Do celebs get paid to sit on the front row of fashion events?

Do celebs get paid to sit on the front row of fashion events? I must admit it was a little odd seeing One Directions Harry Styles cosying up with Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese and Gold Medal winning athlete Victoria Pembleton at Burberrys show at London Fashion Week. But is there more to it?





According to The Hollywood Reporter, there’s alot more to it. As they argue celebs are actually getting paid to attend the events. The HWP reports:

"Spoiler alert: Few stars are attending just for the love of it anymore. There’s a reason A-listers plant their fashionable fannies at fashion shows (center front is the celebrity zone; editors get side front seats). It’s all about green — and we’re not talking the color of the season. Behind every Birkin bag is an agenda — and most are negotiated in advance, in a more corporate way than ever before. With major Hollywood talent agencies hiring personal appearance agents to negotiate these deals, stars promoting fashion shows have become a business similar to Olympians endorsing cereal."





 

It's been reported that Rihanna was paid £50k to attend Karl Lagerfelds AW12 collection in Paris and that "The Help" film star Jessica Chastain was paid almost £500k to do a selection of photos for an Armani show.   Fashionista.com published a pay list in 2010 indicating that Beyonce received up to £60k to be on a front row seat and both Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian were gifted almost £30,000 each. 

 

 

Again these are all rumours but if this were true you can't really blame the celebs taking a pay check and having a nice day out. But is it a marketing tool for the fashion houses. With Dita Von Teese attending the latest burberry show does this give a brand more column inches in the news papers and thus more exposure.

To really make any outfit stand out from the crowd you'll need a statement necklace. It can turn a simple LBD into something special.  Below are my top picks.

Craziest Look of the Week!

I think when it comes to wacky and crazy looks Lady Gaga knows best. But I think she's  taken cartoon couture onto a whole new level. She was spotted in this Comme Des Garcons dress at the Park Hyatt Vendome Hotel in Paris. It's one of those dresses that struggles from catwalk to highstreet.

Fashion Disaster!

She's a stylist more commonly known for styling it out against Gok Wan, but Brix Smith-Start got it seriously wrong when she attended the Louise Gray Show SS13 Collection at London Fashion Week. 

 

 

The look  is far too busy, the shape swamps her and does her no favours, she needs to start all over again! Back to Basics and she should of known better!!!

Who Wore it Best! Lowe v Lezark

Daisy Lowe Vs Leigh Lezark: Who Wore it Best





Model Daisy Lowe wore the Topshop Jumper at the Unique SS13 show. She teamed her jumper with black shorts, statement silver jewellery and Black wedged boots. 

 

 

Whereas model and DJ Leigh Lezark wore the very same jumper to the H&M launch in Paris. With a very simular style to Daisy, Leigh added slightly longer leather shorts, knee high boots and a mini clutch bag.
