SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced actress Stana Katic carried the luxury brand to the “Game of Thrones” Season 3 premiere in Hollywood Monday night. Ms. Katic, star of ABC’s crime drama series “Castle,” carried the Jill Milan Holland Park Clutch as she arrived on the red carpet at the TCL Chinese Theatre.
Ms. Katic previously carried Jill Milan’s 450 Sutter Clutch to the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards. She has starred on “Castle” since the series premiered in 2009 and has appeared on other television shows such as “CSI: Miami,” “Heroes,” “24,” “ER” and “The Shield.” Ms. Katic’s movie appearances include the James Bond franchise’s “Quantum of Solace” and spy film “The Double” starring Richard Gere.
The Jill Milan collection is made entirely in Italy, by Italian artisans using Italian fabrics. Details include hand stitching and handmade palladium-coated hardware, and metal-based bags are handmade by a craftsman who creates jewelry for Europe’s leading luxury brands. All Jill Milan products are free of leather, fur and other animal-based materials.
“Stana looked as lovely as ever for the premiere, and we are so pleased she again chose to carry a Jill Milan clutch,” said Jill Fraser, co-founder and CEO of Jill Milan.
Other celebrities who have carried Jill Milan on the red carpet include two of February’s Academy Award recipients. Anne Hathaway, winner in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role category for her performance in “Les Miserables,” has carried Jill Milan to many events, including premieres in New York and London for her films “Les Miserables” and “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 celebrities for red-carpet appearances.
