Bagging it like these women!
When it comes to fashion, no one can beat the Bollywood brigade.
While there are some trends that only they can carry off -- bandage dresses, anyone? -- there are some that we ordinary mortals can easily take a leaf from. Like these oversize tote bags.
Every celeb worth her salt doesn't leave home without one, even if all the bag houses is a pair of sunglasses, cell phone, keys and lip balm.
So who wins the bag test and who doesn't? Let's have a look.
Is that a Louis Vuitton bag we see Lara carrying? With so many realistic fakes flooding the market, it's hard to tell.
But then again, we don't think Lara would go for a fake. Fake or real, we think she looks uber cool.

The south star, who made her Bollywood entry with Khatta Meetha, chose a Louis Vuitton bag as well, for a night on the town.
Okay, so this is not a tote bag. But neither is it a clutch -- it's way too big to pass off as one. But Shilpa being the fashionista she is, makes the look work.

This stylish diva sure knows how to work the casual chic look. She also knows how to mix her colours.

Everything about Twinkle's outfit screams runway chic except for the leopard print tote, which thankfully doesn't clash with the black jacket, big bow, dark blue denims and nude pumps.

This fashionable clothes horse has an instinctive way with clothes and accessories.
However, in this case, we think an elegant clutch would have completed the rather retro ensemble better that the beige tote.

It's no secret that this Aisha star loves her clothes and makeup. But maybe she should take a closer look at the bags she carries.
Can't say we're thrilled about this black number. For one, the strap is too long.

We love everything about Bipasha's look except her pose.
What's she carrying in that cool bag of hers? Rocks?

What's wrong with this picture? Well, everything!
Vidya ruins a perfectly stylish bag by teaming it with the pastel blouse and tacky shoes. Someone direct her to a stylist, pronto!
