Oh to be a slave to fashion.
People.com is reporting in their Caught In The Act section that Faith Hill and one of her daughters were spotted recently in Chicago spreading the wealth around by buying a "$506!" silk kimono.
Faith Hill dropped some serious cash – $506! – for a silk kimono from Nicole Richie's Winter Kate line while shopping with her daughter at Sofia Boutique in Chicago. The singer tried on various dresses – a combination of new and vintage – but left with the coral and sky blue kimono and a free T-shirt gifted to her by the boutique. She also signed the store's dressing room wall – and was "very pleasant and beautiful," a source tells us.
Come on people.com, didn't you read Memoirs of a Geisha? I did and let me tell you that in my completely limited (and yet highly entertaining) dive into the world of Japanese Geishas, I learned one important lesson - kimonos are darn pricey and young Geisha would often become slaves to a Geisha House just to keep themselves supplied in the silk garments that could cost tens of thousands of dollars.
If you ask me, I think Faith got one swell deal.
Yeah, you're right, probably a different sort of kimono.
