Though there was much anticipation about what 9-year-old lead actress nominee Quvenzhane Wallis would wear on the Oscars red carpet Sunday, there was arguably as much intrigue about which puppy-dog purse she would select.

She showed off her latest canine accesssory, which was decked out in a tiara, tutu and Swarovski crystals.

Asked where she keeps all the purses back home in Louisiana, she said they’re all tucked away in her room. And would she ever bring one to school?


“Heck no!” she said.

Quvenzhane, who had been heavily promoting her movie for months, said she was eager to head back home.

“I’m pretty much ready for it to be over,” she said, “but I’m going to miss it here.”
