Kate Moss + Kate Moss for Longchamp


Supermodel Kate Moss was spotted in Hong Kong attending the new Longchamp store opening ceremony.

Bag: Kate Moss for Longchamp 2011 Spring/Summer Collection

Price: $999.00

Where to Buy: Longchamp Store,

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

Bagopedia's Comment: This is the 3rd collection of "Kate Moss for Longchamp". Obviously the previous two collections did well. Bagopedia has not been a huge fan of any bags from all collections. The design is ordinary and the price is too high. You can get a better deal for a similar look at much lower price.

Maria Sharapova + Cole Haan Viola Satchel


Maria Sharapova celebrates her spring 2011 collection for Cole Haan on Tuesday (March 22) at The Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables, Florida.

Bag: Cole Haan Viola Satchel

Price: $428.00

Where to Buy: colehaan.com, Cole Haan Stores,

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

Bagopedia's Comment: Cole Haan makes nice bags: nice design and good quality with affordable price tags. The details and the executions are also good. However, Bagopedia always feels that Cole Haan bags are heavy- not just the weight and color. There are also something missing. Maybe the impulsion of wanting the bags.

Sarah Jessica Parker + Alexander McQueen Faithful Hobo


Sarah Jessica Parker takes her adorable twins, Tabitha and Marion, for a stroll on Tuesday (March 22) in NY.

Bag: Alexander McQueen 2010 S/S Faithful Medium Hobo

Price: $1,525.00

Where to Buy: eBay,

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

Bagopedia's Comment: This bag is discontinued, but you can find it on eBay. It is expensive because it is a leather bag covered by studs. Bagopedia likes the zip bottom- you can unzip the bag to make a bottom. This bag demonstrates how McQueen's designs work- not only eye-catching, but practical. Bagopedia likes the black version better than this color.

Angelina Jolie + Chloe Aurore Leather Tote


Angelina Jolie carries her adorable 2-year-old daughter Vivienne after landing at the airport on Friday (March 18) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Bag: Chloe Aurore Leather Tote

Price: $1,800.00

Where to Buy: Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue,

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: This bag can't be more Chloe- simple, sleek, and elegant. When the leather is so beautiful, it speaks. Chloe distinguishes its market by using the best quality leather. The color is great and it feels like creme. The beautiful craftsmanship adds interests to this bag. The piano book bags were designed to put piano books. Nowadays people can use them for computers, i-Pads, and files. It is great as a magazine tote too.

However, this bag gets scratched easily. If you don't like your bags get scratched, don't got near it.

Kristien Dunst + Coach Court Bag



Kirsten Dunst runs some errands around a rainy Los Angeles on Monday (March 21).

Bag: Coach Court Bag

Price: $258.00

Where to Buy: Coach.com,

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

Bagopedia's Comment: Even though the bag is not for Bagopedia, we think the tiny bag with a long strap is a very trend look. The Court bag by Coach is one of the original designs with original Coach glove leather. It has a classic look with an affordable price tag. The resale value is also high. If you are done with the look, you can sell it on ebay or consignment shops for few bucks. Just be sure you wear it on one shoulder, not cross the body.

Katherine Heigl + PRADA Straw Tote


Katherine Heigl steps out with her momager, Nancy, on Sunday (March 20) in Miami, Florida.

Bag: PRADA Straw Tote

Price: $880.00

Where to Buy: Saks Fifth Avenue,

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

Bagopedia's Comment: $880.00 for a straw bag? First, Bagopedia is happy that spring has come. It is time for purchasing a straw bag. How do you choose a straw bag? How come the price ranges of straw bags are greater than other bags such as leather?

The price tags on straw bags are very different depending on the finish of the bags. For example, this PRADA bag has a canvas lining, protective metal feet, some inside pockets, removable shoulder strap, then it comes with a PRADA label. It is expensive, but straw bags don't go out of style. You can attach a flower brooch or a silk scarf next year to make it a brand new bag.

Amanda Seyfried + Alexander Wang Kristen Tote



Never one to sit still, Amanda Seyfried was spotted multi-tasking earlier today (March 18) in West Hollywood, CA.

Bag: Alexander Wang Kristen Tote

Price: $825.00

Where to Buy: Barney's New York, Net-A-Porter,

Who carries it: Bagopedia,

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

Bagopedia's Comment: This is the very bag Bagopedia carries lately. Bagopedia had to have it when I first saw it. Bagopedia is happy to see Amanda carrying it so I'd get a chance to blog about it. It is edge, creative, and inspiring. That is what Alexander Wang does. He designs things look complicated yet simple at the same time. Bagopedia loves the way this bag uses straps as fringes. This bag simply makes Bagopedia happy.

Sienna Miller, Uma Thurman + PRADA Madras

Bag: PRADA 2011 S/S Madras Falp Bag

Price: $2,650.00

Where to Buy: prada.com,

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

Bagopedia's Comment: The summer is yet to come. PRADA is taking us directly to the fall season. The photo reminds of Bagopedia that Sienna is carrying a plastic pumpkin for trick-or treating. Nothing really inspires here.

Where to Buy: Bluefly.com

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

Bagopeida's Comment: CHLOE doesn't only make Paddington bags. The bag is simple, but the design is edge. Bagopeida loves the metal details that make the bag interesting. The bag is in lambskin that gives the bag soft and light-weighted.

Bag: Miu Miu Leather Satchel

Price: $1,695.00

Where to Buy: Net-A-Porter,

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

Bagopeida's Comment: "Boyfriend Look" is still the hot trend for this spring. Bagopedia loves this bag for that look. The bag looks like a school bag and has a removable strap. It goes nicely with school look or t-shirt & Jeans look. The gold hardware is also hot. The design is simple yet with some nice details like the buckle and the white stitch. The pastel blue for this spring is so romantic.

Vanessa Hudgens + FENDI Unzipped Zip Messenger



Stepping out for a promotional appearance, Vanessa Hudgens was spotted at “The Early Show” in New York City this morning (March 3).

Bag: Fendi Unzipped Zip It Messenger

Price: $1,295.00

Where to Buy: Saks Fifth Avenue,

Bagopeida's Rating: 1 Bag (Out of 5)

Bagopeida's Comment: This uninteresting and uninspired bag will make your spring days dull. Bagopedia feels even duller to learn that it is a Fendi bag. The unnecessary zippers will just scratch your legs or jeans.
