Diane Kruger carries a red Chanel Lego Clutch while leaving her NYC hotel (5)

Diane Kruger has been hot on the press circuit this week in NYC, drumming up a little publicity for her new movie The Host. (Yes, Stephenie Meyer’s new aliens-not-vampires movie.) You’ll notice she’s carrying a hot red Chanel Lego Clutch. Diane is a special pet of Karl Lagerfeld’s, so it’s no surprise that she’s one of the first celebs to be spotted with this intriguing new design, which made its debut in Chanel’s Spring 2013 line. You can check out the rest of Chanel’s Spring 2013 bags here. If you’re curious about the make and the price, this compact little bag is made of plexiglass, and retails for $9,900. If you can find one, that is – they’re pretty scarce.

While you can’t deny this bag’s bold, statement-making potential, can that ever really justify that rather exorbitant price tag? It is just a clutch purse with a strap, after all – and let me reiterate – it’s made of plexiglass.

    I love her outfit. That lovely sheer white blouse with a fur (please be fake) bolero/shrug. The shoes are throwing me off a bit, maybe they look a little light considering that the rest of the outfit spells the need for warmth, anyway love the Chanel bag. It’s a very Hollywood circa 1950s look.

    I disagree! The bag is sensational. Diane’s outfit is highly unflattering. She’s carrying a sleek, contemporary bag with a pooched-out, “what century” outfit.

    It makes me think of Leggo! I do not care for a hard edged bag myself.
