What does a 9-year-old Best Actress nominee carry to the Oscars?

If you’re Quvenzhané Wallis, the answer would be one of your puppy purses!

Nominated for her role as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild, the young actress spoke with Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month about her canine-inspired accessories.

“That’s my signature!” she told the host. And “Yes, of course” she’d be carrying one of the 20 pup purses in her collection on Oscar night in Hollywood.

She sported a sequined version for her appearance on Ellen, where she also talked about her real-live pets: a Yorkie and a German Shepherd.

We’ll be tuning in to the red carpet coverage on Sunday to see if she’s carrying the much larger version that Ellen provided her with, packed with items to help the youngest Best Actress nominee ever avoid boredom during the lengthy ceremony.

For now, though, we’re sure you’ll adore watching the interview below, in case you missed it.
