WWD has ranked the top celebrity & fashion relationships, based on the number of doors which the celebrities sell in. While the list includes such pop divas such as Gwen Stefani, Hilary Duff, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonce’s House Of Dereon, there are a few surprises.
Ranking #1 on the list, with 5,100 doors was teen queen Hilary Duff, riding on the success of both her With Love fragrance and Stuff By Hilary Duff. Urban labels Baby Phat, Apple Bottoms by Nelly and Rocawear by Jay-Z round out the top four, each in approximately 3,000 doors.
Mary-Kate and Ashley also make a valiant effort, coming in at #5 with 3,000 doors. The number of retail locations drops significantly at #6 with G-Unit by 50 cent selling at only 1,110 locations. The rest of the lines sell at 1,000 doors and less, with House of Dereon at #7, Daisy Fuentes by Daisy Fuentes at #8, L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani at #9, William Rast by Justin Timberlake at #10, Edun by Bono at #11, J’Aime by Jaime Pressly, and JLO by Jennifer Lopez coming in at #12.
The celebrity-turned designer craze isn’t over - even if the market is oversaturated. Rod Stewart’s daughter Kimberly has signed a lingerie deal with Ultimo, Paris Hilton has an apparel line ready to launch for back-to-school, plus Sienna Miller and Salma Hayek’s collaborations with their sisters, not to mention swirling rumors of Naomi Campbell, Lindsay Lohan, Victoria Beckham, Katie Holmes-Cruise, and yet another Jennifer Lopez line.
Are there any celebrities you wish would put out a line? Any you wish would stop?
