Just in time for the holiday season, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion line will offer a limited-edition handbag, made of black patent Nile crocodile skin and covered with prescription pill appliqués—for a whopping $55,000. The bag, which was designed with the help of artist Damien Hirst, is stirring up controversy for more than just its price tag. Mary-Kate herself has spent several stints in rehab for her own eating disorder (and rumored cocaine addiction). But don’t worry; a portion of the proceeds will go to UNICEF. If you’ve got the cash to spare, you'd better be prepared to fight off other Olsen fans for the bag—only 12 of them will be made available on December 12.
