Oh how I dream of the day that I will finally be able to sit in any seat (much less the front row) during the famed Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, held twice a year in NYC. It's definitely on my bucket list, but did you know that celebrities were PAID to sit in the front row? Were many of us so naive to think that most of these celebrities actually enjoyed fashion shows and clamored to get invitations to them?? Really, I would think because of your appreciation for the fashion, the designer and all that goes along with it, is the reason you would want to attend fashion shows. It's official celebrities get everything! Is it not enough they already get free clothes, products, etc.?!?
The good team over at www.fashionista.com got the inside scoop and I'm sharing it with you.
The ultimate Fashion "IT" girl, RAKES in the DOUGH, she's top tier over all the celebrities and gets a WHOPPING $100K (or more) a show!
Rihanna ($100,000 or more)
Beyonce ($80,000-$100,000) - now we all know Beyonce is NOT going to wear anything fashionable that she sees at these shows, this is really a waste of money! (still love you though Bey!)
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen ($80,000 each)
Julianne Moore ($60,000)
Maggie Gyllanhal ($60,000) - Really?!?!? Whose inspired by her fashion sense?
Chloe Sevigny ($60,000 or more)
Jennifer Lopez (circa 2005: $80,000; circa 2010: $30,000) - J-Lo took a nice pay cut, wonder why??
Colin Firth (pre-A Single Man: $5,000; post-A Single Man: $15,000)
Blake Lively ($50,000)
Leighton Meester ($40,000)
Hillary Duff ($40,000)
Other Gossip Girl cast members ($25,000 a piece)
Jared Leto ($25,000)
Cliven Owen ($10,000)
Kristen Bell (unpaid, but airfare, makeup and clothing are taken care of) - I wonder how she feels about this compared to the other B-list stars.
Kim Kardashian ($35,000-$50,000)
Amanda Bynes ($25,000-$30,000)
Eliza Dushku (unpaid, but airfare, makeup and clothing are taken care of)
Paris Hilton (free or UNINVITED)
Jersey Shore cast (UNINVITED)
America’s Next Top Model Winners (free)
I wonder if the UNINVITED celebrities can pay there way in???
