THE COST OF LOOKING AMAZING ON THE RED CARPET- JAW DROPPING.


I Litereally am going to copy and paste this from Style.com.  I did have an idea of what things cost and the cat fight for the “IT” dress of fashions season. I was talking about this with my client over the weekend. Our main question was how much do stylists make for a single job working awards season. Question answered.

read on.

The celebrity stylist wants to be seen as a mix of fashion consultant and best friend, but the job is really more hustler-broker, netting a red-carpet day rate of $1,500 to $10,000 for the ugly grunt work of wrangling, bullying, and pleading with designers to spare a gown or a clutch purse so that the client (or, more often, the film studio that’s paying) doesn’t have to buy it. Often the stylist has to donate, too. If a movie company won’t pay for the day rate, the celebrity probably won’t either, in which case she might ask a stylist to dress her in return for exposure. Stylist Phillip Bloch says that some of his top-tier clients never pay him. “Honestly, Salma [Hayek] never paid a dollar, I don’t think, in all the years I’ve worked for her,” says Bloch. “She and I were best friends.”
