Beauty hurts, but this fashion stunt bites. And somehow, we have a feeling PETA is not going to be happy with this fashion risk.
As if setting a Birkin on fire wasn't enough, the latest stunt from photographer Tyler Shields won't make animal lovers happy. In a move that is not quite cannibalism, but definitely not quite kosher, Shields, a well-known "celebrity photographer and Birkin destroyer," feeds a crocodile Hermes Birkin bag to an alligator.
In the video below, Shields photographs the alligator biting into the crocodile purse while actress Ana Mulvoy-Ten feeds the animal the bag. In later shots, she even goes in for a bite herself, prompting Shields to tells Daily Mail that he and the model were "inches from death at any moment."
We're not quite sure what Shields was thinking when he set out to do this photo shoot for his latest art installment, but we're pretty sure The Gloss nailed it with this fantastic headline: "If Destroying Birkins Won’t Make This Photographer Famous, Maybe Getting A Model’s Face Bitten Off Will." Touché.
