Instagram has become a platform for rich people to show off their wealth, big brands to market their products and the average Joe to post snaps of their everyday life in the perfect pose.

But these rich kids take it one step further by sharing every new purchase they make with their thousands upon thousands of Instagram followers – and, as you can imagine, it’s constant!

They are continuously flaunting their wealth in the coolest way possible, from lavish parties to private jet pampering, truly enjoying their lives to the fullest.

But can money really buy happiness?

To find out, take a look at how the top 10 rich kids of Instagram spend their time and judge for yourself!

10. Daria Radionova

IG followers: 160k

Age: 25

Net worth: Unknown

Although rich kid Daria Radionova parades around London as a young elite, her background and family tree remain a shady topic. She strays away from talking about her family, saying that they are businesspeople from Moldova.

What we do know, however, is that her wealthy parents sent her to London to study and put her up in Knightsbridge. They also bought her a $68,000 (£53,120) Mercedes, which she then encrusted in Swarovski crystals, costing an additional $20,000 (£15,624). She then auctioned the car off and used the money to rebuild a dog shelter that had burnt down in London, and another one in Moldova. She later purchased a Lamborghini and covered it in Swarovski crystals, too.

What we can tell from her Instagram is that this posh princess splashes out on designer gear and pampers herself with lavish shoes and handbags for the world to admire.

Since then, his career has taken off - he was cast on the show Rich Kids of Beverley Hills in 2014 and later starred in his own spin-off reality show called EJNCY, but the success of the show was short-lived, ending after only six episodes.
