Carrie Underwood, Jill Milan, Accessories
Luxury handbag designer Jill Milan announced that Carrie Underwood carried not one but two of her handbags to the 2012 American Music Awards, where her album "Blown Away" was named Favorite Country Album. Ms. Underwood carried Jill Milan's 450 Sutter Clutch in gold as she arrived on the red carpet with husband Mike Fisher of the National Hockey League's Nashville Predators. She carried the New Canaan Clutch in textured black faux patent to the award ceremony itself.
"Carrie looked wonderful, and we are so pleased to have been part of her ensembles both on the red carpet and at the awards ceremony," said Jill Fraser, co-founder and CEO of Jill Milan. "The sequined gown she paired with our 450 Sutter Clutch made for a great look – it's no wonder she has been recognized on so many best-dressed lists." Best-dressed lists and publishers complimenting Ms. Underwood's fashion choices include People Style Watch, Just Jared, E! Online, the Huffington Post and Billboard.
"Our evening bags continue to be a popular red-carpet choice for celebrities," Fraser said. "The 450 Sutter was also carried by Anne Hathaway to premieres of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' Rachel Nichols carried the 450 Sutter to the premiere of her new movie 'Alex Cross' and Eva Longoria carried our Art Deco Clutch to the 'Desperate Housewives' wrap party."
Jill Milan clutches have caught the eyes of fashion media as well as celebrities in recent months. W Magazine included the Holland Park Clutch in a piece featuring model Linda Evangelista in the September issue, and the 450 Sutter Clutch is highlighted in "Extravagant Evening," a feature in W's September trends supplement. W also highlighted the Art Deco Clutch in its April issue's "Most Wanted" feature. The Zoe Report recently recognized the Newbury Street Portfolio for its ability "to go from the office to cocktail hour."
The 450 Sutter is a cylindrical metal clutch, entirely handmade by an Italian jeweler, and the logo at the top of the clutch functions as the bag's closure. Available in gold or silver, it is part of the Fall/Winter 2012-2013 Collection. The New Canaan Clutch Ms. Underwood carried featured an Italian textured faux patent exterior and fully lined interior.
