Kerry Washington, Christina Hendricks, Zooey Deschanel and Julia Louis-Dreyfus had one thing in common tonight: They all carried Edie Parker clutches. While we spotted most of these pieces on the red carpet — the brand’s signature acrylic style is hard to miss — we couldn’t take our eyes off the stage when Louis-Dreyfus accepted her Best Actress in a Comedy award with her Veep co-star Tony Hale snapping into character as her loyal, bag-carrying assistant Gary by holding her clutch on stage. The design you spotted on stage is the brand’s Jean style, which all four stars wore in varying sizes and colors. Why were they such a hit? Designer Brett Heyman credits their functionality. “Our unique, handmade clutches complement the gorgeous red carpet dresses without overpowering them,” said Heyman, the former Director of Public Relations for Gucci who launched her handbag line in 2010. “They are practical and roomy, but not cumbersome. But most importantly, the clutches look incredibly chic and cool! Like a piece of jewelry or wearable art.” Similar pieces are available for $995 and more at bergdorfgoodman.com.
