Many people follow certain celebrities and pay close attention to the fashion choices they make. In addition to wanting to know who they are dating and where they are traveling to many people also want to know what their favorite celeb is wearing as well. Some people will go as far as to try to dress just like the celebrities.
People who fall into this category of wanting to copy their favorite celebrities fashion choices have a variety of reasons for doing so. In the remainder of the article below we will go over some of the reasons that people give for this practice.
The definition of celebrity suggests that one is well known and popular and in actuality many of these people can't even lead a normal life because they can't go anywhere without being mobbed by both fans and paparazzi. If you asked them there are many celebrities who would like to change this so that they could have some semblance of a normal life. On the other side of the coin there are people who crave attention and think that if they dress like a celebrity that maybe they will get some of that attention as well although in the vast majority of cases this just isn't true.
When you see celebrities on television talk shows you see that they get many compliments on their fashion choices and in fact in a lot of cases you will see a lot of people copying their style after an appearance on a show. Since most normal people who have average lives and jobs don't get complimented in this way some actually crave it. This is why many people will watch TV fashion channels and subscribe to fashion magazines to keep up with the trends in celebrity fashion.
Some people may think that this practice of being fascinated with celeb fashion trends is unhealthy but in reality there is nothing wrong with staying informed about it. The problem is when a fan becomes so obsessed that they actually want to try to make themselves look just like the star they are adoring. In addition, just because a particular style looks good on the celebrity doesn't mean it will look good on you. I can remember when Madonna was hot when she first came out and girls were dressing in the sexy styles that she wore. Some looked good, but others should not have been making the attempt. I will leave that as is.
Another issue is that celebrities have more money that the majority of the population so they can afford to change their clothing styles more often than others. Most of us would quickly run out of money trying to keep up with all of the changes. One good thing that has come out of this is that many lower end designers such as those who create fashions for department stores are copying the styles and pricing them more affordable for the general population.
We all look up to celebrities. In fact, we'd buy magazines and check out celebrity blogs just to know more about our favorite Hollywood star. One of the most commonly asked-about information about our favorite actors and actresses is their favorite choice of sunglasses. As stars, they wear sunglasses most of the time not only to protect their eyes from the harmful UV radiation but also to conceal their identity and to shoo paparazzi. And what are the most common sunglasses brands worn by our favorite celebrities? Here's a quick recap.
Chanel. Chanel is the top pick of actresses who love to look fashionable and stylish everywhere they go. One can never go wrong with a Chanel, especially when you're feeling girly and want to wear your favorite dress. Socialites like Paris Hilton, singers like Rihanna, and women who want to look classy forever such as Meryl Streep love Chanel sunglasses.
Ray-Ban. Ray-Ban sunglasses first became popular when it was made as the official sunglasses brand by the US army. Nowadays, it's the go-to brand among celebrities and individuals who want a combination of function and style. Ray-ban sunglasses are not very feminine but they exude an impression of fierceness, which is why these sunglasses are commonly associated with rock stars. Some of the famous celebrities who love Ray-Ban include Angelina Jolie and Lindsay Lohan. Ray-Ban is associated with being a masculine brand. When General Douglas Mc Arthur wore the Ray-Ban aviator to one of the most important milestones in American history, the brand was seen as something "manly" and "strong."
Prada. Prada has the same market as Chanel's. It's the choice of women who want to look classy and fashionable all the time. The good thing about Prada designs is that you don't always have to pair them with your dresses. You, too, can wear your favorite Prada sunglasses with your favorite jeans and shirts. No wonder why Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, and Kim Kardashian love their Prada sunnies. Designer shades are accessories that every star lives in. Celebrities are often seen and photographed outdoors even without handbags or jewellery and not even dolled up but seldom are they without sunglasses.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. Which is why it is very important that you always pack at least one with you along with your bikinis and sunblock. Today, there are a wide range of sunglasses to choose from and for sure, there's one that will best fit your style and budget.
So, do you want to look like your favorite celebrities? Take your pick from any of the sunglass brands mentioned above.
The next time you're watching TV and Gregory House sits down by the piano at the end of an episode, watch his fingers carefully. The British actor that plays Dr. House, Hugh Laurie, is both an accomplished actor and a professional musician.
If you ask Hugh Laurie about his musical skills, he'll likely give you a humble and self-effacing answer. For instance, Laurie often describes himself as a "frustrated musician" and says that he "trifles" with the piano and guitar.
Since the early days of his acting career on British programs like A Bit of Fry and Laurie and Poor White Trash and Wooster, Hugh Laurie has been composing and recording original music. In fact, Laurie stated that his life's secret dream is to play in a jazz trio in the lounge of a small hotel. He quips that the group would be called the Hugh Laurie Five, even though there would only be three musicians.
Laurie has played music with two noteworthy musical groups. In the late 1990's, Laurie played in a band called Poor White Trash with Lenny Henry and Ben Elton's wife Sophie. Another well-known English actor, Adrian Edmondson from The Young Ones, was also a member of the group for a time. The group played soul and blues with a touch of funk.
More recently, Hugh Laurie plays with the Los Angeles charity group called Band from TV. The band was formed when Greg Grunberg realized that a tremendous amount of interest was generated when celebrities got together to jam. He saw an opportunity to play fundraisers for charity with fellow celebrities. So, when he guest starred on an episode of House, he asked Hugh Laurie to play with the group. The group made its debut at the TV Guide after party for the 58th annual Primetime Emmy Awards in 2006.
Other celebrities that have played with Band from TV include Teri Hatcher, James Denton, Bonnie Somerville, Bob Guiney, Jesse Spencer, Chris Kelley, Barry Sarna, Bryan McCann, Jon Sarna, Brad Savage, Chris Mostert and David Anders.
The band covered the Rolling Stones' hit "You Can't Always Get What You Want" for the House M.D. Original Television Soundtrack, and they frequently play charity events to benefit various causes. They released an album entitled Hoggin' All the Covers in 2007.
Laurie also makes music a family affair. He plays guitar and piano, while his two sons play saxophone and drums. His daughter joins in on clarinet, and the family plays together. Clearly, the kids get their musical talent from their father.
Hugh Laurie has showcased his musical talent on shows like Saturday Night Live and Inside the Actor's Studio. In addition to playing and recording music, Hugh Laurie enjoys piloting private planes, driving motorcycles and skydiving.
So, the next time you see an old episode of House MD and you catch Hugh Laurie playing "What a Friend We Have In Jesus" during the episode, now you'll know the good doctor really can tickle the ivories. Hopefully, future episodes of the hit show will highlight Laurie's talent for music, since Dr. House's character is all the more soulful while he's playing his piano.
