Croco Kid's featured beauty icon, Mexican actress Maria Felix, was described in the write-up as " an unrepentant diva...had a penchant for collecting husbands (four, officially) and lovers (Diego Rivera, for one) that was only surpassed by her love of jewelry."

The diva that she was, she deserved nothing less than an emerald-and-diamond-encrusted gold necklace modeled after baby crocodiles. This was said to be the piece de resistance of a collection Cartier released in her honor last year. According to, the piece was specially commissioned for her. "She is reported to have stalked into the Paris boutique with a baby crocodile in tow and asked the stunned jewelers to replicate the reptile in gems, stipulating, no less, that the piece be done to scale."

How come we don't have anymore of these glamorously crazy women these days?
