When it comes to celebrity backed fashion lines, some musicians may want to ease up on the designing, and just stick to making hits in the studio. The 2011 debut of Kanye West’s eponymous collection failed to impress fashion critics, and his recent collaboration with hip French brand A.P.C. has also been slammed by fans and critics alike. But not all celebs have a hard time topping the music charts and shattering sartorial must-have lists. Take Gwen Stefani or Pharrell Williams, for example, who have taken the time to curate collections that are aesthetically appealing and actually wearable. And it’s not just music artists who are creating on point collections. Wild-child turned boho mama, Nicole Richie has two successful lines under her belt including Winter Kate and an accessory collection, House of Harlow 1960. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s, The Row, earned them a coveted CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) award. Take a look at the 15 best and worst celebrity fashion lines, and start stocking your closet right now!
WORST: Beyonce, House of Dereon
The fact that Beyonce, the co-owner of House of Dereon, is rarely seen wearing pieces from the ready-to-wear line speaks for itself. We love that the collection is a collaborative effort with her mother, Tina Knowles, but the passe prints emblazoned on cropped jackets and sheer skirts will undoubtedly land anyone on the worst dressed list.
