Becoming a socialite requires befriending well-known, socially connected people, getting invited to A-list events, being photographed at high-profile events and always looking glamorous. Many socialites achieved their status by marrying a celebrity. It is also helpful to be stunningly attractive and have an outgoing, dynamic personality.
Uniqueness can also help a socialite rise on the social ladder, assuming that the unique trait is one that is valued on the social scene, such as an unusually keen sense of humour. Getting on the list for a high-profile soirée, movie premiere or theater opening that is attended by A-list celebrities in one of the most difficult tasks. It is critical to form connections with others high on the social ladder who know celebrities.
It is also helpful for an aspiring socialite to befriend people in the public relations business. They have the ability to get names placed on the invitation list for high-profile events.
Appearance is critical to success as a socialite. Many aspiring socialites work with the same personal trainers as celebrities. This gives them the opportunity to network and perhaps meet a celebrity in the gym. Once at the high-profile event, it is crucial to wear the right brand-name clothing, such as Balmain, Celine, Acne or Isabel Marant.
The aspiring socialite can use high-profile events to up her status by getting photographed by social photographers. A good strategy for a socialite is to attach herself to famous, attractive or dynamic people, which enhances her chances of being photographed.
