Steven Tyler’s fashion is sort of all over the place, ranging from leopard print blouses to pirate shirts. Love it or hate it, he’s definitely interesting to look at. And Andrew Charles’ creative director, Andy Hilfiger, agrees. Which is why he chose Steven as the face of the new Andrew Charles sportswear line.

Tyler has been shooting ads for the campaign along with his daughter, Chelsea Tyler. “I love working with him,” Chelsea said about her Aerosmith dad. “It’s so relaxed and we have a lot of fun with it, and I really love so much of this line. I’m happy to be supporting it.”

The Andrew Charles men’s collection includes bold cotton shirts, denim, and a “Rock Scarf” collection. For women, there are jeans, embellished tops, skirts and tanks.

“I’ve been wearing this stuff forever,” Tyler says, presumably talking about both the men’s and women’s line. Hell, if they had a little girl’s line, he’d probably be stealing their leopard print leggings, too. “It’s just another side of it to think I’d be able to sell this and pass it on.”

Fashion and rock n’ roll just seem to go together. I’m not sure what it is. It probably has something to with recreating the free-spirited, bohemian lifestyle of a rocker, even though there’s no chance we’ll ever be one. Ever since Jimi Hendrix wore a tie-dyed top and headscarf, fashion has had a place in music. Hell, probably even before that.

It explains why there are so many musical offspring that become fashion designers. We’re rounding up our favorite rock star daughters-turned-fashion designers.

Stella McCartney: All hail the Queen. Stella McCartney is the daughter of Paul McCartney. Maybe you’ve heard of him? He was in a little band called The Beatles. It’s no wonder that Stella would become one of the most talented British fashion designers. She made her first jacket at the age of 13, and three years later, she was interning for Christian Lacroix. After a career that involved names like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci, McCartney made a name for herself. In 2000, she received the VH1/Vogue Designer of the Year Award. Stella is famous for her laid back but sexy, ready-to-wear designs.

Georgia May Jagger: The daughter of legendary Rolling Stones rocker, Mick Jagger, launched a successful line of denim called Hudson Jeans Collection in March. And Georgia May says she’s not ruling out creating an entire line. “I’d love to do a fashion label in the future,” she said recently. I've been thinking a lot recently about maybe making a line of little dresses, so maybe one day. I'm really happy designing jeans at the moment though."

Jade Jagger: And since her half-sis has jeans covered, Mick Jagger’s other daughter decided to take on jewelry. (Mick has seven kids, the “Personal Life” section of his Wiki page is reeeeally long). The 39 year-old designer began making high end jewelry in 1996. The designer says she enjoys adding "all sorts of symbols and thoughts into my jewelry and little things they mean to you.” There are a lot of skulls, though. A lot of skulls.

Nicole Richie: The daughter of Lionel Richie brought Boho Chic back from the 70s, where it was just sitting there, collecting dust. Richie made hippie look good again, and she decided to make a career of her style. Nicole made her fashion debut with a jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960. Two years later, the line was extended to apparel and shoes. In 2010, she created a full-on line of women’s clothing, called Winter Kate. The line is highly inspired by timeless prints. Paisley, for example. But good paisley, not grandpa paisley. Richie recently participated as a mentor in the new NBC reality show, Fashion Star.

Lourdes Leon: Madonna created a fashion line called Material Girl for Macy’s. But since Madge is 53 years old and thus far from being a “girl,” she recruited the help of her teenage daughter, Lourdes. As expected, the styles are edgy and totally rockin’, as they range from snakeskin leggings to cropped Union Jack tops. The kicker in all of this is that Lourdes was under the age of fifteen when she helped her mom with these designs.
