Red Carpet Jewelry - It's All About Pay To Play

We've all known for years that A-list celebrities borrowed gowns and jewelry to wear on the red carpet.
It's one thing to wear goods on loan,
it's another thing altogether to get paid to show off the swag.

According to Jewelry Insider, golden girl Gwyneth Paltrow, was paid a rumored $500,000
to sport that gorgeous multi-gemstone brooch and earrings set by Louis Vuitton.
I loved the colorful jewelry look with the neutral gown,
but doesn't Mrs. Martin have enough already with all of the Cold Play cash.

And then we have Anne Hathaway who was paid $750,000 to wear Tiffany.

Granted, as co-host she had multiple outfit changes
so lots of jewelry was needed 

But really, three quarters of a MILLION dollars, to model the goods for one night!

The next time that you go shopping at Tiffany, keep in mind that you the client are being charged sky high prices so that Anne Hathaway can be paid to wear their jewelry one night of the year.

That's such a lot to pay them! I hope Tiffany and Vuitton got their moneys worth in publicity. The jewels are never talked about like the dresses. There wasn't a stand out dress for me this year xx

Really - they must have been desperate to have someone wear their wares. I do know lots of actresses change their mind about what they wear before a red carpet event so to lock them into a contract and pay them is a way to get the publicity guaranteed....but that was a lot of $$$ and yes did Mrs Martin need the money or does she know her days of being a lead actress are on the wane...
