These days, celebrities gauge their success not by awards or ratings, but by product sales. In case you needed a celeb-endorsed purse, jeans, perfume, alcohol or, um, stripper pole, Wonderwall has got it here for you!
Pants-less wonder Lindsay Lohan is adding hosiery to her successful leggings line. WARNING: Do not use Lindsay's tanning spray right before wearing her hosiery or your tights may quickly deteriorate … much like your career … and your soul.
Rihanna and Kanye West just signed on with Jay Z's company Parlux to launch their own signature fragrances to be released Summer 2010. There's also a reported secret, third "well-established female artist" who will also release a perfume. Let's see, Jay-Z, Kanye, Rihanna … hmm, our money's on Heidi Montag. Her new single is off the hook!
Kendra Wilkinson is good at walking into her own jokes. Or pole dancing into them. She's starting her very own line of stripper poles. She told US Weekly, "It's like Carmen Electra's [line], but mine is better." Whew, because Carmen's poles were just plain cheap.
Justin Timberlake is starting his very own line of tequila. A spokesperson confirms, "This was one of his many meetings over the last two years in development of his tequila business." Coincidentally, Justin's relationship with Jessica Biel has been in development for two years. Maybe the tequila launch will coincide with their wedding. Forget champagne — let's toast the happy couple with shots of Timberquila!
Partnering with Earnest Sewn Jeans, Nicole Richie is adding shoes and purses to her already successful accessories line. The Earnest founder says, "We're creating a whole lifestyle around her aesthetic." That lifestyle being what now? Elevated and unattainable?
Elizabeth Hurley has launched a new swimwear line and has published a slew of photos of herself and other models in her bikinis. She has also enraged many health campaigners by saying she likes being airbrushed. Health advocates say that airbrushing helps create a distorted body image for young girls. You know what also does? Painfully thin models in bikinis.
David Arquette has teamed up with musician Ben Harper to launch the clothing line, Propr. David tells MySpace, "We want to make really comfortable clothes that people are comfortable in." You know, like purple hoodies and red track pants.
The Kardashian sisters' boutique Dash is in LA, but don't fret, you can purchase Kardashian candles, water bottles & all sorts of similar sexy items on their Web site. Kim frequently shops at her own boutique, possibly to give it publicity or maybe because she's just that meta.
Kate Moss has reportedly been working on a cookbook. That's right. According to a source at the Daily Mail, she's testing out recipes and they're "so easy to follow." Makes sense … mixing water with lemon and diet pills is simple and refreshing.
Kevin Federline has announced he's working on a kids' clothing line that's affordable and stylish. "I'm trying to take it seriously and make a quality product for kids, but not have parents pay like $500 or something ridiculous for a pair of jeans." But with recent reconciliation rumors surrounding Britney and Kevin, if he got back on the Britney payroll, maybe he'd change his tune and just design overalls out of hand-sewn hundred dolllar bills.
Gwyneth Paltrow is launching a clothing line with Zoe Tee's, aptly (and nauseatingly) called "Zoe Tee's Loves Gwyneth Paltrow." While she shows off lots of her simple fashions on everyone's favorite blog GOOP, she says this line will be more '70s rock-inspired. We're guessing the tagline will be, "She's a little bit privileged, she's a little bit rock 'n roll."
Cindy Crawford has teamed up with J.C. Penney to launch a home decor line. J.C. Penney reps say the line will offer affordable prices to accommodate the recession. Cindy decided to contribute to the line by posing naked covered in soapy water for Allure … while it has nothing to do with home decor or J.C. Penney, no one seemed to protest.
Federline should watch his back because Katie Holmes is developing a Suri-inspired kids' clothing line with celebrity stylist Jeanne Yang. Katie says, "We started about a year ago … trying to find comfortable clothing for our daughters that is also pretty and cute." No mention of affordable or recession-friendly. We're guessing this line probably won't end up on the J.C. Penney racks.
