Take a bite out of luxury


What do you get when you pair a poisonous serpent with worldly precious stones? Extravagant footwear, that’s what. But leave it to Harrods of London to not just stop there. The new Rene Caovilla red, strappy sandals not only feature an elegant snake design encrusted with diamonds, sapphires and rubies for eyes, they hired a real snake to guard it! An Egyptian cobra to be exact. One can only imagine why such measures had to be taken to make sure this stunning beauty remained safely in its box (no, we’re not talking about the snake), which brings us to the even more unbelievable price tag: $120,000 is how much it will cost you to go home with these family jewels. Just try not to get bit while you sashay down the street.
