Where to Buy the Exact Party Clutches the Stars Are Carrying
In the red carpet fashion game, clutches are under appreciated players. Just think of the last live coverage you watched: When did the stars, if ever, first mention the delicate minaudiere in their hands? Our guess is somewhere after a gushy dress shout out, shoe close up, and conversation about the million dollar jewelry they have on loan...but before looking inside the purse to remember its brand.
Upon closer inspection, however, these baby bags are rarely forgettable. Since the start of 2017 alone, we’ve already spotted plenty worth considering for your next big event, be it a black tie wedding or a fun night on the town. Keep scrolling for our top 10 favorites to date and, of course, exactly where to buy each.
