Celebrities who sell clothesThe other day when I was having my weekly browse-through on JustJared.com (the only celebrity blog I allow myself to read), I read that Leighton Meester has been confirmed for the Missoni campaign. Accidenti, Missoni! Why these people – Blake and Leighton and the rest of them – are even mildly rated by European fashion houses is beyond me. Remind me what’s interesting about them?
The other week I was complaining about Blake Lively and her upcoming Chanel campaign. I wrote about my fondness of Kirsten Dunst and why I view her as one of the few younger celebrities, who’s interesting enough that I’d want to see her in a fashion campaign. My pondering got a lot of feedback from readers who agreed and disagreed, and so, I decided to list a few other young celebrities who I think would be suitable for campaigns.
My first choice is Riley Keogh. The daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, Riley used to model and was featured in a Dolce & Gabbana campaign back in the day. Riley’s got that rough Presley edge to her, that masculine energy which is so intense and so utterly, utterly attractive. Honestly, every time I see a picture of her mum I get all fuzzy inside. I don’t know what it is about the Presleys. Riley is the same, and I would love to see her in a campaign. Those eyes could sell sand to Bedouins. Fashion sales potential: 10/10
Second up we’ve got Kristen Stewart. Kristen has a similar energy to Riley Keogh: a kind of butch amazingness, which reminds me of a young Jodie Foster but comes across far more Brooke-Shields-in-the-1980s. By this I basically mean she’s really hot. Kristen is so unimpressed by everything that I’d love to see her forced to look impressed by something in a campaign. She’d be great for Dior Homme, for instance. Fashion sales potential: 7/10
Number three on my list is Lourdes Leon. Although I don’t think she’s quite there yet age-wise – I’d probably judge her parents if they put her in a campaign at fifteen – Lola is born to sell fashion. She seems opinionated and kind of unfazed by being a Ciccone, which instantly places her high on my plus list. I don’t really get all that emo she’s got going on but put her in some Balenciaga and I shall certainly be queuing up for some teddy girl action, stat. Fashion sales potential: 8/10
My fourth and last suggestion, Gillian Zinser of 90210, actually represents the entire female cast of 90210 (and the guy who plays Liam) because contrary to the Gossip Girls, I think pretty much every single young lady on 90210 has something special. Gillian, however, has something very special. I’m not sure if it’s her tomboy character on the show that’s got me all hot for her, but if she’s anything like that in real life, she’s as perfect as a girl can be. Why? Because she’s a girl and boy in one. Package solution! (And I love Anna-Lynne McCord, too. Skank alert.) Fashion sales potential: 9/10
