"Anne Hathaway looked lovely in her short dress and with her Jill Milan 450 Sutter clutch," said Jill Fraser, co-founder and CEO of Jill Milan.

Jill Milan handbags have caught the attention of fashion media in recent months.

W also highlighted the Art Deco Clutch in its April issue's "Most Wanted" feature. The Zoe Report recognized the Newbury Street Portfolio for its ability "to go from the office to cocktail hour."
