Living in Iran isn’t all that bad – at least if you belong to the top one percent. An Instagram account called "Rich Kids of Tehran" has made that fact abundantly clear.
The account purported to show "the world how beautiful Tehran and people from Tehran are," and featured photos of Iranian youths flaunting Rolexes and Maseratis, sunning themselves by the pool, and living the high-life in general, much like rich kids everywhere.
Although seven young Iranian received suspended prison sentences and 91 lashes for posting their rendition of Pharrell William’s “Happy” music video, the repercussions the Rich Kids of Tehran are likely to face are apparently non-existent.
Most interesting were the photographs showing skimpily-clad women, in flagrant violation of Iran’s dress code, which mandates a hijab, or head garb, for women. Other photographs even showed what appears to be alcohol, also illegal in the Islamic Republic. According to Business Insider, though house parties and drinking are part of the lifestyle of Iranian youth, these activities are done behind closed doors, and definitely not exposed so freely over the Internet.
However, according to insiders, many of the youths featured on "Rich Kids of Tehran" are the children of Iran’s business elite and are therefore untouched by the regime’s harsh hand.
In 2008, Singapore Airlines introduced their Suites Class, the most luxurious class of flying that is commercially available.
The Suites were exclusive to their flagship Airbus A380, and they go beyond flat beds by offering enclosed private cabins with sliding doors that cocoon you in your own little lap of luxury. The interior was designed by French luxury yacht designer Jean-Jacques Coste and comes along with a plush soft leather armchair hand-stitched by the Italian master craftsmen Poltrona Frau. Perhaps most well-known of all, Singapore Airlines became the first and only commercial airline with a double bed in the sky.
