Question of the Day: Who Merits Photography At The Step & Repeat?

    Step and Repeat-worthy?[Does holding a bottle of alcohol qualify you to get your pic snapped? Photo by Lisa Wagner for BlogHamptons]. Obviously, bona fide celebrities are obliged to stop on the red carpet to get their picture snapped so that the wire services can post them, newspapers can print them, and blogs can repost them. But what about those of us who haven't quite reached celebrity status (yet)? Do we deserve our time in the flashes of limelight? Or should we steer clear of the Step & Repeat? My take is this: If you're with somebody famous -- like an actor, artist, or designer -- be a hanger-on and get your picture taken. If you're involved with the organization throwing the event or with the venue hosting the event, get your picture taken. Other than that, you better be wearing something ridiculous or wielding a ludicrous prop or else you'd better step away from the Step & Repeat! Agree, disagree, or agree to disagree?
