Julia Butters may be only 10 years old, but she proved she is wise beyond her years when she hit the red carpet (opens in new tab) Sunday at the 92nd Annual Academy Awards (opens in new tab). For the child star, who won critical acclaim this season for playing Trudi Fraser in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it was a major fashion moment.
“Beyond excited to wear something special from one of my FAVORITE DESIGNERS on Sunday," Butters tweeted (opens in new tab) ahead earlier this weekend alongside a photo of a Christian Siriano label.
We fell in love with Butters even more when we learned on E!'s red carpet broadcast (opens in new tab) that the actress sketched the custom pink dress herself. But it was one of Butters' accessories that ended up stealing the show from her A-list design. Packed inside her crystal disco ball purse was none other than a turkey sandwich (opens in new tab). Let it be known that the Marzook bag retails for $2,495, according to Page Six (opens in new tab).
The tiny icon told Amy Kaufman from the Los Angeles Times (opens in new tab) that she packed the sandwich, which included tomato, because "I don't like some of the food here."

The Golden Globes introduced a totally vegan menu for the first time (opens in new tab) history this year. Designed by Wolfgang Puck, the Oscar's Governor Ball menu is just 70 percent plant-based, according to Robb Report (opens in new tab).
When Joaquin Phoenix (opens in new tab) walked on stage to collect his award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture for his dramatic turn as the villain in the comic book film Joker at the Globes (opens in new tab), he surprised many when he began his acceptance speech (opens in new tab) by thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for its progressive menu.
"First, I'd like the Hollywood Foreign Press for recognizing and acknowledging the link between animal agriculture (opens in new tab) and climate change," the actor said. "It's a very bold move making tonight plant-based, and it really sends a powerful message."
If Joaquin wins tonight, will he use his speech as an opportunity to call on the Oscars to do the same? Whatever happens, Julia has her own turkey sandwich.
