The Golden Globes saw glam gowns, statement accessories (earrings and hair jewels) and showstopping shoes, but did you notice the bevy of brilliant bags on the carpet? We’ve enlisted Tina Craig, co-founder of Snob Essentials — the media evolution of the popular bag blog Bag Snob — to help us pick out Sunday evening’s most memorable clutches. From Amal Clooney‘s evening bag dedicated to “Je Suis Charlie” to Keira Knightley‘s butterfly clutch, check out which arm candy topped Craig’s inaugural top 10 pick for Pret-a-Reporter.
One year after the actress’ debut as fashion’s favorite “it” girl, her awards show ensembles are still on point. Though this lilac Judith Leiber may not be the boldest bag on the carpet, it’s just the right subtle accent for Lupita’s flowing Giambattista Valli petals.??
When you’re wearing a Mary Katrantzou dress (even one as understated as this), accessories must be minimal. Never one to go too simple, though, Washington chose a mosaic-style clutch for added texture.
Gold may be the metallic everyone is after at the Globes, but as one of the night’s big hosts, Fey was happy to go silver.??
Before the night even begins, you’re always guaranteed one thing: Diane Kruger will be on the best-dressed list in the morning. Her shimmering Emilia Wickstead gown and glossy retro waves were complemented perfectly by this mother-of-pearl Emm Kuo.??
This simple, satin clutch has no bells and whistles; they’re all on Miller’s Miu Miu gown! Well played, Sienna, as usual.?? ??
Custom Chanel? What could be more chic? Hands down, this is the most extravagant bag of the evening, and when your competition comprises some of the most sparkling minaudieres out there, that’s saying something.?? ?
If there’s an awards show going on, Edie Parker clutches are sure to be involved. These glittery stripes set off the shine in Louis-Dreyfus’ Grecian Narciso Rodriguez gown beautifully.?? ?
When you have a body like Hayek’s, it’s gotta be pretty challenging to get people to pay attention to your accessories. The solution? An Alexander McQueen knuckleduster!?? ?
While the inspiration for Beckinsale’s Elie Saab look seemed to be the covetable winner’s statuette, I coveted her gorgeous Rauwolf bag even more.?? ?
The first Golden Globes appearance by George Clooney’s superhuman wife did not disappoint. Not everyone can pull off white opera gloves and a matching bag, but remember, this is the woman who wore Oscar de la Renta to her wedding. Class all the way.
