Quvenzhané Wallis Loves Puppy Purses!

This year’s littlest Oscars Best Actress nominee, Quvenzhané Wallis, initially captured our hearts in the riveting indie Beasts of the Southern Wild, and as we’ve soldiered on through awards season, she’s caught our eye as a rising style star. Her red carpet steez strays infrequently from her go-to cocktail frock + shiny flats + curls, but one style element that’s definitely a constant in her public appearance outfits is: a plushy puppy purse! During a recent stint on The Ellen Show, Quvenzhané revealed to DeGeneres that she has “about 20” different puppy purses, and confirmed that she will be toting one at this month’s Academy Awards. “Yes, of course,” she told Ellen, “That’s my signature! I’ve had this since Utah.” Utah! She’s referring, of course, to last year’s Sundance Film Festival when and where Beasts premiered.

We’ve seen Wallis rock black-and-white bull terriers with pink sequin bodies, bulldogs clad in blue, and even a Jeremy Scott-esque pink poodle bag or two. The 9-year-old Oscar nominee always always matches her puppy purse to her outfit which totally makes sense if she’s picking from a pool of about 20. Unfortunately, the surplus of options doesn’t help us narrow down what dress she’ll be wearing on the big night. Rather than beating ourselves up fighting the prediction machine, we’re just going to trust that we’ll never be able to forecast it, and instead look at the incredible amount of canine carry-alls (and one Hello Kitty purse!) she’s already worn. Enjoy!
