Quvenzhané Wallis Red Carpet Dress: The Puppy Purse is Back!


The puppy purse is back! Now her signature accessory, a puppy purse (outfitted with a tiara and tutu) hangs on nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis's shoulder. The Best Actress nominee chatted with E! correspondent Ryan Seacrest and let him know that she named the purse after her own dog at home. The Beasts of the Southern Wild star chose her blue gown because it was "sparkly," and even though Wallis had said in previous interviews that she would be wearing a short gown so she wouldn't trip, the spaghetti-strap dress reaches nearly to the red carpet.
