A minaudiere can easily make or break an ensemble look. Here is why actresses should try to keep away from clutches as much as they can...
Why do actresses need a clutch on the red carpet? Especially when they’re accompanied by an entourage. “Honestly, the last couple of red carpet appearances that I have styled, have been sans bag! Most of the time, actresses only bring along their phones and a lipstick,” says stylist Archana Walavalkar.
Clutch cheerleaders would argue, but more often than not, a wrong clutch ends up ruining the whole ensemble and at times, makes the overall look quite busy.
At the Golden Globes, Amal Clooney, Julianne Moore and Jennifer Lopez accessorised their gowns with a statement clutch. However, the actresses who actually turned heads were the ones without it — be it Emma Stone, Heidi Klum or Katie Holmes, to name a few. Perhaps our desi actresses can take a lesson or two from their Hollywood counterparts?
In India, women tend to feel incomplete without a handbag when they’re stepping out. A bag is considered the sign of having arrived in life. To carry or not to carry — that’s quite a dicey scenario. It may work wonderfully at times and totally backfire other times. Of late, actress Huma Qureshi wore her Amit GT gown with a totally unnecessary mini Dior bag. However, Shraddha Kapoor’s pick of a blue clutch worked well with her red Atsu gown. Lisa Haydon clearly loves her minaudières since she carries them on all occasions, of late. Recently, Deepika Padukone carried a clutch with her Jade sari though we weren’t a fan of the look, so the lesser said the better!
Priyanka Chopra almost never carries a clutch at awards shows, “We don’t consider clutches on the red carpet and focus more on make-up, hair and jewellery,” says Priyanka’s stylist Ami Patel.
