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.
2. The Olsen Twins
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen stopped acting when they were pretty young after being child stars and completely switched over to fashion. They first started their high end line The Row, later the midrange Elizabeth and James, and then a child’s line called Olsenboye. Their collective fashion empire is worth over a billion dollars. No wonder they don’t feel like joining the Fuller House cast.
