Minaudière is a small ornamental case for a woman’s cosmetics, jewellery, or personal items that is often carried as a handbag – this is its lexical definiton. This small purse has hit the red carpet events and is becoming more and more popular with fashion-conscious celebrities.
Inspired by early 20th century jewelery boxes, today minaudières are shiny and jewel-encrusted. They are so tiny that a lipstick and a pocket of handkerchiefs is all you can keep there. But it doesn’t prevent Jennifer Lopez or Emmy Rossum from having one. They know that minaudière is a one-of-a-kind accessory.
Not long ago, J.Lo made quite a statement with her glamorous looks completed with a Judith Leiber Heart N’ Soul Minaudiere clutch at the Valentine’s Day. During Mark’s concert in New York she literally dilapidated all these who doubted in her marriage with Marc Anthony. This lovely heart-shaped, covered with Austrian crystals minaudière might have been a kind of a handbag manifesto.
Before Jennifer’s heart-shaped impact Emily Rossum had wowed the Whitney Museum of American Art audience where she appeared wearing Dior and carrying a silver shiny minaudiere. After all, minaudière is the ultimate evening occasion idea.
