Why Celebrities Love Rocking High Street Pieces
When it comes to red carpet events, glossy magazines and celebrity fashion, we instantly think of the most prestigious designer labels. Chanel, Dior, Vivienne Westwood, the list goes on. While celebrities do of course invest in designer brands, more and more iconic names are turning to the high street to get their fashion fix and keep up to date with the latest trends.
Increasingly so, the high street is offering up pieces of beautiful quality, that are runway worthy. Inspired by the latest trends and the latest designer catwalk shows, the high street has its finger firmly on the latest looks, always staying one step ahead. The best brands release collections before word has even spread about the latest trends, drawing inspiration from the catwalk shows from the likes of London, Paris and Milan.
While celebrities are well known to be big earners, many are still choosing to pick up high street pieces, over the often shockingly expensive designer labels. Creating an iconic look with a blend of high street and designer, celebrities are fantastic to draw inspiration from when it comes to high street looks.
