Celebrities have always been linked with fashion, but in the past decade or so we've seen an unprecedented amount of celebrity involvement with stars launching their own clothing lines, perfumes, etc, appearing in advertisements, dominating the front rows, magazines covers timed to coincided with movie premieres (not a new development but bear with me) etc. How much of an influence on fashion do you think celebrities have and do you feel that they have negatively or positively effected things? Does it benefit fashion to have a "celebrity" brand wherein all the clothes are obviously designed by someone else (Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, etc) or are things cheapened by the involvement of an outsider who does not have the experience necessary (Lindsay Lohan's disastrous turn with Ungaro) tell me what you think. Read this interesting stat the other day: on NST. Now I don't have any celebrity scents in my collection, nor do I really know anyone who does, but this is big business.
