In 2011, it seems Tiffany & Co. dropped a whopping $750,000 on Anne Hathaway just so she'd wear the company's gems with her Valentino gown. And get this: That same year, Louis Vuitton shelled out $500,000 when Gwyneth Paltrow wore the brand's jewels on stage. Of course, the news of celebs being paid to parade around in gorgeous get-ups isn't breaking news, but what's somewhat heartbreaking is that the actress with less audience appeal (a.k.a. not so young and thin) won't have the same opportunities as these ideal A-listers, oftentimes giving the dressmaker or jewelry designer they've chosen free publicity. So, as the sample-sized gals get lofty checks at evening's end, most women on that carpet won't be considering Sunday a pay day at all.
It's a sad truth in Tinseltown, but no matter what, good taste conquers all — and that means everyone has a fair shake at the best-dressed list. (Huff Post Style)
