I spy with my red carpet eye a must-have clutch. E! introduced the clutch cam last night at the Emmys and Adrienne C. Moore's clutch reigned supreme. She sported a fabulous minaudiére (don't you just love saying that!!) by Alysse Sterling. It's a cubist pattern clutch glammed with Swarovski crystals. And it's big enough to carry your phone in it (score!). I adore the symmetry and color blocking. It definitely makes a black ensemble pop and is quite the conversation piece. It looks great on Adrienne. I'll make sure for the next red carpet I look out for such a neglected yet necessary accessory like a statement minaudiére (yes, I really do love saying that). We can't forget to show the clutches love.
Seeing this minaudiére started me on a mission to find more. Now of course there is nothing like an Alysse Sterling...but there are some pretty cool styles that give you a red carpet feel on a sidewalk budget.
