Stylists have a cost
Brad Goreski, Lady Gaga’s wardrobe stylist, said: “The key to having a stylist is that you can make more money, either because more people want to hire you or because the brand you are carrying is making more money, and that generates more sales. Everything revolves around money. This is Hollywood, not the church!” There is a lot of money. The best wardrobe stylists charge from 10,000 euros onwards per event and brands can pay from 70,000 to 230,000 euros for an actress to wear a dress on a red carpet.
