Clint Eastwood's model daughter Francesca has infuriated fashion fans after slashing a $100,000 (£62,500) designer leather handbag and setting it on fire for a controversial new shoot with her photographer boyfriend Tyler Shields.

The lensman is famous for his provocative pictures of celebrities like Eastwood, Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton, and Shields' latest art endeavour sees him and his girlfriend take a chainsaw to a red Hermes Birkin bag before sending it up in flames.

The edgy snaps have prompted a flurry of angry responses from budget-conscious fashionistas on Facebook and Twitter.com, with some even sending 19-year-old Francesca Eastwood death threats online, according to TMZ.com.

One user writes, "Some of us actually have to work and live check 2 check, spoiled rotten b**ch to burn 100k bag (sic)", while another fumes, "You should kill urself (sic), ungrateful b**ch - wasted money when families can't eat".
