Inside the Obnoxious World of the ‘Rich Girls of China’ on Instagram
There’s no doubt that the young elite in China just love showing off their “blessed” lives on social media.
Just like their fellow rich kids around the world, we’d normally raid the “Rich Kids of China” Instagram, but since no one has posted on it in almost two years (maybe due to the fact that Instagram is banned in China), the reputations of all rich kids in China have been held up by these three ladies: Sian Xiao, Weymi Cho, and another woman known simply as “AL”.
Though you don’t need to be rich to eat there, it’s never bad to soak up some sun at the 5-Star Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, California.
Her bathing suitsays she’s fashionable, but her blank face and aviators say she’s incredibly unapproachable.
It seems people always like to pose by the pool at Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, but they never go in…
The Hermès Birkin 50, named so because it’s a massive 50 cm wide, can easily be worth a large chunk of the Rolls Royce it’s sitting in.
That being said, this collection of crocodile skin Hermès Birkins is definitely worth more than that Rolls Royce.
When you’re a super rich, seat belts become so middle class.
Being stupid rich means having a collection of Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Frank Muller, Chopard, Rolex, Piaget and Vacheron Constantin watches stacked in a crocodile skin case.
We’re pretty sure she doesn’t actually tan, she just likes to sit outside in her bikini.
When rich kids go look at cars, like this McLaren 675LT, they like to take a cool pic in the showroom just for Instagram. That’s what you’re looking at here.
The Macallan might normally be a top shelf $60 Scotch at your local grocery store. They might even keep it locked in the case. These bottles are nothing like that garbage though — you’re looking at tens of thousands of dollars in Scotch (and one Japanese whiskey), some of which is probably older than your parents.
The imagined dialogue:
“Can you take a pic of me in my awesome first class seat?”
“Okay, let me look busy on my phone.”
Poking fun of rich kids aside, this woman looks pretty boss in her outfit.
Oh this isn’t a boat — it’s a yacht. A Sunseeker yacht.
Here’s a woman trying on a fur hat by Fendi, so you know this used to be a furry animal once.
