The apprentice becomes the master

“But their very use by advertising media and fashion industry revealed the ambiguity of their ‘social distinction.’” – C. Wright Mills

This quote embodies the success stories of two popular starlets of our era… Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.  The funny thing is, Kim used to simply pick out clothes and dress up the wardrobe of her fellow starlet.  This is how Kim Kardashian started out… helping celebrities with their wardrobes… but then, through working the celebrity scene and paparazzi… she somehow became a bigger success than those who had employed her.  Say what you want about Kim K… but she’s certainly figured out how to work the celebrity system.
