Just how active are you on Instagram? Active enough to recognize some of the Rich Kids of Instagram?

The phrase – Rich Kids of Instagram – refers to children of wealthy parents who show off their extremely privileged lives on Instagram with photos of private jets, yacht parties, exotic vacations, expensive bottles of wines/champagne and excessively expensive vehicles to their thousands of followers.

The lifestyle of the rich kids of Instagram got so popular that a show chronicling their lives – Rich Kids of Beverly Hills – debuted on E! on the 19th of January, 2014.

Even among these ‘elite’, there are some who have more name recognition than others.

Here’s a list of some of the rich kids on Instagram you ought to recognize:

  1. Barron Hilton

Yes, that Hilton.

A list like this would not be worth much if I didn’t start with a Hilton.

Barron Hilton is the son of American businessman, Richard Hilton and brother to celebutantes – Nicky and Paris Hilton.

Unlike his sisters, Barron has relatively managed to stay out of the public spotlight.

But try as he might, the hotel heir has still managed to capture the attention of many Instagram followers through his posts showcasing his lavish lifestyle.


The Loyola Marymount University graduate is currently valued at $15 million.
