The Best Of Celebrity Fashion Lines
These days, many celebrities branch out and explore other avenues of creativity. For some, it’s making the transition from singer/musician to actor, or vice versa. Another natural avenue celebrities explore involves the fashion world.
This past week, the Internet was abuzz with news that TV star Rachel Bilson (The OC, Hart of Dixie) would be teaming up with designer Steve Madden to launch a women’s shoe line for shoemint.com. Country singer LeAnn Rimes also recently divulged her interest in stepping into the fashion arena.
This got me thinking about some of my favorite shoes from celebrity designers. There are tons who venture out into the fashion realm, but there are a few that have really caught my attention. Let me show you some of my picks. 🙂
The shoes and accessories from the Jessica Simpson line are fantastic. From heels, to flats and boots, Jessica Simpson shoes encompass retro style, with a great contemporary twist. Jessica Simpson handbags are not only great for everyday use, but add a certain off-the-runway appeal to your look. I love the shoes and accessories in this collection. And the styles prove you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for great style.
Jessica Simpson Aura Boot
Shop: Jessica Simpson Aura
This is a great boot for fall/winter wear. It’s versatile (you can wear it with a skirt or over your favorite jeans), and the layered detail adds interest.
Jessica Simpson Bliss Tote Bag
Shop: Jessica Simpson Bliss
The bliss tote is not your ordinary handbag. I love the lizard print pattern, easy double carry handles, and it’s a great size.
Carlos By Carlos Santana
For decades, musician Carlos Santana has been known for his superior musical chops. Santana has won countless awards for his work, and has collaborated with some of music’s hottest and most talented acts. Now he can add a successful footwear line to his list of accolades. Carlos By Carlos Santana shoes are, ” inspired by the passion and energy that surround Santana’s music.”
Carlos Santana’s shoes are fun, funky and fashion-forward. What’s also really great about Santana’s line is that it gives back. Part of the proceeds from sales of his shoes are given to the Milagro (miracle) Foundation. Santana’s charity makes grants to community-based organizations around the world working with children in the areas of the arts, education and health.
Carlos By Carlos Santana Halo Sandal
Like other shoes from the Carlos collection, this sandal boasts show-stopping appeal. Carlos shoes are perfect for a night on the town, and this sandal is no exception. The leopard print pattern, daring heel and wrap-around strap detail make this shoe a great choice for your evening attire.
Fergalicious & Fergie
There’s simply no doubt that Fergie is a star. She’s a successful solo artist. She’s sold millions of albums with her group The Black Eyed Peas. And her talent is certainly present in her footwear collections as well. Both Fergalicious and Fergie give you a runway-ready look at a great price. Whether you’re looking for a casual flat or a pair of daring heels, you’ll feel like a superstar when you step out in shoes from Fergie’s collections.
Fergalicious Kordial Boot
Shop: Fergalicious Kordial
From the faux fur trim to the great heel height, this is one of my favorites from the Fergalicious collection.
Fergie Varsity Boot
Shop: Fergie Varsity
This winning boot is the definition of trend-right style. Made from genuine leather, this standout boot has wrap-around strap and buckle detail, an easy side zipper and just-right heel height. The Varsity boot is definitely on my shopping list for this season. 🙂
