The iPhone in basic black, for $2,000

No one said good taste came cheap.

Charles & Marie

Who needs gold and diamonds on a phone anyway? Don Corleone would have said such excesses were something for Tattaglia and his ilk--pimps.

Someone with true taste would opt for something much more classic, such as a black iPhone. This modified handset from Charles & Marie, called the "ccPhone," is one of only 50 limited-edition models finished in black matte and accompanied by an exclusive collection of music, videos, wallpaper and other software, according to Luxist.

But the privilege of owning this beauty--the phone's equivalent of a designer's little black dress--will cost $2,000. No one said that good taste came cheap.
