"The entire event is a disconnect: a paean to luxury and excess - branded with names like Louis Vuitton and Prada - in a reeling global economy.
It has been marred and ridiculed and deemed an embarrassment. There has been no actual competition.”
-Ann Killion

"Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires."

- Steinbeck

"It is good to begin life poor; it is good to begin life rich — these are wholesome; but to begin it prospectively rich! The man who has not experienced it cannot imagine the curse of it.”

- Mark Twain

Wikipedia:
Celebutante … is generally used to refer to a young woman from a rich family who has received a large amount of media attention, primarily for her wealth and lifestyle. It differs from socialite, because celebutantes are also celebrities, and are generally famous for being famous. The term is currently used to describe individuals such as Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Kim Kardashian in entertainment journalism. Its coinage can be traced back to a 1939 Walter Winchell society column in which he used the word to describe prominent society debutante Brenda Frazier. The word appeared again in a 1985 Newsweek article about New York City’s clubland celebrities, focusing on the lifestyle of James St. James and Dianne Brill, who was crowned “Queen of the Night” by Andy Warhol.

People see this phenomenon as unhealthy, as cultural detritus; I see an achievement. The confluence of wealth, fame and female beauty was always going to be an irresistible combo.  You’ll find these girls in every generation. They’re a permanent fixture of the human condition. What was Helen of Troy or Marie Antoinette but a celebutante with political power? Now they’re reduced to sex tapes.
Royalty hasn’t gone anywhere. It’s merely been put in its proper place.
