Take a look under the hood.

I LOVE my Kamrette Lyra camera backpack. I get compliments on it all the time. It's super cute AND functional. The backpack straps distribute the weight evenly. The moveable dividers allow you to safely store any gear. There's a pocket for laptops & tablets, and even has a trolley sleeve so it slides over your luggage handle. You could use it for other things like a diaper bag too.
