Why So Much Emphasis Is Placed On Celebrity Fashion

Aug 18, 2007
Everyone has their own favorite television and movie stars that they keep up with on a regular basis. I know when I was a kid growing up Arnold Schwarzenegger was like an idol to me and I would often wonder what he was doing at the same time I was and I would often wonder would it would be like to be him. It seems like everyone is interested in knowing what the latest news is on certain celebrities, such as who they are dating and what are the latest fashions they are wearing. One need only look at the media hype surrounding Paris Hilton anytime she is involved in anything to know what I mean. Some people have to know everything that is going on with her, others could care less.

Celebrities and fashion designers are cashing in on this phenomenon by collaborating to design clothing lines endorsed by the celebrity. There are many people who like to dress like their favorite celebrity, girls in particular. How many girls did you see dressing like Britney Spears at her peak?

Most celebrities can't even get out of their driveway without being surrounded by fans and paparazzi. This makes it difficult to have a normal life, indeed many wish they could trade their celebrity for a normal life while many regular everyday people think that they would rather have the life of a star being showered with attention. It is this type of person that usually thinks that dressing like their favorite star will help them get attention.

Famous people in most cases realize the influence they have on many things including fashion and are taking steps to take advantage of it. Most top stars are well known for their fashion choices and the award shows are a big showcase for the latest in style and fashion in the world. You don't have to look far to find a celeb being interviewed and told how trendy and fashionable they are. Since the average individual isn't normally complimented in this way they tend to think that if they adopt the style of the star they love they will be complimented as well.

Some think that being so obsessed with the fashion choices of the stars is not healthy and that it may indicate some kind of condition such as low self esteem. While this may be the cases some of the time I don't think it is for the majority of people. I think that most people want to be admired and complimented. Like anything of course it can be carried too far. The rich and famous have virtually unlimited resources to buy whatever they want, the average person does not. If one is so obsessed with fashion that they do themselves financial harm to stay in the latest styles this is not healthy.
