What did the people that seem to have everything get this Christmas?
According to reports, Tom Cruise enjoyed a bumper Christmas crop thanks to some serious splurging by his missus. Katie Cruise (nee Holmes) was spotted in the midst of a buying binge that included a $30,000 rose-gold Cartier wristwatch, a black Giorgio Armani suit, Gucci snakeskin sneakers for $990, a Prada ski coat for $1,395 and four pairs of Barker Black handmade English shoes at $825 each.
Victoria Beckham famously claimed in 2005 never to have read a book. Hubbie David may not have heard this. According to The Sun, he bought his wife a book for the holidays – but in true Beckham style, this was no ordinary book. He bought Victoria ‘Una Grande Storia Italiana – Valentino Garavani’ a celebration of the work of designer Valentino. The book comes in a silk-covered clamshell box that is tinted in Valentino red. Inside, the 738-page book includes drawings, magazine shoots, advertisements, portraits of Valentino, and documentary photographs. The Collector’s Edition is limited to 2,000 individually numbered copies, each signed by Valentino and sells for $1,000. At least if Victoria doesn’t read it she can check out the pretty pictures.
As for Mariah Carey, the holidays mean jewelry. She spent Xmas in Aspen, happily posing outside her parent’s jewelry store.
