It seems like a natural progression for celebrities to expand their empire. They develop perfumes, write books and many even create clothing lines. But we all know not all celeb clothing lines are created equal. For every successful, dapper Sean John collection, there's a Fetish, Eve's line that no one seems to even remember. We get it, A-listers think they naturally know fashion since they have access to the flyest threads, but that just isn't the case. Some of our favorite personalities have created the tacky, laughable garments that left us scratching our heads and questioning their taste.
Peep 7 celeb clothing lines that need to cease and desist.
House of Deréon
There's no denying Beyoncé
is a musical force to be reckoned with and when she steps out, heads turn. But why, oh why, is House of Deréon
every bit of underwhelming? We know you want to do it all Bey, but let this line rest in peace because we're not buying it (literally!)
Material Girl by Madonna
When it was revealed Madonna
was releasing a clothing line, 80s babies everywhere rejoiced, thinking we'd have an edgy line from the pop diva. But the collection is geared towards teeny boppers, poorly made and nothing we could ever envision a young Madonna wearing. We expected more from the classy dame who now speaks in a faux British accent
Last year the Kardashian sisters
debuted their line at Sears and affordability was the main selling point. But many pieces, including blazers, bodycon dresses and jumpsuits were $100. The only way you should spend $100 at Sears is if it's on an appliance, not for a clothing line from bootleg celebrities
6126 by Lindsay Lohan
paid homage to her idol Marilyn Monroe with the naming of her apparel line (6126 is Marilyn's bday
). But the line of leggings would not be approved by the glamorous Monroe.
Kimora Lee Simmons
stepped down from Baby Phat
a few years ago but it continues to be gaudy attire that straddles the line between juvenile and Friday night club attire.
line for men may have disappeared but Apple Bottoms
is still hanging in there with its cheap-o accessories and body hugging threads. And what's really disturbing are the childrens pieces. Do you really want your daughter wearing clothes named after a woman's backside?
