, I keep a pair of really short shorts and a sports top.”

Tuning In

“I love listening to podcasts on my iPhone 6 — everything from stuff I missed at church on Sunday to [Murder producer] Betsy Beers’ podcast about ShondaLand.”

On Her Mark

“I always have my How to Get Away With Murder script. I can’t read it on an iPad — I have to have it in my hands. Wherever I am, I’ll take out a highlighter to learn my lines.”

Also in Souza’s bag: a banana, a bag of almonds, Godiva salted caramel squares, Altoids, a little red bound journal, gel pens, a book (Timothy Keller’s Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope That Matters), a CVS card, a health insurance card, pesos and dollar bills, a dark blue Michael Kors wallet, an iPhone charger, headphones, Ray-Ban sunglasses, a BlenderBottle with a protein shake in it, keys, Birkenstock sandals, Colgate Optic White toothpaste, and a toothbrush.
