SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Actress Eva Longoria carried a handbag from Jill Milan, a provider of designer Italian handbags, to Monday’s presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C., the luxury fashion brand announced today. Ms. Longoria carried Jill Milan’s Pacific Heights Clutch and wore a belted dark rose overcoat as she attended President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.
“Eva looked fabulous at the inauguration with the Pacific Heights Clutch,” said Jill Fraser, co-founder and CEO of Jill Milan. “The Pacific Heights and her rose-colored coat made for a great outfit.”
Ms. Longoria was one of the earliest Hollywood celebrities to carry Jill Milan, as she carried the Art Deco Clutch to the “Desperate Housewives” wrap party last year.
Jill Milan has been the choice of a number of other celebrities for recent red-carpet appearances. Actress Jennifer Lawrence carried the Holland Park Clutch and the Art Deco Clutch to two events leading up to this month’s Golden Globe Awards. Actress Kerry Washington carried Jill Milan’s Holland Park clutch for Berlin and London premieres of her latest film “Django Unchained.” Anne Hathaway carried Jill Milan’s Art Deco, 450 Sutter and Holland Park clutches for premieres of her new film “Les Miserables,” and last summer she carried Jill Milan to New York and London premieres of her film “The Dark Knight Rises.” Singer Carrie Underwood carried the Jill Milan Holland Park Clutch to the CMT Artists of the Year awards in December and in November attended the American Music Awards carrying the 450 Sutter Clutch. Actress Rachel Nichols carried the 450 Sutter to the premiere of her movie “Alex Cross,” and Isla Fisher, who will appear in the upcoming film "The Great Gatsby," carried the Jill Milan Art Deco Clutch to the New York premiere of her film "Rise of the Guardians.” Other Hollywood personalities who wear Jill Milan include actress Fiona Gubelmann of television’s “Wilfred” and Countess Michelle Czernin von Chudenitz, who both are seen frequently in red carpet appearances carrying evening clutches from Jill Milan.
