Hottest Bags Carried by the Hottest Stars

Sigh ... we all want to carry the hottest and latest Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dolce, and Fendi. Why? Our beloved Hollywood Divas know just what to carry when, with a bag for every season, occasion, and outfit. So how is a girl to keep up?

We can check out the LV bags from afar, but a top of the line Louis Vuitton goes for as much as your car, in all likelihood. Only the most privileged - or obsessed - get to carry these babies, such as the Neo Deuville, which comes in at $22,000! Hard to believe that some of these stars let their little dogs inside these bags!

Some of the stars that rate Louis Vuitton as their number one fave are Jessica Simpson, Usher (yes, Usher!), Uma Thurman, Sharon Stone, Sarah Jessica Parker and Paris Hilton. Of course, these ladies and men have more than one bag and probably more than one Louie, but this King of Handbags remains their first love.

Another biggie in the handbag industry is Prada ... and especially the Gauffre Antik bag. This is almost a constant on the arm of Beyonce and Jess's little sister Ashlee. Newly Americanized Posh Spice (a/k/a Victoria Beckham) is also a big fan. The bag is a tote, and a large one at that, so at least it's functional if costly.

And you thought Jimmy Choo made shoes? Well, he does, and some beautiful ones at that. Apparently, he is making a big splash in the handbag arena as well with stars such as Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry and Eva Mendes. Perhaps this is the bag for the real star as opposed to starlet, the true actress? The Mahala by Jimmy Choo is quite classy, and every bit as designer as the shoe line.

Some stars are designing their own bags now, such as Fergie and Jessica Simpson... but the bags are geared more toward us common folk and cannot compete with what these stars themselves are actually wearing!

Just catching on here in the United States but already very popular in Europe is the line by Gerard Darel. Eva Longoria, Hayden Panettiere and Katherine Heigl have all recently been seen with these bags, Angelina Jolie, too, loves the sweater knit satchel by Gerard Darel, which is a pretty casual bag and available at Neiman Marcus, surprisingly inexpensive at around $400.

Also casual and very recently spotted is the Andrea Brueckner Tierney City bag, as seen being carried by the beautiful Jessica Alba walking down the street. As the name implies, however casual, this bag is much more chic and citified than the above mentioned sweater bag. It is a fairly large bag, and can be carried on the shoulder or by hand. It runs around $700.

Angelina Jolie also seems to like the cool concept of Mommy & Me Bags, although Vanentino seems to have made a miniature version of the Valentino Braided Leather Shoulder Bag just for Zahara Jolie-Pitt! The mother and daughter were seen sporting identical white Valentino bags. Jennifer Garner has also been seen wearing the braided leather bag in patent red, but her little one Violet was not seen with a matching bag. The adult version runs about $1700. We have no idea what the two-year-old version costs, or whether Zahara owns the only one on the market!

Bags change with the seasons for us commoners, and it's no different for the stars that we seen on the big screen. However, they have the means to change bags every time they change outfits. This fall, you will see lots of saddle bags - the kind you carry, obviously, as you won't see any "saddlebags" on the stars themselves! Saddle bags are worn across the body and have a very western look to them. You'll see these paired with cowboy boots.

Another hot fall trend are bags with top handles. These bags are sophisticated, ladylike, and will be seen more with classic threads. Not to be outdone by these upscale bags, the fall also offers chain-handle bags this season which are more casual.

As for the material, crocodile and fur and shearing are in this season. Think Uggs. Quilted leather and velvet are also in. Watch for these styles on our favorite stars!
