The Cost of Celebrity

How much can you get paid to sit in the front row of a fashion show?

One hundred thousand, if you are Rihanna.

B-listy designers pay A-list celebrities many dollars to come to their shows—and Fashionista did some digging to find out exactly how many. The answers reveal some surprising hierarchies: Rihanna costs more than Beyoncé, Blake Lively, more than Leighton Meester. Colin Firth’s fee tripled after A Single Man. And, oddly, someone has bothered to pay Jared Leto at all—$25,000?

Paris Hilton and the cast of Jersey Shore, unsurprisingly, are uninvited.
