Rachel Zoe hasn't let caring for her infant son slow her down in the slightest. Yesterday, she showed her first resort collection for her namesake line, the first new collection since she debuted in January. Her love for all things '70s continues strong via wide-leg pants and Studio 54-worthy dresses. She also showed party dresses aplenty, smart timing for a collection that will hit stores right in time for all holiday parties. Click our slideshow to see Rachel Zoe's latest collection.
Kim Kardashian has moved on from designing sexy clothes and jewelry with her sisters to designing baubles with Pascal Mouawad. Last night marked the official launch of their jewelry collaboration, a collection of rocker glam pieces that are sold on REVOLVEclothing.com, most of them under $100. Kim attended the launch party in a casually chic outfit of skinny black jeans, a fitted blazer, and Louboutins, but we had an eye on her accessories: they're all from the new line. Here are 10 highlights from the new collection, which you can shop right now.
The celebrity designer train just got a huge dose of A-list — that's because Angelina Jolie is hopping on it! The actress, UN goodwill ambassador, and busy mom has teamed up with former CEO of Asprey, Robert Procop, who's been designing pieces for her for the past decade, to create a classic collection she will also likely wear. The first of the duo's collaboration came to life on the red carpet at Salt's Berlin premiere (below). You can also see some pieces — namely a vintage diamond choker and yellow sapphire, cushion-cut earrings — in Angelina's new flick, The Tourist. But unlike many celebrity lines, this collection won't be on sale in stores. Rather, it will be sold privately through Procop's clients, with all of the proceeds going to her charity, the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.
The celebrity designers niche continues to grow. We recently got word of a possible Leighton Meester clothing collection, and now there's a rumor about a Katy Perry footwear line. The pop singer is said to be in talks with shoe master Steve Madden, who's also been busy buying Betsey Johnson's label. No confirmations by either party as of yet, but if this collaboration were to come to fruition, would you be excited for a Katy Perry shoe collection? Glitter, jewels, leopard, red, retro flair — I can only imagine the snazzy possibilities.
Inspired by retro-glam icon Marilyn Monroe and modeled by little sis Ali, Lindsay Lohan's 6126 Spring '11 collection is a tribute to femininity and classic allure. Lace predominates on minidresses, blazers, and pants; sequins-meet-sheer on sheath dresses and tees. It's the pinup girl with modern sensibility — and everything seems to float as if in a Hollywood dream. Click through for a closer glimpse of the glam.
Can it be? Is Leighton Meester going to join the celebrity designers gang? According to an interview with Vogue UK, it's a possibility: "The more I think about it the more it sounds like something I would want to do. I don't know if it'd be any time soon but I'd really like to work on a collaboration with somebody — I always have ideas for stuff like that." And who might she draw inspiration from? "I really like Cate Blanchett, she's got a really interesting take on things . . . she experiments but is very much a woman. I think Helen Mirren is very sexy and of course I love Audrey Hepburn." Let's not hold our breath, but I would love to someday see what Leighton could create. And judging from her fashion-forward looks, she's got the eye. Step inside to see her 10 best.
Jessica Simpson, singer turned savvy business guru, has proved her worth in the retail world with a successful clothing, footwear, swimwear, lingerie, accessories, and, most recently, a denim line, which she promises will deliver great butts to many women. For Fall '10, look forward to dark rinse denim skinnies paired with slick wool coats, cargo pants contrasted with faux fur vests, and dressy jumpsuits. Furthermore, suede wraparound sandals and tough lace-up booties instantly add a modern, tough touch.
We sure didn't see this one coming: Target inked a deal with William Rast to design a collection for its next designer collaboration series. The collection, founded by Justin Timberlake and Trace Ayala, will include both women's and men's clothing. "The collection for Target was inspired by the essence of the William Rast brand — the iconography of biker culture and American denim heritage," said Colin Dyne, from William Rast. Price points are still under wraps, but it's sure to be way more affordable than the brand's namesake $95 to $595 collection. The line hits stores and online on Dec. 19.
It's been a while since we heard anything about Nicky Hilton's clothing line, Chick by Nicky Hilton, but now the socialite is coming out with costume jewelry for Fall. "I’m a crazy jewelry collector. I've always known since I was a teenager that I wanted to do a line. Whenever I bought something, whether at a flea market in Paris or a bazaar in India, I've been collecting pieces," she said. Nicky has paired up with Titan Brands to bring baubles — wholesaling from $35 to $480 — with themes like Art Deco (inspired by her mother and grandmother's David Webb pieces) and Spike and Snakes. The collection will first hit Endless.com exclusively, then Nicky will take her goods to department and specialty stores. Are you interested?
