Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced actress Hailee Steinfeld carried the luxury brand’s Holland Park Clutch to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party following the 85th Academy Awards ceremony Sunday. Ms. Steinfeld’s performance in the film “True Grit” earned her a nomination in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role at the 83rd Academy Awards.
“Our Holland Park Clutch was part of a great ensemble Hailee wore for the Vanity Fair party,” said Jill Fraser, co-founder and CEO of Jill Milan. “We are happy she chose to wear Jill Milan for such a celebrated occasion.” The event was the 20th anniversary of Vanity Fair’s Oscar party, generally regarded as the standard for events surrounding the Academy Awards.
Sunday’s Academy Award recipients included two celebrities who have carried Jill Milan on the red carpet. Anne Hathaway, winner in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role category for her performance in “Les Miserables,” carried the Chelsea Evening Clutch to January’s National Board of Review awards, and the Art Deco, 450 Sutter and Holland Park clutches for the “Les Miserables” world premiere and screenings in New York and London. She previously carried Jill Milan’s 450 Sutter clutch to the New York and London premieres of her film “The Dark Knight Rises.” Jennifer Lawrence, winner in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role category for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook,” carried the Holland Park Clutch and the Art Deco Clutch to events leading up to January’s Golden Globe Awards.
Jill Milan handbags have been a consistent choice by other celebrities for red-carpet appearances. Stana Katic of television’s “Castle” carried Jill Milan’s 450 Sutter Clutch to the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards. Eva Longoria carried the brand’s Pacific Heights Clutch to January’s presidential inauguration, and was one of the earliest Hollywood celebrities to carry Jill Milan when she carried the Art Deco Clutch to the “Desperate Housewives” wrap party last year. Actress Kerry Washington carried Jill Milan’s Holland Park clutch for Berlin and London premieres of her film “Django Unchained.” Singer Carrie Underwood carried the Jill Milan Holland Park Clutch to the CMT Artists of the Year awards in December, and in November she 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.” 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.
Jill Milan handbags have caught the attention of fashion media in recent months. W Magazine featured the Holland Park Clutch in its September issue and the 450 Sutter Clutch in its September trends supplement. W also highlighted the Art Deco Clutch in its April issue’s “Most Wanted” feature. The Zoe Report recognized the Newbury Street Portfolio for its ability “to go from the office to cocktail hour.” Wedding media publisher The Knot featured the Art Deco Clutch as part of a striking ensemble in its Winter 2012 Weddings Magazine. Influential fashion blog Wendy’s Lookbook featured photos of fashion writer Wendy Nguyen carrying the Art Deco Clutch on her trip to Florence, Italy.
The Holland Park Clutch is an elegant clutch for day or evening. It is entirely handmade by an Italian jeweler of metal and Italian faux leather, and the logo at the top of the clutch functions as the bag’s closure.
