Avril Lavigne for Abbey DawnQuite possibly now-single Avril Lavigne wants her new fashion line to be tight-fitting.

The “Girlfriend” singer launched her clothing collection, Abbey Dawn, on Monday and revealed that she wanted the designs to be as feminine as possible:

“I have a very particular style. I want it to be available to a lot of girls, and I want it to be affordable. What’s really important to me is that everything fits well and is well-made, so I try everything on and approve it all. I’m making sure that I think people in their 20s are going to wear it because it’s going to be a sexy fit, not just, ‘Oh, T-shirts and hoodies.’ The hoodies are slimming. It’s not a thick, bulky material.”

The collection, which caters for all age groups, is named after Avril’s childhood nickname, and she says that it was inspired by her own style: “It has a lot of hot pinks and blacks and stars and purple and zebra. Basically, everything I wear.”

Katie Holmes set to unveil Katie & YangRemember when Katie Holmes appeared at the Tropic Thunder premiere in that awful dress she designed? Well, prepare to bear witness to a matching clothing line resembling that dress.

Despite mixed feelings among fashion blogs regarding her fashion ventures, Mrs. Cruise appears to think that Miuccia Prada rubbed off on her enough during those Miu Miu ads to put out her own line.

Katie and her stylist Jeanne Yang will be putting out an entire collection most likely in similar taste to the star’s style. The “premium designer” line, labeled Katie & Yang, will include both women’s and children’s wear.

Said to be full of “classic fare,” the clothes will be sold exclusively at Maxfield in Los Angeles this fall.

With her acting resume, stint on Broadway, performance on So You Think You Can Dance?, and now this designing gig, Katie seems so confused as to what her calling in life truly is.

Britney Spears in Candie's Ad

Avril Lavigne’s clothing line isn’t the only that can be purchased at Kohl’s. The department store is also the place where Candie’s - Britney Spears’ fashion sponsor - is exclusively sold.

While we’re used to seeing the singer dressed in less clothing, these pics are for the company’s fall campaign…so she kinda had to dress for the weather.

Britney also sports clothing by Candie’s in her new video for “Radar.” You can view that clip plus several other pics from the print campaign after the jump.

Avril LavigneWhile I doubt most people have been keeping up with or really given a second thought about her clothing choices, the Canadian pop star is forging ahead with her “fashion” career.

One year after launching Abbey Dawn, an apparel line for juniors, in Kohl’s department stores, the “Girlfriend” singer is close to introducing a collection for an even younger set. The selections, which will be available in about two weeks, will include layered tees, leggings and kid-friendly skulls.

Fashion design isn’t the only thing Lavigne is experimenting with these days. Black Star, a new fragrance she helped create, is due out sometime this summer.

Miley Cyrus is a fan of high fashionIn what can only turn out to be a coma-inducing interview in next month’s issue of Elle, Miley Cyrus talks about her “fashion line” for Wal-Mart:

“Oh my God, I’m so stoked! It’s a lot of peasanty, flowy tops, hippie and loose and sexy, like boho chill mixed with English-rocker-esque. Plaids, studs, rips, cool colors. The jeans are my favorite part of the entire line. Because, like, literally, this is going to good for, like, Middle America, and it will be great for kids that really want to be in fashion but they don’t have it available.”

After reading that remark, I greatly laud any journalist who has interviewed that girl. Kids who want to be in fashion but don’t have it available? It’s called thrift stores and the internet, Miley. But wait, there’s more!

“I would pay $500 for the jeans that we make for $20,” she said. “I’m really into high fashion.” I died a little inside when I read that. Christian Lacroix most likely put on his last couture show yesterday, and Miley Cyrus puts out a line for Wal-Mart and has the audacity to claim that she is really into high fashion. Will her egregious reign ever end?

.Anna Sui for Target

As if the fall release date wasn’t torturous enough, fans of Anna Sui and Gossip Girl now have the look book to fawn over until then.

The nineteen looks (which you can see after the jump) are based upon the individual styles of Blair, Jenny, Vanessa, and Serena. Of all sets, I think that Blair’s classy, high-collared looks are the cutest; Serena’s monochrome would have won if it weren’t for the vest and leggings with bows. Jenny’s black, red, and white palette strike me as punk-inspired and have potential; however, I tend to fear the prints and patterns used. Vanessa’s set is very bohemian, although I’m not sure as to why they chose such an ugly palette of orange and brown.

You can expect to see Anna Sui’s line hit Target stores and online starting September 13.

Angela Missoni55-year-old designer Angela Missoni is looking to follow in the footsteps of her fashion counterparts and team up with a high street store to launch a new line of clothes aimed at teenage girls. According to Angela, “I would like to do something with H&M because I think it is a very powerful way to reach younger girls now.” Other H&M collaborators include Matthew Williamson, Comme des Garcons and Viktor and Rolf.

Angela Missoni also has no problem with models and actresses designing their own clothing collections, as long as they’re passionate about fashion. Making mention of Sienna Miller’s Twenty8Twelve label, Angela said: “These girls do pick up knowledge by being around fashion, so it doesn’t bother me if Sienna does her own range - she has a genuine passion for clothes, so it’s not just about her using her name.”

Other celebrities to have designed their own clothing lines for stores include Kate Moss, Madonna and Lily Allen.


Twilight T-ShirtThere is a craze going on right now for all things . It seems that the Harry Potter fans have grown up and moved onto a more romantic story of forbidden love between a vampire and a mortal. Personally, I don’t see anything romantic about an immortal being who sucks the blood from their victims, but to each his own. So to curb the desire to get your hands on any and all merchandise brandished by the faces of Edward and Bella, or Jacob, Hot Topic has a line of official Twilight clothing and merchandise from tee shirts to body shimmer. Go crazy Twilighters!
