Famous actors and musicians tend to have a lot of access and influence in the fashion industry thanks to their celebrity status, so it’s not too surprising that a lot of them branch into careers as designers themselves. Here are 15 celebrities who used their creativity and interest in fashion to launch successful lines of their own.
1. Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson may have come off as a little ditzy in her reality show, but the singer might be a mastermind when it comes to business moves. She started a fashion line called the Jessica Simpson Collection that sells clothing, handbags and shoes, and in 2010 her line pulled in $750 million. That could buy a lot of Chicken-of-the-Sea.
