For Fendi's controversial all-fur show during Paris Couture Week (the technical term is haute fourrure show), Karl Lagerfeld sent 36 fur capes, stoles, intarsia coats, and floor-length minks down the runway. While they are all undoubtedly expensive, there's one coat in particular has a heart attack-inducing price tag. The Financial Times reports that this full-length coat costs approximately €1 million, which translates into about $1.08 million.

The coat is made of sable, a very pricey fur, and on top of that, Fendi artisans painted every single puny fur follicle on the coat in metallic silver. "I dreamed about the moon," Lagerfeld explained to Vogue's Suzy Menkes. It's a shimmering effect for sure, and Fendi described it as adding "a unique and contemporary luminous metallic effect to the fur, while maintaining its softness."

You know what would look great with a single fur coat that costs almost as much as some houses on MTV Cribs?  One of those $1,000 Fendi bag shoulder straps, which suddenly look a lot more affordable. See the full coat below.
