Based in Palm Beach, FL, Lana J. Marks has been a fashion fixture on Oscar’s Red Carpet for more than a decade. She is one of the world’s most-prestigious designers of elegant, exquisite and expensive handbags and accessories, according to many top fashion magazine editors. LANA MARKS Brand haute couture Collections are commissioned and worn by princesses, U.S. presidential first ladies and Hollywood celebrities.


Cleopatra Clutches are valued as high as $400,000.00. They are the most sought-after Oscar Night haute couture handbags; worn by Academy Award-Winning actresses, nominees, presenters and motion picture icons. Cleopatra Clutch Celebrities have included Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Aniston and Kate Winslet.

In 2007, Mirren won the “Best Actress Award” for her role as “Queen Elizabeth II.” As she stepped-up to the microphone for her acceptance speech, Mirren held the Cleopatra Clutch in her hand for the world to see and proclaimed, “Here I am…with my purse.”

LANA MARKS’ Cleopatra Clutch design was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor’s starring role in the 1963 epic motion picture, “Cleopatra.”


This is the first time Lana J. Marks has provided two Cleopatra Clutches to actresses attending the Academy Awards Ceremony.

As in the case of McTeer, Marks typically provides a custom Cleopatra Clutch to a nominee or presenter. However, this year, she is furnishing a second Cleopatra Clutch to Li Bingbing; because she is the first Chinese actress to be invited to the Oscar Ceremonies; and because Marks is expanding her enterprise in China. Marks opened her first China boutique in Beijing 18 months ago. Marks will open a second boutique in China’s capital city on March 10, 2012 and her first Shanghai boutique on March 11, 2012.

In the film “Albert Nobbs,” British actress Janet McTeer stars opposite Glenn Close as a cross-dressing lesbian in 1890s Ireland. Close has been nominated for the Academy’s Best Actress Award. This is McTeer’s second Oscar nomination. She is a two-time Tony Award Winner.

Li Bingbing is the most-famous actress in China. She recently starred in the critically-acclaimed Chinese-made motion picture, “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.” Li Bingbing co-produced the movie with Wendy Murdoch, the wife of global media mogul Rupert Murdoch. She is considered the most-influential movie-maker in Asia.

Lana J. Marks was first introduced to Li Bingbing and Wendy Murdoch in October 2011 at China’s Shanghai Film Festival.
