Would you pay $80,000 for a Barbie doll? Maybe if you’re Beyonce or Jay-Z. Famous couple have splashed out £50,0000 ($80,000) on a Barbie doll for their daughter’s first birthday. Their little princess, Blue Ivy isn’t aware of precious gift, but her parents can boast with that special customized doll, adorned with 160 diamond gems as well as white gold jewellery.
To be everything in the same luxury and extravagant style, this ultra-rich singers also threw a lavish princess-themed party for close family and pals to mark her special day. The unforgetable party in New York included $96,000 of white and pink roses as decorations and a cake costing $2,000. Another $33,000 went into accessories and toys for Blue Ivy‘s guests, including jewellery sets, princess costumes and playhouses. Adults lucky enough to be in attendance were given elaborate goodie bags including concert tickets and engraved gold pens with Blue Ivy and each guest’s name on them.
An insider said, “Nothing’s been too big or expensive for their little princess. They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl. It’s hard to imagine how they can top this next year — or what her Sweet Sixteen will be like.”
Blue Ivy already has a million-dollar suite at the Brooklyn’s Barclay Center, a $400,000 beach house, and now this. So, it’s hard not to be spoiled.
