Celebrity Fashion Lines - Gwen Stefani and Eve
Tons of Tinseltown celebs have launched their own clothing line, accessories line or cosmetics line. Check out two of the music industry's superstars-turned-fashion designers - Gwen Stefani and Eve!
Gwen Stefani - Be a L.A.M.B.There's no doubt that the ultra-trendy Gwen Stefani is a dynamic icon. She achieved world-wide success while fronting the ska-punk/pop band, No Doubt, and is now riding solo with her debut album, L.A.M.B., which stands for Love Angel Music Baby - all the things she loves most in the world! This is also the name of her clothing line, which she launched in late 2004. L.A.M.B. is priced in the $100-$300 range, and features all of Gwen's signature styles - bikini tops, Rasta-inspired colors, low-slung pants and bum flaps (a piece of fabric that looks like half of a pleated skirt, which can be attached to the back of pants, worn slung across one hip or stacked for a layered effect).
This girl from the O.C., whose style is a mix of skater punk, California mall rat, 1940s glamor and Hello Kitty, also designs handbags and accessories, which you can find at LeSportsac. Watch for the debut of Gwen Stefani's new spring clothing line during New York's Fashion Week on September 16, 2005, as well as her new secondary fashion line, Harajuku Lovers, which is inspired by Japan's Harajuku district. If you're not sure what Harajuku style is, just take a look at Gwen's back-up dancers.
Eve - Eve's FetishEve is one of rap's hottest queens, who has been tearin' up the charts with hits like Who's That Girl, Gangsta Lovin' and Let Me Blow Ya Mind with Gwen Stefani. She also stars in her own UPN comedy called Eve, where she plays a fashion designer with a hot career but a not-so-hot love life. Well life imitated art, and Eve launched her own clothing line in 2003 called Fetish Clothing LLC, which is sold online at Club Urban. It's a wardrobe of mostly sporty pieces (funky t-shirts, low-rise jeans and velour track suits) with an urban edge. Prices range from $28-88 for tops and $48-148 for a pair of jeans.
The trademark of the clothing line is a devil's tail, but unlike other designer clothes that feature the designer's name or initials, Fetish appears only as an abstract image or just has the outline of the letter "F." She eventually plans to introduce accessories, fragrances and swimwear to the collection, so stay tuned for a whole new look when Eve unleashes the Fall 2005 line!
