When it comes to red carpet appearances, they spare no expense. Here's a look at some of the hottest, eye-wateringly priciest purses stars have been spotted with in recent months!

Everyone knows that designer handbags don't come cheap, but then just how expensive is expensive, particularly when a fashion accessory comes at the same cost as a car?

Despite their visual appeal, the pricetags on these clutches will have you clucking!

Miranda Kerr's Stuart Weitzman Keeping Clutch

The Aussie supermodel has an array of designer handbags and this is shimmering silver-grey envelope clutch is actually one of her more affordable pieces -- well, relatively anyway, it's the cheapest on our list!

The Stuart Weitzman Keeping Clutch, which she carried to the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last month, costs $475 -- approximately Rs 28,510.

Salma Hayek's Alexander McQueen Snakeskin Skull-Clasp Clutch

When your husband is the billionaire head honcho of a chain of luxury fashion houses like Gucci, Saint Laurent Paris and Bottega Veneta, the sky's the limit.

So it's hardly surprising that the box-y gold Alexander McQueen Snakeskin Skull-Clasp Clutch Salma Hayek was seen sporting at the Oscars back in February retails at $2,315, or approximately Rs 1,38,946!

Michelle Williams' Olympia Le-Tan punk poster clutch

The petite blonde attended one of the biggest international fashion dos of the year, the annual Costume Institute Gala at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, carrying a trendy book clutch by French designer Olympia Le-Tan.

These handmade literary purses certainly don't come cheap -- Williams' would set you back 1,000 pounds, approximately Rs 91,920.

Kate Middleton's Alexander McQueen Wicca Mini leather satchel

The Duchess of Cambridge is known to mix high street fashion with high-end couture, so it's not always easy to gauge the worth of what she's wearing.

What we can tell you however, is that this unassuming little bag she carried to the naming ceremony of a cruise ship last month is deceptively low-key -- the Alexander McQueen Wicca Mini leather satchel comes at a cool cost of $1,095 or Rs 65,721 approximately.

The flashy cyclindrical bag matched her gown to the tee, but it may not match everyone's pocketbook -- the Cosma retails at $1,595, approximately Rs 95,731.

The Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit Ricamo -- when it's a mouthful like that, you know what you're in for!

This little metal clutch, which is priced at EUR1,300 (approximately Rs 1,01,439) has found favour with a number of A-listers and Lawrence, who sported it at the 2013 Oscars, is only one of them; other fans include Kate Winslet, Dianna Agron and Ashley Greene.

Jessica Alba's Roger Vivier Pochette Prisme Poodle clutch

You may not think of it as more than a bit of fluff, but this red feathered purse by Roger Vivier, appropriately christened the Pochette Prisme Poodle, would set you back $1,725 -- that's approximately Rs 1,03,535.

Of course the hefty pricetag is not an issue for Jessica Alba, who was seen proudly showing it off at the Golden Globes this past January.

Diane Kruger's Jason Wu Karlie Lace clutch

Covered with a layer of mesh lace, this prim little metal box by Taiwanese-Canadian designer Jason Wu found favour with the actress, who was seen with it at the Critics' Choice Television Awards in LA this June.

We're wondering, though, how the $1,450 that it costs -- approximately Rs 87,029 -- can be justified.

Beyonce's Swarovski Gemma Clutch

She and husband Jay-Z are a billionaire couple and Beyonce is often spotted in obscenely priced couture, but this is not one of those times.

The singer obviously goes with what she likes without a thought for the label or the expense -- the Swarovski Gemma Clutch she carried to the Grammys this year cost a rather reasonable (by celeb standards) 300 pounds, approximately Rs 27,576. Expensive, but not enough to have you gasping for breath!
