These days, celebrities gauge their success not by awards or ratings, but by product sales. In case you've been dying for a celeb-endorsed purse, jumpsuit, perfume, alcohol or, um, stripper pole, Wonderwall has got it here for you!
Gisele Bundchen has launched a flip-flop line with the shoe company Ipanema. Something tells us that Gisele's flip-flops aren't gonna make us feel like world-class supermodels. Ten-inch spike heels would be a start.
She's pretty much an unpaid sponsor for Neuro energy drinks and the island of Maui, but for some reason neither wants to pay her for it. Weird. But now, pants-less wonder Lindsay Lohan is adding hosiery to her successful leggings line.
WARNING: While jacked up on Neurogasm, do not use Lindsay's tanning spray right before putting on her hosiery. Your tights may quickly deteriorate… much like your body … and 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 next summer. There's also a reported secret third, "well-established female artist" that 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!
Every night when you ask yourself, "How can I be more like Courtney Love?" you can rest assured knowing that you're only months away from stealing her style. With the financial backing from photographer David LaChapelle, she's opening her very own lingerie store on Sunset Strip. Don't worry, we'll pre-order a Victorian Gothic Trainwreck Corset for you.
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 [pole], 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 his coerced marriage proposal. Forget champagne, let's toast the happy couple with shots of Timberquila!
The Kardashian sisters' boutique Dash is in L.A., but don't fret. You can purchase Kardashian candles, water bottles, and similarly sexy items on their website. Kim frequently shops at her own boutique, possibly to give it publicity or maybe because she's just that meta.
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?
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.
Alyssa Milano recently launched an NBA line of women's apparel, Touch, featuring feminine sportswear. You know, for the tomboyish but girly, sports-loving but sexy everywoman. Oh never mind… that's just the everywoman in every man's dreams.
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 else does? Painfully thin models in bikinis.
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.
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 sale racks.
