Celebs Converge on Barneys for Holiday Shopping

Jennifer Lopez, Audrina Patridge, and former Gossip Girl actress Michelle Trachtenberg have all been spotted ringing in the holiday cheer (and making cash registers ring) at Barneys in Beverly Hills this Christmas season.

Lopez, 39, also hit Saks Fifth Avenue, while Patridge included nearby Niketown among her stops.

Jennifer was perhaps using retail therapy to dispel recent rumors of marital trouble, despite a hot married date at Luau the other night.

Husband Marc Anthony, 40, reportedly wears the pants in the family, but it looks like J.Lo has snuck the credit cards out of those trousers.

Audrina Patridge, 23, was probably not shopping for gifts to put under Hills co-stars Lauren Conrad and Justin Bobby’s trees. Although it appears that the furor over rumors that LC hooked up with Patridge’s go-to guy has been resolved, Patridge still remarked that LC acted like “a child” when confronted.

As for 23-year-old Michelle Trachtenberg, she better be buying some sort of gift for television genius creator/writer Joss Whedon. He’s the one who gave her the last full-time job she ever had, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Michelle was off Gossip Girl faster than you can say, “Georgina Sparks was sent to the loony bin.” A little strategic shopping might have extended that run.
