Kerry Washington Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag

Here’s Kerry Washington, attending a private party in LA with a Prada Face Mural Shoulder Bag, which was one of the most eye-catching pieces from the brand’s Spring 2014 collection. The line has long since sold out, but it was so popular that Prada is doing some more girl clutches and things for the upcoming season, like this close-up version: the Napa Zip Girl Clutch, which is currently available at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,195.

Kerry Washington spotted out and about in Midtown, NYC

Here’s the lovely Kerry Washington, star of ABC’s Scandal and films like Django Unchained, carrying a striking ecru Reed Krakoff Kit XL Clutch as she strolls around NYC. Kerry looks so polished in this pic – note how that oversized clutch really ups the ante of a business-casual day look.

2013 Screen Actors Guild Clutches

So here’s something interesting: At the Golden Globe Awards two weeks ago, our expert analysis (that would be me, squinting at paparazzi photos for several hours) found that Roger Vivier’s evening bags won the day as handbag of choice for the widest variety of starlets.

The Handbags of the 2013 Golden Globes

When it comes to award shows, the gowns get all the televised glory. The bags that are carried with them are generally tiny, of course, and perhaps the public at large isn’t as obsessed with the details of a tiny evening bag as we are.
