If someone were to pen a memoir on how to survive in Hollywood, the advice would maybe include some the following. Hold onto your looks for as long as humanly possible. Find projects (or reality shows) that show off your fabulous talents. If you start to get bored or career success begins to wane have publicist get you on Dancing with the Stars. Or do what Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham, Lindsay Lohan and Justin Timberlake have all done-start a fashion line.

 Today celebs are not only taking over magazine covers, they are also taking over the racks as designers. Now at Celebgawking, we don’t think everyone should be designing clothes in an already over-satuturated market(ahem….House of Dereon). But there are some celebrities, whose constant ability to dress and impress, have us waiting with baited breath to see what they wear next (Kate Moss).

The first rule of successful celeb fashion lines: don’t start unless you have been appropriately photographed on looking nothing less than perfect on the red carpet. When not to not to start your own line? When you routinely make the worst dressed list or Joan Rivers unmercifully tears you apart on E!. You know who you are. Perhaps they can follow the footsteps of some of these fashion-forward folks below. All of whom hope to be a name in your closet sometime in the near future.

 You may have loved her music, now you can love her clothes. Gwen Stefani has proven her talent on the radio waves and for the past few years her fashion line, L.A.M.B.  has been growing fast and furious. Some of her famous peers love Gwen’s stuff as well fr0m Reese Witherspoon to Cameron Diaz.

 You may remember a few years ago that Kate Moss got herself into a bucket load of trouble. However her career as a model and endorsing high end labels has now helped her launch her own brand at TopShop.

Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen have one of the few fashion lines flourishing in this crap economy.  Elizabeth & James  can be found at high-end boutiques.

The Olsen twins have had their fare share of experience flaunting their style over the years.  When they started their line The Row, they unleashed a fair amount of high end fashion for those that appreciated clothing as much as they did. Those with smaller wallets however will appreciate their new line Elizabeth & James, named after two of their younger siblings.

Sarah Jessica Parker may wear haute couture on a regular basis but it doesn’t mean she can’t designer for the “every” gal. Her line, Bitten, was created to be laid back, fun and cute just like it’s creator. Although Steve & Barry’s, the store that carried her line, is out of business, we hope to see her clothes reappear at another department store soon.

David Arquette has always had a unique way of dressing and now you can follow the yellow brick road to his fashion influence with his new line, Propr. Arquette started the eco-friendly fashion line with musician Ben Harper as an ode to everything unique and vintage. Arquette considers Propr an affordable luxury brand that carries both mens and womenswear. Check out a video of Arquette & Harper’s unique culmination here.

We like Justin with or without his denim.

We know he can sing and dance and score gorgeous girlfriends. Is there anything Justin Timberlake can’t do? Apparently not now that he adds another notch on his belt with his denim line William Rast. We’ve seen some of his girlfriends, past and present wearing his jeans and now you can too.

We know, you’re sick of hearing about Lauren Conrad and how much we love her and how sad she is leaving The Hills. The Lauren Conrad Collection may be halting for a while due to the economy but we have a feeling she’ll be back someday soon. The fifth and last season of LC on The Hills premieres tonight.

LA Fashion Week & Celeb-inspired trends for Spring

In Uncategorized on March 23, 2009 at 12:11 am

There’s Paris, there’s Milan and of course who can forget the tents at Bryant Park in New York City? But what about L.A. Fashion Week?  Many disregard L.A .Fashion Week altogether and some wonder if it’s slowly fading. L.A. Fashion Week may not have the heavy hitters like Anna Wintour but it does bring out a gaggle of glitz and glamour from the celebs who know a thing or two about cleaning up nicely. Even in a recession, Hollywood managed to pull out all the stops this year with an eco-fashion event and an evening of 20th Century Glamour at MOCA. The end of fashion week also marks the beginning of new celeb-inspired looks. Here’s a few iconic style-charged favorites from prim and proper to provocative.

Soon to be mother of two Nicole Ritchie may be busy with daughter Harlow, rocker-daddy Joe Madden and her budding new jewelry line House of Harlow. Yet somehow Ritchie still finds time to rock her signature Bohemian style with this one-shouldered Zandra Rhodes Kaftan.

Sure black can get boring  but Nicky Hilton shows us how darling accessories can do the opposite. The oversized rosette/flower popping from one shoulder and the Jimmy Choo’s adorning those stems keep her far from ordinary.

This week we caught the Keeping up with the Kardashian star strolling the high end shops of Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood. No one loves shopping more than Kim Kardashian. Here’s our favorite E!  reality star pulling together several trends at once with a classic Chanel  bag, skinny/ripped jeans, oversize glasses and a funky scarf.

Kristen Stewart in Herve Leger

We loved Twilight and we love Kristen Stewart, who shows off her fun side in this striped Herve Leger dress in this season’s popular color, orange! Bold stripes and colors with a super short hemline are great for the more adventurous types.

Shedding the baby fat for Jessica Alba was a breeze and nothing shows off a great bod better than a geometric print cinched at the waist with a great belt. This Miu Miu top and vintage clutch above are classy and fun without being boring.

We have never seen Vanessa Hudgens dress like crap

Not everyone can pull off skinny jeans but tween star Vanessa Hudgens sure can. We’re happy that the off the shoulder look keeps reappearing as it does here in Vanessa’s Bohemian-inspired  top by Diane von Furstenberg.

Angie Harmon ready for summer

Haven’t shed that winter weight? Is it hot and need to get glammed up? A sundress is a great way to look pulled together when your feeling anything but glam. Orange is a popular color this season so try to incorporate it with bold stripes like this Chanel  number worn by Angie Harmon.

Hills star Audrina Patridge rocks one of celebgawkings favorite colors (navy blue) with this rocker-chic Whitley Kross ensemble that is part sweet with ruffles and strapless bodice but also short enough to make it edgy.

Julia Roberts proves that being a mother doesn’t mean you have to go from fab to frumpy. Here she is in the furthest thing from mom jeans, looking extra tiny with a cinched belt and three quarter inch sleeves.

Orange you glad to see Rose McGowan out of black and into something bright? The designer that got Rose McGowan out of black threads? Loris Azzaro. We think Rose looked stunning in this simple orange dress.

Lauren Conrad unrolling her favorite trends for her Spring collection

Lauren Conrad unrolling her favorite trends for her Spring collection

We’re sad to see Lauren Conrad leave The Hills and that her clothing line is taking a hiatus. Here’s a few shots from her
Spring collection, which epitomize California-chic style at it’s best. Floral prints seem to be making a comeback. Flirty ruffles and short hemlines make a sweet dress demure. Long and flowy is also a signature of LC’s collection and as we see above, one of Lauren’s favorites. We hope her line comes back!

Yellow never looked so good. Mrs. Ashton Kutcher hit the 2009 Miami International Film Festival to screen her short film “Streak” and looked radiant and very South Beach-esque in this yellow dress and strappy heels.
