Celeb Must-Have: Bonpoint Silver Leather Ballerina Shoes
Who Has It: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's daughter Suri
Why It's Cool: A glitzy twist on the traditional Mary Jane, these shoes complete Suri's all-dresses-all-the-time style. And they -- or a less-$$$ version -- are a smart buy for the non-rich-and-famous too, since metallic goes with just about everything.
Where to Buy: Bonpoint Silver Leather Ballerina Shoes are $230. For a list of retailers visit:
Tori's Baby Bedding
Celeb Must-Have: Serena & Lily's Harper Crib Bedding
Who Has It: Tori Spelling's daughter Stella
Why It's Cool: Nursery bedding's come a lot way in the sophistication department. Case in point: this vibrant set that Spelling picked up for Stella's hot pink girl-a-thon room. One extra-special touch we love: the fleur-de-lis-like cutouts, which show the more subtle fabric underneath.
Where to Buy: Serena & Lily's Harper 3-Piece Crib Bedding Set costs $559. To buy online, visit:
Jessica's Baby Carrier
Celeb Must-Have: Belle Baby Carrier
Who Has It: Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie
Why It's Cool: When Jolie was photographed carrying one of her twins in the Belle Carrier -- and accessorizing it with a glam Jackie O sunglasses -- babywearing got a whole lot sexier. Alba also uses it to be hands-free when toting daughter Honor around town. We love its dummy-proof design and super-luxe fabric, which gives us a tiny dose of celebrity pampering ourselves.
Where to Buy: The Belle Baby Carrier costs $89.95 to $99.95. For a list of retailers, visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Junk Food 2-in-1 Super Hero T
Who Has It: Cate Blanchett's son Dashiell
Why It's Cool: It's nice to know celeb kids are Star Wars junkies, just like ours. It's also nice to know they shop at cheapo stores like the Gap. This vintage-looking, trendy layered style also comes in other Jedi-inspired designs, as well as one that supports Batman as the candidate.
Where to Buy: The Junk Food 2-in-1 Super Hero T costs $26.50. To buy online visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Max Daniel Baby Rosebuds & Satin Throw
Who Has It: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's daughter Violet
Why It's Cool: Violet is rarely photographed without her super-cuddly, satin-trimmed lovey -- the softest one out there. Not only does she have one in her namesake color, she also has it in eight other shades.
Where to Buy: Max Daniel Baby Rosebuds & Satin Throws are $56 each. For a list of retailers, visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Cariboo Classic Bassinet
Who Has It: New mom Christina Aguilera, who received it as a baby shower gift
Why It's Cool: This chic bassinet will look gorgeous in baby's room or your living room -- and can be re-used as a toy bin once you're out of the bassinet stage. It comes with white fabric that zips off for easy washing -- or mixing and matching. Aguilera received the bright, mod Baby Star's Tag Blue bassinet fabric bag. Bonus: The Cariboo is also eco-friendly, made from sustainable New Zealand Radiata wood.
Where to Buy: The Cariboo Classic Bassinet costs $360. For retailers, go to www.babystar.com.
Baby Star Tag Blue bag, sold separately, is $140. To order online, visit www.cariboo.us.
Keri's Baby Sling
Celeb Must-Have: P-sling
Who Has It: Keri Russell has worn a blue sling from the line's Wave collection; Gwen Stefani and hubby Gavin Rossdale both rock ones in deep black; and Kate Hudson loves hers in Le Noir, whose color fades from black to beige (part of the Avant Gradation collection).
Why It's Cool: These slings are the de rigueur method of toting celebrity tots around town, and its no wonder: the elegant, lightweight fabrics (either cotton or linen) are hand-dyed in Japan, so they're not only functional but couture, too.
Where to Buy: The P-sling starts at $150. For information on how to order, visit:
Angelina's Diaper Bag
Celeb Must-Have: Storksak Emily Diaper Bag
Who Has It: Angelina Jolie totes the basic black version (but we love this pewter metallic).
Why It's Cool: Though this chic purse hardly resembles a diaper bag (so you'll look stylish even when you're sans baby), inside it has everything you need. Along with a padded changing mat, it comes with a removable pouch, tons of compartments (including one for your cell phone), and two insulated side-zip pockets that keep bottles warm or cold for up to five hours. Bonus: Storksak also makes a daddy-friendly "Jamie" messenger bag that Brad Pitt and Matt Damon have been carting around.
Where to Buy: The Storksak Emily bag costs $168. To order online, visit:
Suri's Bathing Suit
Celeb Must-Have: Eberjey Little Mermaid Luna 1 Piece
Who Has It: Petite style-maven Suri Cruise; Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen's daughter Lola
Why It's Cool: Not long after the women's lingerie company expanded into swimwear and a "mini" line for girls 12 months and up, this pink one-piece made a splash -- first on the shores of France, where Cruise went for a swim, and then on the beach in Malibu, where Richards' daughter Lola modeled it. We love its super-fem ruffles and halter -- perfect for a girly-girl.
Where to Buy: The Eberjey Little Mermaid Luna 1 Piece costs $58. To order online, visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Lil' Sugarplum Venice Hair Clips
Who Has It: Jason Priestley's daughter Ava
Why It's Cool: These too-cute crochet flower hairclips come bejeweled with a Swarovski crystal in the center. Unlike a lot of baby barrettes, sturdy Velcro strips underneath grip those wispy baby hairs tight. We love them even more because they're handmade by a stay-at-home mom.
Where to Buy: Lil' Sugarplum Venice Hair Clips cost $8 per clip. To order online, visit:
Halle's Maternity Jeans
Celeb Must-Have: Mama J by J Brand Maternity Jeans
Who Has It: Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, and Melissa Joan Hart
Why It's Cool: This fave celebrity jean brand recently introduced this style, cut higher in the back and low in front with no panel. Posh preggos can wear these sleek dark jeans through the third trimester, thanks to soft elastic panels on either side of the waistband that provide plenty of room for expansion.
Where to Buy: Mama J maternity jeans cost $210 a pair. To order online, visit:
Eden and Savannah's Booties
Celeb Must-Have: UGG Infant's Boo
Who Has It: Marcia Cross's fraternal twin girls, Eden and Savannah; Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's trendy toddler, Kingston
Why It's Cool: Celeb baby toes never get cold with these sheepskin mini-UGGs. Elastic cording up the back makes them easy to slip onto wiggly feet, and an embossed suede bottom help steady newbie walkers.
Where to Buy: UGG Infant's Boo booties cost $50. To order online, visit:
Kingston's Crib Set
Celeb Must-Have: DwellStudio Animals Crib Set
Who Has It: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's son, Kingston
Why It's Cool: When it came time to choose bedding for Kingston's black-and-white nursery in their Los Feliz, California, home, they couldn't settle on just one set -- Gavin chose the more subdued Animals print (pictured) while Gwen picked out the bold Robin Small Dots sheets.
Where to Buy: DwellStudio's Animals Crib Set costs $456. To order online, visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Maclaren Techno XT stroller
Who Has It: Jennifer Garner, Liv Tyler, Melania Trump, Adam Sandler, Michelle Williams, Matthew Broderick
Why It's Cool: Even superstar moms and dads -- who can buy the splurgiest strollers out there -- prefer this basic go-to umbrella stroller. It's super-light, easy to navigate and -- score! -- non-celebs can actually afford it too.
Where to Buy: The Maclaren Techno XT stroller costs $300. For a list of retailers, visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Wry Baby Snapsuits
Who Has It: Kate Winslet
Why It's Cool: These hilarious onesies poke fun at parenthood, like the Wry Baby Instructional series that playfully shows parents the right -- and wrong -- way to play, carry, lift, and nurse baby.
Where to Buy: Wry Baby Snapsuits cost $24 each. To order online, visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Bratt Decor Chelsea Sleigh Crib
Who Has It: Halle Berry; Samantha Harris

Where to Buy: The Bratt Decor Chelsea Sleigh Crib costs $1,452. To order online, visit:
Celeb Must-Have: Nurseryworks Storytime Rocker
Who Has It: Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Garner
Why It's Cool: This mod, almost double-wide rocker comes in a variety of funky colors and will totally look at home in your living room post-nursery. Angelina Jolie received one as a gift when Shiloh was born and Jennifer Garner reportedly used hers on the set of Alias.
Where to Buy: The Nurseryworks Storytime Rocker starts at $800. To order online, visit:
Coco's Bedtime Story
Celeb Must-Have: My Very Own Fairy Tale Personalized Storybook
Who Has It: Brooke Shields and Courteney Cox Arquette
Why It's Cool: In this customized storybook, fairies spell out the name of the girl they've chosen to become their princess -- and what do you know, they picked your kid! The book also comes with a printed dedication, making this a great gift for a birthday or baby shower.
