Did you know that Rihanna gets paid $100,000 or more to sit in the front row of a runway show? Chloe Sevigny gets $60,000 or more, and J-Lo used to get $80,000, although these days her price is down to a measly $30,000. Fashionista lists all these details and many more in an utterly fascinating look at just what designers—well, certain designers—will pay to get attention-grabbing celebrities to watch their shows. The irony, of course, is that plenty of non-celebs would gladly pay just to be invited. [Fashionista]
