Celebrities and fashion, 2 things that are synonymous with modern day pop culture and when the 2 things collide you have the recipe to print cash. In the crazy world of ‘celebreneurs’ anything is possible, I mean take Kanye West launching a women’s wear line at Paris Fashion Week, if this is anything to go by the next few years is going to throw up some crazy collab’s.
Making the break to super stardom is a stiff enough task as it is, pop stardom, acting royalty, being super famous is a time consuming business and to add in ‘fashion designer’ to the job title seems an almost impossible task, but believe it or not there are some that have made the transition seamlessly. Below we showcase 5 celebs that have made the transition, some have smashed it, others are not so much!
Posh Spice, the lesser half of Team Beckham may not be the best singer in the world but this girl means business. With cash sloshing around the Beckham coffers the natural thing to do was create a global fashion brand, right? Well in this instance spot on. As if the onslaught of David Beckham spin off’s was not enough, Posh wanted in on the action. In 2006 she decided to put her money where her mouth is and launched DVB which after an encouraging reaction saw her very successful dress collection launched in 2008.
Posh not content with simply putting her name to this project actually designs the product too, under her Victoria Beckham label she found cult following hitting the sweet spot with both celebs and us common people a like. All the dresses carry Victoria’s hallmark of being figure hugging with a mid calf cut, and unlike her singing prowess the range has have had lavish praise from the press, beware though, these do not come cheap.
The numbers speak for themselves, as a brand the Beckhams are up there, and Posh is now valued at over $400 million has carved herself out a very successful fashion brand, whilst being the wife of one on most famous men on the planet, world famous singer, and mother of four. Oh, and they have recently signed a deal that values ‘brand Beckham’ at $1 Billion. Not bad at all.
“Essentially I design what I want to wear and what I feel is right for the moment” Victoria Beckham.
