Another celebrity who's no stranger to dressing her toddler in the finest designer looks? Kylie Jenner. On Oct. 1, the reality TV star and beauty mogul took to Instagram to share a pic of daughter Stormi Webster wearing a baby pink Hermes backpack that retails for $12,000.

It's everything wrong with everything." Bethenny, who received some backlash for her comment given her own affluence, defended her remark, responding, "I'm no stranger to an @Hermes_Paris bag & have a daughter & luxury cars, but flaunting (under the guise of a back to school post) during a pandemic & the greatest unemployment crisis in our lifetime is a choice." Bethenny was just one of many people who shared their disapproval of Kylie's decision to flaunt her 2-year-old daughter's pricey backback.
According to a report from the The Wall Street Journal, famed James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan listed his 12,500-square-foot Malibu home for a cool $100 million in late September, making it the eighth most expensive home on the market in Los Angeles County. Pierce reportedly gave his wife, journalist and filmmaker Keely Shaye Brosnan, free reign to create her fantasy space for them. "I said to Keely, 'Go build your dream house.' And she did," he told the Wall Street Journal. The result? A Thai-style house inspired by Pierce's 1997 film "Tomorrow Never Dies," which was shot in Thailand. While they raised their two sons at their Malibu pad, after 18 years, Pierce and Keely are ready to say goodbye to one beachfront view in exchange for another — they've since been spending more and more time at their property in Hawaii. For Pierce, "home is very much here in the islands."
