You know and love their music, movies, and/or TV shows. But beyond acting chops or vocal chords you’d kill for, these celebrities also have an eye for design. Here are a few of our favorite celebrities who have found real success with their fashion lines:
It’s almost hard to remember a time when Jessica Simpson WASN’T a fashion designer. Her line has become extremely popular, in fact, it brings in roughly $1 billion annually. From clothing and shoes to underwear and handbags, Simpson does it all. She and her mom are heavily involved in each step of the design process, too.
Sarah Jessica Parker
After spending years playing shoe fanatic Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, it only makes that Sarah Jessica Parker would have learned a thing or two about footwear. Now the actress has her own line of shoes. Carrie would approve, and then spend her entire paycheck to purchase a few pairs.
She makes you laugh out loud on Modern Family, but the actress also has her own clothing line available at Kmart. If we wear it, do we get a Joe Manganiello look-alike as our husband? If so, sold.
It seems like J. Lo is everywhere these days. When she’s not performing in Vegas or traveling the world with her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, you can catch her designing her own clothing line for Kohl’s.
As if Queen Bey doesn’t do enough, she also has created Ivy Park, a line of activewear. Actress Laverne Cox is currently serving as the face of the brand.
When you want to copy Reese Witherspoon’s sweet, polished Southern style, all you have to do is snag a few pieces from her Draper James clothing line.
It’s nice to know that you can copy your favorite celebs’ style, even if you don’t have their budget thanks to their clothing lines.
