Chapter 1456 Become a Familiar Face
By the time Qin Zhou arrived at the fashion show with his charge, it was already packed with many other female celebs, who had also come early despite their rush to reach the venue.
It was just that those celebs were not the bigshots.
After all, the bigshots cared about being the last one to arrive in a grand manner.
It represented their celebrity rating; the later one arrived, the higher their rank was.
Those female celebs here, on the other hand, were just some third-raters who snuck in Fashion Week with the media’s invitation cards to gain fame.
It was star-studded in this affair with artists constantly competing with one another in various poses and welcoming the camera flashes when they passed by the paparazzi.
Attending the Fashion Week was akin to them receiving a ‘Fashion College’ degree and their managers receiving a ticket to ‘clinch international endorsements’.
This was far easier than starring in an unknown literary film or even forcing their way to an international film festival’s red carpet.
The outcome, however, from these mere seven days was dependent on the individuals’ ability to cultivate their fashion sense.
A show lasted ten minutes at most, but before the show began, what the stars must do was socialize.
Since it was Fashion Week, watching the show was top priority. Like domestic brand launches, the fashion shows had an unwritten rule; all would start half an hour later than scheduled. According to the PR of a luxury brand, these thirty minutes were reserved for guest socializing.
For example, some celebs would take advantage of this to get close to some brands’ top management and exchange pleasantries with ‘best buddies’ whom they had met by chance.
The stars put a lot of effort in dressing up for the show.
Besides carefully picking out their attires and their matching styles, hair styling and makeup alone took them several hours, yet the duration of the show only lasted about a couple of songs.
A brand launch would usually last about five minutes, presenting over thirty sets of their latest clothing line on stage. The bigger shows, with more clothes to present and models to appear on stage, would also wrap up in ten minutes tops.
Many celebs would then hurry to leave at the show’s end either to attend the next show or to greet gamely the paparazzi outside.
Qin Zhou brought his artist here early to let her mix around with the various top managements of the big fashion brands, street productions, and directors, as well as to become a familiar face to them.
She was only a newbie, after all. No matter how many resources he exhausted on her, it was still insufficient.
In the short span of ten minutes, Yun Shishi was led by her manager to meet with three different Hollywood investors and did a grand introduction of herself to them.
The investors were highly satisfied with her classiness and all other aspects.
She had the typical classic beauty look, which was very popular in Hollywood.
With her manager’s topnotch socializing skills, he managed to clinch a deal for her on the spot.
Hollywood was in the middle of working on a commercial blockbuster with a very marketable theme of American heroism.
As the core of Hollywood had been shifting to the mainland market in recent years and they valued having Asian faces in their cast selection, he got his artist a role on the spot by making use of his international connections.
Even though it was only a supporting character with little scenes, being able to show her face in Hollywood was already the best way for her to raise her celebrity rating.
Meanwhile, Lin Zhi and the other female celebs arrived late at the scene, just ten minutes before the show started.
