Last night was the mother of all awards shows, the 2017 Academy Awards, and suffice it to say there were at least a couple interesting storylines that emerged from the evening. We’re not here to talk about accounting firms, though–our raison d’être is handbags, and there were plenty on last night’s red carpet.

Because the Oscars are the most rigidly formal of the big awards shows, a lot of stars appear in their gowns without bags in front of the cameras, but we still spotted nearly 20 great ones. Check out our favorites below, and if you know the origin of one we weren’t able to identify, let us know in the comments.

Taraji is just oozing modern old Hollywood glamour. The gown has a very classic, simple shape and silhouette, but it packed quite a punch. Everything was perfection from they hair to the accessories.

Robin Roberts clutch was my favorite.

Everyone brought their A game, and made great handbag choices. Ginnifer and her date are too cute!!

That is actually Ginnifer Goodwin’s husband, and co-star, Josh Dallas.

Viola Davis looked amazing, head to toe. Loved her Bally clutch. Also love Ruth Negga’s and Busy Phillips’ bags.

Robin Robert’s clutch is Jimmy Choo. The behind the scenes on GMA on Youtube, she & her stylist named it. 🙂

Are evening bags that cannot accommodate cell phones still selling well?
