Katie Cassidy and the Judith Leiber Cherish Package Minaudiere

There's nothing in the fashion world that excites me more than award season (with the exception of handbags, of course). The People's Choice Awards kicked off the 2010 season with a slew of emerging actresses clad in interesting cocktail dresses. The most "intriguing" of the bunch was newcomer Katie Cassidy. The Melrose Place actress (and David Cassidy's little girl) was clad in Talbot Runhof and carrying a Judith Leiber Cherish Package Minaudiere. Do I love her little bag? No. Kim Kardashian's Kotur minaudiere would kick this one's butt any day of the week and twice on Sunday. The nearly $4K crystal-encrusted clutch, shaped to resemble a gift box (gag!), is too cutesy to be fashionable and relevant. In addition, pairing it with such a fashion-forward (if somewhat questionable) dress from Talbot Runhof results in a styling conundrum.

I'm actually a Talbot Runhof fan. The duo's dresses are always edgy and refined. Perhaps Katie would've done better with the asymmetrical off-the-shoulder version of her dress or the raspberry crisscross bodice mini dress (both pictured). All in all, this look was a miss, and the bag an expensive dud. Let's hope the SAG's, Golden Globes and Oscars offer us more appealing arm candy. I think Hollywood stylists can do better than this.
