Hey, celebrities! We’re talking to you Fergie, Hilary Duff, Avril Lavigne, and the rest of young Hollywood. Listen up: The whole celebrity-turned-designer thing has got to stop. We know you’re not listening. In fact, it’s quite clear that y’all really don’t care what fashion people think. You just keep announcing new deals. This week alone brought news of two more to add to the list: Criss Angel and Sheryl Crow.
Angel’s new line is called MF13 (sounds like a movie rating, doesn’t it?). He partnered with Dussault Apparel to create the line of clothing and accessories to be sold at the Criss Angel Mindfreak store at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas. Judging from his style, we’re expecting lots of leather, skulls on printed tees, pewter rings, and awful patterned fedoras. As for Crow, her line of jeans, vests, and T-shirts called the Bootheel Trading Co. debuted in Dillard’s stores this week. What to expect: denim, denim, and more denim. Sheryl loves denim.
We’re really trying to maintain our composure over here and congratulate already successful magicians and musicians on expanding their niches. But it’s just so hard. What’s next, Bret Michaels doing a bandanna line? (Oh, please say no.) —Sharon Clott
