There's a reason we idolize celebrities — they live in the lap of luxury! Wonderwall.com is rounding up this month's wildest celebrity tales of excess, starting with one about "Hustlers" star Jennifer Lopez. We know J.Lo's love don't cost a thing, but her overalls are a different story! In September 2019, the star stepped out in a pair of white overalls by Brunello Cucinelli that have an insane price tag of $1,235. Yep, that's more than a thousand dollars for a pair of plain white overalls. The singer-actress rocked the ridiculously expensive piece of clothing with a simple black tank top underneath. Keep reading for more ways the stars are nothing like us…

Everything Kim Kardashian West touches turns to gold. The most recent example of this? Her SKIMS Solutionwear line that launched in September 2019 sold $2 million worth of product in just a few minutes. Traffic to the SKIMS site was so massive that right before the sale was scheduled to go live, Kim's team actually had to delay the launch for an hour to make sure the site could handle all the customers. The successful start is reminiscent of her KKW Beauty line launch back in 2017 when she sold $14.4 million worth of product and sold out in less than three hours.
While we're lucky if our husbands remember to make reservations, Dwayne Johnson's wife has the luxury of knowing her hubby can shut down an entire restaurant so they can have a meal together. The Rock took over a restaurant in Hawaii at the end of August in order to have a very private meal with his new wife, then took to Instagram to share the experience, which he called "wildly surreal" because he was able to "sit in the middle of a restaurant undisturbed, eat, have drinks, watch TV's [sic] above the bar and just relax and enjoy company" for the first time in public in years. For good measure the superstar added that he would "never complain about fame" but just wanted to share that it was "nice" to "steal a moment in public like this."

How did Angela Bassett ring in her 61st birthday? Well, it wasn't like a regular 61 year old, that's for sure! The star blew out candles on a broccoli cake — a pile of broccoli with a candle in the middle — that she confessed on "The Late Late Show" was "not the best ever." But maybe that's why she looks so great for her age?
Imagine having the power to revive a small business! Kacey Musgraves used her massive fame for good in late August while on tour in Los Angeles. The star stopped by a tiny store called Tom's One Hour Photo in L.A.'s Koreatown where she heard how the owner's business had slowed in recent years because of the rise of digital photos, so she helped launch an Instagram account for the place, sparking some serious attention that was focused on the small business. The shop's new Instagram account has more than 75,000 followers and Kacey has updated fans to let them know that Tom's business is booming.
When you first started dating your significant other, what did you get them for their birthday? Well, "Flip or Flop" star Tarek El Moussa surprised his new flame, "Selling Sunset" star Heather Rae Young, with a brand new Ferrari for her 32nd birthday in September 2019 complete with a giant bow. Tarek explained that he'd asked Heather about her dream car on their first date just a few months earlier and wanted to gift her with that exact ride.
Tarek El Moussa wasn't the only reality star who gifted his girl with a flashy car in 2019. Scott Disick had a brand new Aston Martin with a bow on top waiting for his love, Sofia Richie, on her 21st birthday on Aug. 24, 2019. Sofia seemed very appreciative of the extravagant gift, taking to Instagram to show it off, writing, "Wow wow wow Best bf award."
If you're not rich and famous, don't bother competing with Keith Urban for the best son award! In August 2019, it emerged that the country crooner had bought his mother a $1 million three-bedroom apartment in Australia, complete with ocean views.
Aaron Paul proved that stars are nothing like us when it comes to throwing 40th birthday parties. The actor shelled out a reported $300,000 to ring in his milestone 40th b-day in the Dominican Republic alongside "Breaking Bad" co-star Bryan Cranston, wife Lauren Paul and other pals. The group stayed at the Ani Private Resorts Dominican Republic estate for 12 nights and enjoyed activities like swimming, snorkeling and kayaking during the getaway.
Oh, to have the closet of Ice-T and Coco Austin's little one! Coco revealed to Us Weekly in September 2019 that their 3-year-old daughter, Chanel Marrow, has "probably a hundred [pairs of] shoes." She explained that her toddler already likes to pick out her own footwear, which must be a feat since she has so many.
How much damage have you racked up on Postmates? While most of us tend to order the occasional burrito or pizza, Kendall Jenner dines on much more elaborate delivery cuisine than the rest of us. In September 2019, the service revealed that she once racked up a $1,219 bill from a sushi place and to date had spent more than $10,000 on food from the app!
While most people couldn't even dream of dropping $14 million on their home, Kanye West reportedly spent that much for a vacation property. The rapper recently bought a massive estate outside Cody, Wyoming, which includes a ranch and 4,500 acres dotted with eight "lodging units," per TMZ, plus two freshwater lakes, a restaurant, an event center and even a place to host meetings. We're just waiting for our invite!
Have you ever heard of babysitting a car? In September 2019, it was reported that Tracy Morgan paid a bartender to keep an eye on his $2 million Bugatti while he ate dinner in New York City. The comedian reportedly gave $100 to the employee who'd just finished his shift at Carmine's Italian Restaurant. While Tracy dined on fried calamari and chicken and veal parmigiana, the bartender made sure the pricey vehicle — which was hit by another car minutes after Tracy drove it off the lot in June 2019 — was safe and sound.
When Priyanka Chopra planned new hubby Nick Jonas's 27th birthday festivities in September 2019, she took advantage of their celebrity status to organize a seriously elaborate game of touch football: Nick and his friends and family members got to play at Chicago's Soldier Field, the home of the Chicago Bears. He later shared a pic on social media.
We're used to hearing about the Kardashian-Jenner children's elaborate lifestyles courtesy of their famous moms, but this time it was Scott Disick's turn to spoil daughter Penelope. The reality TV star turned the 7-year-old girl's room into a pink dream with a very hefty price tag: $20,000. Among the expensive additions? A sleek lamp, an alpaca fur rug and a portrait by the Kaplan twins.
While most people waited in long drive-thru lines at Popeyes to give the fast food joint's new chicken sandwich a try, stars like Diplo got extra-special treatment. The chain heard that the DJ-producer wanted to try the hard-to-get menu item so execs sent a private jet filled with the sandwiches in his direction. Diplo took to Instagram to reveal the elaborate stunt, adding, "Wendy's your move," to a photo caption, alluding to the social media feud between the two restaurants. No word on what this fancy delivery service cost the food chain (or if there were any apologies for all those carbon emissions).
A Mercedes G-Wagon typically runs over $100,000, but for Travis Scott, that simply wasn't expensive enough. Nope, the rapper instead wanted a rare edition of the car — the Maybach G650 Landaulet — which cost him a cool $1.6 million. That's 10 times the usual price, but that's probably because it's one of only 99 ever created.
When Taylor Swift heard about a 16-year-old fan who was battling cancer, she reached into her pockets and donated to the teen's GoFundMe. Trinity Foster's page had a fundraising goal of $10,000, which Taylor gave her along with a sweet note that read: "Trinity, I saw photos of your album release party that you did in your hospital room and wanted to say thank you for being so kind and supportive! I hope I can give you a hug in person soon, but in the meantime I wanted to send you this and all my love. Your friend, Taylor."
