Red Carpet Roundup: Unique Clutches at the 2013 Golden Globes

Jan 16 2013 • by Deanna

We’ve seen a myriad of clutches in various shapes, sizes and styles at the recently concluded 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California. But what caught our fancy were the uniquely designed clutches held by various stars. Some may be iconic styles while a few are refreshingly different which added interest on the red carpet especially in an event of this caliber.

Here’s a quick roundup of the eye-catching clutches we found on the red (and black) carpet:

Jessica Alba

In fine feather. Aside from the stunning 5.8 million Harry Winston diamond necklace Jessica Alba wore, the style-savvy actress wowed us with her statement-making feathery orange Roger Vivier Poodle clutch. Her strapless melon silk faille trumpet gown from Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection hugged her curves and made her stand out from a sea of white and black gowns.

Nicole Richie

Fringe benefits. Socialite-fashion designer Nicole Richie made a stunning appearance at the red carpet wearing a blue Naeem Khan gown paired with Brian Atwood shoes. Her gunmetal fringed House of Harlow 1960 Jude Snake clutch added a touch of whimsy to her elegant sequined gown. Grab it at Singer22 for $275.

Jodie Foster

Shell shock. Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement awardee Jodie Foster not only delivered a stirring speech as she accepted her award, she also delivered on the red carpet with her heavily beaded Armani Prive dress which she paired with a shell-shaped Judith Leiber Concha Large Ribbed Half-Oval Minaudiere. This clutch can be purchased at Neiman Marcus and retails for $2,695.

Alyssa Milano

Clutch purr-fection. Not a fan of Alyssa Milano‘s mustard yellow Ports 1961 gown but her catty black leather Thalé Blanc Adrianne clutch caught our eye. It features a gold cheetah accent and topaz Swarovski crystals. We’d like to get our claws, er, hands on this beauty. It’s available at the Thalé Blanc site for $1,815.

Hayden Panettiere

In the pink. Hayden Panettiere makes it on our unique clutch list with her bright pink Kotur Espey Minaudiere with snakeskin print. The Nashville star’s hard box clutched matched her baby pink Roberto Cavalli mermaid gown which fit her rather nicely. Grab it now at Neiman Marcus for $560.

Helen and Helena

A tale of two Helens. Mrs. Malfoy of Harry Potter fame Helen McCrory (seen with husband and Best Actor winner for Homeland Damien Lewis) loves her Lulu Guiness Lips clutch in silver. Fellow British actress Helena Bonham Carter was also spotted with a red perspex version of the whimsical clutch. Check out the Glittery Lips Perspex Clutch and Red Perspex Lips Clutch at LUISAVIAROMA which retail at $403 each.
