With his bouffant hair, sequin-encrusted gowns, flaming red lips, and painted-on eyebrows, Harald Gloeoeckler has made a career out of being instantly recognizable, at least in his native Germany. Sometimes, though, even publicity hounds such as Gloeoeckler want a bit of privacy and are willing to pay something extra for protection from autograph seekers. Something like 405 euros extra -- the price of a day pass at Frankfurt Airport’s new VIP lounge.
“It’s impossible for me to go incognito,” says Gloeoeckler, a fashion and furnishings designer known for hosting television shopping shows and posting Instagram selfies sporting little or no clothing. “I just want a little peace when traveling.”
