If the idea of celebrity does not intrigue you, perhaps the thought of a multi-hyphenate star can inspire you. Who said you have to be one thing? Celebs these days can be a singer and actor, and fashion designers all at once.
The concept of celeb fashion lines is not new. However, most have been known to crash and burn like a one-hit-wonder, so it’s always a pleasant surprise when celeb fashion lines thrive. From high fashion to fast fashion, celebs are throwing their star power behind fashion.
Some in the list below you may know due to sharing similar names. However, some may surprise you once you find out the celeb name behind it. Therefore, we have compiled some of the best fashion lines owned by celebs.
The Row: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen
The former child and teen stars took the fashion world by storm by launching The Row back in 2006. The line is known for its impressive minimal aesthetic. However, it’s no secret that celebrity fashion lines are not seen as ‘serious.’
The Olsen twins, somehow noting this, did not give any interview about the brand for three years. This way, it moved past the celeb line status and gained critical acclaim, even earning them the Womenswear Designer of the Year award at the CFDAs.
Victoria Beckham: Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham cut her teeth in the fashion world through her denim line DVB and an eyewear line. However, the pop princess defied all odds with her most famous and well-loved line Victoria Beckham.
The star quietly launched the line in 2008. It had a low-key presentation but slowly gained status in the world of fashion. The line is a mainstay in the New York Fashion Week calendar. Also, the star was awarded an OBE by the Duchess of Cambridge for her contribution to fashion.
Jessica Simpson: Jessica Simpson
This fashion line under the star’s name does not have the same high fashion status as some of the other lines on this list, but it does not make it any less. Ever since 2010, the line has pulled in $1billion in sales every year.
Note that the line is the first celebrity line to break the 1 billion mark. Moreover, it is one of the longer-lasting fashion brands coming in at almost 16 years in the running. You can find the line in 30 different categories in several American department stores.
Kingdom and State: Tan France
Tan France is the founder of this London-based fashion line. The Queer Eye fashion advisor crafted the brand to feature classic silhouettes seen in their luxury swimwear, inspired by the brands’ European roots.
Kingdom and State are also eco-conscious and are a part of the 1% for the Planet. Thus for anyone looking for an eco-conscious brand, check them out. Their packaging is 100% recyclable and made from 100% recyclable materials.
Draper James: Reese Witherspoon
Draper James brings southern belle style to the forefront, and it’s therefore little wonder that Reese Witherspoon is the brains behind the line. It is named after her grandparents and features floral pieces and flouncy skirts, adding a southern touch.
Always on hand to help her promote the line is her precious family, who sounds their support for each release. The pieces, therefore, range between $50 to $400. The brand also collaborated with Eloquii to make gorgeous plus-size pieces that still have Witherspoon’s southern touch.
Ivy Park: Beyonce
This fast-selling line has Beyonce to thank. It was once a mainstay at Topshop; however, scandal saw Beyonce by back ownership. The award-winning musician then moved her collaboration to Adidas.
This is not the first time that Beyonce has owned a fashion line. The star once ran the eponymous House of Dereon with her mother back in the early aughts. Ivy Park offers popular athleisure pieces and activewear since 2016.
ALEXACHUNG: Alexa Chung
Alexa Chung has done it all. The fashion star has modeled, starred in style-focused shows, and featured as an almost permanent guest of front-row fashion shows. She also has the bragging rights to the 2010 style award from the British Fashion Council for embodying the spirit of British fashion.
This It-Girl of British fashion has some incredibly excellent style; thus, her brand Alexa Chung was an apparent trajectory. The line features a quintessentially British style that is both stylish and effortless.
Fabletics: Kate Hudson
This widely popular activewear line is rooted in a subscription-based service. The mission of the brand is to help women on their journeys to health. The brand has been running since 2013, and it includes sneakers and leggings, among others.
However, it has received significant love from celebs like Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato, who have gone as far as to collaborate with the brand. So, how successful is it? The brand is reported to open 75 stores in the U.S and overseas.
Good American: Khloé Kardashian
Next up is this inclusive denim wear brand. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian partnered with Emma Gerde to launch the brand. Kardashian has said the brand is focused on breaking barriers.
Good American is also one of the only denim brands to feature a size 15. They recognized a significant return on jeans in sizes 14 and 16. Thus, they created size 15 to suit their customer’s needs. They also offer athletic wear and bodysuits.
Rihanna put the beauty world at a standstill with the launch of Fenty Beauty. The industry-changing event was not the last of Rihanna’s business empire. The star then launched her lingerie line Savage x Fenty at the New York Fashion Week in 2018.
Rihanna went on to continue her fashion domination. The star made history once again when she became the first black female designer under LVMH. LVMH houses top luxury brands like Dior, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, and Fendi.
