Celebrities have a busy life running from place to place all day long. Being part of tours, performances, shows and award ceremonies doesn’t leave you much time for risky businesses so this is why we have to credit the ones that run that extra mile for their passion.
Here is a list of ten popular females from the entertainment business who crossed their ways with fashion.
10. Victoria Beckham
This former Spice Girl is really appreciated in the fashion world as she even won the “Designer of the Year Award”. Since she launched her collection “Victoria” in 2008, she only managed to grow her brand to one of the hottest in the biz.
9. Jessica Simpson
The Jessica Simpson Collection was launched by the artist in 2006 and since then it has grown bigger and bigger. Her brand earned $750 million in 2010 and is now easily bringing in over a billion a year.
8. Avril Lavigne
The line launched by Avril in 2008 which she described as a reflection of her own “Rock’N’Roll Lifestyle” made quite a buzz back then. In 2011, this was the line responsible for putting Kylie Jenner on the runway for the first time. The Brand is still cashing in for Avril.
Another usual client of the great fashion brands is Rihanna. Her first gig was with Armani, then Balmain and Puma, while more recently she collaborated with Manolo Blahnik and Dior. She even received the Fashion Icon Award at the 2014 Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards for her work.

Even if she didn’t have such a huge success with her fashion lines, Jennifer managed to garner quite some attention. Her “J. Lo by Jennifer Lopez”and “Sweetface” lines along, but her “Glow by J.Lo” was quite popular at the time and brought in some serious cash.
It was impossible for one of the most known figures of this century to not have some clothes under her name. The pop icon has four fashion brands under her belt till now along with huge names like H&M or Dolce & Gabbana.
Since 2006, Beyonce has had a say even in the World of Fashion. More recently, she launched a collection of athleisure pieces in collaboration with Topshop.
