As a brand, you can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on marketing your products to the masses through commercials and advertisements, but there’s really nothing as powerful as, well, star power. In recent years, we’ve seen countless examples of celebrities who have stepped out in certain items, which subsequently sold out the second the photographs hit the Internet.
Of course, some stars have bigger sell-out powers than others. For example, if someone like Brooke Hogan or a “Teen Mom” star carries a Louis Vuitton bag, it’s likely that no one will run and place an order for it. Conversely, we’ve all know that anything Kate Middleton or Alexa Chung wears will turn into instantly-profitable gold, due to their reputations as serious style setters with tons of would-be emulators.
That said, we’ve narrowed down 10 of the most marketable celebrities when it comes to selling out fashion items.
