Many people follow certain celebrities and pay close attention to the fashion choices they make. In addition to wanting to know who they are dating and where they are traveling to many people also want to know what their favorite celeb is wearing as well. Some people will go as far as to try to dress just like the celebrities.
People who fall into this category of wanting to copy their favorite celebrities fashion choices have a variety of reasons for doing so. In the remainder of the article below we will go over some of the reasons that people give for this practice.
The definition of celebrity suggests that one is well known and popular and in actuality many of these people can’t even lead a normal life because they can’t go anywhere without being mobbed by both fans and paparazzi. If you asked them there are many celebrities who would like to change this so that they could have some semblance of a normal life. On the other side of the coin there are people who crave attention and think that if they dress like a celebrity that maybe they will get some of that attention as well although in the vast majority of cases this just isn’t true.
When you see celebrities on television talk shows you see that they get many compliments on their fashion choices and in fact in a lot of cases you will see a lot of people copying their style after an appearance on a show. Since most normal people who have average lives and jobs don’t get complimented in this way some actually crave it. This is why many people will watch TV fashion channels and subscribe to fashion magazines to keep up with the trends in celebrity fashion.
Some people may think that this practice of being fascinated with celeb fashion trends is unhealthy but in reality there is nothing wrong with staying informed about it. The problem is when a fan becomes so obsessed that they actually want to try to make themselves look just like the star they are adoring. In addition, just because a particular style looks good on the celebrity doesn’t mean it will look good on you. I can remember when Madonna was hot when she first came out and girls were dressing in the sexy styles that she wore. Some looked good, but others should not have been making the attempt. I will leave that as is.
Another issue is that celebrities have more money that the majority of the population so they can afford to change their clothing styles more often than others. Most of us would quickly run out of money trying to keep up with all of the changes. One good thing that has come out of this is that many lower end designers such as those who create fashions for department stores are copying the styles and pricing them more affordable for the general population.
