Ever ponder what the red-carpet residing glamazons and cream of the fashionable heap did to make some dough before hitting it big? No need to wonder any longer--Chic's got you covered with a roundup of the most memorable, dreadful, ridiculous (and almost always funny) first gigs that some of our faves were candid enough to share...

Charlize Theron, actress: I used to sing with my neighbor in a plaza in South Africa. I can’t sing at all, so it was dreadful and horrible. People would tip and put money in a hat because they felt bad for us.

Brad Goreski, stylist:
I used to work in a video store in Port Perry, Ontario, and I loved it. Anne of Green Gables, Clueless, Grease, Showgirls, The Breakfast Club—they were always playing. I watched lots of movie musicals there.

Dennis Basso, designer
: I was an only child and they never made me work in the summer. But since college I don’t think I’ve had a day off, so I’ve made up for lost time!

Mickey Boardman, editorial director, Paper
: My first job ever, after my first year of college, was at an aluminum-siding factory.

Gilles Mendel, designer:
When I was working in my father’s shop in Paris, I slept in big baskets of sable and chinchilla furs in the cold vault. It was 95 degrees outside, and I was in my father’s factory covered in furs, having the most luxurious moments of my youth.

Francisco Costa, designer, Calvin Klein Collection:
While I was at FIT, I did an internship in Cuomo at two fabric mills. It was just brilliant.

Rachel Roy, designer:
When I was 14, my dad dropped me off in front of McDonald’s and told me not to come home until I had a paycheck and could start paying rent. I didn’t want to sling fries, so I took the bus to the mall and got a job at Contempo Casuals. I told them I was 16 to get the job, and I unpacked clothes and hung them up all day. I liked the discount, too.

Kellan Lutz, actor:
I was a camp counselor for my bible school. I was in charge of weight training in the gym, and the science lab. I’m still in touch with two of the kids. We e-mail a lot!

Irene Neuwirth, designer:
I worked at a grocery store in Telluride, Colorado, but I got fired pretty quickly. I think I showed up late. I worked there for, like, three days. My parents came in and took a picture of me while I was still working there. They were like, “This is the most unbelievable moment of our lives.”
