We have to say, we've outdone ourselves this time.

We're giving away the "it" bag of the moment -- Lana Marks "Cleopatra Clutch" (worth $1,500).

Not only is the purse extremely hot right now; it's also a classic that will last a lifetime.

Plus, celebrities including Angelina Jolie -- who carried one to this year's "Academy Awards" -- have given it their seal of approval!

Not surprisingly, the bag is a favorite of fashion maverick Chloë Sevigny, who's known for her avant garde, fearless sense of style. (Unlike her dowdy character, Nicolette Grant, on HBO's "Big Love," who is more comfortable in denim maxi skirts than Miu Miu minis.)

Since Sevigny is often rocking a scene-stealing frock on the red carpet, she loves the simple, elegant style of Lana Marks evening bags.

According to Marie Claire, Sevigny says of the "Cleopatra Clutch": "Too many bags flaunt huge labels. I prefer a more discreet look."

She's obviously telling the truth -- pictures don't lie (see above!).
