Spend an evening with celebrated author and fashion writer Teri Agins at The American Library in Paris.
In her latest book, Hijacking the Runway: How Celebrities Are Stealing the Spotlight from Fashion Designers, Wall Street Journal fashion reporter, Agins discusses how celebrities have taken over the world of fashion. From Jessica Simpson to Sarah Jessica Parker to Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, musicians, actors, even athletes have delved into a realm that used to be solely for the formally trained.
Think about it. How many of you actually know the name of the designers behind Balmain, Saint Laurent, Givenchy, or Chanel? Put your smartphone down… don’t you dare try and Google it. Now think of all the celebrities you know that have recently worn these brands out and about. I bet you can name at least five without the help of smart device, can’t you?
Tomorrow, Wednesday, January 27th at The American Library in Paris join Teri Agins as the conversation continues on who’s truly the stars of the fashion shows. Perfect timing with Haute Couture week still in full effect.
