More From Socialites
All that Kim Kardashian has to do to send social media into a tizzy is to splurge on a pair of fancy footwear! If Paris Hilton colors a single strand of her hair purple, it becomes an instant fashion statement! Such is the impact famous socialites have on their numerous fans the world over. Wealthy and recognized, socialites have a fashionable reputation and a high position in social society. While it may seem like the rising popularity of socialites is a recent phenomenon, it is not really so. The concept of socialites dates to the 18th and 19th century, but the early socialites did not enjoy the fame and popularity that their modern counterparts do. It was only in the late 21st that the line between being a socialite and a celebrity became blurred and many socialites were catapulted to the kind of fame once enjoyed only by pop stars and actors. Coming to the modern era, socialites have expanded their horizons and have ventured into the entertainment fields as well with their own super-hit reality TV shows like ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, ‘Gossip Girl,’ and ‘The City.’ Intrigued to know more?
