HOLLYWOOD—Celebrities have side jobs and even empires outside of their full-time jobs of being famous. Let’s take Jessica Biel who runs her own restaurant, Gwyneth Paltrow has her own lifestyle empire. Let’s look at some of the ventures by our beloved celebrities; Rihanna’s first foray into fashion landed her in a high-profile collaboration with the athletic brand Puma and her empire has been growing ever since.
She most recently dropped a lingerie line with Savage, complete with everything from basic bras to ’50 Shades or Grey’-esque pieces. She launched Fenty x Puma and Savage x Fenty. Lauren Conrad had the LC collection for a long time. She starred in the reality show “The Hills.” Her passion for fashion evolved into her own clothing line, LC Lauren Conrad. Beyoncé released the activewear line, Ivy Park. The Queen Bey released her line back in 2016. Her hubby Jay-Z launched Rocawear in 1999.
Victoria Beckham created the line, Victoria by Victoria Beckham. Sometimes if plan A doesn’t work out, you must go into plan B. For Spice Girls alum Victoria Beckham, nothing lasts forever including girl groups or boy bands. While, she had a brief solo career before launching her own line back in 2008, she has been a powerhouse designer ever since. Who could forget the adorable twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
The twins have not one, but two high-fashion brands. The Row and Elizabeth and James, that have transformed since their founding in 2006 and 2007. “Bridemaids” star Melissa McCarthy launched the inclusive brand Seven7. She introduced her size-inclusive line back in 2015 on Home Shopping Network, and it quickly expanded into a lucrative brand. The sizes range from 4 to 24 and include a variety of styles, from both business smart to staples like T-shirts and sweaters. The company isn’t currently taking orders.
How can we forget, the Kardashian-Jenner empire by sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, named after themselves, of course. They have partnered with major retailers like TopShop and PacSun to sell their clothes, including bathing suits and shoes. The beauty line is doing so well, that Kylie is now a billionaire. Another member of the Kardashian clan, Khloe Kardashian, who by the way has lost a tremendous amount of weight has launched her own company Good American with fashion executive Emma Grede. It’s basically everything you could want in wardrobe basis. There are bodysuits, jeans, and now athletic wear. Famous soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo created a men’s clothing line called CR7. His success is pure determination, so no, surprise there.
The latest celebrity with a fashion line, is Justin Bieber. Get ready for your wallet to be empty. Bieber just launched his new clothing line Drew House, and it’s beige and mustard. Everyone will be buying the hoodies, and the oversized T-shirt with a smiley face that will start at the price of $48, which is unisex. For $128 you can buy the corduroy hoodie, which looks very comfy. In the meantime, Hailey Bieber, is being forced to prove she’s actually the wife of famous pop star Justin Bieber.
According to published reports, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office sent the model a letter requesting written consent that proves she is in fact the wife of Justin Bieber, so she can use the last name for her clothing line. This will give permission for the trademark to be registered. Back in October 2018, she filed to register her new last name, along with the name HRB3. In he meantime, the USPTO needs Baldwin to explain in a statement that she gives “consent to the use and registration of my name, Hailey Bieber, as a trademark and/or service mark with the USPTO.”
They also want her to add more details on what type of clothing line she plans on designing and marketing; more specific clothing articles-instead of staying general with the topic. We have seen her photos as a model, however, she feels comfy in oversized clothing articles.
Rose’s Scoop: After 14 years together, Rafael Nadal is reportedly engaged to Mery Perello. Don’t forget to tune in to the Super Bowl on February 3, it will either be the Patriots or the Rams. Should be quite the interesting game! Good luck to both teams.
