Certain celebrities must have something in their brain that makes them believe since they’ve been extremely successful in one venture in their life, it means they’ll be equally as amazing in other ventures as well. Unfortunately, this does not prove true in many cases, particularly when it comes to celebrity clothing lines. When a celebrity endorses a product, a lot of times followers might actually go running to it. But, does this mean that if they slap their name on the label of an atrocious shirt these people will still be willing to make those purchases? A lot of times, as you’ll see in this article, the answer is no.
Issues with celebrity clothing lines are aplenty. For one, some are placed into stores that their fans simply don’t shop in, making it hard to get people buying. Poor quality of clothing becomes an issue sometimes too, as Madonna’s Material Girl line has come to find out, when celebs attempt to make the clothing both super stylish and inexpensive. Also, to be frank, sometimes the clothes are just plain ugly (looking at you, Kanye West) and overly expensive, based on the demographic they’re trying to reach. At the end of the day, certain celebrities should just keep their distance from the fashion designing world. It’s possible they see others around them coming out with lines, so they think they should too. But we really, really wish they wouldn’t.
So, let’s get to it. Here are 10 celebrity clothing lines no one would ever wear.
10 Melissa McCarthy Seven7 — Melissa McCarthy
Melissa McCarthy. We genuinely love you, but why must you make us like you just one notch less by starting a clothing line? There’s simply no shot this is going to resonate with the masses, though we appreciate your effort. The brand’s mission goes: “Give woman a whole new closet. To make all women love to shop again. To help women lose ‘the uniform’ and discover their own personal style. To make women feel great about themselves!” Great mission, but we’re still going to take a big pass on this one.
9 Arthur George — Rob Kardashian
*Thinks of Rob Kardashian’s sock line* *Immediately cringes*
Arthur George is the name of Rob Kardashian’s luxury sock line, and can we just start by saying, “Oh Dear Lord.” Many of the socks say things on the soles like, “Carpe Diem,” “Sexy,” “Hot,” and “YOLO.” They are sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus department stores and go for $12 and up per pair.
8 Dream Out Loud — Selena Gomez
7 Nicki Minaj Collection — Nicki Minaj
6 Material Girl — Madonna
At first, the Material Girl clothing line — exclusively available at Macy’s — doesn’t seem too awful. Some of the clothes are pretty okay looking, and they offer a selection of everything from lingerie to leggings, denim, jackets and dresses all at moderate prices.
5 Kardashian Kollection — The Kardashian Sisters
4 The Snooki Shop — Snooki
3 CALIA — Carrie Underwood
2 Elizabeth and James — Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen
1 Adidas Yeezy — Kanye West
And, speaking of the hobo look, let’s discuss the number one clothing line no one in their right mind would ever wear — Adidas Yeezy by Kanye West. If you’ve seen the photos from the runway shows he’s had for the line (or the subsequent memes mocking the clothing and their price tags), you’re probably just as confused as we are about who would actually wear these items. Besides the Kardashian Klan, of course.
Virtually all of the items currently for sale from this line are about as plain as plain could be, in addition to appearing like they’ve already been worn a million times before you even purchase it. But, here’s the real zinger… some of the items cost more than your rent. Like the crew neck sweatshirt he sells for a whopping $1,690. Or the tapered track pants which go for $1,170. Thank you, Kanye. We all really needed something good to laugh about.
