Fancy Bags In The Rain

Here in "sunny California" the Golden Globes show must go on, even when it starts to rain. I thought it would be fun to review some of the prettiest bags of the bunch.

I really liked Ginnifer Goodwin's look because she wore something that was perfect for her age and yet still formal. The Leiber clutch sparkled but was subtle rather than glitzy and didn't detract from all the pretty detailing of the Vionet dress. I think at these kinds of occasions, it's always important that fashion showcases the star, and it's nice if the bag can compliment by adding quiet beauty, rather than competing for attention.

I know, you can barely decipher the Raven Kauffman clutch Diane Kruger is carrying, but that's kind of the point--why would you want to detract from this gorgeous Christain Lacroix Haute Couture gown?

Heidi Klum has amazing relationships with lots of the world's top designers and always shows up wearing something original. Since there's a lot going on with her romantic Roberto Cavalli gown and her main accessory, Seal, she keeps it simple with a shimmering soft clutch by Christian Louboutin.

I like the simplicity of Kristin Bell's look--again a small sparkly Leiber clutch to accent the more complicated Jasmine de Milo strapless cocktail dress.

So we'll leave off with my favorite accessory and I'm not talking about Elisabetta Canali's Ferragamo clutch...

    I loved Ginnifer Goodwin. She looked youthful, modern and absolutely beautiful. Flawless from head to toe. That shade of blue is divine on her.

    Great post, Mary Jo.
