On a recent promotional tour in the U.K., Miley Cyrus told BBC 1, "I'm here for four days, then have two days off. I'm going to lay in bed, catch up, and do some shopping … I'm going to take [my friends] inside some stores, like the Chanel in London and Topshop." The former Disney tween queen certainly followed through on those plans. After visiting the Chanel boutique on Bond Street for some serious retail therapy, she posed with six large and five smaller bags from the high-end retailer and tweeted a photo with the caption, "The damage is done." Not much damage, though, considering the singer is worth an estimated $120 million. less

On a recent trip to London Miley Cyrus shared a photo of herself on Twitter posing amongst multiple bags from the chic and wildly expensive Chanel store. Interestingly, the "We Can't Stop" singer showing off her shopping splurge isn't shocking because stars advertising their wealth for their social media followers has become common practice. Lots of celebrities take the slogan "if you got it, flaunt it" super seriously and document their conspicuous consumption for lesser off fans to drool over (I've been looking through lavish photos for hours now and it's making me doubt my career choice-should've been a reality star!). From private yachts and planes to custom cars and jewels the rich and famous present it all for the world to see-some with Instagram filters to boot. Check out some of the most obnoxious, beautiful, detestable, drool-worthy and luxurious photos from celebs found on social media.
