Blue Ivy Carter has a solid gold rocking horse. North West has a wardrobe any adult woman would envy. That’s the life of a celebrity baby — a King’s ransom worth of expensive gifts come birthday time. Sitting in the lap of luxury, these tiny tots have it all. So as we wish a very happy first birthday to little Prince George of Cambridge, we’re speculating the treasure troves of gifts he might be receiving from his high-flying celebrity pals to celebrate his first year on planet Earth.
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.
The idea of keeping up with the Joneses thrives in the celebrity world. Hence the outlandish cars, jewels and homes stars snatch up to keep themselves looking fresh. And when it comes to creating a personalized gallery or museum in the comfort of their own home, Madonna, Swizz Beatz, Victoria Beckham and more understand that money is no object. Art is priceless, after all.
Let’s just get one thing out on the table. It’s obvious, but worth noting that celebs — whether they’re movie stars, supermodels, Hollywood wives, reality personalities or some combination of the three — are very careful not to do anything that would jeopardize having a perfect body. Plainly speaking, they’re terrified of gaining weight. Cellulite and muffin tops are not on the menu! So, it’s always a surprise to us when we see A-list moms with more than two children. In celeb circles, that’s a downright enormous family — Duggars-enormous. And triple the amount of working-out to get their bodies back in red carpet shape.
From Heidi Klum to Victoria Beckham, check out our countdown of ultra-glam mommies and their boisterous, big families.

Is Sara Gilbert married? Which one of Posh Spice‘s sons is a model? What’s the secret to Marvel’s success?
We totally get that Kim Kardashian wanted to debut a hot new look after giving birth to Nori. But blonde was so not the move. Our lush Armenian goddess now looks like every other bleached babe in L.A. (and very J. Lo circa 2000, besides). She’s certainly not the only star who’s golden locks look unnatural instead of glam. From Katy Perry to Emma Stone, these 20 stars need to accept that blondes don’t always have more fun. Here’s to brunette fabulosity!

Two years ago today, the world welcomed a brand-new Spice Girl into our midst — who also, mind you, has the potential to be the girl who finally popularizes women’s soccer across the globe. Yes, Harper Seven Beckham is 2, and getting cuter and more fashion-savvy every day.
Were Posh and Becks too cool to compete in their son’s school day races? Who’s getting the bulk of James Gandolfini‘s $70 million fortune? And who was The Lone Ranger‘s Armie Hammer most nervous about impressing?
Romeo Beckham is clearly following in his very fashionable father and mother’s footsteps. It’s kind of par for the course when you have a parental unit comprising David and Victoria Beckham. And it goes without saying that is first modeling assignment — at the age of 10, FYI — would be a very prestigious one. Romeo’s the star of the new Burberry Spring 2013 advertisement which you can see above. And the kid’s got major swag. He looks great in the brand’s signature trench coat and we even give him props for popping its collar. Something we would have not done for any other human being. So, while he looks adorable, we’re going to have to admit that the campaign and the brand’s logic perplexes us. First up, we don’t get what they’re trying to portray here apart from Romeo looking adorable. Are the two adults on the side supposed to be mannequins? Are they metaphors for the traditional modes of modeling? Or is that too deep?
Secondly, and more importantly, this whole deal is a bit hypocritical, innit. Six years ago, Burberry’s head designer, Christopher Bailey was rumored to have been given a slap on the wrist for hanging with Victoria Beckham. Because, in another very past age, Victoria was considered to be the Queen of the WAGS and was viewed as too “chav” to be wearing the brand. This sort of news will never be explicitly confirmed because who will own up to something like that? But you know it was snooty enough to be true. But now that Vicky B’s transformation is complete and she’s become a High Priestess of Fashion, it’s all forgotten — by both the brand the parents. Tsk tsk.
