In the first Sex and the City movie there was the pivotal moment where Lily, Charlotte’s daughter, takes Big’s call on Carrie’s cell phone and then places the phone in her Judith Leiber cupcake clutch. Soon after it is evident that Big has cold feet and can not get out of his car to go through with the wedding. The Judith Leiber Cupcake Clutch was not only the cutest accessory we have ever seen on a flower girl but also was part of the chain of events that lead to Carrie being stood up at the altar.

But you all knew that, and you all knew that the infamous cupcake clutch was a Judith Leiber creation. Of course Charlotte’s daughter would carry that to a wedding. And I don’t care what dream world Sex and the City is in, that clutch is amazing. And it was amazing on Lily. And it is still amazing to this day. All kinds of amazing I tell you!

With Sex and the City 2 being released in theaters soon, I am getting a little nostalgic about the first movie and overly excited about the sequel. Of course the plot will bring us twists and turns (hello! Aiden showing up in Dubai anyone?!) but also the fashion will be something everyone will have their eye on. We will be looking at the fashion, namely the accessories. Because really, how could we not?

Buy the Judith Leiber Cupcake clutch via Net a Porter for $4,295.

    I hope the glue is strong enough, hate to see a 5k clutch losing beads. Maybe I am worrying too much.

  • Daniella

    I love this clutch it literally looks delicious.

    At the begining of the first movie, when Carrie and Big were viewing apartments Carrie was carrying a Eiffel Tower like clutch/bag was that Judith Leiber as well?

    • Karin bag4bag

      The Eiffel tower bag was a Timmy Woods creation.

  • swags

    Darling picture. The girl and cupcake look adorable. I would think there would be a more reasonably priced cupcake for little princesses however. lol

  • luvhautecouture

    Remember that episode where Big got Carrie a dove shaped Judith Leiber clutch and she hated it? LOL

    • Beth S.

      It was a dove? I thought it was a duck. It was pretty fugly. LOL

      • Aliyah Fisher

        I bought that for my daughters fight over it everyday the joy of have 2 set of twin girls

  • BLynnT

    Perfect bag for a girl… except for the nearly $5K price tag! (fb)

  • Tiff Chao

    What a creative clutch. The beads on it look amazing. I think I would just have it as an ornament since it’s too pretty to carry.

  • Celeste

    I love this thing so much. Loved it as soon as I saw it. I love cupcakes AND sparkly things! Not sure how useful it is for non-New York high-falootin’ living but I’d take it anyway! :)

  • Stacy

    Counting down the days for SATC 2!! I could never let a child have a $5000 clutch. I can’t even afford a $5000 bag for myself, much less a child. :`(

  • faith24

    gorgeous piece – i always think of Leiber accessories as works of art rather than clutches

  • Amy Beth

    Soooo cute. Definitely too expensive for a little girl, but I love it!

  • Amy Beth


  • Bavleen

    Such an adorable bag and an even more adorable girl!! (fb)

  • dguerrero3

    LOVE the cupcake clutch, but not the price….(fb)

  • Vicki Page-Clark

    luvhautecouture – yep, remember that! It’s ‘The Caste System’ (series 2)….hilarious :-)
    Loads more info here:
    LOVING some of those other crystal bags (the polar bear, the leopard – lol), but the cupcake is cute too (not my taste – waaaaay too sugary sweet – perfect for a flower girl if it wasn’t insanely priced!)
    Interesting that the cupcake bag in the movie was custom made, as otherwise it wouldn’t have held Carrie’s phone! (fb)

  • Karin bag4bag

    I can’t wait for the movie !!! LOVE Judith Leiber designs – don’t think I will ever be able to afford one but I like checking out her new designs… There is a beautiful tiger design I have seen on site and I like the dolphin.
    Honestly I don’t know if I could ever take a ‘dolphin’ purse out with me but it is just the sheer opulence and over the top sparkle that I love !!!

  • ballenina

    I love this clutch, if i have to be a little girl to carry this then LET IT BE!

  • bunnyb

    I’m excited for SATC2!!!! And I love that cupcake clutch. Too cute!

  • gertrude

    very fab, nice to stare at, but not really price-friendly, sorry!!!

  • danamite

    cant’ wait for the new movie!!! (fb)

  • Jane

    I would love to be that little girl growing up in a world wear the best bags and clothes are always at your finger tips. I thought she was adorable and of course that bag was adorable. I am so excited for the new movie. (fb)

  • Leslie

    I didn’t even notice it when i saw the movie! I am surprised, lol really expensive purse for a little girl. I am jealous!

  • mochababe73

    I have always loved the Cupcake clutch. It’s so cute and so me.
    Tried as I might, I coudn’t get into the show. Watched it a couple of times, but it just wasn’t something that I watched. However, I had to see the movie because it was $4.99 at Marshall’s. So, if I didn’t like it, I would have only lost 5 bucks.

    I must say I LOVED the movie and can’t wait for the sequel.

    5 gran for a cupcake cluth?! so much..

  • cupcakeftw

    That little girl is absolutely adorable.
    In fact, she’s one of the cutest kids I’ve ever seen!
    I even think she’s cuter than the cupcake clutch.

  • marian t

    almost 5g for a cupcake purse i can’t eat;-)
    the kiddie is cute though.

  • Chris

    Indeed a cute accessory. Though I do not know who in their right mind would give a a $ 5000 handbag to the flower girl.

    Other than that, I thought the girl had zero presence on screen. Sorry.
    However, I will look forward to your fashion reviews. Like every woman, I look forward to the film (though the first one was just terrible, the series was so much better. But hey, the fashion and the friendship among the girls made me go and watch it and of course I will watch the second movie, too).

    I started to think that you should have posted “spoiler alert” but really, who here hasn’t seen the SATC movie. :)

  • sofia nolan

    She was so adorable and so fit for this role. Her little purse is so fabulous, makes me wonder if I should get one for my little girl. For special occasions of course :)

  • ashley

    oh cmon people, it’s a movie, anything can happen, stop whining about an 8 year old having a $5000 clutch.

  • justanotherpurselover

    it was such a cute bag- i got something similar from a company in the UK called the artful handbag i went a bit crazy with the crystal clutches after that movie! cant wait for number 2….!

    • karla

    crazy price for such a little bag (ipad)

    • Zenwitch

      Not really. I’ve been a fan for decades. It’s like any other collectible. They are exquisite one-of-a-kind pieces of art. I have a few vintage pieces and I love love love checking out her latest editions whenever I get a chance. Not for everyone.

  • Tracey G

    this little girl is SO cute (ipad)

  • Tracey G

    sigh, i miss this show! (ipad)

  • Maggie

    I NEED this! I have been on the hunt for one ever since I saw this but with no avail… (ipad)

  • JYL

    This purse was specially made to fit the phone; the versions for sale are smaller. And if it’s cute for a 5-year old, is it really cute for a woman? In general, Judith Leiber purses are just gawdy and awful for anyone over 10. Add in that they’re thousands of dollars? People need to find a better outlet for their fortunes.
