There are just two things true about a celebrity’s fashionable urban wear. First, they’re made by a famous designer. And second, they’re outrageously expensive. Can you imagine the prices of an otherwise normal-looking jacket worn by a popular celebrity? Read on as we feature a rundown of the most expensive celebrity jackets:
1. Michael Jackson’s Thriller Jacket
This red with black accent jacket currently holds the title of being the most expensive jacket in the world. It’s the same one the King of Pop used for his ‘Thriller’ music video. Its highfalutin price of $1.8 million at an auction is dignified by the fact that the proceeds will be used to help sick children in hospitals.
2. Bruce Lee’s Fur-Lined Jacket
This Bruce Lee jacket is the same one he wore for the film, “Game of Death”. Incidentally, it was also his last film. The blue fur-line jacket was made in 1973. It was sold at an auction in Hong Kong, along with a few of his other memorable possessions.
3. Jimi Hendrix’s Military Green Jacket
Rock icon Jimi Hendrix has this particular military grey jacket customized for him before the time of his death in 1970. It was also the last jacket he wore. It was stored for 20 years after his death, only to resurface at an auction for a nerve-wrecking price of $39,000. It was good for a memorabilia though.
4. Kim Kardashian’s Balmain Leather Blazer
The paparazzi loves Kim Kardashian to the extent that she gets a momentous amount of attention every time she walks the street. For this particular shot, Kim was shown wearing a Balmain leather jacket. Kimmy definitely has the money to spend and a fashion reputation to uphold. So let’s just leave it at that.
5. Victoria Beckham’s Wool Twill Coat
Ex-Spice Girls and now fashion designer Victoria Beckham is expected to breathe fashion everyday of her life. She looked stunning in this otherwise simple outfit, which cost her lots of bucks, especially the jacket. But if you’re husband is a famous football player, you shouldn’t, at any time, lose your fashion sense.
6. Gisele Bundchen’s Helmut Lang Biker Jacket
If you’re a supermodel like Gisele Bundchen, a two-grand jacket purchase is almost a daily expense. She sported this Helmut jacket almost perfectly one fine day. But hell, she doesn’t wear anything ugly. Even a two-penny shirt will look good on her.
7. Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s Stella McCartney Jacket
Former Victoria’s Secret Angel Rosie Huntington Whitely remained fashionable as ever even if she no longer models for the brand. Her street wear fashion choices looked awesome on her, especially this one. She’s sporting a Stella McCartney jacket that looked outrageously stunning.
8. Julianna Hough’s Joie Jacket
Julianna Hough loves dogs and it definitely shows. But what’s more notable is the leather jacket she’s wearing, which looks nice and expensive. She’s on her way to the airport sporting a nice getup and nice pups. Overall, the three of them will surely win your heart.
