Zooey Deschanel’s clutch at the 2018 Oscars after-party was a replica of the book that inspired her name

Our eagle-eyes were glued to our television during the 2018 Oscars and the Vanity Fair after-party red carpet. Our fave celebs not only served us glamour, but they embraced their quirkiness and gave us some couture lewks, too. Zooey Deschanel hit the 2018 Vanity Fair after-party with an adorable book-inspired clutch that has us itching to get a version for ourselves.

By pairing the eccentric clutch with an elegant navy gown, Zooey Deschanel’s entire look was classic with a touch of high-fashion. And, of course, we love that the actress accessorized with a fun clutch that highlighted her unique personality and style. It’s especially appropriate because the clutch features the cover of “Franny and Zooey” by J.D. Salinger, which is the story that Zooey was named after.

The “Franny and Zooey” Clutch that Zooey Deschanel is holding was designed by Olympia Le-Tan and it’s unfortunately sold out.


We’re crossing our fingers for a re-stock because it couldn’t be cuter.

Until then, we’ll have to tide ourselves over with an assortment of similar options that are just as dreamy — and more affordable.
