Sophia Bush chose her outfit for the 2011 “Do Something Awards” in association with VH1, based around her beautiful “Hands Up Not Handouts” Ishya clutch. “We’re giving women jobs rather than just giving them aid. When you create a job system it’s there forever,” said Sophia. Life&Style voted her “Best Red Carpet Moment” of the week. Way to go Sophia!
