The talk of the town during this year’s Oscars was not some of the nominees you would assume; instead, there was quite a stir over nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. The strong-willed and highly talented youngster hit the red carpet with a memorable smile and probably the most memorable accessory of the night, her custom puppy purse, designed to look like her dog from home. In fact, if anyone remembers anything accessory-related when it comes to the accessories of the Academy Awards, it is that of Quvenzhane Wallis.
I’ve been a huge fan of Quvenzhane, who happens to be the youngest actress ever to receive a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. She has handled the limelight with grace and composure similar to that of a well-seasoned (and much older) pro. What I also admire is how Quvenzhane has stayed true to herself and hasn’t tried to over-dress. For every red carpet event and appearance, Quvenzhane has carried a Poochie & Co. Puppy Purse, varying from Betsy the Bulldog to Sadie the Cocker Spaniel. While Quvenzhane carried puppy purses to majority of her events this season, the custom version that accompanied her to the Oscars caused quite a stir. In fact the usually $15 price tag skyrocketed to upwards of $300 on eBay after the puppy purse craze began. What I do know is this is the perfect bag to have when you are young, fun, and looking to accessorize in a way that is true to yourself. Bravo Quvenzhane, we are big fans!
