Celebrities are no strangers to sitting front row at fashion week. Rihanna, Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, and so on and so forth are now reliable attendees at some of the biggest and most-hyped shows in NYC, Milan, London, Paris, etc. While some of these big names may actually be there to enjoy the show and fuel their genuine interest in the respective brands and collections, it doesn't mean some aren't paid to rub elbows with editors. But just how much do these celebs rake in for showing face?
According to The Sun, a little over $100,000 (or £60,000) can guarantee the attendance of the likes of Beyoncé and Rihanna. In addition to monetary payments, brands have been known to give celebs free reign over items from their current and upcoming collections. Lily Allen admitted back in 2007 that in exchange for attending Yves Saint Laurent's show, she was brought to the flagship store and given the go-ahead to grab whatever she wanted.
A hundred Gs to sit there for 15 minutes? Excuse us while we switch careers.
