Invite only: A chic peek at the designer's Beverly Hills setup where the town's top red-carpet stylists go to find the perfect bag and shoes for Hollywood's biggest night.

Oscars week is finally here! Between the gift bag suites and late-night parties, there's no sign of slowing down for Hollywood over these next couple of days. One of the must-sees this week is Jimmy Choo's suite, where the town's power stylists are often spotted looking for chic shoes and clutches for their clients. Here, 10 photos that will make you feel like you were there too.

Grand entrance — metallic and satin platform heels, an enviable pearl-encrusted bag and more welcome VIPs (seen above).

Ankle-strap stilettos in a range of hues — from black to magenta to barely nude.

Strappy sandals and the designer’s sleek and modern top-knot clutches.

Clutch time: An elaborately embellished vermillion 'Cloud' bag (also in black) with floral appliques — part of the 20-piece Memento capsule collection that marks the designer’s 20th anniversary and Hollywood red carpet legacy.

Jimmy Choo's 20th anniversary limited-edition shoe trunk, designed by creative director Sandra Choi. The handmade trunk boasts 20 suede-lined drawers with brass hardware and colorful individual sketches of pieces in the Memento collection (available beginning April 2016 by special order at select Jimmy Choo flagship stores).
