It's a good question, isn't it? Just how much are these A-listers bagging for a spot on the highly sought-after FROW (front row). If you're surprised that they get paid at all, don't be. How else can designers secure world-wide coverage without a uber-stylish actress or pop star sat perched from the sidelines? After all, celebrities = paparazzi.
