Harper Beckham never wears her $8000 worth of baby clothes twice, of course

Even though I cover Harper Beckham photos all the time, and I’m often talking about her awesome baby style (like she has anything to do about it!), I’ve never really noticed before now that Harper never wears the same baby clothes twice. But seriously, she never does. She always wears new, never-before-seen baby clothes. At least when she’s out in public, that is. Maybe she has a Baby Gucci romper or a Baby Chanel minidress that she always wears when she’s just chillin’ at home. But Radar and The Mail claim that Harper has NEVER been photographed in the same outfit twice, and that at 15 months old, her baby wardrobe is probably worth $8000.

Talk about being a baby fashionista! Little Harper Beckham has never been photographed in the same outfit twice, sometimes even upstaging her designer mom Victoria Beckham with her fashion ensembles.

The youngest of Victoria and David Beckham’s four children has a wardrobe estimated to be worth a stunning $8,000, according to The Daily Mail.

That’s four times more than the amount an average American adult woman spends on clothes.

Some examples from Harper’s fabulous closet: dresses by Mare Chantal ($156), Little Marc Jacobs ($285) and Stella McCartney Misty ($136), tights by Chloe ($48), and a sweater by Bonpoint ($160).

[From Radar]

Yeah… $8000? For real? I think it’s a lot more than that. The Mail has a much more extensive breakdown of What Harper Wore and how much all of those items cost. The Mail is great about doing breakdowns like that – they’ve famously done those cost-analysis breakdowns for Duchess Kate’s extensive wardrobe as well. The problem is that Kate’s wardrobe is being paid for by Prince Charles and “the people”. Harper’s wardrobe is being paid for by her mom and dad, plus I’m sure Harper gets freebies too. I can’t really fault Victoria for buying Harper so many expensive baby clothes – this was her dream, to have a daughter to spoil and dress like a doll. My only hope is that Posh is donating all of Harper’s gentle-worn clothes to some kind of charity.

    I love that she’s so defiantly chubby.

    That baby is so damn adorable I can’t stand it. Way too cute! :)
    I guess before we complain about how expensive and what a waste it is to spend money like that on babies clothing we really should get to the root of the matter that Celebrities ( sport stars etc ) get paid way too much for the actual work they do. Come on, it’s pretty gross when you think about it. Someone goes to set for 3 mths and ends up with a 15million dollar paycheck , that’s just insane. But yet you have other professions where you have people actually RUNNING into burning buildings to save lives and they are lucky to make 25,000 a year. It’s just a prime example of how messed up things really are. So in the thick of it is it crazy Harper has such expensive clothes for a baby? Yes of course but when you make multimillion dollar contacts for small bits of work I guess it all equals out doesn’t it?

    • Justyna says:

      It’s not ok, I agree, but if we think about athlets, actors or singers, if they weren’t paid this much, the money made by their games, movies or albums/concerts would go straight to the club owners, producers or music companies, who already make insane money. People choose to go the movies, buy an album or go to the concert (or buy Victoria Beckham’s or other person’s clothes and perfume), it’s not stolen or paid them from our taxes. Johnny Depp earned multiple million dollars for every Pirate movie because people in the entire world chose to go and pay for the tickets and there are millions of people who willigly pay for Taylor Swift’s albums and concert tickets. I have a bigger problem with politicians and royals, who we pay insane money unwillingly and we cannot do anything about it, while they make budget cuts and take away money from doctors, firemen or coal miners.

      • P.J. says:

        I disagree. If the stars were paid less, the price of movie tickets and sports games would fall, not be redistributed to others in the chain.

      • Jess says:

        Lol, no it wouldn’t. The price of anything depends on what people are willing to pay for it. Why would they charge people less, when people are willing to pay? Out of the goodness of their hearts? That’s not the way the world works, or capitalism anyway.

      • Me Too says:

        I agree with PJ. First, ironically, rich people get so much free it defies logic. Look at the US Open or Superbowl. The only people who can afford to buy tickets anymore to these events are wealthy. If you manage to go to one of these major sporting events yourself, it’s because you save up for a year or two so that you can afford the tickets let alone hotels etc. Corporations buy hundreds of tickets to give to their wealthy clients. Then, the venues themselves give wealthy people free entrance because they want them photographed at their events. It’s ridiculous!

        Along those lines, I’d bet most of the clothes Miss Harper is wearing are freebies either given to Victoria by the designers or by the stores she does business with. It’s the same everywhere. Look at awards shows. The dresses and jewlery most stars wear are either loaned or given to them. Anyone who presents at those award shows gets goody bags worth $100,000+. Closer to home–when you have money, banks don’t charge you for services they charge regular people. If you have enough money, you pay no service charges. It is illogical.

        I’ve worked in the non profit world for years. When rich people are invited to various events, they are usually comped because they won’t come otherwise.

        Rich people simply can’t lose at this point. Investor types like Romney have businesses where they win whether or not the businesses they buy survive or succeed. They make money if they bankrupt the company and close it and they make money if they keep it going.

        Look at all the failing CEOs–do any of them get fired without leaving with millions of dollars settlements? Do any of them get fired or asked to return bonuses when their companies lose money? NO. Instead, lower level employees–secretaries etc., lose their jobs to ensure that bonuses for the executives can be paid.

    • Kim says:

      Well the billions of people of exist on less than a dollar a day probably think its messed up that there are people who earn $25K a year when they only earn $ 300 year doing the same jobs teachers, nurses, etc

  3. the original bellaluna says:

    Such an adorable little Chubba-Wubba!!! :D But seriously, her wardrobe is worth more than Hubs’ car.

  4. Brown says:

    I live for pictures of Harper, she is adorable. Also the name “Harper” has been in my top three girls baby names for a while now. I do hope Posh is donating her older clothes… She probably is… I can’t imagine her just tossing them out.

    Does Posh not design baby clothes? I would have expected with Harper now her trying to tap into that market.

  5. tracking says:

    I really love the way this baby is dressed (setting aside the issue of cost). Beautiful, modern, feminine, but not frilly or uncomfortable. Just gorgeous.

  6. Cathy says:

    A baby doesn’t care what it wears. I think it’s ridiculous. Harpers cute as hell, but this is all to satisfy Poshs ego.

  7. Eleonor says:

    If I had all their money I would buy expensieve stuff too. We knew this was going to happen: Victoria wanted a baby girl to spoil the hell out of her!!
    Baby Harper is beyond adorable!!!

  8. spinner says:

    She is beyond adorable. *nibble, nibble*

    Victoria can do whatever she likes. That little girl is so loved.

  9. HadleyB says:

    If I had the money like Posh and Becks I would spend that much too, it’s too much fun dressing up little girls especially if only have one and the rest are boys.

    Now is it crazy? Yes, but they are such a classy looking family I adore it. I also think Harper gets a lot gratis — she is the perfect platform for awesome dressed baby to show off the clothes.

    But I am sure she spend a lot of her own $$ on it but I also know that if you are in the fashion industry, rarely do you pay full retail. The connections, favors, who you know, buyers, owners — she probably gets a lot of it free or heavily discounted and when she doesn’t – she can afford it.

    Carry on Harper, carry on…

  10. I.want.shoes says:

    If they can afford it, why not?

  11. SusieQ2 says:

    Sigh! I love this child and just want to nom nom on her chubby little limbs!!

    She is the image of her brother Brooklyn in the picture of her in the red (I think or maybe orange?) dress.

    And the one of her and David at Disneyland – those Minnie Mouse ears – makes my ovaries explode….

  12. Suze says:

    If she’s donating the clothes or recycling them somehow, it works for me.

  13. renee says:

    Her wardrope is worth almost as much as I make a year.

  14. HotPockets says:

    She has her mom’s b*tch face, but it’s adorable on a baby.

  15. sunnyinseattle says:

    I love my Diet.Coke most kids hate diet any pop. Suprised her son is drinking it. Or should I be? HAHA JK. ;-)

  16. The Original Mia says:

    Harper is so darn cute. Just want to pinch those cheeks and legs. I know she is spoiled rotten by everyone from David & Victoria to the her brothers.

  17. Tania says:

    I agree with Kaiser, her wardrobe is probably more than $8000. I have a 10 month old girl and I spend $300-400 per season, plus extra for the odd thing, shoes, jackets, coats, etc. Don’t forget you need to buy extra as they grow out of everything as well! I’ve already spent at least $1000 on her clothes and that is with supplementing with her gently used cousin’s clothes. None of the stuff I buy is crazy expensive, mostly Baby Gap and Old Navy. So yes, I think that figure is way too low.

  18. lrm says:

    I can’t hate on this. I think they are great parents; their children seem well adjusted and I remember reading an interview where Posh said her boys were ‘very well mannered,which I think is important’. And she scored permanent points with that.
    Meh. Seriously: they have that much money! And probably they do donate and help others…we don’t know how they spend their money. We do know some of it is spent on clothing, however….

    • rachel says:

      Agreed. I have no way of knowing and I am sure they have no shortage of help– but I imagine they are real parents and have real relationships with their kids and love them. She is a fashionista, of course she is going to have a ball dressing the baby girl up. So I can’t hate on it either. And I think the baby is adorable.

  19. Karen says:

    Am I the only one who doesn’t think she is the most beautiful baby? Not saying she’s ugly, but she ain’t the most beautiful either, IMO. I just don’t see what all the fuss is about her. She’s got her dad’s squinty eyes.

  20. Tuxedo Cat says:

    What a beautiful child. Anyone who’s had a baby knows that they grow so fast during this time that they seldom wear any clothes more than a few times…

  21. Samigirl says:

    Harper is totally cute! And if posh wants to get rid of some of those clothes, we LOVE hand me downs ;-)

  22. SRobin says:

    I just hope they don’t spoil the girl too much.. They keep this up and the girl will be another spoiled brat in 16 years crying because she only got a Mercedes for her birthday.

  23. oblivious says:

    Aww, she looks so much like beckam in the pic where they are both wearing blue! I love father/daughter pictures.

  24. some bitch says:

    That’s revolting. No baby needs $8000 worth of clothing, and they can wear it many, many times, damn it!

    This is especially disgusting when you consider how many young children in the UK aren’t getting enough to eat and are suffering under austerity measures. I’m sure Victoria Beckham thinks that’s fine and all, given she hasn’t eaten in years now, but when I hear about my friends being forced to go to food banks every month while this bitch spends thousands on her baby, I just can’t deal.

    • Duckie says:

      I’m sorry but what is she supposed to do? Don’t turn this into some personal oh my god the beckhams are SO rude and up themselves because they spend money they actually worked for on their kids. It’s not their fault that there are people in the world who can’t afford the same things they can. Why take your bitterness out on them?

  25. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    At this age, “never in the same clothes twice” is easy to do. Between hand-me-downs and new things I couldn’t pass up, I was finding out-grown clothes in drawers and closets still with tags on until my boys hit 4 or 5 years old (and we have nowhere near this kind of money). Shoes were the same. But my sister with younger boys loves it. And I love that my weak, sinful tendencies toward greed and hoarding when it comes to cute outfits for my boys actually help someone else. :)

  26. Mew says:

    And here we go, thinking that the world could be saved by putting milk cartons to different trash bin than egg shells. Materialism to the top level – I guess that must mean the same as happiness to some. Good for them.

  27. Nicolette says:

    First, I think she’s absolutely adorable. One of the cutest celeb babies I’ve seen.

    As for her wardrobe, it is their money and it is their prerogative to spend it as they wish. However, when I am seeing so many people in my area literally devastated by Superstorm Sandy, this kinda bothers me. When people are truly suffering, celebs flaunting their wealth is just tasteless to me.

    Believe me, my husband is a city worker and is out there helping with the clean up, and as he and his co-workers have stated, it is much worse than what you have seen on most tv reports. As one of his co-workers who served in Iraq said “Broad Channel looks as though it had been carpet bombed”. It’s cold here and there are people with no power or heat, their food is running out, gas lines are ridiculous, looting is occurring in some areas, and people have died including two young children ripped from their mother’s arms as she tried to escape Staten Island. Their bodies were found in a marsh the other day. They were 2 and 4 years old.

    Maybe if Posh has an $8,000 wardrobe laying around that her baby will never wear again, because God forbid a child is seen in the same outfit twice, she can donate it to the many children on the East Coast that are hurting right now.

    • mln76 says:

      Just saw your post yeah its tough here a good friend of mine had her apartment flooded she has a place to stay but literally lost everything..we are going to make sure she has what she needs but still reading this (and many of the blase comments) made me a bit angry.

      • Nicolette says:

        A friend that lives in Broad Channel has no idea if her home is still there, or if it’s being looted. She can’t get to it. Howard Beach was almost entirely flooded, no power and many have fish swimming in their basements. Looters are coming in as the National Guard sits on Cross Bay Blvd. It is an atrocity going on in one of the most densely populated areas of the country. People are saying it was not a matter of rising flood water, but so fast and furious it was like a tsunami. And my God what has happened to Staten Island. Sanitation crews are uncovering bodies, as they clean up. That our idiot mayor had to be shamed into canceling the marathon is incredible, (but I guess he’s happy that we can’t drink 16oz sodas anymore.) Please, anyone reading this help out if you can. So many need it.

  28. tabasco says:

    i am becoming increasingly acutely disgusted with celebrities and their clueless overpaid asses wasting loads of cash in the middle of all that is going on here in the U.S. it’s gross.

  29. mln76 says:

    Yeah its their money but I find it gross…baby is adorable but that is besides the point.

  30. ctkat1 says:

    We all knew once Victoria got a girl, she was going to go crazy about her wardrobe. Her three boys seems to live exclusively in soccer jerseys, so buying all of those adorable rompers and dresses must be a treat. I’m less outraged about this simply because it’s less that I assumed Victoria would spend on Harper’s wardrobe!

    She’s such an adorable baby- those chubby limbs are to die for.

  31. Melissa says:

    I find all of the venom on this post odd. It’s not like Victoria was strutting around NYC with H7 in expensive clothes as tons of people suffered as a result of Sandy – these pics were all taken before Sandy.

    I am most definitely not a VB fan, and do think the distribution of wealth is horribly skewed in this country and needs to get back to some balance. I just think it goes so far beyond the money celebrities spend on clothes – it’s what we pay bankers, CEOs, hedge fund managers, and how we tax (or don’t tax) these folks. And what we do with the money we do collect in taxes – spend it on wars rather than investing in the infrastructure or people of our nation.

    • mln76 says:

      No venom just stating what’s happening in our neck of the woods and why reading this story makes me more upset then it would a week ago…I really don’t understand how talking about people who’s home has been destroyed illicits the defense of a celebrity and zero well wishes :(

      • Melissa says:

        Trust me, you have my well wishes. I grew up in NY and my entire family still lives there, including my 74-year old mother who is still without power as of this morning. It is definitely worse out there in some areas than they are reporting.

        I just don’t see the connection between Sandy and celebrities spending huge sums of money on things. Half of the posts on this website are about the fashion that a celebrity wore to an event, and these adults regularly wear dresses and carry handbags that cost thousands of dollars, so spending $300 on a dress for a baby is the least of it. And whether Posh put H7 in an $8 Circo dress from Target or some $300 Burberry number won’t put my mother’s power back on , put gas in her car, bring peoples’ homes back that were washed away or burned down, or give that mother whose 2 children were washed away from her her kids lives back. This site is an escape from all of the awful crap that happens in the real world.

  32. Snowpea says:

    That pic of Harper in the Minnie Mouse ears is just beyond ridiculously cute. I have two boys, I would LOVE a baby girl like little HB.

    Posh and David are worth something like 250 million bucks. They are loaded. They live in an entirely different stratosphere to you and I. 8000 bucks is nuthin’ to them. PLUS it’s prob all given to Posh as gifts.

    I remember reading somewhere that when Posh came home from the hospital they found a whole lot of deliveries from different firms who had sent prams, change tables, mobiles, etc etc all desperate to have Posh wheeling her baby round in their product.

    At the time David said they had sent the whole lot off to charity.

    I reckon these two are good, decent people. And their kids are a credit to them.

  33. nelle says:

    She’s sooo cute! But i think its ridiculous to spend that much on a baby’s clothing. Then again, I’m not rich. So my mindset is totally different from theirs.

    A similar article was posted here a few months ago about how much Beyonce spent on Blue Ivy’s shoes and clothing.
    The responses were almost all very
    negative. Most people were disgusted with them. Not sure why this situation is any different.

  34. madashell says:

    Everyone has made lots of good points here, particularly the person who pointed out that many of Harper’s items are “donated” very enthusiastic designers who would probably pay her to wear them. What Victoria does with those clothes is her business, and I’m sure it’s not too different from what all mothers do: put some away for Harper’s children, pass some along to friends and relatives, then donate others to a pet charity.
    One hundred percent, I’m sure the Beckhams donate more to charity than we will ever be able to, if only for the tax advantages.
    Finally: “they” don’t rub her 8000 dollar wardrobe in our proletarian faces: paps take those pictures, sell them to this website, because even when all of New York and New Jersey is freezing and starving to death, most of us who are not, still enjoy reading about celebrity babies. “They” are not responsible for that, we are.

  35. Liza Jane says:

    I have actually seen Harper wear that blue romper twice…once at the soccer match and then again when Posh took her out!! At this age,most babies grow out of things in 2 weeks, and I am certain, given Victoria and David’s upbringings and their values regarding their boy’s behaviour that they donate all the time!

  36. JFerber says:

    I tend to doubt Victoria Beckham would donate her baby’s clothes to anyone, just because the thought would never occur to her. I have never heard of her doing any sort of charity work (unlike her husband, who is known to do so). I do believe she loves her kids and her husband, but she is so incredibly self-involved that her thoughts would never penetrate the luxurious bubble in which she exists. If anyone can prove me wrong, please do so. I’d love to hear it.

  37. citygirlsf says:

    Harper’s hairstyle in the first pic is one I’ve been trying for years to achieve.

    *sigh*

  38. wild flower says:

    That disdainful glare makes her look just like her mom…I’m thinking she should have her first date with Rachel Zoe’s equally cute and fashionable kid.

  39. Lemonade says:

    It makes me a little sad that her closet is worth about as much as the car i just bought this weekend for commuting to work. BUT its her money and if its within her budget she can do what she wants. thats my take on it.

  40. Amanda H says:

    I will take the castoffs, and once my child outgrows them, consign them and pay off a car! ;-)

  41. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Tiny smock dresses and rompers should not be $200-300 each. Even just downgrading (for Posh) to BabyGap..from Chanel, Gucci etc., would save thousands. She could still look just as cute and then not so much would be wasted on the label. It’s a crime they even make high-end baby clothes! They grow so quickly. Ppl are stupid to waste money on such stupid things that dont matter.

  42. Lisa says:

    What’s this thing with never wearing anything twice? I’m pretty into clothes, and that’s one thing I’ve never understood. Spend money on the expensive stuff that will last longer so that you CAN wear it more than once without it falling apart on you.
