Yes, They Get Paid To Sit There...

Stories invaded the fashion blogs today, covering the extent fashion designers will go (or pay) to have a celebrity sit front row at their show. Here's a list of the highest paid celebrities attending. Beware: the results may astound you.

             Rihanna: $100,00 or more
             Beyonce: $80,000- $100,000
             Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: $80,000 EACH
             Julianne Moore: $60,000
             Maggie Gyllenhall: $60,000
             Chloe Sevigny: $60,000

** Fun fact: In 2006, Lindsay Lohan was getting paid $60,000 to attend some of the fashion shows. Currently in 2010, she is uninvited. 

Rihanna is pictured above wearing a white Derek Lam blazer and matching pants at his store opening on Crosby St. NYC, back in May 2009. Being a Derek Lam intern, I am PRAYING she will come to the show in a couple weeks so I can see her in the flesh. I DIE. 


  1. Wow, I can not believe they get paid to sit there! That is an insane amount of money to attend. Oh, how I wish I was famous and someone would pay me to sit, look pretty, and see beautiful clothes walk down the runway.

  2. I'm OBSESSED with mary-kate and ashley. this is not really related, but i went to bloomy's and was so depressed to see the price tags on their elizabeth & james line! :(
