Mariah Carey Designs For HSN

It’s only a matter of days after we reported that Mariah Carey is officially pregnant, and yet there’s another news coming from the songstress.  Mrs. Cannon is going aboard the celebrity designers bandwagon by the new and lucrative deal with the Home Shopping Network.

Mariah Carey was tapped by HSN Inc.’s CEO, Mindy Grossman and she immediately jumped at the opportunity to develop her own collection of shoes and baubles. As she’s also known for her fragrance collections, Mariah is also looking forward to enhance her fragrance collections in her partnership with HSN.

Although claiming to be a non-wearer when it comes to jewelry, Mariah Carey will come out with a sparkling pavé-set initial pendants and butterfly earrings as key items for her jewelry line. As for other accessories, we’ve always known Mimi is big on boots, so expect nothing less than well-designed fur-trimmed suede boots and quilted nylon boots wrapped in chains. While the jewelry will be available from $39.99 up to $199.90, the shoes will start at a slightly higher price of $69.90 up to $199.95. There will also be a new version of Mariah Carey’s Luscious Pink fragrance and 25 bottles of the Luscious Pink Deluxe Edition fragrance -which will be priced at $275. The bottle will feature a Swarovski Elements-encrusted butterfly with a personal note from Mariah.

Mariah Carey has been an avid web-surfer and a loyal shopper of HSN, especially when her friend, Boyce, is on.

“It’s a classic, you have to keep it on. I do a very good impression of her.”

Well, soon she won’t have to do impressions anymore as Mariah will start selling her own stuff on November 29. Spoken like a true pro, Mimi said she has no pre-show jitters:

“I think it’s just about being yourself, explaining the different products and enjoying yourself. If I take it so seriously, and say, ‘Oh my god, It’s a Shakespearean moment,’ it’s not going to be fun. I am looking at it as something fun. This is an extracurricular activity for me and I am looking forward to it. It’s another creative outlet for me.”

And like a true designer, Mariah designed her line for HSN with the wearers in mind.

“When I don’t have a platform, we could have a traumatic moment, like a semi-spill on stage, which nobody wants. A platform shoe grounds you a little more. I try to make my designs more practical as well as pretty. One of the things I thought about was how I could do affordable, really nice, comfortable shoes that are still flattering to the leg.”

Can’t wait to get your Mariah Carey gear on HSN? Just wait patiently and take a look at what’s to come. From the looks of it, we say Go Mimi!

Kelly Osbourne To Launch Clothing Line

Ever since she got her new svelte figure, Kelly Osbourne has been more into the fashion world. When she started making appearances on Fashion Police with Joan Rivers, we had a hunch that it’s not gonna be long for her to launch her own clothing line.

Turns out it came true! Kelly Osbourne leaked that she’s coming up with her own clothing line soon, and she’s working with them on her birthday.

There’s no info yet on what the brand she’s collaborating with, but Kelly makes sure that she’ll have a partner on breaking her way into the fashion world. For some other celebrities, clothing lines might just about signing endorsement deals, but for Kelly, it’s a total commitment.

“I’m going to design for an already made line and then once I get enough experience and know what I’m doing I’ll do my own independent one. I don’t want to jump into something and not be able to swim.”

Kelly hinted that her collaboration with the mysterious brand will be available next year. Are you excited? Because we are!

Jersey Shore’s J-Woww Forced To Shut Down Clothing Line

Okay, this is weird. Just hours after we posted the news about Snooki coming up with her own line of slippers, we got news that her fellow Jersey Shore star, Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, is forced to shut down her clothing line. Remember? We reported her plan to do a fashion line called “Filthy Couture” not so long ago.

There were talks about ‘trademark issues’ as there’s also a company with a similar name threatening her with a lawsuit. A friend of J-Woww said “Money needed to be returned to the people who had ordered clothing.”

Radar Online reported that J-Woww’s friend said:

“She couldn’t handle the clothing line and didn’t really have the help she needed.”

The friend also said that J-Woww has given up on her clothing line.

“She could have given her line a new name but instead just let it go. She’s no longer designing clothes for her line and I’m not sure if she’ll ever do it again.”

Awww… too bad. Wonder what Snooki has to say about this.

Scott Disick to Capitalize on Girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian’s Fame by Developing His Own Clothing Line

No matter what my feelings might be about what kind of person Scott Disick seems to be when he makes appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I have to admit that I think he is a pretty snappy dresser. The douchetastic Disick was at Us Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers party last month and announced that he is going to be putting out his own clothing line sometime next year. Kourtney Kardashian’s baby-daddy/boyfriend says that the line will feature “everything from shoes to clothing to cuff links to accessories.”

No further word has been mentioned since then, maybe Scott is hard Scott is hard at work? Doubtful, but we are quite sure that footage of his developing line will be featured on his girlfriend’s reality show. Perhaps the triple K’s will feature some of Scott’s close in one of their DASH stores? Not if Khloe has anything to do with it!

Tina Knowles Moved “Miss Tina” Clothing Line To Walmart

Beyoncé Knowles’ mother, Tina Knowles, is known for her fashion design ventures since the Destiny Child days.  The Deréon and House of Deréon co-owner came up with her own line “Miss Tina” a while back, and she continues to enjoy the fruits of her hard work.

Just recently, Miss Tina moved into Walmart, after previously partnering with the Home Shopping Network.  Moving into its new ‘home’, the line expanded its sizes up to size 18.  Tina Knowles commented about the upsizing:

“I’m the best model for this.  I’m busty, I’m full under the arms and around the back. I couldn’t wear jackets or a white button-down shirt before, and I don’t want bare arms. All I was looking for was a jacket that actually closed.”

Tina Knowles and the new Miss Tina collection

Tina is convinced that women want the same thing, no matter what their sizes are.  Therefore she put a lot of thought in Miss Tina’s creation process.

“These clothes are all made with the thought process to make you look slimmer and taller.  Every dress has some draping and ruching, everything has stretch, even the leather jackets. Sand-blasting on jeans? That’s not great for most figures and you won’t find it here.”

We’re loving Tina Knowles more and more as she shared her style advice:

“The best thing you can do is take your time to study your own style, then the individual pieces will come naturally.”

Here are some peeks of Miss Tina hot items that are available in Walmart right now.  Guess what, they’re sold at about $10 to $15.  Pretty amazing, right?

Miss Tina Jersey Tunic, $15

Miss Tina Velour Hoodie, $15

Lil Kim To Launch Clothing Line

In 2004, Lil Kim launched her “HollyHood” clothing line, but for some reasons, we don’t hear from that brand anymore. There’s good news, though, if you’re a hard core Lil Kim fan, the hip hop lady has just unveiled her latest venture in the fashion world as she launched a new clothing line called 24/7 Star: Goddess Collection. The fashion line debuted at Charlotte, North Carolina Fashion Week last weekend. 24/7 Star: Goddess Collection features sexy numbers including embroidered dresses, cat suits and other pieces.

Seems like Lil Kim is trying out everything related to beauty these days as she opened her second Salon Se Swa beauty parlor in Charlotte North Carolina.

Here’s a peek of Lil Kim’s 24/7 Star: Goddess Collection clothing line at its debut show. We’re delightedly surprised by her subtleness and if you’re thinking the line will show a lot of skin, well, you’re not exactly right. The line actually shows a different, more classy side of the typical Lil Kim look, although we can see her signature sexy attitude here and there. So, would you wear the brand?

Sean John Goes to Europe

Hip hop mogul, Sean Combs aka P. Diddy, has planned to bring his clothing label “Sean John” to Europe since three years ago, but it only happened now. What gives?

“We had planned on [bringing the collection to Europe] three years ago but then the recession came and we really wanted to focus on making sure we stayed consistent in the U.S. But right now with what’s going on economically in Europe there’s opportunities, because people still need exciting things going on in their stores to keep people coming in…we feel now the time is right to really start the conversation.”

Diddy showed the men’s and women’s line of Sean John at London’s Sanderson Hotel to potential partners. Word is, Sean John could begin retailing in Europe in Fall 2011. But how will Europeans react to Diddy’s designs? Steven McSween, Vice President of design for Sportswear and Licensed Collection at Sean John stated:

“The feedback we’ve been hearing…is that the aesthetic has surprised some people — it already does feel like it has a European flair to it. There’s historical men’s references, but just done a little cooler and a little cleaner to epitomize [Combs’] lifestyle.”

Diddy wowed the crowd with his ‘unexpected’ collection as well, as the Sean John lineup consist of men’s sweaters with intarsia military motifs, slim fit men’s jeans in faded khaki washes and silk bomber jackets. There was also the dressier and dapper side of Sean John which included navy blazer with silver buttons, and also women’s line which showcased tailored leather jackets. Diddy commented on the reaction:

“Almost anyone who has come here today was like, ‘I thought the product would have logos on it, I thought it would be baggy,’ when actually it’s timeless fashion, it has a little aspiration and it’s very clean…it’s great product.”

Of course it is a great brand, otherwise we won’t be suggesting you to get yourself Sean John stuff. Speaking of which, here are our recommendations today for you, Ladies and Gents:

Sean John Short Chic Trench, was $69, now $53.99

Sean John Taped Jacket, was $78, now $66.99

Sean John Hooded Wool Blazer, was $175, now $133.99

Sean John Noir Cardigan, $88

Jeezy Celebrates His Birthday and Talks Relaunching of 8732

Southern rapper, Young Jeezy celebrated his 33rd birthday yesterday at Butter with a “few” of his closest friends including Fabulous, Adrienne Bailon, and model Tanaya Henry.

The rapper and fashion entrepreneur also recently spoke out about his clothing line, 8732, which was believed to be on hiatus or discontinued. In an interview earlier this month Jeezy says that his line is back in full force and that “8732 has matured, just as I have.” I would expect to see some new looks coming out very soon.

Ali Lohan Models For Lindsay Lohan’s 6126 Fashion Line

Let’s forget Lindsay Lohan’s troubles for a while, because the long-kept secret of the Lohan family has just surfaced on the internet.  Meet Ali Lohan, Lindsay’s younger sister, who we’ve always seen standing around in the background and within the reality show “Living With The Lohans” a couple of years back.  Now Ali has bloomed into a pretty young thing, and she kickstarts her modelling career by posing for her sister’s clothing line, 6126.

In the rather provocative photos for the ad campaign, Ali portrayed a sexy femme fatale, showing off 6126’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. The sixteen year old vixen is a late bloomer compared to her sis, but seeing her poses, we think there’s still positive hope for Ali, not to travel the road Lindsay went through. Enough about the gossipy stuff, check out the clothes -which are a surprisingly nice extension from 6126’s original legging specialty.

Madge, Lola, and Momsen Dress to Impress for “Material Girl” Line Launch @ Macy’s Herald Square

Last night was the official launch of “Material Girl”, a clothing line designed by Madonna and her daughter Lourdes a.k.a Lola at Macy’s Herald Square location in Manhattan. Also in attendance was the “face” of the line, Taylor Momsen.  All three ladies were dressed in the style of the line – a girly meets rocker-chic look, for the girl that will paint her nails pink right after punching you in the face.

Speaking of being punched in the face, Taylor Momsen’s eyeliner gave the Gossip Girl starlet the look of someone with two black eyes…or a raccoon. Pair her dramatic eye make-up with her signature “maybe I haven’t washed my hair in a few days” blonde locks, over the knee boots and strapless mini dress (both from the “Material Girl” collection), Momsen looked more fitted to be at a “Rock of Love” function then a teen girl clothing line launch.

As a stark contrast, the mother-daughter celebrity design team looked very fashionable; though some might argue Lola’s outfit wasn’t entirely appropriate for a thirteen-year old. Hey, with a momma like Madonna are we really surprised she isn’t he polo and khaki capris type of girl? At least she isn’t dressed like Taylor Momsen.
