THE TEN: Best Celebrity Clothing Lines

Styled by Princess Glover

Celebrity clothing lines are a dime a dozen nowadays, having become so unreasonably commonplace that it might be safe to say you’re not a real star unless you manage to churn out one (though you couldn’t even dress yourself without the help of a professional). I’ll be the first to say leave it the ones who know what they’re doing, but I will also say that there have been a few, very few that not only have managed to stay relevant as far as fashion is concerned, but exemplifies the true spirit of design: originality, creativity and quality–a rarity amongst the famous. Here are the exceptions:

1. Elizabeth and James by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen- because they don’t try so hard.

2. L.A.M.B by Gwen Stefani- the shoes are beyond dope.

3. J.Lo, Sweetface by Jennifer Lopez- even though Sweetface went belly up, she’s the one that started it all, and don’t act like you’ve never owned (or wanted to own) at least one pair of her jeans or one of those ghetto fabulous velour sweatsuits. Guilty.

4. Kate Moss for Topshop- a fashionista’s wet dream

5. House of Harlow by Nicole Richie- hate the girl, love the jewelry.

6. Benjamin Bixby by Andre 3000- gettin his grown man on.

7. Twenty8Twelve by Sienna Miller- Does she still qualify as a celebrity? Nonetheless spring/summer 09 is looking pretty good…

8. Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony- hipster chic at its finest.

9. The Victoria Beckham Collection- this shameless clotheshorse knows her shit.

10. William Rast by Justin Timberlake- I think we were all surprised that this didn’t turn out as bad as we had assumed.

AND THE NOMINEES ARE…

GQ’s second annual Best New Menswear Designers in America awards is on the horizon and the nominees are out. The project, in collaboration with the CFDA, will select one of six up and coming designers to design a capsule collection for Levi’s to be shown at a special event in New York City February 11, 2009, along with $50,000 cash. The list is pretty much legit, with recently recognized labels that have made a distinctive impact in the world of men’s fashion. May the best man win:

Style Icon: Coco Sumner

Styled by Corey Moran

Coco Sumner is no stranger to the fashion, and is more than just another rock star offspring turned fashionista. With a couple Burberry campaigns under her belt, Coco is here to leave her own mark on the fashion world. Coco has been seen looking as hipster grunge as Cory Kennedy and as (dare I say) chic as Agyness Deyn. Recently seen at Andre 3000′s Benjamin Bixby party in London, Coco is just another youngster who is here to morph the fashion world.
