How much do celebrities get paid to attend fashion shows?

Alright, I need to say that I am not sure if this is 100% true or not. This was reported on Fashionista and I wanted to relay it to my readers but I also wanted to wait and make sure there was some sort of truth to it. There hasn’t been a great deal of buzz about this and usually if someone reports something falsely on the blogs the PRs go nuts! So without further delay…here is the list of what celebrities are paid to sit front row on catwalks for leading designers (My comments are in red):
Rihanna($100,000 or more)
Beyonce ($80,000-$100,000)
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen ($80,000 each)
Julianne Moore ($60,000)
Maggie Gyllanhal ($60,000)
Chloe Sevigny ($60,000 or more)
Jennifer Lopez (circa 2005: $80,000; circa 2010: $30,000)
Lindsay Lohan (circa 2006: $60,000; circa 2010; UNINVITED)
Colin Firth(pre-A Single Man: $5,000; post-A Single Man: $15,000)
Blake Lively ($50,000) – I would put her top of the list now ahead of Rihanna. Blake is the girl every girl and woman wants to dress like. Seems she comes at a bargain price. Book her now people!
Leighton Meester ($40,000)
Hillary Duff ($40,000)
Other Gossip Girl cast members ($25,000 a piece)
Jared Leto ($25,000) – I’m not really sure why out of all the men in Hollywood you would want Jared Leto sitting in our you show at all. We’ll give this one a pass, thank you very much. Go sell “homeless” look somewhere else.
Cliven Owen ($10,000)
Kristen Bell (unpaid, but airfare, makeup and clothing are taken care of)


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) – I sure hope this is true. If I see any of them sitting front and centre I might not be able to hold back.
