Where the supermodel once reigned supreme, the celebrity conquers at contemporary fashion weeks with famous faces now frequently gracing the runways of high fashion brands globally. From Chanel to Miu Miu and everything in between, iconic celebrity runway cameos are not an unordinary sight to see when sitting in the front row of a show.
Whether a brand ambassador or simply an aficionado of the label, celebrities love to walk the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris. Lady Gaga has walked multiple shows for different brands including Steven Jones and Marc Jacobs. Prada often casts droves of celebrities in its shows, particularly for mens fashion. The appeal of the celebrity is evident from the interest their presence generates to the star power and value they bring to the show; it's catnip for Instagram and TikTok posts, and breaks up the procession of models.
