For fashion’s grandest night, the red carpet’s most glammed-up and well-manicured hands grasped show-stopping clutches by Judith Leiber.
Rihanna brought her typical atypical glamour, via a boldly asymmetrical gown and striking red braid, to her glittering “Sevilla” clutch in Jet. Just when you thought Gwyneth Paltrow couldn’t look sparkle any brighter in sequin Stella McCartney, her cut-corner rectangle “Palladium” clutch caught your eye. Ashley Olsen‘s “Capri” Flip Top in Champagne Multi brought needed hard edges to her voluminous sleeves, while Lauren Bush debuted her charity collaboration with Leiber, the “Feed 1000″ clutch to raise money for the FEED Foundation. Finally, the “Guilloche” minaudière in Antique Silver added the final touch of radiance to Ashley Greene‘s brilliant look.
My favorites of the night? Two very different looks on two very different girls. Jessica Stam‘s “Hardy Candy” minaudière was the perfect finishing touch to her ballerina princess look. Mary Kate brought her usual vintage-chic to her “Tessen” in Siam, managing to make a sparkly minaudière look hip and cool. (Jump for celeb images!)
“Feed 1000″ Beaded Linen Clutch at Bergdorf Goodman for $495.
