The only thing we love more than a fashionable red carpet moment is an incredibly sweet red carpet moment. Ted Lasso actress Hannah Waddingham delivered both with her appearance at the 30th annal Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Feb. 24.

While speaking with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet ahead of the Saturday night event, Waddingham revealed that her 9-year-old daughter, Kitty, handmade her clutch for the evening. 

“Look at this,” Waddingham proudly stated by showing off her cardboard clutch, adorned with colorful rainbow accents and the word “Epic” written across the top. “My girl made this for me.”

The functional bag held all of the star’s essentials for the evening, and Waddingham pointed out how much the special statement accessory meant to her.

“I love that she was like, it’s a little ‘one love,’ and she said to me, ‘Mommy, it goes with everything and nothing, like you say,’” Waddingham added.

The custom creation was the perfect sweet accent to Waddingham’s curve-accentuating ruby red gown by Tony Ward couture. The stunning off-the-shoulder dress featured a thigh-high slit that put the star’s toned leg on display. As for glam, the Game of Thrones star opted for flirty lashes, nude lips and voluminous curls in her platinum blonde hair.

The 49-year-old British actress was nominated for Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her role as Rebecca Welton in Ted Lasso. The cast was also nominated for Comedy Series Ensemble, while the show’s stars Brett Goldstein and Jason Sudeikis were also up for Male Actor in a Comedy Series.
