Celebrities have the easiest entrance into the fashion industry because people want to emulate their look as much as possible. Whether it’s handbags, shoes, perfume, jewelry or dresses, there are a number of celebrities who have made their way into the fashion brands of 2011 with quite a bit of success.
The Kardashian Kollection
The fashionistas of the world, Kourtney, Khloe and Kimberly have decided to take their idea of fashion to the masses. They have graced the covers of enough magazines for people to be envious of their style. Instead of being good with status quo, the sisters decided that they would explore style in a new way – by creating it themselves. Most of their line includes such things as:
A lot of the Kardashian Kollection can be found at Sears, which has put a significant boost for Sears because with all of the celebrity gossip about the sisters, people are able to get access to their style easier than ever before.
The jewelry is one of the hottest sellers, with large rings that wrap around the finger, large earrings that include various stones – and it’s all reasonably affordable. This makes it one of the best sellers in 2011 when it comes to celebrity designs.
Jennifer Lopez released her perfume years ago and has had a lot of success with it. Since then, she’s only grown more popular, she’s had twins and her fans are crazy about her. So, just like any smart celebrity does, she decides to create a fashion line. Her line is available at Kohls, online and in stores, so more people have access to her creations.
Her line includes:
- Fashion (shoes, dresses, tops, bottoms)
Unlike some celebrities, J Lo creates things that she herself would like to wear. What that means is if you like the way J Lo dresses, you can get the same great look by buying from within her clothing line.
Stuff by Hilary Duff
This teen celebrity got her start from various Disney shows and movies. She’s an actress and a songstress – and now a fashion designer, too. Her line, Stuff by Hilary Duff, is focused at a hip and funky clothes line for teens that is all about mixing and matching. She has five main collections:
- Broken English for the prep school look
- Queen Victoria which focuses on lace and ruffles
- Precious Metals which has a rock star quality
- Global Hippie, filled with 70s flair
- Night Flight, the dressier of the collections.
Stuff by Hilary Duff encompasses all aspects of looking great including makeup and cosmetics to help you look and smell great and accessorize. If you like making your own clothes, she’s also teamed up with McCall’s for patterns.
Her items are available in Sears, Walmart, Target, JC Penney, Sellers and more.
Gwen Stefani – L.A.M.B
Gwen Stefani, the lead singer for No Doubt and then a solo artist, has always been a fashion diva, staying true to her own unique looks. She has a funky and affordable line of handbags, apparel and much more. She has teamed with various companies over the years to bring her influence to the world of fashion.
Now, she features L.A.M.B, a line for women featuring the hottest blouses, skirts and dresses one can imagine, as well as an affordable line of kids clothing called Harajuku Lovers.
The Harajuku Lovers Line rolls out to Target and includes:
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker, queen of Sex and the City, has a lot of fashion sense, which she has brought to the masses time and time again. She first had the clothing line, Bitten, which she teamed up with Steve & Barry’s to offer, though it didn’t live long when Steve & Barry’s filed for bankruptcy.
However, she’s back with SJP, now offering jewelry, clothing and much more that is more reminiscent of her days on Sex and the City than some of her less than successful lines, which is why people love this line.
Celebrity Fashion Gets Noticed
There are a lot of celebrities that have had successful clothing lines over the years. Jaclyn Smith, Arnold Palmer and many paved the way with their success so that more celebrities today can pair with various stores to offer unique lines to their fans.
