Jennifer Garner + Marcello de Cartier Saddle



Getting a start on her Christmas shopping, Jennifer Garner stopped in at the local Target in Culver City, CA on Monday (November 29).

Bag: Marcello de Cartier Saddle

Price: $1,500 Medium

Where to Buy: Cartier Boutiques,

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia is aware that the "Flight Attendance" look is coming back! The smaller, tidier, and boxier look with wilder shoulder strap. This bag has a beautiful design and also is in a fair price- Cartier name, lamb skin shell, water snake trim and strap, and calf suede lining. 3 sizes, 3 colors, and many different combinations to choose from.

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia likes this bag better than the Rocco Duffle because the bottom studs are easier to be spotted. If you chose to buy "One Bag" this Black Friday, this is the bag. The price is good now.

Nikki Reed + Rebeca Minkoff Biker Flap Clutch



Stepping out for a bout of retail therapy, Nikki Reed was spotted shopping it up in Los Angeles, CA on Wednesday (November 24).

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Biker Flap Clutch

Price: $375.00

Where to Buy: rebeccaminkoff.com

Bagopedia's Rating: 3 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: This bag works in many ways. The jewelry-like chain, studs, and fringe are all popular elements this season. Soft clutches and tiny shoulder bags are also both popular designs especially this bag works for both. However, the 6 little outside snap pockets really take some credit off this bag.

Britney Spears + COACH Julia Leather Small Bag

Britney Spears grabs lunch with her assistant and bodyguard at California Pizza Kitchen on Monday (November 22) in Tarzana, Calif.

Bag: COACH Julia Leather Small Bag

Price: $198.00

Where to Buy: coach.com

Bagopedia's Rating: 1 Star (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia loves the price: $198.00 for a COACH leather bag. It is a deal. However, it is too small as handbag and too big as a coin purse. The length is the same as a long wallet. It fits neither as a shoulder bag nor a elbow bag. Bagopedia will carry it if I were 20 years younger.

Jessica Simpson + PRADA Cavalino Tote



Jessica Simpson leaves JFK airport with her fiance, Eric Johnson, on Sunday (November 21) in New York City.

Bag: PRADA Large Cavalino Tote

Price: $3,100.00

Where to Buy: Barney's New York,

Bagopedia's Rating: 2 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia doesn't give the bag a high review because we predict the "Leopard Phenomenon" is coming to the end. The pattern has been popular for many seasons. Even though this is a beautiful bag to start with, it is not worth spending more than 3K for it. You can't carry it next year.

Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren take their daughter Honor to a park holding a pair of identical coffee mugs on Sunday (November 21) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Bag: Christian Louboutin Marianna Hobo

Price: $1,795.00

Where to Buy: Neiman Marcus,

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: "One of the most beautiful hobo bags". Italian leather combines jewelry-like shoulder chain. It is fashionable yet classic. 3 chains on each handle design makes it easier to carry. Bagopedia loves the extended chains connect to the long leather fringe. The price is high, but you will find you carry this bag so often that is worth spending the money.

Tila Tequila + Louis Vuitton Damier Berkeley


She had a temporary restraining order against paparazzo Garry Sun, and earlier today (November 12) Tila Tequila was granted a permanent one.

Bag: Louis Vuitton Damier Berkeley

Price: $1,620.00

Where to Buy: Louis Vuitton Boutiques,

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia calls this bag the "Stable Speedy". We found the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag too soft. It doesn't have the good support for heavier things. This bag has the extra red suede lining that keeps the bag in a good shape.

Vanessa Hudgens + Alexander Wang Diego Bucket



She’s always on the go, and yesterday (November 14) Vanessa Hudgens was spotted at LAX International Airport.

Bag: Alexander Wang Diego Bucket

Price: $825.00

Where to Buy: Barney's New York,

Who carries it: Kate Bosworth, Stephanie Pratt,

Bagopedia's Rating: 2 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Maybe Bagopedia is not a Hollywood star. Bagopedia doesn't know why every Hollywood star needs an Alexander Wang bag. The bucket bags were originally designed by Louis Vuitton to carry champagnes. They are not easy to access for your daily uses.

Emma Watson + Burberry Large Studded Leather Tote



She’s been working overtime on promoting her new movie “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1” and Emma Watson was spotted out for a visit to “The Late Show with David Letterman” earlier today (November 15).

Bag: Burberry Large Studded Leather Tote

Price: $2,195.00

Where to Buy: burnerry.com

Bagopedia's Rating: 3 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Before seeing its price tag, Bagopedia originally wanted to vote 4 bags for this bag. We think $2,195.00 price tag is too high for a Burberry bag. Beside the price tag, this bag is well made- lots of studs, double zippers, double compartments, lots of pockets, lot of room. You can go for the check canvas version ($1,895.00) for a python ($5,000). If you don't mind the price, the bag for sure will make you rock!

Bag: CHLOE Marcie Horseshoe Satchel

Price: $1,595.00

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: "One of the most beautiful bags this season"- This bag is beautiful from every angle- Beautifully constructed and well balanced with Italian leather to finish. Rich colours for fall/winter- chocolate or black with gold colour hardware. The handles are tall enough to put your coat sleeves through. Plus, CHLOE is a good name for classic bags and beautiful leather.
