Celebrity Fashion Lines We Don\'t Want to Wear (And the Lines We Do)
Give a celebrity some fabric, a pair of scissors, and the results are either a fashion high or low. Sometimes they reveal something totally seamless, other times they just look like dreaded rips in the fabric. Regardless, they’re always eye catching and we’ve put together our list of celeb-helmed fashion labels we’d die to wear—and others we wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing.

Lines we DON’T want to wear:

Deena Cortese’s Short Couture – The “Jersey Shore” guidette is already taking steps post-shore and it’s into similar waters that cast mates JWOWW, Snooki, and Sammi have already dipped in: fashion. “It’s going to be for girls, skinny and heavy, with tight skirts, but also flowy, so you can wear a belt,” Deena described to Buzzfeed, in her plea to attract the highly coveted audience of every woman ever. Even the ones that especially like to wear belts! No designs are out yet, but based on that sentence alone we’ll pass on her confused fashion sense whose only direction appears to be the dive bar bathroom to vomit.

Licious Clothing by Coco – In 2012, I don’t trust a website that looks like it was manufactured on Geocities in 2001—this is the vibe of Licious’ online clothing site. Coco calls it “clothing that hugs your body to make you feel sexy and very comfortable,” even though it looks like you’re totally suffocating (in bad taste, that is).

Heidiwood – Real life Barbie doll Heidi Montag’s line was a tacky mess of low cut zebra print tank tops, shiny satin shorts, and other derivative displays of zero creativity. No one wanted to wear it and now nobody has to. It was discontinued in 2008.

Arthur George – Like submerging a single toe into the pool before jumping in, Rob Kardashian is testing the waters of the fashion world with an overpriced sock line (“But it’s Egyptian cotton!” “Yeah, from Robert Kardashian…”) of bold, vibrant patterns. There’s a fine line between classy and klassy and this looks like the latter.

New Nicole Richie – When Nicole’s Macy’s look book hit the web, we were somewhat disappointed. There was just something sort of uninspiring (predictable) about the boho x leather x boho + more boho formula she’s designing off of. Unfortunately it looks tired, like costume pieces from “That ‘70s Show.” Nicole is on rerun status here. Seen it all before and nothing exciting.

Lines we DO want to wear:

Paper Crown by Lauren Conrad – She might have pretended like she was working for Kelly Cutrone’s People’s Revolution on that totally unscripted show “The Hills,” but her passion for fashion can’t be faked. Always taking notes in New York Fashion Week circles she runs in, her paper crown label is full of cute and classic closet pieces for the office and the cocktail party.

L.A.M.B. – Gwen Stefani’s label is the pinnacle of how a pop rocker translates their personal style into a respectable fashion label. L.A.M.B. (Love Angel Music Baby) actually feels like clothes that make you feel like you’re aspiring into your OWN style, not just Gwen’s, which tends to be the problem with other rockers-turned-designers like Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn (an honorable DON’T mention).

Jessica Simpson Collection – Just retire from singing forever, because you’re on your way to becoming a one-woman department store, Jessica. The singer turned designer’s fashion empire is on its way to possibly hit the $1 billion dollar glass ceiling with shoes, handbags, dresses, and accessories that are girlish and affordable. William Rast by Justin Timberlake – Like Rob’s, J.T.’s label is another family heritage combo (William is his grandfather’s first name, Rast is co-designer’s grandfather’s last) except this one has a real vision we want to wear. Especially those jeans. Guess it doesn’t hurt that Johan Lindeberg of label J. Lindeberg is a creative director.

Old Nicole Richie – Current Nicole Richie looks like she’s taking this whole fashion thing a little toooooo seriously. In her former designs, it actually looked like she was having fun—but maybe now with all the self-pressure of that initial success, and juggling too many lines simultaneously, she seems to have self sabotaged her process.
