Celebrity Style: Clothing Lines – Good or Bad Idea?

Another fashion debate up for question: how you feel about celebrities who start their own clothing line? Do you think they are criticized even more than actual fashion designers? Should they stick to their day jobs or keep venturing out even if they have no fashion designer background?

I personally thought Kanye would absolutely kill it the first time around. His personal style is out of this world. I guess not everyone who can dress nicely can be a fashion designer. A lot of people were extremely shocked about how bad DW ended up. However, it was his first time. L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani, on the other hand, always wows me. Everything from her collection is always fresh, fits properly and has an overall theme. I think Gwen really understands what looks good on a woman. In my opinion, celebrities are already under a close microscope, so when they do something out of their element – like design a clothing line – the media and the entire world is basically waiting to bash them if they don’t live up to the hype.

    I actually like how Kanye’s line came out (besides the fur). I think it’s cool when a man can design something that looks like feminine versions of what they’re wearing. Perfect example are the shoes, he clearly has a thing for ankle straps/adornments and he interpreted that on a woman’s shoe. You can always tell when a celeb has a true sense of style, like Gwen for example. She always incorporates stripes, rastafari colors and things she’s always gravitated toward. I can’t take a line created by the Kardashians seriously though, because like the girls themselves, everything is so contrived in my opinion. I guess it really depends on the celebrity
