Selena Gomez grew up as a child actor on the Disney channel, but let it be known that she was not the kind that carried around purses that cost more than most adults' purses.

During yesterday's Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week, Yahoo Style asked her whether she'd owned a purse from the brand as a tween. "No way!" she replied. "I wasn't allowed to buy a designer bag when I was a kid. I never even asked."

But as a dutiful Louis Vuitton ambassador, she did reveal the very first item she purchased. "The first thing I owned from Louis Vuitton was a monogram laptop case I bought myself," she said. "I was in Budapest shooting a movie called Monte Carlo. I was 15, I think? And I loved it. I thought it was so cool. I still do." Same.
