Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham is a regular fixture in supermarket tabloids. Technically, she should be ineligible for inclusion in this slideshow, as she and her husband, footballer David Beckham, have a collective net worth of only $271 million , well short of $1 billion. However, they engage in displays of conspicuous consumption that rank right up there with those of billionaires.
One such purchase was noted in February 2011 by The Daily Mail , who caught Beckham at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport carrying a custom-made gold iPhone. The device cost just under $36,000, and featured a photo of her dreamy athlete husband in all his shirtless glory as its wallpaper.
