Kit Harrington's Hair Has Its Own Game of Thrones Contract; Russell Westbrook Collaborates With Barneys New York

And fashion bloggers are making six-figure salaries.

Kit Harrington's Hair Has Its Own Game of Thrones Contract: A fan of Jon Snow's luscious locks? Apparently Game of Thrones directors are too—and they've made sure his curly brown 'do won't be going anywhere. "It has its own contract definitely," actor Kit Harrington said on Live with Kelly and Michael on Tuesday. "I never thought I'd say that about my own hair." And while three years is a long time to maintain the same look, as long as Harrington is playing Snow, his style won't be changed. "I'm just not allowed to cut it, and I didn't realize this until recently," he continued. "I wanted to cut it. I've had long hair for ages and they were like, 'no, no, no, that won't be happening." And we thank you for that, HBO gods. [US Weekly]

Russell Westbrook Collaborates With Barneys New York: Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook has certainly made a name for himself both on and off the court. The bonafide NBA style icon has been tapped by Barneys New York to design an exclusive collection, working with labels including Marcelo Burlon County of Milan, Nike Jordan, Del Toro, and Naked & Famous. The 60+ piece collaboration, set to hit store mid-July, will be "designed with Westbrook’s sharp yet appropriately playful aesthetic." Westbrook will also be accompanying the Barneys team to Men's Fashion Week in Paris in June, where he will attend shows and take over the store's Instagram feed. [Barneys Press Release]

Fashion Bloggers Are Making Six-Figure Salaries: Some of the world's top fashion bloggers, including Bryanboy's Bryan Grey-Yambao, Fashion Toast's Rumi Neely, and The Blonde Salad's Chiara Ferragni are reportedly cashing in current earnings that are close to $1 million. Grey-Yambao, who in 2010 admitted to earning $100,000 a year, now says that figure is "not enough." “For a young, upstart blogger, $100,000 may seem like a lot of money," he told WWD. "[But] as a business, a legit business, $100,000 won’t really bring you that far. You have a lot of expenses.” To cover expenses, bloggers have increased their fees, with appearances costing between $10,000- $15,000, or $50,000 for a high-profile event. Plus, they receive compensation for designer collaborations, brand partnerships, and even posting sponsored photos to Instagram. [WWD]
