Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's high fashion line, The Row, has created 12 limited-edition black patent crocodile leather backpacks (covered with prescription pills) that are going for the crazy, over-the-top price of $55,000 APIECE! At this moment, I'm guessing that like me, you're rubbing your eyes in disbelief...

The sister duo has teamed up with artist Damien Hirst on this fashion/art project, according to Refinery29. You can check out a video of all 12 bags (and no, at that price they are even not diamond encrusted).

If you had the money, would you ever consider buying a bag like this? Who will be the first celebrity to show up to a party with one of these?

Those little bitches need to be drop kicked in the **** just for the fact that they are both to rich for doing nothing in their lives. As far as I'm concerned you can lock those two little bitches away for the rest of their lives and nobody would miss them.

And they always have the same weird look on their faces, the same parted down the middle, flat,  boring hair.  Nobody thinks their sexy, so stop with the close, face to face photos, with the wide eyed,  deer in the headlights look.  How can they be fashson designers, have you seen the clothes they wear?  Wow.

why wouldn't they use their ill-gotten riches for something good in the world besides an obnoxious handbag.!!!  Some people are just so shallow and egocentric.. They were ugly twins as little girls and have gotten even uglier with their greedy, snobbish personalities. Too bad people like that have to exist in our world.

    The 10 beauty products every model has in her medicine cabinet

    Models may be pros at walking with authority, wearing clothes well, and looking good doing practically anything—but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command of the world’s best beauty products. Backstage each season and on set throughout the year, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of mascaras, foundations, hairsprays, and more. Between having their hair teased within an inch of its life, their makeup applied and reapplied a dozen times in a day, and their skin pushed to its absolute limits, it’s safe to say they’ve figured out which are the most gentle, effective, and transformative formulas on the market. From the world’s sexiest (and most healing) lip balm to the original French pharmacy face cream, here are ten beauty products you can find in almost every model’s medicine cabinet.
