Most celebrities don’t buy many clothes, they really don’t have to. Global brands love to use well-known faces as clothes horses – it ensures their clothes are seen in the press, meaning legions of aspirational consumers will rush to buy the same thing.
But some celebrities are more sought-after than others, and thanks to Celebrity Intelligence, we’ve got a definitive list of which celebs are the best endorsers for brands.
Taking into account celebs on both sides of the Atlantic, here’s Celebrity Intelligence’s Very Important Endorsers List.

Of course, brands don't always want their clothes to be associated with celebrities. Alexander McQueen famously said Victoria Beckham couldn't wear his clothes (but her hunky husband could) and Jersey Shore's Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino was given a fat cheque by Abercrombie & Fitch on the premise that he stop wearing its clothes.

We daresay Burberry would have given a pretty penny to Daniella Westbrook to stop wearing its iconic check back in the day - it took the luxury fashion house many years to shake off the "chav" image she gifted it.

Celebrity Intelligence has also compiled a list of the most talked about celebrities.
