Vogue: I shop on secret site where all the stuff is FREE
VOGUE Williams has revealed that she is flooded with gifts – and shops on a special free and exclusive website for social media stars.
The presenter spills the beans about the perks of celebrity in her new RTÉ documentary.
In Vogue, My Sponsored Life she tells how she has access to a website for famous influencers – where she can order goods without paying for anything: ‘It’s like online shopping but you are not paying for anything. So you are just clicking on things you want that brands have offered on the off-chance you will post about them or Insta-story about them.
‘That is just crazy – but it is also absolutely amazing. I just got some new bed sheets today and I didn’t have to pay for them,’ she says.
In her documentary, the new mother delves into how ‘likes’ and retweets have created online empires for a generation of social media stars known as influencers.
And thanks to her 83,000 Twitter followers and 343,000 Instagram followers, the gifts keep rolling in. ‘I am a lucky b **** ,’ she admits. ‘Companies send me gifts in the hopes I will post about them. I get a lot of free trips away. But if it is a really good product I will just share it with people, even if I’m not being paid.’
But there are some things she won’t endorse.
Vogue was recently asked, postpregnancy, to post about an intimate spray but flatly refused.
‘Those sorts of things are private. I guess anything below the waist I won’t promote,’ she says. ‘No, maybe I could do it for €100,000.’ Vogue: My Sponsored Life airs this Wednesday at 9.30pm on RTÉ2.
