You might not have access to a celebrity stylist, but that doesn’t mean you can’t steal this season’s hottest award show accessories straight from the red carpet (and for far less, too). Whether you’ve got a fancy date coming up or a winter wedding to attend, these sparklers are sure to make you look and feel like a million bucks.

Featuring shiny cut-out encasing with textured metallic accents and a rhinestone-embellished snap closure, this star-worthy clutch is bold and beautiful all at once. Plus, it comes with a convenient removable chain shoulder strap.
