The Word: Quvenzhane Wallis’ puppy purses make a splash on red carpet
It’s a very slow gossip day and, honestly, if I have to write one more thing about the feud between Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes, I’m going to pack up my things and move to Vermont where I will spend the rest of my days raising cattle and never reading another Us Weekly ever again. Or raising Budweiser Clydesdales. Whichever.
So, today’s column will be about something worth highlighting: the awesomeness that is Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis‘ puppy purses. Wallis owns 20 of the purses — by Poochie & Co. — and they’ve been a mainstay on the red carpet for the 9-year-old actress. “That’s my signature,” she told Ellen DeGeneres on “Ellen,” about always rocking the accessory. And yes, expect to see one pop up (pup up?) at the Oscars. When asked by Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” who she’ll be taking to the award’s ceremony, she held up her puppy purse and said, “This and my mom.”
In Hollywood, where we force our girls to grow up much too quickly, it’s nice to see a little girl act like a little girl. And carry a mass-produced purse that looks like a little dog instead of, you know, Gucci.
