As promised, here are some of the bags seen at the Emmy Awards. I am glad to see that they aren’t run of the mill – it looks as though celebs decided to show their independent style in their bags rather than in their gowns. Maybe there was a compromise with their stylists and publicists?
DVF Olivier dress and Romanek Yvette feather clutch
Even I opted for the statement bag and kept the dress simple (I wore this DVF dress). Not knowing the popularity of Romanek at the Emmy’s, it seems like I was on the cutting edge with this Yvette feather trim clutch!! It is way out there and a total editorial piece, completely impractical for everyday life, which is why I chose it! It doubled as a fan, which came in handy during arrivals (the show started at 5pm which meant we were outside in the hot sun at 3pm).
Nicollette Sheridan with the purple/gunmetal Kotur minaudiere and her friend in the black on the far left has the Durga Stingray roll clutch
Nicollette Sheridan had on this amazing Angel Sanchez purple gown, totally fabulous (with Avakian jewels) and she pared it down with a purple/gunmetal KOTUR minaudiere. But by pared down I only mean in size because look at this thing, it is super flashy with the same purple details of her gown. I don’t recognize the girl on the left is but I do recognize the clutch at the Durga stringray roll clutch. This has been seen on everyone and as you know, we are currently giving away the ostrich clutch for our 3rd Birthday Giveaway.
America Ferrera with Anya Hindmarch Maud clutch in gold
America stayed classic and youthful with the Maud clutch. I think it’s time for her to strike out with some big style and throw caution to the wind. She does not need to stay so safe to avoid the “Ugly” label!
Maggie Siff from Mad Men (if you do not watch this, set it up on your Tivo or DVR immediately!), has the black Romanek Celeste. She had on a classic strapless that needed some oomph and the feather clutch was just the thing to do it. I know, nobody knows who she is, honestly, I watch the show and am confused as to who she is but the point is, she knows how to pick a bag and that’s why she is featured here! The real reason really is, I was choosing between this or the Yvette, that I went with, so I like that we were on the same wave length =)
Sandra Oh was seen with the denim “Lizzy” (because it is lizard) from Romanek to the Emmy Nominee Reception on Friday, September 19th. I have this clutch in midnight and is the best go-to clutch for all ocassions. As you can see, it can easily switch gears from day to night. Her publicists say she is using the black Lizzy at the actual Emmy’s but from the pictures I’ve seen, it does not look like it. You can take a look at our red carpet coverage on Couture Snob to see for youself. I just don’t see her as a one trick pony.
