Star Power


With the Emmy Awards airing this past weekend, I thought it might be fitting to do a star studded post. Hollywood celebrities have made their mark on magazine covers, ad campaigns and editorials over the years. The shift to using A-listers in lieu of models was driven by the the cultural obsession with celebrities and they were identifiable to the general public, in effect driving magazine sales. I read today here that there may a gradual decline in using big stars...possible reasons: celebrities are overexposed these days, therefore have less of a sales impact as they used to, fashion houses and labels are more cost conscious leading them to reconsider booking a celebrity. Whatever the direction may be, these pics of our favorite celebrities are gorgeous nonetheless.

Neekoh said...

Interesting... I definitely saw the decline in using celebs but the reasons are new to me. Either way, I always feel like I can relate to celebrities a bit more than models. They're just into fashion, but don't necessarily have the body for it. :)

XXo,
