You're Not Cool Until ...
Recently actresses/singers/models have all decided to give up their day job to focus on designing their own lines of clothing and accessories. You may be a tad bit skeptical (which I was at first) but in the past five years, the modern day consumer has become engrossed with not only celebrities dirty laundry but their clothes as well.
~Let me begin with the one and only JLo. In 2004 her line “Sweetface” grossed over $130 million and is expected to surpass that mark after debuting her upscale line in New York’s Fashion Week.
~Mandy Moores' new line, Mblem consists of vintage tees which will be carried in various boutiques throughout the country.
~Hillary Duff is also jumping on the band wagon by carrying a line called “Stuff by Duff” at Target stores nationwide.
~Victoria Beckham, once known as Posh Spice of the late 1990’s hit group the Spice Girls has been designing jeans for years and will now carry her own line, VB (her initials) this year. Unfortunately VB is only being sold in the UK, so it’s the internet for everyone in the US.
~Gwen Stefani known for her unusual rocker chick style has created her own line, L.A.M.B. which consists of handbags and accessories. Her line offers pieces which reflect the singers’ personal style.
