I loved the red clutch purse that actress Taraji P. Henson carried on the Oscars red carpet.

In fact – I loved it so much that I wanted to share some of my favorite red clutch purse picks, for almost any budget!

Let’s start with the high-end splurge:

That is a Christian Louboutin “Petal” satin evening bag.  Yes, it costs almost $1500, but it’s a Louboutin – you’re paying for quality here ladies!

My mid-range pick rings in at a more moderate $225:

That’s the “Caroline” clutch purse by designer Lauren Merkin, also in red satin.

My next pick isn’t made out of red satin, but at only $58, I can work with red faux croc:
