One of the most hyped days of the holiday season is fast approaching and shoppers everywhere are gearing up to score the best deals. The day after Thanksgiving, otherwise known as Black Friday, is the official day of splurge for shopaholics everywhere. Capping off this busy weekend is Cyber Monday, which offers great deals for those who wish to skip the long lines and shop at the comfort of their own home. So, in celebration of this glorious day of shopping (and splurging), BollyCurry has put together a list of Bollywood females who love shopping!

Sonam Kapoor

First on our list is B-Town's fashionista, Sonam Kapoor. Sporting high-end brands such as Armani, Prada and Burberry, Ms. Kapoor is undoubtedly one of the most fashionable stars of today. So, there is little surprise that she enjoys shopping for these wonderful pieces of clothing just as much as she enjoys wearing them. When it comes to shopping, Sonam doesn't discriminate; she enjoys shopping in Goa and Mumbai just as much as she likes hitting the streets in Paris and New York. Every shopaholic has splurged on more than one occasion and Sonam is no different - the Bvlgari watch she purchased in the Caribbean islands was one pricey item, but it is her most cherished buy to date.

Priyanka Chopra

This list is incomplete without the multitalented model-actor-singer, Priyanka Chopra, making an appearance. This style diva has a serious fetish. Whenever Priyanka goes on a shopping spree, she has to buy at least one pair of shoes otherwise her shopping experience remain incomplete. Ms. Chopra is well known for her taste in designer footwear. This shoe-crazy actor has often been spotted at various promotional events while sporting shoes from the luxury shoe brand, Christian Louboutin. One pair of Louboutins she wore while promoting her single "In My City", cost a whopping Rs 265,000.  Another luxury shoe brand Piggy Chops likes, Jimmy Choo, averages upwards of Rs. 40,000.

Karisma Kapur

Karisma Kapur, the actor turned fashion icon, is the celebrity of choice to walk the runway these days. However, this fashionable mother of two is not at all brand conscious. So, where does this self-proclaimed shopaholic like to go shopping? Goa.  Karisma has mentioned that Goa is one of her favorite shopping spots because she can get "funky" things. Internationally, this style diva likes to shop in two of the fashion capitals of the world - Paris and Milan.

Lara Dutta 

This former Miss. Universe is no newcomer to fashion and has admitted to being known as a compulsive shopaholic among her inner circle of friends. She started her splurging ways at an early age and bought her first Chanel tweed jacket at the age of 17, quickly followed by black dress from Azzedino Alain in Paris at the age of 19. Over the years, Lara Dutta has splurged in more than one occasion and like many of the celebs in this list, shoes are her fashion obsession. Her impressive - and undoubtedly expensive - shoe collection features pieces from Manolo Blahnik, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutins, and Jimmy Choos. In addition to the designer labels, Lara also enjoys spending money at River Island, Topshop and Zara. Bombay Electric is her go to fashion spot in Mumbai.

The final celeb on our list is the epitome of effortless fashion, Kalki Koechlin. This laid back fashionista is also a hesitant shopaholic. While Kalki won't admit to being a shopaholic, she does say that she loves shopping at street shops where she can spend hours at a time. She swears by high-street fashion and loves shopping for vintage clothes in boutiques in London. So, you must wonder what made Kalki earn a spot on this list. The answer - shoes! She has admitted to having a major shoe fetish. Her love of shoes has become a problem to the point where she has run out of room in her closet to store her massive collection of shoes of over 60 pairs. Now that is a lot of shoes!

So there you have it, the list of Bollywood shopaholics. Did anyone surprise you with their splurging ways? Let us know in the comments section below.
