Christian Louboutin's Artemis Purse: Stylish or Dangerous?

A lady always carries a purse. But should she carry one that also serves as a potentially lethal weapon? Christian Louboutin's new crystal-studded python "Artemis" shoulder bag features spikes that will "seriously toughen up your accessories collection," according to e-tailer net-a-porter.com.



So how much does it cost for "high-impact gothic glamor"? A mere $1,995, or what we like to describe as several months' rent. And don't forget the legal fees when you get arrested at the airport -- Louboutin's $1,245 studded loafers were already deemed a weapon by the TSA earlier this year.

Frankly, we still don't understand why people will spend a month's salary on something just because it has red soles or spikes or whatever Louboutin has dreamed up. And this latest handbag might cause a fashion emergency -- literally.

At least you'll be on trend. Ladylike shoulder bags -- seen on Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston lately -- are "in" for fall. According to the "Today" show, "classic" handbags with plenty of hardware are in style. But this purse may have a little TOO much hardware for normal, non-violent people.

    I see purse snatchers and subway molestors have weighed heavily in the dangerous column.

    It's cute. And hey if you can afford it, why not? Besides, even if it is a weapon, how is this any different from a woman carrying around pepper spray? The bag is called "Artemis" who is the greek goddess of the hunt and young girls. Basically Artemis is the epitome of a strong independent woman. And if any thing says strong independent woman, it is this bag.

    The wearer needs to be careful not to poke her own eye out with those studded spikes.
    It would be fine for when she's in an especially leather and spike state of mind.

    It looks like it could poke you in the neck/face and it dose look like it could be used as a weapon.
