Welcome to the world of Julia Stakhiva – Rich Kid of Instagram and one of the richest in London.
The 23-year-old, who is from Ukraine but lives in Kensington, thinks nothing of blowing £200,000 a year on designer clothes, and she’s so well off that she flies to Moscow every two months just to have her hair cut by her favourite stylist.
She even books out the whole salon so it’s available for her anytime she arrives.
It’s safe to say Julia is not your average London student. She has a wardrobe worth £1.5 million, hires an assistant to make sure she doesn’t get too drunk on nights out, and has been having fillers and lip injections from the tender age of 18 – all funded by the bank of mum and dad.
If you haven’t guessed it yet, Julia values looks above all else. According to The Daily Mail, she splurges £30,000 a year on facial fillers, cheek reduction surgery, semi-permanent make-up, teeth whitening, lash extensions, and injections into her scalp to maintain her shiny hair.
She told The Daily Mail:
Anyone can be rich but not everyone can be beautiful.
In my circles, I know that wealthy people aren’t jealous of shoes and handbags – they are jealous of other people’s looks. That’s why it’s important for me to look beautiful, be skinny and have nice hair.
I believe everyone should start cosmetic surgery at a young age. It’s better to save up your money for beauty treatments instead of spending it on food.
Some people are not brave enough to have surgery. They think it’s better to sit at home, eat pizza and judge me. But I just think well, you eat pizza and I look pretty.
Apparently though, you can’t blame her for thinking like that, her lavish lifestyle is funded and backed by her ‘very supportive parents’, who support her in her quest to constantly improve herself and her looks.
She added: “It’s my life’s goal to become successful. I’m not suitable for an office job because of how well I dress and how educated I am. My friends and family see me as leader so I don’t think I could be employed by anyone after university.”
Although she gets quite a bit of negativity, Julia claims she enjoys it, saying that people criticising her actually shows her that she’s an extraordinary person.
We’re all free to come to our own assumptions, I suppose.
