“WE NEVER REGRET OUR EXTRAVAGANCES, WE ALWAYS REGRET OUR PENNY-PINCHING” by Peggy Healy

If there ever was a time for extravagance, it’s now – the biggest party of the year, the Met’s Costume Institute Gala, is just a week away.  Are you ready to walk the red carpet or watch those who will?  Last year some favorite Clara Kasavina aficionados (wearers of Clara Kasavina evening bags and jewelry) strode the red carpet:   Beyonce,  RihannaCandy Pratts Price, and Jennifer Lopez (recently featured in the pages of VOGUE wearing Clara’s IVY CUFF) to name a few.

We asked Clara to pick an adorable clutch; the perfect IT bag; a drop-dead entrance evening bag; or a height-of-fashion minaudiere and pair it one of these stars, for this year’s show. And because the exhibit is entitled “Schiaparelli and Prada:  Impossible Conversations,” Clara references in her choices both of these iconic fashion figures – the 1930’s designer Elsa Schiaparelli and the very now Miuccia Prada.

For Beyonce: Marquise is a height-of-fashion minaudiere encrusted with Swarovski Elements and crowned with a gorgeous sparkling blue marquise-shaped stone clasp.  The blue clearly honors the glam star’s new baby, Blue Ivy.  It also references the famous SchiaparelliTears Dress, a slender pale-blue evening gown printed with a Dali design of trompe l'oeil rips and tears. “Art and design – that’s what Misha (Clara’s husband and artistic partner) and I love.”

For Rihanna: Alexis is an adorable leather clutch in hot pink or you might say in shocking pink (Schiaparelli’s signature color named after the packaging color of her perfume, Shocking). For red carpet cool, this hot, neon-bright IT bag is the ticket. “And though it’s pink, we hope it will cause some green envy,” says Clara with a twinkle in her eye.

For Candy Pratts Price:  This award-winning fashion editor adores color, so Clara chose Clara Kasavina’s Sophia Puff, an extravagant orange python clutch with a hand-sculpted metal frame topped by a floral center clasp set with cabochons and crystals.  Prada loves orange, too, as shown by a stunning coat and prints “enriched with orange” on the runway at her February show. “Love of color is love of life,” says Clara.

For Jennifer Lopez:  Red is J.Lo’s color, so Clara picked Galaxy, a Python clutch in a sensual crimson red, inspired by a perfume bottle.  It features a hand-sculpted filigree metal frame with a Galactic center and a SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS clasp.  This is the drop-dead entrance evening bag, guaranteed to turn heads. “And darling, don’t we all want to turn heads,” says Clara.

Clara Kasavina featured on Cat Deeley in People’s Style Watch!

One of our Fave’s So You Think You Can Dance Star Cat Deeley was spotted in the November issue of People’s Style Watch sporting a Clara Kasavina Romeo Minaudiere.

Donning a Vintage Glam outfit, Cat pulled this enchanting look together. This is why she’s one to watch – especially after being noticed on People’s Style Watch.  Cat wore a re-worked vintage blush number, crystalized on the bodice with lady like splendor.  Cat paired this confection with our Romeo Minaudiere and silver Jimmy Choo sandals.

Cat is a fan of dramatic yet elegant looks and we agree – she always looks ravishing.  A fashion maven in her own right, her personal style is bold yet feminine.  She is never afraid to take a fashion risk, and being her own stylist – this says a lot about the charming Brit.  From big name designers to treasured vintage finds, Cat is for sure a Style Star.
