Revealed: What Quvenzhane Wallis Named Her Oscars Puppy Purse

Oscars 2013: Arrivals
Celebrities hit the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars.
Take a breath, inquiring fashion minds: Quvenzhane Wallis’ infamous “puppy purse” has a name.

The Oscar nominee, who has been toting around a different furry accessory at every red carpet this award season, told Celebuzz that the purse she brought to the 2013 Academy Awards holds a special place in her heart, as it was named after her very own real life pet.

“It’s renamed after my dog named Sammy,” the Beasts of the Southern Wild star told us. “He’s at home right now.”

Wallis, who, at the age of 9, holds the Academy Awards record for the youngest person nominated for Best Actress, added that her unique accessory is “special-made.”
