Celebrity fashion magazines such as InStyle provide weekly or monthly updates on who wore what to important events. Fashion sites and entertainment television programs report on current celebrity fashions at a faster pace, providing daily or real-time updates on events.
The American fashion industry's current form owes its start to World War II and the resulting lack of French fashions. Celebrity fashion culture is much newer, dating to 1992, and owes its popularity to online communications and the development of New York Fashion Week. Elle Magazine credits Gianni Versace with beginning the modern celebrity fashion movement by featuring popular entertainers prominently at his shows.
