Being a bookworm never looked so stylish, thanks to stars like Michelle Williams and Kerry Washington stepping out with book cover clutches. The Oscar nominee recently stashed her red carpet essentials in Olympia Le-Tan’s embroidered take on Arthur Miller’s The Misfits, while Kerry Washington carried Kate Spade’s “Make Headlines” clutch purse ($298, at katespade.com) at the Alfre Woodard pre-Oscar dinner co-hosted by Grey Goose. “I’m obsessed with this bag,” Washington told us. “All day people have been like, ‘I’ll hold your magazine.’ I’m like, ‘Look, it’s a bag!’” See more celebrity-loved styles in the gallery now!
