What’s Inside A Celebrity’s Clutch? Here’s What Stars Usually Bring To The ABS-CBN Ball!

The most glamorous evening of the year is upon us. In just a few days, the biggest, brightest stars in the country will walk the red carpet—and everyone else will be glued to their screens, awaiting who’s going out with whom. That and of course, their covet-worthy outfits.

Year after year, the Metro team covers the exclusive event to share the latest happenings with our readers. We talk up close and personal with the most stylish ABS-CBN stars, chit-chatting about what (and who!) they’re wearing, taking in as much fashion inspiration we can get. Aside from the stunning dresses, one fashion piece that always catches our attention is the clutch. The tiny but essential, make-it-or-break-it accessory.

But what’s inside a famous personality’s red carpet-worthy clutch, anyway? Spoiler alert: It’s not very different from what we’d usually bring to a fancy party. After all, celebrities are also people. Below, we’ve listed down some of the top celebrity must-haves for any kind of red carpet event.


1. A teeny, tiny mouth spray

A highly-anticipated event calls for a huge paparazzi crowd—and before the big party comes the red carpet interviews. To stay fresh and flawless, celebrities usually bring miniature bottles of mouth spray with them, spritzing these on before interviews. 


2. Their favorite lipstick!

Even stars know never to underestimate the power of a quick touch-up.

3. No-fail oil film

There’s no denying why this anti-shine product is a beauty must-have.


4. A trusty roll of Hollywood tape

You can always count on hollywood tape to avoid wardrobe malfunctions. 


5. A phone to capture moments with!

You know how the saying goes! If it’s not on Instagram, then did it really happen?


On that note, it’s time for another round of #MetroStyleWatch! Here are some of our favorite red carpet clutches through the years.
