Femme Fatale’s Secret Weapon

27 Jun

The Dutch jewelry designer Ted Noten has made a group of handgun-shaped compacts as part of a series he calls “Seven Necessities” which made its debut at Gallery Rob Koudijs in Amsterdam and was recently shown at Art Basel by the Ornamemtum Gallery of Hudson, N.Y.

Each faux firearm is devoted to a different cosmetic giant, Dior and Chanel among them, and includes a lip gloss in the muzzle, various pills (including Viagra) in the loading chamber, 100 grams of certified silver bullion in the Dior gun clip (50 grams of 24-karat gold in the Chanel), a toothpick and, in some models, a hairpin and a small vial of perfume. The guns also conceal a 4GB thumb drive for snapshots, personal data and corporate secrets…

Needless to say, if planning to encounter any situation in which one’s belongings might be scanned, like air travel, jury duty or hip-hop discos, the provocative object is best left at home…

The owner is also advised to exercise caution around female impersonators, lest her weapon be wrested away and used against her…

The white Dior gun will set a girl back 8,000 euros, or about $11,500. The black Chanel gun, however, costs over $17,000.
