A little over a month ago we wrote about 13 year old blogger extraordinaire Tavi landing the cover of Pop magazine. But she’s not the only blogger making waves outside of internet land with fashion bloggers being bestowed gifts as wild and unimaginable as big show front row seats, invites to fancy elite balls and becoming ambassadors for designer labels.
French blogger Garance Doré found herself front row saying “…suddenly being catapulted onto the A-list of a prestigious design house is really validating, it’s also really embarrassing. And in this universe of set codes and delicately kept rights-of-passages, it pisses everyone off just a little.” She was one of four new front-row faces along with partner Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist, Bryan Boy and Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil fame. D&G even went so far as to provide the fantastic four with laptops so they could blog and tweet to their heart’s content mid show.
Away from the catwalk, teen blogger Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes has been invited to the very fancy, very prestigious, very chic Hôtel de Crillon Bal des Débutantes, and if it wasn’t enough of a fairytale – she will be wearing Chanel Haute Couture. Chanel have continued playing fairy godmother with blogger Alix Bancourt of Cherry Blossom Girl being named the ambassador for Chanel’s new line of bags Coco Cocoon.
I blog, but I’m still waiting for the front row passes and b-grade celeb status, unfortunately even a blog about cats that look like Hitler is more popular than mine… sigh.
