1950: Mark Rothko’s White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose)
The National - Apartment Story
The Parent Trap
Harper Beckham has reportedly been offered a modeling contract with the company My 1st Years, who told Harper via open letter that they would pay her a “significant amount” to be their celebrity ambassador.
“We know you have implacable [sic] style and taste. You were therefore the immediate first choice for our campaign.”
Harper, good job turning this down. As your mentor, it is my duty to help you navigate the waters of celebrity endorsement, and I am sure you will have many more opportunities far better than this one. Following are my rules for celebrity endorsements:
- Only endorse high-end products. What is My 1st Years, anyway? My familiarity with the brand should be a litmus test — if I haven’t heard of it, it’s not legitimate.
- Only accept offers for products that you truly love. Don’t you think Violet Affleck regrets signing on to promote that line of orthopedic footwear? (I assume she did this; why else would her shoes be so ugly?)
- Never say no to Chanel.
