South Korean newspaper Joongang Daily has pointed out that in recently published state pictures of the new North Korean first lady, Ri Sol-Ju, she appears to be holding a very expensive Dior handbag:
The paper says that real versions of the handbag cost 1.8 million won ($1,594) in Seoul, which the Telegraph reports is roughly equal to the national salary in North Korea. It is, however, unclear if the bag is a real Dior item or a copy.
AFP reports that the photo was broadcast Tuesday night.
