About Clinton Kelly
As for the day, Clinton Kelly net worth amounts to $2 million and I must say I am a little bit jealous for him. And this isn’t even because he is rich – call me naïve, but I still believe that happiness isn’t about money. I am jealous because the guy earns millions for doing what he actually loves! He enjoys working as a fashion consultant, designer, writer and these “hobbies” also happen to be the main sources of Clinton Kelly net worth! But let’s take a closer look at his career and see how this man got so wealthy.
After graduating from Comsewogue High School the future millionaire continued his studies in Boston College and Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. After earning his master’s degree Clinton started working as a freelancer journalist for various magazines in New York. The young and talented man did not have any trouble finding jobs and his salary increased every year. During this period Kelly has worked as a deputy editor at Mademoiselle, editor at Marie Claire and finally as an executive editor of the Daily News Record. While Clinton Kelly net worth has been rising due to his job as an editor, the fashion guru has also continued authoring articles. In fact, I think you may have read some of them without even knowing this because Kelly did not always sign by his real name. For example while working as a deputy editor at Mademoiselle Clinton also wrote some articles under the pseudonym Joe L’Amour.
Another important source of Kelly’s income is his work on television. He is most famous as a co-host of reality television show What Not To Wear. On this show his co-star is Stacy London. Clinton was cast for a program as a replacement for another fashion consultant, Wayne Scott Lucas. By the way, even though Clinton is openly gay, What Not To Wear is nothing like pioneering show Queer Eye. Unless you have a really accurate and otherwise reliable “gay radar”, you would never guess that Kelly is not a heterosexual.
In addition to working as a television show host, editing fashion magazines and writing columns Kelly has also written three books: Dress Your Best: The Complete Guide to Finding the Style That’s Right for Your Body (together with Stacy London; 2005), Freakin’ Fabulous: How to Dress, Speak, Behave, Eat, Drink, Entertain, Decorate, and Generally be Better than Everyone Else (in which he famously wrote: “Sometimes comfort doesn’t matter. When a shoe is freakin’ fabulous, it may be worth a subsequent day of misery”; 2008) and Oh No She Didn’t (2010). Each of the publications was rather successful commercially and made significant contributions to the growth of overall Clinton Kelly net worth.
