Some celebrities translate their success on the big screen or music scene into personalized fashion lines that rake in millions of dollars of revenue. The result can catapult the (already well-known) founders of these clothing lines into big names in the fashion industry.
However, while many celebs may choose to pair up with big-name retailers and produce highly affordable apparel, purchasing pieces from these 10 celebrity clothing lines doesn't come cheap. With high-end materials, sustainably sourced vegan leather, and shoes handmade by third and fourth generation Italian shoemakers, these 10 brands don't cut corners when it comes to luxury. Scroll down to check out the top 10 most expensive celebrity clothing lines.
10 Rhianna, Fenty x Savage
Fenty x Savage, the latest venture from singer-actress-icon Rihanna, champions affordability and inclusive sizing, allowing customers of all body-shapes and price-points to find sexy, playful, and flattering lingerie.
Most offerings of Fenty x Savage lingerie are under $50, (allowing customers some leftover cash to spend on Fenty make-up!). Rihanna also hosted the Fenty x Savage fashion-show, a fun, inclusive dance, and lingerie show. It's estimated that Fenty x Savage is approaching $15o million in revenue.
9 Kanye West, Yeezy
Kanye West's already-iconic Yeezy collection is famous both its high-fashion, sportswear, and streetwear-inspired looks and for the hubbub surrounding its fashion shows. In Kanye's infamous 2017 Season 4 show, guests took an unglamorous shuttle to Roosevelt Island where they watched models collapse from heat-stroke and stumble in Yeezy's sky-high heels (yikes, indeed.)
Yeezy doesn't have its own website. However, enthusiasts hoping to get their hands on some monochromatic pieces can browse second-hand retailers for authentic pieces, like this $1,941 trench coat and this $519 "Holy Spirit" t-shirt.

The priciest shoe in SJP's collection is the $695 embossed leather, Julie boot.
