Some people just refer it as clutch. But it’s not a clutch, it’s a minaudiere. What makes it different than a clutch? It’s usually smaller and more structured (framed). It’s full of fancy and sparkling ornamental. Celebrities often carried it to awards night or any red carpet events to complete their sophisticated gown.

Judith Leiber is one of the most iconic brands for Minaudiere. According to Neiman Marcus, nearly every First Lady dating back since 1953 has carried custom- made Leiber bag to the U.S Presidential Inauguration ceremonies. The priced for the ones above started at $2000 a piece.
Minaudiere is sure one pricy and precious little thing. With something so striking in our palms, we almost don’t need any other accessories to look glam.
Do you own any minaudiere? Or do you still prefer the regular clutch to hold on to the youth look?
