It’s probably not surprising that rich celebrities spend a lot of money on frivolous stuff, but what’s always shocking is exactly HOW MUCH they’re willing to spend. Stars like Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Olivia Palermo seem to have no limit to how much they’ll drop in the name of accessorizing.
We’re talking bags that cost anywhere from $30,000 to one million dollars. While Washington debates raising the minimum wage, these ostentatious celebrities have no problem doling out the equivalent of a mid-level manager’s salary on something to hold their car keys. The rest of us might call a $100 purchase lavish, and yet many of these celebrity bags are well beyond what a regular person would make in a year. Some of the celebrity offenders in question are the usual suspects: Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé. But some lavish spenders will surprise you, especially a certain vocal humanitarian who wore a $200,000 bag to an awards show. Is that better or worse than the celebrity who burned her $100,000 Birkin in the name of “art”? You decide.
