Here at Racked, we're dedicating this week to the kind of fantastical shopping that most of us only get to experience in dreams (or at 80%-off sample sales). Taking a page from casino parlance, we'll be talking a lot about "whales," those big spenders who feel perfectly comfortable dropping tens of thousands of dollars every night on roulette, or, in our case, on Cartier. Welcome to Whale Week 2013.
Where would reality TV be without a whole bunch of filthy rich celebrities ready and willing to invite cameras into their private homes? That's a world we don't want to live in, friends, but here now, a world we do want to live in—the cuckoo crazy world of MTV Cribs, where celebrities of all variety and taste levels (yes, Mariah Carey, we're looking at you) offer a glimpse into their private world and wardrobes. For your voyeuristic pleasure, we give you this supercut of the best MTV Cribs closets of all time. From Macy Gray's wackadoodle hat collection to Kelly Roland's doggy wardrobe (it's what it sounds like), enjoy the madness after the jump.
