Weapon of Beauty: Dior 001

Lipgloss Component

Amsterdam-based atelier Ted Noten designed a weapon of beauty titled Dior 001. The gun is part of a larger new series entitled 7 Necessities for a Woman to Feel Like a Woman Through the Eyes of a Man.

Dior 001 discreetly hides lip-gloss, pills, an antique hairpin, a USB stick with “secret information,” and a 100 gram sterling silver bar. The firearm is made from a 3D printed nylon body with 18 carat gold.

Pretty crazy, isn’t it?
