Please leave it to SJP to always wear something unpredictable yet chic. Last year, we caught her using a sac bag from Halston Heritage instead of the usual clutch while attending a formal event.

And last week, she surprised us once again by pairing her glamorous Valentino gown with a chain strap mini crossbody while attending the NYC Ballet Spring Gala:

Here’s a closer look at SJP’s mini crossbody. It actually looks like a clutch that doubles as a crossbody. Most women would probably do away with the strap for such a red carpet event, but SJP did the opposite – she wore it!

And get this; she did not just wear it; she wore it as a crossbody, as if hitting the gala was just another day at the mall:

What do you think of the look, by the way? Can you pull off wearing a crossbody to a formal event?

Per various sources, SJP’s clutch is from Rome-based luxury house VBH, founded by handbag designer Bruce Hoeksema.

Not unexpectedly, SJP’s clutch bag doesn’t come cheap and reportedly costs $1,750!

Wow, for such a thin and small purse, it sure is expensive. If you can afford it, feel free to purchase it at Mytheresa.

If you can’t, try this oversized clutch from MICHAEL Michael Kors instead on Amazon:

You can also try the MATT & NAT Hendrix Clutch. It has a more casual feel to it, but if you think it’s glam-perfect, then grab it at Nordstrom:
