The clutch bag (or so we thought) is ideal for the Christmas period as it features sequins and the cutest charm. But, no, it's actually a makeup bag! Identified as the Studio 54 Blue Cosmetic Bag by Nars, it's sadly no longer available to buy.

Sophie, 56, often makes sassy fashion statements with her handbags. At her appearance at Wimbledon in 2019, she carried a silver clutch bag alongside her gorgeous Peter Pilotto dress - and the arm candy featured a brazen message. The clutch was embroidered with a statement that read: "I am not saying I am wonderwoman. I'm just saying that no one has ever seen me and wonderwoman in the same place." Love it!
